We all want healthy-looking hair and collagen is one of the best supplements you can take for this. The main component of hair, about 95% of it, is the protein keratin. In order for the body to make keratin, amino acids (or building blocks of protein) are necessary. And that’s where collagen comes into play. Collagen also helps to prevent hair follicle damage and greying.
I’ve added additional protein powder because if you want strong, healthy hair you have to ingest adequate protein. You need a gram of protein per kilo of body weight. This smoothie provides you with 20-30 grams of protein.
- 1 scoop of coconut protein powder
- Handful of frozen blueberries
- 1 scoop/2 tbsp of collagen powder
- 1 cup of coconut milk
Pop all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
