The Healthy Hair Care Diet: Try These 5 Foods, Northeast Jefferson, Colorado

Nutrition can make a big difference when it comes to maintaining healthy hair. Fantastic Sams Cut & Color has the hair care diet tips you need make your locks more luscious than ever. Here, they offer expert insight on foods with the ideal balance of vitamins and minerals needed for a healthy head of hair.

5 Foods For Healthy Hair Care

Protein

Since hair is made of protein, it’s also an essential dietary building block for gleaming tresses. Without sufficient protein, your hair can weaken, turning dry and brittle. Lean protein like chicken, turkey, and fish is a great option, but you can also get protein from legumes and nuts.

Iron

If you suffer from anemia—a lack of iron—your hair will reflect it. A lack of iron can disrupt your body’s supply of nutrients to the hair follicles, impacting hair growth and health. Make sure you’re getting enough iron by consuming animal products like red meat and chicken. Don’t eat meat? Veggie options include lentils, broccoli, and leafy greens like spinach and kale.

Omega-3

hair careOmega-3 fatty acids are found in the cells that line the scalp and provide the oils required to keep your hair hydrated. Since your body is unable to produce its own Omega-3’s, you need to rely on getting these fatty acids through your food. Indulge in avocados, walnuts, and oily fishes like salmon and trout to get your fill.

Biotin

A lack of biotin is associated with brittle hair, and can even result in hair loss. Make sure you’re getting enough of this water-soluble B vitamin by eating whole grain products. You can also get a biotin kick from liver, egg yolks, and yeast foodstuffs.

Vitamin E

Sun can damage your hair in the same way it can damage your skin. A rich supply of vitamin E in the body will help protect your hair against the sun’s harmful rays. Include nuts—which are packed with vitamin E, zinc and selenium—in your healthy hair care diet.
