We love soft, supple curls•

At CurlyCoilyTresses®️, we love soft, supple curls. But we know that no matter how well you treat your hair or how much you pamper your curls, it could all be for nothing if your hair isn’t strong underneath it all.
That’s why part of our formula focuses on strengthening your hair from the inside out.
We also love to promote a healthy diet and encourage our clients to eat foods that actively promote healthy, strong hair.
Here are a few of our favorite hair-health ingredients.
Fatty, oily fish is full of omega-3 fatty acids. Over time, omega-3s can help moisturize your scalp and strengthen hair follicles, giving you strong, luscious hair.
Legumes, like beans, lentils and chickpeas are full of the super-nutrient biotin, which prevents your hair from thinning.
Milk and other dairy products contain high amounts of calcium, which your hair needs to stay strong. If you don’t drink milk or can’t process dairy, other great sources of calcium include dark leafy green vegetables (kale, spinach, and collard greens), almonds, and seeds (especially poppy seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds).
Think of oatmeal (especially oatmeal made from steel cut oats) as your hair’s best friend. Not only does oatmeal contain omega-3 fatty acids, which we’ve already established are great for your hair, but it also contains a host of other hair-boosting nutrients like zinc, iron, and polyunsaturated fatty acids.
It may not be glamorous, but barley can go a long way toward healing your thin, weak hair. In one study, people who consumed barley saw a 34% increase in hair growth as compared to the control group.
It may not be the most fun part of taking care of your curls (we think using our Enrich Moisturizer and Nourish Treatment takes the cake!) but eating a healthy diet can absolutely help strengthen your hair over time.
