Tips for healthy hair growth< back
A natural decline in collagen levels within the body as you age in conjunction with general wear-and-tear on your hair contributes to dry, brittle locks that can prove hard to grow.
Achieve your best hair ever with our top tips to help promote healthy growth from the inside out.
Be mindful of product ingredients
Eliminate sulfates – Found in many commercial shampoos, sulfates are compounds derived from sulfuric acid shown to strip away vital natural oils that keep your hair healthy and strong.
Consider going organic – Chemical-free products utilise the natural synergy offered by numerous plant extracts to nourish and protect your hair. Along with organic shampoo consider ditching the harsh chemicals found in regular hair colours that can be harmful to your hair and scalp. Organic hair colours derived from natural vegetable and plant extracts will give your hair the nutrition it needs, without the adverse reactions caused by harsh chemicals.
Address hair health from within
It is important to remember that the condition of your hair (and skin) can be a good indication of your inner health, so it’s vital to address the body as a whole to improve hair and skin for the long term. A well considered combination of topical hair care products in conjunction with a premium supplement can be the key to seeing real change in the health and growth of your hair.
Scientific studies show that including ProPlenish marine collagen in your daily diet can significantly strengthen hair at the root by restoring collagen in the hair follicle to aid hair growth, texture and body. It’s also shown to increase the thickness of hair diameter by up to 49% in some cases, with more pulling force required to break the thickened hair.
Pamper your scalp
Massaging your scalp is a great way to stimulate hair growth by opening up blood vessels to increase flow, and boost circulation to the hair follicles. It is also shown to assist with the strength of the hair roots. Use a nourishing oil to improve the condition of the scalp, hair root, and hair shaft to reduce the chances of hair strands becoming brittle, split, and broken.
Feed your hair
Hair is built primarily of the protein keratin, so it’s important to increase your intake of protein rich foods such as lean poultry, fish, almonds and soy. Include a daily dose of ProPlenish marine collagen in your diet, which has been shown to support and increase the body’s hair building proteins, assisting with longer and thicker hair.
