Why is it Important to Take Care of Your Hair?
Hair loss can really impact a women’s confidence, which in turn can affect their mental health. Hair loss and hair thinning issues are much more of a widespread problem than many women realize, affecting people of all ages. Hair thinning and hair loss can be caused by many different factors including stress, genetics, hormonal changes, and harmful hair care products.
Harmful ingredients are found in many hair care products sold in supermarkets globally. However, there has recently been greater recognition of the importance of hair health and the avoidance of such harmful substances in hair care routines. Often chemicals such as parabens and sulfates are found in shampoos. These prevent hair growth; cause hair loss; and cause brittle hair resulting in breakage and hair thinning.
Diethanolamine (DEA) and Triethanolamine (TEA) are irritants commonly found in shampoo, which have the effect of destroying the hair’s Keratin. Keratin is the most prominent protein making up each strand of hair and is vital in maintaining healthy hair. Therefore, destroying Keratin causes hair to become brittle and to break more easily, which no one wants.
These are all things we want to avoid when looking for thick and healthy hair, which is why it is so important to pay attention to the ingredients in your hair products. If you see any sulfate, paraben, DEA, or TEA in the ingredients in your products, get rid of them!
Other Things that Might be Damaging Your Hair
Heat damage is often caused by the overuse of styling tools such as straighteners and curlers. The use of these tools can cause dry, brittle hair which leads to breakage and split ends. This is because the excessive heat on your hair disrupts the hair’s protective barrier and damages the protein structures within the hair.
Here are a few things you can do to reduce heat damage:
- Decrease the number of times per week you use heated styling tools.
- Always use a heat protector product before using heat on your hair.
- Embrace your natural hair!
- Try out a heat-free styling technique. There are more and more tutorials for heat-free curls and other styles being posted on social media. All it takes is a quick Google or YouTube search!
- Let your hair dry fully before you start using curlers or straighteners.
Avoiding Regular Haircuts
Many women don’t get regular haircuts whilst trying to grow their hair, because why would you cut it when you’re trying to grow it – right? Unfortunately not. Not getting haircuts might actually be having the opposite effect by damaging your hair, causing more breakage and more hair loss. Split ends are naturally occurring but if we do nothing about them, they can cause further damage to the hair. Split ends can move up the hair cuticle if they are not cut off, which can cause strands of hair to break off closer to the scalp, causing hair loss and hair thinning.
It is recommended to have your hair cut approximately every eight weeks, but this depends on your hair type.
With increasing numbers of ‘fad diets’ being plastered across social media many people have been diminishing their intake of certain important nutrients for both their bodies and their hair. A fad diet is a diet that is trending for a relatively short period. Often, they are quite restrictive and are not based on much scientific or nutritional research. Eating a balanced diet and ensuring you are consuming the nutrients that help to promote the growth and strength of your natural hair make a huge difference! These nutrients include vitamins, iron, zinc, and essential amino acids.
We all know it can be hard to keep track and make sure you’re including these in your diet. But luckily supplements such as the KeraHealth Nutraceutical supplements have been produced as a one-stop intake of hair loss preventing and hair growth stimulating ingredients!
How Can Hair Care Products Help?
You might have been doing some of these harmful things without even realizing but don’t worry, an effective hair care routine can help you achieve the strong and healthy hair you desire!
Hair products can contain amazing ingredients which can help:
- Restore and repair previously damaged hair.

- Strengthen hair to prevent future breakage.
What should you Include in Your Daily Hair Care Routine?
Your hair care routine should include:
- Cleansing your hair and scalp using shampoo.
- Nourishing the hair using conditioner.
- Stimulating the scalp and its absorption of products using a scalp massager.
- Supplements are also a great addition to any hair care routine to make sure you’re getting all the nutrients your hair needs!
Shampoo and Conditioner
Shampoo and conditioner are important steps in cleansing and nourishing your hair. It is important to choose products that actually provide these results; products that repair damage rather than cause it.
KeraHealth is a brand you can trust as their products only contain clean ingredients and they have been formulated to improve all aspects of hair health. The KeraHealth Follicle Hero Shampoo gently cleanses your hair whilst the Follicle Hero Conditioner provides nourishment. These products have been clinically proven to reduce hair loss, increase volume and brightness and reinforce the protein content of your hair. They have been formulated using the exclusive ingredient KerCysteine® which hydrates and strengthens the hair and stimulates the scalp. The KeraHealth products are also suitable for all hair types!
Stimulating the scalp is a great way to increase the scalp and hair roots’ absorption of your shampoo and conditioner, to make sure you’re really reaping all their benefits! It also feels great and is really calming, which is a bonus!
Scalp massaging increases the blood and volume of oxygen that reaches your hair follicles. This increased micro-circulation is great at helping you grow out your hair and can even support lymphatic drainage! The massaging also helps to remove dead skin cells and build-up from styling products from the scalp, which is especially helpful for people who have dandruff.
The KeraHealth Scalp Energiser is a great option as it is made of soft silicon teeth and is hypo-allergenic. This means it will not damage your scalp or cause irritation.
