Spaghetti is a traditional meal where people gather around the table and enjoy the flavors of family recipes. The aroma of the spices and herbs brings everyone together for a wonderful meal. When you pair spaghetti with raw cucumbers and pesto you have a recipe for healthy hair. The ingredients for this type of spaghetti nourish your tresses and rejuvenate your hair follicles.
Ingredients and Recipe
- 3-4 cucumbers
- 1 ripe avocado
- 3-4 cloves of garlic
- 50 grams (1/4 cup) of pine nuts
- Juice from ½ a lemon
- 1 bunch fresh basil
- ½ teaspoon (2.5 grams) of Himalayan salt
Soak the pine nuts overnight or for six hours. Cucumber spaghetti is made using this wonderful vegetable slicer. Then process all of the other ingredients in a blender. Use only the basil leaves. You can also use the remaining parts from when you made the cucumber spaghetti. Wait until the end to add the pepper. It is not necessary to add extra liquid while you are processing the ingredients. I recommend using a classic chopper instead of the usual blender. I recommend this blender model. Put the cucumber pesto over the raw cucumber pasta, add pepper, and stir to blend well.

Vitamin D enhances stem cells and helps them to maintain the capability to produce hair. By enhancing stem cells, vitamin D can lead to the reactivation of hair follicles. Vitamin A helps to produce healthy sebum, an oil known to keep hair from drying out and breaking off.
Benefits of Garlic
Garlic has a high amount of allicin, a sulfur compound, with numerous healing effects for you locks. Sulfur is known to treat hair loss and allicin is a main foundation to encouraging hair growth. Allicin enhances the circulation of blood in your scalp leading to an increase in hair production.
The sulfur in garlic reduces the amount of dandruff that accumulates over time and lessens the chances of it coming back. The anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties of garlic also treat scalp conditions.
Benefits of Pine Nuts
Pine nuts are a great source to add to your diet to prevent hair thinning and loss. Pine nuts contain a high amount of vitamin E, which gives your tresses a natural boost of energy to grow. Vitamin E also treats various scalp conditions. A high concentration of protein is in pine nuts to help prevent damaged hair.
Benefits of Lemon Juice
For many decades, lemons have been an excellent source of caring for your tresses. Lemon juice has a high amount of vitamin C known to promote voluminous, strong, and healthy hair. Long, thick hair starts to grow again as you enjoy the nourishing effects of lemon juice. Preventing dandruff and removing flakes from your scalp is also a plus as you add this liquid to an already delicious meal.
Magnesium is in lemon juice as well and its job is to produce healthy hair follicles and keep hair strands intact for longer lengths of time. Another important part of lemon juice is the calcium, which encourages strong hair follicles as well as increased growth of your locks.
Other nutrients and minerals in lemon juice are vitamin B, phosphorus, and folic acid combining to sustain nourishment to your tresses.

One of the best herbs that you can have in your house is basil packed with many ways of treating hair ailments. The nutrients and minerals in basil contain miraculous healing to restore a glow to your tresses. Basil contains vitamins A, C, and E all of which work together to grow out your hair.
Calcium, copper, manganese, zinc, iron, and potassium are all in basil. Copper is responsible for maintaining your natural hair color and keeping it shiny. A zinc deficiency can actually cause the protein structure of hair follicles to deteriorate. Hair loss or shedding then occurs. Zinc works to restore healthy hair growth to your beautiful tresses. Low iron in your diet increases the rate of hair fall. By adding iron to your diet, the texture of your hair improves and a natural glow is restored.
