Divi believes in laying a solid foundation for your hair to thrive through clean scalp health products and healthy routines. If your scalp is suffering, your hair will be too. Part of your scalp self-care routine comes down to what you’re putting in your body. There are plenty of healthy options out there, but these are a few of our favorite scalp superstars and the scalp problems they may help alleviate.
Scalp Problem #1: Hair Loss Prevention and Hair Growth Support
Solution: Eggs. Eggs are a great source of protein and biotin, both of which are essential for healthy hair growth. The best part about eggs is how easy they are to integrate into your diet. Swap the cereal for a couple of eggs in the morning, or make Cobb Salad for lunch or dinner.
Scalp Problem #2: Inflammation
Solution: Fish. Salmon is an easy, healthy, and relatively accessible way to up your Omega 3 intake. Omega 3 fatty acids are often recommended to promote hair growth, but they also have anti-inflammatory properties. Salmon and many other fish selections are easy to grill or bake in the oven and are quick to make.
Scalp Problem #3: Hair Follicle Complications
Solution: Spinach. Blend it into a smoothie, make a simple salad, or add it to a sandwich. With so much versatility, spinach is one of our fave scalp superfoods. Its many nutrients support blood circulation in the scalp and nourish hair follicles. Also, the Vitamin A in spinach helps keep the scalp soft and moisturized. Remember: if your scalp isn’t healthy, your hair won’t be either!
Scalp Problem #4: Dryness
Solution: Avocado. In a wrap, in dairy-free chocolate pudding, or with just a pinch of seasoning, who doesn’t love avocado? Fortunately, your scalp can benefit from your avocado enjoyment just as much as your tastebuds! Avocados are a great source of Vitamin E. Vitamin E helps protect the scalp and hair against free radicals which can cause damage. It also has moisturizing properties to keep hair hydrated and increases blood circulation to the scalp, which is essential for hair growth. More guac please!
Whether you experience specific scalp problems or simply want stronger hair, caring for scalp health promotes a healthy environment for hair growth. When you take good care of your whole body, it will love you right back. That's why, in addition to nutrition, it’s important to create healthy habits to care for your whole self.
In addition to upping your intake of these four superfoods, take time to reduce your stress levels each and every day. Include hydration repeatedly in your daily schedule, because water is essential for your body’s day-to-day functions, including growing healthy, strong hair. Also, using clean products, like Divi’s Scalp Serum, helps create a nourishing environment for hair growth and overall wellness.
