Hair - Ever wonder why you can’t grow long, luscious locks? The average person looses 100 hairs in a day: you lose it when you wash it; you lose it when you brush it, and it falls out throughout the day.

Sometimes your hair also just simply breaks off and falls out as you go through your day.

Wanna know why?

  • Lack of protein is one big reason. Your hair is made up of protein. Hair needs protein to grow.

  • In many cases it is becuase your hair is slowing down it's growth cycle.

  • Medications and or hair care products and styling negatively impact your hair.

  • Becuase the foods you eat, or don't eat, are not giving your body the nutrients it needs such as zinc, biotin, b-vitamins, omega's and iron to fortify, enhance and strengthen your hair.

I am a firm believer and know the POSITIVE IMPACT feeding your body nutrient dense food can have.

2. Collagen Protein

You know I am a big proponent of gelatin and the rich, collagen protein it possesses. We all need protein to keep our hair healthy, strong and growing.

Collagen Protein is different from plant protein in that it contains the most important amino acids (glycine, proline, hydroxyproline and argenine) which are essential for long, beautiful healthy hair, skin and nails.
