Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair down! From Samson to Rapunzel, from beehives to bobs, hair and hairstyles have played a huge role in human history and culture. Nails, too, have been objects of obsession and of which we take good care. Nails are nothing new: We’ve been colouring, filing and adorning nails for at least 7,000 years.
While we’d all like to spend more time turning our hair and nails into conversation focal points, if you’re like most people, time is just not always on our side.
Before we delve into ways we can make the most of hair and nail health, there’s something important we need to remember: How our hair and nails look isn’t only about being aesthetically pleasing for yourself or others. The primary role of your hair and nails is actually to protect important areas of your body. Their health can say a lot about your overall well-being, including the state of your nutrition. With this in mind, it’s important to practice good hair and nail habits, just like you do with your skincare and beauty rituals.
VitaminMe Hair + Nails is a long-term investment.
There are no quick fixes, especially when it comes to hair and nail health. We need to put in the time and effort in order to see the results and have them last passed a week. Sure, topical hair treatments help, but it’s really what we ingest that helps grow strong, resilient and healthy hair and nails. Ingestible beauty or beauty from within is what matters. This is also one of the reasons why our diet plays such an important role in the health of our hair and nails. What should we be eating?
