Hair Care: Essential Tips for Gorgeous Hair


Having a day when your hair just won’t cooperate can drastically impact how we feel about ourselves. Achieving that ‘good hair day’ feeling is something we all strive for, indicating that taking care of our hair is not just about vanity—it’s about self-confidence.

Strategies for Stimulating Healthy Hair Growth:

  • Balanced Diet Equals Perfect Hair Health: Your diet significantly affects your hair health. Consuming foods rich in proteins, vitamins C and E, and omega-3 fatty acids nourishes your hair from the inside out.
  • Trim Your Hair Regularly: Regular trims are vital to prevent split ends and maintain healthy hair growth. Aim for a trim every 8-12 weeks.
  • Lukewarm Water for Gorgeous Hair: Hot showers can strip hair of its natural oils. Opt for lukewarm water to retain moisture and protect your hair’s vitality.
  • Lower Stress for Beautiful Hair: Stress has tangible effects on hair health, potentially leading to hair loss. Finding stress-reducing activities can help preserve hair health.
  • Customize Your Hair Care Routine: Understand your hair type and tailor your hair care practices accordingly. What works for one hair type may not work for another.
  • Avoid Overhandling Your Hair: Constantly touching or styling your hair can lead to damage. Try to minimize the frequency of these actions to keep your hair healthy.
  • Pause on Hair Treatments: While it’s tempting to frequently wash, color, or style your hair, giving it a break from treatments can prevent damage and maintain its health.
  • Select Appropriate Hair Products: The right hair care products make a difference. Choose those that cater to your hair’s specific needs, particularly if your hair is colored or treated.
  • Sun Protection is Key: Protecting your hair from the sun is as important as protecting your skin. Wear hats and use hair products with UV protection.
  • Nourish Your Hair: Consider treatments like hair nourishment IVs for an extra boost. These can be especially beneficial for addressing specific issues like thinning or brittleness.

  • Eat a Balanced Diet for a Perfect Hair Health
    • Saxenda® is an injectable prescription medicine that, when used with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity, may help adults with obesity or overweight (excess weight) who also have weight-related medical problems

      Initially approved for the treatment of diabetes, Saxenda contains the medication Liraglutide, a synthetic version of a glucagon-like peptide-1 hormone that works by slowing stomach emptying, increasing satiety, and reducing hunger.

      It is delivered by once daily injections.

      Weight loss from this medication was reported during trials:

      • 63% lost at least 5% of body weight
      • 33% lost at least 10% body weight
      • 15% lost at least 15% of body weight

      And 80% of participants kept the weight off at one year.

  • Add Regular Trims to Your Hair Routine
    • This once weekly injectable medication contains, Semaglutide, a synthetic version of a glucagon-like peptide-1 hormone that affects appetite and hunger. In trials, 75% of patients lost over 10% of their body weight.

      Like all GLP-1 analogues, it works by slowing stomach emptying, increasing satiety, and reducing hunger.

      What’s the difference between Saxenda and Ozempic:

      • Ozempic is a once weekly injection, rather than once a day.
      • Ozempic has been shown to be mire effective in longer term weight management.
      • At the moment, Ozempic is prescribed off-label for weight loss, as it is not licenced for weight-loss (only management of diabetes)

  • Turn the Temperature Down for Gorgeous Hair
    • Wegovy is the exciting new injectable weight loss drug, specifically targeting medical weight loss; it is a synthetic version of a glucagon-like peptide-1 hormone that affects appetite and hunger.

      Wegovy is an FDA approved preparation of Semaglutide, licenced specifically for weight loss, which at present is not licenced in the UK. Approval is expected at some point in late 2022 or early 2023.

      The starting dose for Wegovy, will likely be higher than Ozempic.

      Like all GLP-1 analogues, it works by slowing stomach emptying, increasing satiety, and reducing hunger.

      During clinical trials to evaluate the safety of Wegovy when used for treating obesity, participants without diabetes who were prescribed Wegovy lost on average, 12.4% of their initial body weight when compared to a placebo.

  • Dial Down the Stress Levels for Beautiful Hairs
    • Stress can seriously affect your hair and scalp’s health and, in some extreme cases, can cause hair loss.

      If you feel stressed, perhaps try some meditation and give yourself time to sit silently and pay attention to your thoughts. As you spend time practising mindfulness, you may find yourself feeling less stressed, calmer, and more patient.

  • Tailor Your Hair Care Routine
    • It might sound silly, but getting to know your hair better can do miracles. Your hair is unique, and your hair type and texture will tell you a lot about what your hair needs. For example, if your hair is on the oily side, you may need to shampoo every day, while dry hair may need to be shampooed less frequently.

  • Stop Touching Your Hair
    • We can all be guilty of fiddling and fussing over our locks a little too much from time to time. Constantly pulling and tugging on your follicles can not only slowly damage and traumatise your hair, it can also make it greasy quite quickly.

      Picking at your split ends isn’t good either – it’s best to leave your hair alone and let a hairdresser fix your split ends. Avoid styling your hair in tight ponytails and overusing hair extensions that put pressure on your follicles and can lead to breakage and irreversible damage.

  • Give Your Hair a Rest from Hair Treatments
    • It can be tempting to wash and style your hair every day, layering up the products and treatments. But this intensive over-maintenance can damage your hair. Whenever possible, try and allow your hair to air dry. If you’re heading to a meeting and waltzing in with dripping locks isn’t appropriate, try drying your hair on a lower setting to prevent heat damage.

      Always remember to treat your hair gently when it’s wet — it’s three times more vulnerable to damage and breakage.

  • Choose the Right Hair Products
    • The shampoo you’re using could be drastically affecting the health of your hair. Before you choose shampoo, it’s essential to know what shampoo does and how that relates to your hair and scalp type. Shampoo is meant to clean your hair and scalp of dirt, oil, and styling products.

      So before choosing a shampoo, it is compulsory to know your hair. If you’re unsure of what hair products to choose for your specific needs, your hairdresser will be able to point you in the right direction.

      Certain hair products are better for different seasons. Your products should be moisturising and hydrating in the winter, but you can probably switch to something lighter that won’t weigh hair down in the heat and humidity in the summer.

      Adjusting your hair product choices based on your hair’s needs will provide great results in the long run by improving your scalp health.

  • Protect Your Hair with Hats
    • Though we rarely get to see it, living here in the UK, like your skin, the sun can damage your hair and dry it out. Wearing a hat can protect your scalp from burning and your hair from dehydrating.

  • Avoid Hair Damage Products
    • Harsh shampoo, hair treatments, styling products, and excessive brushing contribute to poor hair health. However, according to Healthline, other culprits of hair damage can include:

      • Overconsumption of alcohol
      • Low-calorie and crash diets
      • Decreased thyroid hormone
      • Excessive stress
      • Blood thinners
      • Some prescription drugs for heart problems, depression, high blood pressure, and arthritis
  • Treat Your Hair with Nourishment
    • One healthy hair habit both dermatologists and hair stylists agree on is incorporating a dose of TLC into your hair care routine. This could be a weekly deep conditioner or moisturising hair mask, or a hair nourishment IV; a powerful IV nutritional supplement formulated to assist those with brittle nails and hair issues including hair loss, brittleness and thinning.

      Our Hair Nourishment IV contains a high-dose lysine infusion, which is an amino acid that is essential for gorgeous hair and stimulates hair growth. The IV also contains Biotin, a B vitamin often recommended for hair health.
