We all want to look after ourselves to the best we can by eating our 5 a day, getting a nice brisk walk in and spending a small fortune on those ‘magic products’ that claim to solve all your problems. Our bodies are amazing things and have ways of telling us when things are not quite right such as changes in your nails or hair.
Now we all take our hair for granted. We throw it around like it is a spare part, but our hair is incredibly sensitive and can easily be affected by changes in our lives such as stress, ill health, or a change in lifestyle such as diet. We all spend a small fortune of these ‘miracle’ products and vitamins which we believe will help us achieve those Kardashian locks. But we do not need to be spending £60 plus on hair vitamins and hair serums when we can use food to help feed our hair!
Below we have picked three recipes that will help you feed your hair and your body!
Hibiscus Iced Tea
5 dried hibiscus flowers or 1 teaspoon crushed dried hibiscus flowers or a hibiscus tea bag
