Silica & Healthy Hair

Diet plays a major part in maintaining healthy hair, providing the necessary nutrients and minerals for optimum growth. When it comes to essential nutrients and minerals for healthy hair, the common ones that come to mind will probably be B-vitamins, omega-3 or zinc. There’s one lesser known mineral, silica, that also plays a key part in achieving healthy hair and managing hair loss.

Silica, also known as silicon dioxide, is a mineral that our bodies need to operate efficiently. It is needed in collagen production, which in turn improves circulation of nutrients by strengthening the capillaries supply the hair shaft.

This mineral is the second most abundant element on Earth and the third most abundant trace element in our bodies. Due to its abundance, deficiency in this mineral is rare. And one of the tell-tale signs of silica deficiency is soft and brittle nails.

More studies recently have focused on the benefits and importance of silica in healthy hair growth.

Collagen Production

Silica is essential in collagen synthesis. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the animal kingdom and is what makes our bodies, including our skin, hair and nails, strong, resilient and supple.

Improves Circulation

This mineral helps to strengthen the vessels and improve circulation, which in turn can stimulate and encourage hair growth.

Smoothens Cuticles

When hair follicles are standing up or pointing every which way, it leads to dull hair that’s brittle and prone to damage. Providing the follicles with silica allows them to flatten out as they’re meant to, giving the hair they produce a healthy shine.

Balances pH Levels

Due to its alkalizing property, silica can help to neutralise excess acid in the body. Maintaining a neutral pH balance is important to every aspect of health, from digestion to the immune system. A supplement can help improve energy levels and fight off disease more quickly.

Balances Hormones

Hormonal changes is a common factor for hair problems like hair loss. A healthy influx of the right trace minerals helps naturally balance estrogen and testosterone production, staving off hair loss.

Though a deficiency in silica is highly unlikely and uncommon, since it can be found in a wide variety of food, silica deficiency can lead to dry and brittle hair.

Silica can be found in most fruits like apples and bananas, most whole-grain food and raisins. So we recommend before you jump into supplements, a balanced diet is a much better approach. Do consult your doctor or nutritionist when in doubt.

When dealing with any hair conditions, it’s best to get a deep analysis of the hair and scalp to determine or rule out any factors, in order to get the appropriate treatments. Book your Free Scalp Analysis and Consultation here.
