Nourish Your Hair from Within
Beautiful hair begins with healthy nutrition. When you choose the right foods, it can have a huge impact on the overall aspect of our hair. The right hair products and treatments help tremendously, but without a balanced diet, you’ll be fighting an uphill battle.
When it comes to nourishing your hair with what you eat, it’s important to focus on nutrient-dense protein sources, fibre-filled fruits and veggies as well as healthy fats from nuts and seeds. Antioxidant-rich foods are also essential, as they play a vital role in cell regeneration. But what foods exactly should you be eating for gorgeous hair? Read on to find out which 5 foods can help you achieve the shiny, bouncy locks you’ve always dreamt of.
Chia Seeds: Fibre-rich source of omega-3
Full of fibre, protein and antioxidants, these tiny little seeds are an amazing source of omega-3 fatty acids. Since our bodies cannot produce these healthy fats, it’s imperative that we derive them from our diets. Hugely versatile, try them in your next smoothie or sprinkled over your favourite fruit.
Carrots: Powerhouse of Vitamins A and C
Loaded with antioxidants and beta-carotene – the precursor to vitamin-A – carrots are also a great addition to your healthy hair diet. Also packed with vitamin C, it makes it easier for the body to absorb iron, which can help repair your body’s cells from damage. Add it to your freshly squeezed orange juice for a vitamin powerhouse.
Spinach: To Promote Collagen Synthesis
This leafy green vegetable is a fantastic ally for health and beauty, as it offers nutrient-dense benefits for skin and hair. Loaded with magnesium, iron, and folate (all the important B vitamins), it can also help with sebum production – a vital element of hair health as it moisturises the scalp and hair. Add a handful of leaves to your next green smoothie for a healthy breakfast or snack.
Lentils: Folic Acid-Rich Superhero
Very rich in folic acid, lentils can help your body make essential red blood cells that bring oxygen to your organs – including your skin and scalp. They’re packed with plant-based, iron-rich protein, providing a building block for cell renewal and hair follicle growth. Use it in soups and stews for rich, comforting meals.
Avocado: Vitamin-rich Super Fruit
On top of being deliciously creamy, avocados can also help you get the healthy hair you’re after. Rich in vitamin E, it improves blood circulation which in turn makes the hair follicles work more efficiently. Another great benefit of the avocado is that it balances pH and sebum levels, ensuring hair follicles don’t get clogged. Try it in a salad or blend it into your next green smoothie along with some spinach!
Now that you know what you should be eating in conjunction with your Klorane haircare ritual, bon appétit!
