Certain foods can help your curly hair styles be stunning by nourishing your strands from the inside.
According to Hilary Parker's article Top 10 Foods for Healthy Hair at WebMD, these incredible edibles feed your scalp, promote the production of sebum, and provide protein, iron, zinc, and B-vitamins to support hair growth.
Nutrients are the Foundation for Healthy Hair Growth
In the article, Dietitian, Dawn Jackson Blatner explains that hair grows ¼ to ½ inch per month and the source of that new hair growth comes from the nutrients we eat.
Blatner adds, "If you eat a healthy diet, you will grow stronger and healthier cells throughout your entire body -- inside and out."
And, while beauty supplements may be available on store shelves, Dermatologist, Dr. Paradi Mirmirani, recommends that people should attempt to get their nutrients from food.
So First Healthy Food for Curly Hair Styles: Salmon
I’m attempting to eat non-processed foods so I can have a flat stomach because along with exercise, what one eats is an essential part of dropping the pounds.
So salmon is a great option since I actually like it and it will help with my weight loss.(There are few foods that I don’t like, hence the tightening of the abs!)
Omega 3 Fatty Acids and your Scalp
Salmon contains omega 3 fatty acids which promote scalp health. A lack of them can lead to dry scalp.
If you are a vegetarian, Andrea Giancoli, spokesperson for the ADA recommends ground flax seed for plant based omega 3 fats.
