Healthy Hair Begins Within

Shiny, bouncy hair is pretty much always at the top of our wishlist, amiright? While you’re no doubt willing to try your stylist recommended beauty products to help achieve and maintain those gorgeous locks, have you ever thought about using what’s in your kitchen to boost your hair health? What you eat can absolutely have a significant impact on your mane, so today we’ll talk about some of the best foods for fabulous hair.

Protein: Strands of hair are made up of protein fiber, so it only makes sense that for healthy hair, protein has to be a part of your diet, right? Not getting enough of this nutrient in your diet means that your body will limit the amount available for hair follicles. That translates to dry hair and lots of breakage. Get your protein fix from animal products like meat, poultry, and fish (or beans and legumes for vegetarians).

Almonds: Your favorite snack is also a great source of vitamins and nutrients—just don’t go overboard since they’re also high in fat (ie: enjoy a small handful- not the entire bag). A quarter cup of almonds will give you almost half of your recommended intake of vitamin E and manganese, both of which can promote hair growth!

Citrus fruits: These juicy delights aren’t just good for your immune system—they also boost your hair and skin. Vitamin C helps the body produce more collagen, while vitamin A helps the hair stay hydrated by increasing the production of sebum.

Spinach: This leafy green contains iron (great for hair strength) and zinc (which keeps hair follicles strong). It’s also a good source of potassium and calcium, two more nutrients that work to keep your hair healthy.

Salmon: One of the things our bodies need but cannot produce by themselves is omega-3 fatty acids, whose anti-inflammatory properties help prevent hair from falling out. Salmon is an especially good source of this, but if you’re a vegetarian, avocados, pumpkin seeds, and walnuts are good alternatives.

So there you have it! Healthy hair begins from within, but if you’re in need of a little extra help, come see us at TRU Salon + Spa, where we have the tools and expertise to help you address all your hair care concerns. Give us a call at one of our two locations- Branchburg, NJ (908) 218-9878 or Warren, NJ (908) 753-9878, book online, or download the app from free from iTunes, Google Play, or Amazon.
