Better looking hair can begin with your next meal. The nutrients you eat today help fortify your hair follicles, starting from the scalp where hair strands form. Here are some foods that will help your hair:
~ Walnuts are a good source of biotin and vitamin e. Biotin and vitamin e protect your hair from sunlight, which keeps your hair color lavish and glossy.
~ Oysters contain zinc, without consuming enough zinc you may experience hair loss and your scalp will become dry and flaky. Oysters are also a good boost for protein.
~ Another great source of protein comes from eating eggs. You also gain four key minerals your hair needs from eating eggs: zinc, selenium, sulfur, and iron!
~ Blueberries are a super fruit when it comes to hair care. Blueberries are high in Vitamin C which is critical for circulation to the scalp and supports the tiny blood vessels that feed your hair follicles. Too little vitamin C leads to hair breakage.
~ Poultry keeps hair strong and plentiful with it’s zinc, iron, and B vitamins.
~ Eating salmon brings out strong hair because it is rich in protein and vitamin D. Proteins are necessary for tissue repair and for the construction of new tissue. Every cell needs protein to maintain its life. Protein is also the primary substance used to “replace” worn out or dead cells. Your muscles, hair, nails, skin, and eyes are made of protein. Those with thinning hair and too many wrinkles for your age, may lack protein.
You have much more control over your hair than you think, adding these foods into your protein-rich diet will give it the factors it needs to be strong and healthy!
