GROWING LONG HEALTHY HAIR

What is healthy hair? Hair that is vibrant and strong from inside out.  In the hair industry the focus is to achieve a blending of healthy and beautiful hair.  It is not enough to have just a beautiful head of hair.  Lots of clients come to you and say they want the most glamorous hair and to look like Beyonce or Tyra Banks. They do not consider the health of their hair in these instances but as a hair braider /hairdresser, your role is to advise them on what is best.   Here at World of Braiding, our attention is first on the health of your hair.  Glamour comes with all our styles but we will give you glamorous hair on a healthy head of your natural hair.  Adding all the chemicals in the world does not give you healthy hair and also wearing natural hair without care does not also conclude healthy hair.  There is now a growing new trend where we will see the inclusion of vitamins in wellness drinks, natural additives etc to help us gain natural ingredients that we lack in our food. Our industry is developing personal care products that will connect cosmetics and therapeutic pharmaceuticals.  There are now products that go beyond topical beauty which stimulate hair growth, strengthen tresses, enhance styling and improve skin quality. You can gain healthy hair and skin naturally by eating the right foods. In our fast paced world, achieving this is a challenge as fast foods, junk foods, alcohol, sugar and salt all add to excessive weight gain and diseases. Our body needs to be nurtured. Eating healthy balanced meals are the most important way to maintain a healthy body and eventually a healthy hair.
