Summer Foods for Healthier Hair

Summer Foods for Healthier Hair
If you read our last post on the Brilliance New York blog, you know that we tackled how the Keto diet affects the health of your hair. Today we’re looking at incredible summer foods for healthier hair that are abundant and ripe for the picking all summer long.
While there are plenty of healthy vitamins, minerals, and supplements out there for your hair, there really is no replacement for whole foods that are packed with everything that your body and hair need in order to thrive!

Spinach - A Great Source of Iron

Spinach is an all-time favorite of mine! It’s a leafy green that I like to substitute my lettuce with whenever I can. The great thing about spinach is that it is packed with iron which strengthens hair follicles and promotes hair growth. Spinach isn’t just Popeye’s superfood, it should be a staple in every diet when possible.

Nuts; Almonds and Walnuts - Increase Biotin Levels

You can never go wrong by adding healthy fats into your diet, especially when they pack a healthy punch of biotin! Biotin deficiencies are related to issues within the nervous system, skin, hair, and nails.
Because biotin is water-soluble, the body can’t store it. That means that it needs to be a part of your diet. Eating a cup of almonds or walnuts every day is a great way to make sure that you get your daily dose of natural fats and biotin.

Salmon - Double Dip for Protein and Omega 3s

Salmon is one of the best summer foods for healthier hair! I eat it as much as I can and in a wide array of dishes from sushi to grilled salmon with lemon. Salmon is an excellent source of protein and Omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3s have anti-inflammatory properties that help open up pores and hair follicles promoting hair growth and preventing hair loss. Omega 3s are also great for preventing dry and flaky scalps.

Carrots - Vitamin A and Beta Carotene

We all know that carrots are great for your eyes, but did you know that carrots are also an incredible source of Vitamin A and Beta Carotene that work wonders for your hair as well? The Vitamin A and Vegas Carotene in carrots is an excellent hair care remedy that naturally conditions your hair follicles and promotes blood circulation which promotes healthier, shinier hair!

Remember to Stay Hydrated

Of all the summer hair care tips and foods that you should be eating to promote better hair health, the most important thing to remember is to stay hydrated. Being properly hydrated and keeping your hair hydrated and moisturized will keep your skin and hair healthy and rich. Drink plenty of water and give your hair the hydration it needs with nutrient-rich hair care products.
Between a healthy diet and a proven hair care routine, you’ll have brilliant and beautiful hair all summer long.
