Although your genetic background has a lot of influence on your hair, there are other factors that influence this. Think about your diet, the weather or the extent to which you wash your hair. In this article, we’ll give you tips for healthier, fuller-looking hair.
First of all, it is important to eat enough protein. Your hair consists mainly of protein. Good sources of protein are for example meat and fish, beans, nuts and eggs. If you eat too little protein, your hair may feel brittle and thin.
Also consider what your own hair looks like. For some people it is necessary to wash their hair daily, to prevent a greasy look. Others need to wash it less often, especially when the hair is dry. Consider your own hair type when choosing a shampoo or deciding how often to wash your hair.
Also, be careful with your hair when washing it. Don’t use too much shampoo and don’t wash your hair more than once a day. Furthermore, make sure the water is not too hot or too cold. Your hair is three times more fragile when it’s wet, so be careful. Don’t completely dry your hair with a towel, as this can make it more easily breakable and dull.
Finally, make sure you let your hair dry naturally, if possible. If you don’t have any obligations for the rest of the evening, or if you have a day off, use it to let your hair settle down. Also, go to the hairdresser regularly, so that your hair stays healthy and doesn’t fall out easily. It is recommended to go to the hairdresser every 10 to 12 weeks, on average. More often is not a problem, but make sure you don’t handle your hair too harshly in the days after you’ve been to the hairdresser.
