Eat your way to healthy hair

Updated: Jan 15, 2020

Healthy hair isn’t just about, what products you use.

Although the right product for your hair makes a big difference, what you eat also has an effect on how well your hair grows and the condition of your scalp, which can also have an impact on the condition of your hair.

Cutting out certain foods from your diet or not eating well can contribute to hair loss and/or breakage. Your body needs a balance of proteins and vitamins.

Just by adding a few minor changes to your daily eating habits could make a big difference in the look, feel and also strength of your hair.

A lot of us may know what types of food are good for our hair but may not know the benefits.

Here are some of my top 5 favs:


As you may already know eggs are a great source of protein & Biotin, they also provide vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 helps in the production new hair cells and promotes hair growth.

Hair that is lacking in protein can become brittle and weak. Hair lacking in Biotin can also cause hair loss.


Spinach contains iron and Vitamins A & C all of which aid in healthy hair.

The Vitamin A in spinach helps your skin produce sebum (essential oils that help moisturise hair). Moisturised Hair Is less likely to become dry and brittle which is less prone too breakage.

Iron is good for the red blood cells, which aid in repair and growth. Lack of iron can cause excess shedding (normal hair shedding is between 25-100 hairs per day), and/or possible hair loss.


Salmon has nutrients that have been linked to hair growth. Protein, Vitamins D3 and B are among the many sources that aid in promoting strong and healthy hair. It also contains Omega-3 that contain fatty acids that also promote hair growth by keeping your scalp healthy.


Avocados are a great source of nutrients. They are also rich in protein as well as Vitamin B.

With antioxidant properties, fatty acids and vitamin E; it is great for the scalp aiding in protecting the skin from damage which can effect the health of your hair. While also aiding in straightening the hair itself.


Sweet potato is loaded with Vitamin A, which is linked to good healthy hair. Vitamin A aids in the production of sebum which as you know provides moisture, keeping hair healthy. research has also shown the Vitamin A has been proven to help in encouraging growth and hair thickness.

Caring for your hair from within allows products to work more effectively. Sometimes we buy products looking for miracle cures to hair breakage and lack of growth, use them for a period of time feel that it's not doing what it claims to do. the health of your hair could be triggered by many factors, diet is just one them. Understating the balance of nutrient that your body requires could not only improve the health of your hair, it could also improve the chances of the products designed for, strengthening and growth to actually make a difference.

Be U, Be BeaUtiful.
