What you put into your body is just as important as what you put onto it. When your body is deficient in vital nutrients, our hair can sometimes take a turn for the worse. At times, our hair is the very first sign of nutritional deficiencies in your body. If you are suffering from hair thinning or loss, I would encourage you to look into your eating habits first.
TOP 3 FOODS FOR THINNING HAIR
1. SALMON- This nutrient rich food has very high amounts of Vitamin D, which can help combat hair loss or thinning. We get Vitamin D from the sun, but there are also many foods that contain this vital nutrient. Salmon is also very high in Omega 3's, which help with shine and luster.
2. BELL PEPPERS- These little gems can be overlooked at times for nutritional benefits. Bell Peppers contain very high amounts of Vitamin C. Can you believe that they actually have higher amounts of Vitamin C than Oranges! When peppers are allowed to ripen you can maximize the amount of Vitamin C in them. Make sure you don't overcook, the heat can damage valuable nutrients.
3. WALNUTS- Walnuts contain the highest amounts of omega 6 fatty acids. If that wasn't good enough they are also high in protein and zinc. Walnuts help to strengthen and reduce hair loss. If your usually on the run, they can be a great snack!
