Hello. just months ago I didn't think much about the fact that hair needs to stay healthy, too, and you can't treat it however you want. Even though hair is strong, it's also very brittle in a way, and you need to take care of it.
By following these steps, you will not only make sure that your hair stays healthy, but it will also grow faster. This is because you have ensured that it gets all the nutrients and vitamins it needs. Also, these steps will make your whole body a lot healthier.
I first started thinking about my hair health when I decided to grow dreadlocks, or as we say in Finland for some reason, "rastas", and not only did I want my hair to grow faster, but also for it to be stronger to ensure that the dreads are in as good condition as possible, from the very beginning.
I recommend everybody to read these tips, and obey them, because it WILL enhance the quality of your life in many ways. You won't be sick so often, you will be stronger, you'll probably even live noticeably longer!

Step 1: Make sure you eat healthy

This is the most important step, without a doubt. Eat many kinds of foods, including fish, vegetables, meat, fruits, etc.
You should also eat daily multivitamin pills, zinc, magnesium and calsium as well. I don't think it has a direct effect, but Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids are very important for your heart and veins. You get them from greasy fish, or pills. Don't be afraid, there's nothing unhealthy about taking pills as long as you take the recommended dose. Make sure you get enough protein in your diet.
A bit of chips or chocolate every now and then won't hurt, but make sure you keep those as a special treat, and not a daily snack.

Thank you. Great article - very helpful! (:

"rasta" refers to the Rastafarian religion, which is native to Jamaica. One of the signature elements of Rastafarianism is the wearing of ones hair in dreadlocks. Think Bob Marley.
