Daily Must Do’s for Dubai Hair

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are a number of Daily Must Do’s in order to maximise your hair potential for being healthy and looking beautiful.

HYDRATE

Drink approximately 1.5-2 litres of water a day depending on your activity level and climate. Your scalp, just like your skin, can become dehydrated.

 

ADD MILK TO YOUR TEA

Research has shown that drinking black tea can increase the likelihood of anaemia. If you don’t add milk (preferably skim or semi-skim) to your tea, the tannin is free to bind with iron in your body and can therefore reduce your iron stores.

LIMIT YOUR SALT INTAKE

Try not to eat too much salt. This can cause water retention, especially in your scalp.

HEALTHY SNACKING

The energy to form hair cells drops 4 hours after eating a meal.Snack on a complex carbohydrate, such as wholemeal bread, wholemeal crackers, fruit or vegetables, between meals to sustain energy levels to your follicles.

EAT ENOUGH PROTEIN

Your hair is composed primarily of protein, so including adequate amounts in your diet is vital to hair growth. We suggest having at least 120g of a lean animal protein with breakfast and lunch. If you are vegan/vegetarian, more than 120g of plant protein needs to be included with these meals.

 

EAT ADEQUATE IRON

Ferritin (stored iron) levels are extremely important in terms of hair growth. To help promote healthy iron levels, try to eat red meat at least twice a week, especially if you are menstruating.

 

BE WARY OF DAIRY

Dairy products are a great source of Calcium. However, if you are prone to dandruff, excema or psoriasis, dairy can exacerbate or trigger the condition. Try drinking skimmed milk or substituting with soy or almond milk if necessary.

 

Always speak with you doctor before making changes to your diet.
