Boosting hair health doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s a mix of choosing the right products and prioritizing overall wellness. Focusing on scalp health, reflecting on eating and sleep hygiene, stress management and hair nourishment are only part of the equation. Replenishing lost elastin is the key to glorious hair at any age. And we have just the treatment to stimulate degraded hair follicles and strengthen hair-producing cells while working double duty to support collagen synthesis and build elastin.
NULASTIN® is the only hair enhancement product that supports the body’s ability to anchor the hair follicle “bulb” to the elastin root system, delivering stronger, shinier, fuller looking hair in 16 weeks or less. Here are some daily changes you can make to help fast-track results with this miraculous serum.
1. Focus on scalp health
A healthy scalp is the most important component of healthy hair growth. So how do we restore scalp health for thicker looking, more beautiful hair? Using the right product, like our HAIR Vibrant Scalp Treatment, can help replenish the elastin your scalp loses every day to support healthy hair growth regardless of age, health or gender.
2. Embrace mindful eating
Eating a healthy, balanced diet helps us feel and look our best by ensuring our bodies are getting everything they need to function properly. Diets high in protein, healthy fats, fruits and veggies deliver benefits you can see to the skin and hair. Staying hydrated, taking your multivitamins and keeping alcohol intake to a minimum all do wonders.
3. Supplement key nutrients
In addition to a healthy diet, hair supplements can help tackle thinning from the inside out. Biotin, vitamins C and D, zinc, and iron are powerhouses for overall wellness, but talk to your doctor about the best options to help you meet your goals before incorporating anything new. Remember that vitamins are no substitute for balanced meals, but they can help take hair health to the next level.
4. Schedule regular washes
In recent years, people are washing less often. For most hair types, washing every other day or three times weekly is ideal for scalp health. On wash days, reach for a lightweight shampoo formulated for your hair type and wash twice to eliminate any product buildup. When you condition your hair, avoid the roots and focus on the ends, where your hair needs the most hydration. If your hair runs oilier, you can also alternate with clarifying formulas for balance.
5. Manage daily stress
Stress is a major offender when it comes to causes of premature hair loss. It’s true! And even though it doesn’t seem like go-to techniques would make a difference, every blissful moment helps. Increase daily activity, make sure you’re getting enough sleep, schedule downtime and make time to connect with others, whether that’s your partner, family, friends or a trusted professional. We love the idea of bullet journaling the best moments of your day, evening meditation, and always making room for play and laughter.
6.Rethink potent processes
It’s true that most things are okay in moderation and hair care is no different. With continued use, the heat and chemicals used to lighten, perm or relax curls can lead to damage resulting in hair loss. Drop the frequency of these treatments if you can’t leave them behind altogether and use nourishing products in between. Small changes in your routine can prevent further hair loss, but you want to avoid damaging the hair follicles, which can make regrowth challenging.
7. Take a break from the heat
We say it all the time, but daily heat styling puts stress on your strands and can lead to dryness and breakage. Anytime you reach for your blow dryer or styling iron, remember to start with a heat protectant spray. To cut back on exposure to heat, lean into heatless options that work while you sleep (hello braids and rollers!) or look for ways to stretch your styles longer with hats, scarves, loose updos, and a really good dry shampoo. No one will know the difference.
8. Opt for looser styles
Ultra-tight ponytails, top knots and braids can impact your hair growth for the worse, especially around the edges of your face and the nape of your neck and the same is true for constant hat wear. These styles create a constant pull and lead to hair loss over time (“traction alopecia”) and the best way to avoid it is to be gentle with your hair by minimizing tugging, taking a break from everyday hats, wearing more relaxed styles and not sleeping with your hair tightly pulled back. Silk bonnets, scrunchies and pillowcases help, too.
9. Keep on trimming
If you’re looking to boost length and volume, scheduling regular trims with your stylist may seem counterintuitive, but they’re actually a game-changer. The right haircut addresses split ends and tangling while giving the illusion of fullness and body. We recommend seeing your stylist a minimum of once every three months to keep split ends from spreading – leading to frizz, breakage and visible damage. Ask for blunt cuts with strategic face framing for a timeless look with youthful energy.
10. Avoid environmental damage
Before you jump in for a swim this summer, saturate your hair in the shower. This prevents it from soaking up pool chemicals, salt and lakewater. Give it a good wash after, too, following with a rich, hydrating conditioner. And remember to apply sunscreen to your hairline and part, especially when going hatless.
