How’s your crowning glory?
All we have taken as advice – the rituals, recipe, and routines that promise to give us healthier hair, are nothing without proper nourishment, and the best way to supply nutrients to our hair is through a well-balanced diet.
Unearthing your veggies and fruits, then blending it into one weird-tasting concoction is not the trick though. Knowing the balance of good vitamins and other nutrients that your hair needs and ensuring you get sufficient amounts of these nutrients should be the remedy to hair problems.
Here are the nutrients you need to have healthier and stronger hair:
Iron For Good Oxidation On Hair Roots
First on the roster is iron. This nutrient serves as the wheel for the red blood cells to supply our hair follicles with oxygen, which promotes fast growth. The best sources of iron will be red meat, liver, and beans.
Biotin For Healthier Strands
Aptly called “building blocks of hair,” biotin, also known as vitamin H, helps on keratin protein build needed for healthier, stronger strands. Add eggs and salmon to your meals to boost biotin levels.
Vitamin C For Better Follicle Growth
Vitamin C promotes the fast absorption of protein by breaking iron, stimulating follicle growth. Stock your basket with citrus fruits (orange, kiwi, grapefruit), peppers, and broccoli on your next trip to the market for a good supply of vitamin C.
Vitamin D For Effortless Growth
The “sunshine” vitamin D activates cells on the hair region for easy growth, while packing your system with zinc. Make sure not to overdo exposing yourself to the sun as this can cause sunburn.
Getting enough of these nutrients should be part of your normal hair care. Still, remember that hormones and genetics also play a key role in the healthy and supple mane. With proper maintenance and regular haircut, you may just encourage hair strands to grow healthier and stronger.
