Silicic Acid and Healthy Hair
Saturday, October 1st 2005
Hair, a symbol of beauty and female passion, is extremely sensitive. It reacts to the sun and wind and constant blow-drying, styling, dying and highlighting. Silicic acid is one of the essential elements for beautiful hair that is full of vitality.
Silicic acid nourishes to the roots
Even though hair is made from dead material, this does not mean that is not affected by external influences. The more strain the hair is put under, the more its structure is destroyed. The result is split ends and dull, unattractive hair. In the worst case, the hair starts to resemble a brush and cannot be combed.
Healthy hair needs to be well nourished
Silicic acid is one of the essential components which our bodies need to form healthy hair. A lack of silicic acid leads to dry, dull and brittle hair. Scientific studies have proved that loss of hair goes hand in hand with low levels of silicon. Taking Silicea Gel over a period of several months helps prevent this deficiency.
Hair care products put back the shine
Providing silicic acid via nutritional supplements is the most sure and effective way of having beautiful and healthy hair since it is only in this manner that it reaches the areas where it is actually needed in sufficient amounts.
Take a two to three month course of Silica Gel daily according to instructions. This helps promote hair growth and improves the hair's shine and strength.
