Hair diet

For healthy, shiny, long hair:

At an average, hair grows about 1/2 inch per month. So in a year that's about 6 inches. Think of all that your hair has gone through (heat, environment, washing, brushing..) Take care of your hair, it is not going to grow rapidly over night but you can assist in the growth process.

Since your hair is made up of almost 90% protein, keeping that in our diet will help keep hair healthy. Even though, hair is considered dead protein out of the scalp, you can still help in a healthy growth.

What is good for your body is good for your hair!

A lack of protein in our diet can cause thinning of hair and a slow down in the growth cycle. Goes the other way around as well. A protein rich diet will result in improved hair growth.
Good food sources that contain protein are :fish, eggs, beans, yogurt and soy.  Soy not only strengthens hair, but helps it grow.

Vitamins and minerals are a major role in healthy hair too! Include these supplements:

Take care of yourself and your hair!
