In need of bouncy and glossy hair? If so, we highly recommend you eat your way to it! Unhealthy eating might have a way of biting us in the ass, and maybe all over. Confused? Let me tell you how necessary it is to eat your way to a nourished body. Your hair, skin, nails, even your bowels (I know, gross mention) probably count on it! So, I’m going to share something with you. My hair had been on a downward slope for a while last year. Needless to say, I was not pleased. I mean who would be, right? That’s when I started feeding my hair. Like, literally feeding! Here are the 5 super, a.k.a life changing, foods your hair needs!
We all know what we should start our day with: eggs! Why? They’re a great source of omega-3s. The yolk also contains biotin which has many functions for healthy body and hair. However, it isn’t the egg white that contains the protein as much as the yolk does. So, eat the entire egg once a day for a healthier you.
Get down to some fishy business and make yourself a salmon lover. Trust me, it might smell bad in the start but the final result is amazing! Fish is loaded with vitamin D and protein. It also contains omega-3 fatty acids. For strong hair and hair growth. You know what you got to add to your diet now.
P.S – Victoria Beckham includes fish in her meal everyday!
Ditch the ‘Nut’ella and opt for healthier assortment of nuts. Almonds! These nuts will make your hair grow faster and thicker due to their high biotin content. Biotin is a vitamin of the B complex family. It helps your body produce more energy. Have a fist full of them everyday for about 2 to 3 months and you’ll notice a difference.
We know why Popeye ate it, but we’ll take gorgeous hair over his muscles any day. And by eating your greens, you can achieve exactly that! Spinach is a direct source of vitamins B, C, and E, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids (Phew!). Yup it’s a whole lot of nutrients and antioxidants for your hair.
Citrus-y fruits like oranges, lime and blueberries have a high quota of Vitamin C. Important for cell and tissue repair, it also strengthens your immune system. If you include enough vitamin C in your diet you’ll see lustrous hair in no time!
P.S – You can include lime in a DIY, like this one!
Guys, I cannot stress enough how important it is to feed yourself with the right stuff. This indirectly feeds your hair, skin, and all parts of your body. So, eat your way to a healthier you!
