There has to be a unique balance of nutrients within us to support hair growth. Hair growth is supported by adequate levels of protein, iron, magnesium, vitamin D, and Omega 3 fatty acids.
Add these ten foods as well as more frequent meals to your diet to really get your hair growth popping. Please stop skipping breakfast and aim to eat recommended portions 5 to 6 times a day:
- Lean meats that have lower fat percentage such as chicken
- Dark leafy greens
- Nuts and seeds
- Sweet potatoes.
If you don’t eat meat, vegetarian options include adding more beans and tofu, quinoa, wheat germ, oats, and rice bran.
Removing these five things will also aid in leaving space for the nutritious foods that were listed above:
— Remove soda
— All fried foods
— Refined sugar
— White bread
— Dairy (specifically processed cheeses and high-fat milk-based foods).
Even though they are delicious, they add empty calories without adding vitamin content that your body needs to grow your magnificent mane. Sometimes it’s a hard choice — do I want this honey bun or my hairline?
Eat for your edges, mamas! Self-care with your food choices is always worth it.
