The beauty and strength of our hair depend on Amino Acids. Thick silky hair always looks gorgeous. Some have such hair since birth, and others have to achieve the perfect hairstyle.
Amino Acids include keratin is the protein that makes up 80% of the hair structure. Diets, temperature fluctuations, coloration are factors that destroy keratin and worsen hair condition.
What is Amino Acids
Amino Acids are structural units of any protein, including keratin. Serious illnesses can occur due to a lack of a certain type of acid: some Amino Acids are responsible for the condition of the skin and hair; some Amino Acids fill the muscles with energy; others are essential in brain function.
Types of Amino Acids
There are about 150 types of Amino Acids in nature, and we need only 20 of them. Some acids produced by our bodies, others must come from an external source.
Amino Acids for hair
There are four Amino Acids that play a major role in keratin production: cysteine, lysine, arginine, and methionine. These Amino Acids are responsible for strong and healthy hair.
- Cysteine makes the hair shiny and silky. Natural sources of cysteine: meat, eggs, peas, corn, walnuts, beans, sprouts, lentils.
- Lysine is responsible for growth, supplementing this amino acid helps in restoring damaged hair and forming healthy follicles.
- Arginine improves blood circulation, thus increasing blood flow to hair roots and increasing the number of nutrients to follicles. An additional dose of arginine, often used in the treatment of hair loss. Natural sources of arginine: nuts, meat, fish, soy, wheat, rice, oats.
- Methionine affects the thickness of the hair and prevents brittleness and hair loss. Methionine is an indispensable amino acid, it is not synthesized in the body and must be constantly ingested with food or additives. Natural sources of methionine: beef meat, cod, cottage cheese, rice.
