#NioxinChallenge, Part 1
So you want healthier, fuller hair, eh? It’s why you’re here, isn’t it?!
Well, before we dive into more specifics (don’t worry, they’ll come – be sure to click here to sign up to get the next few tips emailed to you so you don’t miss ‘em), I wanted to share with you two quick and easy tips, both of which pack a big punch!
FIRST: Shampoo your scalp. Condition your hair.
Much like a radiant complexion is dependent on your skincare routine, thick and healthy hair is dependent on a hair care routine!
Here’s the deal: with the vast majority of shampoos/conditioners, you should focus on shampooing your scalp and conditioning your hair. Not the other way around. There is, however, one exception… but you’ll have to read on for that (hint, hint: #NioxinChallenge!).
Shampoo is designed to cleanse our scalps of built up oils, dirt, and dead skin cells. Sure, it should (and will!) wash away any product (hi, dry shampoo!) in your hair too, but it will do that merely by running down though your hair while rinsing. Too many suds and bubbles on your strands, though, and you’re stripping your hair of its much-needed layers of protection. Instead of lathering up the lengths of your hair, focus your shampoo on your scalp, letting the suds cascade through your hair while rinsing. (This will remove follicle-clogging sebum and environmental residues from the scalp and hair without stripping your hair of it’s protective oils!)
Conditioner, on the other hand, is designed for that soon-to-be-gorgeous hair of yours! And when it comes to the vast majority of conditioners on the market, you should avoid applying it directly to your scalp, instead distributing the conditioner throughout your hair , starting about an inch away from your scalp.
But here’s that one exception I was talking about: Nioxin, which is actually designed to promote scalp health (ya know, for the healthier, thicker hair you dream about!). Unlike most other conditioners that actually clog the pores on your scalp and prevent your hair from reaching its potential. Nioxin is designed to condition both your hair and your scalp to better help provide hair resilience and control moisture balance. The combo results in a healthy scalp and stronger hair!
Now that you have your technique down, find the best products for your hair with NIOXIN’s online consultation tool for custom recommendations on the best System Kit for you (which includes a shampoo, conditioner and scalp treatment)! And – get this! – they guarantee you’ll see improvement in just 30 days, so why wouldn’t you take the 30 Day Challenge?!
SECOND: Eat more protein.
Protein is the building block of healthy hair. Without enough of it in your diet, you’re bound to have a head full of disappointment (or at least hair not realizing its full potential!). To ensure your scalp and hair are growing in as quickly, fully, and healthfully as possible, try to eat about half of your body weight (in pounds) in grams of protein per day.
