Healthy Hair

1. Trim: If you take the time ever couple of months to trim your slit ends it makes your hair, as a whole, more healthy.  It tends to lead to less breakage and overall thicker stronger hair.

2. Eggs mask: These goodies are filled with healthy fats and proteins perfect for all natural hair treatments. If you have hair that is prone to oil, use only the egg whites; hair that is dry should go for the egg yolks. Mix about 1/2 a cup of whichever part of the egg fits your needs and slather it on unwashed, damp hair. Let sit for 20 mins. Rinse your egg head with cool water and clean as per usual.

3. Omega-3s: Salmon! Omegas are the natural oils that keep your scalp and hair hydrated.

4. Sandalwood Oil: To curb flyways, add a few drops of sandalwood with a few drops of olive or jojoba oil, rub the mixture between your palms, then smooth it through the ends of your hair for instant sleekness and a way to instantly condition brittle, flyaway hair. 

5. Wrap it up: Protect against slit ends by gently snuggling your wet hair in a towel. Let the cotton absorb the moisture for a few minutes instead of rubbing. 

6. Get some moisture: Use a humidifier at night in your bedroom, especially in cold weather. Your home heating probably keeps the air very dry, which can dry out your hair.

7. Cold water BLAST: Seal your hair cuticles by blasting them with cold water once you've rinsed the conditioner out - this will give your hair more of a shine. It sounds horrible, but it works!

8. Comb don't brushWhen wet use a comb rather than using a hairbrush to prevent split ends. The wider the teeth on the comb the better.

9. IRON: Animal products such as red meat, chicken and fish provide iron with a high bioavailability, meaning the iron is readily available to the body. Vegetarians can raise their iron stores by including lentils, spinach and other leafy green vegetables such as broccoli, kale and salad greens.

10. What's your secret?
