Cheveux vitaminés par l’alimentation

Hair vitaminized by food

During winter, the scalp is exposed to cold temperatures and regular friction (hats, hoods, earmuffs, etc.), which leads to a loss of volume and shine in our hair.
The first point to pay attention to is diet and hydration! And above all, don't forget to drink at least 1 and a half liters, or even 2 liters of water per day in order to hydrate your cells, promote their renewal and contribute to the good health of your hair!

Foods that are beneficial for your hair
Fish & meats both naturally contain amino acids like methionine and cystine which are precursors to keratin. The latter is the main component of hair and improves its structure.
Wheat germ and cereals, filled with B vitamins which according to scientific advice serve to support hair growth and contribute to hair beauty.
Colorful fruits and vegetables, which contain, among other things, vitamin C (ascorbic acid), an antioxidant with flavonoids that protects follicles and reduces hair loss. Present in most shampoos, but nothing beats eating it fresh on the plate.
Whole eggs, rich in vitamin A which ensure the regeneration of scalp tissues.
Cocoa and dark chocolate, rich in iron, which increase hemoglobin levels in order to oxygenate the hair. Be careful not to overdo the quantities. Just a few bites can meet part of your iron needs.
Lentils and legumes, a source of vegetable protein, rich in vitamin B and zinc, the latter serves to make styling shine, stimulate hair growth and prevent hair loss.
Oils, this good vegetable fat, is as much an ally to heart health as it is to hair health, by providing essential fatty acids, omega-3.
Almonds and nuts of all types, rich in vitamin E which promotes hair growth by supporting blood circulation nourishing the scalp.
Seaweed, yes, it is a natural source of vitamins A, B and C and zinc.

All these foods will not only be beneficial for your hair, they will also be beneficial for supporting your cardiovascular health.

In addition to a healthy diet, use a mask two to three times a week after your shampoo to provide nutrition and hydration to the fiber. Don't forget to nourish it daily with a leave-in treatment designed to strengthen and protect your hair from heat. While preventing the appearance of split ends and frizz.

Use elastics, like the scrunchie, which don't cut through your hair.

The change of season is also a good time to visit your hairdresser to freshen up your cut and treat yourself to a moisturizing treatment.
