Healthy hair - selection of beauty products
With the help of a balanced diet, you can improve health, lose weight, and also get rid of many aesthetic problems, the root cause of which lies in the lack of vitamins and minerals. Despite the widespread belief about genetic causes, heredity determines only 30% of hair condition. Everything else is in our hands.
We invite you to find out what beauty products you need to include in your menu.
What foods are needed for hair health
The main building block of hair is keratin, a protein composed of amino acids. Thanks to natural processes in the body, we can produce some of them, and the rest we get from the outside. This is why it is so important to add foods rich in this substance to your diet. These are eggs, dairy products, meat, fish.
The minerals responsible for the thickness of the hair are zinc, copper and iron. Their lack is manifested by fragility, loss of color, baldness. And in order to replenish them, you need to develop the correct nutrition system. The diet should include the following foods:
legumes (lentils, beans);
- nuts and seeds;
- green vegetables;
- red fish;
- buckwheat, millet, oatmeal.
- Orange: apricots, oranges, peaches, carrots, pumpkin.
- Greens: asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, as well as cauliflower, kiwi.
What foods are best for hair health
Another problem besides dryness and loss of color is increased oiliness, which also causes hair loss. Avoid traditional fast food foods such as fried meats, potatoes, baked goods, and sodas, as this will increase sebum secretion. Replace them with walnuts, seeds and red fish, which are rich in unsaturated fatty acids, which are responsible for the elasticity and shine of the hair.
Vitamins for hair beauty
Antioxidant-rich vegetables and fruits are needed to create a healthy menu, nutritionists have suggested a list by color in this matter.
Red: strawberries, cherries, pomegranates, tomatoes.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals. It also promotes the production of collagen, which maintains the elasticity of blood vessels and strengthens the hair follicles. It should be combined with vitamin E as they enhance each other's action.
Vitamin E - strengthens blood vessels by increasing blood flow to the scalp, which ensures tissue saturation with nutrients. Tocopherol has a moisturizing and regulating effect. Sources of this fat-soluble vitamin: almonds, hazelnuts, wheat germ, sunflower seeds.
Vitamin A slows down aging and at the same time accelerates tissue regeneration. Its disadvantage manifests itself in thinning and brittle hair. It is found in large quantities in carrots, pumpkin. For better absorption, they should be paired with fatty foods such as oils, avocados or nuts.
B vitamins - support the synthesis of melatonin, which is responsible for maintaining color and preventing gray hair. Biotin is needed for healthy hair as well as nails. In addition, folic acid with riboflavin is necessary to saturate the hair follicle with oxygen and nutrients. These substances are worth looking for in green and red vegetables, grains.
Cleansing and restoration: which shampoo to choose
A well-formulated diet is a key ingredient in strengthening hair. But it does not exclude the need for proper care - cosmetics should also be chosen carefully.
A good effect is shown by natural preparations with vitamin supplements, which have a complex effect at the cellular level. They are made with the addition of restoring complexes that have regulating properties (softening, moisturizing, normalizing the water-fat balance).
Vegetable oils have a softening effect on the scalp, and their conditioning and revitalizing properties are beneficial. The list of essences used in the cosmetic industry is very wide. The most common are avocado, jojoba, macadamia, olive.
Protein, hyaluronic acid, medications, and herbal extracts are often found among the useful components in the shampoo. They provide an anti-inflammatory, regenerating effect, stimulate hair growth.
