Juicing Your Way to Healthy Hair

Our favourite juicing recipes for ultimate hair health!

We’re all guilty of skipping our greens on occasion, but did you know that getting your 5-a-day is essential for maintaining optimum hair health?

Juicing is one of the most effective ways to get a huge dose of all our vitamins and minerals in one shot and as the sun starts to grace us with it’s presence once again, the idea of a cold glass of deliciousness doesn’t sound too painful, does it? For fabulous hair and skin it is vital that you feed your body well and juicing takes care of just that, but don’t be fooled by shop bought juices – more often than not, they are so highly processed and pasteurised that all the goodness has been zapped out.

For best results, do it yourself and try to keep your juicing ingredients organic, fresh and low in sugar. For those of you who (like me) are sticklers for getting the most out of a health kick, fork out a little extra when buying your juicing equipment and opt for a ‘cold press’/‘slow’ juicer which will gently compress your fruit & veg to squeeze out every last inch of it, as opposed to a ‘centrifugal’ juicer which wastes quite a lot of produce and destroys beneficial enzymes.

Long gone are the days where we have to force feed ourselves salads and sprouts – juicing is the way forward and you can easily cram 10 portions into one glass! Certain fruit and vegetables are particularly good for promoting hair health and reducing hair loss, so to make it easy for you, we have put together our favourite juicing recipes for you to try at home. Alternatively, you can easily make up your own juicing recipes with all your favourites!

juicing

Our juicing recipes have been carefully designed specifically for happy, shiny hair by using raw, natural ingredients that we know work wonders. Here’s why:

  • Carrots

    Carrots are super rich in vitamin A, which conditions the scalp, helps to maintain hair health and improves texture. If that wasn’t enough, carrots are also great for preventing hair loss and as such, leads to thicker, stronger locks.

  • Leafy Greens

    Leafy greens such as kale, lettuce and spinach are one of the best things you can put into your juicing creations, full stop. They are jam packed with nutrients, including vitamins B, A, C, K and E as well as a good, healthy dose of calcium. All of these elements lead to the balancing of sebum production and amazingly shiny (but not at all greasy) hair!

  • Cucumber

    Cucumber is a lovely, refreshing addition to any juicing recipe, particularly when teamed with mint on a hot, summer’s day. But that’s not all cucumber has to offer: Rich in sulfur, manganese, potassium and the extremely important silica, this is a no brainer for stunning tresses.
