GOT HEALTHY HAIR??? Drink Milk ...

Milk contains nutrients and vitamins that promote growth and healthy hair, and may slow hair loss. Hair can be cared for internally by drinking milk regularly. Milk contains calcium, protein, vitamin D, vitamin A, vitamin B, and many more. All these vitamins are known to support healthy hair growth. Calcium is important for keratinization, a hair growth process. Calcium absorption into the body produces keratin, keratin is one of the main components of hair, skin and nails. Milk contains vitamin B12 and B6, which help in hair growth. Hair loss indicates there is a vitamin D deficiency.

Healthy Hair Tips


To some of you may sound "Yucky, Icky, Nasty" but the truth is that if you want healthy and silky hair DO NOT wash it daily. If you wash it daily you are depriving your scalp of its essential oils. Your hair becomes brittle and shampoo might dry your scalp. You also want to avoid using too many styling hair products, remember that there are lots of chemicals in products unless you use natural or organic. Your hair reflects your personality but it also reflects your general health, so healthy eating is an important key. The most important thing is to not brush often, even worse if you brush when wet, if you brush vigorously you are hair is more prone to breaking and hard brushing tends to scratch your scalp. Don't forget to keep scheduled appointments with your hairstylist to maintain your hair free of split-ends.

How To Choose A Blow Dryer ...

There's many things you have to consider when choosing a blow dryer. Watts are important, the higher the wattage, the more powerful the heat and air flow will be. A blow dryer with adjustments like a variable speed and heat control is always a good buy. Weight is also important, you don't want your wrist and hands hurting before even able to style your hair. Hair dryers can range from $20.00 to $150.00, but you can surely buy something in between and get a dryer with good features.

This is what I bought a few months ago, Infiniti Professional Tourmaline Ionic Styler Hair Dryer by Conair

It has 1875 watts, ionic technology to reduce frizz and provides manageability. Tourmaline Ceramic technology helps smooth the cuticle layer, creating silky, shiny hair. Has three heat and two speed settings and it also includes a diffuser for curly and wavy styles, and a concentrator for pinpoint styling. Oh, and it has a retractable cord, so, no more tangled cords !!!

I bought mine at Bed, Bath, and Beyond for $34.99+tax.
