We all want healthy, beautiful, thick shiny hair!
But did you know that what you eat can play a big role to how your hair looks and feels? Simple dietary changes can prevent distressing hair loss and thinning.
Artistic Director and Careologist Elaine says “Just like our skin our hair is an outward sign of how healthy we are on the inside and by adding some of the following foods can help with hair health and growth”. She says that hair loss can be down to hormonal changes, a medical condition, stress or nutritional deficiencies and by adding some of the right foods and eating a balanced diet can help with the issue.
Just two medium slices of mango per day can strengthen hair tissue and promotes its growth.
Foods derived from Soy, such as edamame beans are said to inhibit the formation of the DHT hormone which is believed to contribute to hair loss.
Full of protein, eggs help to boost collagen production, reducing hair breakage, the addition of eggs in the diet up to 4 times per week and help considerably.
Iron and amino acid L-lysine found in kelp directly affect hair growth. Both are richly found in Kelp and a deficiency in both can contribute to hair loss.
High in Omega-3, flaxseed helps to nourish hair preventing it from getting dry and brittle. Adding 1 teaspoon per day can significantly help.
Protein rich seeds provide zinc, supporting cellular reproduction and enhances immunity, leading to hair growth.
Naturally high in collagen-boosting vitamin c, berries aid absorption of iron. Vitamin C boosts scalp circulation, while its anti-oxidant action protects follicles from free radical damage.
Creamy avocados supply vitamin E, which increases oxygen uptake and improves circulation to the scalp to promote healthy hair growth.
Leafy greens promote the production of keratin a protein that strengthens hair follicles.
