Ensuring your hair stays healthy is about far more than just the products you use. Your lifestyle and fitness habits can have a significant impact on the condition and strength of your hair too. Here are some fitness habits we should all take up in order to keep our hair in top condition.
Take Regular Exercise - Exercising regularly is the best way to maintain a healthy heart and good circulation, which can help improve the scalp’s blood flow. This in turn aids in delivering essential nutrients to your hair follicles to keep hair strong and healthy, whilst promoting new growth.
Eat a Balanced Diet - Hair needs vitamins and minerals in order to grow strong and healthy. Lack of essential minerals can cause conditions which lead to hair loss. Ensure your diet includes plenty of natural sources of iron, such as red meat, eggs and leafy green vegetables, as well as plenty of protein and fresh fruit and vegetables.
Get Some Shut-eye – Lack of sleep can lead to elevated stress levels, which could cause thinning hair or hair loss. Aim for between six to nine hours a night to ensure you feel your best.
Reduce your stress levels - Everyday stress is as much a factor as significant life events, and reducing your stress levels can help to protect you against hair loss conditions. Unwind with relaxation techniques or try gentle, regular exercise which is proven to help reduce stress levels.
