5 Food Secrets to Gorgeous, Healthy Hair Most People Don’t Realize

5 Food Secrets to Gorgeous, Healthy Hair Most People Don’t Realize
Everyone wants a head full of healthy hair. I mean, who doesn’t?

Having healthy, gorgeous hair is just one of the many things that we all want. We spend a lot of money each year on hair care products that claim to make our hair healthy and vibrant.

Unfortunately, many of those hair care products contain chemicals and toxins that not only harm your hair, but can also seep into your body and harm your health as well.

If you’re not fond of having chemicals and toxins seep into your body just from trying to care for you hair, you’re not alone. Instead of using store bought hair products, you can actually EAT your way to healthy and shiny hair!

Best Foods To Eat For Hair Care


Avocados are one of the healthiest foods that you can eat. We all know that they are loaded with good fats and are high in calories. Avocadoes contain large amounts of vitamins A, D and E, as well as omega-3 fatty acids. You can either eat an avocado every day or you can opt to cook with avocado oil when you saute veggies!

Fatty Fish

Be sure to opt for fish that is full of omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids not only provide benefits for you body, but they are also amazing for your hair. The shafts of your hair are made up of 3% omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in the membranes of your scalp. These fatty acids help to preserve the natural oils that help to keep your scalp and hair hydrated and prevent dryness. Look for fish such as herring, sardines, trout and salmon.


Coconuts are amazing for your hair. The water in coconuts is full of potassium that works as an electrolyte and helps to move nutrients throughout your cells, even into your hair. Coconut water also helps to naturally hydrate your hair.


You may not realize it, but eating eggs is an important part of keeping your hair healthy. Eggs contain sulfur, which is an important nutrient for healthy hair. Sulfur is needed for the production of collagen, which helps to improve the condition of your hair and keratin, which is an essential protein in your hair that helps to keep the hair shafts healthy.


You may have been told growing up that you need to eat your spinach so you can be healthy and strong. Your parents were absolutely right. Although we know that spinach is healthy for our body, it is also healthy for your hair. It contains vitamins A and C, which are used by your body to produce oil in your scalp and increase hair growth. If you have a deficiency in either vitamin A or C, you will start to see your hair thin and become brittle.
