You hair exhibits what you eat! That's right. Everything that you put into your body also affects the health and well being of your hair follicles. We all want to have healthy and shining hair. If you think your hair is a bit too dull or frizzy, then it's time you start taking extra care of them. Our hair requires as much pampering and care as our skin. According to experts, exercise and a proper diet are the two key components that can give you the perfect mane. Here's 5 foods you can eat for having a healthy looking hair:
Eggs and Meat
Whole grain foods include breads, flour, rice and cereals. A diet rich in whole grains provides you with high quantity of fiber, zinc, vitamin B1, B2 and B6. Including them in your diet will provide nourishment to the scalp and hair follicles. If you want naturally beautiful and healthy hair, then whole grain food is you answer. These are not only beneficial for hair, but also improve digestion process in the body. A good digestion automatically means healthy body, skin and hair.
Dieticians and dermatologists will also advise you to include eggs and chicken. This is because eggs and meat contains high quantity of proteins and hair is made of proteins. Sufficient intake of proteins encourages healthy hair growth and improves the condition of hair fall. If you are suffering from weak and brittle hair, then probably you are not taking sufficient proteins in your diet. Including protein rich food such as eggs, chicken and turkey can promote healthy hair growth and eliminate the problems like fall and breakage.
We all know the health benefits of having green vegetables. If you really want to have healthy and shining hair, then this is the simplest way to do it. Include as much green leafy vegetable as you can in your diet. Vegetables like Broccoli, Spinach, and Fenugreek are rich in iron, vitamins A and C, and calcium that are vital for hair growth and regeneration. Green vegetables are necessary for sebum production.
If you think your hair is a bit brittle, then you are probably suffering from the deficiency of Biotin. Legumes include beans, soy and lentils. Including them in your diet will provide necessary proteins and vitamins to stimulate the production of keratin. The high content of biotin and minerals like iron and zinc in legumes makes your hair flexible and strong.
Fish is a rich source of omega-3 acids, vitamins D and E. Since ages it has been considered to the best food for hair growth and regeneration. It helps to maintain health of the scalp and ensure lustrous and vigorous hair growth. The health of the scalp is directly related to the health of hair. Including fish in your diet will help you get clean and clear scalp.
Also known as nature’s quick snack, cashews, walnuts and Almonds are considered effective source to prevent hair loss and promote hair growth. Dry fruits are rich in selenium and zinc and prevent unpleasant signs of hair loss and breakage. If you have thin hair and looking for treatments to make them thick and strong, then raw nuts can help you a great deal.

Q: What are Micro links?
A: Micro-Links Fusion hair extensions are individual Human Hair Extensions that gives you a very natural look like your own hair and can be worn with style versatility. The hair attachment process is painless and it requires no braiding, no bonding, no messy glue, and you will have no bulkiness when your extensions are complete. These extensions are attached to small sections of your own natural hair at the root with small rings. It can be washed, colored, and styled like your very own hair.
Q: How long to micro links last?
A: Micro Links can last from 4-6 months depending on how fast the hair grows and how well they’re maintained. As your natural hair grows, the attachment grows further away from your scalp which increases the risk of matting and tangling of the natural hair close to the scalp. To remedy this, every 2 – 2.5 months you should go back to the salon for maintenance, where they will open the ring and simply push it back up to its original position.
Q: How do take care of micro links?
A: When you wash your hair, only wash it in one direction. Avoid any of that crazy hair-scrunching lathering. You’re bound to get badly tangled extensions if you wash your hair like that. Be gentle, because hair shrinks when it’s wet and therefore the micro rings will be a little looser and could slip down. Use leave-in conditioners instead. This decreases the risk of slippage of extensions from the rings. However, use it sparingly as it can cause tangling and build up. Don't sleep with wet extensions. Dry them well, sit under dryer, and tie them up to avoid tangling. When brushing, make sure you are gentle around your roots and rings to prevent slipping. Always use professional hair products that are best for your extensions. Some products can be good to your natural hair but not to your extensions. Products that have too much silicone can cause your extensions to slip. To prevent any slipping or tangling from fault of your own, it is recommended to visit your salon every 2-3 weeks for regular shampoos.
Q: How much does micro links cost to install?
A: The prices vary depending on the stylist. Installation ranges from $350.00-$2,000.00 depending on length, time, style, and hair texture.

This actual part or hairline showing provides a look that the extensions are growing naturally from the scalp. This technique can be installed on chemically treated or natural hair.

It also allows access to your scalp, so you’re still able to shampoo, moisturize, or just scratch as you would with your natural hair.
Q: How long do sew ins last?

Lately i have been correcting hair that has been damaged from keratin treatments. Please do your research before you decide to let someone put this chemical in your hair because it is damaging. I promote healthy hair therefore i do not provide this service in my salon. Here is a great read to inform you on keratin treatments and chemicals to avoid to try and straighten your hair. If you are natural the most natural way to straighten your hair is flat iron it with a silkening which is done with no chemicals.
