Contrary to popular belief, the secret to healthy hair is not related to the shampoo you use but the food you eat.
Secret 1: Water
Yes we know you have heard it before but we’re telling you again. Water makes up a quarter of the contents of our hair and our bodies need a regular intake, 8-10 glasses a day to be precise. Do not wait until you are already thirsty as this means you are already starting to dehydrate. Healthy hair is hydrated hair.
Secret 2: Protein
Protein which is found in such foods as cheese, fish, milk, meat and cereals is essential for healthy hair. Protein actually strengthens the hair shaft itself preventing splitting and snapping.
Secret 3: Minerals
Iron helps to improve the oxygen supply to your hair. Lack of Oxygen to the hair can cause brittleness throughout the length of your hair which is never good. Iron can be found in red meat and dark green vegetables. I bet a sunday roast is looking good about now :)
Copper in your diet can help with your hair colour. That’s right, no more need for high lights and low lights. Try shellfish, liver, fresh veg, nuts and seeds.
Secret 4: Vitamins
Vitamin A helps you to get a great scalp. Veggies like carrots are best.
Vitamin B & C helps good blood circulation which makes for healthy strong hair and no split ends. Foods such as eggs, milk, bread and fruit & veg are best.
Vitamin E which is found in brown rice, wheat and leafy greens is what gives your hair shine.
We hope these nutritional tips help your hair to look its best and you to feel fabulous.
