Adopt a Healthy Diet

By following a healthy, balanced eating plan, get hair that is lustrous shiny and resilient, and a mane you have always dreamed of. Healthy hair foods can help you achieve better, stronger, shinier and thicker hair from the inside out.

Eat the correct balance of nutrients and minerals to supply hair with all that it needs to remain shiny, lustrous and strong. Proteins are known to enhance and strengthen hair strands – Greek yoghurt, eggs and cheese are great sources of protein. For healthy hair follicles, opt for foods rich in unsaturated fats such as salmon and avocado,  that are rich in omega3-fatty acid and protein.


Trim Hair to Beat Split Ends In Winter 

 The constant brushing of hair on woollen hats in winter can also cause split ends. For this reason, regular trims are essential. The most effective way to keep your hair healthy is to get rid of those dry ends. Aim to have a trim every six to eight weeks, as this will promote healthy hair and hair growth. To avoid split ends, come to our hair salon for your regular haircut.
