With the right diet, you can kill two birds with one stone!
Salmon is packed with Omega-3 fatty acids, which are great for your hair.
If you plan to bring sexy back come springtime by reducing your calorie intake and increasing your time at the gym, expect your new bikini body to come with longer and healthier curls. You can lose weight and get better hair, too!
Eating a healthy diet will contribute to growing stronger and healthier cells throughout your entire body—inside and out and of course that includes your hair.
To entice your palette with the best foods that will give you the most benefit, try to include dishes that are not only beneficial to your weight goals, but also provide some life to those curls.
One example of a satisfying meal that provides an abundance of nutrients to both your body and hair is salmon with a side of wild rice and broccoli. According to the article, salmon is a high-quality protein source, packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which are needed to support scalp health. The rice will provide the hair with a dose of iron and zinc, and the broccoli provides an excellent source of vitamins A and C, which your body needs to produce sebum.
If you’re not a fan of seafood, substitute chicken or turkey for the salmon, as poultry is also an excellent source of protein. If you notice that your hair has become weak and or brittle, that is a sign that you are not consuming enough protein.
If you’re looking for a meal for breakfast that will keep your hair shiny and your waistline slim, start your day off with a spinach omelet.
Just like poultry and fish, eggs are a great source of protein. Spinach is a great source of iron and calcium, which is an important mineral for hair growth as well as weight loss. For a double dose of calcium, add a slice low-fat cheese to your omelet or go for a cup of low-fat yogurt and top it off with your choice of nuts. Known to cause shiny hair, Brazil nuts are a great source of selenium, which is an important mineral for the health of your scalp.
