A question we are often asked is ‘Will taking Ingenious Beauty help my hair as well as my skin?’
Whether your hair is straight, curly, wavy, thick, blonde, black or brown is determined by our parents; but the health and condition depend on more than the genetics we are born with. Did you know that your hair is one of the barometers of your overall health?
As we age, our bodies experience decreased collagen production and become less proficient at replenishing our dermal cells; this weakens our skin and shrinks our follicles. Along with menopause and other lifestyle factors, this may be the reason our hair grows thinner over time.
Put simply, hair is primarily made up of the protein keratin and your body uses several amino acids to build keratin, some of which can be found in collagen. Collagen plays a significant role in maintaining follicle function, even though only a tiny amount of collagen is located in the outer layers of your hair shaft.
As our bodies create more collagen, the layers regenerate and this supports our hair follicles re-entering the growth phase, maintaining the ongoing hair growth cycle. The middle layer of skin called the dermis contains each of your hairs’ roots and is made up of 70% collagen. In particular, collagen contributes to the strength and elasticity of your dermis.
Because of this, making sure you provide your body with plenty of protected collagen may help you nurture a healthy dermis and fend off hair thinning. Since hair develops in the skin, taking Ingenious Beauty can contribute to the prevention of dermal ageing and decreased thinning whilst improving hair growth.
Here are our recommended healthy hair habits:
- Eat a healthy, balanced diet consisting of daily portions of protein and dark-skinned fruits and vegetables.
- Don’t over-wash your hair, aim for up to three times a week
- Massage your scalp whilst shampooing to stimulate blood circulation
- Try and limit stress as much as possible
