Vitamins for Hair

July 4, 2008 by · Comments Off 

I, as you already know have fine thin hair, and am anxiously awaiting till I can get hair extensions! Until then I must drudge forward with my never ending bad hair days. I have tried every single product you can think of, vitamins, shaving my head (if it grows faster on my legs then, well, why not?) not washing for longer periods of time, which is not easy for us with this kind of hair. The very next day it looks as though we must have gone a week without washing it! The only time I was completely amazed at my hair and how fast it grew was when I was pregnant. If I only had the patience for 10 children I would have beautiful LONG hair. But until this patience and day comes I drink water, take vitamins, use what I believe to be the right hair care products but still am left unsatisfied with my hair.

I am going to start a vitamin regimen of Vegetal Silica & Horsetail root this coming Monday. If anyone else would like to try this please stick to it for at least 3 months and keep me informed of any changes in your hair, skin nails, etc. Here are what I found to be the benefits of both:

Aging starts deep within your cells, which contain collagen, the binding element that literally holds your body together. As you age, collagen deteriorates and loses its natural elasticity, resulting in loose skin, thinning hair and brittle nails. One of the main components of collagen is silica.
According to an article appearing in the Swedish newspaper Halsoblast, Joan Collins, Goldie Hawn and Barbra  Streisand all credit their youthful appearance to Dr. Kervran’s patented vegetal silica. Goldie Hawn was said to find Dr. Kervran’s special water-soluble extract of silica from spring horsetail extremely beneficial for growing thick, healthy looking hair. Joan Collins and Barbra  Streisand were quoted as using it for longer, stronger nails and firm, supple skin.
The horsetail in Vegetal Silica is freshly harvested in the spring, when it contains more soluble silica, due to the concentration of bioflavonoids in the plant at that time. The gentle water extraction process not only preserves the bioflavonoids, but ensures a high level of many essential minerals and trace elements, making Vegetal Silica an important source of other health-restoring nutrients.
The proven effectiveness of Vegetal Silica is due to the soluble silica content and the synergistic balance of all the trace elements. Clinical studies, research and personal testimonials have shown Vegetal Silica to have beneficial effects on hair, skin and nails.
Organic vegetal silica has received recognition in Canada. However, research from other parts of the world shows the effectiveness of organic vegetal silica goes much further. Here is what has been found:
· Researchers Sullivan and Volcani (USA) at Columbia University (1973) concluded that silica is an essential nutrient.

· Dr. C. L. Kervran (France) found silica to have a direct relationship with the absorption of all minerals, especially calcium.

· Holt and Osborne (USA) demonstrated in their research the essential role silica has in maintaining supple skin.

· Drs. Kervran and Monceaux (France) found that with silica supplementation fragile nails became normal in a relatively short time period.

For those of you interested, take a photo of your hair and skin, take Vegetal Silica for the next 3 months and then please let me hear your comments. It would be nice to spread the word that yes, indeed you can change your hairs appearance simply by taking vitamins. If you can try to buy the brand flora, it is one of the best and contains the required daily intake. (90 Capsules – $16.59, 180 Capsules $ 30.49)

Till next time Good Luck,


How to Have Healthy Hair by Eating Right

June 2, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Just like our skin it is all in what we take in our bodies that makes our hair healthy or not. I am often asked why someone’s skin looks so poor, and I am often right, it is in what you eat. It is the same with your hair. If you are putting junk food into your body how is anything healthy going to come out of it?


You can increase the health of your hair, skin and nails by a healthy diet, here are some examples. Now I know that flaxseed does not sound very appetizing but it is so beneficial in your diet.


You can sprinkle some on your cereal every morning as it provides essential fatty acids. Eat blueberries whenever you can they are amazing for your skin and hair, they are known to help in keeping that youthful appearance. blueberry.jpg

Take a handful of nuts with you to work or on a long drive, of course nuts are fattening but only when and if you eat them like they are going out of style.  But when you add only a little to a healthy meal they are very nutritious.


They fill you up so that the smallest amount will make you feel full, you don’t need much.  Eat as much fresh fruit as you can, your hair and skin love fresh fruit. Onions, broccoli, fish and sea vegetables are all good sources. Drink tea made from alfalfa, burdock root, dandelion, and yellow dock. Take Vegetal Selica and Horsetail vitamins, excellent for helping hair grow healthy and strong. Eat foods rich in biotin (Vitamin B7), it produces crucial enzymes.


Many people use Biotin to strengthen hair and nails. All of these “suggestions” will help maintain skin, hair and well just basic nutrition. What we put into our bodies is what we will see come out of our bodies in the long run.


Till next time Good Luck,
