To support all the products you apply to your hair, you might be wondering if you’re missing out on some superfoods that can help hair look lustrous and fabulous. Your diet fuels your body, and you might notice you skin doesn’t look its best after days eating fried foods and not drinking enough water. Since your hair and skin need nutrients in order to look their best, there are some foods you can start integrating into your diet that may make hair look healthier.

Lentils

These little legumes are packed with health benefits that should not be overlooked. Lentils contain iron, folic acid, protein and zinc. This superfood helps your hair grow stronger by supporting absorption of biotin supplements, restoring the health of red blood cells which invigorate the scalp, and give hair follicles the nutrients they need to have a healthy growth cycle.

Eggs

Heard the buzz about biotin? This B-vitamin is often marketed as a way to reverse hair loss, though that is not necessarily the case. Hair loss as a result of a biotin deficiency is rare, so biotin supplements likely pass through your body because biotin is water soluble and cannot be stored. Eating naturally biotin-rich eggs gives your body enough biotin to support a healthy balance.

Spinach

Leafy greens like spinach fortify your body with iron that many women often lack. Iron deficiency can, among other things, lead to hair loss. Additionally, spinach contains omega-3’s, beta carotene, folate and magnesium. These vitamins and minerals can have a huge impact on the health of your hair and body, especially if you’re replacing highly processed fast food.

Salmon

The omega-3 fatty acids in salmon can do wonders for the health of your hair. Hair loss can often occur as a result of inflammation, and omega-3’s can help combat inflammation. Additionally, it is believed that omega-3’s may help hair appear silkier and shinier because hair follicles are nourished.

Guava (Pictured)

Vitamin C supports iron absorption, which many of the aforementioned foods contain. Studies have shown that ascorbic acid, also known as Vitamin C, helps the body utilize iron from food more efficiently. Guava fruit contains up to four times the daily recommended intake of Vitamin C.

    I have been using keranique for the pass three months. I have notice a difference in my hair due to the lift and repair treatment.
    I love the way it plump up my hair making my hair feels fuller. However, the hair growth treatment I am not seeing much result there. I am getting ready to order another set of the regrowth treatment. I can’t afford to buy all the wonderful products that you provide; although they work together. So saying that, when can I start seeing some growth result.
