There are many factors that contribute to the health of your hair such as the weather, diet and the amount of manipulation your hair receives. Some of these factors cannot be influenced by external factors, but most can be adjusted through changing your diet. I find that the quickest way I see lasting results for my hair care is by altering my diet and drinking the delicious benefits from a fresh juice recipe. Here are a couple of my faves below!
Beetroot With An Orange Twist
My mother loved to make this juice for me when I was little. “This is great, especially since you have an iron deficiency” she would always say.Beetroot improves your blood circulation, which enables your body to transport minerals through your body. Here are the ingredients:
- 66 grams of beetroot
- 2 oranges
- 2 big carrots
This juice is super delicious! The essential ingredient is the kale leaves, which contains vitamin A, C, B6, and calcium. It also contains a high amount of magnesium.
250 grams of pineapple
2 celery stalks
6 large kale leaves
1 green apple
I love this juice, however, it tends to be a bit sour. To combat the sourness, I like to add a tablespoon of honey, after I have successfully juiced the ingredients.
100 grams of strawberries
50 grams of raspberries
50 grams of blackberries
1 tablespoon of Manuka honey
You may be a little repulsed by the idea of drinking onion juice, but drinking this can strengthen your hair and provide your follicles the nutrients it needs. This juice is great for those who have damaged hair who searching for an internal cure-all.
2 big oranges
2 big carrots
There are few things that are important to keep in mind when discussing our hair:
1. Your hair is primarily composed of protein, specifically keratin. Consuming protein is one of the essential steps towards the growth of your hair and nails. There are also minerals that are essential for the health of your hair. Potassium, silica, sulfur, and manganese should be part of your diet.
2. Don’t forget also that vitamins A, B, C, E, K, and calcium also improve the health of your hair. Green (leafy) vegetables are often sources of the vitamins mentioned earlier.
In order to make my juices, I use a slow juicer. Due to the juicing technique of these machines, the minerals, vitamins, and taste are preserved.
So how do you juice for hair health?
We would love to know!
