Dry Hair

Beauty is more than skin deep. To really look your best, it's just as important to feed your body with beauty-boosting foods as it is to apply creams, serums, and masks.

Restoring your strands may be as easy to correct as a trip to the grocery store. Incorporating some new foods into your diet and cutting some of the old ones out can have a dramatic effect on the look and feel of your hair.

Dry hair can be due in part to a lack of vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential to the induction of the genes that control the process called keratinization, which is part of the cycle of how hair grows. But if you’re not getting enough vitamin A or the right proportions of it, your hair can become dry. 

 

How to correct it: Load up on foods rich in essential fatty acids and healthy fats. Foods that are high in omega-3 and -6 fatty acids like linoleic acid will ensure proper hydration to the hair. Also, make sure you drink at least one to two liters of water per day to keep hair supple.

 

Foods to include fish like tuna, salmon, and trout; flaxseed; walnuts, fruits, and vegetables.

 

Foods to avoid: processed foods
