Healthy You, Healthy Hair
Posted on June 30 2017
Every year, the number one New Year's Resolution is always the same: Something to the degree of "Lose Weight", or "Be Healthier". This year if you make that resolution, we are giving you more reason to enjoy it; better hair! There are many different reasons you could have problems with your hair, from iron deficiency to just eating the wrong things. Just like the health of the body, the health of your hair starts from inside; what you take in, is what you get out. We have done the research to make your journey to healthy, gorgeous hair as easy as we could get it for you! All you have to do is take a trip to your local grocery store to be well on your way to better health and better hair. Here are 7 foods for 2017 that are sure to help your locks!
1.Tangerines- The Benefits of tangerines affect your hair in two major ways. One being that the Vitamin C content makes it easier for your body to absorb iron. Two being that it contains Vitamin B12, which promotes hair growth, reduces hair loss, and even slows down the graying process!
2.Spinach- Quite often, a mineral deficiency is the culprit behind hair loss. For example, if you have an iron deficiency, that can lead to hair loss. Spinach is iron rich and it contains sebum, which acts as a natural conditioner for the hair. Spinach is also rich in Omega-3 acids, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. All of these nutrients in spinach can keep your hair shiny and prevent it from shedding quite so much.
3.Greek Yogurt- Have you ever noticed that on almost all ancient greek statues, there sits a ton of thick, full, wavy hair. Coincidence? Maybe. But it could also be due to the protein-packed yogurt that the Greeks and other cultures have been eating since 500 B.C. Greek yogurt is also full of Vitamin B5, which helps with blood flow (which can also promote hair growth).
4.Salmon- The human body is so smart and complex, that most people will never in their lifetime be able to comprehend the talent and abilities our body can actually perform. However, one thing our bodies just can not do is make Omega-3 Fatty Acids. They are anti-inflammatory, and can help if inflammation is what is causing hair loss/shedding.
5.Cinnamon- Who doesn't love the smell and/or taste of cinnamon? Not only does it remind you of all the holiday treats you will be missing for the next 300+ days, it actually improves circulation, oxygen, and nutrients are brought to your hair follicles stimulating hair growth. (It is also a great beauty hack for fuller lips! Just dab a little bit on your lips, as it is a natural plumper!)
6.Strawberries- Your body needs Vitamin C to help make protein and enough of it to make strong, unbreakable strands. Just one of cup of strawberries contains 113% of your recommended daily intake of Vitamin C.
7.Sweet Potatoes- Sweet potatoes contain Beta Carotene which protects against dry, dull hair and stimulates the glands in your scalp. Beta Carotene can also be found in carrots, pumpkin, cantaloupe, and mangoes (any orange fruit and vegetable).
