As much as you invest in every premium product lining the shelves, what you put in your mouth also matters when it comes to a healthy mane. Nutrition might be an often-overlooked feature in haircare, but thankfully it’s pretty easy to understand – and delicious to put into practice! These are the foods types to focus on to guarantee salon-perfect hair.
Your hair is pretty much made up entirely of protein, especially keratin, so it’s one of the most essential nutrients out there for healthy locks. A lack of protein in the diet can lead to hair loss and generally dull, thin, lifeless hair. Get your daily dose from red meat, poultry and seafood, and for the vegetarians, make sure you’re eating plenty of nuts, beans and soy.
This group of vitamins – B6, B12 and most importantly, biotin – combats hair loss and male balding. They are vital for the synthesis of many other nutrients in the body and help our cells turn these nutrients into usable energy. Foods rich in vitamin B include dairy, dark leafy green vegetables, and proteins like salmon and turkey.
Not just for flu season, this vitamin promotes healthy cells by preventing damage and encouraging collagen production. This collagen gives your hair mega-stretching properties and supports the protein structure. Foods rich in vitamin C include citrus fruit, such as oranges and grapefruits, and dark green leafy vegetables, such as broccoli and spinach.
This mineral is important for supplying oxygen to red blood cells, so naturally it’s important for keeping your scalp and hair follicles in great shape. Blood circulates better in the cells, which stimulate hair growth and overall hair health. Foods rich in iron include organ meats like liver, legumes such as beans and lentils, dark green leafy vegetables and fortified cereals.
If you suspect you might be suffering from a nutritional deficiency, it’s always a good idea to speak to a physician or pharmacist who’ll be able to provide a supplement to restore balance. It’s also a good idea to speak to your stylist for a few product recommendations that can help keep your locks healthy while you work on improving your nutrition.
