SLEEP AND HAIR HEALTH
Sleep is nature's most powerful beauty treatment. Not only does a good night's sleep leave you looking luminous, but also, hair and face products are most effective overnight because they penetrate better when you're at rest. "When you're tired, blood doesn't flow efficiently," says Michael Breus, MD, author of Beauty Sleep. During sleep, our bodies produce growth hormones critical for collagen production. Collagen in turn can increase blood flow to the scalp, promoting healthy hair growth.
Dr. Elena Koleva of the Belgravia Centre, UK's leading hair loss clinic, states that sleep deprivation can affect the body’s ability to repair and regenerate, which can influence hair growth.

EAT YOUR WAY TO HEALTHIER HAIR!
The science behind this cannot be denied. According to Dr. Amy McMichael, Director of the Hair Disorder Clinic at Wake Forest Baptist Health in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, a balanced diet can give your hair all the nutrients it needs to keep it healthy. To a doctor, healthy hair is hair that grows well out of every follicle, is not easily broken, and is connected to a healthy scalp. Healthy hair is bouncy, shiny and manageable.
Protein, Iron, vitamin E, trace minerals, and vitamin D, play a critical role in the production of proteins that make up your hair according to Dr. Christine Gerbstadt, spokesperson for the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. A strand of hair is composed mostly of protein, which means your hair needs protein to grow. Not getting enough iron, can cause hair loss. And vitamins E, D and trace minerals like those found in Himalayan Salt, are essential to keeping your hair in good shape.
So eat well to grow healthier hair! Combined with a healthy lifestyle and proper hair care that is chemical free and natural, you are on your way to bouncier, shinier and more manageable hair.
