Thanks to icons like Jena Dewan, the sleek and straight bob/lob is breaking down the doors of traditional Summer trends. Protect your hair from that harsh heat and you'll be able to straighten your hair all Summer long while keeping it looking and feeling healthy.

What to treat it with: If you'll be straightening your hair often this Summer, you'll want to protect it from the harsh tool heat. Before you start straightening, evenly spritz your hair with the Davines Melu Hair Shine to keep hair nourished, strong, and ultra shiny. 

 

Mermaid Braids

The Best Foods for Ultimate Hair Growth

It's no secret that having healthy hair means covering all of your health bases. While you can have the best products or stylist on hand, the key to long term (healthy) hair growth lies within your diet, water intake, and overall health. We've always thought of this as an interesting way to maintain and restore hair growth, as it's not often talked about.  What if you could start your journey to hair growth through food? Well, we're about to show you the best foods for healthy hair growth and you won't want to miss it. Keep scrolling to learn!

Protein

The hair is made up of many vitamins and nutrients. Including certain things into your diet simply enhance or supplement them. One of the major building blocks of your hair is protein which is thankfully, quite easy to implement into your daily diet! For strong and protein-based hair, be sure to regularly eat foods like eggs, Greek yogurt, and poultry (turkey or chicken).

Omegas & Fats

Your body doesn't produce the healthy, unsaturated fats that you need and get from foods like nuts, avocados, flax seeds, and salmon. By including these foods into your diet, you reduce inflammation, ultimately letting things like hair follicles do their thing: providing mega shine and fullness!

Vitamins A, E, & C

Vitamins - we know we need them but making sure we're sufficient in them is easier said than done. By including vitamins A, E, and C into your diet, you up the amount of iron and protein in your body and supply the hair with things like collagen, giving rich body to your hair growth structure. Vitamin rich foods: citrus fruits, spinach, and orange veggies (sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, mango, carrots, and pumpkin). 

Iron

Having strong hair is just as important as having long hair. If your goal is to have long hair, making sure it's strong and sustainable is what gives it a chance for long term health and resistance against constant coloring and/or styling. The best iron-rich foods to work into your diet are dark leafy greens, Legumes, and dark chocolate!

Now that you know the key foods for ultimate hair growth, it's time to start focusing on how and when you'll start implementing them into your diet. One of the ways we love to track our progress is with a hair journal and pictures on our phones. Starting on day one, track what foods you plan to put into your diet and take a "before" photo. Save both of those in your notes app and check back a month or two later, documenting the progress that's been made. We guarantee you'll be surprised with the hair growth progress and with your overall health! Have you ever tried changing your diet to improve overall hair growth?
