Let's talk about nutrition and hair
It is true that it is important to carry in a hair routine, adequate treatments to keep it healthy and strong, but it is also true that nutrition is essential for its entire cycle, nourishing from the inside out.
Ginger Milk Natural Care, aware of the process, we are involved to give you some tips that can reinforce the conditions for the care of your hair:
What you drink, also affects your hair.
Drinking water is essential to keep the hair root hydrated to prevent hair loss, just as flowers weaken and wilt. We recommend drinking 8 glasses of water per day, as follows:
2 glasses upon waking + 2 glasses mid-morning + 1 mid-day + 2 glasses in the afternoon + 1 glass before bedtime.
Too much caffeine is very damaging to your hair, drinking it in excess causes dehydration, weakening the roots and causing hair loss. Therefore, as recommended in the previous point, drinking water will help to counteract its effect.
Take advantage of orange and citrus colored foods!
They provide a lot of vitamin A and C, such as oranges, peaches, carrots, mangoes, pumpkins, among others. Those that contain Vitamin C, help to a better absorption of iron and favor the synthesis of collagen to give a healthy appearance, such as oranges and lemons. Carrots have the particularity of working as a protector against UV radiation, pollution and climate change.
The greener the better!
The consumption of vegetables such as asparagus, broccoli, cucumber, celery, zucchini, avocado, among others; provide lots of minerals and vitamins A, C and E that nourish and strengthen your hair from the inside. To avoid breakage, the ideal is to consume legumes that provide iron, zinc, protein and biotin that help considerably to tone the hair fiber, among them: beans, chickpeas and lentils.
Beware of heat!
Excessive use of irons, hair dryers and exposure to sunlight dehydrate your hair and deteriorate the natural keratin of the strand, causing breakage. If in your routine is very common to use hair dryer, you should do it at a medium temperature and do not place the nozzle directly on the hair, the recommended distance is 30 to 40 cm and always, before exposing it to heat, use a thermal and sunscreen as our Be Wise.
Dairy products We know that calcium is necessary to go from fragile and brittle hair to healthy and strong hair. For those who are lactose intolerant, you can find other foods rich in calcium such as: nuts, broccoli, sardines, chia seeds, sesame or flax seeds, strawberries, raspberries, kiwi, figs, plums, among others. Calcium helps to neutralize the pH and better absorption of other micronutrients for the scalp, moisturizing the hair for a healthy and strong growth.
A touch of histidine
Histidine is a component of natural origin, an amino acid that is part of the protein and is responsible for protecting the tissues, so that they grow and repair, forming a vital part of the hair structure and at the same time, to maintain an optimal circulatory system which helps reduce inflammation and irritation of the scalp, conditions such as dandruff and protects from UV rays in times like summer. You can get it in foods such as salmon, tuna, chicken, red meat, soy, nuts, almonds, rice, corn, and eggs, are some of the foods.
An important food for our body as a protein and for its high content of Vitamins B12 and Biotin (B7), nourishes and strengthens the hair follicles avoiding their rupture, reducing hair loss and helping hair growth in a healthy way.
