Herbal Ed Coordinator: Cristi Nunziata gives us some useful hair tips. Which did you know of?

  • Hair is made up of protein (95-97% protein and 3% water), so be sure you are getting enough of it. Other hair essentials include: biotin (eggs, organ meats, dried fruit, molasses), iron, iodine, B12, and Omega 3s.
  • Teas for hair health include: alfalfa   , burdock root, ho shou wu, horsetail, nettle, and oat straw.
  • Seaweeds are said to keep hair healthy and dark.
  • Rinsing hair with cold water will flatten hair and make it better able to reflect light.
  • Scalp massage can prevent hair loss, stimulate sebaceous glands, and increase circulation. Add a few drops of rosemary essential oil to fingertips.
  • Brushing hair distributes hair oils. Natural bristles are best because they absorb and distribute the oils and trap dirt and dust.
  • Minimize blow dryers, hot rollers, curling irons, and chlorinated swimming pools. If you use a blow dryer hold it at least 6 inches away from the hair and use a low setting.
  • Ditch stress, which can cause hair loss and lackluster hair. Try yoga, meditation, massage, or a cup of calming tea.
  • Get your hair trimmed every eight weeks to remove frizzy, split, or frayed ends.
  • Wear a hat to protect your hair from sunlight, which can be drying or color-altering especially for color treated hair).
