Studies prove that there is a link between hair and confidence. At Lusid we want to help you be the best version of yourself by helping you have happy hair.
Switching to Lusid products for a healthy hair and scalp routine alone can do wonders for self confidence, however there are many lifestyle factors that could be adversely impacting your hair happiness.
You can give your hair a natural boost by staying hydrated, eating well, sleeping well and looking after your mental and physical health.
Below are a few simple lifestyle changes that could help you get healthy hair naturally.
Try these foods
Fish like salmon, mackerel, and herring, which are fattier are great sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for hair growth.
Eggs are a great meat-free source of protein and also have vitamins D, A and B12. Vitamin D stimulates hair follicles. All cells need Vitamin A for growth, including your hair. B12 promotes healthy hair growth by assisting in the production of oxygen-rich red blood cells, which feed hair follicles. If you are looking for a vegan source of B12, try nutritional yeast.
Berries are rich in Vitamin C which the body uses to produce Collagen to stop hair from breaking or becoming brittle. Vitamin C also helps the body to absorb iron.
Avocados have natural fats and oils to help keep your hair hydrated. They also contain Biotin- a key ingredient ingredient in hair growth supplements. The potassium and magnesium will help hair look shiny and smooth and decrease breakages.
Eat your protein
Hair is primarily made up of protein so it is therefore important to include at least 45g of protein daily. It's common knowledge that Meat is a great source of protein and red meat, in particular, is rich in iron, which aids hair growth. If you're looking for a Vegan protein option then make sure to include some beans and lentils in your diet.
And if you're looking for iron, then go for the dark leafy greens- spinach, broccoli and kale.
Don't go overboard on the alcohol
Don’t go overboard with the alcohol consumption as alcohol dehydrates your hair leaving it dry and brittle. Water makes up a quarter of each strand of hair so ensure you stay hydrated to keep your hair in great condition.
Get adequate sleep
Get adequate sleep to keep your stress down. Stress diverts blood and nutrients away from hair follicles to your vital organs, leaving you at risk of hair and melanin loss. Loss of melanin will turn your hair grey.
Exercise for endorphins to help keep a balanced lifestyle. Exercising increases blood flow and circulation throughout the body. A healthy body will be able to spend more time and resources on your hair. The World Health Organisation recommends that adults between 18 and 64 should aim for 150 to 300 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise weekly or at least 75 to 150 minutes of vigorous exercise weekly for general health.
Look after your scalp
Look after your scalp, not just your hair. If your scalp is oily or flaky wash it more frequently with shampoo. Shampoo your scalp but condition your mid-lengths and hair ends.
Brush your hair
Brush your hair to allow natural oils to distribute from your scalp down your hair shaft. It also stimulates blow flow and transport of oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles.
