  • Beauty Note: 10 Superfoods For Healthy Hair

    Keep your crowning glory in tip top condition with these vital super foods & never have a bad hair day again ....  


    1. Salmon

    Packed with protein and vitamin D, salmon is a one-stop superfood for hair that shines with health. Opt for wild salmon to get the biggest omega-3 fatty acid hit.


    2. Walnuts

    Walnuts are the only type of nut that contain a good amount of omega-3 fatty acids. They also contain vitamin E, which can help protect hairs from UV DNA damage. These wonder-nuts also contain a trace of copper, which helps keep hair colour bright and vibrant.


    3. Sweet Potato

    Carrots aren't the only source of the essential mineral beta-carotene. Sweet potato is another ingredient which provides the mineral and an antioxidant which the body converts to vitamin A. Being low on vitamin A could lead to an itchy, flaky scalp. By adding more sweet potato to your diet, this could eliminate the need to take a vitamin A supplement.


    4. Eggs

    Loaded with iron, eggs are a saviour for limp, lifeless locks. Also rich in biotin - an essential vitamin for hair growth - increasing the amount of eggs in your diet could dramatically affect the health of your hair.


    5. Greek Yogurt

    Dairy products are often given a bad press when it comes to healthy eating, but these calcium-rich foods are essential for glossy hair, skin and nails. Skip sugar-loaded flavoured yogurts and opt instead for plain, natural Greek yogurt.

     

    6. Spinach

    It's no secret that spinach has superfood status. Containing plenty of iron, beta-carotene, folate and vitamin C, it's a one-stop-shop for healthy cuticles and a hydrated scalp. Trade the lettuce in a salad for spinach to reap the benefits.

     

    7. Lentils

    Vegetarian? Lentils are one of the best ways to give your body those essential healthy hair nutrients without eating meat or fish. Full of protein, zinc, iron and biotin, they are a diet essential. Without enough protein for keratin, hair grows at a slower rate, and individual strands become weaker.

     

    8. Poultry

    Poultry, especially chicken, is a one of the best gram-for-gram sources of protein. Hair is virtually entirely made of protein - see lean chicken as one of the essential components if you're trying to grow your hair.

     

    9. Blueberries

    Teeming with vitamin C, it's hard to beat blueberries in the superfood stakes. Vitamin C is vital for scalp circulation and supports the blood vessels that feed your hair follicles.

     

    10. Radishes

    Radishes contain high levels of vitamin C and silica: both of which are amazing at stimulating circulation. And, as we know, good scalp circulation means rapid, strong new hair growth.
