Taking sulphur supplements is a great idea! Known for many years to help with beauty, sulphur can be purchased from any good health food shop. It is a non-metallic element and can be found in eggs, garlic and onions in small but concentrated forms.
Alhtough it is linked to the functioning of the nervous system and metabolism, its beauty benefits are what we are interested in on this site! It plays a role in the synthesis of collagen, the elastic substance in our skin. It is also a vital part of keratin, the protein responsible for healthy nails, skin and hair. It's also a great shield for pollution and so provides a barrier to ageing when taken internally.
Beauty secret: Take sulphur to help your nails, skin and hair
Hair seems to love this mineral applied topically too. I don’t advocate the old fashion technique of chopping up onion in brandy and marinading for 2 weeks to produce a sulphur rich solution that is then applied to the scalp to encourage healthy hair growth.
Instead, all you need to do is to buy liquid sulphur which you can then apply to the scalp as a hair rub. Once or twice a week should help strengthen your follicles. It's important to look for organic sulphur as this product is easily absorbed and doesn't smell bad. Sulphur flowers or inorganic sulphur, on the other hand, will give you a bad smell if you consume them!
