11 ways to get healthy hair
IF you think you know everything there is to know about your hair, think again. Did you know eating chicken can help your hair grow faster and salmon nourishes luscious locks? We’ve consulted the experts for the ultimate guide to keeping your hair in tip-top condition.
Regular hair washing keeps your hair looking clean, but is vital for the health of your scalp too. “A healthy scalp is healthy hair,” explains Carol Johnson, consultant trichologist at the Universal Hair and Scalp Clinic in Dublin. “They co-exist and need each other. If your scalp is blocked with dead skin cells, products and sebum, it cannot respire and this will hinder the natural anagen growth phase of your hair. If your job necessitates an environment that dirties your hair or causes you to become quite hot and sweat into your scalp, wash your hair when you get home,” she adds.
