While using the right products to maintain your mane is step number one for healthier hair, your diet also plays a substantial role. When it comes to foods that are sure to nourish and replenish, we’ve done the research so that you don’t have to. Here are our recommendations to add to your meal plan.

 

Avocado

 

Avocado is rich in healthy fats, which instantly nourishes hair and safeguards it from dryness.

 

Berries

 

Berries boast lots of anti-oxidants which have the potential to protect hair from damage and may also encourage hair growth.

 

Nuts

Some nuts, like Brazil nuts, contain selenium – an essential mineral for scalp health. A healthy scalp equals healthy hair!

While using the right products to maintain your mane is step number one for healthier hair, your diet also plays a substantial role.

Flaxseed

 

Flaxseed aids in moisturisation as it contain omega-3 fatty acids. 

 

Salmon

 

Salmon has been said to help to strengthen hair. This is because it’s chock-full of protein, which makes up a good portion of our locks, and also omega-3 fatty acids, which boost shine and softness.

 

Sweet peppers

Sweet peppers are full of Vitamin C. There is evidence that Vitamin C supports hair growth due to the fact that it promotes collagen production. Did you know that a sweet pepper contains five times the amount of Vitamin C as an orange?

 

Carrots

 

Most people don’t know that carrots have the potential to thicken hair over time thanks to their beta-carotene content. This plant pigment protects each strand from external elements, such as pollution, that can cause them to break or thin.  

So, there you have it. Could it be any easier to eat your way to healthier hair? We think not. Enjoy!
