Want Great Hair? Eat Healthier!

We’ve all looked at film stars with great hair and been envious. From newer celebrities such as Zack Effron to actors like George Clooney seem to posses a timeless quality to their hair. They have a seemingly magical way to make it look consistently thick, shiny and adaptable to a wide range of styles. Having hair that suits many styles is a very useful tool for an actor, and a desirable quality for the rest of us.

There are ways to help your hair look better than it does now and to keep it feeling great over time. There are some gadgets that are approved by the FDA to help, including the lasercomb which uses laser therapy. If you’re looking to improve your general health whilst trying to help your hair – you’re in luck. A better diet with focus on the quality of nutritients in food will definitely help. If you want to look more like Orlando Bloom than Bruce Willis, read on!

Here’s what to eat:

  1. Foods containing Vitamin E
    Nutrition is straightforward – minerals and vitamins will help keep your hair strong and healthy. Foods such as nuts and cereals are often packed full of Vitamin E and can even help to combat hair loss.
  2. Fish
    Fish always seems to appear in articles about improving your diet – and for good reason. The nutrient in fish that can help your hair is called Omega-3. Omega-3 will promote glossy, shiny hair (to get that polished Zack Effron look). For someone who doesn’t have a lot of fish in their diet, Salmon is a great place to start. It’s uniquely tasty and quite versatile.
  3. Leafy Meals
    Whatever your diet currently involves, you might be able to add a few extra ingredients to it for a hair health boost. Spinach and other leafy, green vegetables, contains plenty of Iron (a key ingredient in all healthy hair meals) as well as the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin.
  4. Iron
    Iron can be found in a pint of Guinness – but in the true interests of health there’s plenty of iron in leafy vegetables as well as Beans and Pulses.

Products & Lifestyle

Your body naturally produces oils which make your hair shine. Don’t over-use products that can dry-out your hair and make sure you stay hydrated. Washing your hair every day can actually dry out your hair, depending on the products used. Certain chemicals contained within products including shampoo, conditioner, gels, waxes and sprays can inhibit the naturally healthy shine your body produces. If your lifestyle doesn’t give you time to be thoughtful about the food you eat then there are many supplements containing these nutrients and vitamins.

However – all of these ingredients can be incorporated into whatever your diet currently includes. Why not try a meal every week purely focused on your hair? A combination of Fish and Leafy vegetables should do the trick. If you want a healthy crop of shiny, thick hair then the answer is simple – eat healthier!
