Foods to eat to improve your hair?

For beautiful hair, skin and nails you should eat:

  • Protein
  • Essential fatty acids
  • Vitamins

Eggs are a great source of protein and biotin, two nutrients that may promote hair growth.

Fatty fish like salmon, herring and mackerel have nutrients that may promote hair growth. Another study found that taking a fish oil supplement significantly reduced hair loss and increased hair growth in women with thinning hair.

They are excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been linked to hair growth.

Your skin, hair, and nails are made of protein, so including good proteins in your diet can promote healthy cell production. You can swap the T-bone steak for these healthier alternatives:

  • Chicken
  • Lean meats
  • Legumes
  • Seafood
  • Eggs
  • Soybeans

Here’s where you can get the essential fatty acids you need in your diet:

  • Walnuts
  • Soybeans
  • Flaxseed
  • Cabbage
  • Seafood
  • Spinach

Avocados are delicious, nutritious and a great source of healthy fats. Nuts are tasty, convenient and contain a variety of nutrients that may promote hair growth.

What you eat can have a huge effect on the health of your hair.

A lack of the right nutrients including vitamins A, C, D and E, zinc, B vitamins, iron, biotin, protein and essential fatty acids may slow down hair growth or even cause hair loss.

Fortunately, correcting a deficiency in any of these nutrients may help treat hair loss and promote the rate of hair growth. As with other cells in your body, your hair is directly impacted by the food you eat. Without the correct balance of nutrients, hair will appear noticeably duller, thinner and more brittle over time – important vitamins and minerals like biotin, iron, zinc and Vitamin A all help to keep not just hair, but also our skin and nails healthy.
