Hello Everyone! Today I recorded my show that I do every Wednesday called Freeform Dreadlock Talk. I basically like to share my personal experience with you all from having my Freeform Dreadlocks for 18yrs now.
Today I talked about the importance of incorporating more fresh fruits and vegetables into your daily eating routine. I don't like to use the word diet. I once read a book that said that if you break down the word diet it is di- et. Like you die when you eat. May sound silly but that has been stuck in my brain ever since I read it. From my own personal experience I have found that the more fruits and vegetables I eat the better my dreadlocks look and feel. These foods feed and nourish your Freeform Dreadlocks from the inside out.
So all of the products that people buy to supposedly make their dreadlocks healthy can be damaging them instead. I think that it is important to first and foremost get your nutrition for your hair from the inside. Sure you can do tons of herbal rinses on your Freeform Dreadlocks with healing and nourishing herbs but if what most of what you put into your body is processed food the herbal rinses are a waste of time.
Like I mentioned in my show today the only meat that I am eating currently is fish. I also do use dairy and eggs when I cook and bake. I am learning to use the eggs and dairy in moderation.
I like to eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and I cook and prepare meals for my family and myself every night. It is a nice feeling to know exactly what is going into my food instead depending on restaurants to provide me with the proper nourishment.
Not only does the foods that you put into your body affect the health of your hair, so can stress. If you do not find the time to go outside and enjoy nature and breathe in natural air outside of air conditioning and unnatural heating your body ,mind,and soul can get totally depleted of energy. When you leak energy your body performs at a less than desirable way.
So here are my suggestion for all of those out there wanting to improve the health of your dreadlocks:
1. Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables everyday.
2. Drink fresh water all day.
3. Spend time in the sun
4. Sit with your back against a tree with your feet bare on Mother Earth
5. Go for walks and move your body to get circulation to your brain promoting healthy hair follicles.
6. Herbal Rinses instead of oils and conditioners.
