We all know this proverb. Especially for our hair, this is true: Not only the care from the outside is essential for strong and healthy hair, but also the supply of nutrients through the right diet.
Today we introduce you to some foods that also strengthen your hair from within.
Salmon is particularly rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. These are very important for our body, they also have a positive effect on the brain metabolism and the cardiovascular system. Since our body can not make it ourselves, we have to eat it daily with food. Salmon is good for the hair above all because the circulation is stimulated by the omega-3 fatty acids. A well-perfused scalp is the key to good hair growth ?
Incidentally, the myRapunzel hair oil contains any amount of unsaturated omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
The right foods make you and your hair radiate from within.
Like salmon, they are very rich in omega-3 fatty acids. They also donate biotin and vitamin E. Biotin deficiency can lead to hair loss, while vitamin E promotes hair growth.
Our hair oil contains a very high amount of vitamin E.
Dark green vegetables
Green vegetables contain a lot of iron, folic acid and vitamin C. Folic acid in particular helps hair growth by stimulating cell and tissue renewal.
Vegetables: broccoli, chard, kale, spinach
Orange fruits and vegetables
There are lots of beta-carotene in orange fruits and vegetables. This is transformed into vitamin A during digestion by the body. This in turn has a major role in the process of renewal of the skin – including the scalp!
Fruits and vegetables: apricots, pumpkin, carrots, mango, sweet potatoes, red peppers
The zinc and biotin contained in oatmeal prevents hair loss. Zinc plays a large part in the formation of collagen, which helps the body to anchor the hair in the scalp. As with biotin, zinc deficiency can lead to hair loss.
If you build in the morning the right kind of fruit and oatmeal in his breakfast, you have already done something for healthy and strong hair.
You have an inflamed or greasy scalp? The vitamin B6 contained in mushrooms can help to alleviate this. It plays an important role in the regulation of sebum production and also has anti-inflammatory effects.
Homemade hair masks often contain eggs. This also makes sense, because our hair is mostly made of keratin, which is a protein. A protein-rich egg strengthens the hair so both from the outside and from the inside. Furthermore, eggs are rich in amino acids. One of these, cysteine, helps the hair protect itself from harmful solar radiation and can also increase the thickness of individual strands of hair.
