Collagen for hair

5/5 - (1 vote)

     People need to be aware that collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It is composed of the individual amino acids glycine, proline, hydroxyproline and arginine and is found exclusively in animal tissue in nature, especially in bone and connective tissue.

     Specialists recommend it for the firmness and elasticity of the skin, for the nails, for the muscles, for the strength of the bones … and for the hair. It is estimated that 25% of our body is made up of these essential proteins.

    In addition to these very important benefits, it is also responsible for giving the skin elasticity, hair strength and keeping everyone in place. In fact, collagen proteins account for 30% of all body proteins and 70% of skin proteins.

     People need to be aware that as the years go by, the body does not produce much collagen. Its reduction is due to stress, poor diet, imbalances in intestinal health, etc.

     The one that is part of the hair structure belongs to type V and is responsible for ensuring firmness, elasticity, body and smoothing. It tends to disappear with age and due to external aggressions (sun, air, wind, hair dryers or aggressive hair treatments). As a result of this lack or loss, the hair fades, becomes weak, brittle, ugly, boring and can fall out.

     Hair collagen is used to regenerate hair which is:

  • It is used if your hair is very ugly and has split ends or cannot be repaired with a simple cut.
  • It is also recommended for long hair that has lost its body.
  • For those people who, due to stress, illness or poor hygiene, have damaged their hair so severely that they need this emergency shock.

     It is very important that when we talk about collagen for hair, we always talk about beauty, cosmetics and hairstyle. If you have had an accident or aggressive drug treatment, you should never use the most aggressive methods without consulting your doctor.    

     If you want to buy this collagen, you can find it in the following forms:

  • It can be purchased in the form of pills that can be ingested to restore these proteins. It will be visible not only in the hair, but also in the health of cartilage, bones, nails and skin.
  • In addition to pills, it can also be taken from the wide range of shampoos, masks and serums with this protein. The ones that work best are the ones that are combined with keratin and, above all, for smooth hair.

    How can you take possession of it in a natural way? Even if you benefit from state-of-the-art products, because in terms of the beauty of the rest of the body, it is a healthy life that allows optimal levels of collagen. Please note the following:

  • First of all, I recommend that you eat a proper diet and eat seaweed in salads and soups.
  • Milk and nuts, for vegans, are the best options.
  • Avoid products that have a chemical composition, because they are very harmful to your hair
  • If possible, keep it away from sun, wind and sand.
