5 Easy and Cheap Ways to Restore Your Hair For Summer

April 30, 2015 3 min read

No matter how we choose to cut, style, colour our hair, it faces damaging irritants daily. Some are in our hair products, some in the food we eat and more still are found in our environment and through sun exposure. Hair fibers are made up of strong keratins that are known to strengthen follicle cells, these proteins can be broken down over time. Before you spend your money on the expensive treatments and serums you see advertised on television, try these cost effective methods for naturally and safely improving your hair quality.

1. Study labels

Most of us equate lots of bubbles with a deep clean but looks can be misleading. Most shampoos and conditioners contain sulfates that severely dehydrate and irritate the scalp. More than just avoiding sulfates, check your bottles for  that are non-GMO, sulfate-, surfactant- and paraben-free, vegan, eco-friendly, sustainable packaging and cruelty-free.

2. Always use low heat

When drying your hair, always use low heat. High heat can burn strands and dry out hair follicles, causing frizz. Test the heat intensity by blowing the air onto your hand or arm. If you feel a burn on your skin, your heat is too high. You want to dry, not fry, your hair.

3. Stay hydrated

Drinking plenty of water is important for all of your body functions. This will help you maintain internal hydration while massaging your scalp with consumable, essential oils is a quick way to boost the scalps ability to retain moisture and to avoid dandruff. Some of the oils you can use are coconut oil, avocado oil, and rosemary oil. You can find most of these at your local grocery store, market or health food store and have a marvelous shelf life with no expiration date or preservatives.

4. Consider a detox

A structured nutrient cleanse can not only aid in body purification but can have a positive effect on natural hair restoration. Homemade detoxification applications are ideal for replenishing our hair and eliminating residues or harsh chemicals. Try lemon water (equal parts lemon juices and water) or tomato juice with (equal parts tomato liquid and water). The naturally occurring acids in these liquids break down accumulated buildup from hair products. A quick rinse once a week or every other week is all you need.

5. Be aware of nutrition

You can fortify the strength of your hair follicles with the food you eat. Here are the best options: 1. Walnuts are rich in biotin and vitamin E, which help protect our cells from sun damage. Walnuts also contain copper, a mineral utilized for hair color maintenance. 2. Salmon contains a significant amount of omega-3 fatty acids, which the body requires to grow hair and sustain hydration. 3. Sweet potatoes are high in beta-carotene, which the body turns into vitamin A. Vitamin A helps the body produce natural oils to sustain moisture in the scalp and to prevent itching and dandruff. 4. Berries are loaded with antioxidants, which promote a variety of restorative properties. 5. Specifically, blueberries contain the most vitamin C, which supports the circulation within blood vessels that directly feed hair follicles. 6. Aronia berries are completely packed with polyphenols, which increase circulation and help reduce irritation. Also, almonds contain large amounts of magnesium, a mineral vital for hair strength and sustained growth. So, while you're working on your beach body, best get to work on your beach hair. What are you waiting for?
