Do you dream of having hair that is long, lustrous and healthy? But despite all your efforts, if it still feels like your hair just doesn’t grow past a certain length or doesn’t look healthy enough, then the problem could be your diet.
Yes, that’s right. Your diet has a major impact on the look and feel of your hair, and therefore it is really important to eat foods that contain hair-loving vitamins and nutrients. Wondering what these superfoods are? DW, we’ve got you covered.
Here is a list of four superfoods that you can consume during this COVID-19 lockdown to ensure that you when you step out again, your hair looks stunning AF!
It is said that for your diet to be truly nutritious, eat a lot of different colours (these colours signal the presence of diverse phytochemicals and phytonutrients) and guess what? That’s true for your strands as well. Eating different coloured berries such as strawberry, blueberry, mulberry, etc. helps make your hair strong and shiny. This is because berries are a huge source of antioxidants and help to prevent as well as repair hair damage caused by free radicals.
If you feel like your hair lacks shine and is super dry and brittle, then maybe it’s time to include about two to three avocados in your weekly food plan. Packed with essential fatty acids and vitamin, avocados help form a protective layer of moisture around your strands to not just prevent damage, but also keep the hair hydrated and conditioned.
Munching on seeds or adding them to your daily smoothie or salad is a nice way to give your hair enough nutrition. Seeds such flax seeds, pumpkin seeds and fenugreek seeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty, magnesium, iron and protein - all of which help promote hair growth, reduce hair fall and make your hair silky smooth.
Most of us hate the idea of eating our greens, but if you want your hair to grow really long, then dark leafy green veggies should be right up your alley. You can include spinach, kale and broccoli in your diet as they are chock full of nutrients such as vitamin E, A, C and iron all of which really work to improve hair health and shine.
