WebMD Food For Healthy Hair: The Afro Chic Remix

I was doing some research on ways to keep my hair healthy and came across an article on WebMD entitled “Top 10 Foods for Healthy Hair”. I’m not sure how accurate this list is but I do incorporate these certain foods in my diet that has in fact played an important role to my hair, surprisingly.

WebMD’s Top 10 Foods for Healthy Hair Remixed

  1. Salmon – I eat Salmon at least once, maybe twice a week
  2. Dark Green Vegetables-  The oils are supposed to help produce your body’s natural conditioner
  3. Beans- Yes the poop food, Kidney beans and lentils are a good source of protein and can promote growth
  4. Nuts- The vitamins in these bad boys are to help with hair loss
  5. Poultry- Chicken is clearly in my diet so not to worry, more protein!!!
  6. Eggs- Protein baby!
  7. Oysters- gross, but if you are seafood lover I’d try it!
  8. Low-Fat Dairy Products- The calcium in your glass of milk can help with not only bones but hair growth
  9. Carrots- The vitamin A helps with vision and scalp, I eat them like crazy because I’m blind as a bat

Whether you believe this or not, it is important to be aware with what you put in your mouth because it could affect you hair and skin tremendously. I’ve taken biotin 1000mg and it’s okay, but I don’t like to rely on swallowing pills when I can start changing my diet to benefit my skin and hair. I don’t know about you but a McDouble is not going to be your best bet to that long curly hair you’ve dreamed of.

    Thank you for pointing out the importance of food on all our body parts, not just the ones we usually think of. This is a time of year when so many people go on these crazy diets or do unhealthy versions of a fast in order to lose weight, not realizing that we need those nutrients for our entire body. It’s not just about a quick fix to getting long, curly beautiful hair. It’s also about maintaining a healthy lifestyle and that includes paying attention to what you eat.
