6 ‘Juices and Berries’ For Healthier Hair

Go ahead and say it: “There are no chemicals. That is just juices and berries.”  That’s the familiar line from the iconic film “Coming To America” starring Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall.  In the scene Eddie’s character Prince Akeem claimed that he only put juices and berries to keep his hair healthy.  As it turns out there are some juices and berries that are great for your hair. See below:

1. Carrot Juice

Turns out carrots are not just for Bugs Bunny, it is an excellent nutritional health drink, which is rich in beta-carotene that gives your hair a beautiful shine and colour, restoring and strengthening the structure of hair follicles. It is also a good source of vitamin C, which helps in increasing blood flow to the scalp thereby aiding in hair growth. All you need to do is start your day with a glass of carrot juice – it’s healthy and will appeal to your taste buds as well.

2. Onion Juice

This is a proven fact that onion juice is known to give positive results in treating hair problems, as it works as a stimulant in the growth of hair by increasing the blood circulation in the scalp. Apart from this, onion juice is also known for its antiseptic properties that keep the scalp clean. You can apply onion juice on your scalp, directly. Though very strong and pungent in odour, onions can also be used alongside rosewater on your scalp, which has to be later washed off after about an hour with a mild shampoo.


3. Garlic Juice

The idea of using garlic juice for hair loss is almost as old as the existence of the world. Garlic, just like onion, is a natural hair stimulant that provides nourishment to the hair follicles and increases the blood circulation in scalp. Therefore, applying fresh garlic juice topically on your scalp is definitely one of the best natural solutions for effective hair care and hair re-growth, along with a healthy balanced diet, consuming lots of leafy green vegetables and beans, as well as using only high quality hair care product.
