Hair. Why can’t we all have nice, full heads of it? If you’re not one of the lucky ones naturally gifted with a full head of hair, fear no more. Armed with the tips we’ve provided below we think you’ll be in a great position to preserve (or regrow!) that lovely hair for as long as possible.
1. Get enough protein in your diet.
Proteins are a critical ingredient necessary for stimulating hair growth, helping new hair grow where previous hair has fallen. Just do your research and make sure you’re getting your protein from healthy sources.
2. Make sure you have enough iron.
Having a lack of iron in the diet causes hair to weaken and fall out. Keeping levels in check can make sure this doesn’t happen. We suggest eating spinach specifically for a definitively healthy source of iron.
Did you know that a large contributor to hair loss is actually all in your head? Stress is actually a significant factor leading to hair loss. In order to reduce stress, we suggest meditating. There are a lot of great mobile apps out there right now that can help guide you through meditation in as little as 10 minutes per day. Specifically, we recommend checking out the apps Headspace or Calm, available in the Android and iOS app stores.
4. Massage the head.
It sounds funny, but massaging your head can actually stimulate circulation and assist in draining toxins. Some suggest that massaging with coconut oil can help to amplify this effect, as the vitamins and fatty acids in coconut oil serve to nourish the scalp, remove sebum build-up, and even help regrow hair.
Among it’s countless other health benefits, exercise causes sweat on the scalp which results in the unclogging of hair follicles, allowing new space for hair to grow. It also increases blood flow to the head and scalp, carrying essential nutrients for hair growth with it.
Armed with the following tips, we think you’ll be in a great position to improving your hair. We suggest implementing these tips as soon as possible while they are still fresh in the mind. So get on it and let us know how it goes!
