Everyone wants healthy hair that is shiny and full. The only way to have luscious locks is to engage in proper hair care practices that support the health of your strands.

Healthy hair starts from within, that means that you have to be healthy for your hair to be healthy. Hair is composed of three layers, the cuticle (the outer layer of thin shingle like cells), the cortex (made of keratin a strong protein like fiber), and the medulla (the center layer). Since our hair is made of proteins, it shouldn’t be surprising that your protein intake is important to the health of your hair. Moisture is also critical for your hair, which means we must consume enough water too. Having a well-balanced diet provides our hair with the nutrients it needs to flourish. Stress can also compromise the health of your hair, so learning to cope with stress is a must for the sake of your locks. There are several other factors to consider in the care of our hair, one of the key factors is your hair type.
