Your health is the most important thing that you should maintain. Not your looks, not your size but your health because maintaining your health leads to everything else being maintained. Maintaining your health literally starts with what you put in your body. That’s right the foods you eat can and will impact your body and your hair. I have spoken with many nutritionist who have sited the best foods for getting healthy hair.
Try eating salmon, trout or other fishes in Omega-3 fatty acids because these foods are high in protein and vitamin D, which are both good foods for stronger hair.
Walnuts are always a good choice when trying to maintain healthy hair because of Omega-3 fatty acids, biotin, vitamin E and copper, which helps keep your natural hair looking its best.
Allergic to nuts? Then try sweet potatoes because not only are they good with butter, but they are a good source of beta carotene an antioxidant that turns into vitamin A as well as reduces some scalp irritations. If you are not too fond of sweet potatoes try carrots, some melons and apricots.
Oysters are a good source of zinc which helps with your protein intake and reduces the chances of your losing your hair, eyelashes and getting dry, flaky scalp. So just grab an oyster and some hot sauce and let it slide down your throat as it works its way to your scalp.
Who doesn’t like eggs? Well if you want healthier hair then the best and least expensive source of protein to maintain healthy hair are eggs. Eggs are full of zinc, selenium, sulfur and iron which helps with getting oxygen to your hair follicles.
If Popeye loved spinach and he had no hair then it shouldn’t be a problem for you to grab some to make sure the iron, beta carotene, folate and vitamin C stay in your diet to keep you hair healthy. Don’t like it, then eat broccoli or kale.
Beans such as lentils, kidney beans and soybeans are also excellent for healthy hair because they have a lot of protein, iron, zinc and biotin. This choice is also a good choice for my vegetarians and vegans who want to maintain their hair without eating meat.
We all know that Greek yogurt is the new thing but did you know that it is packed with B5 which is used in some products for a shiner head of hair. And let’s not forget vitamin D which does a body good.
You can’t go wrong with berries because they are often packed with vitamin C which helps circulate blood to the scalp. Most berries are labeled super fruits for the amount of active natural ingredients they contain.
These are just a few foods that will help you maintain your hair, reduce hair loss and keep your scalp from becoming dry, flaky and irritable. If you have any allergies to these foods consult your doctor to make sure you are consuming what’s right for you. #thelookthelife
