TIPS FOR HOW TO EAT FOR HEALTHIER HAIR: THE NUTRIENTS YOUR HAIR NEEDS
We all know that eating healthy, wholesome diets is good for our overall wellness. But did you know that what we eat can also impact our hair? Today we’re going to explore some tips for how to eat for healthier looking hair.


What is hair exactly and how do we eat well for it?

It is important to remember that hair is an accessory organ of the skin —and like all other organs in the body, its health and texture depends heavily on lifestyle choices and dietary habits. Anything and everything impacts how your hair looks. Stress, nutrient deficiencies, heavy metals in drinking water, and the use of tobacco can - and usually do - have an influence on hair.

Although there are many lifestyle trends that contribute to your hair's ultimate look, today we want to focus specifically on nutrition because it is a significant hair-health contributor that (with a bit of determination and some general knowledge) is within everyone’s power to control.


10 important nutrients to keep your hair healthy

Hair loss, thinning, and brittleness can all be reduced with a fortified diet. For every hair-related distress, there’s a hero nutrient ready to come to the rescue. Here are ten different nutrients to keep your hair healthy.


HAIR LOSS
To reduce hair loss, and to encourage hair growth, luster, and strength, consume foods rich in Silica, Calcium, Vitamin B, Iron, Zinc and Biotin. You can find Silica in whole grain breads, mangoes, bananas and even beer!


PROTEINS
Proteins deserve their own category. Hair is made out of proteins, so make sure you’re eating proteins! They are vital for healthy hair growth and texture. Although protein deficiencies are rare in Western cultures, it is still a good idea to make sure that you are covered.

SCALP CIRCULATION
Healthy hair starts at the follicle, and it is important to make sure that all of the little capillaries delivering nutrient-rich blood to the scalp are in working order. Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Coenzyme Q10 improve blood circulation to the scalp so that hair can be sculpted well, right from the get-go.


Go make yourself a plate.
You will feel good about it.

Making yourself a health-conscious (and hair-conscious) plate doesn’t have to be a hassle. It can be simple and fun. My favourite dish has lemon butter fish, sprinkled with a bit of quinoa and brown rice. It’s absolutely delicious, and great for the hair!

But it doesn’t matter what you decide to make, the fun part is trying something different, mixing it up, and feeling healthy in the process. The good thing about the aforementioned nutrients is that although they are good for the hair, they also improve your overall well being. If your hair looks healthy, it is a sign that your whole body is healthy as well! So keep these ten simple nutrients in mind!
