The word ‘nourish’ literally means to promote the growth of something by caring for it and meeting its needs. When we say we’re going to teach you how to nourish your hair, we don’t simply mean keeping it clean. We mean giving your hair the nutrients and love it needs inside and out to grow full, thick, and shiny. That’s why we’re called Nourish Beaute, after all!
In this two-part blog series, we will go over ways to nourish your hair from the outside as well as from the inside. Keep reading to learn a few ways to treat your hair right from the outside, and join us next time to learn how to get the best hair of your life from the inside, out.
How To Nourish Hair From The Outside
Keep Your Hair Clean: You have probably heard that washing your hair every day is bad for it. This is somewhat true and somewhat false, and truly varies from person to person. Classic shampoo strips the oils from your scalp, making your hair look dull and lifeless. However, it also cleans your scalp which helps to reduce sebum, prevent clogged follicles, and encourage hair growth. The important thing to note if you do wash your hair every day is to make sure you are using a natural, gentle shampoo with healthy oils and natural botanicals - like our organic shampoo for hair loss. Our hair growth shampoos contain Procapil, a natural DHT-blocker derived from biotin that not only nourishes your hair but encourages it to grow.
Use A Hair Growth Conditioner: Conditioning your hair is incredibly important and should be done every time you wash it. Use a natural hair growth conditioner that includes natural healthy-hair ingredients like argan oil, coconut oil, castor oil, and biotin - one of the most essential hair growth vitamins.
Follow The Golden Rule: Treat your hair the way you want to be treated. While the first two tips here are great ways to nourish your hair, what you do to your hair outside of the shower is just as important as what you do to it in the shower. Try the following things to be kind to your hair:
- Don’t towel dry your hair the same way you would towel dry your dog or scrub a stain out of a carper. It’s your hair! Gently squeeze excess water out of your hair and put your blow dryer on a low setting if you can’t air dry your hair.
- Avoid excess heat styling. If you curl or straighten your hair every single day, you might be doing real damage for the sake of beauty. Embrace your natural hair texture for day-to-day life and save the intense styling for special occasions.
- Don’t force out tangles. We’ve all been in a rush before and desperately yanked on our hair to try and alleviate tangles. Take your time and use a wide-toothed comb to gently work out tangles.
- Be wary of tight ponytails and buns. If you always wear your hair in a tight, high pony you might be putting excess stress on your hair follicles and eventually may notice a receding hairline because of it. Change up your style or opt for hair clips instead of elastics.
