Every time I reach out for my hair and feel it needs more attention, I remember the scene of Julia Roberts’ hair drenched in Mayo in “My Bestfriend’s Wedding” film. To me, this scene is more of a nightmare. The idea of applying something sticky or with a pungent scent is simply unreasonable and not practical.
After many years of reading and experimenting, I reached a practical and easy hair routine that both protects and nourishes the hair.
1- First: Hair beauty starts on the inside
I always thought that hair gets its needed nutrients by applying products to it externally. I discovered that the best nourishment our hair receives is in fact the food we consume. That does not mean that I will dictate that you only eat avocados and salmon, and drink watercress shake with ginger and flax seeds.
It is actually much simpler than this. Our hair needs protein, biotin, and vitamin C, which helps in collagen production, iron, and zinc, which we’ll find in eggs and fruits, such as strawberries and oranges, in addition to spinach, potatoes, nuts, and beans. In short, all the things your mama has been begging you to eat since you were two. If we consume a varied diet that contains protein, vegetables and fruits, we will be more than fine.
