Did you know that onions, garlic, brussel sprouts, cabbage, kale, and turnips are rich with sulfur? Sulfur is needed to make protein for strong hair. Silicon, found in alfalfa, beets, bell peppers, and leafy greens, is needed for hair growth and formation. Beets, broccoli, garlic, radishes, and green leafy vegetables, are full of copper, which works with zinc to maintain healthy hair growth.
The real ‘magic’ of vegetables though, comes from the sea. In certain places around the world, ocean vegetables are eaten as a regular part of the diet, and have been used for centuries as a way to promote dark, thick, lustrous hair. Ocean vegetables can be used internally and externally, to get the maximum benefit. When taken internally, people make rather miraculous claims about these vegetables such as prevention and even reversal of gray hair and hair loss, thicker hair, and longer, faster growing hair. Although there are many causes of hair thinning, or excess hair shedding, it seems that sea vegetables can help correct them by providing protein, minerals, iron, and iodine, while simultaneously detoxifying the body. You can easily find these sea vegetables, such as spirulina, kelp, wakame, and even the most familiar sea plant, nori, at your local health store!
When used externally, sea vegetables help create thicker and stronger hair with their natural proteins and minerals. You will immediately notice thicker glossier hair when using hair care products that contain these vegetables. Nearly all Morrocco Method products contain a wide variety of ocean plants, giving your hair that extra boost of nutrition every time you use them. So, if your hair is thin, comes out in clumps, or you just want to beautify it, try adding sea vegetables to your diet and hair care routine for some magical results!
