Nutrients for Healthy Hair

Nutrients for Healthy Hair

HAIR – my top 10

  1. Salmon – rich in omega-3 fatty acid, B12 and iron and great for scalp health
  2. Flaxseed – great if you don’t eat fish regularly, also rich in omega-3 fatty acid
  3. Dark green vegetables – Spinach and broccoli (vitamin A &C) produces sebum, an oily substance secreted by hair follicles to keep hair naturally conditioned
  4. Legumes (like lentils and other beans) are full of protein, iron, zinc and biotin – which a deficiency can result in brittle hair
  5. Nuts – brazil nuts contain selenium for a healthy scalp and walnuts contain alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid for natural conditioning of the hair
  6. Good protein – keratin (a type of protein) makes up each strand of hair so a diet rich in eggs, meat and fish will ensure the hair is able to grow strongly.
  7. Carrots – full of vitamin A for a healthy scalp
  8. Bananas – help strengthen the outer layer of your hair (cuticle)
  9. Iron – stimulates hair turnover and replenishment
  10. Stay fit, healthy and hydrated and see those long locks shine!
