But what if we told you, you could eat certain foods that could have a major impact on your hair’s appearance? Well, believe it!
Protein for Hair?!
We always hear about eating more protein if you’re looking to change your body’s appearance, but you probably didn’t think it also had an impact on your hair’s appearance! Experts have discovered that incorporating more lean sources of protein into your diet can help prevent your hair from becoming brittle and dealing with a lot of hair breakage. Well, you know protein is great for helping to build strong muscles in the body? Basically, it helps build strong hair. Bingo! One of the biggest attributes to having gorgeous hair is maintaining its strength and preventing any damage from occurring, which is why protein is so beneficial to getting beautiful hair you desire.
You’ve probably heard some of your friends or acquaintances talking about green smoothies and eating/drinking green foods. Well, it’s not just a trend it’s actually got some serious benefits to it. Experts have found that incorporating more green foods into your diet can have a huge benefit to creating healthy hair. Green foods like broccoli, spinach and other leafy greens are full of incredible vitamins that do wonders for the hair. The good news is these foods are easy to incorporate and have benefits for more than just your hair – go get you some greens into your diet and watch your hair soar in health!
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
In recent years, there’s been more and more evidence to show the benefits of incorporating more omega-3’s into your diet from heart health to…scalp health?! Yep! Omega-3’s have been found to be incredibly beneficial to creating a healthy scalp. In case you’re not sure how this relates to beautiful hair, experts always say that your scalp’s health has a DIRECT impact on your hair’s health. So basically if you don’t have a healthy scalp it’s going to be really difficult to have healthy, beautiful hair. They just go hand in hand.
