It’s not just about what you put on your hair!
When most of us think about hair growth, we think about products, oils, and butters that help our curls stay healthy and grow. But what about the things that we put in our body that effect the growth of our natural hair? Here are 3 ways to promote hair growth from within:
1. Take your vitamins– B12 vitamins have become fairly popularity lately due to their hair enhancing qualities. B12 helps to create healthy red blood cells that then carry oxygen to the living hair strands promoting growth. You can take a B12 supplement or chow down on some meat and dairy products. Other vitamins like vitamin A and E are great for shining and strong hair.
2. Drink your 8 glasses of water– Every living thing, including strands of hair and your scalp, needs water to thrive and grow. Hydrate your hair from the inside out.
3. Protein– Protein treatments are popular in the natural hair community. Having a protein rich diet can help promote hair growth and retention since the hair is made up of it.
