“Hair brings one’s self image into focus; it is vanity’s proving ground. Hair is terribly personal, a tangle of mysterious prejudices”
– Shana Alexander.
Healthy hair is the crucial accessory which adds to the overall beauty of a woman or a man. One should keep the hair in healthy condition and maintain in order to get lustrous, damage free, shiny and lush locks.
In order to overcome these woes one can simply follow certain advices which will not only help one’s tresses to grow but also to cure damaged hair.
Combing the wet hair is not advisable as they are more prone to breaking. Always allow the hair to dry. Using proper bristles is the key to enhance blood circulation to hair root which facilitates growth.
Deep conditioning of this is necessary once in every 10 days because of which the hair shaft and strands become strong. Along with strengthening it also helps in opening of cuticles so that essential nutrients and ingredients can penetrate and nourish to get healthy growth.
Washing the hair is the best way to keep it clean and dirt free. Oily scalp and hair follicles tend to attract more dust and dirt which clogs the root end. This can lead to itchy, scaly skin that may hamper the growth. Ensure that the hairbrush and hair clips are devoid of old dirt and residues. It may be advisable to clean the comb and brush with a proper cleanser.
Split hair can be another problem which hinders growth; hence intermediate hair cutting ensures long gleaming healthy hair. The ends of hair are more porous due to rough handling, coloring, perming and exposure to heat appliances and as a result the hair fails to grow further.
It is rightly said that you are what you eat, the main crux to get healthy hair is to have a balanced meal which includes leafy vegetables, cereals, citrus fruits, milk products, spinach, apricots, whole grains etc. Food rich in iron and zinc is essential in faster and growth; hence one should supplement meals with iron and zinc rich ingredients.
Ayurveda herbs like brahmi, amalaki, bhringaraj, rosemary, lavender and hibiscus are known to provide excellent tonic for this tuff. These herbs help stimulating the hair follicles thereby promoting hair growth. They even retard premature hair graying and thinning. Above all stress reduction is additional benefit of Ayurveda herbs which help in getting beautiful, shiny and healthy hair naturally.
