How to Eat Your Way to Healthier Hair

Harness healthy fats

According to Krieger, "it's important to note that the nutrients work in unison, especially in the ways they interact for hair health."

For instance, adding essential fat to a smoothie including strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, or blackberries is necessary in order for the nutrients to be absorbed and the benefits of the berries to be felt. Avocado addition will also work the same way.

Cultivate more collagen

The epidermal layer of the scalp is one place where nutrients require a little support after being absorbed into the body with the aid of lipids. 

"Protein transports nutrients to our cells." "It serves as the foundation for healthy cells." Excellent sources of protein include dairy, quinoa, dark leafy greens, and small amounts of meat from pasture.

Vibe with vitamins

Vitamin C has a major role in promoting the formation of collagen. Squeezing a quarter or half of a lemon—which, like oranges, is high in vitamin C—into a glass of drinking water is a terrific way to start the day. 

Cole claims that it "cleanses out your liver, which helps with digestion, gut health, and promotes brighter skin." Well, not all day! Too much acid will cause pain in your stomach.

Aim for anti-inflammatories

According to Krieger, "the main thing that helps your hair is reducing inflammation in the body." Suppressing inflammation is beneficial for your heart health and can prevent hair follicles from being destroyed and from growing properly. Using antioxidants is one approach to do this.

Check with your doctor

Cole advises seeing a physician to find out about any vitamin excesses or shortages. According to Krieger, "too much of a nutrient can have the same effect as too little." It's also essential to keep in mind that heredity has a significant influence on the health and texture of hair.
