Hair Nutrition | The Basics

Oct 20, 2016
When we’re talking about hair health, most of the time it’s all about the products oils, serums, and know, the works. But what you might not know is that the majority of what is affecting our locks is what we’re putting INTO our bodies, not necessarily what we put directly ON our hair.

Here are my top two tips for eating and supplementing to get your best hair yet!

The first item of business is protein.
Although it sounds slightly gym rat, protein is actually one of the key building blocks for hair strength and growth. When you don’t get enough protein, your body borrows from the things we love the most
aka our hair skin and nails.

Rude, I know.

To combat this, I suggest eating a good protein source with each meal. Some of my favorite high-protein foods are eggs,  lean meats like turkey or chicken, beans, or if I'm in a hurry, a protein shake or protein bar.

Now let's talk about Iron.
Have you ever brushed your hair before going out on a Friday night only to notice half way through dinner that your LBD is covered in strands of your own loose hair? Talk about social suicide.

Surprisingly enough, increasing your iron intake can help prevent this issue in the future!

Iron is essential to keep hair from over shedding. If you're anything like the majority of the population, there's a chance you could be overstressed and not getting enough nutrientstherefore lacking the iron you need to achieve our own hair goals.

In my opinion, the best way to ensure your body is getting enough iron is to buy an iron supplement online and take it once a day. This will help you keep the hair you have and also stimulate new hair growth —all good things in my book.

So if you want healthier hair, give these  hair nutrition basics a shot! I will be sharing more tips on what recipes and other supplements keep you hair game strong soon!
