Continuous washing, styling and coloring can wreak havoc on the hair. To encourage optimal hair health, focus on a diet rich in essential vitamins, minerals, proteins and beneficial fats.
As an established leader in hair growth, HairMax provides a list of superfoods known to strengthen, from the inside out:
Hair is comprised of about 97% protein, a critical building block of the body. Without it, the body can’t replace the hairs that you naturally shed. Prevent unnecessary hair loss by reaching for soy, poultry and lean cuts of beef.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
The hair shaft consists of 2-3% of omega-3s, which are also found in the scalp’s cells and sebum, known to hydrate the scalp and hair. Since the body doesn’t produce its own omega-3s, ensure silky strands by consuming walnuts, salmon, sardines, trout, mackerel, avocado and pumpkin seeds.
Support the glands attached to your hair follicles with zinc, a mineral whose absence causes hair to weaken and fall out. Zinc also promotes balanced hormone levels, which is directly linked to hair health. To strengthen those tresses, opt for oysters, whole-grain breads, nuts, beef, eggs and shrimp.
Vital for the production of hemoglobin, which is responsible for oxygen transport through blood, iron is necessary to ensure healthy blood flow to stimulate hair growth. To encourage hair growth, reach for raisins, dried cherries, eggs, kale, dates and whole-grain cereals.
