Get Kate Middleton hair by improving your diet
Kate Middleton has become something of a style icon since her wedding last year, and you’ll find it difficult to come across someone who isn’t a little bit envious of her glossy locks.
According to dermatologist Jessica Wu, our hair is extremely susceptible to changes in our diet and lifestyle, so a period of stress at work or a few sleepless nights will soon take its toll on the state of our scalp.
“If you’re not eating a balanced diet - and not supplying the follicles with the nutrients they need - your hair will pay the price,” the expert wrote in the Daily Mail. “It will become finer and lighter in colour, and the cuticle (the outermost layer of each hair) will fray more easily, so the hair becomes rough in texture and more prone to split ends.”
To counter this, Ms Wu suggests upping your intake of foods that are high in an amino acid named cysteine, such as pork, eggs, red peppers, dairy, garlic and oats. This will strengthen the hair by boosting production of keratin, which is what forms strands of hair.
Eating lots of spinach, lentils, whole grains and green beans will also increase your levels of silicon, which is essential for healthy strong locks.
Weak, brittle hair that is prone to breakage may be the result of a lack of iron in your diet, as anaemia can lead to thinning hair in women. Make sure your iron levels are kept up by preparing meals containing lean red meat, kidney beans and turkey, or take a nutritional supplement to ensure healthy hair, skin and nails fit for a princess.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
