The story of bamboo and the secret to hair sheen

The story of bamboo and the secret to hair sheen

Want long, strong, healthy, and beautiful hair? The answer may lie in the world’s fastest-growing plant. That’s right, bamboo not only can grow remarkably on its own, with some species of bamboo growing up to 36 inches in a day, but it can also help your hair grow faster, longer and stronger, too.

So, what is it about bamboo that makes it grow so quickly and keeps it strong and healthy? It’s silica, sometimes called silicon. Yep, the same stuff that you find in little packets in pockets of clothing, shoes, food, and other products. It’s more than just a way to absorb moisture. Silica has numerous health benefits.

Benefits of silica

Silica is frequently used as a supplement to treat osteoporosis, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, digestive issues, and hair loss, and nail health. 

Not all of these uses are agreed upon by scientists as effective, but what does get a lot of attention is how silica can benefit your hair, skin, and nails

♦ Silica is a key ingredient in collagen, one of the most important proteins in your body. Adding silica to your daily routine encourages collagen production, which improves skin strength and elasticity.

♦ Hair with higher silica content is brighter and falls out less frequently.

♦ Silica is important in the composition of nails and gives them strength, which is needed to ward off infections and grow healthier.

♦ Silica is a natural anti-inflammatory, which is not only great for people that suffer from eczema or psoriasis, but it’s also a boon for your scalp and follicular health.

♦ It supports healthy levels of calcium and magnesium in your body, which helps keep hormone levels balanced. 

Silica is an important element in your body, and unfortunately, it’s slowly depleted as we age. The science is in, and it’s an important element that you can get from bamboo, but it’s not the only way bamboo can help boost your health and appearance. 

More benefits of bamboo

While the abundance of silica in bamboo makes it an excellent choice for your health and beauty regimen, there’s more. Bamboo benefits your hair and nails in other ways, too.

♦ Bamboo is great at cleaning your hair and scalp while adding a natural sheen.

♦ Bamboo supports glycosaminoglycans, which are important for moisture retention and strength.

♦ Bamboo has antioxidant properties, meaning it can ward off those dangerous free radicals.

♦ Bamboo shoots are high in protein, essential amino acids, and semi-essential amino acids, which build strength and prevent breakage.

How to make the most of bamboo

It’s because of all of these wonderful properties of bamboo that Hair La Vie harnesses its power and uses it in many of our all-natural products. This means you have a variety of different ways to add bamboo to your beauty routine, and you can even stack them together for greater results.

Clinical Formula Hair Vitamins

This daily vitamin dramatically transforms your hair from the inside out with a focus on nutrition. Included in the ingredients are bamboo stem and leaves for internal strength and shine that not only helps your hair, skin, and nails but can provide other organs and bones with health benefits.

Revitalizing Blend Hair Vitamins

Do you need to focus on repairing damaged, stressed, thinning, and all-around unhealthy hair before you can turn your attention on improving what you have? If that’s the case, then these vitamins are for you. Follicles are the focus here with ingredients like bamboo that fuel them the right way.

Hair La Vie Mask

Want to add deep moisture to your hair, then a mask is a way to go. Sit and let the incredible ingredients do their job, adding moisture and nutrients that help to create lush, plump strands, and a healthy scalp. Bamboo extract also supports luster and elasticity created by added moisture.

Final thoughts

Don’t overlook bamboo when you’re trying to come up with a healthy hair regimen. This quick-growing plant brings more than lucky, and it’s also a renewable resource. It’s loaded with silica that has some pretty remarkable health benefits. 

While you may reap the rewards from bamboo throughout your body, your primary goal is having the best hair of your life–and bamboo delivers. Bamboo can add strength, shine, luster, and moisture to your strands while also supporting the health of the follicle and scalp. This means that bamboo will help your hair grow longer, faster, and stronger. 

Hair La Vie puts careful and thorough research into all of the ingredients in its products. If you want to add bamboo to your haircare approach, selecting all-natural, top-quality Hair La Vie products is a proven and safe place to start.
