If you caught my recent post on my hair journey, you’ll know that I’ve experienced hair thinning through my twenties (it sucks!), and I’m currently taking Priorin over a three month period to help with my hair’s growth.
So how’s it going so far? Well, due to a much-needed trim to remove crunchy dead ends, I haven’t seen a significant increase in length, but, I have noticed an abundance of new growth aka “baby hairs” which is always a good sign. Additionally, I’ve also noticed that my eyelashes have been looking long and full. Although I’ve been taking Priorin with growth of the hair on my head in mind, I certainly don’t mind how my lashes look in the meantime too!
While taking two capsules of Priorin a day has been an easy addition to my usual daily routine, I think it’s important to be aware of what you can do to support and enhance your hair’s health, even during the 3-month commitment period, for the best results.
Here are 5 simple things I do to help enhance my hair’s health:
Brush My Hair
During my recent haircut I was scolded by my hair dresser for not brushing my hair enough. Since my hair is naturally wavy, I often let it air dry to let the waves set. However, that’s since changed. He urged me to start brushing my hair more regularly in order to help stimulate the scalp, and disperse natural hair oils along the full length of my strands to help keep them moisturized.

Bye Bye Hair Elastics
Between working out and my signature hairstyle being the top knot, my hair is up a lot. Unfortunately, having your hair up can be tough on your strands, and the same hairdresser introduced me to a new type of hair band that helps to prevent hair kinks, breakage and pulling. That miracle product my friends is the telephone cord style hair band. Although they may look like a guarantee for an epic hair tangle, they are super easy to use and remove.

Wash My Hair Less
Grilling hair dressers for hair care advice seems to be something I’ve been doing my entire life. I remember back when I was a tween my hair dresser informed me that washing my hair every day (as I was doing at the time) was actually bad for my hair and very drying. Since my wavy hair has always been on the dry side, I took his advice right away and wash my hair only once a week on average. Although how often you should wash your hair can depend on your hair type, most of us don’t need to wash as often as we think to keep our hair healthy and happy. Click HERE for more info.
Eat More Chia Seeds
Kimberly Snyder is not only one of my favourite celebrity nutritionist, but she happens to have the most incredible hair. When she recently published an article on her tips for growing healthy hair, I was quick to read it. I was surprised to find that her #1 beauty tip was to eat more chia seeds to absorb their omega 3 fatty acids and enhance circulation. For a tasty way to enjoy more chia seeds, check out my recipe for vegan chocolate truffles.
Start Each Day With Greens
As you may know already, I’m a HUGE fan of starting the day with a giant glowing green smoothie which is a healthy habit I picked up a few years ago when I first discovered Kimberly Snyder and her amazing Beauty Detox guide. Even in her article for hair growth she highlights her Glowing Green Smoothie, and it really is a great way to take your body in a healthy direction. If you haven’t jumped on the green smoothie train yet, I strongly urge you to do so asap!
