Super-foods to eat for Shiny, Healthy Hair

Who doesn’t like food? I mean, of course we need to stay alive and survive, but to thrive! Oh yeah, now we’re talking! We all know it’s way more than just eating what is served. Crazy combos, interesting pallets, successful food experiments, yum yum yum! Not only does it amaze the tongue but also provide nutrition and vitamins and minerals essential for our growth.  And for this very reason, we at 1 Gravity realized we absolutely couldn’t leave behind food ideas while taking of hair care. You aren’t the only foodie here!

Eggs

What came first the chicken or the egg? Well, in the list of best foods for healthy hair, we’ll have to say the egg. Yes, you read correct. Eggs are listed at the top for recommendations to achieve healthy, shiny hair as they have proven to be a great source of protein and biotin, both of which are essential for your hair and their growth and health. You could also say that they are the building blocks for hair growth. Why? Hair is made up of a protein called keratin, which makes up hair, skin, and nails. For growth, protein is important, so get enough to keep hair production going along. Biotin, a B vitamin found in egg yolks, enhances the strength and structure of keratin. Not just that but eggs contain minerals such as zinc and selenium, as well as other B vitamins, such as folate and B12, that contribute to healthy, shiny hair. Also, remember to  not miss the yolk since that’s where the good part lies, at least for your hair if not for the tongue.

Salmon

Now, unlike eggs mainly beneficial for hair growth and strength, fish helps in keeping your luscious locks shiny! Salmon, mackerel, trout, albacore tuna, etc. are great options when wanting to keep your beautiful hairy shiny and hydrated. We recommend fish since they are an amazing source of vitamin D as well as calcium and help avoid hair loss.

Spinach

You know the funny thing about Popeye? The sailor man? Everyone’s favorite cartoon character? Even though he had a literal addiction to spinach, boy never grew out hair. Yup, as long as you aren’t limited to a character cosplay, we can assure you spinach prove to be miracle food for hair. Spinach is packed with Vitamins A and C. It nourishes your body with perfect amounts of iron and thus, circulate your red blood cells and supplies oxygen which is extremely essential for hair follicles too. 

Sweet Potatoes

There’s absolutely nothing better than some delicious, crispy fries with aside of your favorite sauce, right? Wrong! Well, technically you could have high cholesterol deep fried usual fries but how about a switch of perfectly baked and healthy sweet potato fries? Not only yummy but fair enough for hair. Sweet potatoes are enriched in beta carotene that gets converted into Vitamin A and further encourages sebum development as well as provide nutrition for your hair. See! Hydrated scalps seem easy to achieve with some of the sweet potatoes!

Almonds

Memories of our mothers handing out almonds to sharpen our brain will probably be one in some of the sweetest ones. Well, time to obey and thank mommy since they aren’t just helpful for the destined purpose but much more. Not only are almonds an amazing source of vital protein and amino acids that promote hair growth and development but are also rich in vitamin E! Thus giving you the shiny, thick hair you’ve been wishing for! It contains biotin to prevent hair loss and keeps your hair healthy!

Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt contains up to twice the amount of standard yogurt’s protein content. That’s awesome for your hair and your body. It also contains vitamin D and B5, which are essential for keeping your skin and hair healthy. In addition, you can make a Greek yogurt hair mask and apply it directly to the deep condition of your tresses and moisturize rough, brittle threads. The yogurt’s lactic acid works as a natural exfoliate and also helps flush dead skin cells away from your scalp.

Well, here were some of our recommendations… But don’t forget to take care of yourself as a whole because you’re beautiful and perfect overall and we wouldn’t want anything to go wrong with you!
