Even if you feed your hair well (Do You Care For Your Hair: Food) and use high quality natural hair products (Do You Care For Your Hair: Hair Products) – there might be more!

If you’re constantly stressed, don’t expect your hair to ignore it. When we are under stress, our hair follicles are deprived of the oxygen, minerals, and vitamins. Our body burns more energy and vitamins and nutrients are used by the parts of the body that are critical like the heart, lungs, and brain.

Have you noticed your hair looking dull when you’re under stress, lasting even many days after?

It takes time for hair to recover. A week of stress can affect your hair for about 3 months, with 6-9 months needed for a complete recovery.

Don’t ignore stress!

Along with many different techniques to relieve stress like yoga, walking and meditation, there are some good natural supplements or herbal teas that can help you to relax:

  1. Genestra’s Herbal Calm is a proven one.
  2. Passionflower extract is another great option.


If you prefer a calming teas chose those with:

One of my recent favourites is the aroma Ultrasonic Oil Diffuser. It is the most efficient form of diffusion. Oils are not heated at all. This diffuser uses ultrasonic technology which converts the oil and water under high frequency vibration into a fine cold mist. This mist is then diffused throughout the entire room creating a natural spa-like atmosphere. Lavender is my favorite; when I leave it overnight I sleep much better.

It looks really cool, easy to use safe and silent!  Just add water and your favorite essential oil or blends.
