7 Secrets to Healthy Hair
There are many components to having healthy hair, just like any other type of self-care. Whether you are struggling with hair loss, breakage, or any other damaging qualities, with the right products and a good amount of TLC, you can achieve your hair goals. Here are our top 7 secrets to healthy hair.
Choosing the Right Shampoo
Choosing the right shampoo is very important. You need to make sure you choose one with natural ingredients that are going to cleanse the hair and scalp, while also targeting your hair’s needs. If you need help deciding which Zenagen shampoo is for you, read this article.
Conditioner is just as important as shampoo, especially with Zenagen shampoo treatments. Not only do our conditioners help with activating a healthy scalp that allows for optimal hair growth, but they are also full of aloe leaf juices that are packed with anti-inflammatory properties that promote much needed hydration.
Take Supplements and Eat a Healthy Diet
There are supplements and specific vitamin-rich foods that can encourage hair growth and healthy hair. These include biotin, vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin B12.
Shield from the sun
UV rays are incredibly damaging to the hair and scalp. They cause discoloration, split ends, dry strands, and even thinning and hair loss. When you are outside, cover your locks with hats or shade, and try to use an SPF (even in winter). We recommend this one from Actiiv that is created specifically for your hair and scalp.
Don’t neglect the scalp
Healthy hair begins with a healthy scalp. Our products are created with the intention to not only promote healthy hair, but a healthy scalp. One recommendation we have is to use a scalp massager. A scalp massager stimulates hair growth by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles, while loosening dead skin and dandruff. It also effectively cleanses the scalp of product buildup, allowing for thicker hair growth.
Use a quality brush
Believe it or not, your brush matters. Boar bristle brushes for instance, stimulate blood flow and promote hair growth. They also lift away dust and debris while distributing your hair’s natural oils throughout the length of your hair.
Avoid heat when possible (use a heat protectant)
High heat levels are so damaging to your hair! It’s important to avoid heat when possible. Consider letting your hair air dry a few times per week and accentuating its natural texture. But, when you do use heat, be sure to always use a pre-heat styling protectant. Zenagen’s Strengthening Leave-in Conditioner doubles as a heat protectant, while also enhancing shine and strength with structure-building technology.
