Tips for hair regrowth
Tips and tricks to making you hair look thicker and healthier
The team at mHm have done a bit of research and have gathered a few tips and tricks around making your hair look that little bit thicker and healthier. We also bust a few myths along the way
Wash your hair
Yes, washing your hair daily with regular shampoo can help to remove build up of dirt and oils that make your hair look greasy and flat giving it that patchy look.
Myth: regular shampooing doesn’t impact the speed of hair loss
Get your hair looking thicker
Thickening shampoos and conditioners contain ingredients that plump up the hair and make it look fuller. You want to look for something that’s sulfate free and doesn’t strip the hair of necessary nutrients and oils. Most commercially available shampoos sold in supermarkets and chemists contain sulfates that damages hair and can accelerate hair loss. See our hair thickening shampoo and conditioner bundle with 25 essential vitamins and minerals.
Myth: getting a cow to lick your head doesn’t stimulate hair grow.
Styling your hair right
Use the right styling products, heavy waxes and gels can weigh the hair down. You need volume and you need to turn it up loud. Style it right using a thickening mouse or spray. We recommend our Volumising Mousse for excellent lift and weightless volume for all hair types.
Get a good hair cut
For the boys, keep glam rock and long hair in the 80’s. Fine a good stylist (they’re called that for a reason) and get a good cut. A cool, classic crop or unstructured style will help to make your hair look denser and will draw away from your hair and to you other distinguished and debonair features. For the girls, the same applies cropped short hair is the way to go. For longer hair best to keep it up with nice hair tie or hair clips. Try not to have it parted down the middle this only draw attention to the hair loss
Myth: Shorter hair doesn’t make you look bolder
Diet and Hair loss
As kids our mums and Popeye were big on getting us to eat healthy - and now we know why. Food that is rich is iron, zinc, protein, omega-3 and vitamins C and D help to promote healthy hair growth and prevent hair loss, as well as reducing the symptoms of a dry and flaky scalp. Health eating protects hair and keeps it strong. It aids in hydration and produces the oils needed to nourish your scalp. So….out with the TV dinners and in with the fresh, wholesome goodness. Remember the 5 food groups.
Exercise and Hair loss
We all know that exercise is important, but why? Well it increase blood circulation to the blood vessels that supply your hair of the nutrients it needs for growth. Conversely smoking and high fat and cholesterol diets do the opposite and restricts the blood flow carrying the nutrients needed for healthy hair growth. So get running, lower the fat and cholesterol intake and quit the cigarettes….you’ll feel and LOOK better for it.
