G is for: Garlic, Ginger, Guava, Grapes…
Growth is one important word for the Natural hair journey and life’s journey too. Most times people who don’t see growth believe their hair isn’t healthy, this isn’t always the case.
Sometimes, we don’t see growth because of many reasons that hinder it such as stress, unhealthy habits/diets, hormones, breakage,etc.
Healthy hair will most likely result to growth. Let’s see what we’ve been missing in our diet, shall we?
Garlic is said to promote hair growth and prevent hair loss when you apply its juices to your scalp and hair. It combats dandruff and also strengthens hair. It contains Vitamin E which helps prevent breakage, Vitamin B1&2 and C. It also contains copper, manganese and calcium. Adding it to your diet can give your meals a lovely season and it’s healthy for your body too!
Ginger is a good remedy for dandruff or dry itchy scalp. It contains natural anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that are essential for clean healthy scalp. It also helps in making the hair softer and manageable. It also stimulates hair growth too!
Rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants, this fruit helps your hair grow faster and prevents damage. Its leaves have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It also contains other vitamins such as Vitamin B3,B5, B6 and B12 that help repair tissues and cells.
Grape and Grapefruits are high in antioxidants and Vitamin E. They help promote hair growth as a result of increase in blood circulation in the scalp. It also strengthens blood vessels and promotes healthy hair. They help in controlling dandruff (have you tried grapeseed oil?) and prevent hair loss. They can be consumed or applied/massaged on scalp(its oil).
Last but not least…
Don’t forget to ask your doctor/nutritionist/health/food specialist to make sure it’s safe for you especially if you’re preggys, lactating, have allergies or ill. Also remember that some hair products may contain some of these in the ingredients, read the labels.
