Healthy looking hair is a sign of a healthy life. Studies have shown that certain deficits in iron, zinc, biotin, and protein can contribute to hair loss, says Holley Grainger, M.S., R.D.
If you have been wondering how to make your hair grow faster, or look better, next time you go to the grocery store, make sure you include these six foods.
Your hair is about 97% protein. So you need it. Eggs also are rich in biotin and iron.
Omega-3 fatty acids can help strengthen hair, and make your scalp less flaky. Also rich in biotin, an essential B vitamin for hair and scalp health.
4. Leafy greens
Are full of good-for-you Vitamin C and A. Vitamin C is important for the absorption of iron (that you’re getting from eggs), and Vitamin A supports hair growth.
5. Orange- and yellow-colored vegetables
They’re full of the antioxidant beta-carotene, which helps the body convert Vitamin A for healthier skin.
It helps transport all those nutrients you need to your hair follicles and nail lunulae.
