No matter what kind of hair you have been born with, there are various hair and beauty tips to maintain its upkeep and make it healthy, glossy, and beautiful. Here are some tips for healthy hair that may help in maintaining your crowning glory:

It is important to note that one of the most significant healthy hair tips is to begin with what you consume. Your diet is important in determining what kind of nutrients you are supplying it. Incorporate plenty of green leafy vegetables and fresh juicy fruits, as these are believed to contain the nutrients and vitamins for healthy hair growth. Dairy products are also essential for healthy hair care.

Refrain from consuming excess refined, processed and tinned food products. Folk therapists, as well as modern medical experts believe that foods containing artificial additives and chemical flavorings deny the nutrition to the body and mind. Specific herbs and spices are believed to contribute nourishment to the hair. Some of the hair-healthy herbs and spices include aromatic seeds of the cumin herb of the carrot family, turmeric and common pepper. Adding a small pinch of each of these herbs to broths and stews add flavor to the contents of the dish, as well as provide necessary nutrient for the hair and the body. Freshly roasted and ground cumin seeds, along with, finely powdered black pepper, sprinkled over fresh yoghurt brings about an exotic piquant flavor. Stress is believed to be one of the most detrimental and damaging factors contributing to long-term health of hair. It is important to try and manage one's time and tasks in order to play down time-related obligations. Exercise, meditation and relaxation techniques help to calm and balance the mind. Soothing and tranquil music is also believed to be therapeutic in aiding the meditative techniques. Adequate rest and uninterrupted blissful sleep are also necessary in helping the natural process of rejuvenation.

Keep away from abrasive hair cleansers that are replete with chemicals, known to damage the tresses over time. Opt for herbal and mild natural cleansers and hair shampoos and softeners, especially if you are in the habit of washing your hair more than four times a week. Look out for herbal botanicals in shampoos and conditioners and make it a point to read the labels carefully as some fraudulent products that claim or mention "herbal" or "natural" may not contain any herbs at all.
