There are a lot of different kinds of fruits, vegetables and other foods that promote naturally beautiful and healthy hair.
You must have heard a lot of tips about what you can do to make your hair beautiful from the outside but what you eat really does make a difference. Read on for some tips that will help your hair become healthy from the inside out.
First of all you need to get foods that are rich in protein because our hair is primarily made out of protein. Poultry, fish beans, eggs, yogurt, nuts, seeds and milk are rich in protein. Eating this type of food that contains protein accelerates your hair growth.
Whereas vegetables and fruits that are rich in nutrients that promote faster hair growth are kiwi, berries, spinach, broccoli, green beans and cabbage. So you should include more fruits and vegetables in your hair diet. This type of food will make your hair much healthier by maximizing your hair potential.
Fish like salmon and other cold water fish are high in omega 3 fatty acids, b12 and iron. Your body can’t produce omega 3 fatty acids on its own but still needs it for healthy hair. So by eating foods that contain these nutrients you do your body a favor.
Beans such as kidney beans provide protein, iron, zinc and biotin. Basically all of the things that promote faster hair growth. Zinc is involved in tissue growth which means that zinc deficiency can lead to hair fall and dandruff. So you should stock up on food that consists of zinc to get rid of hair fall and dandruff.
Nuts are filled with variety of minerals which are essential for healthy hair. For example almonds are high in magnesium, Brazil nuts are full of selenium and walnuts are high in omega 3 fatty acids and cashews and pecans are high in zinc.
Sweet potatoes, butternuts and carrots are not only high in vitamins but also help protect your hair from damaging sun rays and maintain the natural oils in your scalp. They are rich in vitamin a that promotes a healthy scalp.
Green vegetables such as broccoli and spinach consist of iron, calcium and essential omega 3 fatty acids. They are also high in vitamin c which helps our scalp to produce sebum. Sebum is natural oil that moisturizes your hair automatically.
Meat, low fat dairy and soy products are all high in protein which is an essential nutrient for your hair.
You need biotin for healthy hair but you don’t necessarily need to take it as a supplement because our bodies create natural biotin and foods also have biotin in them like peanuts, almonds and swiss chard.
Vitamin B is very essential as it brings red blood cells and nutrients to our scalp so we need that for healthy hair. Chickpeas, oats and wild salmon are all great choices for vitamin c.
