Hair is often the first thing we notice when we meet someone. It is an important expression of who we are.
It also serves a valuable biological purpose; keeping your head warm and helping to regulate body temperature.
But since environmental factors can effect our hair over time, it is important to learn healthy ways to protect our crowning glory.
Bad Hair Days
Exposure to the elements can wreak havoc on your hair. In the winter, dryness occurs when the protective outer layer,
known as the cuticles, lifts and allows valuable moisture within the hair shaft to evaporate. Sun exposure can also be harmful,
damaging your hairís natural protective film, making it appear dry, dull and brittle. The sunís ultra violet light chemically breaks
down and weakens the keratin proteins, which are the building blocks of our hair.
Easy Hair Care
A healthy lifestyle means healthier hair. Drinking enough water and getting frequent scalp massages are just some
of the simple ways to keep your hair silky and shiny. But the real secret comes from within, as any nutritional deficiencies
can lead to adverse effects on your hair. Diet profoundly effects the health of not only internal systems and organs,
but external ones as well.
Formula 2 Multivitamin Complex is a great way to obtain the vitamins and minerals needed for healthy hair.
It contains over 20 essential nutrients such as Zinc which builds hair protein and vitamins B and C which
support strong, supple strands of hair. It also includes Iron, which prevents hair follicles from being starved
of oxygen and Beta-Carotene, an essential nutrient for hair growth.
all contain Omega-3 fatty acids necessary for healthier, shinier looking hair.
These essential fatty acids help to condition and lubricate the hair.
Lastly, remember to nourish your hair with a healthy shampoo and conditioner. Herbalifeís

Herbal Aloe Everyday Conditioner
