The New Year is a time for reinvention, and many of us prepare a list of objectives and changes we aim to accomplish in the coming year. Whether you want to make 2020 the year you finally use your gym membership or start a new hobby, don't forget to include taking better care of your hair on your list. Here's how to have the finest hair year ever in 2022...
Take care of your hair.
Healthy hair begins on the inside, so be sure you're getting the correct nutrients to feed your hair. Because hair is formed of protein, it is essential to consume enough protein to keep it from becoming brittle and fragile. Too little iron is connected to hair loss because the nutritional supply to the follicles is interrupted, affecting the hair development cycle and perhaps leading to shedding. Omega-3, an important fatty acid, will also keep your hair looking healthy – our bodies can not generate it, but it is present in cells on the scalp and supplies the oil required to keep the hair moisturized, so consume enough of omega-3 rich meals.
Use less heat.
We've all heard that using too much heat on your hair can cause damage to the hair and scalp, but that doesn't mean you should give up your hairdryer entirely. Too much heat affects the keratin in the hair, making it dry and brittle, therefore use the lowest temperature setting on your styling equipment at all times. Use a heat protectant spray before using straighteners or curling irons to slow down heat conduction and prevent damage. Never use straighteners or curling irons on damp hair. Give your hair a vacation from heat whenever possible — let it dry naturally as much as possible, and consider adopting non-heat style options.
Change up your look.
Do you wear your hair in the same tight-pulled manner every day? You may be at risk of getting traction alopecia, a condition in which hair falls out as a result of being pulled repeatedly in the same place. If detected early, it is reversible and curable; however, more severe cases may necessitate a medication such as minoxidil (Regaine) to stimulate hair growth, or a hair transplant if the follicle is severely damaged. Wear your hair down as much as possible, or if it must be tied up, knot it in a looser way and modify where it is fastened on the head.
Seek medical attention.
If you've been experiencing hair loss, make it your New Year's resolve to take action. Speak with a medical practitioner to determine the root reason and, as a result, the best therapy. There are several hair loss treatments available, ranging from shampoos and lotions to laser therapy and hair transplants, so don't put it off any longer - schedule a consultation with our specialists and take the first step toward recovering your hair.
