For those of you who want to speed up the hair growth process, there’s one brutal truth: no matter what products and oils you use, HAIR GROWS NO MORE AND NO FASTER THAN APPROXIMATELY 0.5 INCHES PER MONTH! Whoever tells you differently, is a scammer.
You should focus on growing a healthy, shiny and strong hair instead of a long one!
What do you prefer? A healthy, shiny and strong long hair or a frizzy damaged one? Let me put it this way: you can’t fight the natural laws, so quit wasting your time trying! Invest your time in growing a beautiful healthy hair, not a long one! You can’t make your hair grow faster, but you can make it grow healthy.
Hair growth is heavily influenced by age, genetics, lifestyle and diet. You can’t control the aging process and the genetics, but you can develop a diet and a lifestyle that can help you a lot to achieve incredible results in terms of hairstyle.
A HEALTHY HAIR ON A HEALTHY BODY
Despite the fact that everybody wants to live a healthy life, very few succeed in doing so. A balanced diet and a less stressful lifestyle have an impact not only on your hair looks, but also on your entire body and emotional state.
In terms of lifestyle, the things are pretty straightforward: get enough sleep and make a habit of drinking a lot of water.
To make the healthy hair growth process complete, you should harmonize your lifestyle with a balanced diet based on iron rich foods and proteins.
According to the nutritionists and dermatologists, here are the 7 most important vitamins to include in your diet for a healthy growing hair:
1. Proteins: eggs, chicken breast, banana
The hair follicle is made out of proteins, so it’s pretty obvious why this is an essential nutrient for growing a gorgeous hair. Also, the lack of protein in your body can cause hair loss.
2. Iron-rich foods: greens, tofu, beans, brown rice, spinach, shrimp
Iron and hemoglobin play a significant role in repairing the cells that stimulate hair growth. Iron can be found in vegetables, beef and chicken liver or cereals. Make sure you take vitamin C to help your body absorb the iron!
3. Vitamin C: oranges, lime, broccoli, chili peppers, kiwi, strawberries
Vitamin C is benefic not only for your hair, but for the entire immune system, therefore a diet rich in vitamin C can help you prevent hair loss.
4. Omega 3: seafood, chia seeds, soybeans, walnuts
A study published in 2013 demonstrates that Omega 3 fatty acids can prevent hair loss and even reverse the process. In addition, the Omega 3 can increase the strength of the hair by making it thicker.
5. Biotin-rich foods: seeds, nuts, avocado, liver, salmon, sweet potato
Being used to treat various hair disorders, including alopecia, biotin prevents the inflammation of the hair follicle that leads to hair loss. The biotin-rich foods not only improve the hair growth, but also protect the skin, slowing down the aging process.
6. Vitamin A: carrots, spinach, mango, goat cheese, cheddar, butter, herring, watermelon
Stimulating the sebaceous gland to produce more sebum, vitamin A helps a lot in protecting the hair follicle and in keeping your scalp as healthy as possible.
7. Vitamin E: peanuts, pistachio, avocado, blackberries, sunflower seeds
Taking into consideration that many high-end beauty brands include vitamin E into their hair products, there’s no doubt that this nutrient is very efficient in treating all sorts of hair disorders. Vitamin E is an important factor in increasing the shininess of your hair.
You are responsible for your body, mind and spirit. Your hair reflects your general health! You’ve got to pay close attention to what your hair is trying to tell you about yourself! Treat your hair with maximum responsibility and inspire others to do the same. You can’t make your hair grow faster than 0.5 inches per month, but you can control how healthy and shiny your hair grows.
