Five Ways to Beautify your Hair

It’s normal for your hair to occasionally give you trouble due to recent chemical treatments, a trip to the pool or changes in humidity; however, when your bad hair days outnumber the good ones, it’s a sign that there’s an underlying issue with your hair.  While every woman’s hair is different, all hair has a few of the same basic needs. By ensuring that your hair has all of the essential nutrients that it requires to grow healthy and strong, you can greatly improve the appearance of your hair. Having nourished, gorgeous tresses is easier than you might think; in fact, you can get great results by making just five simple changes to your hair care routine.

1. Get more omega 3s. Fatty acids, particularly omega 3s are an important nutrient in the structure of the hair strand. As much as 3 percent of each hair is composed of the fatty acid, and your body can’t manufacture it on its own, meaning that your entire supply must come from foods and supplementation. Increasing the amount of fresh fish, such as salmon, that you eat can make some difference, but for most of us, topical application of formulas that contain omega 3 fatty acids are necessary to truly get results. Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Shampoo is an easy way to treat your hair to omega 3 fatty acids, as it contains a caviar derivative that is rich in the key nutrient. The shampoo was clinically shown to restore shine and manageability in 100 percent of users’ locks during clinical testing.

2. Keep things moist.
A healthy hair strand is partially made up of water, and those vital droplets are constantly under the threat of evaporation due to the environment and the use of tools like hair dryers. This makes it important that you replenish lost moisture on a regular basis with a high quality conditioner like Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Conditioner. This formula also gives you the added benefit of a second dose of caviar, and Alterna sells it in an affordable two-pack with the shampoo in a product called the Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Duo.

3. Style right. Choosing shampoos and conditioners with beneficial ingredients will get you on the path toward healthier hair, but it won’t get you there on its own. To beautify your hair, you must be cautious about how you style. Avoid brushing wet hair and use a wide-toothed comb to minimize snags and breakage. When you utilize a thermal styling tool like a flat iron or the blow dryer, apply a thermal protectant to minimize the amount of evaporation that occurs. Follow your hairstylist’s recommendation for how frequently you should color or perm your hair and be willing to take a break from chemical treatments if your locks become stressed.

4. Address seasonal and hormonal changes.
Believe it or not, your hair’s thickness changes over the course of the year in response to the seasons. This doesn’t mean that you’re in danger of going bald at some point during the year, but it is likely that your hair may seem limper and devoid of body until it regains its thickness. Hormonal changes caused by pregnancy and menopause can also affect your hair’s volume. Typically, it’s not necessary to use prescription products to handle this type of temporary thinning; fine quality, over-the-counter hair regrowth and thickening treatments can typically help you overcome your symptoms until hair growth returns to normal. One of my favorite hair and scalp treatments for temporary thinning is Phyto Phytocyane Revitalizing Lotion. To deliver results, Phyto combines natural botanicals that work to increase the amount of circulation to the scalp, encouraging hair regrowth to help your locks rebound from thinning.

5. Fight stress. Doctors are becoming more willing to accept that stress has an affect upon the body, and it’s now clear that it can even impact the look of your hair. Stress can exacerbate temporary thinning, particularly when it is related to a sudden trauma or continues over a long period of time. If you know you’re going through a stressful chapter in your life, you can help to protect your appearance by using Phyto Phytocyane Revitalizing Serum to promote healthy growth.

Although I have highlighted some of my favorite products from top brands like Phyto and Alterna, there are other hair care solutions that can help you beautify your hair. The most important thing to remember is that the products that you use on your hair do matter, so take your time and fully research formulas before using them. This will help to ensure that you get the beautiful results that you deserve and that you don’t waste money purchasing inferior products.
