HEALTHY DIET = HEALTHY HAIR!

We go to the salon for several reasons such as color, style, extensions, a trim, treatments to repair, moisturize and strengthen our hair. It is true that you can find anything you want in a good hair salon, but at same you must help yourself by including some natural solutions to your daily kitchen routine.

As you develop healthy eating habits for skincare or bodyweight, hair health has been linked to the foods you’re eating; including its strength and appearance. Healthy hair starts with each strand’s individual composition, which can directly be influenced by the nutrients you may (or may not) be consuming. https://www.pinterest.com/orensalonhair/food-for-hair/

In this blog we are going to mention our top beauty nutrients for healthy hair and where you can find them!!


PROTEIN

Hair is essentially made of protein, mostly one called keratin.It’s important to consume enough high-quality protein for healthy hair growth and strength. When you don’t get enough, your hair can become brittle, weak, or dry—and extremely low protein diets may even result in hair loss.

Where to find:

· Lean poultry for thickness (chicken, turkey), eggs, whey protein, greek yogurt (helps with blood flow to your scalp and hair growth), fish, legumes, and other healthy sources of proteins.


VITAMIN C


Vitamin C aids the absorption of iron in food, so it’s good to eat alongside iron-rich foods. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant and essential for collagen synthesis. Collagen strengthens the capillaries that supply the hair shafts as well as forming part of the hair protein itself.

Where to find:

· Blueberries, guava (protects hair from breakage), broccoli, kale, kiwi fruit, oranges, papaya, strawberries, and sweet potatoes (protects against dry, dull hair).


IRON


This one is very crucial because if deficient it will cause major hair loss. If a diet is lacking in iron, oxygen and adequate nutrients carried through the blood might not be delivered to the hair. This could lead to “shedding” or fragile locks. 

Where to find:

· Red meat, dark leafy greens, beans, whole grains, oats, cinnamon and nuts.


FATTY ACIDS AND ZINC


They help balance sebum (oil) production in the body. If your hair is often dry, you may benefit from additional essential fatty acids in your diet.

Where to find:

· Salmon (for shine, hydration and growth), walnuts (reduce inflammation in scalp and provides natural moisturizers in each follicle), chia, flax and hemps seeds.

· Oysters, crab, lobster and fortified cereals are sources rich in zinc.


VITAMIN B


B vitamins boost hair elasticity and strong growth. Not getting enough of one B vitamin in particular, biotin, has been linked to hair loss.

Where to find:

· Brown rice, quinoa, legumes, mushrooms.


Now that you are familiar with the fact that healthy eating equals healthy hair, make sure you stay healthy with these new options and ideas for meals from now on!
