I have always dreamt of having long luxurious locks of hair.
Enviable hair that looks effortless but is always gorgeous.
For years I struggled to make my hair grow out and the chemical treatments I applied didn’t help either.
But are there some foods that I can eat that would encourage hair growth?
There are some foods that can help you achieve the hair you see in shampoo commercials.
Proteins: Hair is made up of proteins that are produced by the proteins we consume. Eating healthy would make you look wonderful and also have great hair.
So make sure you eat lots of healthy proteins such as fish, chicken, lentils and beans.
Vitamins: Foods rich in vitamins A, B and C can help restore hair that has been damaged and leave you with a beautiful head of hair. These foods include citrus fruits, milk, cheese, grains, vegetables and yoghurt.
Minerals: The consumption of foods rich is zinc has been linked to great hair. Foods which are rich in this mineral include sea foods, grains and green vegetables.
Fats: Though fats have a bad reputation we need them in our body. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids help nourish the scalp and keep it hydrated. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids include oily fish, eggs, beans, avocado and nuts.
So eating well improves all parts of the body, so as I have some scrambled eggs I day dream of my Rapunzel like curls.
