How Do You Fix Dry, Brittle Hair?
Three words, MSM Hair Treatment!
MSM is a source of organic Sulphur that can help to relieve many different health conditions (arthritis, allergies, Carpel tunnel are just some of these) and is also great to take daily to improve general well-being and increase energy.
It turns out among many of the fantastic benefits MSM has to offer helping repair and support hair is one of these.
To get a little technical MSM is needed for the synthesis of Collagen and is prevalent in Keratin, a tough protein substance needed for the health and maintenance of hair. In a nutshell, hair is made up of keratin, which is produced in the follicles in the outer layer of skin. As follicles produce new hair cells, old cells are being pushed out through the surface of the skin.
There has been research to show that MSM has helped with hair growth together with great results found when used on hair that has become dry and brittle from too many chemical hair treatments.
To receive the benefits MSM has to offer your hair there are two options. Take a daily dose internally (an average dose is one teaspoon) in a glass of water (warm water will help to dissolve the crystals quicker) which is what the research suggests for hair growth. Alternatively, in terms of chemically treated hair you can make a leave in hair treatment. You could essentially do both and receive benefits internally and topically also.
To make your own leave-in hair treatment simply mix 4 teaspoons of MSM into 250ml pure distilled water in a spray bottle and spritz onto the affected area daily. Hair should feel softer and stronger quickly.
MiSMo MSM is available in 440g and 850g quantities in both MSM Powder (Crystalised) and Distilled MSM. You can use this to make your own hair treatment and also take a daily dose yourself. As mentioned above MSM has many health benefits for a range of health conditions so it is a great supplement to start including into your routine if not just for the fantastic general health and well-being properties.
