Happy Valentine's day!
I would say I have days that I love my hair and days that I am not so in love with my hair. On such days, I usually have my hair covered with a hat or beanie.
But shouldn't we all love our hair. We love ourselves, right?
So, what does your hair need to be loved (to look healthy)?
Moisture is very important for the health of your hair. If your hair is not moisturized, it will break. There is no way around it. Keeping your hair clean and moisturized will promote healthy hair and growth. One way to moisturize your hair is using the LOC method. Liquid, Oil, and Cream. Simple.
There are several vitamins in the market geared towards hair care. Protein is the number one vitamin that the hair needs. If you look at the ingredients on your hair product bottles, some may already contain protein. Protein helps strengthen your hair if it is brittle, and it also coats and fills the hair shaft. Also, you can take vitamins such as Biotin which is beneficial to skin, nails and hair.
Your hair needs to be protected against elements that can damage it. Using different protective styles to keep your ends from splitting and your hair from breaking can help promote growth. Whereas, using a lot of heat and using pony tails all the time can cause your hair to break. Your night routine also comes into play. Protect your hair by covering it with a satin bonnet or a silk scarf when going to bed. If you don't like wearing anything on your head while sleeping, you can try using satin or silk pillowcase.
