Remember when we thought that all you need is a good sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner to keep your hair in tip-top shape? Well, the tides have changed, and more than ever before, scientists are finding that the foods we eat have a much bigger impact on the health of our hair, skin, and nails than we once believed. A healthy head of hair starts with what you put in your body. A balanced variety of whole foods, abundant in vitamins and minerals, can make you feel great from the inside out. You will see healthier and stronger hair when you include the following eight foods in your diet:
Bonus: Here’s one more tip that you can do to increase your hair health:
Mix about a 50/50 ratio of apple cider vinegar to water and apply to your hair before, after, and occasionally in place of shampooing (the scent will disappear once your hair dries). Doing this on a weekly basis will give you both incredible shine and volume.
Eating a diet rich in the vegetables and proteins listed above is one of the most effective ways of keeping your hair incredibly healthy (and your skin and nails too!). Try it out for a week or two and let us know how shiny your hair is after! Opt for at least 3-4 servings of vegetables a day. If your dinner plate looks like a rainbow, you’re doing it right. Bon Appetit!
