Having healthy hair starts with you. If you don’t have the right vitamin and nutrient intake from your foods, you may experience hair loss or thinner, weaker hair. After doing some research we found some of the best foods for your hair (Thank you, Luxy Hair for the info!!)
A perfect side for any dinner is a salad. Just adding the darker, richer veggies (i.e. Spinach, Arugula, and Kale) you can boost your iron, vitamin c, carotene, and folate intake! This will help your hair stay naturally moisturized, keeping it from becoming brittle.
Another great lunch or dinner addition is sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes are perfect for someone with a sweet tooth! They contain beta carotene that our bodies convert into vitamin A, helping with hair growth itself.
Replacing your peanut butter with hazelnut butter has great added benefits! Hazelnut butter contains biotin (also known as B7) that promotes not only hair growth, but breaks down fats and amino acids! That’s a hair AND body benefit!
Need a power snack? Adding sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds to your trail mix will increase your iron intake (lack of iron causes hair loss!!), zinc, vitamin A, vitamin K, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin E (enhances blood flow/circulation which means a healthy scalp!). These delicious seeds can also be added to your power food salad at dinner time!
Last, but not least, is my personal favorite… Avocados!! (Guacamole, anyone??) This power food is jam packed with vitamins A, D, E, omega-9 fatty acids, and it full of the healthy fats (yes, fats CAN be healthy) that control blood sugar. Another double bonus for the hair and body! Avocados can be mixed, mashed, eaten raw, and any other way you can think of! Avocado oil extracts can also be added directly to the scalp and hair for added hair growth benefits!
Improve your hair (and body!) health with the help of these delicious snacks today!
