Healthy hair is very important in making a good first impression. But for some of us keeping our hair healthy is not as easy as it seems. The first step in solving this problem is to understand the structure of the hair.
Hair is divided into 3 parts: bulb, root and hair shaft. The main component is a protein called keratin. Being a protein, keratin is formed by amino acids that are constantly produced in our body.
Hair consists of living parts formed by the bulb and root and a ‘dead’ part which is the only one that can be seen. The living parts get their nutrients from the blood so it is very important that you keep a proper healthy diet.
In order to maintain healthy hair, you need to keep it properly nourished. The hair is part of your body and as you take care of other organs like your heart or liver through your diet, the same goes for your hair.
The hair reflects your overall health. Illnesses and stress affect your hair which becomes lifeless and frizzy with a lot of split ends.
Unhealthy hair generally means a lack of vitamin B types. If the main problem is hair loss, lack of strength and shine; then you should consider adding more fish, chicken, milk and eggs into your diet which will provide you with vitamins like B5 and B12.
Lack of vitamin B6 is associated with dandruff and it is recommended that you eat liver, cereals and egg yolk. But if you find it hard to change your diet, you can buy vitamin B Complex from any pharmacy.
You should also know that high temperature does a lot of damage to your hair, so you need to be very careful when using a hair dryer. You should never keep it very close to your hair, even if it dries faster, because you risk deteriorating it in a very short time.
Also a gentle hair dryer is strongly recommended. You can try Sedu Ultrapower hair dryer or Sedu Revolution Pro.If you follow these tips, you will have healthy and shiny hair in no time.
