Introducing 5 Sensational Foods That Will Grow Your Hair

One of the questions I get asked a lot is “How can I grow my hair?” you would think it was the secret to life the way so many do research to find the answer. Everyone wants healthy hair and will practically do anything to get it. If I wrote an article stating how jumping up and down on one foot helps growth and had it backed by science, there would be some who would try.

Thankfully, I’m not here to tell you that’s the answer. Instead I’m here to provide an old school way to help your hair growth. I’m so surprised at how many people neglect this but hopefully you will take my advice.

Healthy hair starts with a healthy diet

boom.gif

There’s no way around it. You are what you eat! If you’re consistently eating poor and putting anything in your stomach then expect it to release from your skin and your hair. You can’t expect to grow long locks on a diet of juice and McDoubles, you need nutrients to make your hair grow.

TECHNOLOGI

Promoting nutrients in your daily meals will help you evade hair loss and will even make new hair pop out of your head to fill all those previously thin patches for a fuller, more glamorous look. So, without further wait, we give you the following list which describes the different foods that you can eat in order to get your dream Rapunzel hair.

Salmon:

food-dinner-lemon-rice.jpg

This meal is full to the brim with hair growth promoters like vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids aka “the good fat”, that target your scalp. They help keep this surrounding base of your hair healthy and nourished to make excessive hair growth a possibility. After all, strong hair will only sprout from a healthy ground.

Oysters:

oysters-1512278.jpg

If you have never considered trying this delicacy out, you may want to give it a go now! Oysters are rich in a metal called zinc. The deficiency of this metal in your body causes your hair to drop and makes your scalp unhealthy. However, eating only 5 ounces of this seafood can give you enough zinc to boost your hair growth to maximum levels. It also clears up your scalp to provide the healthy environment that your hair needs to stay happy. Your dream of that long flowing braid may actually be realized.

Eggs:

food-breakfast-egg-milk-large

Eggs have long been rumored to benefit your hair and we will tell you the real reason why. Egg yolk is extremely rich in proteins that help strengthen the basic structure of your hair. Furthermore, it also contains omega-3 fatty acid, which is the ‘good’ fat and biotin, the vitamin which makes your hair grow fast. All these combined can increase your hair growth to give you long lengths in a very short time. Remember, it is the yolk that contains the goodies. Eat them to avail a multitude of nutrients that go straight to your hair!

Yellow peppers:

peppers-1328902

Vitamin C is a great plus for your hair. It is an antioxidant, having properties which help strengthen the hair so that your lank of hair can grow to extreme lengths without the fear of breakage. It also helps to make the hair bases strong so that they resist pulling and don’t come off as easily as before. Oranges contain vitamin C but yellow bell peppers have 5 and a half times the amount in an orange, clearly stating why they are such an excellent option to include in your diet.

Avocado:

fruit-avocado-1562329.jpg

It is no secret that avocados hold the tonic of beauty, so it comes as no surprise that avocados house a bucket load of benefits for your hair. They contain a high content of essential fatty acids, which are great for your hair. They also stimulate the production of fibrous tissue in your hair that helps ground them firmly to your scalp so that it becomes difficult for them to fall off. This enables strong hair, which means your hair can grow longer as they won’t fall off as soon as they lengthen.

Needless to say, your diet plays an essential role in keeping you healthy and beautiful in every way. Your hair also needs you to eat the healthy nutrients instead of the pointless junk that you keep putting in your mouth.

Clearly, for healthier, longer and thicker hair, some dietary modifications are in order. A little addition here and a little change there can make a big difference. Of course, you can’t expect to have a foot length of hair added to your head overnight, but trust us, slowly and surely your hair will certainly grow into the dream locks that you always wanted.

How To Protect Your Hair From Chlorine

Pool parties and beach trips might be everyone’s favorite summer time fun activity. Who wouldn’t want to throw on a bikini with a sassy cover up and strut around with a margarita in hand?

Most of us spend hours online searching for the perfect swimsuit and researching the perfect hairstyle, but did you ever stop to think of researching how to protect your hair from the chlorine?

1510086725472791078

No matter how ratchet or fancy a pool is, you can guarantee that there is a ton of chlorine in it. The chlorine helps keep the pool clean and eliminates any bacteria that can form inside of the pool. This is great for keeping your health safe but can be detrimental to your hair.

Chlorine can cause your hair pH balance to shoot up and dry your hair out. It only takes one pool dive to cause damage to your hair and yet it takes months to repair it. This is why it’s important to take the proper precautions to your hair by doing the following:

WEARING A SWIM CAP – You might be thinking “well, DUH!” in your head but I bet you probably don’t even wear one when you’re swimming and who could blame you? Think back to summer of 97 when everyone was sent off to sleep away camps with swim caps packed away (thanks to mom). It wasn’t exactly the most stylish accessory and it was very uncomfortable. Thankfully, you have innovative brands like Sporti who make cute swimming caps in different styles and colors.

swimcap

Wearing a swimming cap is your number one defense against Chlorine. It’s the most protection you can get for your hair while taking a dip in the pool. By creating a barrier against the chemicals and your hair, you are saving yourself a ton of damage. A good alternative could be a plastic cap or shower cap also. If you have a lot of hair, just throw it back into a scrunchie on the top of your hear or in the back and then place the cap over it.

RINSE OR CONDITION BEFORE SWIMMING – If you’re not sold on the idea of wearing a cap, then I suggest rinsing or conditioning your hair before you go into the pool. By doing this, your hair will absorb the water which means less absorption of chemicals when you go swimming. By putting in conditioner it also creates a barrier between your hair and the chlorine. You can also use shea butter or coconut oil to create a barrier to protect your hair.

TECHNOLOGI

WASH YOUR HAIR IMMEDIATELY AFTER SWIMMING – I don’t care if you have braids, twists, extensions, or even faux locs, YOU MUST WASH YOUR HAIR AFTER SWIMMING! A lot of people think since they have “protective styles” in that they can skip out on shampooing their hair after swimming. You’re doing more damage than you think.

The chlorine that your hair absorbed while you swam can be trapped inside the hair if you don’t wash your hair. This could mean weeks of chlorine sitting in your hair causing your hair to dry. You can still shampoo your braids and use a squeeze bottle to get into those strands that are braided. I personally prefer crochet braids because they are easier to get into.

TECHNOLOGI (1)

Now that you are armed with knowledge use that power to give your hair the treatment it deserves. I know August is a big time for people to travel and hit up pool parties so if you plan on going under, I suggest taking these tips so that your hair remains healthy.

These 4 Ingredients in Your Fav Shampoo Could Damage Your Hair

 

Hair is one vanity that men and women alike, idolize. That bush on your head is one of your most prized assets. We want nothing but the best for our hair, we choose the best stylist, the best vitamins, and even the best hair products.

But how do we know if we’re really getting the best product for our hair? Just because it has a big name, doesn’t mean it’s guaranteed protection. The proof lies within the pudding and in our case that pudding is the ingredients.

TECHNOLOGI

Do we even look at the ingredients? No! Do we try to find out which of the chemicals may harm us? Definitely not! For us, the popularity of the brand is proof enough of the credibility of the product.

Little do we know that many famous brands are guilty of incorporating chemicals into their hair care products which do give a wow effect in the start, but if used consistently are a cause of extensive and irreparable damage for hair growth.

Do we have your attention? Yes, they can cause irreparable harm to your vain length. To protect you and for the exclusive benefit of your hair, we present a list of the most harmful chemicals that if present, should immediately raise the red flag!

The Hair Breakers:

xkThis group of ingredients is a big No. If applied on a regular basis they strip your hair of moisture and can eat away at your hair strands, weakening them to the extent that they literally break off. The horror they cause is certainly imaginable. The worst part is, once broken, the hair is so fragile that its future growth is likely to stop. So, whenever you find an ingredient label saying Isopropyl alcohol, simply put it right back on the shelf as your hair is certainly better off without it.

 

The Brittle-hair agents:

This group containing Ethylene glycol is used to dissolve and absorb the oils from your hair. In effect, it basically just evaporates the entire oil content from your strands in the name of a fresher look. You may be surprised to find out that this chemical was originally used to clean ovens. Yes, clean ovens…

disgusted012

How can a chemical, so harsh, be beneficial to your sensitive and soft hair? What shine would be left after you use such products on your mane? Would your hair ever be healthy again?  We leave you to decide whether or not to put this ingredient on the red list.

 

 

The Hair Driers:

You may often find yourself wondering why your hair is suddenly so rough and dry. It was fine 2 weeks ago and got even better when you tried out that new shampoo, but why isn’t it working now?

tumblr_inline_mh9ctzGaVK1qz4rgp

The reason is that certain chemicals in a hair product don’t show their effect early. However, on prolonged use, you may find your hair becoming increasingly dry, day by day. Chemicals like Sulphuric acid and Sodium Laurel are all part of the culprit group. Initially, they do make your hair look healthy but it’s downhill from then on. Trust us, it’s better to avoid such ingredients at all cost.

 

The Scalp Irritators:

There is a group of chemicals that go deeper than the hair. They target your scalp which is the actual growing part of your mane. The most notable of the agents is polyethylene glycol. The chemical is so two-faced that one can go as far as to call it a “wolf in sheep’s clothing”.

giphy

While damaging and eating away the constituent protein of our hair and the scalp, the chemical gives off a false charm of smooth and shiny hair. We suggest you avoid using products that use this chemical, as the damage it does can not only cause your hair to fall out but may also cause certain diseases of the scalp.

JOIN OUR LIST

With all these advancements in science, the chemical world has come up with shortcuts to better hair care. Sad to say, not all of them are actually beneficial for your hair and require due thought before application. Putting on a shampoo or a conditioner or even a hair spray, we never realize what chemicals we are exposing to our hair. However, if we keep on underrating the importance of finding out what we put on our head daily, it may be too late. Clearly, it’s impossible to ever have the glorious hair in the commercials, on the contrary, using brands unknowingly may ultimately cost you your own hair!
