It seems just about every other day we hear about another new herb, fruit, or vegetable that can be found in a remote part of the world that is amazing for our health, beauty or mind. It’s either from a plant, the water or even from an animal’s behind. (Emu oil* is from the Emu bird’s behind I swear I don’t make this stuff up).
Well, not every miracle food has to be shipped in from around the world for us to benefit from its goodness. Sometimes we just need to go to our local grocer.
What about cucumbers? We eat them in salads, or juice them, they are even great just added to fresh water for the wonderful flavor. Cucumbers are known to be one of the best foods for your body’s overall health, a great source of Vitamin B, they hydrate the body and they even fight cancers like breast, ovarian, uterine and prostate. Add aiding in weight loss, and benefits for diabetics and you can see why all of us need to be eating them daily. Now with all those benefits I just threw at you, there is no doubt cucumbers are great for your hair too, but why specifically?
Cucumbers are high in silicon and sulphur, and the juice of the cucumber aids in hair growth. The silica* is a trace mineral which contributes to the strengthening of the body’s connective tissues and results in stronger nails and hair and combats hair loss.
It’s no wonder we are seeing more hair products touting the goodness of cucumbers and enticing us with rich shampoos, conditioners and moisturizers with the green fruit (yes, cucumbers are not a veggie). Here are 10 products that contain Cucumber that you really need to check out.
