Healthy, beautiful hair doesn’t just happen. It takes concerted effort on your part to inform yourself about healthy choices, and it also requires firm determination to be able to follow through with making the necessary changes that will result in benefits. And interestingly enough, many of the nutrients that benefit hair also contribute to beautiful skin and a healthy body. So what are some healthy choices that can make your hair, mind and body healthier and happier?
1. Eat fewer processed foods and opt for foods that are closer to their natural state.
I don’t mean raw – that’s a really good idea, but you don’t have to go that far. What I’m referring to is food that has been minimally or not at all processed by means of chemical additives and preservatives. For example, instead of reaching for that bag of chips that has MSG, “natural flavors” and other additives as well as large amounts of sodium and trans fats, opt for the bag of chips that contains only potatoes, sunflower oil, and and has a low sodium content. Of course, this means paying very close attention to nutrition labels and product packaging. But a small change like this one will protect your heart, lower blood pressure, and ensure that your hair and body experience improved hydration.
