Offices in Tampa, FL and Beverly Hills, CA.

Whether you have undergone a hair restoration procedure or are simply seeking ways to enhance the vitality of your hair, daily routines play a crucial role in the health and appearance of your hair. Our award-winning plastic surgeon and hair restoration expert, Dr. Demetri offers the following tips and insights into daily routines that can help you achieve and maintain a vibrant head of hair.

Nourishment from Within: A Balanced Diet

The foundation of healthy hair begins with proper nutrition. A well-balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and essential nutrients is vital for promoting hair health. Incorporate foods such as lean proteins, leafy greens, nuts, and fatty fish into your meals to provide your hair with the building blocks it needs. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish like salmon and trout, for instance, can help improve hair texture and reduce inflammation on the scalp.

Hydration Is Key

Just as proper nutrition is essential, staying hydrated is equally important for healthy hair. Dehydration can lead to dry, brittle hair, so ensure you drink an adequate amount of water daily. Hydration not only benefits your hair but also promotes overall wellness.

Gentle Hair Care Practices

Treat your hair with care, especially if you have undergone a hair restoration procedure. Use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner suitable for your hair type. Avoid excessive heat styling, such as using flat irons or curling wands, as it can damage the hair shaft and lead to breakage. When drying your hair, opt for patting it dry with a soft towel instead of vigorous rubbing.

Regular Scalp Massage

Scalp health is an integral part of maintaining healthy hair and minimizing loss. Regularly massaging your scalp can help improve blood circulation, which, in turn, supports hair growth. Use your fingertips to gently massage your scalp for a few minutes each day. You can also incorporate essential oils like lavender or rosemary, known for their hair-boosting properties, into your routine.

Avoid Tight Hairstyles

While sleek updos and tight ponytails or braids may look stylish, they can place stress on the hair follicles and lead to hair breakage. Select hairstyles that allow your hair and scalp to breathe, and if you are wearing hair ties, choose ones without metal clasps or avoid elastic bands altogether.

Protection from the Elements

While vitamin D from sunlight can be beneficial, excessive sun exposure without protection can cause hair to become dry and brittle. Invest in a quality UV-protective hair spray or wear a wide-brimmed hat when spending extended periods outdoors.
