Top 7 Foods for Healthy Hair Growth

Even though it’s tempting to reach for pill bottles for vitamins and minerals, it’s always best to achieve optimal health through a healthy diet and lifestyle. Grabbing that pack of spinach, rather than Vitamin B pills, while you’re at the grocery store may be better in the long run for your overall health and wallet!

Seafood

Some seafood like salmon and other fatty fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and B12. Omega 3s help prevent dry scalp, promoting healthy hair growth.

Spinach and leafy greens

Dark greens contain high levels of vitamin A and vitamin C which help produce sebum. Sebum helps shield the hair and lock in moisture.

Beans, nuts and seeds

Are rich in vitamin E, biotin and proteins which can help strengthen the hair and promote hair growth.

Chicken and meats

Contain protein, B vitamins, and vitamin A, which promote hair strength, sebum production and prevent breakage and shedding.

Eggs

Eggs are another great source of protein for optimal hair health.

Whole grain

Whole grain breads and cereals are rich in B vitamins which are known to promote healthy hair and scalp.

Milk and dairy products

Calcium and protein found in dairy aid in healthy hair maintenance.
