Watermelon Seed Kernels or Magaj, are full of proteins, iron, magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese – these nutrients are known to improve the quality of hair by strengthening and promoting hair growth.
Eating adequate protein is important for hair growth because hair follicles are made of mostly protein.
Zinc plays an important role in hair tissue growth and repair.
Iron helps boost circulation and carries oxygen to the hair’s roots, which helps hair to grow faster and longer.
Magnesium is essential in helping our body create protein, which helps with hair growth.
Copper is not only necessary to support hair colour, it’s also essential for maintaining the structure of the hair shaft.
Manganese in the seeds helps to prevent hair fall and damage.
