As we all know, certain foods play an important role in our overall health, but evidenced research is now suggesting that they can also impact the appearance of our hair too. Like it affects our skin, eating a balanced diet enriched with proteins and nutrients can help us achieve the dreamy locks we’ve been hoping for.

Here are 5 foods that will boost your hair health!
1.Fish – Fish is one of the most important foods for healthier hair. For anyone that has the goal of growing stronger hair, eating fish will help you on your way as it is filled with beneficial proteins. If you don’t like fish, try a fish oil supplement instead, as studies have found that it could also help reduce hair loss.
2.Spinach– in case you didn’t know, spinach contains oils that could help moisturise your scalp. It’s also a plant-based source of iron which is said to be essential for hair growth.

3.Berries–When you eat berries, you’re giving your body enough vitamin C to produce collagen. This is an essential protein that keeps your hair strong and helps prevent it from becoming brittle and breaking.
4.Sweet potato– if you want your hair to grow longer as well as thicker, you should consume more foods with vitamin A. Sweet potatoes contain more than enough of this vitamin and can be consumed boiled, roasted, baked or microwaved.

5.Eggs– for the production of a hair protein called keratin, you need more biotin. If you’re wondering what keratin does for your hair, it makes it look fuller and glossier. Eggs will give you more than enough biotin, so eat them on a regular basis and are truly one of the best foods for healthier hair.

Whilst these tips are beneficial, it is always essential that any food you incorporate into your lifestyle should be part of a balanced diet and any significant, persistent changes to your hair health should always be discussed with a medical professional.
