Healthy hair is more coveted than the perfect pair of jeans, but for some people, it’s more elusive than a perfectly ripe avocado. There’s no one food that will change what’s already on your head, but your diet can have a lot to do with growing healthy, strong locks.
As much as I love trying the latest beauty products, my expertise is fixing us all from the inside out. The healthier you are on the inside, the healthier you’ll look on the outside. Your hair is no exception. Try these foods below and you just may be tossing your hair like the Pantene girl.
“Whole grains” probably aren’t the first thing you think of when you hear silicon. Yet this important compound is found in whole grains and is responsible for the growth and shine of your luscious locks. This mineral can keep your hair from thinning, and works to help improve circulation. This means more blood flow to your scalp, which in turn will encourage healthy hair growth.
You can pair whole grains like brown rice, farro or buckwheat with almost any lean protein and veggies to make a complete hearty and healthy meal, but try this bok choy and chicken stir fry to create a menu (and hair) that really shines.
