Just like your skin, healthy, shiny hair depends on a natural, balanced diet. Bring the following into your day, for lustworthy locks.
SUPERFOODS TO TURN HEADS…
All packed with omega 3 fatty acids, which are essential for strong hair growth and scalp health, yet our bodies don’t naturally produce them. Walnuts are also rich in copper, ensuring your hair remains rich and lustrous.
EGGS & SPINACH Both rich in iron, the key ingredient in terms of delivering oxygen to your hair follicles. A lack of iron makes for hair that’s dull, thin and dry. Eggs also offer selenium, a natural mineral that boosts hair growth and keeps dryness at bay, while spinach’s beta carotene, folate and vitamin C ensure your natural hair oils remain balanced.
BLUEBERRIES, KALE & KIWIS Whether you take a vitamin C supplement or find it in these foods, this nutritional superhero is vital in preventing hair breakages and maintaining follicle health.
ALMONDS Magic vitamin E, which is abundant in almonds, most leafy green vegetables and, for topical use, comes in an oil, will visibly improve your hair quality as it stimulates circulation, growth and nourishes capillaries. It’s also your split ends’ best friend.
