A Fast and Simple Blueberry Kale Smoothie for Beautiful Hair

A Fast and Simple Blueberry Kale Smoothie for Beautiful Hair

Hair with the right body, the right shine, and absolutely no frizz or dryness is what we all want. There are hundreds of shampoos and hair care products assuring you that you too can have that hair, and yet it remains elusive.

If you struggle with frizz, split ends, oily hair, dandruff, or any other hair ailment, then nature has a solution for you. Yes, the beauty products can help, but you can get to the root of any problem by looking at your diet.

Most health problems can be solved or prevented by following a natural and balanced diet, and your hair problems can be solved in the same manner. Consider adding a Healthy Hair smoothie to your daily routine.

Why a Smoothie?

Your health and your hair can benefit from antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Because your hair is made of natural proteins, the more natural you eat, the more nutrients are available to care for your hair.

Most hair treatments result in the accumulation of chemicals, which undoes any of the benefits they may have initially provided. When you opt for more natural hair therapy, the only result you get is healthy hair.

If you are like most women, you find that hair care can be time consuming. There is not always time for these masks and treatments. Plus, the help they provide is usually superficial.

Making a smoothie every morning is easy, and you can take it on the go. You don’t have to sit and wait for the treatment to kick in because a healthy hair smoothie gets to work while you do too. It is like breakfast and hair therapy all-in-one.

Healthy Hair Smoothie

The best part about smoothies is that you can add whatever ingredients you want. When it comes to healthy hair smoothies, there are a few ingredients that are essential because of the particular benefits they will have for your hair (and your overall health too).

Benefits of Berries: Berries of all kinds are packed full of vitamins and antioxidants, which help to neutralize toxins that cause oxidative damage. Oxidative damage is the number one cause of hair cell death and premature aging.

Eating berries everyday protects your hair and promotes strength from within.

Nuts and Seeds: These ingredients are rich in proteins which help your hair cells to regenerate. They are also full of essential minerals like calcium and magnesium which are important for hair growth. These minerals help regulate hormone production, which impacts hair growth and hair loss.

Nuts are also one of the best food sources we have for the omega-3 fatty acids that give your hair natural shine while keeping both scalp and hair moisturized.

Dark Leafy Greens: All leafy greens provide the same benefits. When it comes to smoothies, though, kale and spinach seem to be the most popular. Full of carotenoids and folate, leafy greens help to protect your hair and promote growth.

Greens also contain rich amounts of calcium, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids, all of which boost hair strength, shine, and health.

Bananas: Bananas are mostly known for their potassium content and muscle support, but they are also beneficial for your hair and scalp. The natural oils and potassium provide a protective coat for your hair, locking moisture in and preventing breakage.

Bananas add shine to your hair and when massaged directly into your scalp promote moisture and prevent dandruff.

How to Make Your Smoothie

To get a delicious smoothie and the healthiest hair, simply blend the ingredients below until creamy, and drink right away. With a smoothie like this every day, your hair will look as great as you feel.

Ingredients:

1 cup fresh or frozen mixed berries (you can use any berries you want)

1 & 1/2 cup unsweetened silk cashew milk

1 ripe banana

3-4 kale leaves, fresh or frozen

1 handful walnuts
