Tips for Hair Growth

Who doesn’t want long, luxurious hair? The question I get asked most often by my clients is how they can grow their hair faster. This is tricky because, while it does have to do with your hair grooming methods, what matters most is lifestyle choices and habits. Below are my top three tips for fast hair growth. Eat healthy: A diet filled with Omega-3 fatty acids is essential for aiding the growth of your hair as well as your overall health. Omega-3 fatty acids nourish your hair follicles for stronger and shinier hair. The proper amount of Omega-3 fatty acids will get rid of flaky hair, provide moisture for dry hair, and is even beneficial in preventing hair loss. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in salmon, nuts, chia seeds, and flax seeds. Quit smoking: If there was ever a vice that destroyed the hair smoking is most definitely it! If you talk to anyone who has ever quit smoking they will tell you that among the benefits they received, healthier hair was one of the most noticeable. Smoking constricts your blood vessels, restricting oxygen flow into your scalp, your hair ends up seriously in need of the nutrition that it’s not getting; the result of this is dry, brittle hair. There are also studies showing that smoking is connected to premature graying and hair loss. Take Viviscal: I swear by this product and have taken it myself as well as recommended it to many of my clients. Viviscal is a vitamin supplement that provides the hair with nourishment from within to help it grow. It does this by providing your hair with the nutrients it needs to prolong the anagen (hair growth) phase of your hair growth cycle. If you have been looking to take supplement definitely give Viviscal a try. Have a specific question about how to promote hair growth?

3 Foods for Healthy Hair

3 Foods for Healthy Hair

I am a hair colorist in Beverly Hills, one of the most health-centric cities in the world, so I am  no stranger to endless  conversations about which foods  are best for vitality, energy, well-being, and a gorgeous body. In my  years of hair colorist training and experience as a Wella educator, I  have learned that the most  important component in hair  color results is a healthy canvas. You will be happy to hear that healthy hair isn’t all great genes and good luck, you can nourish your way to healthy hair by eating the right foods. Here is a list of some of my favorite foods that are packed with the right nutrients for buoyant, shining, healthy hair: 1. Salmon: Salmon is a powerful source of B vitamins which are essential for healthy hair. It is also a potent source of protein, omega 3, and omega 6 fatty acids. A diet high in these nutrients will help your hair grow and keep it from becoming brittle. If you are a vegetarian/vegan chia seeds are a great alternative because of their similar nutritional composition; Simply sprinkle some in your water and let it sit for 10 minutes or more before drinking. 2. Avocado: Avocado is full of all B vitamins (except B12), omega 3, and omega 6 fatty acids. The oil in avocado has near miraculous benefits for attaining healthy hair. It helps add shine and luster, prevents hair loss, and promotes hair growth. This healthy fat works wonders by revitalizing dull hair and giving it life. I like to think of avocado as the adult version of ice cream because it is delicious and easy to enjoy. My favorite way of incorporating avocado into my diet is by squeezing some lemon juice onto a few slices. If you don’t share my love for this delicious fruit, don’t despair, using it as a topical treatment will also help you in your pursuit of healthy hair. 3. Walnuts: Walnuts are nutritionally charged and contain insignificant amounts of sodium (which is rare for nuts). They are a potent source of B vitamins (sensing a theme here?) and vitamin E. Walnuts nourish the hair follicles and strengthen hair at its root and are powerful source of biotin, which is basically a hair colorists miracle component for healthy hair. Add walnuts to your diet by snacking on a handful a day or blending some up in your morning smoothie. Renee Taglia is located in a Beverly Hills California.
