  1. Pay attention to your eating habits.

First thing is to take care of your diet. Everything starts from the inside, what we eat and drink. It is very important for us to increase our protein intake by consuming meat, fish, nuts, whole grains, and beans. Gals and the city’s Nutritionist advise that vitamin A, C, E, omega-3 fatty acids, and minerals like iron will help your hair grow faster and faster. Of course, you will also see great results on your skin.

  1. Take supplements for an extra boost

If it is not possible for you to take all the above necessary vitamins in your daily routine, take them as an oral dietary supplement. Cysteine not only helps your hair but also your nails and skin.

  1. Avoid styling tools

The more you use them, the worse the situation gets. When you use heat-styling tools, such as curling irons, flat irons, or blow dryers, they strip your hair of its natural oils and proteins by breaking down its hydrogen bonds. But if it is inevitable to use heat, apply a heat protectant before the use or decrease the temperature to reduce the risk of damaging your hair.

  1. Use almond oil

Apply oil on your hair before sleep. Especially, almond oil offers healing effects and it is also good for skin, nails, and eyelashes.

  1. Brush your hair before sleep

Sometimes it seems impossible to brush your hair at night before going to bed, but remember that a few strokes make your hair healthier by increasing circulation.

  1. Brush wet hair smoothly

Remember that it’s very easy to damage your wet hair so apply some oil on your hair (not almond oil – just a simple oil/lotion to disentangle them and brush smoothly). Plus use a good comb not to damage your strands further, preventing hair loss and split ends at the same time.

  1. Avoid any type of hair scrub

It is not necessary to put your scalp under the modern methods of cleanness like hair scrub, as you risk losing your hair.

  1. Wash with cool water

Prefer a cool rinse instead of a hot one, even in winter as it is not only good and relieving for your hair but also for your skin. It helps them strengthen.

  1. Cut your hair frequently

Trim your hair as frequently as you can to let them get stronger and healthier.

  1. Time for a silk pillowcase

You may have never thought about it, but you’ll be less likely to wake up with tangles, frizzy hair, or bedhead when you use a silk pillowcase. Instead, a cotton one can muss your hair up into a nest of tangles overnight.

  1. Do not dye your hair frequently

Avoid chemical treatments as much as you can, or if you want a color change, try not to make them very often as long as your hair doesn’t need them. Oxygen destroys hair in the process of making them darker to lighter blonde.
