I see that a lot of naturals are still looking for the one product (or product line) that’s going to make their hair problems go away.
Whether it’s to grow longer hair (TWA or not), repair damage from chemicals as they transition or restore their hair’s natural luster and shine, there is no actual product that will do it for them. It can’t be stressed enough that you need a healthy body to truly achieve healthy hair.
Now, we all hear this all the time, but a lot of us have turned a deaf ear to this advice, and end up frustrated because we keep running into problems that can’t be fixed by a product (natural or chemical). Having a holistic approach for your natural hair regimen is very important and I found that this is what worked for me and many other women — usually unintentionally.
You honestly don’t need that many products for your hair, especially when you are taking care of your body with high nutrition.
As I’ve said before in other articles, eating more fruits and veggies help, but that’s not going to give you the high concentrations of vitamins and minerals that your body needs to grow and maintain healthy hair. The following tips are what I’ve found to work for achieving healthy hair that grows, shines and thickens naturally.
Consume high nutrition smoothies everyday
This would be one of my top tips to women who are looking to obtain optimum health. These smoothies are made with herbs that are very high in almost 100 different vitamins and minerals that the body needs.
When you nourish your body to this state, your body can’t help but to regenerate. You’ll notice that your skin’s complexion will clear and have a glow, your hair will grow and look glossy, your nails will grow stronger and longer, and your energy will improve.
My personal daily smoothie consists of seaweeds and moringa leaf powder, which gives me 92 of the 102 minerals that our bodies need.
Eat an alkaline based diet
If only you could continue to eat burgers, fries and pizza while drinking your high-nutrition smoothies. But it’s not that easy and for a lot of women, it’s impossible.
Changing your diet is one of the easiest things to do, but spewing out excuses not to do so is even easier. Postponing a diet switch is the main reason why a lot of people have trouble with their hair and skin. Now, I don’t mean just growth, but actual hair health.
You can grow longer hair on a bad diet, but it is usually lackluster, thin and downright dull. Switching to an alkaline diet is all in a matter of substituting everything acidic you eat with foods that are alkaline (having a pH level of 7.0 or higher). This excludes hybridized produce and animal products.
