Seaweed Powder is a rich source of organic proteins, minerals and vitamins including vitamins B12 (not found in land plants), vitamin E, and other nutrients. When applied to the hair, Seaweed acts as a powerful detoxifier that draws out toxins and impurities while adding beneficial nutrients. Seaweed contains many of the necessary vitamins and minerals needed for hair growth. For instance, according to “Alive: Canadian Journal of Health & Nutrition,” omega-3 fatty acids feed hair follicles to stimulate growth, and iron and zinc maintain hair production. Zinc deficiency leads to hair shedding. Moreover, vitamins A and C are also needed to produce sebum, which acts as a natural hair conditioner; vitamins B and E help maintain healthy hair. Calcium, rich in seaweed, is another vital mineral in hair production. Finally, detoxifying the body can promote healthier hair growth.
