Nutrition plays a key role in the health of our hair, scalp and hair follicles (where hair growth begins). We might not realize it, but our diet impacts the growth, strength and volume of our hair. Here are some foods that are particularly good for a healthy scalp and head of hair.
- Salmon for Shine: Along with other fish full of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, Salmon will help your hair grow and keep it shiny and full.
- Spinach or Kale to Keep it Hydrated: Dark leafy green vegetables that contain a combination of nutrients including Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Folate, Iron and Beta Carotene help keep your hair moisturized so it’s less likely to break.
- Cinnamon for Circulation: Getting your blood flowing brings nutrients and oxygen to your hair follicles, stimulating hair growth.
- Eggs for Growth: As a good source of biotin, a mineral thought to help boost hair growth, eggs may be beneficial to help hair growth.
A well-rounded diet can help promote healthy hair growth and prevent hair damage including dryness, dullness, dandruff and a tendency to break.
