Since I posted this photo online:
Everyone has been asking, “OMG, your hair is so long, what is your secret?! I wish my hair grew like that!”
The truth is, for the LONGEST time, my hair was falling out and wouldn’t grow at all. After you give birth, that “luscious hair” you’re suppose to get during pregnancy (I got none of it) actually falls out. I read some where that it’s really dead hair that your follicles hold on to while pregnant, thus giving you the illusion that your hair is thick and shiny (this could be totally off base though).
So, what really helped my hair grow and made my body give up the need to shed like a german shepherd in the summer??
KETO DIET AND COLLAGEN.
When you become fat adapted, your hair grows. Because you are taking in more essential healthy fats, your hair follicles become healthier, your body is more energized and your hair grows.
Have you ever done a really low fat diet and your hair became brittle and dry? It’s because your body was lacking the nutrients it needs.
Aside from eating more fat, I noticed a HUGE difference in my hair once I started supplementing with Neocell Marine Collagen. Within a few days, I noticed my hair was softer, shinier and eventually, I noticed it really starting to grow!
I use marine collagen because it has a higher amount of glycine in it. This promotes not only a youthful appearance, but also cognitive and digestive health. The extra shine to my hair was just the sprinkles on the cupcake! Collagen also promotes healthy joints and muscles.
I recommend it to all of my family, friends and clients!
Lately, I have been using 1 scoop of Vital Proteins Marine Collagen Peptides in my lemon water every day. It’s a great option if you would rather mix it in instead of swallow pills. It also has a higher amount of protein in it than the Neocell version. Vital Proteins also has to-go packs which are awesome for traveling!
So there you have it, my secrets to healthier hair: higher intake of healthy fats and collagen!
