The Good Hair Diet with Natural Hair Expert Ebony Clark "EClark6"
Is what you're consuming contributing to the health or demise of your hair? Maybe you shampoo gently with a low/no sulfates shampoo. Perhaps you're gentle when handling, or disciplined when it comes to the protection of your tresses. Better yet when it comes to products, you use the cream of the crop. That's all just peachy, but what are you eating? It's just as important, if not more, to nourish your hair from the inside. Some of the top foods include:
This high quality source of protein is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, iron, and B-12. Omega-3 fatty acids are needed to support the health of your scalp. Lack of it can cause dry scalp.
Brazil nuts are one of nature's best sources of selenium, an important mineral for the health of your scalp. Walnuts contain alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that may help condition your hair. They also provide a bountiful source of zinc, as do cashews, pecans, and almonds. A zinc deficiency can lead to hair shedding, so make sure nuts are a regular on your healthy hair menu.
Without sufficient protein or with low-quality protein, one can experience weak brittle hair. Furthermore, a profound protein deficiency can result in loss of hair color. Poultry also provides iron with a high degree of bio-availability, meaning your body can easily reap its benefits. Eggs, no matter how they're prepared are among the greatest sources of protein as well. **Whenever possible be sure to consume organic and cage free products.
Yes! Oysters may be better known for their reputation as an aphrodisiac, but they can also lead to healthy hair because they contain a powerful dose of ZINC! Who'd have thought?!?!?8. LOW-FAT DAIRY PRODUCTS
