Need an example?
Here is the tried & tested one!
When you focus on drinking water to detox and hydrate your body, eventually you get the results. You get the boosted immune system, clearer complexion, healthy skin, increased energy level and other health benefits.
Likewise, if you focus on getting healthier hairs, you can eat your way to lustrous locks by simply adding superfoods in your daily diet which contains specific types of nutrients such as-
Protein is the most essential nutrient for hairs. As it is a well-known fact that hair fibre is made of a protein called keratin. Thus, protein is a fundamental element for your hair. If you eat protein-rich food, it will help the body to produce keratin. There are plenty of options by which you can add this vital nutrient to the diet.
Likewise, add seafood, white meat, eggs, beans, milk, cheese, yoghurt & soy in the daily diet. You can have any of the food as per your preference as all these options are protien rich.
Second super nutrient for stronger and growing hair is iron. Lack of iron can lead to hair loss. I shared with you all that how iron deficiency can cause hair loss, you can read the article here.
Lack of iron in the body directly impacts the hair growth and causes a short time period of hair growth phase. Therefore make sure you never skip iron-rich food such as oyster, shellfish, red meat, turkey, legumes, spinach, tofu, broccoli, quinoa, dark chocolate, lentils, beans, brown rice, pumpkin seeds, cashews, pine nuts and flaxseeds.
Also, while eating plant source of iron, always add vitamin C in food as it absorbs the iron from sources more efficiently. For vitamin C, you can eat oranges, berries, tomatoes, kiwi, capsicum, sweet potatoes, radish, lemons and strawberries.
It is one of the crucial vitamins for hair growth. It makes hair stronger. Biotin enhances the body’s keratin infrastructure. Lack of biotin can lead to dried out and brittle hair strands. And I am sure no one wants that kind of hair.
So, you should eat food like mushrooms, lentils, egg yolk, almonds, peanuts, walnuts, soybeans, cauliflower, bananas, whole grain and organ meats, such as liver or kidney.
If you consume biotin-rich diet then it will enhance the elasticity and strength of the cortex. Cortex is the thickest layer of the hair shaft which protects hair damage and breakage from overstyling, heat styling, sun, chlorine, and other environmental factors.
This wonder nutrient not only prevents hair loss and breakage but also provides lustrous hairs and boosts hair growth. It nourishes the hair follicles and improves the overall health of hair.
If you dealing with hair problems like dandruff, hair fall and improper blood circulation in the scalp, dry and fragile hair, itchy and flaky scalp then omega 3 is the key nutrient you should look up to. It will surely deal with your problems.
The omega 3 rich foods are soybeans, canola oil, salmon fish, sardines fish, mackerel fish, chia seeds, flaxseeds, and walnuts. You can also opt for omega 3 supplements.
If you add these super nutrients into your daily diet, I can assure that you will get the results. Not instantly but slowly and steadily. Eating healthy is not an instant cure for any problem, it’s a lifestyle. If eating healthy is your lifestyle then you will surely see the visible results in your whole body and this lifestyle will benefit you in long run.
Meantime, hair care products cannot do the wonder if you do not watch out your diet. But if you focus on eating the right food then you can have naturally beautiful hairs which means less expense on hair care products! Yaay..!!
Consistency is the key to everything. So, just be consistent with your eating habits, cut out the junk food and get that healthy lustrous hair.
