A shiny mane gives your confidence a boost. Before you go out flaunting your tresses, make sure your hair is healthy. The best way to achieve this is with a balanced diet one that gives you all the nutrients you need. After all, you are what you eat.
Eat your veggies
We’ve been hearing this from our parents all our lives. Shop for vegetables like you shop for candy. Choose colorful ones, green, yellow, orange, and so on. Spinach is a good source of iron. Iron deficiency can lead to hair thinning and hair loss. Other green vegetables like lettuce, peas, green beans, cucumbers, green peppers and celery are also rich in folic acid, vitamin C, and iron hence they help in enhancing the growth of healthy hair.
Orange and yellow vegetables like carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, sweet corn, and tomatoes are excellent sources of beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, flavonoids, lycopene, potassium, and vitamin C.
Vegetables should be eaten daily.
Fruits for thought
There is a dark pigmentation in berries that comes from healthy bioflavonoids which are rich in vitamin C. They also contain antioxidants that increase circulation to the scalp and promote hair growth. So you better learn to love raspberries, cranberries and blueberries because they are a must if you want gorgeous locks.
Citrus fruits like oranges, grape fruits and lime contain vitamin B, which helps lower cholesterol, breaks down fat, stops hair thinning and hair loss. Avocados are an excellent source of vitamin E, which is important for healthy hair growth. They are also a great source of healthy fats.
