The result of vitamins, minerals and the right care
Beautiful hair looks great and feels good, it is full, glossy and strong. It’s the most attractive accessory we can wear. But stress, hormonal imbalances, harmful substances and the wrong care can clog up your hair. Too few vital substances and minerals also results in deficiency symptoms. When our body is in imbalance, it is reflected in our hair. They become brittle, blunt and thin.
The right kind of care for beautiful hair
Every hair is unique. Every scalp has different requirements. Your shampoo and other hair care products should be matched perfectly to it. The wrong products can result in greasy and lacklustre hair, split ends, dandruff or your hair may even start to fall out.
Use natural products, such as those containing bees wax, aloe vera, coconut oil and precious oils such as yarrow oil, peppermint oil, salvia oil or sandalwood oil.Avoid products containing alcohol because these dry out the hair a lot. You should also avoidsilicones, synthetic fragrances, colouring and preservatives, mineral oils and parabens.
Wash, cut, comb
The more the better? The opposite is true:don't stress your hair and more importantly your scalp by washing it too often and too much grooming. Don't wash your hair every day, but every two or three days. Always comb your hair very carefully and never when it is still wet. Dry your hair a little before detangling it with a wide-toothed comb or brush.Natural hair brushes are particularly gentle.
A good cut makes your hair look better in an instant.It falls better and has more volume. Have your ends cut on a regular basis, say every 12 weeks to say goodbye to thin and split ends.
The stressless way to beautiful hair
Our hair is a mirror of our soul. If you are emotionally out of balance, you may experience problems with your hair and it may even fall out. Are you frequently tired, stressed or overworked? Then take a deep breath and relax. Treat yourself to regular short periods of me-time, read a good book or relax with some gentle sport, such as yoga, Pilates or walking.
Beautiful hair keeps away from heat
Hair doesn’t like the heat. Hot air from hairdryers, washing your hair with hot water or scorching summer sun put a lot of stress on your hair: It dries out, becomes blunt and brittle.Lukewarm water is better for the hair. Set your hairdryer to a cooler setting and protect your hair from excessive sunlight.
Beautiful hair from the inside
Have you heard that eating almonds helps to make your hair glossy? And dried dates help prevent hair loss and split ends? Yes, it’s true. A balanced diet containing vitamin-rich fruit and vegetables and healthy fats and proteins gives your hair all the important vitamins (A, B, C, E), minerals it needs and the trace element zinc. Eat your way to great hair.
Glossy hair loves biotin
Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, promotes beautiful hair. Amongst other things, it is key to the essential metabolic processes in the hair roots. The most important sources of biotin are nuts, rolled oats, eggs, wheat brain, soya beans, lentils and mushrooms.

This combination promotes normal hair – as well as normal nails and skin. The vegan tablets can be taken continually for a year and are free from gluten, lactose and other allergens.

Beard and hair growth for men
What can men do when their hair starts to gradually grey and their beard growth slows down? Unfortunately, there are no effective treatments to counter gaps in your beard or hair caused by genetics, even as you start to go bald with age. But there is some good news:you can encourage hair growth if suffering from many other kinds of hair loss. High-dosage zinc treatments are very effective. Protein-rich foods such as fish and soya beams also promote the growth of hair on your head and chin.
