The Best Foods To Get Healthy Hair
When we follow a healthy, balanced eating plan, we get hair that is lustrous shiny and resilient.
It is a common belief that extremely low protein diets may result in hair loss. If you are not consuming enough protein in your diet, your hair is likely to become dry, brittle and weak. Chicken, fish and dairy products are excellent sources of protein.
Iron and zinc help hair to grow and by adding lots of green leafy vegetables and sweet juicy fruits into your diet, your can ensure your hair will be getting its essential nutrients.
Nuts and legumes such as fresh coconut is also considered excellent ‘hair foods’ – sprinkle grated coconut over salads, diced fresh fruit, or rice.
Certain spices such as cumin, turmeric and black pepper not only add flavour to your food, but they also provide nourishment for your hair. Fill up your plate with healthy foods for gorgeous healthy locks (and remember to book into Hairven Hair Salons for your regular trim!)
