Hair Growth

Probiotics and Hair Growth

I must be honest and say that I have been through the most when it comes to dealing with an unhealthy gut.  If my diet is not as it should be, it surely reflects and makes me miserable. I now incorporate natural ways to support my gut health and give natural relief.

Why is gut health important?

Our digestive tract plays a major role in the detoxing and immunity of the body. If your gut health is not good, other complications may arise like constipation, bloating, cramping, fatigue and decrease in mental clarity.

If there is an imbalance in the immune system of the body, this makes us vulnerable to the many toxins we come into contact with daily. Diseases can begin to manifest in the body.

What does probiotics have to do with hair growth?

Our gut consists of good bacteria and bad. We experience problems when there is an imbalance and hair loss can be a result. If the gut is healthy, the blood in our body will be cleaner and this blood nourishes our hair follicles.

Full course antibiotics can kill the good and bad bacteria in your gut. If you are prescribed antibiotics, you can incorporate probiotics into your diet to support a healthy gut. It can take up to a year for our gut to return to good health without taking probiotics, so it is a plus to support our health now. Toxins accumulate in our gut and over time you may experience symptoms such as fatigue, nausea and most of all, for me, an alteration of mental clarity.
Hair loss is largely influenced by your diet, lifestyle, and environment. Hair follicles that are subjected to malnutrition, inflammation, and environmental pollutants cannot sustain hair growth activity and, as a result, die off.

Probiotics encourage healthy flora in the gut and this improves health. Your body will be able to ward off toxins and other conditions that could result in hair loss. Probiotics can increase hair growth and thicken hair. They also have a positive effect on your blood pH levels, thereby resulting in a healthy shine.

 

Which probiotic is best?

The most commonly used probiotic in modern studies is lactobacillus. When choosing a probiotic supplement, make sure that is the primary strain. You can consume probiotics by supplementing with capsules, consuming foods with live cultures such as yogurt and drinking probiotic drinks.

We should take preventative measures internally to support healthy growing hair!

Transitioning to Natural Hair Made Easy

My head is too big to start from a low cut!

Maybe you don’t think your head is too big (like I did) but for whatever reason you do not want to whack it all off just to start your natural hair journey.

So, you have decided that you are ready to let go of your addiction to creamy crack and begin transitioning back to your natural hair. No worries! You do not have to big chop unless you want to. I personally chose to transition because I was not ready to start from a very low haircut. I ended up cutting my relaxer off a year later after many days of aggravation from working with the two textures and ain’t nobody got time for that.

My styles were more difficult to achieve because I had to disguise my relaxed ends the best I could. My husband cut off  my relaxer with clippers and I ended up with a low cut anyway. It wasn’t a fade but low enough.

I felt all kind of ways. It was almost like a weight had been lifted.

How do you transition back to your natural hair?

Step 1:

STOP relaxing your hair and coloring! This is a given right? Wrong! Some ladies continue to relax their edges to keep a “neat” and “slick appearance” while in transition and/or continue to permanently dye their hair.  Relaxers are only going to continue to weaken the hair and the edges usually are the first thing to thin and go. Permanent color may require “lifting”  also known as bleaching and this too weakens the hair, causes dryness issues and will prolong your transitioning process.

Step 2:

No heat, no heat! You must become #teamnoheat. There are many who flat iron their hair to blend the curly texture with the straight (relaxed) hair. You should try to disguise your ends by incorporating different styling options. Excessive heat can result in heat damage therefor prolonging your transitioning process.

Step 3:

                                                         maxresdefault-2

Strengthen your hair with protein treatments and deep conditioner. You must began immediately taking special care of your hair to prevent breakage that can and most likely will take place due to the two texture differences.

Step 4:

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Do your best to prevent your hair from being dry. Dryness results in breakage therefor prolonging your transitioning process.

Step 5:

Once you began loosing hair due to extensions and other hair style options, you will find yourself in a cycle where you will continue to do “cover ups” to hide your hair loss. This results in more hair loss and constant coverage.

 Step 6:

Trim your ends as often as you like to remove the relaxed ends until you are comfortable enough to completely remove it all.
