Hair is much more than to make you look fabulous, or to procure compliments from a gazing world. Hair follicles are surrounded by nerves, fat, and blood vessels. These follicles repair your skin, they interact closely with the skins immune system and protects it from pathogens.
The hair on your head keeps your head warm, helps heat your body, and provides a cushion for your scalp. Therefore, taking proper care and maintenance is critical, and you can't put just any hair care product on and expect proper hair growth.
In fact, some products designed to help your hair can actually end up stunting healthy growth and could be the root cause of hair damage. Because your hair is so important for your health, the use of natural hair products are equally important.
Benefits Of Using Natural Products
Natural Hair Care Products Contain Antioxidants. Vitamin C and E, are powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants help the body eliminate free radicals. A lot of chemicals are constantly released into the hair. These chemicals have harmful effects on our skin and hair, they destroy one cell, then move to the next one.
Experts say the best treatments for damaged hair are made with proteins like keratin. A protein hair treatment is good because hair is made up of proteins, so it will strengthen and restore your hair.
Amazingly, Pearl powder contains powerful antioxidant properties. Pearl powder also contains an incredible protein called conchiolin which promotes healthy collagen production and has similar effects to keratin, thus strengthens hair fibers and promotes hair growth.
Natural ingredients can gently yet effectively help impart vitamins, minerals, oils, and botanical extracts into your scalp and hair follicles. They can also gently stimulate the growth of new hair, help hair retain its natural moisture, and enhance the overall texture and appearance of your hair.
Natural conditioners help replace the all important growth proteins in your hair shafts. They also help seal the hair cuticles to prevent damage and give it free reign to grow as much as possible without breakage.
Natural products are essential. They revitalizes hair growth and keep it beautiful.
Your Hair Needs Nutrients
Your hair needs healthy fats because its outer layer is composed of lipids, and your scalp needs oils for hair to stay hydrated. Omega-3 fatty acids will help your hair shine and promote the production of your scalp's natural oils.
Your hair also needs water to avoid split ends and breakage. However, if your hair is already damaged, you need products that contain biotin (Vitamin B7 found in oysters), keratin, protein, iron, zinc, and other vitamins to keep the follicle strong; if the follicle isn't strong, there's no point in trying to retain moisture.
So, how do we give our hair the nutrients it needs without posing a risk to our health. Ultimately, you want to include as many of the vitamins and minerals listed above in your diet. This way, your hair can continue to grow and be structurally sound.
Wash And Condition Your Hair Properly
One of the most important things you can do for a healthy scalp, happy follicles, and strong hair is to wash your hair properly. Yes, this is so simply, yet so important. Additionally, using the proper ingredients removes product build up, frees follicles from dirt, and let's your scalp breath.
Tips On How To Wash Your Hair Properly
1. Gently brush your scalp with a nylon and boar bristle brush to stimulate blood flow and remove dirt.
2. Thoroughly wet your hair with warm water. This opens the hair cuticle and makes the shampoo or conditioner spread more evenly throughout your hair.
3. Condition your hair. You need to give yourself a deep conditioning hair treatment. Our at home hair treatments are designed to strengthen hair follicles, nourish the roots and revitalize the scalp that leads to natural hair rebirth. They help to normalize oil secretions, increases cell metabolism and stimulates blood circulation.
4. Show your scalp some love. Slowly massage the conditioner into your scalp using your fingertips for a few minuets. This increases the blood flow to the hair follicles and strengthens the roots, and conditions your scalp.
5. Shampoo your hair. Mix your shampoo - typically 2 full teaspoons - with water first. This gets the lather started to more evenly coat the hair and scalp.
Start shampooing at your roots and work outward. Avoid scratching your scalp - this can cause abrasions - and beware that wet hair is fragile.
6. The second wash. Shampooing your hair twice will make it stronger, shiner, and healthier. The first wash will remove dirt and residue caught up in the hair. The second wash will help your locks benefit from the nourishing properties of the natural ingredients in the shampoo.
7. Rinse with cool water. This closes the cuticle and soothes the scalp.
8. Pat towel dry, don't rub, then let hair air dry.
So there you go. Take care of your hair and your skin and body will be healthier, too.
