Why You Need to Nourish Your Hair From the Inside Out

Healthier Hair From the Inside Out – Why Your Diet Matters

Have you ever found yourself doom-scrolling in search of the holy grail of good hair? Maybe you’re doing it right now? Let me save you a whole lot of time and money with a simple tip – thick, bouncy, healthy hair starts with nourishing your hair from the inside out. 

Scientific studies1 show2 that thinning, dry, or brittle hair is a message from your body that you’re not getting enough of the right vitamins and minerals. Your first grey hairs could be telling you the same thing. That’s because your hair reflects your overall health and well-being. 

As a stylist for over 20 years and a trained Trichologist (haircare expert), I know that your lifestyle shows up in your hair. It’s not just your styling habits, your eating habits matter too. That’s why our first Arey product was our nutritional supplement Not Today, Grey. We did the research so you don’t have to – because getting the right nourishment for youthful, healthy hair shouldn’t have to be hard work.

The Best Nutrition For Your Healthiest Hair

The first thing to know about your hair health is that all your hair you can see is technically dead. That’s right, your hair strands are lifeless tubes of protein. The living part of your locks begins under your scalp skin in your hair follicle. Inside each follicle is your hair bulb which creates new living hair from cells fed by blood vessels. 



When I look at a client’s hair under magnification, I can see that each individual filament (strand) is a thick tube-like structure. That’s your hair shaft and it’s made out of keratin - a kind of protein that’s also important for the health and strength of your nails and skin. Your hair follicles are like tiny factories that need the right fuel to produce healthy hair. 



A well-balanced diet is essential for your hair health and your overall health but other factors may also be contributing to your bad hair days. If you are experiencing sudden hair loss or thinning, you should seek advice from a healthcare professional.

The Easiest Way to Deeply Nourish Your Hair

The best nourishment for your hair comes from the inside – from the vitamins, minerals, and protein that you eat. But the perfect diet isn’t always possible. In fact, it can be a lot like hard work. That’s why we created our daily hair health supplement Not Today, Grey to easily fill in the gaps that a normal lifestyle can leave in your diet.


Not Today, Grey boosts your hair growth, thickness, and health and proactively delays grey hair with these science-backed ingredients: 

To put it into perspective, you’d have to eat all these superfoods every day to match a daily dose of Arey Not Today, Grey


For most of us, this kind of diet is not desirable or even possible. The good news is that there's no need to feed yourself enough to fuel an entire football team when you can deeply nourish your hair by taking Not Today, Grey. Arey's proactive supplement provides those nutrients in a much more efficient way.



Nourish Your Hair From the Inside Out and the Outside In

Your scalp is the starting point for healthy hair but it’s also where your brand-new hair can experience damage when it emerges from your follicles. Pollution, UV rays from the sun, secondhand smoke, and buildup can all affect your hair and scalp health. 


Here are two easy steps to rebalance your scalp
and nourish your hair:

  • Step 1: Use a scalp scrub: a regular gentle detox with a scalp exfoliant like Scrub can clear buildup that may affect healthy hair growth. Scrub also prepares your scalp to benefit from topical treatments like To The Root serum.

  • Step 2: Nourish your roots: using a serum like To The Root delivers clean ingredients directly to your follicles to promote thicker, fuller, healthier hair. 

Like anything you apply to your face, you want to make sure your haircare is free from potentially irritating ingredients. That’s why all Arey haircare is clean, vegan, cruelty-free, and free from artificial fragrances, gluten, parabens, phthalates, and formaldehyde. To the Root is so lightweight and oil-free that I also use it on my facial hair to slow the greys in my beard.

Not ready for a grey beard? Here’s everything you need to know. 



What you can expect from using The System:

  • 1-2 months: healthier scalp & increased volume
  • 2-3 months: fuller, smoother, more vibrant hair
  • 3+ months: less grey hair growth & possible re-pigmentation

      Heal Your Hair With Clean, Proactive Haircare

      Proactive haircare means getting ahead of a problem before it starts. That means you should see great results from nourishing your hair, but they’re not going to be instant. Your hair grows about half an inch a month so it takes almost a month for new growth to appear from out of your follicles. You should start to see healthier, thicker hair and fewer grey hairs in about 3–6 months. 



      Getting proactive about your hair health also means you can prevent new damage to your existing hair. So if you’re seeing frizz, dryness, and split ends, it might be time to change up your styling habits.

      Most hair damage is caused by heat styling. It can be a frustrating cycle – the more you heat style, the more damage you cause, and the more heat you need to see the same results. Don’t worry, there’s no need to cut the cord completely, you can prevent future damage and reduce the appearance of split ends by using a heat protectant like Mend



      What you can expect from using Mend:

      • Immediately: Easier detangling and increased moisture
      • When heat styling: Protection from hair heat damage
      • Ongoingly: Improved elasticity and decreased breakage
