I must admit, having thick, fabulous hair in the summer heat can be quite a challenge! Especially with the super warm weather we’ve been having lately. Today I’ll be sharing some of the ways in which you can ensure great hair days and avoid flat, lifeless hair, all year round.
1. Take a look at your diet
Your body needs the right nutrients in order to produce thick, healthy hair so it’s important to take a look at your diet if you’ve noticed that your hair has become thinner or more brittle lately. Essential fatty acids are especially important when it comes to your hair, and it’s also important to ensure you are including the right amount of Vitamin D, Zinc, and Iron in your diet. Fish, eggs, leafy greens such as spinach, as well as nuts and seeds are all different foods that can promote healthy hair growth.
2. Consider a hair transplant
Hair transplants are worth considering if you have suffered from hair loss or thinning hair, and can really help boost your confidence. It’s important to get the treatment done at a reputable clinic, such as the Harley Street Hair Clinic who specialise in FUE hair transplants procedures. The procedures at the clinic are performed by highly trained and experienced doctors, and the FUE procedure involves extracting hair follicles from a ‘donor area’, such as the back of the neck, and transferring this to the scalp. The recovery time for this is short and the risk of any complications is low.
3. Use the right products
The products you use on your hair can have a big impact on its texture and thickness. Avoid hair care products that contain ingredients such as Sodium Laurel and Laureth Sulfates. These are cleaning agents found in many shampoos that can weaken your hair as it strips it from its natural oils. It is also recommended to avoid washing your hair everyday as this can wash away the hair’s natural oils that protect the hair. Instead, use a dry shampoo between washes to prolong the number of days you can go without washing your hair. Apart from keeping your hair looking fresh, dry shampoo is also great for making your hair look more thick and giving it volume.
4. Treat your hair with care
Ultimately, treating your hair with the tender loving care it deserves – being gentle with it when its wet, using a wide toothed comb instead of a brush and reducing the use of heating products – will help your hair grow thicker and healthier and is one of the best ways of having fabulous looking hair, all year round!
