Four ways to avoid bad hair days

London, Dec 26: Tame your unruly tresses by eating food rich in nutrients, keeping your locks trimmed and well-conditioned.

Shahmalak, hair loss expert on the TV show “Embarrassing Bodies”, suggests how to avoid bad hair days, dailystar.co.uk reports:

* Food such as eggs, fish, bananas and spinach provide your hair with rich nutrients that promote hair growth, strengthen hair cuticles and make your hair lustrous.

* Stress affects your hormones, which results in poor-looking hair.

* The ingredients in conditioners and styling products tend to stick to your hair and do not get washed out during regular shampooing. It can make hair look limp. Find a shampoo that is specifically made to remove the build-up.

* Humidity in the air makes your hair frizzy. Even in the winter season, when the air turns drier, your hair may still look bad. The cold air, combined with dry heat in your home, can remove moisture from your hair. The key is to keep your hair trimmed and well-conditioned with good quality products.
