We superficially take care of our hair but tend to forget that there is a more deeper and internal nutritional approach to nurture it and give a healthy sheen, feel and look our hair. A balanced diet rich in proteins and iron can work just fine to give you shiny, bouncy and thick hair.
Here are a list of certain foods which can work wonders to improve your hair quality:
Chicken: they have high quality protein and iron making your brittle hair strong and long.
Fish: especially salmon and tuna besides having high amount of protein also contain high amount of omega-3 fatty acids required for good scalp health which makes every cell of your hair luscious. Vegetarians can substitute fish with 1-2 tbsp flaxseeds for plant based omega-3.
Eggs: are excellent source of protein and biotin which prevents hair breakage and improves hair strength.
Green leafy vegetables: are a great source of iron, vitamin C-helps to absorb iron and vitamin A-helps to produce sebum by your hair follicles, natural hair conditioner.18
Beans: provide little protein alone but have good amount of iron, folic acid, zinc and biotin making hair stronger.
