Top 7 Superfoods for Hair Growth, Health, and Shine
Thursday, 02 July 2020

Do you struggle with dry and damaged hair? Does it feel like it takes you six months to grow just an inch of hair? Well, we have the hair care tips you've been looking for.

And no, it doesn’t involve a flood of shampoo, conditioners, or other chemicals that you can put on your hair. Most people think hair care mainly comes from what we put on it, which is not totally wrong. What we eat have more lasting impact on our hair health in a more natural way.

So here are the seven top superfoods for that healthy hair growth and shine.

1. Eggs

Did you know that a lack of protein in your diet can lead to hair loss? Hair follicles largely consist of protein, so it's critical to eat foods rich in protein to promote hair growth. By including a healthy amount of eggs into your diet, you'll be ingesting plenty of protein and biotin, along with other hair-friendly nutrients like zinc.

2. Avocados

Vitamin E is an antioxidant that reduces oxidative stress, promoting both hair growth through supplements or delicious foods like avocados. Avocados are rich in both vitamin E and fatty acids, making it a natural combatant to hair loss and damaged scalps.

3. Guava

The flavorful guava is packed full of vitamin C, which is an antioxidant similar to vitamin E. Guavas are regularly linked to increased hair growth among those with thinning hair. They provide more vitamin C than the majority of fruits we commonly associate with the vitamin, including oranges.

4. Seeds

Seeds, and flax-seeds, in particular, offer Omega-3 fatty acids that keep hair healthy and voluminous. The body isn't capable of producing these fats on its own, so it's crucial to include seeds and other fatty acid sources in your diet. Thankfully, seeds are incredibly easy to just slip into a smoothie or have as a snack on their own.

5. Yogurt

Greek yogurt has been a reliable way of keeping both hair and skin healthy for centuries as it's full of protein and vitamin B5. Having trouble keeping track of all the different vitamins and how they can change the way your hair looks and feels? There's plenty of online courses that can teach you all the ins and outs of hair health and styling.

6. Almond/Peanut Butter

Both almond butter and peanut butter are rich in vitamin E and a wide range of other nutrients. Adding even just a tablespoon of either of these to your daily diet, especially almond butter, will bring you closer towards the thick, shiny hair you've been looking for.

7. Berries

Berries have the antioxidants, like vitamin B, that your hair needs to combat hair loss. Adding a handful of blueberries to your morning oatmeal or having them as a snack between meals can make a meaningful difference.

Wrap Up

There's plenty of food that will naturally promote hair growth and get you that shiny and healthy style you've been looking for. It's as easy as incorporating one or two into your daily diet.
