Deep conditioning, olive oil rinses, organic shampoos—NONE of these will make your hair more beautiful if your DIET is WEAK. Despite the buzz about oils, serums and other promising hair products, shiny, HEALTHY hair starts at the FOLLICLES, so FEED THEM RIGHT. Yo-yo or fad diets – especially popular with people in their 20s – can leave your body nutrient-deprived, ALSO damaging and depriving hair. For hair to be healthy and look its best, you need balanced nutrition – from the inside outSo…what’s on the menu? Protein is the building block for ALL cell growth in the body.To make sure you get enough, stack your plate with lean beef and poultry, nuts, seeds and dairy products. And protein-rich eggs also provide BIOTIN, a B vitamin that’s a structural component of hair.The VITAMINS you consume are also INTEGRAL to follicle health. Vitamin A—which you get from dairy, and orange and dark green fruits and vegetables—assists in sebum production, your hair’s au nauturel conditioner.B vitamins -- found in liver, beef, tuna, brown rice and salmon -- support hair growth.Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, neutralizes follicle-damaging free radicals and helps your body absorb IRON. The best sources of vitamin C are citrus fruits, green veggies and tomatoesAnd now we jump to Z—for ZINC. This mineral keeps hair from SHEDDING, and is found in beans, walnuts, cashews, almonds and seeds, and red meat and poultry. AndOYSTERS have MORE zinc per serving than ANYTHING else.To top off your healthy hair eating plan eat PLENTY of foods with OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS.These may support scalp health, hair shine, and if you don’t have ENOUGH, your hair becomes dry and dull. You’ll find the highest levels of Omega-3s in fish, walnuts, oysters and flaxseedPutting together a DIVERSE diet of these delicious foods, will keep your hair strong and healthy from the INSIDE, outIf you’re interested in vitamin and mineral supplements, PLEASE talk with your doctor beforehand.
