Weak Hair What You Can Do to Strengthen Hair?

Is Your Hair the Weak Kind?

Do you have weak hair? Stop envying those with thick, strong hair – you can make your hair a lot better looking with hair care products containing Omega 3 fatty acids.  Often, weak hair can be restored with hair strenthening products thta add moisture and enhances the protein bonds that build the follicle.  Vitamins and supplements can help also by ensuring the proper amino acids and minerals are in your system that promote strength and healthy growth.

Strong Things for Weak Hair

If you have thin, limp, droopy hair, you can use a volumizing shampoo which will help a lot. There are a range of them available on the market, which add body and bounce to weak, lifeless hair that could do with a ‘pick me up’. . .

It’s a good idea to use a scalp stimulating shampoo at least eight times a month that nudges away sebum that may be blocking the hair follicles and preventing thick hair growth. Make sure such a shampoo is a non-irritant, and won’t cause dryness.

There are some organic botanical extracts that can do a lot for weak hair. Herbal wonders such as jojoba and comfrey make removing knots easy (thus preventing damage to the weak hair) and prevent split ends from forming. Things like Amino acids too, are great for weak hair, giving it body and thickness, while keratin makes hair stronger. 

More Good Stuff for Weak hair

There are various ingredients found in a good shampoo that do weak hair a lot of good. So look for these elements in the shampoo you’re planning to buy. For example, hydrolysed rice protein makes hair stronger and creates a full look, as it expands the hair itself to make the whole head of hair look thicker.
Moisturizing emollients such as aloe and avocado get rid of unsightly split ends, while Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E make hair stronger and healthier, as well as making split ends vanish. Soy protein makes hair stronger, too, and makes it less dry and more flexible, with less chances of breakage.

The Natural Way to Strengthen

Ginger hair oil is excellent for new hair growth and it’s easy to make – just squeeze out a quarter teaspoon of juice from some fresh ginger, mix it with sesame oil and apply to your hair. Leave it on for at least fifteen minutes. Peach seed oil is good for hair growth, too.
A mixture of flax seed, quince, agar, gelatine and Irish moss is also very good for adding body to weak hair. Sage and wheat grass are great for weak hair, too, and soy protein is another ingredient of hair care products that restores and strengthens weak, damaged hair.

Causes of Weak Hair

Weak hair can be caused my a number of things like poor diet, hormones or chemical treatments. The hair becomes weak and starts to crack and will eventually fall out. You can remedy this by a slight change in diet, and staying away from harmful hair dyes and perms.  As mentioned, hair is comprised of proteins that are chained together.  These "chains" are called bonds.  Bonds are created by amino acids, vitamins and minerals. 
If...there is a deficiency in these nutrition requirements, or...if the bonds have been broken or damaged by straightening, heat, perms, coloring, relaxing, etc., or...if follicle moisture has been depleted by heat, harsh hair products, sun damage, chlorine, etc....then, the hair will become weak and damaged and prone to breakage, split-ends, frizz, and loss of styling control.
How you strengthen hair is by supplementing your diet with hair vitamins, using a moisture shampoo, use a penetrating moisture conditioner, and periodically applying a deep conditioning moisture treatment.  It is also helpful if you use a thermal hair protectant to help avoiding steaming when using a flat iron or curling iron.
