Happiness is a great hair day. But what if it’s not a great hair day but a great hair life? Sounds like a fairy tale, right? Believe it or not, it’s quite possible if you make a little effort towards a healthier and more mindful lifestyle that harms no part of your body and soul.
To help you get the hair of your dreams, we’ve gathered top habits from the founder of BBA Organic, Asya Grigorian.
The transparent elixir
Guess what? Drink water. It may seem repetitive - we know you have seen this advice a million times when reading about skincare. But the role of water and its adequate daily intake is not exaggerated at all. We all consist mainly of water - on average 60% of a human body is water. So you will never be mistaken if you drink enough H2O.
As for hair, a single hair string has about 10% water in it. This means that only by drinking enough water, you complete almost 10% of the job. Sufficient water intake daily keeps your hair shiny and healthy by preventing split ends and hair damage. Staying hydrated helps to keep your scalp healthy and nourishes your hair from the roots. So keep a glass of water near you when you work or have your bottle with you when you go for a walk. It’s easier to remember to drink water when it’s right in front of your eyes.
Oh yes - we couldn’t skip this point, it’s one of the most important factors. Good hair often means good health, so if you see some changes on your hair, see a doctor and check for vitamin deficiency.
On average, it’s best to check up for vitamin deficiency every six months, so you can always have an up-to-date report on your overall health. Yet, some types of vitamins need different checkup frequency - yearly or every two-three months, for example.
Thus, it’s always better to consult your doctor before taking tests, to avoid money and time waste. And, of course, when you find a deficiency, go for organic certified, non-toxic and vegan options of vitamins if available, otherwise, you’ll never be sure if they help or harm you instead. But don’t sit back and rely on pills only - eat your vitamins daily by choosing high-quality food and keeping a healthy diet as much as possible.
Add collagen after 26
Our Asya says that it’s necessary to take additional collagen from time to time, especially if you are 26 and higher. The thing is, our body naturally produces collagen, but its levels decrease when we age. To make your hair nourished, elastic, shiny, and healthy, keeping collagen on a high level is the best thing you can do. Again, choose high-quality organic certified, and non-toxic options for collagen supplement without harmful additives, whether you pick powder or in pills.
In fact, collagen contains important amino acids, which help your body to build strong and healthy hair. It prevents hair thinning and loss of elastin, which is a key structural protein that decreases with age.
What touches your hair?
Have you ever thought that strong hair doesn’t just come from within? Remember how your face skin reacts when it comes into contact with different things - masks, pillows, your hands, scarves, etc. The same is with hair, but more complicated.
You know, many of us use different accessories for hair - elastics, hair clips, hats, hair scarves, and almost all of them may seem comfortable to use for a quick hairstyle, but the harm they cause to your hair is immense.
Although they can change your appearance in a second and make you look great, we can’t ignore the fact that most of them pull and pluck your hair when removing.
For example, plastic hair clips damage the hair, rubber bands and elastics pull your hair and pluck them, and bobby pins break your hair structure and damage your scalp when their tips come off the edge. Tight hats, headbands, or bandanas put pressure on your hair and head which cause not only hair damage and hair loss but headache as well.
To minimize the damage, don’t use the accessories mentioned or use them very rarely, without extra tightening, heating while they are on your hair, and never use them on wet hair. But it is better to find safer alternatives which are definitely a more sustainable option rather than plastic or resin: we talk about silk or satin. Use bands covered with satin or silk layers, or tie your hair with silk ties - you’ll get a nice hairstyle without much damage to your hair. The weave of satin or silk accessories will never break your hair structure or pull them while removing, so you can keep calm!
One thing more: brushing techniques and the material and structure of your brush leaves a big impact on your hair health. Never pull the brush aggressively when brushing, start from the tips and then go closer to the roots instead of starting from the roots without brushing the tips. Don’t put much pressure on your hair and don’t pluck them. Try to avoid brushes with artificial materials, resin, and metal as it will harm your scalp and roots.
Put your head on my… pillow
When it comes to pillowcases, we all want to choose a clean, non-toxic option which will be the best for our face skin. But what about hair? Being non-toxic is not enough from this point of view. Our Asya says that the best options for healthy hair are non-toxic and clean silk and satin pillowcases. If you want to have shiny and healthy hair and keep its hydration on a high level, choose these materials as they don’t absorb the moisture from your hair.
