3 Dietary Modifications for Shiny, Silky Hair:  

While hair products can offer an excellent boost to your beauty routine, we often forget that the true value that our dietary habits provide. Our hair and skin serves as a direct representation of how healthy we are on the inside. In fact, the most beautiful silky and shiny hair comes from being well-nourished, properly detoxed and engaging in mindful eating practices. Here is our round up of our top ‘healthy hair’ lifestyle choices.

 

1)    Horsetail Horsetail herb taken in tea or tablets contains a high amount of silica that is required for optimal hair growth, structure and resilience. Since silica is a component of collagen, this will also benefit your skin, resulting in a greater glow and enhanced vibrancy. 

 

2)    Fats: Choose healthy fats wherever possible. This includes: avocado, hemp seeds, raw unsalted nuts (such as almonds, walnuts and cashews). As well as unrefined olis such as extra-virgin olive oil, flax seed oil, hemp oil or coconut oil.  This will confer additional hydration in the body cells, which will be transferred to the hair shaft through proper sebum production.

 

3)    Dark leafy greens: Contain a multitude of nutrients and antioxidants for healthy hair. These include: zinc, b-vitamins, iron, magnesium, vitamin A & C, as well as having the richness of a variety of phytochemicals. It’s natures multi-vitamin, and this will do wonders for improving the thickness, length, and resiliency of your hair, not to mention shine! Go for plenty of kale, spinach, swiss chard, arugula, collard greens, cabbage, dandelion, and broccoli. Remember, the darker the green the better, as this is a direct sign of how nutrient dense it is!

 

Bon Appetit!
