Benefits of Eating A Balanced Diet On Hair Growth
Love Me Afro support the growth of strong, healthy, kinky, curly hair. Whether you are transitioning and just starting your natural hair journey, or simply upholding your current healthy hair, growth is always a priority.
We all know that everyday life can affect our hair growth. Rain, hard water, pollution, chlorine and of course our eating habits. All of these things can potentially have a negative effect. More often than not, they will eventually lead to breakage or dryness. Although, we can all try our best to keep our natural tresses hydrated and moisturized by using products such as day to day ‘AS I AM Jamaican Black Castor Oil Moisturizing Masque’ or Mielle Pomegranate & Honey Leave In Conditioner, day to day
life is not always easy on our hair. It is important to recognise that there are simple, small changes we can all make that will have a positive impact on our hair health such as diet, night time hair routines, and exercise. We are now going to share with you the importance of eating a balanced diet and how it can positively contribute towards hair growth.
By now, we should all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So, what you need to do is, replace your buttered toast with oats.
Oats contain protein, potassium, zinc, and vitamin B. They also have minerals, beneficial compounds, and vitamins in particularly high quantities. This works towards preventing hair loss but it also helps build overall hair health. Stock up on your boxes today.
Protein is one of the most important factors to sustain healthy hair. After all don’t forget your hair is made up of protein chains. If protein is lacking from your diet, you could experience problems such as brittle hair or even hair loss. Pork, almonds, chicken and eggs are rich in protein as well as biotin.
Make sure you add all of these items to your shopping list and eat them in sensible quantities to keep your tresses robust and beautiful.
Fish contains high levels of Omega-3 and Omega- 3 are a secret God send. It works wonders for not just your natural hair but your body and skin. These fatty acids are present in cells lining your scalp that we all have, and Omega-3 helps keep them hydrated. The best sources are oily fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring, trout, and sardines. If you are veggie, not to worry. You can still add avocados, walnuts, chia and milled flax seeds into your diet to help boost your Omega-3 levels. When you understand hair health, you understand that healthy hair and natural hair growth begins from the inside out. You do not need to eat these foods every day. Simply keep them in mind when you go food shopping and add them to different meals for variety. We all want a strong, healthy voluminous head of hair, and with the right diet and the right products, it can be a possibility for everyone.
