Did you know that Native Americans believe that hair is an extension of the self? It is also rumoured that long hair is an outward projection of the nervous system – some people even believe that having long hair makes you more intuitive. Whether you like long hair or not, having healthy hair looks good, and more importantly, it feels good. Here are some tips to get your hair to optimum health and growth.
Brush, Brush, Brush
When you brush your hair you stimulate the hair follicles, which promotes growth. Brushes made with natural bristles are your best option. You could also brush with oil to pull nourishment through to the ends. Brush every day, even if you are experiencing some hair loss. If you are concerned about losing hair try using Phyto-Force Rosemary or Phyto-Force Nettle.
Yes, You Are What You Eat
Because hair is made of protein, it is vital that you have enough of it in your diet. This doesn’t mean you have to have bacon for breakfast or steak every night. Beans, lentils, nuts and seeds also pack a powerful protein punch. In addition to protein, Omega 3s provide hydration and can easily be ingested with hemp seeds or as a daily supplement. Vitamin E also promotes hair growth and can be found in avocados, broccoli, almonds and sunflower seeds.
Natural All The Way
Whether it’s your shampoo or supplements, try to avoid harmful chemicals. Use an all-natural shampoo without parabens, sulfates and phthalates and boost your hair-growth with Bio-Logic Hair Growth from Phyto-Force.
Hard Water = Hard Hair
When water contains high levels of calcium and magnesium it can leave hair with a straw-like texture, no matter what products you use. A simple solution to this is to install a shower-head filter.
Create a Healing Hair Ritual
If you consciously and mindfully create a little routine, you are not only setting yourself up for awesome hair, you are also creating moments in which you are nurturing yourself. We all need a bit of pampering!
