Eat Right for Healthy Hair

Amino acids, fatty acids, and vitamins all contribute to healthy hair.

Amino acids make up proteins. The most important amino acids for hair growth are cysteine and methionine. You will find methionine in sesame seeds, fish, and meats; cysteine is in eggs, milk, cheese, chicken, turkey, duck, whey protein, red peppers, garlic, brussel sprouts, oats, and wheat.

Fatty acids are in natural fats and oils. Effects of a fatty acid deficiency include dry hair, change in hair colour, and a red and flaky scalp.

Vitamins that affect hair include:

vitamin A: carrots, broccoli, liver
guards hair follicles
biotin: beans, bread, fish, legumes
used to produce cells, fatty acids, and amino acids
vitamin C: vegetables, fruits (specifically citrus)
necessary for healthy collagen (a type of protein) around hair follicles
vitamin E: nuts, corn, asparagus
provides physical stability to the membrane, or surface, of cells
folic acid: spinach, lettuce, dried beans
important for cell division and growth in hair follicles
B-complex vitamins: potatoes, bananas, tuna, turkey
help nourish hair follicles
