Benefits of Ingredients for Hair
Not only will this soup brighten your mood throughout the day, it can also have healing wonders for your hair. The nutrients and minerals in this blend of tomato soup provide your hair with essential natural remedies.
Benefits of Raw Cashew Nuts
Inside cashews are a plethora of minerals and nutrients that help your tresses grow to their full potential. One of the main components of cashews is copper. Tyrosinase, a copper-containing enzyme, converts tyrosine to melanin, the pigment that provides hair with its natural color. Copper is needed for the enzymes to function.
Cashews are also an excellent source of iron, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, and selenium. An iron deficiency can increase hair fall. Shine and texture of your lovely locks are improved as you add more iron to your diet.
Phosphorus, zinc, and selenium all aid in promoting healthy hair growth. Magnesium is needed to help hair follicles stay strong to ensure strands of your tresses are intact for long periods of time.
Benefits of Tomatoes
Tomatoes provide you with 20 percent of the daily vitamin intake that is recommended to maintain good health. A high count of vitamins A, B, E, and C are in tomatoes which have wonderful effects for your tresses.
Vitamin A keeps your hair from drying out by producing healthy sebum, an oil secreted by your scalp. Vitamin B helps to strengthen and condition your locks. By increasing oxygen uptake, vitamin E stimulates blood circulation therefore promoting hair growth.
The amount of vitamin C in tomatoes prevents dandruff and provides collagen to aid in the proper development of tissues in your scalp. Dandruff, itchiness, and other scalp conditions can be treated naturally with vitamin C.
Benefits of Basil
One of the best home ingredients that can be used to treat hair for a variety of ailments is basil, packed with several key nutrients and minerals. Within this herb are amazing healing wonders for different aspects of your beautiful locks. Basil contains vitamins A, C, and E, all of which increase the production of hair.
The minerals in basil include calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, and zinc. Calcium and potassium both aid in promoting strong, long locks of hair. A deficiency in manganese can lead to dry, damaged hair.
Benefits of Garlic
Garlic has a high level of allicin, a sulfur compound, that effectively treats hair loss. Allicin increases blood circulation in the scalp leading to an increase in hair growth. The sulfur in garlic reduces how severe dandruff can become and lessens the chances of it coming back. Anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties help to treat dandruff and itchy scalp conditions.
Benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Inside olive oil are vitamins A, E, and antioxidants that restore your hair to its natural beauty and shine. Hair becomes soft to the touch and you begin to have a healthy head of tresses. Monounsaturated fatty acids in olive oil strengthen your locks at the roots extending to the tips of your hair. Anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties contained in olive oil prevent scalp conditions such as dandruff, itchiness, dryness, and head lice.
