Unfortunately we are currently living in uncertain times, and we hope you are well and stay safe. While we are on nationwide lockdown, it doesn’t mean our hair has to suffer. We are going to run through some of the foods you may have in your pantry that have plenty of benefits for your hair!
Eggs - Eggs have been in short supply on supermarket shelves as many of us have stockpiled for the coming weeks. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on some, you are in luck as eggs are a great source of Protein. More than 90% of our hair content is made up of protein, making this nutrient vital to maximising your hairs potential growth. Eggs are also full of Biotin and Vitamin B, which play major roles in the production of your hair. All of these nutrients are key elements to functions all over the body too!
Baked Beans - Another food we have been stockpiling in our masses in the UK. The lowly Baked Beans are actually a powerhouse of nutrients that can benefit your hair. Iron is one of those nutrients and is actually one of the most important nutrients across the whole body. Iron is used in the production of haemoglobin (red blood cells). These are the transport vessels for Oxygen across the whole body. Without an oxygen supply none of our cells would be able to perform their functions. More than 14% of women in the UK suffer from Anaemia (Iron deficiency) according to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. Eating more Baked Beans could help reduce that figure!
Chicken - Fresh chicken has become another food we are snapping up and filling our fridges and freezers with. A lean meat packed with protein, chicken is one of the healthiest protein sources available. As well as being pack with protein, you will also find great sources of Zinc, Iron and Vitamin B to help to keep your hair as healthy as it can be. Zinc is used by the body in hair tissue growth and repair. It also is used to keep the oil glands on the scalp healthy and producing sebum to protect the scalp and hair follicle.
Pasta - Another sold out food item in the last 2 weeks has been pasta. Pasta provides us with an essential nutrient used all over the body, Carbohydrates. This is the bodies primary energy source, and the energy source are hair needs to produce a healthy hair follicle. A pasta dish with a healthy serving of chicken, will ensure that you are reaching your daily intake of carbs and protein. This will put you on the right track to make sure your hair is as healthy as it can be.
Chopped Tomatoes - Tomatoes are rich in Vitamins A and C as well as antioxidants. The role of antioxidants is to reduce inflammation which can be seen in the cells at the base of your hair follicles. Inflammation is seen in the hair follicles when DHT interacts with the cells. Vitamins A and C are necessary for optimal cell function across the whole body, including in the hair follicle. With your Chicken, pasta and chopped tomatoes you a hair nutrient rich dish ready to go!
