Maintain Your Hair’s Elasticity In 5 Simple Steps

What is hair elasticity and why is it so important?

You’re probably more likely to associate the words “stretch” and “flexibility” with a yoga class but did you know elasticity can affect your hair in all sorts of ways? The elasticity of your hair is an indication of your hair’s strength and health. The ability to style or manage your hair and how healthy your hair looks all depends on the elasticity of your hair.

Before you begin to tug and pull it, here’s how you can test your hair elasticity:

  1. Wet your hair and take a strand of wet hair and hold it at the mid length or at the roots.
  2. Be gentle with this step, and slightly stretch the strand.
  3. If your hair breaks or doesn’t fall back into its original shape, that means that your hair elasticity is low. If not, your hair is healthy!

If your hair elasticity is low, here are some things you can do to balance it:

Deep Condition Your Hair

Lack of moisture in your hair is one of the biggest causes of low elasticity. See a visible difference in your hair’s elasticity and health after you give your hair a much-needed moisture boost with deep conditioning treatments, which (you’re in luck!) we offer right here at Grace Gold, and by using other deep conditioning masks and products at home.

Change Your Diet

You also need to give your hair and skin the nutrients it needs if you want a healthy scalp & hair. After all, we are what we eat. Consuming the right foods that are full of protein, such as eggs and meat in your diet will nourish your hair. Also include salmon and nuts in your diet as they contain omega-3 fatty acids, which promote healthy hair growth.

Reduce The Use of Styling Tools

Any styling tools that are heat intensive are terrible for your hair. All the heat does is drain the natural moisture off your hair and cause further damage. Limiting the use of styling tools and sticking to natural ways of styling your hair will show drastic changes to the health of your hair.

Use A Wide-Toothed Comb

In order to reduce the friction caused by brushing your hair and evenly distribute oil across your hair, a wide-toothed comb is a much healthier alternative. As this is a gentler approach to brush your hair, it’s high time you say goodbye to your fine toothed combs and hairbrushes.

Add Olive Oil To Your Routine

Extra virgin olive oil is a highly underrated hair oil only now getting the recognition it deserves. The fatty acids found in this oil penetrate deep into your hair while improving its elasticity. Mixing olive oil in your deep conditioner is one way to add it to your routine, but you can also do an oil treatment with it.

Looking after your hair doesn’t necessarily have to be a high maintenance routine. These are some simple ways you can go about restoring moisture in your hair, which is the biggest key to maintaining your hair’s elasticity.
