Hair is probably the number one fashion statement among people of today in particular with young girls and women in general. By fashion statement, I mean hair is more important than clothes, jewelry, or shoes. The hair of the head is the crown, pride and shining glory of human security and confidence. However in today’s modern fashion world of media, women in particular are pressured to have a certain hair look in regards to length, texture, color or style. It should have no barring at all how a person’s hair looks, the length or texture as long as the individual is happy, confident and secure in how they look.
Your Hair is Unique and Beautiful
Whether you are of African descent, European, Asian, Indian, Hispanic or other groups, you are unique and beautiful the way God has created your hair. If your hair is tightly curled, it is just as long as long as hair with loose curls or straight hair. The difference only comes because of cultural DNA. Hair can be a cultural expression, art, historical, political or mood expression. There is no standard of beauty and beautiful hair of any race! The western media has us focusing on outer beauty rather than inner beauty.
We gain an understanding from the biblical verse:
“Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. 4 Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight” 1 Peter 3:3-0
Futhermore, singer Indie Arie states in her song about hair, “If I wanna shave it close or if I wanna rock locks, that don’t take a bit away from the soul that I got.”
However, in the race for beautiful hair, (and there’s nothing wrong with that) the magical herb Moringa plays an important and most vital role in a person’s hair growth, beauty and overall health. How could this be? First off, lets examine what key nutrients, vitamins and minerals are needed for hair growth.
Fist we must understand that the overall condition of our body is reflected by the appearance of our hair. If the body is healthy and well-nourished our hair will be happy and healthy. If there are any health problems or nutritional deficiencies, the hair will testify and show breakage or damage. Daily intake of vitamins and minerals play an enormous role in keeping our hair healthy and happy. Certain vitamins, minerals and amino-acids are vital to the metabolic pathways involved in keratin protein, better know as hair metabolism.
Superior Hair Growth Secrets
Therefore, for superior hair growth, the hair ‘s follicles need adequate nutrients and oxygen from the circulatory system in order to grow the hair. Remember, this magical plant is superior in vitamins and minerals, the richest land plant on earth! Moringa all in all contains some 92 known vitamins and minerals and 46 antioxidants! As we can see, Moringa is so special and magical, it has too many life giving nutrients to mention in this article, therefore we will examine a few key ones that contribute to hair growth. When examining some of the vitamin and mineral content of Moringa it contains 7 times the vitamin C in oranges, 25 times the iron in spinach, 2 times the calcium in milk , 4 times the vitamin A in carrots and much more.
Therefore, lets break down these nutrients and examine it a little closer. Vitamin A is a serious element for creating healthy tissue and cells in the body, which reduces hair loss. Moringa is rich in Vitamin A and will contribute to serious hair growth as a result. Zinc, which is abundant in Moringa, will stimulate hair growth through boosting immune function.
Adequate amounts of vitamin A and zinc also prevents clogging of the sebaceous gland along with drying of the scalp. One reason why people in this country and around the world suffer from a lack of hair growth is zinc deficiency. If you have a deficiency in zinc, there will be a reduction or weakening of the hair follicles, which is connected an impairment of DNA and protein synthesis, where zinc has a strong influence on the formation of nucleic acids.
The next crucial element in Moringa for hair growth is the numerous B-rich vitamins in contains, such as B1,B2,B3,B4,B6,B7,B12,B14, and B17. Therefore, hair loss can also take place when the diet is deficient in the proper amount of B vitamins, in particular vitamin B6, folic acid and inositol.
Vitamin E, which is an antioxidant, is another powerful nutrient in Moringa, is crucial to hair growth and helps deliver hair growth because it increases blood circulation to the scalp.
This increase in blood flow to the scalp creates an abundance of nutrients to the hair follicles which produces healthier, stronger and longer hair. In addition, the powerful vitamin C in Moringa produces blood circulation to the scalp and hair follicles. Potassium, another key mineral in Moringa, gives your hair the ability to absorb the nutrients that is needed for strong shiny and vibrant hair.
Next there is the powerful antioxidant called Zeatin. Biochemical test analysis has revealed that the Moringa leaves and leaf powder contains unusually large amounts of plant hormones named cytokinins, such as zeatin. In looking into this chemical further, numerous experiments have shown that cytokinins like zeatin have potent antiaging and protective effects in animals and humans when tested. The way this works is that Zeatin delays aging by its influence on cell division and antioxidant properties.
Minerals, Moringa and Hair Growth
Natural sulfur, which is Moringa contains is another key mineral that helps grow the hair. Organic sulfur, which is different that inorganic sulfur, is a key mineral in the foods we eat such as fruit and vegetables. Sulfur holds the nickname “beauty mineral” for a reason. This is because organic sulfur grows the hair, nails, beautifies the skin and slows down the overall aging process. Other minerals that Moringa contains such as manganese, calcium and copper can promote hair strand formation, hair repair and hair growth.
Moringa has more nutrients then all combinations of fruits and vegetables together!
This is why in order to grow the hair to it s maximum potential, you must eat a healthy natural diet, heavy in fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, which contains all the additional vitamins and trace minerals mentions previously.
Eat foods in their natural or raw state as much as possible and manage or reduce the high amounts of cooked foods in your diet. The junk food diet, heavy in refined white sugars, sodas, candy, cakes, pies, heavy meat consumption, especially pork and red meat contribute to a lack of hair growth.
