No matter how much time you spend in a salon or how good you are at creating some of the biggest hair trends on your own at home, there are still some things you can do to jack your hair up. The problem is there are too many people who fall for the hype. The hype of believing that good looking hair isn’t about how you treat it so much is how you style it. But the reality is if you’re not taking care of yourself from the inside out and/or you’ve got certain bad habits, your hair is never going to reach its full potential.
But hey, don’t take our word for it. We’ve got some insight straight from the pros about things you may be doing, right at this very moment, that could be doing more damage than good to that pretty lil’ head of yours!
1. Not eating (or drinking) right
There’s a direct connection between people who don’t have enough iron or Vitamin C in their system and also have thin or shedding hair. It’s proof that no matter what kind of shampoo or conditioner you use, your tresses can still be in pretty bad shape if you don’t eat right. No one’s saying you can’t have a hamburger sometimes. But make sure to mix it up with some salad and citrus fruit. Oh, and don’t forget about water. The more moisturized your hair follicles are, the better.
