A poor diet can not only increase your waistline but can also lead to a loss of hair. As well as including high levels of protein in your diet there are other nutrients such as iron and vitamin C that can give you healthy hair.
Eggs – Protein is vital for healthy hair and eggs are a quick and easy source. Cooked and ready to eat in just a few minutes, eggs are a great way to get protein, zinc and iron all in one hit.
Walnuts – Although most fish are normally a great source of omega 3, they’re not to everyone’s liking. Walnuts are the only nut type with the same fatty acids and they also have vitamin E and biotin, which help protect cells from damage, and copper which keeps your hair colour rich.
Blueberries – For a healthy head of hair you need to have good blood circulation, something that’s improved with a full vitamin C intake. As well as blueberries, other fruit like kiwis, oranges and strawberries can help.
Spinach – Among other things, including vitamin C, spinach is high in iron. This helps the bloodstream carry oxygen, meaning your hair gets a healthy supply. As well as spinach, kale and broccoli are also high in iron.
Lentils – If you’re looking for a new way to increase your intake of protein try adding lentils, beans and pulses to your diet. As well as protein, lentils have high levels of iron, zinc and biotin.
