The hair has no secrets for the expert who is in the process of revealing her advice to the many international media who request it. One of his recommendations?

A diet adapted for sublimated hair
To understand the impact of diet on the hair, the brand’s website states: “What many people have been led to believe is that a healthy diet often does not include all the necessary elements to optimal hair growth and health. These include diets consisting primarily of fruits, vegetables, and salads with only minimal amounts of protein and calories or, at the other end of the spectrum, diets high in protein and fat, with little or no carbohydrates. The cells in your body need a balance of protein, complex carbohydrates, iron, vitamins, and minerals to function properly. “The site then details an ideal food routine to meet all these needs and ensure the growth of beautiful hair:” For breakfast and lunch, we suggest that you include at least a portion of the size of a palm of protein (fish, chicken, lean meat, eggs, quinoa, nuts, legumes) with a portion of complex carbohydrates (whole wheat bread, skinned potato, pasta, barley, oats, brown rice). “
