Strong roots are the key to a flawless hairstyle. They make your hair look voluminous and keep it intact throughout the day. In an interview with Fashion and You, celebrity hairstylist Viveka Wright stresses the importance of strong roots for a great hairstyle. She says that getting that ‘root’ volume is just as important as creating length and body; it’s the foundation for everything else. If you want to know how to make your hair roots stronger, read on! Strong roots are essential for keeping up with new techniques like double-ended cutting and light extensions. Roots should be dense and healthy to support these techniques without sacrificing volume in your end result. A healthy root structure also ensures that maintaining your hair will be as easy as possible. Here are some tips on how to make your hair roots stronger.
How To Make Your Hair Roots Strong
1. boost your scalp density
The scalp is the root of the hair. It’s where the hair is formed, so it has to be healthy and dense in order to support any style. If your scalp isn’t healthy, you will have thin, weak roots that won’t look great. Healthy scalp density is a crucial part of a strong and healthy root structure. To boost your scalp density, massage it with a mixture of coconut oil and honey for about 20 minutes at least three times a week (this will also help with other health issues).
2. get vitamins that support healthy hair growth
Your hair needs nutrients to grow strong roots. Vitamins A, B, and C will support healthy hair growth and prevent thinning by maintaining the health of your follicles as well as strengthening your roots. Try vitamin supplements like biotin or Biotin-Vitabiotics or take biotin supplements on an empty stomach 30 minutes before each meal while drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated. You can also buy biotin supplements online or at a local health store. The recommended daily dose for adults is 10 micrograms per day, but this can vary depending on the condition being treated and the severity of the deficiency that has been identified by testing blood levels (daily dosage is usually between 2-6 micrograms). If you are pregnant, nursing, or taking medications please consult with your doctor before taking any supplements or vitamins as they may affect these conditions.
3. get enough water
Water is the key to healthy hair growth. Drink water daily and make sure to apply a lotion or oil that is rich in vitamin A, B, and C to your scalp. This will nourish your scalp and provide you with the nutrients you need. Try a moisturizer like a coconut oil, jojoba oil, or shea butter for your scalp. You can also mix it with a little milk or yogurt if you’re not dairy-free (try adding 1/2 cup of milk or yogurt to 2 tablespoons of coconut oil). If you regularly use a shampoo that contains sulfates then consider switching over to one that does not – this will help keep your scalp clean, which is essential for healthy hair growth. It’s also important to remove any chemicals from the environment by using natural cleaning products and avoiding washing your hair every day.
4. don’t shampoo your hair every day
Shampooing too often can strip away natural oils from the scalp and cause dryness, which can lead to thinning hair roots as well as breakage of hair strands (which makes it look thinner). If you do wash your hair every day, try using an organic shampoo with no harsh ingredients like SLS (sodium Laureth sulfate). Alternatively, try washing with baking soda once a week – this will leave your hair feeling soft while keeping it manageable without stripping away the natural oils on the surface of the skin.
5. increase your vitamin c intake
Vitamin C is essential for healthy hair growth, just as it is for the rest of your body. It helps to stimulate collagen production in the body, which keeps your skin and hair looking young and vibrant. In addition, vitamin C acts as an antioxidant that protects the body from free radical damage (which can cause premature aging). To increase your vitamin C intake, try eating more fruits and vegetables that are high in vitamin C (like peppers, broccoli, and sweet potatoes). In addition, add more vitamin C-rich foods to your diet like orange juice and red peppers.
Use A Protein-Based Shampoo And Conditioner
- Protein-based shampoos and conditioners contain proteins that resemble hair keratin, which helps to repair damaged hair. This is a great way to strengthen your roots because it strengthens the layer of the scalp where your hair grows from. If you use a shampoo and conditioner with protein, you’ll have stronger roots in no time!
- Protein-based shampoos and conditioners also add moisture to your hair. This moisture will help your roots retain their volume for long periods of time. You can use it as a moisturizing mask at least once every week or two, or you can use it as a deep conditioning treatment once in a while.
- Protein-based shampoos and conditioners are great for scalp health because they’re gentle on your scalp. They don’t cause dandruff or dry out your hair. This is a great addition to any hair routine, especially if you have fine or thin hair. It will also help you avoid using harsh sulfates in your shampoo and conditioner that can dry out your hair even more.
Get Your Hair Colored Or Highlighted
- If your hair is colored or highlighted, ask your stylist to use root booster products. They are designed to make the roots stronger. Root boosting products will help maintain the integrity of your hair and prevent breakage.
- If you’ve just dyed your hair, use a root booster conditioner and leave it on for at least three hours before rinsing it off. This will help get rid of any excess dye that might have been left in your hair during the process, leaving you with strong and healthy roots.
- If you’re going to get your hair colored, ask your stylist to use a root booster conditioner. The conditioner will help make the roots strong and healthy.
- Use a root booster product on your hair after every color or highlight. This will help prevent breakage and keep your hair healthy.
Don’t Forget To Use A Heat Protection
- Heat protectant spray, or heat blocking mousse, is a must-have for braids and extensions.
- Use a heat-protecting spray to add extra shine to your hair when you’re blow drying it straight or curling it. Spray the ends of your hair with the product before blow drying to help add body and texture.
- Heat protectants also help protect your hair from damage when you’re using hot tools like flat irons and blow dryers. When your hair is exposed to heat, it can lose moisture, protein, and keratin which are essential for healthy hair growth. Using heat protectants will prevent this from happening so you can maintain healthy strands all year round!
- Use a styling cream as a heat protectant on braids or extensions that are left in overnight. This will help lock in moisture so that your hair stays strong all night long!
