Quick Tips to Help You Make Your Hair Healthier, Fuller, Shinier.

Quick Tips to Help You Make Your Hair Healthier, Fuller, Shinier.

 

Healthy, shiny and fuller hair sounds like a dream to most women, right? Well, Traya is here to give you some quick and effective tips to make your dream come true.

First, It is important to know what causes dull and damaged hair?

Daily pollution and styling products not only give you dry hair but also make them look dull and fragile. Regular heat and humidity open the once-closed hair cuticles that lose moisture making them look dull. Malnourished hairs tend to be weak and fall off easily, resulting in hair thinning. This leads to a reduction of hair volume and your hair appears to be flat and pale.

A good hair care routine combined with a good nutritious diet can help you achieve your desired hair goals in the long run and we can absolutely help you with it. Traya integrates three different sciences to give you a better push towards your hair goals by working on the root causes of hair problems.

Time to reveal all the secrets, here are some quick tips for healthier, fuller and shinier hair :

  • Follow The Right Way Of Hair Wash

Too much hair wash can do more harm than good, giving you dry hair, but once you get in the shower, follow the two-step healthy hair care routine. Wash your hair twice; the first shampoo should work as your cleansing treatment and the second should be followed by a gentle scalp massage to stimulate blood flow in the scalp. This will help in hair rejuvenation and gives you long, healthy hair. Traya offers the best chemical-free mild scalp cleanser shampoo for this.

  • Heavy Conditioners, But Not For Everyone

It is important to understand your hair type and then select the matching hair care products. Thick, creamy conditioners go well for thick and dry hair but if you have fine hair, it can make your hair look greasy, reducing its volume

  • Cover Your Pillow With Silk Or Satin Case

You might have experienced waking up with rough hair. Well, the general pillow fabrics are harsh on hair and cause too much friction against your hair while sleeping, making it look dull and frizzy. Satin or silk-made  pillowcases  are soft and do not cause much friction.

Quick Apple Cider Vinegar Rinses

Science says that hair that looks dull, frizzy, or brittle tends to be more at a higher or an alkaline pH. Use of apple cider vinegar naturally brings down the hair pH hence, improving its luster.

Make Your Scalp Healthy

A general rule says that healthy hair requires a healthy scalp. Dandruff is one of the most common culprits in ruining your scalp health. Every scalp dandruff is different; flaking can range from mild to heavy and thus will require a variety of approaches to treat it. A medicated shampoo rinse 2-3 times a week can help you reduce it. Traya offers one of a-kind Anti-Dandruff shampoo that reduces the occurrence of dandruff overtime . This shampoo contains 2% of clinically tested anti-fungal solution that provides relief from all kinds of dandruff and can treat mild to moderate dandruff very easily.

Scalp Oiling

Apply oil on your scalp and massage gently in a circular motion. This increases blood flow to the scalp and also increases the tensile strength of hair strands, reducing breakage and frizziness.

 

Long, Healthy Hair Requires A Mindful Diet

Your diet has a real impact on your hair, so be cautious of what you eat. A healthy hair routine also includes good food for healthy hair. For example, eating too much sugar can cause your body to produce too much DHT (dihydrotestosterone). DHT can bind to receptors in your hair follicles basically, it clings to them and then causes them to weaken, shrink and eventually die - which makes your hair fall. This process is called “miniaturization”. Traya vitamins for hair growth are made with natural and ayurvedic ingredients to promote fuller, healthier hair with natural DHT blockers like pumpkin seed extract, pygeum, green tea extract, and bhringraj.

Eat The Right Nutrients And The Right Food For Healthy Hair.

Like any other body part, your hair requires a variety of nutrients to keep itself  healthy and growing. Many nutritional deficiencies are linked to hair loss. So optimal nutrient intake should be the key step in your hair care routine.
The next time you set up your hair care routine, keep the below list in mind.

  • B vitamins

One of the most important B vitamins for hair is biotin. Many studies have shown that biotin deficiency can cause hair loss in humans. Biotin along with other B vitamins helps in the production of red blood cells that carries oxygen and nutrients to the scalp, increasing blood supply and eventually hair growth required for fuller hair. 
Vitamin B rich foods include whole grains, nuts and seeds, egg yolks, sea food, mushrooms, dark leafy vegetables, etc.

  • Vitamin A

Vitamin A is essential for hair cells just like the other cells of the body. It helps in locking the moisture in the scalp through the production of an oily substance called sebum, which in turn gives healthy hair. A balanced amount of vitamin A in your diet can do wonders to your hair including stimulating hair growth and therefore it is a complete yes to include vitamin A rich foods in your diet. The sources include all plant foods rich in beta-carotene such as carrots, pumpkin, mango, spinach, kale etc. vitamin A can also be found in animal foods such as egg yolk, cod liver oil, meat etc.

  • Vitamin C and E

This vitamin is one of the most powerful antioxidants with a high degree of radical scavenging activity. It protects your hair from free radicals and the oxidative stress caused by them. These free radicals may cause premature aging and can result in hair thinning. In addition to this, vitamin C also helps in the formation of a very important structural hair protein, collagen as well as facilitates iron absorption.
Sources of vitamin C include all citrus fruits such as orange, lemon etc. Strawberries, guava and peppers too.

Similarly, vitamin E is also a powerful antioxidant that helps protect hair from oxidative stress. It is also used in supplement forms to stimulate hair growth. Dietary sources of vitamin E include sunflower seeds, almonds, spinach, and avocados.

  • Omega 3 To The Rescue

You can get omega-3s from foods, such as oily fish and some plant oils, as well as from supplements. It is classified into three types which includes :
  1. Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)
  2. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
  3. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)

These fatty acids may improve your scalp health by stimulating your hair follicles and sebaceous glands and can help you overcome the problem of dry hair.
Dietary sources include : flax seeds, fish, cottage cheese etc.

  • Zinc 

Zinc plays an important role in hair tissue growth and repair. Studies have reported that hair loss is a common symptom of Zinc deficiency. Zinc supplements are usually prescribed while treating hair loss .Therefore, it is very important to incorporate foods that are rich in it. These include nuts like Brazil nuts, walnuts, cashews, and almonds, fruits and vegetables, oysters etc.

  • Proteins for hair

Well, your hair strands are almost entirely made up of proteins. The recommended dietary intake for protein is 0.8g to 1.0g per kg of body weight. A protein rich diet is crucial for healthy hair growth.
Keratin, a fibrous structural protein along with collagen, makes up your hair strands.

Keratin is also responsible for providing a glossy and fuller look to hair. So, it becomes very important to include it in your hair care routine. Natural foods like eggs, berries, fatty fish, legumes, nuts, shrimps, tofu and cottage cheese are great sources of protein. Protein supplements may also be advised if your dietary intake is insufficient.

  • Iron

It boosts scalp circulation and increases oxygen delivery to the follicles, which results in better and faster hair growth .The best iron sources include clams, oysters, eggs, red meat, spinach, and lentils.

Takeaway

Unfortunately, everyday exposure to chemicals, UV rays, pollution, and heat tools can damage your hair health. This affects your hair texture and shine.

While a spa treatment can make your dry hair look lustrous and fuller for 2-3 days, a proper hair care routine is required for healthy hair. Sometimes, the problem lies internally which may be due to the presence of skin diseases, hormonal imbalances, malnutrition or pitta dosha (Ayurvedic Science). These problems can lead to a variety of hair problems such as hair thinning, itchy scalp, dandruff etc, that is why Traya combines three science which includes Ayurveda, Dermatology and Nutritional sciences to know the root cause of the problem and treat it accordingly so that you get the hair you always desired.
