Irish Independent - Health & Living - - SMALL STEPS -

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.
