Growing Black Hair To Great Lengths: Inexperienced Smoothies
Green smoothies – Healthy hair from the inside out.
The inexperienced smoothie mania is upon us. Every the place I go I can’t seem to escape it. My instagram timeline is flooded with photographs of mysterious looking smoothies of varying tints and shades of inexperienced captioned ‘breakfast smoothie”, “brunch smoothie”, “publish workout smoothie”. On the gym, the same mysterious liquid appears to be peeking out of everybody’s gym bag. As an equal opportunity health fad experimenter, I decided to get on the bandwagon already.
So I started searching for recipes. First off, you have to select your greens: ugwu, bitterleaf (if you’ll be able to stand it), kale, spinach.. basically any leafy inexperienced vegetable will do. Then you can add some fruit: apples, pineapples, bananas, mangoes.. healthy additions to improve the taste because let’s face it, who desires to drink blended spinach Then there are the super foods, and this is the place the fun (or confusion depending on how you have a look at it) begins. Superfoods are foods of very high nutritious value, helpful to health and properly being while having little or no damaging properties. There’s maca powder, goji berries, chia seeds, msm, blueberries, cacao powder and so forth. The checklist goes on and figuring out which of them to put in your smoothie may be headache inducing. Your finest wager is to resolve what your goal is: it may be to slow down/reverse signs of aging, forestall or cure heart illness/diabetes/excessive blood pressure, improve your pores and skin/hair/nails, aid weight reduction and so forth. Once you have decided, choose the corresponding superfoods. I went with chia seeds (good source of fibre and calcium), msm powder (for pores and skin, hair and nails), camu camu powder (vit c, helps with absorption of msm) and blueberries (antioxidants). So all in all, my recipe was:
– A handful of Kale
– A handful of spinach
– 1 apple
– 1 heaped table spoon of Chia seeds
– A handful of Blueberries
– 1/2 teaspoon MSM Powder
– 1/2 teaspoon Camu camu powder
I got the sprouted chia seed powder from the health food retailer but you will get them online for much less

I put all of them in the blender, threw in some ice cubes and blended for a few minutes. It didn’t taste almost as dangerous as I expected. I’ve had one everyday since (with minor adjustments to the recipe: I’ve used almond milk, plain yoghurt and bananas).
It has been about a month since I began and i really feel energetic, my pores and skin is glowy (is that a word ), I have lost some weight (I won’t give all the credit to the green smoothies as I have also been working ooout! but it surely is certainly a contributing issue). I haven’t seen any advantages to my hair but but then, it does takes about 3 months for the effect of your food plan to show up in your hair so it’s too early to inform. However, glowy skin, more energy and weight loss are definitely adequate reasons to get my green smoothie on. Plus, anything that is good for the skin will more often than not be good for the hair (and nails).
