Holistic Hair Tips For Naturally Healthier Hair

Our hair isn’t just a way to express our sense of style - it’s also an extension of who we are. (And when you think of it that way, it’s no longer so surprising that a bad hair day can bring down our whole mood.) Try these holistic hair tips to nurture your hair and keep it healthy.

Use a comb made of crystals

Andi Scarbrough, a stylist focused on honoring clients’ spiritual needs and adding ceremony into their beauty routines, often uses signature CrystalCombs to infuse intentions into clients’ hair. The combs are carved out of gems to raise the vibration of your beauty routine. A rose quartz comb can open you to love and light, an amethyst comb can tap into your intuition, or a clear quartz comb can foster clarity - and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. No matter what your spiritual goals might be, there’s a gem that can help you and your hair get there, whether it’s infused in a comb, a crystal water bottle, or even on a pendant around your neck.

Create a hair ritual

This is one of our favorite holistic hair tips, because it provides an extra element of soul healing to your beauty routine. Instead of haphazardly rushing through getting ready, create your very own spiritual ritual for taking care of your hair. Your ritual can contain whatever vibration raising activities you want, like intentions, affirmations, or essential oil scents. (Scarbrough, for example, likes to incorporate reiki rituals into her clients’ primping.) What matters is that the ritual treats your hair with love and care, and involves soothing steps that you can look forward to.

Less is more

When it comes to products, try to avoid formulas that involve an overload of complicated ingredients. Instead of reaching for hair products containing sulphates and parabens, keep things as simple as possible. You can even go all the way natural with ingredients like coconut oil, aloe vera, and even certain types of tea that can provide care for your locks in a more holistic way. It’s also a good idea to ease up on excessive heat styling. We all love a blow-dry or flat iron look from time to time, but aim to air dry your hair when you can in order to your locks a bit of a break.

Massage your scalp

As a touchstone of Ayurvedic practices for centuries, a head massage can make a big difference in the health of your hair. About once a week, massage your head in circular motions with warm oil, focusing on relaxation. Along with promoting healthier hair, these massages can help soothe headaches, promote better sleep, and help relieve stress. (And hey, it also just feels dang amazing.)

Load up on nutrients

Your hair thrives (and so does the rest of your body) when you’re getting plenty of zinc, iron, protein, vitamin A, and vitamin C. Foods like cabbage, lentils, avocados, oranges, and apples can help make this happen.

Your hair is a part of you, so treat it with love! Raise your vibration and kiss those bad hair days goodbye.
