5 Foods Every Woman Should Eat For Healthy Hair
DARK GREEN VEGETABLES
Most dark greens — such as broccoli, kale, spinach and Swiss chard — are tremendous sources of vitamin A and iron. Vitamin A is essential for the production of natural oils that condition our hair and give it shine and elasticity.
Dark green vegetables also provide iron and calcium, which are both essential to healthy hair.
When it comes to healthy hair, lately there’s been a lot of buzz about biotin — a nutrient found in egg yolks. Recent studies suggest that biotin works to protect the hair follicle and shaft to prevent breakage, thereby encouraging hair health and growth.
Nuts are excellent sources of essential fatty acids, and most — especially Brazil nuts, cashews, almonds and walnuts — provide minerals like selenium and zinc, which are important in the development of healthy tissues, particularly the scalp. Walnuts are especially great because they are high in omega-3 fatty acids.
