Benefits for Curly Hair With Our Nutritious Curly Hair Smoothie
Spinach is a super food which contains omega-3, potassium, vitamins B, C and E and calcium, magnesium and iron. All which are essential for strong strands.
Raw Virgin Coconut Oil helps bind the proteins inside each hair strand. Try to buy organic if possible.
Flaxseed contain a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids which nourish follicles and help to prevent breakage by strengthening the strands.
These little guys contain an abundance of phosphorous, an ingredient proven to speed up hair growth. Chia translates to “strength” in the ancient language of the mayans- and this civilization was on to something. These bitty seeds are rich in fiber, protein and calcium.
Frozen berries are great because they provide an amazing amount of anti-oxidants, which help your body absorb nutrients and fight disease.
Bananas not only taste great in smoothies, they help your curly hair by injecting a potent mix of vitamins and minerals that give great elasticity and shine to your curls.
Oranges are a great source of Vitamin C and biofalvonoids which stimulate circulation and in turn stimulate your scalp which helps with hair growth.
Cinnamon is a spice that not only gives your smoothie a little kick, it also has been said that cinnamon prevents hair loss by increasing blood flow.
Pineapple is loaded with healthy enzymes, vitamin C, and are nutrient dense- providing your body with the building blocks needed to repair body tissues after stress and make those curls gorgeous. It also contains bromelain that helps your body retain moisture levels. Bromelain can help your mane stay quenched longer, giving your curls a super-boost of hydration.
Lemons help curls with their acidic nature by tightening hair follicles and preventing hair fall. Lemons also boost the production of collagen.
An excellent source of protein, Soy Milk is rich in Omega 6 and Omega 3 which are essential fatty acids you should provide your body by eating a healthy diet. Soy milk also contains phyto-antioxidants which strengthen blood vessel linings and promote good circulation which in turn means that nutrient-rich blood is getting pumped to your scalp, feeding your hair follicles exactly what is needed to show off healthy, shiny curls.
