Sometimes, “lather, rinse, repeat” isn’t enough to keep strands shiny and soft. Your hair needs to be nurtured from within to look its best.

Incorporate these healthy eats into your daily diet and get ready to say goodbye to dull, drab strands

Water

Adequate water intake is necessary for hair cells to transport nutrients and vitamins to the hair root. Hydrated hair is happy hair!

Fish

Omega-3 fatty acids are a powerhouse of nutrients when it comes to giving you a good hair day. Munch on flaxseeds and walnuts to add shine to your hair, and also fish like salmon, mackerel, sardines, and herring to boost your omega intake as well.

Dark green veggies

Veggies are one of the best things you can incorporate into your diet for overall health. Leafy green vegetables like spinach and broccoli are an excellent source of iron and calcium.

Whole grains

This fiber-filled food can be considered “Queen Bee” when it comes to hair-healthy foods! Whole wheat bread, fortified cereals increase your hair’s growth rate; also give your body vitamin B, which promote happy strands by boosting your red blood cell count

Greek yoghurt

Containing both calcium and protein, it can help lengthen and thicken your hair. Greek yogurt can provide about three times as much protein compared to regular yoghurt.

Coconut oil

This oil is good for almost anything! Not only can you add coconut oil into your daily diet, but you can also add it right onto your hair! Run it through your hair, and let it sit for about 30 minutes before taking a shower. The fatty acids in the oil bind to the protein in hair and protect both the roots and strands of hair from breakage.
