Updated Healthy Hair Habits for Lush Locks

Posted By Raw Sugar on February 16, 2024

They say hair is your crowning glory, and it's true; it's often one of the first things people notice about you. Picture a bad hair day – frizzy, lackluster, or flat hair – and you'll understand the impact it can have on your confidence. Hair health isn't just about aesthetics; it can also be a reflection of our overall well-being. From scalp issues to loss of volume, hair problems can be psychologically devastating. 
Hair health is influenced by a multitude of factors, including genetics, diet, lifestyle, products and environmental factors. While we can't change our genetics, we have significant control over other aspects of our hair health. Factors like stress levels, internal health issues, and how we treat our hair on a regular basis play a crucial role in maintaining healthy locks. Whether it's nourishing our bodies with the right nutrients or adopting the newest hair care practices, every choice we make contributes to the health and vitality of our hair.

The Foundations of Healthy Hair:

Mix of healthy foods, vegetables, meat, and nuts
1. Eat What Your Hair Loves:
You are what you eat, and the same goes for your hair. Incorporate protein-rich foods like salmon, greek yogurt, and lean poultry into your diet. Plant foods high in vitamins and nutrients such as spinach, avocados, seeds, and nuts also play a crucial role in hair health. Additionally, ensure you're getting sufficient zinc and iron to support hair growth and quality.
On the flip side, avoid foods high in sugar, alcohol, and processed, greasy foods, as they can negatively impact hair health.

2. Lifestyle Contributors
  • The Right Hair Care: We’ve taken special care to include the most nourishing ingredients to support your hair and scalp and avoid harsh chemicals and damaging sulfates and parabens that strip hair of essential goodness. 
  • Avoid Smoking: Smoking damages hair follicles and impedes proper blood flow, affecting hair quality and growth.
  • Scalp Care: Just like your face, your scalp needs regular exfoliation, moisturizing, and cleansing to remove buildup and promote healthy hair growth.
  • Stress Reduction: High stress levels can lead to increased cortisol levels, affecting blood flow to the scalp. Find simple ways to reduce stress and get enough sleep.
