The amazing benefits of Lycopene for hair
When it comes to treating hair loss problems, most of us have no idea that a nutrient as rich as Lycopene was hiding in plain sight, in our kitchen! Lycopene one of the most important nutrients for hair and skin can be found in many fruits and vegetables that we usually buy from the market without us even realising what treasure they hide inside, like watermelons, pink grapefruits, apricots, pink guavas, and tomatoes.
Lycopene, which is an antioxidant with high antiaging properties, can be primarily found in tomatoes, as these are the richest source of natural lycopene. And the good news is researchers have found a positive relation between Lycopene use and hair health. The most important thing when experiencing hair loss is to restore a good blood circulation. Poor blood circulation leads to an increase in hair loss because hair cannot fully receive nutrients. Lycopene plays a major role in improving blood flow and helping cell restoration, which is very beneficial for the health of the scalp. It also helps reduce inflammations and boosts the collagen production.
This nutrient used in hair treatments has a powerful antioxidant role and protects the hair from UV rays, keeping it from environmental damages, as well as reverse and neutralize the effect of harmful free radicals (like drying, breaking, and fading). With all these amazing benefits for hair and skin it’s no wonder best hair care and beauty products in the world use it as an ingredient.
