Most nourishment starts inside out, and hair vitamins directly affect the health of your hair and nails, too. Vitamin C, vitamin A, biotin, and the mineral iron will all lead to healthy-looking hair.

Also, Omega-3 keeps your hair from thinning out and can make hair look shinier by taking one to three 250 (mg) capsules of borage oil, or flaxseed oil, one to three times a day. However, for similar results without taking a supplement, increase the amount of marine proteins in your diet. This includes salmon, oysters, mackerel, tuna, and sardines.
You might also consider eating more antioxidants which make hair look better, such as walnuts, kidney beans, broccoli, blueberries, and tomatoes.

3- Avoid Washing Your Hair Every Day

Shampoo removes excess oil and dirt from your hair, but it also takes away sebum from your hair, which is a natural oil that makes your hair lively. Instead of using shampoo every day, try skipping shampoo for some days, or using baby shampoo and dry one, as both are mildly cleansing methods without stripping hair completely of its natural oil.

4- Air-Dry Instead of Blow-Dry

Blow-drying your hair makes your hair lose too much moisture. Wrap up your hair in a cotton towel and let it absorb the moisture for a few minutes, then let it air-dry. However, if you needed to blow-dry your hair, keep the dryer at least 6 inches away from your hair shaft for less damage.

5- Take Colder Showers

The hot water causes hair scalding. However, cold water has many benefits, like making your hair grow faster. If you needed to take a hot shower, make sure to rinse your hair with cooler water for a minute to refresh your scalp.

6. Use Essential Oils

Moroccan Argan Oil:

Applying a few drops of argan oil on the ends of your hair gives it a more finished and healthy appearance and prevent breakage.

Coconut Oil:

It is a natural emollient that contributes in hydrating dry, frizzy hair. It fills in the gaps in your tresses in case of any heat damage by heat or the sun, as it penetrates hair fibers.  Try to give your hair a deep-conditioning treatment of warmed coconut oil once every week for best results.

Olive Oil:

It contains fats that can treat, protect, and improve the overall health of your hair. It also smooths every hair strand and improves the overall appearance of your hair.
