Admit it…You spend hours every week on your hair, pinning it up, pulling it back, twisting teasing braiding straightening curling and styling! Hair is after all the consummate fashion statement, an accessory you wear every day that reflects your personality and sense of style.
But devoting so much attention to your hair can take its toll. Contaminated tap water, harsh shampoo, goopy styling products and heat from styling tools can damage hair to the point where nothing you do makes it look good. It may be time for a little hair TLC.
Strategies for Healthy Shiny Hair
If your hair is dull and lifeless from too much “care,” there are a number of things you can do to turn your drab do back into your crowning glory:
- Use an organic, non-detergent shampoo
- Have a messy bun week once a month to take a break from washing and styling
- Give your hair an organic deep conditioning mask
- Let your hair air dry naturally when possible
- Stay away from cheap drugstore products full of harsh chemicals
Micronutrients and Hair Health
Healthy hair grows from within, and sometimes no amount of topical treatments with expensive products is enough to repair truly damaged hair. Hair that is easily damaged may be structurally weak, lacking the nutrients necessary for optimal health.
Micronutrients are substances like vitamins, minerals and amino acids that you normally need in small amounts for your body to perform at its peak. However, stress, poor nutrition, dehydration, environmental toxins and other lifestyle factors can rob you of essential nutrients, affecting your mood, immune system, brain function and health. Nutritional deficiency is especially punishing to your hair, skin and nails, features you rely on to look and feel beautiful.
Micronutrients essential to healthy hair include:
- Omega-3 fatty acids
- The full spectrum of B vitamins
- Folic acid
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
- Amino acids
Collagen, the most abundant protein in your skin, hair, and nails, is supported by amino acids. Vitamin C helps protect hair against damage caused by free radicals, which can make it brittle.
Micronutrient IV Therapy for Beautiful Hair
If your hair is dull, lifeless and damaged, there is a good chance you are nutrient deficient. Even if you take vitamin supplements, pills and capsules often don’t break down completely in your digestive tract, and may pass through without being absorbed.
Micronutrient IV cocktails are designed to replenish depleted nutrients quickly by infusing high doses of quality micronutrients directly into your bloodstream. IV therapy bypasses your digestive system, so nutrients are carried directly to your cells where they begin supporting cellular repair.
Regular micronutrient treatments will not only improve the appearance of your hair, skin and nails, but they will repair and replenish your vital organs as well, making you feel energetic and healthy, and boosting your mood.
