Hair and Nails
Regular blow-drying, curling, straightening, crimping, backcombing and colouring can take their toll on the look and feel of our hair and what we eat, together with our lifestyle, shines though our hair - or not - if we do not feed our hair with the right amount of nutrients in our diet. Diet plays a huge part in the health and vitality of our hair which is where Essential Fatty Acids come in.
Essential Fatty Acids, Omega 3 and 6, are generally lacking in our modern western diets but are essential because the body cannot produce them itself. Getting enough of these in the right ratio is important for the proper functioning of the cells in our hair and on our scalp. When we get these Omega Oils they allow the cells to retain moisture, protecting the hair from drying out which is so important for that natural shiny finish.
Essential Fatty Acids are also associated with encouraging normal hair growth as they help the cells within the folicles work at their best.
Dandruff can also be a thing of the past. As dandruff is simply dry skin flaking off, Essential Fatty Acids that help skin retain moisture, help reduce the incidence of dandruff. So having an optimum intake of Essential Fatty Acids Omega 3 and 6 in your diet can lead to shiny, lustrous, healthy looking hair and a dandruff free, moisturised scalp.
Nail strength and growth are also encouraged by an adequate amount of Essential Fatty Acids Omega 3 and 6. A lack of these nutrients can show up in brittle nails and many hair stylists find the constant exposure to water and hair products can weaken their nails. When they increase their intake of essential fats they often find that their nails recover and strengthen.
Top celebrity stylists like Michael Ashton (www.michaelashton.co.nz) and Adam Reed (www.percyandreed.com) recommend a daily intake of Udo's Choice Ultimate Oil Blend to bring out the best in your hair.
