Food For Hair

Posted on January 10 2018

They say that you are what you eat, and when it comes to haircare, it’s actually true. Despite what commercials and pyramid schemers want you to believe, the key to perfect, shiny hair does not come in the form of a pill. Rather, everything you need to have picture-perfect hair can be found on the shelves of your local grocery store. Gone are the days of needing a million different products to tame your various salon-perfected hairstyles; thanks to a healthy diet, natural hairstyles are making a comeback. 

Citrus fruits are good for your hair! 

It should really be no surprise that healthy foods = healthy hair. In fact, if you’re looking to improve the quality of, well, anything, the easiest solution is to eat better. Cutting out processed foods and excess salt and fat will do wonders for your appearance (seriously, did you ever think we’d be embracing our natural hairstyles?!) -- whether it’s your nails, your skin, or your hair you’re worried about. A healthy, balanced diet will do wonders for how you look and how you feel. Two birds, one stone. Praise be.


  1. Citrus Fruits

Stock up on tangerines and oranges, as citrus fruits can do wonderful things for your locks. For starters, your body will be able to absorb iron thanks to the Vitamin C content. Plus, Vitamin B12 (found in fruits like tangerines) slows down the greying process, encourages hair growth, and reduces hair loss. Basically, tangerines are magical fruits. They say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but it sounds like a tangerine a day keeps the Rogaine at bay. With such thick, luscious locks, you’ll be rocking hairstyles like the French Braid and top knot with serious confidence. #blessed

 

  1. Spinach

Time to get your Popeye on! For many women, the reason behind hair loss can be a mineral deficiency. The most common? Iron. Whether you’re blending spinach into smoothies, incorporating it into omelettes, or going the old fashioned route by eating salads, just be sure that this superfood is a strong presence in your diet. Thanks to spinach, you'll look great and feel even better.

 

  1. Cinnamon

Cinnamon is kind of magical in that it brings oxygen and nutrients to your follicles, thanks to the fact that it improves circulation. Say it with me now: French Toast creates healthy hair. How amazing.

 

  1. Eggs

Want longer hair (and stronger nails!)? Better get to scrambling. Eggs (and also almonds, salmon, and avocados) contain biotin which promotes hair growth. Just imagine the hairstyles you’ll be able to rock with long, luscious locks. Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!

 

  1. Oysters

Not just an aphrodisiac! Oysters (along with beef, lobster, and crab) contain zinc. If your body doesn’t have enough zinc… bad things -- like hair loss -- can happen. So, best get to shucking.

 

  1. Nuts

Another superfood! Cashews have biotin, which encourages hair growth. Pistachios are known to help with male pattern baldness. And walnuts contain elastin, which help prevent your hair from breaking. So, next time you’re in need of a snack, you better think twice before grabbing for the chips.

 

When it comes down to it, most natural foods will have some sort of positive influence on your appearance. Skip the McDonalds and instead opt for a spinach salad with salmon. Your hair (and everything else) will thank you.

    Hi Patt!
    Thank you for your comment! False eyelashes are so realistic these days and are a great option for anyone who wants thick, full lashes… regardless of hair loss! You ask “how to get a good fit for a wig”, so I have provided a link to a video we created that answers this question.

    Some people have temporary hair loss, while others have permanent. I don’t know if and how long it will take your hair to grow back, but wigs are such a great solution for this kind of thing. I hope I helped answer your questions!!
     
    Have a great Tuesday!

    My name is Patt and I’m 68 almost 69 years old. I’ve been married 52 years. I started losing my hair by the handfuls in March 2018. It literally happened almost overnight. By April, I was almost bald and decided to buzz it off and get a wig. I went to a dermatologist where they did blood tests and scalp biopsy. I was diagnosed with autoimmune disease. I believe it was brought on by stress and nutrition. The 3 months prior my Dad was very ill and passed away. He was 91 and ready to go to Heaven, but I wasn’t eating right and lost about 10-13 lbs. I recently started losing my eyelashes. I haven’t got false eyelashes but I’m going to have to because I really look blank without them. How do you get a good fit for a wig? Mine looked cute when I first got it, but seems flat and not like it did when I got it. It’s synthetic and a Raquel Welch brand. Any tips on the false eyelashes? Also what are my chances of my hair and eyelashes coming back and how long does it usually take? I really appreciate your input. Thank you so much!
