Food for hair: Best foods to eat for healthy hair
Discover the foods to help you grow strong and healthier hair
Do you feel like no matter what hair products or treatments you use, you can't seem to achieve your dream of strong, thick and healthy hair? You're not alone! While there are many complex factors like age, stress, hormones, underlying health conditions that play a role in your hair health, controllable factors like a healthy diet can help improve hair health. Here are the foods to stock in your pantry.
Essential fatty acids
Essential fatty acids feed the hair from the inside and help to keep it healthy. Foods with Omega-3 like oily fish such as salmon, tuna, sardines, macarel, or biotin rich foods like avacados and almonds are essential for hair and nail renewal.*
Zinc and iron are important minerals for healthy hair. Seafoods, especially oysters are one of the best sources of zinc.
Iron helps oxygenate your cells properly which is essential for improving hair health. Foods high in iron include pulses (lentils, chickpeas), red meat, fish and dairy products.
Eggs are rich in iron, zinc, protein and biotin, a mineral that helps to strengthen hair by promoting vitamin B12 synthesis. Enjoy them in salads, hard-boiled, or try them scrambled in avocado oil for an extra hit of nutrition.
Pro tip: Make a scalp mask with egg yolk to boost the hydration of hair follicles. Mix an egg yolk with a spoonful of honey (emollient and moisturiser), castor oil or olive oil (excellent for fortifying the hair), then coat your hair and leave on for around 25 minutes. Rinse with cold water and for best results, finish by applying Klorane strengthening shampoo with Quinine, which helps to keep hair healthy, naturally.
As you take steps to strenghten your hair from the inside, compliment it with hair products that will work to nourish and strenghten your hair from the outside too. Klorane's Quinine range is formulated to restore, fortify and reinvigorate weak, thin and lifeless hair.
