I will not lie – I love the idea of eternal youth and beauty. But when most of us reach (or are close to reaching) our thirties, we tend to look at our bodies for signs of age more often. And, of course, we find them. Maybe it's the tiny wrinkles on the side of the eyes, or more commonly – a gray hair! And now we can not look at the mirror without focusing on this little guy. And you hear a calm but terrifying voice: "Get ready, you're getting old!" We are starting to make assessments of what we have achieved so far. Or our mother's questions: "When do you plan to get married?" or "Where are my grandchildren?"
Ugh, that's the fault of gray hair! If it was not for that, I would be happy to enjoy my life without having to think about the responsibilities of life! I'm joking; I'm just too vain and I want to look good!
What has bothered me in recent years is the fact that my grandmother's hair never became gray! I thought it was impossible! How come I still have twenty years and my mane has already started to fade? So, I've done research on the subject of gray hair reversal or at least keep its natural color as long as you can. Is it achievable? And if so, how to do it? It has turned out that there are ways to accomplish this impossible idea at first glance. And there are people who succeed at that!
Here are the indications I found for finding the natural color and liveliness of the hair:
– Proteins – the word itself in Greek means "of great importance" and s & # 39, specifically applied to hair. The main reason why hair (and nails) become fragile is the lack of protein in its diet. This is logical because the hair is mainly manufactured if proteins like keratin. That's why if we have some problems with our "fur", the first thing we need to look at is our dietary intake. The well-known protein sources are lean meat and egg whites. But there are many good sources of plants and bees. Here are some suggestions: legumes, quinoa, sprouts, hemp seeds, nuts, algae such as spirulina and bee pollen essential. Bee pollen is so beneficial to humans that it describes a whole article, but I will keep it for later.
– Minerals – The important minerals for hair and nails are silicon, sulfur, copper and zinc. We need to make sure to absorb them with food intake (I'm not a big fan of supplements, but sometimes it's a good way to provide nutrient compounds). You can find sulfur in Brussels beaks, beans, eggs, cage, fish, garlic, turnip, and wheat germ; Other foods that contain these minerals are oysters, potatoes, cereals, legumes, lean meat, mushrooms, sesame and pumpkin seeds, beef liver, shrimp, mustard, and so on. Do not forget plants containing silicon – apples, brown rice, tomatoes, cucumbers, almonds, grapes, flax seeds and peppers, and so on. Do you feel already overwhelmed? Wait, there is more!
– Anti-inflammatory – inflammation in the body (especially in hair follicles) can cause a lot of problems such as dandruff, hair loss, premature aging and so on. Thus, it would be extremely beneficial for the whole body to include anti-inflammatory substances in our diet. Here are some good suggestions: turmeric (of course), cod liver oil (or oily fish such as tuna, salmon and mackerel), colostrum, beetroot, greens (again!), Ginger, olive oil cold pressed, whole grains and hazelnuts.
– Detoxify the body – the accumulation of toxins in the body is one of the main causes of many diseases and ailments. Regular detox has many benefits – weight loss, clean skin, better complexion, more energy, stronger immune system, improved mood and more. By eliminating as many toxins as possible, we help the body produce stronger, more vibrant and naturally colored hair. There are a lot of detoxification methods available and you just have to choose the one that suits you best. You can do a fruit juice clean up three days a month; If your lifestyle does not allow regular detoxification, try at least having an early dinner (no later than 6 pm) and drink some water and tea for the day. rest of the evening. Or vice versa – use the first hours of the day when the body cleans naturally and drinks fresh fruit / vegetable juices or detox tea. Also, I would recommend drinking as much as possible of pure water – filtered, reverse osmosis, distilled or pure spring water. Do not forget the toxins we absorb through the skin by applying creams, lotions, gels, and so on. Use organic cosmetics or do them yourself to be sure of what exactly you are putting on your skin. You can find a lot of home remedies ideas in Gaia & Beauty Salon. Another useful thing to help repair the mane is to place a water filter in the shower for chlorine and other toxic substances in the tap water tend to damage the hair.
