Eating Your Way to Healthy Hair

Eating Your Way to Healthy Hair

Bride or not, we all want to have beautiful and healthy hair! As all doctors and nutritionists say, "you are what you eat." And believe it or not, what you eat has everything to do with having healthy hair. Here are a few foods that will help you restore your hair's health in no time…

Fish:  Fish is high in omega-3s and vitamin D, especially salmon, which helps stop hair loss. Salmon is also a great source for iron, which is the main reason behind hair loss.

Lean Meats and Red Meats:  Chicken and red meat are a great source for protein and iron. Our hair is made out of protein called Keratin so it's important to have a proper amount of meat in your diet.

Pumpkin Seeds: Pumpkin seeds are a great source of omega 3, omega 6 and zinc, which are all important for your hair’s health.

Nuts: Cashews, almonds, Brazilian nuts and pecans will make your hair thick and shiny! They have zinc and omega 3, and they make your scalp healthier.

Leafy Greens and Vegetables: Vegetables and dark green leafs are a high source of Vitamins A and C which help moisturize your hair and give it shine.

Eggs: Deficiency in B vitamins is a main reason behind hair loss. Eggs are rich in biotin and B12.

Water: Water does not only keep your body hydrated, but also hydrates your hair.

Beans: Kidney beans and lentils, along with many other kinds of beans, provide your hair with protein, iron, zinc and biotin. Beans also help with hair growth.

Low-fat Dairy Products: Low-fat milk, yoghurt and cheese are great for your hair, as they are a great source of calcium.

Seaweed: Iodine, iron, calcium, magnesium, niacin, zinc, sodium and potassium are all nutrients found in seaweed, which has the ability to lessen grey hair and expel toxins from the body.
