What is your hair health telling you about your diet.
Your hair looks dull?
Do you find yourself staring in the mirror, noticing that your hair lacks vibrancy and shine? This could be an indication that you need more healthy fats in your diet. Omega-3 fatty acids and monounsaturated fats are essential for overall health and can help give your hair a boost. Try loading up on salmon, avocado, flaxseeds, chia seeds, and nuts to improve the health of your hair.
Your scalp is dry?
If your scalp is constantly itchy and flaky, it could be a sign that you are lacking essential fatty acids. Omega-3s and omegas-6s are important for the health of your follicles, and can help bring moisture back to your hair and scalp. Get more of these fatty acids by eating more fish, flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, or taking fish oil supplements.
Your hair is super thin?
If your hair has become thin throughout, it could be an indication that you are not getting enough protein. Hair cells are made up of amino acids, which are the broken down form of protein, so if you don't have enough in your diet, you may start to lose more hair than normal. Ensure your hair is full and strong by eating a diet rich in protein, such as fish, eggs, poultry, beef, and dairy, or vegetarian-friendly sources like nuts, beans, and whole grains.
