5 Best Foods For Hair Health

Foods For Hair Health

Longing for thicker, healthier hair? Eat more of these nutrient-dense whole foods for hair health!

The process of maintaining healthy hair is incredibly complex and can be influenced by a multitude of factors: genetics, hormones, lifestyle, stress, and, of course, diet.

Our hair, skin and nails often serve as mirrors reflecting our inner health, with changes in appearance signalling underlying imbalances or deficiencies within our bodies. This is where diet plays a crucial role. There are certain nutrient-dense foods for hair health that you can add to your diet that are also beneficial to your overall health.

By nourishing our bodies with a balanced intake of vitamins, minerals, proteins, and healthy fats, we can support our hair from the inside out.

Factors that Influence Hair Health

Whilst there is an intricate interplay between diet and hair health, it’s really important to acknowledge that nutrition is just one piece of the puzzle, albeit a very important one. In a nutshell;

  • Genetics can play a significant role in hair thickness, texture, and growth rate.
  • Hormones, during puberty, pregnancy, menopause, and the release of androgens like testosterone and dihydrotestosterone, can affect hair growth cycles and texture.
  • Nutrition supports the hair follicles and the production of strong, healthy hair

So, the one thing that we can easily control in this equation is the food that we eat, specifically increasing the consumption of foods;

  • High in protein
  • Rich in vitamins A, C, & E
  • Containing biotin
  • Minerals like iron, zinc, selenium, iodine, and silica
  • Plus essential fatty acids like Omega 3’s

Best Foods for Hair Health

My favourite foods for these hair-nourishing benefits include:

  1. Eggs: are an incredible powerhouse of nutrition and one of the best foods for hair health. They’re high in protein, biotin, iron, zinc, selenium, phosphorus, potassium, Vitamins A, D, E, B2, B6, B12, and folate amongst others. Choose organic or, even better, keep your own chickens to get the most nutrient-dense eggs and a symbiotic relationship.
  2. Seaweeds: one of my favourite foods to add to your diet. Not only are they a great source of vitamins, but they are also packed with minerals that are vital for maintaining healthy hair follicles, promoting growth, and preventing hair loss. Notably iodine, copper, selenium, magnesium, iron, calcium, and zinc. Add seaweeds to your diet such as wakame, kelp, bladderwrack, dulse, and the algae spirulina. Our Vitamin Sea blend is an excellent source of these micro minerals.
  3. Hemp seeds and oily fish: (ordinarily I would say salmon too, but unless you are eating wild-caught it’s best to avoid). Omega 3’s are the oils that fish and hemp have in common, which are incredible and essential for humans. In regards to hair, omega-3 fatty acids help nourish the hair follicles, support scalp health, promote growth, and prevent hair loss.
  4. Nuts and seeds: another favourite food group of mine; nuts and seeds are rich in vitamin E (particularly almonds, walnuts, and sunflower seeds). This antioxidant helps to prevent damage caused by free radicals. Nuts and seeds are also high in zinc, which is an essential mineral for hair tissue growth and repair.
  5. Vegetables: particularly the ones high in beta-carotene like sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, carrots, broccoli, spirulina, pumpkin, and capsicums amongst others. Beta-carotene is a precursor to vitamin A, and is essential for cell growth which can help maintain a healthy scalp and promote sebum production.

Incorporating these nutrient-rich foods into your diet can help contribute to your hair’s health and growth, in addition to your overall well-being. 

Every day, aim to include a variety of foods that are high in nutrients, keep hydrated, and minimise stress, as all can further promote the health and appearance of your hair.
