Whether you want a glorious mane like Blake Lively or Jennifer Aniston, all it takes is eating right, say experts at DHI medical Group who have drawn the ultimate seven-superfood roadmap for healthy hair…
Thick, bouncy, voluminous hair is a sign of vitality and as much as you rely on the shampoos and conditioners it is important to remember that what we eat can have an overall effect on the condition and of our hair. It isn’t all about fancy treatments (though this does help immensely) — it’s about making sure you are eating the right foods.
Here are the seven foods that give you luscious healthy hair
1. Salmon for extra shine
The key ingredient for a healthy scalp are protein and vitamin D. So pack your diet up with Salmon for that extra shine which helps improve hair strength and prevent breakage.
2. Lean meats to boost your iron levels
Iron is an important mineral for hair. So don’t feel too guilty if you feast on a big slice of steak every now and then. If you are vegetarians, go for lentils, spinach and other leafy green vegetables such as broccoli and kale.
3. Sunflower Seeds for healthier locks
If you are after healthier hair with intense and beautiful color, sunflower seeds are your go-to munchies during the day. These mild nutty-tasting seeds are packed with vitamin E, B6, zinc and vitamin B2.
Including prunes in your diet can help to improve hair texture. They are rich in iron and a good dose prunes every week can help avoid the bad hair days.
5. Sweet potatoes
Regenerate your hair health diet by regularly consuming sweet potatoes. Being one of the most nutritious vegetables, sweet potatoes are packed with nutrients that maintain hair health.
Coconut oil, which is high in healthy fats and minerals, is one of the best natural nutrients for your hair, boosting growth and shine by moisturizing the scalp.
This leafy green vegetable is rich in nutrients and antioxidants, which is why it is excellent for your hair health.
