Hair Super-foods

The 5 hair super-foods that you should add to your diet

‘You are what you eat’ You’ve heard it all before? We have too!!!!

When it comes to your tresses, it is not just about the magic hands of your hairdresser or the fabulous hair products that you use.  The health of your hair is also controlled by what you eat.  If you want super-shiny, uber-glossy healthy locks then we recommend that you add these 5 hair super-foods to your shopping trolley each week.




    Salmon is the ultimate hero-hair-food!  Bursting with iron, protein and Vitamin B12, it has incredible powers to boost healthy hair growth.  Added bonus….glowing skin and a happy, healthy mind!




Avocados contain over 25 vital nutrients including vitamins (A, B, C, E, and K) and minerals such as copper, potassium, iron, magnesium and phosphorus.  They are powerful fruits that offer all sorts of health benefits.

Their fats, vitamins and omega 3 fatty acids encourage beautiful, glossy hair and reduce the probability of hair loss and other hair-related issues.  They are high in Vitamin B and E which is known to strengthen and protect hair strands as well as repairing the scalp.

Brazil Nuts

BRAZIL NUTS #hairsuperfoods

    Zinc deficiency is a key cause of hair-loss so its logical that eating brazil nuts that are high in zinc can help prevent hair-loss.  You will also find the alpha-linolenic omega-3 fatty acid in these nuts and selenium which is great for healthy scalps. 



Eggs are loaded with protein, high in Biotin and Vitamin B 12.  Protein is essential for the repair and construction of your hair.  Opt for poached or hard boiled for the healthiest intake of this hair super-food!
