Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Omega 3’s are discussed quite often in relation to our internal health and even our skin. As it turns out, they’re not just great for those benefits, but they also help in achieving glowing hair! Omega 3’s have been found to help tremendously with achieving shiny, glowing hair strands. It really comes from the fact that omega 3’s help to add hydration and moisture to the scalp and actual hair strands.
Coconut oil has been frequently discussed in the beauty world the past couple of years, and with good reason! Coconut oil is incredibly effective at helping to get a glow into your hair. Between consuming it in your diet and even applying it right to your scalp and/or hair strands the benefits are bountiful with adding moisture and hydration effectively into hair.
They’re incredible to have a healthy breakfast with, among plenty of other recipes. But eggs aren’t just great for maintaining a healthy diet, they’ve also been found to add nutrients to hair to achieve shiny and glowing locks. Eggs have been found to aid in giving hair and the scalp a lot of healing and repairing benefits to assist with that glow.
Another food we often hear about for a healthy diet, can help you achieve healthy and glowing hair! Walnuts are rich in omega 3 AND omega 6 fatty acids, which both have been known to be incredibly powerful at giving hair that gorgeous, shiny glow we all know and love. They’ve also been found to help add strength and fullness to hair because of the powerful protein source they hold AND give a boost to moisture.
You probably didn’t expect to hear us mention pumpkin seeds for your hair, but they’re LOADED with a lot of incredibly powerful nutrients that give hair an incredible glow. Between the rich source of omega 3 fatty acids, zinc, vitamin A and vitamin K pumpkin seeds are packed with a range of nutrients that our hair craves in order to gain that glow. All of the nutrients found in pumpkin seeds help with strength and moisture retention in hair strands, which is what helps gain that glow.
