Beautiful Hair In No Time


Your Hairs are the mirror of your health. Therefore, if the luster and density of the hair are diminishing, it indicates a physical or mental imbalance.


Whether dandruff, split ends, hair loss, brittle hair, or lack of shine. In any case, it is important first to investigate the causes of the respective hair problem to act against it and to heed the appropriate tips.


The most common causes of hair ailments include iron deficiency, stress, hormonal imbalances, thyroid disorders, malnutrition, air pollutants, frequent hair washing, aggressive shampoos, perms, hair dyes, etc.


If one suspects one of these causes, she should concentrate on the remedy of the underlying cause.


However, the cause of hair problems is not easy to determine and, therefore, not easy to get rid of.


Hair Problems Often Arrive With A Time Delay.


For example, regular hair loss occurs many weeks later. It means that the possible cause of the hair fall occurred several months ago.


How Is It Possible?


Hairs are known to go through different phases. In the so-called Anagen phase, hair would happily stay on the scalp for a few years, nourished by the hair root. At the end of its natural lifetime, it enters the Telogen phase.


The hair root separates from the hair at the beginning of this phase. The hair is no longer taken care of but remains on the head for about three more months before it finally falls.


Suppose the factor that promotes hair loss (hormonal dysfunction, lack of vital substances, etc.) occurs. In that case, unusually, many hairs change from the anagen phase to the telogen phase, including those that are still quite young and still upside down for years under normal (healthy) circumstances would have remained.


However, all these hairs remain on the head for the obligatory three months of the telogen phase and consequently don't fall until many weeks after the interference factor comes in.


But who knows, in the middle of the worst hair loss occurrence, what happened three months ago or what might have happened three months ago?


Hardly anyone.


12 Tips For Beautiful Hair


However, if you implement the following tips, you can rectify many possible causes in a prophylactic manner - without knowing them.


It is not only about possible causes of hair loss but also for other hair problems, such as dull or brittle hair, fast-greasy hair, dandruff, or even very thin hair.


Tip 1: Go For Vitamin A For Strong Hair


The fat-soluble vitamin A or Retinol ensures the hairs become strong and supple. It boosts hair growth and benefits fat synthesis in the follicles.


Vitamin A is found in organic eggs. However, the precursor of vitamin A - beta-carotene - is found in many vegetables and fruits, such as kale, spinach, cantaloupe, carrots, peppers, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, etc.


If you do not have time to prepare vegetables and salads, try using a high-carotene powder, such as Nettle leaf powder, parsley leaf powder, spinach powder, broccoli powder, grass powder (e.g., barley grass), or a green superfood mixture.


Mix the green powder in a glass of carrot juice that will provide additional beta-carotene.


Tip 2: Vitamins Of The B-Complex Strengthen The Hair


The vitamin B complex also supports the beauty of the hair. Overall, these vitamins stimulate the activity of the sebaceous glands as well as essential metabolic processes in the hair roots. They also prevent inflammation and ensure a healthy scalp.


Biotin, or Vitamin B7 or Vitamin H, is particularly effective for thin, brittle, and dull hair and works against hair loss.


The most important food sources of vitamin B include nuts, whole grains, legumes, and oilseeds (e.g., pumpkin or chia seeds).


Biotin can also be found in yeast flakes, egg yolks, soybeans, oatmeal, walnuts, and mushrooms.


If you are not sure whether your diet contains enough B vitamins, you can go for vitamin B complex supplements until you have changed your diet so that it also has enough vitamin B-rich food.



Tip 3: Vitamin C Boosts Hair Health


Vitamin C is water-soluble and is referred to as a universal vitamin. It contributes a lot to the health of the hair.


Vitamin C, for example, supports iron binding to the red blood cells, and the hair roots are better supplied with iron and oxygen.


Vitamin C can be found in most citrus fruits and paprika or broccoli.


The South American Camu Camu fruit even contains a record amount of vitamin C, about 30 to 50 times as much as oranges. Moreover, Acerola powder and sea buckthorn juice are also excellent sources of vitamin C.


Tip 4: Iron Prevents Hair Loss


Iron is essential for healthy hair growth. The trace element ensures the transport of oxygen in the blood, the energy supply of the cells, and the production of various proteins.


Iron is found in green leafy vegetables (e.g., spinach, chard, or kale), in dried fruits (dried fruit such as apricots or dates), and berries (e.g., Goji berries, black and red currants or raspberries).


The goji berries can be optimally incorporated as a dietary supplement. As little as 50 grams produce about 6 mg of iron, enough to cover half of the male daily iron needs. (Women need a little more iron, especially during pregnancy).


Tip 5: Copper Gives The Hair Power


Copper improves hair structure. The trace element facilitates iron absorption from the diet and builds skin, bones, and hair.


Whole grains, sunflower seeds, legumes (especially chickpeas and soy), nuts, and cocoa products are good natural copper suppliers.


An adult's daily requirement is 1.0 to 1.5 mg and can already be covered with 50 g of cashew nuts or 40 g of chickpeas (e.g., hummus).


Tip 6: Zinc Promotes Hair Growth


Zinc is an excellent mineral to support hair growth. It activates numerous enzymes, from which the skin, the hair, and the fingernails benefit.


Zinc protects the hair roots against inflammation and keeps the scalp healthy. Shrimp, nuts, corn, and eggs are especially zinc-rich.


Front-runners in zinc are pumpkin seeds, poppy seeds, and linseed. The daily requirement is 7 to 10 mg, achieved with 100 g of pumpkin seeds. However, since you still eat other zinc-containing foods, a daily handful of a seed mixture is enough to bring the zinc balance to fruition.


However, you can use a zinc supplement to fill the deficiency if there is a shortcoming.


Tip 7: Silicon Improves Hair Quality


Silicon is an important building substance for hair, nails, and connective tissue and, therefore, can be regarded as a traditional, healing remedy to give brittle hair new momentum.


Organic silicon is also of great importance for the development and stabilization of bones and connective tissue. The mineralization process is sustainably supported in the entire supporting apparatus.


Millet, oats, and barley are good sources of silicon. Silicon-rich herbs help you increase silicon uptake.


The bamboo takes a special place in this context. It has more than 70 percent of a very high proportion of silicon. Apart from that, Horsetail and stinging nettle are good silicon sources.


Suppose there is a suspicion of silicon deficiency (which is usually the case with unsightly hair). In that case, you should also take a high-quality silicon supplement (which delivers approximately 70 mg of silicon per day) because the silicon requirement is difficult to achieve in today's normal diet.


Tip 8: Meat Consumption & Hair Problems


Meat, sausages, or fat cheese shouldn't be consumed in large portions. Japanese researchers have found that hair loss can be associated with increased sebum production.


Since animal fats contribute directly to the increased production of sebum, frequent consumption of the mentioned foods can favor hair problems.


Those who consume excessive amounts of animal fats may risk not only cardiovascular disease and obesity but also a greasy scalp and hair loss.


Tip 9: Saw Palmetto and Hair Loss


The fruits of Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens) are sometimes used to treat hair loss. A study by the journal "The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine" has shown that the daily intake of fruits of saw palmetto can positively affect hair growth.


The fruits of the saw palmetto inhibit Dihydrotestosterone, a derivative of the hormone testosterone, which makes the hair thin. The saw palmetto is available in dietary supplements (e.g., prostate forte), positively affecting women's hair, prostate, bladder, and urinary tract.


Tip 10: Msm Stimulates Hair Growth


Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) - known as Dimethylsulfone - supports keratin production and thus strengthens the hair follicles.


MSM is an organic sulfur compound crucial for the body's sulfur balance. Sulfur is essential to the immune system, connective tissue, skin, and hair.


Keratins are water-insoluble fiber proteins and the main constituent of hairs, fingers, and toenails. The body needs to make keratin to keep the hair strong and healthy. For this, it needs organic sulfur.


In one study, administering MSM to all participants showed reduced hair loss and stimulated hair growth within just six weeks. You can take MSM in the form of tablets or capsules.


Tip 11: Medicinal Plants For Beautiful And Healthy Hair


There are many medicinal plants and herbs, like nettle, nasturtium, ginger, or rosemary, that you can use to promote health and, thus, the beauty of your hair.


It can be massaged onto the scalp as a tincture, or you can prepare a tea, which you can drink or use as a natural hair conditioner.


For example, a hair conditioner with chamomile tea is a proven home remedy for treating greasy hair.


The chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) is characterized by calming properties. The medicinal plant can also develop this effect when applied to the scalp, as it reduces sebum production in the sebaceous glands.


The chamomile tea conditioner should be used once a week for maximum results.


Preparation Method:


Heat about one liter of water and leave four bags of chamomile tea in it for 10 minutes. After the tea has cooled down, you can use it after the hair washes as a rinse.


It is also possible to make shampoos and other hair care products yourself. Just give it a try!


Tip 12: Vitamin Oil Pack For Damaged Hair


If your hair is strained due to external influences (e.g., cosmetics) and has lost its shine, the following vitamin oil pack can breathe new life into it.


The ingredients, such as biotin, pro-vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin K, vitamin C, and folic acid, regenerate the scalp and bring the shine back.




  • 1 tbsp rosehip kernel oil


  • One organic egg yolk


  • ½ banana


  • 1 tsp carotene oil (a sunflower or soybean oil with carotene or carrot extract)


  • Five drops of lemon essential oil


Preparation & Application:


Mesh bananas with the fork and stir with the remaining ingredients. Then, apply the mixture to dry hair and wrap your head with foil. Let the hair mask do its job for 1-2 hours, and then wash your hair with a mild shampoo.


The vitamin oil pack should always be applied before shampooing. You can double the number of ingredients if you have very long hair.


Apart from the rosehip kernel oil or carotene oil mentioned in the recipe, you can use many other valuable oils for an oil pack, such as olive, coconut, or argan oil.
