Healthy Hair Starts With What You Eat

Do you have hair that isn’t exactly where you want it?

As a woman, I know first-hand about having a bad hair day.  Many men and women know what it is like to have a day where your hair won't seem to do what you want it to.  But what if we could cut out some of those bad hair days with certain foods?  Eating healthy can lead to a healthy weight, which can boost confidence. Also, eating healthy can bring happiness and healthiness to our hair.

Below is a list of foods that you can include in your diet, to help bring you healthier hair:

Vegetable Oil

Do you have dry hair?  Summer months can be just as daunting as winter, if you live in a place where the summer heat is dry rather than humid.  Oils like olive oil, peanut oil, sunflower oil are some things to include in your diet. Using a teaspoon a day will help with dry hair.

Fruits and Vegetables

Another great remedy for dry hair? Adding another helping of fruits and vegetables.  Not only will you be adding vitamin C help your body with iron, it also helps dry hair.  Broccoli, green peppers, and strawberries are some examples of food to include in your eating regimen.


Suffering from thinning hair or hair loss?  Start eating some oysters.  Oysters offer zinc that in turn helps with hair loss and keeps your hair healthy and shiny.  Crab, liver, and clams are also great choices that are loaded with zinc.


A great choice for breakfast, a snack, and also good for your hair and scalp.  Eggs are rich in biotin (which is a B vitamin), which can help with hair growth and scalp health.

Lean Red Meat

Iron is always a great choice for a healthy body, and the same goes for our hair.  If you're low in iron, that can lead to baldness. So to avoid hair loss, add lean red meats as well as egg yolks, turkey, and dried fruits to your diet.
