Let’s be honest, nothing gets your day off to a better start than having a good hair day! A beautiful Barnett puts an extra spring of confidence in your step and makes everything else feel right in the world. I don’t know about you but I am trying really hard to grow my hair but getting to that goal length is quite difficult and I was keen to know of any tips out there which will help me reach my desired length. So… the good news is, I’ve done my research and for anyone else in the same boat – here are some top tips. Enjoy!
It sounds like common sense but just as having a healthy diet will give you glowing skin, a great figure and boost your energy levels, it will also do wonders for your locks too. After all, I truly believe in the mantra that “you are what you eat.” I’ve also noticed that the more I eat of certain foods, my nails look healthier and my hair shinier and in better condition.
Likewise, on the other hand if I’ve not been paying proper attention to my diet and when I’ve cheated or slacked a little in the healthy diet department, suddenly my face becomes spotty, I lack energy and my hair looks dull and lacks lustre. So, here is some research about the best foods you can eat to make your hair grow. These three amazing foods are naturally rich in vitamin B and biotin which are essential for healthy and long locks. Here goes…
1. Walnuts and Almonds
Put the crisps down —nuts are one of the healthiest and easiest snacks to throw in your bag when you’re out and about and in danger of snacking on all things naughty! This brilliant snack is also responsible for boosting your biotin levels. Walnuts are a wonder food with high levels of omega-3 fatty acids (that nutrient we love for shiny hair), and they’re also rich in biotin and vitamin E, which helps protect your cells from damage. Walnuts also contain copper, a mineral that helps keep your natural hair colour lustrous and rich. Pass me the nuts!
2. Leafy Greens
This one really is a no brainer but I bet many of is still aren’t eating enough of them! Leafy greens should be top of the charts if you’re after healthy hair, a flat belly and clear skin. That’s because leafy greens such as spinach, Swiss chard and kale are extremely nutrient-rich. Swiss chard specifically is one of the top producers of biotin, the water-soluble B vitamin that is essential for healthy nails, skin and hair.
3. Halibut and Salmon
Salmon and Halibut are powerful foods recommended for overall body health as they are rich in vitamin D and protein, which are both necessary for healthy and strong hair. These omega-3 fatty acids rich foods are responsible for those shiny strands we find ourselves lusting after. Halibut is often called a “brain food,” as it also contains large amounts of natural biotin. You’ll notice a plethora of beauty benefits, including longer hair if you add these two beauties to your diet a little more.
It’s important to remember that having a balanced diet of all different kinds of fruits, vegetables, healthy grains, proteins and legumes (and lots of water) is the key to looking and feeling great. After all, you can’t just eat salmon and spinach all day and expect your body to feel its best. Also, it may take a few months of your body absorbing these nutrients for you to notice hair growth. But nonetheless, I guarantee you will notice some benefits along the way.
