Who doesn’t want beautiful and healthy hair? Sure we all do!
I personally believe and it is true off course, that secret to gorgeous hair is not an expensive hair product or regular visits to salon. Still we try different hair care products to achieve those shiny hair goals, spend loads of money (which is hard earned!) to get healthy mane that you have always dreamed of. But, ever thought that expensive hair care products alone can’t help you live your dream.
Yes, let’s do an analysis right away. Your hair need nourishment from within the roots. Your hair need food too. If the basic, but mandatory nutrients, are missing from your diet then however hard you try and visit salons, nothing can’t help you meet those gorgeous hair goals.
Let’s get to the Biology of your hair to understand what they really need.
Building block of each of those hair strands is PROTEIN. To put in simple words I will say, your hair is made up of proteins. Food rich in protein will definitely help your hair to stay healthy. But, apart from protein, hair need other highly important nutrients too. For example, iron zinc, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B, vitamin c, biotin are necessary for healthy growth of your hair.
I have mentioned few foods below, which are necessary that they are present in your diet else be ready to face all those hair related issues and no expensive brand will be able to help you.
PROTEIN RICH FOOD: Eggs are one of the best natural source of protein. Hair is made up of protein. So include them in your daily diet so as to achieve those healthy hair goals. Ladies, add at least 23 grams of protein to your daily diet.
Other protein rich foods include nuts, soy, dairy products like milk, curd, cheese, oil-seeds, tofu, beans and pulses
Vitamin C :
Well, yes a dose of Vitamin C definitely helps to get lustrous hair. Vitamin C not only helps to absorb the iron but also aids in hair growth, hair pigmentation, promote hair tissue growth. Ultimately resulting in shinier hair.
Vitamin C sources include oranges, brussels sprouts, kale, red peppers, strawberries, lemon, guava, broccoli , grapefruit and many more.
OMEGA-3 FATTY ACID:
Need thick and nourished hair, then include omega-3 fatty acid rich food in your diet. Generally, nuts and seeds are a great source of omega-3 fatty acid.
You may also include walnuts, flax seeds, nuts, spinach, kale, almonds.
To avoid split ends or to get rid of them include vitamin B in your diet. Deficiency of Vitamin B complex can leads to split ends, grey hair, dandruff and poor hair growth.
Some Vitamin B rich sources are citrus fruits, whole grains, lentils, sunflower seeds, walnuts, soybeans, tomatoes, brown rice.
