The Healthy Hair Diet
Can you eat your way to great-looking hair?
Turns out you can! There are a variety of foods that can actually help keep your hair strong and healthy, helping you achieve the long, luscious locks of your dreams... naturally.
One of the main components of stronger, longer hair is biotin: the protein which nourishes your roots and encourages speedy hair growth. Introducing more biotin into your diet can completely change the look and feel of your hair, ensuring optimum growth and any damage, repaired.
Biotin packed foods include egg yolk, salmon, nuts and seeds, so adding these to your diet will contribute to healthier looking hair!
But these are the foods you maybe didn't expect to read about...
Yes, even delicious avocados can help keep your strands shining! They’re full of healthy fats and nourishing vitamins which can encourage strong and shiny hair growth. It’s a win-win!
Top tip: don’t go for the reduced fat version! You’re going to need the thick, protein-rich yoghurt to really help your hair. Greek yogurt is rich in vitamin B5, and helps to increase the blood flow to your scalp, to ensure your hair is healthy from the root, down.
Our bodies don’t actually produce omega-3, but this fatty acid is amazing for your hair. It works as an anti-inflammatory, and inflammation can often cause hair loss in the body. If your scalp is dry or uncomfortable, chances are your hair growth won’t be as healthy as it could be. So get some salmon in your diet to nourish your scalp!
Essentially, any protein-rich lean meats are great for encouraging healthy hair growth. When we have enough protein in our diet, it protects our hair from becoming weak, brittle and falling out.
Leafy greens, like spinach and bok choy, are packed with iron which helps increase the amount of ferritin in your blood. If you have low levels of ferritin, it can quickly cause hair loss, so ensuring you have enough of this in your diet can prevent hair loss and keep your locks strong and healthy.
Amongst improving your diet, there are a few other things you can do to really help keep your hair stronger than ever. One of the most effective and impressive natural ways to improve your hair health is to use Castor Oil. This nourishing oil is 100% natural and helps to support the keratin production in your body. This means that over time, it helps to improve the strength and growth of your hair, whilst also providing ultimate hydration without the weighty residue!
All you have to do is apply the Castor Oil onto damp hair, ensuring you massage it into your roots before washing it out around 15-20 minutes later.
And you can even use it on your eye lashes and eye brows! Use a clean mascara brush and apply after showering.
