Eating healthy is the way to go. It allows us to provide the nutrients needed by our body to carry out it’s daily functions. Whatever you consume will reflect in your body, especially your hair. Eating a lot of food full of vitamins, minerals as well as drinking water will aid in nourishing your scalp and hair strands.

Benefits of this healthy hair smoothie:
Cucumbers and Lettuce– Cucumbers and lettuce have high levels of water, therefore, providing your body and hair strands with moisture and aiding in strengthing the hair shaft.
Strawberries – Strawberries contain Vitamin C which will aid in hair growth. As well as, providing your tresses with sheen.
Bananas – Bananas are very high in potassium; another fortifying ingredient that not only aids in repairing the hair shaft but penetrating it with moisture.
Mangos – Mangos are high in minerals and vitamins that give your hair a natural sheen. Your hair will have that “mangLow”
Protein powder – You can have too much protein in your diet, however, if your hair needs serious repair or rejuvenation, add it! Remember to adjust the measurements to suit your taste. As you know, hair is made of protein, hence consuming it will allow the gaps along your shaft to be filled with protein bringing it back to it's true form.
Liquid biotin – This is the key ingredient. Usually we consume biotin by swallowing a pill supplement, however, it may cause some of us to breakout heavily. Often due to the lack of water in our diet. When adding it to a smoothie you not only take it in water, in liquid form, it allows you to control the dosage. After 4 drops you are good to drink it.
Caring for your natural hair should be fun. Blending up a fresh fruit smoothie is not only good for your hair but, it's good for your body too. So, take time to nourish your body and enjoy making this great recipe.
