How Hair is Linked to Hormones
In general, the hair cycle from front to back is impacted by hormones. Androgens, like testosterone and dihydrotestosterone, are some major factors determining your hair growth. Androgens are sex hormones produced by the adrenal glands. That means your adrenal health can affect your hair health and hair growth. When you have excess androgens in your system, it can result in hair loss. This is why it’s so important to pay attention to your adrenals! Keeping hormone levels and adrenal glands healthy is essential for healthy, luscious locks.
4 Natural Strategies for Gorgeous Hair
Getting to the root cause with proper hormone balance is crucial. Let’s talk about how we can do this.
1.Hydration: properly hydrating is number one for full, shiny, healthy locks. When you’re dehydrated, your hair can be brittle and rough. Aim to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water each day. Fill and carry a water bottle (not plastic!) with you. I love our Hydration Superfood Energy powder. It’s strawberry kiwi flavor makes hydrating easy. Our formula is packed with antioxidants and B vitamins.
2.Scalp Massage: scalp massages help to relieve stress (great for those suffering from adrenal fatigue) and can stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles.
3.Essential Oils: the best essential oils for promoting hair growth and health are rosemary, lavender, frankincense, and basil.
4.Collagen: collagen can help fight damage to hair follicles, prevent hair thinning, and even promote glowing, healthy-looking hair. Collagen is super easy to add to your diet. Make sure when you are looking for a collagen product that it is clinically proven to help hair growth! Like ours! Our Beauty Collagen Complex contains clinically proven collagen, stress-reducing herbs and adaptogens, and biotin. It’s a vanilla honey flavor that is amazing for our morning coffee, oatmeal, smoothie, and oat pancakes.
