As someone who dyes their hair every two weeks, it is always my goal to find home remedies for hair care. Although food has never been really proven to actually grow hair, it does help maintain the look, feel, texture, and thickness, which is just as important as length! Word of the wise- *constantly trimming off your split ends does not make your hair grow faster!* These are just a few home products that can make your hair look and feel better not grow faster.
Being a vegetarian for 13 years it is quite hard for me to maintain my Vitamin b-12 levels, considering how important they are to hair (not to mention the hundred other great purposes they have), I decided to take b-12 vitamins to help me out a bit and it worked.
I also eat flax seeds. Flax seed contain micronutrients such as B vitamins, magnesium, potassium, lecithin, zinc and protein. In addition to nutrient-rich content, they also have the fatty acids necessary for not just only my hair but also my skin and nails as well. Hate seeing all of those strands in your brush? A deficiency of zinc makes your locks weak and fall out easily so flax seeds should be something you pick up the next time you hit up the grocery store.
While your there, hit up the veggie isle. Greens are great sources for vitamin A and C. Spinach and Broccoli are my go to for hair recovery.
Nuts are a go-to for thinning hair. Brazilian nuts contain large amounts of selenium, an important mineral for the health of your scalp. Walnuts, which happened to be my favorite nut, contain built-in conditioners like omega 3′s and alpha-linolenic acid which leave your hair smooth and think.
Now onto my most important hair care home remedy. eggs! Whether you’re eating them or are doing one of my gross but severely worth it hair masks, eggs definitely serve their person for luscious locks. The beauty nutrients like biotin and of course vitamin B-12 found in eggs do wonders!
Healthy hair is very important. If you’re like me and dye your hair, keeping up with healthy, pro-biotic foods and vitamins will keep your hair looking shiny and keep those nasty split-ends from appearing!
