Have you ever looked at your hair and thought "what in the world did i do wrong?" You just don't know what's wrong so you buy all sorts of hair products and it gets worse? Well I have a couple tips from what you should do to your hair to what you shouldn't even think about doing. First of all your hair doesn't only depend on what you put in your hair but what you put in your body. For example eating salmon, beans, eggs, and milk helps your hair grow healthy and gives it a natural shine after
6 months if you keep on eating these foods. You should also drink a lot of water to stay hydrated. Studies have shown that massaging your scalp helps blood flow through your head which makes your hair grow longer.
You also need to take care of the outside of your hair. Make sure to stay away from heat! Straighteners, curlers, blow dryers etc. These will cause split ends and your hair to dry out. Make sure that if you do use these products to deep condition your hair a lot but not too much. Certain hair products are supposed to be really good for your hair follicles and helps rebuild them. Another important product you should stay away from is hair dye and bleaching your hair. These will completely dry out your hair and cause it to break.

Try to use natural hair products as much as you can. For example putting coconut olive oil is one. However the best one is the natural oil that comes from your scalp. It's all natural but everyone produces it at a different pace. For most people this oil produces within 2-3 days of not washing your hair. So you should limit the number of times you wash your hair to at least every two days. If you feel uncomfortable or nasty with all the oils in your hair; you can always use dry shampoo to dry it out a little. In order for your hair to look the healthiest you should trim the ends at least…...

...A healthy school nutrition environment encompasses more than food and beverage choices available in the lunch line. It also includes appropriate meal schedules and serving times, dining atmosphere, food/beverage consumption in the classroom, food and beverage fund-raisers, availability of and access to vending machines, behaviors role-modeled by staff, nutrition education at school, physical activity, and generally the messages about eating and physical activity that students receive at school. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), in collaboration with many national nutrition and school organizations, identified six components of a healthy school nutrition environment. Each one is important and affects the nutrition and physical activity in a child’s school life. Healthy eating and physical activity are essential for students to achieve their full academic and physical potential, mental growth, and lifelong health and well-being. Schools influence students’ eating and physical activity patterns. In a school committed to a healthy nutrition environment, every member of the education team makes nutrition and physical activity top priorities every day. The hectic lifestyle of most families in the United States relies heavily on fast foods and leaves little time for regular physical activity. Such lifestyles have significantly affected the health of our nation’s children. Many students arrive at school with empty stomachs, while others sip sodas and munch on high fat foods ...

When going grocery shopping hit the produce side first and keeping your fruit on the counter, which will be a reminder to eat them. When eating a salad, use a little bit of salad dressing. Only use 1 tablespoon. Let the dressing coat not drench the salad. When eating meat choose reduced fat or the leanest cuts. Also make sure you trim all the visible fat and drain the grease.

...Basic Nourishment Mark Leon COM/112 February 25, 2013 Dr. Mary Jean Basic Nourishment Eating healthily is described as a struggle, and people often think they have to give up all their favorite foods in order to be healthy. Visualizing foods as bad or unhealthy is not the goal. It is natural to want unhealthy foods, but by reducing portion sizes the craving for those foods becomes less and less. Moderation is the key in a healthy diet, feeding the body a balance of fats, carbs, proteins, and other essential nourishments in order to function correctly. A sensible diet is primarily about feeling good, having more energy, and maintaining a healthy body, all of which can be accomplished by learning some basic fundamentals of nutrition, improving eating habits, learning how to create and sustain a hearty diet. Eating habits are developed during adolescence, and modifying them can be difficult but not impossible. Begin with small changes in your diet and work up to large one; focus on finding favorite foods and easy recipes that incorporate fresh ingredients. Eating fresh foods taste better and provide more nutrition than packaged or processed foods. As time goes by, continue to add healthier choices to a diet plan. Eating habits can be improved and it is important to think of food as nourishment and fuel. A car does not function with out fuel or the proper lubricants, and neither does the human body. Give yourself sufficient time to chew and enjoy meals, allow your......

Effects of Hair Die on Hair

...The Anatomy and Chemistry of Hair and Hair Dye Many different plant extracts were used for hair dye in Europe and Asia before the start of modern dyes. Indigo, known primarily as a fabric dye, could be combined with henna to make light brown to black shades of hair dye. An extract of the flowers of the chamomile plant was long used to lighten hair. The bark, leaves, or nutshells of many trees were used for hair dyes. Wood from the brazilwood tree yielded brown hair dyes. Another hair dye was derived from a tree similar to the Mulberry tree. Other dyes were produced from walnut leaves or nut husks. Some of these plant-derived dyes were mixed with metals, such as copper and iron, to produce more lasting or richer shades. Outside of the many colors that hair can be dyed, there are many different method used to color hair. Hair dye and the hair coloring process is a matter of chemistry. The first safe commercial hair color was created in 1909 by French chemist Eugene Schuller. He used the chemical Paraphenylenediamine. Hair coloring is the result of a series of chemical reactions between the molecules in hair, pigments, as well as peroxide and ammonia. The choice of which method to use will depend on the desired shade and longevity of the color. Temporary hair dye lasts for between one to three washes. This type of hair coloring involves no chemical reactions within the hair. Pigments are applied to the surface of the hair, without penetrating any further. These are easily......

...key in fighting dry hair. The baggy method is a good way to do this. At night, comb or finger comb through your hair, dividing it into several sections. Apply a moisturizing agent on your hair's ends, working it in with your hands or comb so that they're saturated. Good moisturizers include plain olive oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, shea butter and sweet almond oil. However, if you have a commercial product that works well at keeping your hair soft and supple, use that. You may also want to use a leave-in conditioner first, and apply oil on top of it. After applying your product, place a plastic bag (sandwich size or smaller is suitable) over your ends and secure the bag with a rubber band. Make sure the band is over the bag and not on your hair -- you don't want the elastic tugging at your hair all night. A variation on this is the ponytail method, which you can use if you either don't have time to separate your hair into different sections or just prefer a simpler way to baggy. Pull hair into a loose ponytail and moisturize your ends. Apply a bag to the ends and secure. Cover your hair as you normally would for nighttime protection and remove the bags in the morning. Over the Entire Head Maybe you need an overall moisturizing treatment. The baggy method works for an entire head, too. Comb or finger comb through your hair well. Apply products listed above, but instead of only focusing on the ends, work them through your entire head of hair. Wrap your hair around your......

... Abstract Hair and health have an existing relationship, yet little is known about the relationship between stylist hair care practices and encouragement of self-care in the African American community. The hair cosmetic industry has undergone a revolutionary change over the last two decades, dramatically veering from merely cleaning to repair, increasing the tensile strength, reducing oxidative damage, and stimulating growth. Unfortunately, the psychological and physical consequences of improper hair care by stylists have resulted in “hair stress” in the African American community (Winfield, 2008). The problem under investigation is what are physical and psychological processes of growing healthy African American hair, where people look good on the outside and feel good on the inside. This study utilizes a content analysis approach for using YouTube tutorials to support the “Growing Hands Theory” that encourages proper hair care practices related to physical and mental health for people of African descent. Core Concept Definition Healthy Hair Healthy hair is a result of hair care and self-care. Hair care varies from different hair types because all hair is not the same, but all hair benefits from individuals having appropriate nutrition, hydration, exercise, stress management, and restorative sleep. Strausfogel (2013), focuses on internal and external strategies for better hair growth. Many of these products that......

...Natural VS. Chemical Based Hair Britney Jones COM/170 June 30, 2014 ELSIE WALKER Natural VS. Chemical Based Hair Having natural hair is healthier than having chemical based hair. Natural hair and chemical based hair can both be straightened and curled. Natural hair straightening is a hair styling technique used since the 1890’s which involves the flattening and straitening of the hair in order to give it a smooth, streamlined, and sleek appearance.

But if you want to have more curls you can do different type of hairstyles. Some of the hairstyle are called Bantu knots, straw sets, and rag curls. As for chemical based hair you can do braid out styles and setter waves to get that perfect curl pattern in your hair.
