What to eat for healthy hair

Posted by

Just like your skin, your hair is made from Keratin; a family of fibrous structural proteins. And, just like skin, the condition of your hair is an outward sign of inside health.

We’ve compiled a list of superfoods that can give your hair the essential nutrients to maintain the health of your hair.

Fruits and Vegetables

Fruits such as oranges, kiwi fruit, papaya and strawberries are packed with Vitamin C which is an essential nutrient involved in the repair of tissue and the enzymatic production of certain neurotransmitters.

Vegetables like carrots and sweet potato are rich in Vitamin A.  Vitamin A has multiple functions: it is important for growth and development, for the maintenance of the immune system and good vision.


Eggs are a great source of both protein and biotin, which stimulates hair growth. Eggs are an extremely versatile food and can be added to almost any meal.

Nuts & Seeds

Another food type high in protein is to incorporate nuts and seeds into your diet. They are also packed with healthy fats to keep your hair looking shiny, lustrous and strong.
