Lust for healthy, strong hair knows no gender. Male or female, we all care about our appearance and a big part of appearance is played by our hair.
Maybe you are not as vein as the rest of us. In this case, think of hair as a symbol of good health. Healthy life results in healthy hair.
I bet this is not the first time you have heard this.
Have I caught you attention yet?
I sure hope so.
Because I am about to address an issue faced by majority of individuals; hair loss and how to fix it.
Hair thinning and hair loss is caused by a number of factors some which can be managed such as stress, and bad hair habits while others are irreversible such as aging.
There is also the bitter truth that some people were born with naturally thick hair while others not so much.
The good news is, while for some conditions it is hard to obtain voluminous and strong hair, 90% of the time healthy thick hair can be attained by simple tips you may be overlooking.
By following these tips, you will be flaunting your hair sooner than you expect.
Eat Your Way to Thick, Strong Healthy Hair
Most people in the past did not have as many hair problems as we have today. Come on, you have seen the pictures, those guys with thick hair that connected with the face to form a beard which if you were lucky formed a moustache.
What’s my point? In the past there was no snacks and processed food. People had to eat natural food. This brings forth the most important tip to having great hair, a healthy balanced diet.
A good balanced diet consisting of all food groups will provide hair with essential nutrients such as vitamin B and iron.
These are essential in providing hair with enough strength to prevent breakage. If you find it hard to get natural food, you can always opt for supplements that act as a substitute.
Although water is not food. I am going to throw it in there with food. Drinking water is not only vital for your general health but also moisturizes hair allowing you healthy and voluminous locks.
Adopt a Good Hair Regime
A good hair regime basically consists of cleaning, conditioning, deep treatment, moisturizing and regular trimming. Following a good regime will allow your hair to be strong and grow faster. This is due to the minimized hair breakage and optimal conditions for growth.
It is very important to use products with no sulfates or parabens which often end up drying and eventually breaking your hair. Minimal heat use on hair is also a bonus for growing thick healthy hair as too much heat is one of the leading causes of hair thinning and breakage.
By following a good regime and a little patience, you can get the hair of your dreams.
Before you roll your eyes and call it quits, nobody said you have to be Arnold Schwarzenegger or live at the gym. I like Arnold, plus he has good hair, probably because he works out. But that’s beside the point. My point is, a simple normal routine of any form of exercise at least twice a week will cut it.
Exercise allows blood circulation to reach your scalp replenishing it with needed nutrients and oxygen. To add to that, exercise results in overall body health which is vital for hair growth.
Regular Scalp Massages
Massaging your scalp allows blood flow to your scalp as well as production of sebum. This is important in encouraging new hair growth necessary for volume. Scalp massages should be done daily if possible or if you have no time, twice a week is enough. Oils can be used to massage as opposed to just using your hands.
The best massage oil for the scalp is coconut oil and castor oil which are known for encouraging hair growth. While massaging the scalp, care should be taken to avoid tangling of hair. Scalp massages are done in circular motions using the finger tips.
Getting Treatment for Thick Hair
If for whatever reasons your hair cannot be manipulated to grow through natural means or you simply do not have the patient required to nature thick hair, there is another out for you. Hair treatment both surgical and non-surgical have been used to grow thicker hair for a while now.
Non-surgical treatments such as over the counter hair products and UV and infra-red light treatments have shown tremendous success in providing clients with thick healthy hair. While surgical treatments are more invasive, they are considered a fast and sure means by many especially those experiencing balding or suffering from alopecia.
A good example is hair transplant surgeries that in most cases have a breakthrough period of only six months. This stage is considered by most people as a last resort when all the tips above have failed.
- Thick strong hair is maintained by avoiding hair breakage and hair loss. Good hair practices that minimize hair loss are therefore vital to this goal.
- Hair extensions can be used to achieve temporary and fast hair volume as you wait on your hair to grow.
- Managing stress has helped encourage hair growth as stress is one of the causes of hair loss.
- Optimize the use of essential oils such as rosemary and peppermint that promote hair volume and growth.
- Using of a volume enhancing shampoo can also prove advantageous in attaining volume.
- Proper styling of hair can give the illusion of high volume in hair.
Getting beautiful, healthy, thick hair is not as hard as it seems. It just requires a few lifestyle changes and adopting some habits that encourage hair growth.
Thanks to advancements in technology, thick hair is now easier to attain than ever before. With a little patience and consistency, you will definitely get the gorgeous hair you lust for.
