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.

Since the cold press presses the produce to extract the oil, no heat is involved. ... You get 100% of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients when you apply cold pressed oil on your face.

- The Rosehip Oil Diaries- Entry 1Hello Asma, Thank you for your message. Being a carrier oil, Pomegranate oil is safe to apply on the skin without dilution. However, because of its richness it is often used at dilutions of approximately 5-15% in skincare formulations. Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing. Hope this helps.
