It’s finally getting warmer and summer is well and truly on the horizon. The cold, damp weather and dark nights will have not only taken their toll on our mood but left us feeling sluggish and tired. It’s time to start thinking about lighter and warmer days and plan for the sunshine ahead.

The winter season can really take a toll on our hair alongside products, styling tools and central heating. This can result in hair loss, dry, brittle and lack lustre hair. There is one simple life change you can make though that will help achieve luscious and healthy hair. Good nutrition is key to improving our overall health resulting in improved skin, strong nails, happy mood and weight loss. So, let’s get our hair strong, shiny and healthy and ready for summer.

Eating well really plays a big part in strong, healthy and shiny hair. You are what you eat is very true and I cannot emphasise this enough.
