What most people don’t realise is that issues with hair are caused from what’s going on inside your body; they occur from blocked up blood vessels which results from circulation being clogged up with excess protein, cooked fats and toxic waste in the body. This stops nutrients from being able to get into the hair follicles which causes hair loss, breakage, thinning etc. Basically, your hair is not being fed properly.
You want to get your body functioning properly and improve your circulation so that minerals, fatty acids and amino acids may be absorbed by the hair follicles.
Include the following foods in your diet on a consistent basis to help cleanse and nourish your body and create radiant, thick and luscious hair.
Cucumber contains the mineral silica, which promotes beautiful hair, skin, and nails. It strengthens the hair by improving collagen in the body, so cucumbers are a great way to prevent your hair from breakage and damage.
Avocado’s healthy fats promote moisture throughout the entire body so they not only help prevent hair breakage, but can also stimulate hair growth and strength. Your hair needs proteins and healthy fat to keep it healthy and shiny and avocados are one of the good sources for healthy fats, omega-3, as well as biotins (vitamin B).
Kale is highly alkaline which helps prevent your body from becoming over-acidic. High acidity eventually causes dysfunction in the body, including your hair. Kale is full of iron and B vitamins all of which your hair loves. Greens are also rich in minerals which are crucial to the health of your nails, hair and skin. They’re also water-rich so they will hydrate and nourish your cells.
Strawberries have powerful antioxidants which help to increase blood flow and improve the circulation in your body and scalp. This increased scalp circulation will stimulate the hair follicle and help to “wake up” the root and encourage hair growth.
The rich array of nutrients in celery stalks and leaves help to nourish the hair follicles. Celery leaves are often processed into shampoo to thicken hair. Celery leaves contain vegetable protein that stimulates the growth of hair.
