Top three tips for healthy hair growth
With the weather showing no signs of improvement, all the rain, cold, wind and snow can certainly begin to take its toll on our hair.
Not only does dry hair look unkempt and feel pretty unmanageable, it can also prohibit hair growth.
Indeed, frazzled hair rife with split ends is less likely to grow and turn into long healthy locks.
In order to avoid dry, damaged and frizzy winter hair, there are certain things that you can do, which in turn encourages healthy hair growth and fill tresses.
Hair isn't all about what you put on it, it's about what you put inside yourself too.
"Just like every other part of your body, the cells and processes that support strong, vibrant hair depend on a balanced diet," says New York nutritionist Lisa Drayer, MA, RD, author of The Beauty Diet.
According to Ms Drayer, the more nutrients and vitamins you put in your body - the better for your hair.
She has warned that the effects of a poor lifestyle may only take their toll on your hair a few months later, so don't think that you've got away with it.
To ensure healthy hair and hair growth, Ms Drayer recommends trying foods rich in protein. Because the hair is made of protein, it is important that foods such as meat, dairy, beans and pulses are incorporated into your diet, to keep hair strong and also longer.
As with everything else in the body, the more water you have, the healthier your hair will be.
Medical professionals advise having around three litres of water a day to stay in tip-top condition.
Because the hair shaft is comprised of one quarter water, it is important that you take on enough water to keep hydrated and grow healthy hair.
Jojoba, Argan and Lavender Oil have been used for hundreds of years to stimulate the hair follicles to grow faster, as well as giving them a thorough nourish.
Rubbing hair oils into the ends of your hair will also help to keep them hydrated, removing signs of damage and winter dryness.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
