Veggies for Healthy Hair

Created on Monday, 25 June 2012 08:30

Dark leafy greens- swiss chard, kale, and spinach, are great sources of Vitamins A and C, which the body needs to produce Sebum. Sebum is a natural conditioner for your hair. Beans and legumes are also good sources of protein which help promote hair growth. They also contain iron, zinc, and biotin. Brittle hair is partially a result of biotin deficiencies. Include these vegies with some salmon- which is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, and you have a wonderful answer for a healthy scalp! With the heat of summer upon us, our hair takes the abuse, being on top. So wear some type of hat or covering, eat those dark leafy greens, and revive those locks!
