10 Aug How To Eat Better For a Healthy Scalp
- What you put into your body shows up later on your scalp. We all have a friend who only eats processed, fried, greasy foods. Ever noticed their scalp?
- Healthy hair is a sign of overall good health. When your hair is dull, lifeless, or brittle, it’s a sign that healthy changes in your diet could improve the condition of your scalp and overall appearance.
- Hair follicles thrive on a balanced diet that is rich in protein, complex carbs, fatty acids, and essential vitamins.
- Eating salmon can improve the condition of your scalp. It’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids and it’s packed with lean protein.
- To strengthen your cuticle (the hair’s outer layer), make sure you’re indulging in vitamins A, B12, and biotin, found in spinach, eggs and bananas.
- Hair loss may be related to deficiencies in certain minerals. Try eating Brazil nuts or selenium and oysters for zinc. Iron also supports healthy hair.
Citrus, fruits, vegetables and protein all are necessary for hair health. Make sure you have zinc and omega-3 oils in your diet. Zinc comes in many forms, but it is very nourishing to the hair. Omega-3s keep hair healthy and prevent it from becoming dry and brittle, so incorporate more fish in your diet. Vitamin C is great because it absorbs iron.
