We’ve all heard the expression you are what you eat. If you are what you eat and your hair is an extension of you, your hair is what you eat too, right? This thought came about as I was thinking about how to make a homemade hair treatment. I thought about mashing some avocado with extra virgin olive oil, and then I quickly thought about how I would love to eat some guacamole, lol. So what’s more effective eating good food to promote healthy hair or applying it on the surface of the hair?
I’m not proposing that we start cooking with jojoba oil; using oils to protect our hair from the environment stress is very necessary. Seriously, though as women we spend a whole lot of money and time researching the latest product that is promised to grow our hair and is loaded with vitamins and essentials oils. And hey, there is nothing wrong with those products, I use them myself. All I’m asking is, do we invest as much time and energy in selecting what we ingest, read, watch and listen to?
When we feed our body, we feed our soul, which then affects our inner spirit. Yes, your spirit is you, all of you.
Healthy hair starts with a healthy you! Physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Be mindful of what you eat, read, watch and listen to…. be like a tree that is planted by the rivers of water that flourishes and bears good fruit!
Do you have plans to eat better this year?
I need to get back on my water game.
