Our hair dictates a lot of our over all physical appearance. This is why we never dared to go out without having to comb, brush, or style our hair. This might also be one of the reasons why we often seek the service of experts to have our hair cut and regular hair care, because we want to make sure our hair looks good on us.
Managing and maintaining our hair should not be as simple as it sounds. Of course, we should make sure we grow a healthy and beautiful hair. But growing a healthy and beautiful hair should not be as difficult as it sounds, because there are actually natural hair growth methods that are very easy and affordable.
For instance, you may have heard a million times that eating a well-balanced diet is essential in maintaining a healthy hair growth. Of course, it is! Our whole being, our whole body and every part of us needs a healthy diet in order to function properly. Hair is not an exception. Being composed of natural protein keratin, our hair needs enough protein to be able to enhance its growth. Good sources of protein are beans, yogurt, and cottage cheese.
Aside from a protein-rich diet, hair growth methods that could be practiced daily are sufficient water intake (that is eight to ten glasses at least) and regular exercise. Water helps us to release unnecessary substances in our body including in our hair that most of the time hamper our hair growth. Regular exercise, on the other hand, promotes a normal blood circulation essential to the production of healthier hair.
On an as per needed basis, hair growth methods such as shampooing and brushing the hair should also be considered. Using shampoo to wash the hair does not require a definite schedule for everyone. The rule is: shampoo when there is a need to. Depending on your hair type, one may find a need to shampoo everyday, while another may not. Brushing should be done everyday but not once in while, most especially not one hundred strokes a day just like the myth suggests. Too much brushing would cause friction between the scalp and the brush causing stress to the hair.
Surprised by how easy you could promote healthy hair growth? Indeed, these are just simple hair growth methods. So start practicing them now to achieve the hair you really want to have.
