Maintaining a healthy head of hair is no easy feat. When it comes to haircare, it's truly a holistic process. Factoring in cleansing and hydrating, styling, diet, scalp care, and stress levels (among other health measures), there's a lot that goes into nurturing luscious locks.
Whilst we're trying to keep up with all the present hair trends, amongst the heat styling and colouring involved, our hair often bears the brunt of damage. But, when it comes to minimising damage, there are a few measures one can put in place! From simple changes like changing your hair washing frequency to limiting heat styling, Emma Li from Australian health science company, EZZ shares her top hair health tips.
Stop over washing
While we're often told to limit washing our hair everyday, one may wonder why exactly.
"Overwashing could be stripping the healthy oils from your hair, leaving you with hair that is dry and more prone to breakage," Li says.
"It is best to allow your hair to breathe between washes, so you should avoid washing it every day. If your hair is very oily, try using a dry shampoo to absorb the oil and give you a freshly washed feeling, while keeping your hair damage free."
EZZ Hair Mask
Hydrating your hair is key to maintaining healthy locks, and a hair mask is a great way to do just that. EZZ Hair Mask is designed to nourish and strengthen your hair with natural ingredients like argan oil, keratin, and collagen. Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes and rinse thoroughly to reveal soft, shiny hair.
Focus on the scalp
As we know, scalp health is a key determinate in overall hair health.
"One of the easiest ways to create a healthier and nourished scalp is by using a scalp scrub to lift away dead skin cells while unclogging pores. EZZ Hair Scalp Scrub contains organic oils to increase hair manageability and prevent knots and tangles, and caffeine powder to give your hair that rejuvenated feeling. Follow your scalp scrub with a nourishing hair mask or conditioner, and be sure to use only as directed, as over scrubbing can lead to damage," Li says.
EZZ Hair Growth Spray
If you're looking for a topical supplement to add to your hair routine, consider EZZ Hair Growth Spray. This spray is designed to promote hair growth and strengthen hair follicles with natural ingredients like biotin, keratin, and argan oil. Simply spray onto your scalp and massage in for fuller, thicker hair.
"Drinking enough water also helps energise and strengthen your hair from the root to tip. Adding more H2O to your diet will prevent split ends and a brittle hair texture, as well as aiding a healthier scalp to stop dryness, itchiness and dandruff in their tracks. Just as water hydrates and replenishes the skin, it does wonders for the scalp and hair," Lee says.
Additionally, "incorporating high protein dietary choices such as lean meat and poultry can increase vitamin intake and help promote healthy and strong hair from the inside out."
