Strong Healthy Hair

strong healthy hair tips

Having strong healthy hair is all about adding a few simple steps to your current haircare routine. My hair has been at it’s healthiest since I started using a weekly hair mask, like the Aviva Hair Rescue Keratin Renewal Mask. I also started to take a hair growth supplement for strong healthy hair from Aviva. These two steps, along with good haircare practices, has helped my hair become stronger and shinier than even. Even with large amount of heat styling and coloring, I am seeing less fallout and breakage. I also discuss the topic of female hair loss. I Hope today’s video and blog post inspire you to take care of your hair and help you update your haircare routine for strong sexy hair and open the topic of female hair loss. strong healthy hair tips

Aviva hair rescue keratin renewal mask is a great weekly treatment to restore and repair your hair. Either from UV damager or heat damage, the Keratin treatment adds hydration without weighing down my hair. You will noticeably feel and see a difference after using this mask. I personally like to use it once a week after a clarifying shampoo. If you would like to purchase any Aviva products, I have a discount code.

The next addition to my haircare routine is taking a supplement. I was skeptical at first, but now I am on my second box of supplements and I find my hair is thicker and grows faster. The Aviva hair nutrition supplement is all natural and provides 18 essential nutrients for healthy hair. With any supplements, please read the ingredients and check with your doctor if it is safe for you to take.

Female hair loss is a problem that I feel we do not talk about. My mom started to experience thinning hair and hair loss in my early teens. My confident beautiful mom became self concise over it. When my good friend Kristina experienced major hair breakage from over bleaching her her this year, I also watched her confidence shatter. While these two experiences are completely different, my eyes were open to how much hair means to us, especially as women.

My last semester of college, I was working at a hair salon and was offered extensions to be inserted by one of the stylists. I loved the way my hair was finally mermaid hair, full and long. When I couldn’t afford to keep up with them, I had them taken out. After professionally removing the exertions, I went home to wash my hair. As I was washing my hair, handfuls of my hair fell out. I was shocked and scared. So much hair was coming out, I panicked and started crying in the shower. My hair was think, short, and broken. My confidence took a hit. It was the first time I had a taste of what my mom was going through. However, I was lucky that my hair would grow back.

As women we put a value on hair that sometimes we don’t realize until it is gone. Women actually make up forty percent of hair loss suffers. That is almost half! Unfortunately, society does not seem to acknowledge female hair loss openly and most women suffer in silence and feel alone. I am not saying my tips or these products will prevent hair loss, but I wanted to bring up the subject in this hair post. We should take care of our skin, hair, and bodies because it is the only one we have. Enjoy it while we have it. I also wanted to bring up the importance of hair as a woman and how we should openly discuss the struggles we face. (statistic from American Hair Loss Association)

My mom is the most beautiful, loving , compassionate woman I know. She is confident and strong, but it pains me to watch her stare at herself and feel self conscious over hair loss. Genetically, I might start to experience hair loss as well. Who knows, but I hope that we can talk about it opening and support each other no matter what happens.

Have you experienced damaged hair? Hair loss? I would love to know your story.

    I have combination/oily and sensitive scalp. But with coloring and highlighting the ends get dry. I’ve had great luck with Aveda’s Scalp Benefits shampoo and conditioner but it seems to have stopped working. I’m need suggestions on what I should be doing i.e. good clarifying shampoo, give the Aveda some time off and use another shampoo and conditioner….but what? Have you tried Christophe Robin’s salt scrub? I would really appreciate your product suggestions.

      Hi There- I have not tried the Christophe Robin’s Salt, but I know Matrix made a sugar scrub recently that I quite enjoy 🙂

    I appreciate that you opened a dialogue about hair loss in women as I agree, it’s not something I hear much about. I’ve inherited my dad’s hair. It used to be full and thick but as he’s aged it’s become noticeably thinner with visible bald spots. I notice a lot more hair fallout in myself so I worry that one day I’ll reach the same point as my dad. I should definitely start taking better care of my hair now. I think the same philosophy of what you’ve said regarding skincare holds true with hair; take preventative steps now rather than trying to fix problems when they appear

      Thank you so much for sharing your story. Sadly so much of our genetics play into our skin, hair, teeth, everything! Fortunately there are steps we can take to do as much as possible to prevent the problem or prolong the inevitable. Now that we know more and understand more. Good luck!

    I loved the video! And I think that hair care is very important! since I became the Balayage in my hair, I took care of him twice, but be consistent. And with hair loss, I have the luck to have a lot of hair, see my parents and they don’t have problems with the fall of it, but happened years ago, when I drops too much weight (more than 22 pounds) fell much hair and I talk with my nutritionist and she gave me vitamins, since then I had no problems with hair loss. Very good post, and you are very lucky to have that strong mother! ?❤️ #snapchatfam
