Foods for Beautiful Healthy Hair

Blueberries, Strawberries, Kiwi, Tomatoes

  • Rich in Vitamin C
  • Helps Blood Circulation
  • Nourishes Small Vessels that feed the hair follicles

Exotic fruits may have lots of qualities, but when it comes to vitamin C, it is difficult to top this nutritional fruit.  Vitamin C is very important for blood circulation to the scalp and supports the small blood vessels that feed your hair. Too little C in your diet can eventually cause your hair to break.

Lentils, Kidney Beans, Soy Beans

  • Rich in Protein
  • Iron, Zinc and Biotin (protects from DNA damage)
  • Great nutritional element

Lentils are really full of protein, iron, zinc, and even biotin, and this makes them a great nutritional element for both vegetarians and those who eat meat and every thing else.

Salmon, Mackerel, Sardines, Trout, Avocado, Pumpkin Seeds

  • Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids
  • Vitamin D and Proteins

The flesh of this pink delicious fish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D and different proteins: all key elements to have vibrant hair.  Our body can’t make these fatty acids by itself, but these are really needed to grow hair.  A tiny percentage of the hair shaft is made up of these fatty acids, which are also located in the cell membranes in the skin of our scalp.  Introducing salmon in your diet can help integrating these beneficial acids in our body, helping our hair to grow healthier.

Spinach, Kale, Broccoli, Swiss Chard, Dark Leafy Vegetables

  • Contains folate, beta carotene
  • Rich in Iron and Vitamin C
  • Keep hair follicles healthy
  • Promote blood circulation

Spinach, among the other minerals and elements, contains folate, beta carotene, a good source of iron, and lots of vitamin C that I have just mentioned: these factors contribute to keep the hair follicles healthy and promote blood flow.

Walnuts, Walnut Oil in Salad

  • Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids
  • Vitamin E and Biotin (protects from DNA damage)
  • Contains copper to keep hair shining

Walnuts are the only type of nut that have a decent amount of omega-3 fatty acids, but also the other nuts they have of course.  They’re also rich in vitamin E and biotin, which helps protect our cells from DNA damage.  Biotin is extremely important for our hair, shafts and too little of it can lead to hair thinning.  These nuts contain also the mineral copper, which helps maintain the natural color of our hair.
