Fruits and vegetables are good for the body and also great for your hair! Natural regimens for your natural strands. Of course all good things start from the inside out. Here are a few foods that are good to eat but are also great from your inches sis. Some of which may surprise you!
Eggs are a good source of protein. It also contains biotin which promotes healthy hair
growth. Protein grows in the hair follicles and roots which helps your hair to grow. Without the adequate amount of protein in your hair, you could risk hair loss. Some people swear by putting eggs in your hair while others will just beef up the protein in their diet. It is true what they, you are what you eat and by adding protein in your diet it helps to naturally produce protein throughout your body.
Avocados are an avoca-YES in my book!!! They are considered a healthy fat and not to mention, they are delicious. Avocados are said to be packed with Vitamin B and Vitamin E. Vitamin E is great for the skin and will also help to put some of those healthy oils back into the strands. The antioxidants help to nourish the scalp and also give the hair natural body and shine. While Vitamin B produces hair growth.
Not only is yogurt good for your gut health, but also your hair. Like eggs, yogurt is packed with protein. It also helps the blood flow within the scalp. It also contains Vitamin B5 and helps to reduce shedding and hair loss.
Mayonnaise is an excellent hair mask. If used properly, it can strengthen you locks and provide luster and shine. Mayo contains oil and eggs. As stated before, eggs are a great source of protein for your hair. The most common oils used in mayo would is canola oil and olive oil. Both of which are great for adding moisture to your hair. Mayonnaise is said to promote hair growth, reverse heat damage, and damage from coloring.
Believe it or not, oysters are rich in zinc which helps to prevent hair loss. Did you know that when you deficient in zinc, you may experience dandruff, hair loss, or even stagnant growth?! We want our natural hair to be as healthy as possible underneath our protective styles, so we need to keep zinc incorporated into our diets. In case oysters aren't your thing, here are some other foods that contain a good source of zinc are beans, nuts, other seafood: crab, lobster, etc., whole grains, and even some cereals.
Honey is a great moisturizer because it adds lots of moisture and shine. Honey contains emollients which helps to soothe the hair follicles, adding moisture and shine to restore dull and dry strands. Honey has plenty of other health benefits but for your hair it can really keep that moisture in your strands which adds luster to your hair. It also helps to prevent damage and stimulates the hair follicles. This helps for stagnant follicles to start growing again.
Bananas help to improve your hairs manageability and adds shine. It also helps to decrease dandruff and increases shine. Bananas are loaded with potassium and vitamins that help to soften your hair. Bananas work as a great conditioner for the hair creating body and natural sheen.
Salmon has omega-3s, vitamin B12, fatty acids, and iron. Omega-3s alone help to keep your scalp healthy. Salmon helps to restore shine and is known to increase the density in your hair (or in other words, the thickness of your hair hon-tee!) Fatty fish like salmon contain protein, selenium, Vitamin D and Vitamin B. All of which are nutrients to help your hair become healthy and strong.
