Thicker stronger hair

Frustrated by brittle, fragile hair? Feeling jealous any time you see someone with strong, thick and flowing hair? Fed up with trying different treatments and lotions to get the hair you’re really wanting?

Good news: you’re not alone!

So before you give yourself a buzzcut, take hope and see if the following tips can help you solve your hair blues.

There are plenty of salons in Sydney who can help you turn your difficult “bird’s nest” into a healthy crown you can be proud of.

Diet – Foundation to Thicker Healthier Hair

healthy hair with dietFor example, Sydney hairdresser Stephen Foyle is asked this question every other day by customers just like you seeking help with their hair. However his answer may surprise you – he suggests to start with your diet.

Rather than invest hundreds of dollars in expensive lotions & goop, first take a look at the fuel you’re giving your body. Just like a race-winning stallion isn’t fed hamburgers, if you want to look (and feel) your best, it makes sense to monitor the kinds of foods you’re consuming, right?

Iron is one of most important things your hair needs to be thick and strong. If you find your iron levels are low, you can improve them by eating chicken, egg-yokes, lentils and spinach. Maybe try a couple of eggs covered in spinach for a healthy protein-rich start to your day. Ditch the toast and / or cereals for a few days and see if you don’t notice a difference!

You’ll also want to check your Vitamin B and Zinc levels. Basically – lots of green veggies! Experiment with adding vegetables to your lunch and dinner. Maybe a chicken & avocado salad for lunch… some almonds or cashews in the afternoon… and plenty of water throughout the day to keep yourself hydrated.

It’s worth noting you should definitely check-in with your dietician or health specialist before undertaking a drastic change in diet! Everybody is different and this site is not in any way providing clinical health advice – so be sure to do your own investigation before committing.

While diet is foundational to healthier, thicker hair, it’s not the only factor to consider.

Hair Improvement Products

Sometimes your hair really does need some special treatment, which is where Sachajuan Overnight Hair Repair may be required.

Just be careful to go with only trusted brands – cheap “me too” products may end up doing more damage to your hair through the use of damaging chemicals.

Seek Help from Your Hair Salon

If you’re in doubt about the type of treatment you should apply to your hair, just check in at your local Sydney hair salon and let them guide you down the right path.

It’s important you don’t make any rash decisions when it comes to your hair. Your most powerful weapon in the war on bad hair is research! You’ve got an abundance of resources available online at sites like this, as well as offline with your local hairdresser.

By following the tips in this article and getting guidance from your stylist – and your dietician – you’ll be on your way to thicker, healthier and stronger hair in no time!

Healthy Apple – Better Food for Better Hair

healthy-apple-diet-tips

Remember the old rhyme you learned as a kid – “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”? Although it’s more of a cliche today than a recipe for better health, science is showing there’s a very strong tie between the foods we eat and the condition of our body – including our hair.

In fact, one of the best things you can do to encourage healthy locks is to eat a healthy diet and keep up a steady intake of water throughout the day.

Food for Performance

Let’s say you invested a couple million dollars in a new race horse (you know, just for fun, with all that spare cash you’ve got lying around). You want that fine creature to be at its best performance, not only on race day, but every day – wouldn’t you? If so, chances are you wouldn’t feed it hamburgers and diet soft-drinks, right?

You’d be investing further in the horse’s dietary needs to ensure you were maximising the investment you’d already made in the horse itself. It’s likely it would cost you a lot more than “general horse food”, but hey – it’s a race horse who has to run and win!

So… why wouldn’t you take the same pains with your own body?

Garbage In…

MourningRomney-diet-tipWe all know the feeling of over-eating, or indulging too much in rich foods and alcohol. That feeling is your body’s way of telling you that you messed up, but many times it’s just easier to ignore that prompt.

But it stands to reason that if you really want to get the most out of your day – and look great during the process – a healthy diet is critical to your success.

Where to Start With a Healthier Diet

Don’t get caught up in the latest “trendy” diet hitting the internet or tabloids. Those dangerous diets are often touted by celebrities who have more time and more money than you do (along with dedicated personal dieticians and trainers) so you can never compare your own results to theirs!

The best thing you can do is to contact your local nutritionist for a free consultation to explore your own specific health needs.
