We all want strong, shiny, healthy hair, but unfortunately, the stresses and strains of daily modern life tend to make this goal difficult to achieve at times.

A busy schedule and hefty workload often mean our locks take a bit of a back seat, and the result is generally not pretty.

Subject both to the elements – sun, rain etc – and to the effects of an air conditioned or heated artificial interior climate, tired, neglected hair becomes weak, fragile and brittle.

If your tresses are feeling a little the worse for wear, and you’d like to see their natural shine restored, read on: I’ve put together this list of 8 ways to strengthen your hair.

1. Protein Boost

To begin with, it is important to understand that weak hair need special attention.

If yours is feeling a little brittle and lifeless, you’ll need to get yourself a specially designed set of shampoo and conditioner.

Opt for something that is protein enriched: this will help your sad tresses to rebuild.

2. Moisturise

Dull, fragile hair is often left looking lifeless because it is dehydrated.

Very dry tresses are prone to breakage in ways that healthy, nourished locks are not and so it’s important that you get yours the moisture that they need.

Apply an intense conditioning hair mask about once every wee, or twice in times of real hair crisis, and consider a leave in re-hydrating treatment as well.

3. Turn down the Temperature

Beware of taking very hot showers.

Exposing your locks to high temperatures can actually contribute to weakening.

Make sure your water temperature is sitting somewhere around the pleasantly warm mark, and never let it go all the way up to scaldingly hot.

4. Supplement

Your diet is such an important factor when it comes to re-conditioning weak and lifeless hair.2

Make sure you are getting all the correct vitamins and minerals by adding a multivitamin to your daily diet regime, or by increasing your intake of foods rich in protein and iron, and those full of calcium as well.
