Natural Hair Health

Natural Hair Health

Natural Beauty is made up of a lot of components. In my opinion, having shiny, healthy hair is definitely one of them.
It makes no difference whether your hair is straight or super curly, hair health can be achieved for all hair types.

Poor nutrition, hormonal changes or imbalance, stress or negative emotions, over exposure to the sun or chemicals, over usage of heating tools such as straighteners or blow dryers, and excessive alcohol or substance abuse can all impair the health of hair.
As a matter of fact, in Asian medicine, your hair is a reflection of your kidney and blood strength!

Hair health has many determining factors. Hair should look shiny and without split ends. Some tips on how to naturally attain healthy hair are:

  • Eat a varied and healthy diet rich with lots of non starchy vegetables and moderate amounts of fruit.
  • Foods for healthy hair include almonds, blackberries, dark green leafy vegetables, celery, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, sea vegetables such as wakame, garlic, onions, raw nuts and seeds, spirulina, avocados, flax-seed oil and more!
  • Drink lots of water every day.
  • Tea that promote hair health are infusions of horsetail, nettle, oatstraw, alfalfa and more!
  • Avoid over processing hair with chemicals or hair color, such as chemical straightening, hair bleaching or too many highlights.
  • Perform a vigorous scalp massage on yourself every day and before or during washing your hair
  • Get regular trims to remove split ends and don’t over-wash your hair. Washing your hair every day can be very drying and damaging. Oily hair can be washed every other day.
  • My personal secret for healthy and shiny hair is to massage a Coconut Oil conditioner into my hair and leave it in for approximately 1/2 hour. Then I shampoo and style as usual. I do this once a month.

Here is a natural recipe for hair conditioner that I found from Herbalist Bridget Mars

Banana Hair Conditioner

1 cup purified hot water (not tap water)
1 very ripe banana
1/4 cup dried chamomile or rosemary
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon honey

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and then apply to your dry hair.
  2. If possible cover your hair with a plastic bag and tie a knot in the bag on your forehead.
  3. Leave it on your hair for up to 30 minutes and then shampoo and style as usual.
