The question everyone wants to know……. Can Vida Glow actually help grow and strengthen your hair?
The answer is simple YES!
Collagen is a major component in hair growth, because it fights off free radicals that can affect your hair’s texture, growth and thickness. As collagen levels naturally decrease in our bodies as we age, the quality of our hair begins to be affected, mix that in with poor diet, toxins, GHD’s, blow-drying, curling wands, colouring and stress and our hair really takes a blow.
Including collagen in your daily diet can help to strengthen hair at the root by restoring collagen in the hair shaft to improve hair growth, thickness, texture and volume. A daily collagen supplement such as Vida Glow marine collagen has been shown to support the body’s hair building proteins, leading to longer and thicker hair. Collagen is very effective in treating dry brittle hair by repairing and sometimes even reversing spilt ends by providing healthy moisture levels within the hair fibres.
We recommend our Level 2 or Prosperity Package, that’s two sachets a day. Not only will you notice a healthy hair makeover, your skin and nails will also thank you for their newfound radiance and strength.
We believe what you put inside our bodies has a direct effect on how we feel and how we look on the outside. Let’s take a look at some healthy food which will aid in faster growing hair.
Essential Fatty Acids
Essential fatty acids are important for your overall health but they also contribute to the health of your hair. Including fatty acids in your diet can help to prevent hair loss and even encourage hair to grow healthier, and at a faster rate. Walnuts, almonds, flaxseeds, salmon, cod, tuna, crab shrimp, avocado and canola oil are great foods to eat for healthy hair.
Vitamin C is one of the most effective nutrients to help grow and strengthen hair. Vitamin C helps build collagen in the body which surrounds the hair strands. As we age the collagen begins to breakdown, causing hair to be more vulnerable to breaking. Foods high in vitamin C include: citrus fruits, strawberries and red peppers.
Iron Rich Foods
Iron is an important mineral that your body needs in order to function properly. Iron benefits the body by strengthening hair and promoting growth. Lack of iron in your diet results in your hair becoming dull, thin, and dry. Foods rich in iron include green leafy vegetables, pumpkin seeds, nuts, chickpeas, beans, dried fruits and berries.
Zinc Rich Foods
The mineral zinc assists in scalp protection. A lack of zinc can lead to hair loss and a dry, flaky scalp. Some of the foods high in zinc are pumpkin seeds, brazil nuts, eggs, pecans, spinach, garlic, mushrooms and fresh oysters.
B vitamins promote cell growth and division, which is important for healthy hair growth. Biotin and vitamin B6 in particular can reduce hair thinning by increasing scalp circulation and rejuvenating hair follicles. Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin. Too little biotin can cause brittle hair and may lead to hair loss. Foods rich vitamin B are meat, eggs, nuts, wholegrains, liver, soy flour and yeast.
Prevent Breakage with Vitamin E
Vitamin E is required to nourish damaged hair and to prevent breakage. Some foods high in vitamin E include sunflower seeds, almonds, pine nuts, dried apricots, avocado, spinach, broccoli and olives. You can also use vitamin E oil, apply the pool to your scalp which will help reduce inflammation, increases blood circulation, boosts oxygen supply, and repairs damaged hair follicles. Use once or twice a week to aid hair growth.
