If you eat a healthy diet, you will grow stronger and healthier cells throughout your entire body – this includes your hair! All it takes is a few adjustments, and you’ll have beautiful, shiny, healthier hair in no time! Try these top foods this week and notice the difference:
Protein promotes growth and keeps your hair nice and strong. Inadequate protein, or low quality protein, can lead to weak brittle hair, and a major protein deficiency can result in loss of hair color. Some great sources of animal protein are organic chicken, organic eggs, and wild salmon. (Salmon also provides omega-3s, which increase shine dramatically!)
2. Dark Leafy Greens:
The glorious shine in your hair is a result of sebum, the oily substance secreted by your hair follicles. To produce enough sebum, your body needs adequate amounts of vitamins A and C. These are both found in abundance in dark leafy greens. Some great examples are kale, spinach, chard, and collard greens. Dark green vegetables also provide iron and calcium, minerals that encourage hair growth.
Beans such as lentils, navy beans, kidney beans, black beans, etc. provide plenty of protein to promote hair growth, while also providing ample iron, zinc, and biotin (biotin deficiencies can result in brittle hair). Mix and match these lovely legumes to give your hair added strength and increased length.
The best bet for keeping your hair healthy and beautiful is to include a variety of high-quality fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds in your diet, alongside moderate amounts of clean protein and dairy. Your hair will thank you, as will your body!
