4 Guidelines for Stronger Hair

4 Guidelines for Stronger Hair

Start showing off healthy and shiny hair today with these basic guidelines.

Have you noticed your hair getting weaker? If you’ve seen breakage, split ends and dryness, it’s time to get your hair back on track. Luckily, healthy and shiny hair can be yours with just a few easy steps. Here are four guidelines to get you started.

1. Vitamins
Boost your diet with nutritional supplements. They will provide your hair with the vitamins it needs, like B vitamins, which help strengthen your hair and nails. You can also find these strengthening vitamins in your refrigerator through foods such as liver, oily fish and eggs.

2. Massage
Did you know the roots of your hair are nourished by capillaries that carry oxygen and nutrients? Stimulating the circulation (which slows down with age) will help strengthen the roots of your hair. You can indulge yourself with a scalp massage by a professional, or try it at home! Just tilt your head forward and down, and warm the nape of the neck with the palm of your hand to encourage blood flow to this area. Then massage from the nape upward to improve circulation. Brushing your hair with your head tilted forward and down will also stimulate blood flow.

3. Protection
Heat is the enemy of hair. But now there are many products you can use to protect your hair from styling tools. Try Pantene's heat protectants for both fine hair and normal to thick hair. Also, avoid showering with overly hot water, since it damages the roots. Instead, alternate between warm and cool water — this will stimulate circulation. Finish with a cold-water rinse for extra shine.

4. Moisture
You moisturize your skin, right? Well, your hair also needs moisture. Pantene's Repair & Protect line is formulated to be rich in micro-nutrients, making it ideal for moisturizing normal to thick hair. If you have fine hair, try Pantene’s Aqua Light conditioner, which will moisturize your hair without weighing it down. Try using it before you shampoo. Your hair will absorb the nutrients and be light and bouncy.
