HAIR

 

TEN-SECOND TEST

Pull out a strand of hair.  Drop it into a bowl of water and notice if the strand sinks or floats.

 

 

WHAT IT MEANS

Damage to the hair’s cuticle layer makes the strands more porous, which allows the hair to absorb water and therefore sink. Sinking strands are a sign of damage probably caused by heat styling, chemical processing, and other environmental factors.

 

 

WHAT TO DO

Let your hair air dry as often as you can to decrease the time spent under the heat of the blow dryer.  Be conscientous of the amount of straightening and curling you put your hair through.  Moisturizing products and treatments can also help resuscitate hair by helping seal the gaps in the cuticle layer.

 

Keep your hair strong and healthy with good nutrition!  Protein, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin b7 called biotin, iron, vitamins A, C, and E, zinc, and selenium.
