take care of your hair

take care of your hair

Our guest blogger Danielle Romero is a mum, with master diploma in nutrition and child nutrition. She created the space, Jugos para el alma , which is now a community with more than 450 000 followers. Check out her tips on how to take care of your hair…

 

“If we pay attention to the signs, our skin and hair can give us vital information about our overall health…

 

Today my hair looks healthy and strong, but it has not been always like that. I used to lose a lot of hair daily: it was normal to wake up and find hair on my pillow, in my apartment and especially when I was washing my hair. My stylist said this was ‘normal’ since I had a lot of hair, but I did some extra research and discovered that nutritional deficiencies can cause excessive hair loss.

 

Four years ago, I decided to make changes to my diet and to my personal care products. Today I can happily say that my hair is stronger, healthier and it does not fall out like it used to!

 

Here are the top tips I learned to promote hair growth, condition and durability:

 

◦ Foods rich in essential fatty acids such as chia seeds, line seeds, nuts, fish, avocados… They are ideal for your hair and also contain minerals and antioxidants.
◦ Vitamin E helps maintain thick, bright hair and avoid hair loss. Almonds are a very good option. (Remember to soak the almonds for a minimum of 8 hours, to re-hydrate them and activate their benefits, and then dry them before eating.) Almonds are also rich in magnesium, that helps reduce stress.
◦ Red-purple foods are rich in antioxidants. Try blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries and cherries. Antioxidants also help prevent the risk of damage from free radicals.
◦ Zinc is responsible for the strength of the nails and hair, but also for activating their growth. Sesame seeds are one of the richest sources, but zinc is also found in pumpkin seeds, lentils, chickpeas, cacao and nuts.
◦ Collagen is found in the connective tissues of the body and is essential to the health of the hair. With age, the quantity of collagen that is naturally produced by the body reduces. For this reason, we should complement its production with foods rich in Vitamin C, such as citrus, strawberries, kiwi, guava, capsicums, and leafy greens such as kale and spinach.
◦ Biotin, a water-soluble B vitamin, participates to the health of the hair and the scalp. Missing biotin can lead to hair loss and brittle nails. Biotin is found in nuts, whole rice, avocados and oats.
◦ Iron and proteins are also essential to hair growth. They are found in green leaves, dried fruits, vegetables, figs and berries. Remember that iron is better absorbed when taken together with aliments that are rich in Vitamin C.
◦ Drink a lot of water
◦ Sleep a minimum of 8 hours each night
◦ Relax and meditate, keep your stress at the minimum level

 

    My recommendation is to always buy products made from natural ingredients, and free from parabens, sulphates, silicones, Vaseline, ammoniac, synthetic fragrances, polyethylene and others derivates from petroleum.

     

    Remember that your exterior beauty is a mirror of your interior beauty. For this reason, what you eat, drink and think are all very important!

     

    With Love,

    Danielle Romero”
