We have always said that the wellbeing of our body and hair is a result of our diet. Perhaps not everyone knows, but hair is nourished through blood flow to the scalp, i.e. from inside. As a result, if our blood is not rich in oxidants, vitamins and proteins, not only the skin, but also the hair suffers. Dull, damaged, fine and weak hair are caused by malnutrition.
So let’s fill up with vitamins, proteins and oligo elements, which are so important for giving our hair and skin an energy boost. We can find everything we need in fruit and vegetables and the summer is the best season to fill up.
If you don’t want to eat them, then drink them!
Here are a series of recipes to make delicious and ultra-nourishing juices, to drink with friends, to take on holiday and to quench your thirst in the sun. They are suitable for everyone, including children.
The juice recipes have been prepared by our wonderful trichologist Tamara Rossoduva.
HEALTH JUICE, to strengthen your hair and encourage healthy growth.
Here are two recipes to keep your hair firmly on your head.
Ingredients: 3 apples – 10 nettle leaves – 1 lemon – ginger – 4 carrots – 1 celery stick
Method: peel the lemon and remove the pith, slice the apple, grate the carrots, place in the juicer and add all the other ingredients.
Celery contains vitamins A and C, folic acid and calcium. The carrots are antioxidant and contain calcium, iron and magnesium.
Ingredients: 100 g of blueberries – 2 apples – 100 g of raspberries – 1 carrot
Method: chop the apples and carrot and place in the juicer with the other ingredients.
Carrots contain vitamin B5 and biotin, which are excellent for promoting hair growth and regulating the activity of the bulb. Apples and raspberries contain biotin, which helps prevent split ends and gives hair more volume. Blueberries are antioxidants and fight ageing.
Have you already tried our top anti-hair loss treatment Lotion Concetrée. It’s wonderful for activating blood flow and oxygenating the hair bulb.
PURIFY JUICE puts your body back on track and eliminates toxins. For oil-free hair that’s cleaner and lighter.
In summer seborrhoea can become worse as sebaceous glands work overtime and produce more oil than normal.
Here’s the perfect juice to fight this unpleasant effect.

Method: wash the raspberries and the lettuce leaves. Cut the pineapple and watermelon into small pieces. Place everything in the juice extractor, mix, pour and drink.

As well as containing vitamins useful for the hair shaft, these ingredients give it body and make it more resistant. They also have a detoxing and draining effect, which is useful if you suffer from seborrhoea and dermatitis.
