Eat all the right foods
It’s true: staying healthy on the inside reflects on the outside, so tank up on foods rich in hair lovin’ nutrients and half the battle is won. Hair is made up of protein after all. In order to enhance growth and strength, consume foods that are packed with iron, zinc and Omega-3 fatty acids, such as lean meat, chicken and fish.
Skip the hot shower
High temperatures can dry out your tresses, flattening hair and leaving you with limp, dull-looking locks. Instead of a hot shower, opt for warm water (or better yet, cool water) instead. It helps to lock in nutrients into each strand more effectively.
