Top 10 Foods for Healthy Hair

Beautiful hair naturally

Want glossy, healthy hair? The shelves of supermarkets, salons and pharmacies are packed with products that claim to lengthen, strengthen, thicken, lighten and nourish all hair types, most featuring a long list of unpronounceable chemical ingredients the majority of us know little about.

Fortunately, there other (cheaper) ways to protect our hair. Linda Smith reveals the best foods for healthy hair.

1. GREEN VEGIES

Add a cup a day to your diet (try a spinach salad or steamed broccoli) for hair-conditioning vitamins A and C.

2. WHOLE GRAINS

Ditch white bread for wholegrain, and your hair will benefit from added serves of zinc, iron and vitamin B.

3. PULSES

Lentils and kidney beans offer protein, which encourages hair growth, plus zinc and iron to strengthen hair.

4. SEAFOOD

The omega 3 fatty acids in fish nourish the hair and scalp. Oysters and salmon are packed with nutrients like iron and vitamin b12.

5. CARROTS

Add carrots to your salads or stir-fries to boost vitamin A intake, and your hair and scalp will thank you.

6. NUTS

Packed with essential vitamins and minerals. Brazil nuts provide selenium (great for your scalp), while walnuts help moisturise the hair.

7. MEAT

Chicken and beef are great sources of protein to strengthen hair and prevent breakage.

8. EGGS

Another great protein source, eggs, also provide vitamin B12 to promote healthy skin, nails, and hair.

9. DAIRY

Healthy hair needs calcium so ensure your diet is rich in low-fat milk, yoghurt and cheese.

10. WATER

A well-hydrated body equates to well-hydrated hair. Aim to drink eight glasses a day to keep your body and hair in good shape.
