Your hair is what you eat! To keep it strong, shiny, and healthy, start by including these superfoods in your daily diet:
Want strong, shiny hair? Look no further than the tomato. These healthy fruits (or vegetables, depending on who you ask) are packed with vitamin A and iron, two nutrients responsible for your hair’s growth and luster.
We all know that milk helps grow strong bones, but did you know that one cup of low-fat yogurt has more calcium than its milk equivalent? This mineral is essential for hair growth and hair loss prevention; luckily, getting it is as easy as packing a yogurt cup with your lunch.
These nuts are the holy grail of haircare! The high content of zinc, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin E in almonds are great for keeping your hair glossy, thick, hydrated, and strong.
The more oxygen you have flowing to your scalp, the more nutrients your roots, and consequently, your hair, will get. The B vitamins in green beans are just the thing your body needs to ensure that enough oxygen is being carried to the top of your head.
This tasty, tropical fruit not only makes a delicious smoothie, but its rich vitamin C content will also treat your hair right. Vitamin C plays a big role in creating collagen, a protein that gives your hair structure. It also helps your body absorb iron, which as you learned earlier, is critical to your hair’s growth. If you can’t find mangoes in your area, raspberries are another fruit loaded with vitamin C.
Antioxidants aren’t the only benefits of these little berries; the vitamin B complex contained in this fruit help with hair growth and also improve the flow of oxygen – and therefore nutrients – to the scalp.
