Long hair don’t care? Not if you don’t eat enough protein!
Outside of everything you buy and put in your hair, you’re losing out if you don’t watch what you put into your body. The key to great hair isn’t just about what you wash or condition it with but it starts with what you do and don’t eat.
The main ingredient to great hair is protein. Let me start by saying that hair is made of protein and therefore, you’ll need it the same way your body is made of water and needs water. When you don’t eat enough protein, the body will start to reserve and ration out the protein it has which causes slow to no hair growth. Without hair growth, the hairs on your head become so dry there’s nothing you can do to restore moisture and then, you guessed it, your hair breaks off and falls out. Now it’s a known fact that we shed 50-100 hairs per day but if you know you haven’t eaten enough protein over the past couple of months, you start to see way more hair shedding than usual.
Now that you know what could cause hair loss, you want to know what to do to avoid it or fix it right?
Did you also know that I would tell you how? Of course you did!
For starters, you’re going to need about 46 to 56 grams of protein each day and there’s no way for me to tell you how much that is if I don’t know what type of protein you’re eating so I have a little chart to help us out with my top 5 Protein Quick-Picks:
So, before you run to the dermatologist or pick up the next bottle of mega-growth hair serum, try picking up some of these items in my list to adjust your protein intake. You’ll see a big difference in hair growth and texture that you’ll love to flaunt no matter the length. Stay tuned for more tips and trick for natural hair right here at www.TonitaSmith.com.
