GROWING 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. A physically beautiful head of hair without health leads to a lot of problems – hair loss and hair damage. This is a problem lots of clients are dealing with today – they want the most glamorous hair to look like Beyonce or Tyra Banks, Cheryl Cole, Jennifer Aniston etc. They do not consider the health of their hair in these instances but as a natural hair designer /hairdresser, your role is to advise them on what is best. This is because we take years to closely guide and guard a client’s hair to healthy growth.
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. Although there is now a growing trend in the industry where we 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.
On the other hand however, you can gain healthy hair and skin naturally by eating the right foods. This we know is nearly impossible in our fast paced world, where the challenge in achieving health with fast foods, junk foods, alcohol, drugs, sugar and salt etc all add to no health, excessive weight gain and lots of 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.
Here at World of Braiding, we are happy to help and this is why we have put together this little piece of information to guide you.
Whole foods, fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables, sufficient protein, water to hydrate the body etc.
