I get a lot of e-mails with people asking me “De, how do you get your hair so long? Or so healthy?” My hair is very thick with a lot of curl when I wash it, and a ridiculous amount of natural shine (yes I’m very vain when it comes to my tresses). But when I was growing up, my hair was also incredibly dry,and damaged, with almost no growth at all, (it stayed shoulder length forever) no shine at all, and my skin was no better (acne galore!). My diet mostly consisted of 50 cents soda’s and a whole bunch of other sugar-laden foods that local bodegas offer. I’ve said before, and I’ll say this again, there is no way you can have glistening shiny long hair, and healthy skin if your diet consist of massive sugar and other stuff that doesn’t provide your body with the nutrients it needs to nourish your hair and skin. Now since I sometimes don’t have the time to eat nutrient-rich salads (remember I’m trying to take over the world), I make sure I take a greens replacement drink every morning that is loaded with so many vitamins, and minerals, there’s just way too many to count.
Garden of Life
I’ve been drinking this putrid tasting stuff for a few years. It tastes like death if you drink it with water, but if you mix it with Orange juice the taste is fine. Every since I’ve been taking this stuff, my hair and skin have really shown me that it’s working. My hairstylist is always complementing me on how fast my hair grows and how ridiculously shiny it is as well. Your body needs nutrients to create healthy locks of hair and fantastic skin and this stuff really does provide you with everything and then some. Also, I rarely get sick and if I do get sick, I’m fine within a day. This stuff really boost your immune system! If you’re not as rushed as me, then make sure to have a big organic salad every day. Greens are loaded with so many nutrients and vitamins, your hair will see the difference. DE Promises. Even Ted Gibson said hair growth starts internally.
