Many of us are familiar with hair oils & balms and they’ve become staples in hair/beard care regimens but there are plenty of other natural ingredients and nutrients we can, and should, attempt to incorporate into our hair care routines. Blueberries are one of them!
Aside from tasting fantastic, blueberries stimulate hair growth because they contain proanthocyanidins – a plant chemical. Proanthocyanidins are a class of polyphenols found in a variety of plants. This chemical interacts with hair follicles to accelerate growth. Blueberries are also packed with antioxidants and vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Vitamin B complex is particularly good for growing our curls. Blueberries aid hair growth by improving oxygenation and circulation of blood in the body, particularly the scalp.
Beauty practitioners also endorse blueberries for the thick and healthy locks. It’s also been proven as a food that helps to slow down the process of hair aging.
Be sure to give our LIMITED EDITION Blue & Cream Beard Balm.
*This can be used in your hair care routine as well.
So how do blueberries and hair co-exist in your regimen? Well externally, a shampoo, or other products, enhanced with blueberries can assist hair growth. There are a number of products on the market which contain blueberry extracts and other vitamins such as B5.
