3 ways to use Tangerine for healthy hairListening to a radio station a couple of days ago where they were talking about tangerines, I was amazes about its benefits for a healthy living, great skin, and of course, hair. Here are 3 ways to use tangerine for healthy hair and why you should include it in your routine..

Tangerine is great for your hair because it is loaded with vitamin C that helps to build collagen which is crucial for hair growth. Vitamin C helps in the absortion of Iron which is also good for healthy hair, helping your body absorb it. Tangerine oil is known for its anti-fungal and antiseptic properties that helps treat dandruff, dry scalp, and other hair infections.

Tangerine is a good source of Vitamin B12 that reduces hair loss, promotes hair growth, and slows down the graying process.

3 ways to use Tangerine for healthy hair.

  1. Juice: One of the easier ways to include tangerines in your hair routine is by drinking it obviously, but in this post I will present you a topic treatment. Just squeeze a tangerine to a healthy and loaded vitamin C juice. Apply it on dry hair before you wash it, but make sure to add a tea spoon of your favorite oil, so the juice sticks onto your hair. After 30 minutes, rinse, wash, and style as usual.tangerine-for-heaalthy-hair
  2. Herbal tea. This is a another way to use tangerine for healthy  hair. You will make the tea with the tangerine dry peel. You can do this two ways: Peel the tangerine, cut it in small pieces and let it dry for a couple of days. If you don’t want to do this, buy a tangerine peel tea. I got mine at Amazon, but in any ancient store you’ll find it easily. Apply it on dry or wet hair, rinse out, and style as usual.tangerine-tea-for-hair te-de-mandarina-para-el-cabello

Power food for hair growth | El alimento mas poderoso para el crecimiento del cabello.

Power food for hair growth

If you are looking for a power food for hair growth, allow me to introduce the mighty turmeric. This colorful and mild flavor root is the new addition to my diet to grow healthy hair from the inside out. Turmeric, also known as Hladi is part of the ginger family. You amy know turmeric as the main ingredient to making curry. Turmeric is very popular in the indian culinary kitchen, but its benefits on hair and skin are amazing.

Turmeric has: antibacterial properties, anti-aging properties, anti fungal, antiviral properties, it improves skin elasticity, and controls dandruff and hair loss. Turmeric helps detox the body. When you detox your body you also get rid of inflammation and inflammation is one of the main reasons of lower hair growth and weak hair.
After much research, I found out that in order for you to take advantage of turmeric for hair growth and all the amazing healthy properties ( remember it is antiflamatory, so you will also have flatter abs) you have to eat it. At the beginning I was really scared because even though I like curry, I didn’t quite understand how I could add Turmeric to any food or drinks.

The transition into this power food has been very easy because even though turmeric is the main ingredient in curry, it doesn’t taste anything like curry. The taste is actually very mild and I added it to my smoothes in the morning and I didn’t notice any difference but a change of color. It is amazing to add to eggs and any food, it adds a yummy, but not overpowering taste while adding a beautiful orange color.

There a few things that you have to consider before adding turmeric to your diet: handle with care, the color is really, really orange and it may tint your hands and even your kitchen utensils. As much as you can, try to buy organic turmeric, I got mine for around $11 a pound (I am talking about turmeric root not powder). Brush your teeth right after you eat it, specially if you have any straightening device on your teeth.

Turmeric is also used on many skin products, and right now I am using Apsara turmeric facial cleanser and I am loving it. Ph balanced, rich foam that cleanses the skin deeply to get rid of dirt and impurities without causing it to lose its natural moisture. To read more about Apsara click here .

Add turmeric to: juices and smoothies, add color to eggs, soups, rices etc, top it over salads, sauté with spinach or kale for a delicious side dish. Be creative and feel free to comment your ideas in the comments down below.
