Whether you are starting a New Year’s Resolution or just declaring today as a day to make a change, now is the perfect time to resolve to have healthy hair for the year. Take a look at three resolutions you should make to have healthy hair from the inside out.
Did you know, “alterations in sleeping patterns have been shown to affect the body’s immune function, hormone secretion, and physical and mental stamina? According to the Belgravia Centre, the hair is very sensitive to changes in the body, and hair loss is nearly always the consequence of an internal disturbance.” Yes! Lack of sleep can, could and does affect hair growth negatively. So make sure you have quality sleep each night. I am currently tracking my sleep with the MisFit activity tracker, which I love and highly recommend. If you don’t have one there are multiple apps, which help track your sleep at night.
DRINK CLEAN WATER
Water is essential to hair growth but also your overall well-being. If you are having a hard time drinking water, add fruits to mix it up. Still, can’t drink enough? Did you know you can eat your water? Fruits and vegetables like cucumbers, berries, and celeries are high in water content. Juicing is a great option to quench your thirst and increase your water intake. Make sure you check out my YouTube Video as I test the ph and teach about the importance of water.
TAKE DAILY VITAMINS
Everything we do to our body affect it in some way. Stress, working out, even medications can affect circulation and the absorption of nutrients from foods. Since I am not a doctor, I can’t prescribe a cocktail for each person. It’s a general rule of thumb to have vitamin supplements to ensure we are getting everything we need for optimal health. If you are wondering where to start, I follow Sprouts Essential 4 Supplements as a great foundation for knowing what to take each day. Here are the top 4 essential vitamins for both healthy hair and body.
- Omegas (Fish, flax, chia etc)
- Super Foods aka Green supplement
- Optional: Vitamin D during the winter time or if low.
