Silica is supplied by Oats, outer layers of Potato, Red Pepper, Cucumbers and Bean Sprouts; while Iron comes from red meat, cereals of whole grain, eggs, Raisins, Vitamin C, Dates and leafy vegetables. Rich Protein is a must for hair growth, which comes from brewer’s yeast, and granulated Lecithin. Include Avocados, seeds, nuts, and Olive Oil in your diet.
Cleaning your hair is important, while some people require shampooing every day, for some others only weekly. Don’t use either too hot or cold water. Scrub your scalp with fingertips and not nails. Rinse off hair to make sure entire soap is washed off. Cleanliness is the key to keeping your hair in good condition and to reflect a more youthful you. It is a basic and significant hair care routine. Choose the right shampoo for your hair that do not contain chemicals; natural ingredients will be more advantageous to your hair.
