Cherry season has arrived: they are among the first fruit trees to ripen. The abundance of vitamins in cherries makes it a wonder fruit. Eating cherries is not only good for your skin but is equally beneficial for the health of your hair as well as your digestive system. The vitamins present in cherries are capable of providing nourishment to the hair. Here’s how the different vitamins present in cherries help in maintaining healthy hair.
It regulates the production of an essential acid called retinoic acid which is important for hair follicles and helps keep hair and scalp hydrated.
Vitamin B helps improve blood circulation in the body, including the scalp, which results in regeneration of the existing cells and triggers hair growth.
Vitamin C is very essential for hair. It helps in strengthening hair follicles and prevents breakage from the roots. It also nourishes the hair and prevents split ends and hair loss by stimulating the growth of new hair follicles.
This vitamin helps with proper blood circulation to maintain immunity and helps prevent any hair damage. It also maintains appropriate moisture in the hair and scalp.
I know, I know, Sistas. Here I go back to aloe vera juice, but it has so many benefits. I’m not talking about the aloe vera juice with sugar added and the cute pulp in it. I’m talking about 98% aloe vera and above, which can be found in the laxative aisle of most stores like Walmart or CVS. Once you get over the taste, you will love what it does for your body inside and out. Drinking a cup of aloe vera juice a day boosts hair growth and it aids follicles to retain moisture.
Aloe gel applied to the scalp removes dead skin cells and clears excess sebum which can contribute to hair loss and poor hair health. It prevents itching on the scalp and reduces dandruff.
Combined internal and external aloe vera hair support is amazing.
Cherry, almonds and rosemary also have great benefits for your hair.
Eating cherries gives you all the vitamins that promote hair growth.
Did you know massaging rosemary oil into your scalp also promotes hair growth? Leave on at least a half hour before you rinse out if you don’t want to leave it in.
Did you know almonds stimulate hair growth? This is why one of my favorite oils is our Cherry RoseMary oil, which can be found on www.TeamCherie.com
