Everyone loves their hair to be healthy – it is when it looks at its best. Here are the top tips for nutritional support for your hair.
Hair is your crowning glory, and for some of us, it plays a big part in showing your personality to the world. We all love having healthy, shiny locks, and there are lots of things we can do to look after your hair. From the beauty products we choose to the best dietary choices for hair – here are some top tips to consider.
The Health Benefits of Biotin and Zinc
Biotin plays several essential roles in the body, including converting food into energy, supporting normal hair and skin, and contributing to normal psychological function.
Supplementing your diet with a multivitamin food supplement, such as Seven Seas Perfect 7 Woman Plus, helps support general wellbeing. Seven Seas Perfect 7 Plus contains Biotin, Selenium and Zinc – all three help keep your hair healthy.
In addition, Zinc is an essential mineral found in nuts, seeds, dairy and eggs. Zinc plays an important role in your health and wellbeing. Zinc supports the normal function of the immune system, contributes to normal protein synthesis plus supports normal fertility and reproduction. Seven Seas Perfect 7 Woman Plus provides you with Zinc as it is also involved in maintaining normal hair, skin and nails.
How to take care of your hair
We all wish a magic supplement we could take to support hair growth, but sadly it just does not exist. Hair grows around an inch a month, but it can feel like less if your hair is susceptible to breakage. It is prevalent in those who have dry and damaged hair. Hair is easily damaged by various factors, including dry weather, low humidity, and heat and chemical use. Regular hair trims may seem counter-intuitive, and contrary to popular belief, they will not help your hair grow faster, but they are great for preventing split ends from travelling up the hair shaft, causing damage and the dreaded frizz!
Going easy on the heat styling tools will also do wonders for the health of your hair. Regular blow drying, straightening and curling are all responsible for damage over time. Try leaving your hair to dry naturally, as this can improve their condition over time.
Tips for Healthy Hair
There are many ways to get your hair into excellent condition.
Weekly or monthly hair masks are great for adding shine and softness to dull, dry hair. A simple DIY hair mask worth trying would be a mixture of protein-rich egg yolk, coconut oil and honey. Leave on wet hair for up to 30 minutes with a towel wrapped around it, and leave to dry naturally.
Why not try heatless curls for a natural ‘beachy’ look. Let your hair air dry until it is around 80% dry, then twist into two tight buns and leave overnight. Make sure you use a styling cream or oil to keep the frizz at bay.
Food supplements can also support your hair condition, but they must not replace a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
