- Salmon for Shine – Fish like salmon, sardines, and mackerel are packed with healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Your body can’t make these healthy fats, so you have to get them from food or supplements. They help protect you from disease, but your body also needs them to grow hair and keep it shiny.
- Eggs are rich in biotin, a B vitamin essential for hair growth and overall scalp health.
- Pork tenderloin is rich in B vitamins — folate, B6, and B12. These vitamins are involved in the creation of red blood cells, which carry oxygen and nutrients to all body cells, including those of the scalp, follicles, and growing hair.
- Lentils – are a great vegetarian source of iron-rich protein, which I recommend for two reasons. First, protein is necessary for all cell growth, including hair cells. Hair gets its structure from hardened proteins called keratin. Without enough protein for keratin, hair grows more slowly, and the individual strands that do grow are weaker.
- Tofu, soybeans, starchy beans, and black-eyed peas – These play the same role as Lentils for hair health.
- Red, yellow, and green bell peppers – these are a colorful, delicious source of vitamin C, which is necessary for hair health for many reasons.
- Sweet Potatoes – This has Beta-carotene of which is converted to vitamin A in the body, and vitamin A is necessary for all cell growth, including hair.
- Oysters – The mineral zinc is involved in tissue growth and repair — and that includes hair growth.
