Avoid Drama With Your Hair
My dear , beloved father always used to teach my older brother, saying:”If you want to compliment a woman, praise and admire her hair.”...Well daddy was right as always)))
That’s a known fact; men love long, gorgeous, healthy looking hair. It is strange, but we rarely pay much attention to the care of our hair when it is healthy and beautiful. However, as soon as our daily washing and blow drying becomes a struggle, and our tears begin to flow over a brush full of lost hair, and we are screaming at the mirror “SOS” in panic, we run to the closest hair products store, and pray for relief. We all hope for the opportunity to restore our hair, make it grow, and begin to recive those wonderful compliments again! Can we do it at home, more affordably, and with greater rewards? The answer is … Absolutely! As my Grandma would always say, “There is no better remedy than home masks.”
Im sure we can agree that most of the time we care far more for skin than our hair. At the first sign of a wrinkle, we grown concerned, and the drama begins … So, we always carry serums, creams, and face lifting masks in order to prevent and counteract the symptoms AND the drama …. Why don’t we care that much about our hair? Especially when our hair, most of the time, shows symptoms of serious unbalance in our body. Furthermore, our hair lacks a natural ability to nourish itself, due to the poor blood circulation at the scalp.
So… clearly, we know what the problem is, but how do we protect ourselves … what is the solution to this dilemma? What is it that we are doing wrong in our everyday routine that so negatively influences our hair?
Honestly, that answer is not really a secret – It is a cliché, but it is also a fact: “We are what we eat!” Therefore, the first thing that we have to do is balance our diet. Our bodies should receive all of the necessary vitamins and microelements required to keep our scalp and hair healthy within the food we consume.
Here is a list of a few items which really impact our hair:
1. Active and/or passive smoking, terribly affects your hair structure.
2. Strong coffee and teas affect your blood circulation.
3. This one may surprise you, but some women face a similar problem as men: Hair loss … although not as prominent and noticeable as with men, women do experience it! Typically, a woman will run to the doctor with the first sign of hair loss, and a man will simply neglect it!
4. Your hair loses its luster and shine, simply through daily styling, ironing, and blow drying.
5. Some of us live in areas with strong atmospheric and/or ecological pollution. It is not a stretch to say that our skin and hair become affected by these pollutants.
6. Improper hair care leads to the retardation of its growth; another reason why it is so important to properly select hair care products for your individual daily routine. Shampoo your hair daily if necessary, use thermo protection products for blow drying or ironing, take hair supplements and vitamins, and avoid hair color products containing ammonia.
I hope you learned something new,
