Eat Your Way to Healthy Hair
Eating a variety of healthy foods will give you the mane you’ve always dreamed of, keeping your hair in a healthy condition by including lots of green leafy vegetables and sweet juicy fruits into your diet! Iron and zinc help hair follicles to grow and protein boosts your hair strength. Eating dairy products such as milk and fresh yogurt will also help.
Sprinkle some fresh grated coconut over salads, diced fresh fruit or rice, an excellent source of ‘hair food’.
Certain spices such as cumin, turmeric and black pepper not only add flavour to your food but they also provide nourishment for your hair. Fill your plate with healthy foods to get the shiny lustrous locks you have always wanted.
