GET LONG HAIR... SOON
Check your digestive health, say Maryska Taylor and Rachel Corradetti, naturopathic doctors who founded Clinic Intrinsic, a mobile naturopathic service. “You can’t grow lustrous long hair if you aren’t absorbing any of the nutrients needed to do so,” says Taylor. Gastrointestinal issues and an imbalance of gut flora (which can arise from long-term use of painkillers and antibiotics, respectively) can prevent nutrients from being fully absorbed by the body, says Corradetti. Taylor recommends fish oil to help quell inflammation and a bitter like gentian to stimulate stomach acid, which is needed to break down the protein in food for more efficient digestion. You may see changes in a month, but Corradetti advises sticking with it for at least three.
