Getting Your Hair to Grow

Some women seem to feel that the only way to get their hair to grow long and healthy is to head to the beauty store or salon for the latest high-end treatment. While these can help, what you put into your body is just as important to hair growth as what products you put on your hair. There are three areas to start working on when trying to grow your hair:

1. Nutrition
Preparing a nutritious meal is hard to do in these busy times, but it's essential if you want a healthy body and a good head of hair. Eat protein-rich foods and increase your fish intake, since fish contains the essential natural oils and fatty acids that your hair needs. I choose organic meats as they don't have any added chemicals which aren’t good for my hair or my body. Also, remember to drink plenty of water. It not only flushes out all the toxins in your body but it also carries the nutrients where they need to go.

2. Vitamins
It's important to make sure you’re getting specific B vitamins in your body. Look for First, seek to get these vitamins in your diet, but if that's not possible I find that a B-complex vitamin works best.
