Hairtox Smoothie: The Ultimate Hair Growth Boosting Smoothie Recipe

You are what you eat.

Right?

But did you know your hair is what you eat, too?

Think about it:

Processed foods = toxins. Toxins in you hair. No, thank you.

On the other hand:

Highly nutritious smoothie = all the vitamins... In your hair. Yum.

We’re low maintenance.

Hair growth can be too.

Because who really has time to mashup a banana and avocado hair mask and sit with it in your hair?

Think of the last time you did that. I’ll wait.

In the meantime...

Here is the fuss-free way to grow your hair:

How To Detox Your Hair And Get Ready For Massive Hair Growth!

We're gonna share a recipe.

And not just any recipe.

This is our Ultimate Hair Growth Boosting Smoothie Recipe.

Does it work?

Uh, yes.

12 months ago I had short, dying hair.

Then I started drinking this Hair Growth Boosting Smoothie.

And now I've got nice, thick hair!

It's amazing!

(My bf been drinking them too...and he's got more hair than ever!)

Needless to I've shared this recipe with my friends. With epic results.

"Why does it work so well?"

Great question...

Let's look at the ingredients:

 

1. Potassium and Anti-oxidants

It’s no secret that healthy, growing hair comes down to a balanced diet.

Crucial to that balance is getting enough potassium.

Where can you get loads of potassium from?

Well...bananas!

"Is it really that important?"

Read this next bit:

A lack of potassium can lead to hair loss.

If that doesn’t make you eat a banana I don’t know what will.

Bananas are a rich in potassium and many antioxidants.

So you can’t go wrong with blending a banana into your Hairtox Smoothie.

2. Increase Blood Circulation To Your Scalp

Orange for hair growth

What we know:

Oranges have vitamin C.

What you might not know:

Vitamin C combined with the bio-flavonoids in oranges increase circulation to the scalp.

Aka. what your scalp needs to promote hair growth.

Oranges also include two types of vitamin B.

Their science-y names are folic acid and inositol.

Which are known to simultaneously prevent hair loss and vitalise hair growth.

Boom!

Two birds, one stone.

 

3. Stimulate Explosive Hair Growth With B2

Apples contain a nutrient called biotin.

Which is known as a natural growth steroid for hair and nails.

I had you at growth steroid, didn’t I? 💪🏼

Add apples to your smoothie for an organic way to get this vital nutrient, infusing strength and thickness into your locks.

BONUS:

The B2 in apples will also work towards stimulating hair growth.

4. Natural Silica are the building blocks for hair and nails

I don’t know if I’m going to do cucumber justice like this guy’s cucumber rap above.

(Watch it. I need this guy motivating me in all aspects of my life)

To reiterate his wisdom…

Cucumber is packed full of vitamins and minerals.

Including Silica and vitamin C.

Silica is a mineral commonly found in hair and nail supplements. And it massively enhances hair growth.

It also detoxes your body. Which is nice...

 

5. Essential Vitamins and Minerals for Hair Growth

Lucky for us, there’s vitamin A.

All cells need vitamin A for growth. And many of your regular green veg contain a high source of vitamin A.

Spinach, broccoli and kale especially.

Unfortunately:

Many of us find it hard to make time in our girl-boss lives to eat 1 cup of raw broccoli, spinach and kale per day.

It’s why you need a super greens powder in your pantry, stat.

Here's the deal:

You’ll find most greens powders contain countless vitamins and minerals, all great for your hair.

BUT!

Always check the ingredients before you buy.

Make sure you pick a powder that

  • Uses only/or mainly organic ingredients
  • Is a high source of vitamin A
  • Is free of additives and sweeteners.

And, lastly...the moment you've been waiting for...

🥁 (drumroll)
