Providing your hair roots with the right nutrients is the key to optimal hair growth.
Have you ever wondered why some people have such incredibly healthy, shiny hair? You certainly know that a good shampoo and conditioner are important, but have you ever thought about the “inner workings” of your scalp?
A look beneath the surface (aka scalp)
Our scalp is like a garden in which the hair thrives. The hair follicles, those tiny powerhouses under your scalp from which your hair grows, are the key to strong and healthy hair. They are waiting to be supplied with everything they need to produce beautiful hair.
Hair root: The hair follicles from which the hair grows are located in the scalp. Healthy hair follicles are essential for strong, healthy hair growth.
Nutrient supply: The blood vessels in the scalp supply the hair follicles with the necessary nutrients. A well-nourished scalp therefore promotes healthy hair follicles and hair growth.
Cell regeneration and repair: The skin cells of the scalp regularly renew themselves, which is necessary for the repair and growth of healthy hair. Problems such as skin irritation or inflammation can disrupt this process.
The principle of urgency lets your hair “starve”
Perhaps you already eat a very healthy and balanced diet and are wondering whether you still need extra nutrients for your scalp and hair in the form of supplements? The answer in most cases is: Yes. This is because your body distributes the available nutrients via the bloodstream according to the principle of urgency.
The principle of urgency ensures that vital organs such as the heart, kidneys and brain are always supplied with nutrients first. They pick the raisins out of the cake and are allowed to “eat their fill” of the nutrients that are transported to them via the blood highway. Only if there is still some left, nutrients can reach the outer areas of the body via the capillaries to the skin and hair roots.
So if your hair is rather dull, brittle and lackluster, you can be sure that you are not providing it with optimal nutrients from the inside, or in other words: none of it is getting through because it was needed more urgently elsewhere.
These are the top micronutrients for hair and scalp
What is the solution? It’s simple: provide your body with a 5-star deluxe nutrient buffet every day that is large enough to ensure that all areas of your body are optimally nourished – including the hair roots and scalp.
By the way, you don’t need to be afraid of overdosing. This is the most common fear as to why a supplement for skin and hair is not taken. But the vitamins and minerals for the hair are water-soluble and therefore cannot be stored. This means they cannot accumulate in your body. That’s why you need to consume them in sufficient quantities EVERY DAY.
The most targeted way to do this is with supplements, as only then can you be sure that you are actually taking in all the nutrients you need in sufficient quantities. Or do you know exactly how much biotin your muesli contains? As long as you take natural vitamins in a nutrient combination such as those from Ogaenics, your body simply eliminates everything that is superfluous.
The patented active ingredient from organic millet strengthens the hair roots for fuller, stronger hair and promotes a healthy scalp. It promotes cell metabolism, cell division and regeneration of the tissue at the hair root. Contained in the Hairleluja Super Hair Complex.
Omega fatty acids
These unsaturated fatty acids are known for their anti-inflammatory properties. They can help combat a dry scalp and dandruff, make hair shinier and promote hair growth. Contained in the Hairleluja Super Hair Complex.
Vitamin A / beta-carotene
All cells need vitamin A for growth. This also includes hair, which is the fastest growing tissue in the human body. Vitamin A also helps the skin glands to produce sebum, which keeps the scalp moisturized and hair healthy. Incidentally, at Ogaenics we only use the plant-based vitamin A precursor beta-carotene, as this is only converted to vitamin A in the body when your body needs it.
A powerful antioxidant that supports scalp health. It helps to combat oxidative stress and free radicals, which can impair hair growth.
Biotin (vitamin B7)
Often referred to as the “hair growth vitamin”, biotin is crucial for the production of keratin, the main component of our hair. An adequate intake of biotin can help to promote hair growth and improve the hair structure. Contained in Beauty Base.
Vitamin C is your protective shield against free radicals. It is important for collagen formation and helps to keep your hair follicles healthy and anchor the hair firmly in the scalp. Contained in Beauty Base.
Silicon is known to contribute to the strength and elasticity of hair. It can help to make the hair more resistant to breakage. It also supports the formation of collagen and keratin, which is essential for the structure and health of the hair and scalp. Contained in Beauty Base.
This trace element plays a key role in hair repair and growth. It helps to keep the oil glands around the hair follicles functioning properly, which in turn contributes to hair health. Contained in Beauty Base.
Don’t forget to make sure you have a sufficient water supply. Water is the elixir of life for every cell in your body, including those in your scalp.
By providing your scalp with these nutrients, you create the perfect basis for healthy, strong and shiny hair. However, it is also important to have realistic expectations and to be patient. Not all hair on the head goes through the same cycle at the same time. Instead, the hair is in different phases, causing some to grow while others rest or fall out.
This natural cycle is part of normal hair growth and can cause you to continuously lose hair and grow new hair at the beginning of your supplement routine. It’s understandable that you may be impatient to see the results of your efforts in terms of your hair quality and fullness. But better plan on 4-9 months. And rest assured: The results are absolutely worth it and will inspire you!
