But what exactly makes beautiful hair? Is it all in our genes, or is it just that some people are just blessed with it? If you're struggling to maintain your mane, don't give up and think you're just unlucky in the genetic lottery because here's some good news: awesome hair comes with good food!

 

Yep, you can have majestic waves and curls in no time but first, you have to add these foods to your diet:

 

Fatty fish

Fatty fish like salmon, sardines, and tuna are good sources of omega 3, which is a fatty acid responsible for keeping our hearts healthy. Omega 3 also keeps our hair shiny and full by minimizing hair loss and breakage.

 

Cinnamon

Cinnamon increases overall blood flow, helping stimulate our skin and scalp with nutrient-rich blood that supplies our hair follicles with oxygen and nutrients.

 

Greek yogurt

Protein plays a huge role in maintaining your hair. It helps produce keratin, which strengthens hair strands, preventing breakage. Greek yogurt packs 10 grams of protein per serving, which makes it a good default snack for your midnight fridge visits. It's also packed with the vitamin B5 that lessens hair thinning and loss.

 

Dark leafy vegetables

Dark green leafy vegetables like spinach and kale is packed with a lot of vitamin A, iron, beta carotene, folate, and vitamin C, which are nutrients that moisturizes your crown preventing it from looking dull, frizzy, and lifeless. Good thing dark greens are also in chips and pesto!

 

Lean meats

Lean meat is also a good source of protein which helps us generate new hair. Without enough of it, our hair growth stops and eventually thins down. Lean meats provide you with high amounts of protein with the least saturated fats possible.
