Healthy Hair Tips

Last week Pink Avenue Models blogged about how to get perfect skin just like the models. Today we want to share some tips on how to get healthy hair to match your perfect skin. Once again healthy hair comes from the things that you eat and what you put into your body. Here is a list of a few foods that every model should eat to keep their hair healthy.

1. Carrots. Carrots are full of Vitamin A which is great for your scalp and vision.

2. Low- Fat Dairy. This is great for your skin and hair, great source of calcium which is necessary for healthy, strong hair. Models are known for carrying snacks in their bags, throw a yogurt,  cup of cottage cheese or string cheese in your bag for a healthy snack.

3.Whole grains. Whole grains are great for a model’s hair and skin because it contains Zinc, Iron and B vitamins. Whole grain snacks are great for boosting a model’s energy on long, busy days.

4.Eggs. Eggs have tons of protein and B-12 vitamins. B-12 vitamins  and biotin are important beauty nutrients.

5. Beans,salmon,chicken and turkey. These foods are all high in protein and mandatory for healthy hair.

Eating these healthy foods will give you the shiny, healthy hair that you have been looking for. But this isn’t all you can do do get model like hair. Here are a few do’s and don’ts when taking car of your hair.

DO get your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks. Hair can grow a little less than an inch every month so get regular trims for a healthy look.

DO try and use an organic and natural shampoo and conditioner. These products should be all natural and without chemicals. Chemicals can damage a model’s hair.

DON”T use hot tools everyday. This can cause a lot of damage to any model’s hair. Try air drying your hair or braiding it to create waves. Blow dryers, curling irons and straightners can cause serious damage.

DO deep conditioner your hair once a week. You can buy a deep conditioning treatment at any store. Models sometimes need to really conditioner their hair after a runway show so they sleep with a deep conditioner in their hair overnight.

DON’T use products that add shine. These products contain silicone which can coat your hair and is hard to get out.

DO try and cover your hair in the summer. Your scalp and hair can get sunburned and can lead to more damage to your hair.

DO use a shampoo that is made for your type of hair.

Summer is almost here and that means minimal styling. Here are a few hair styles that all of our Chicago models will be wearing this season.

Down and wavy. So easy  to do and looks good.

Braided. This is easy to do and can be worn with just about anything.

Messy ponytails. This season the easiest and most comfortable ways to wear your hair will be up. Models will be wearing their hair up, use a cute ponytail holder to dress it up.

Enjoy the summer and look great doing it!
