Eat Your Fruits and Veggies for Healthier Hair

Eating fruits and vegetables may contribute to healthier hair. Many citrus fruits (such as oranges, lemons, and grapefruit), darkly pigmented fruits (such as cherries, blueberries, cranberries, pomegranates, raspberries and plums), and vegetables (like broccoli, greens, and peas) are rich in Vitamin C and bioflavonoids, many of which are antioxidants. Antioxidants help to increase circulation to the scalp which encourages hair growth. 


There are many ways to add fruits and vegetables to your diet including eating fresh fruits and vegetables, drinking nutritional juices, eating dried fruits, and taking nutritional supplements. Some of my favorite ways to add fruits and vegetables to my diet are as follows: 


Fresh salads with lots of dark green leafy vegetables. My local grocery store carries "Fresh Express" salads in a bag. I look for the ones with dark green leafy vegetables. I open the bag, dump it in a bowl, add chopped tomatoes, sunflower seeds, a little parmesan cheese, and my favorite salad dressing. This makes a tasty side dish that is rich in antioxidants and good for the hair. 


A bowl of hot oatmeal with lots of dried fruit. My favorite way to do this is to prepare some organic quick cooking oatmeal with an equal amount of dried fruit rich in antioxidants like. It makes a tasty breakfast treat, rich in antioxidants, and hair healthy.
