|Mane Attraction| Foods For Healthy Hair

Want stronger and healthier hair but don't know how? What if we told you to just add a few foods to your diet and pow! Your hair will go from second fiddle to the MANE ATTRACTION!


There are plenty of foods that provide your hair with that extra boost. Here at The SASS we chose our top seven that work for us and hopefully it will do the same for you!

  • Walnuts- Did you know that walnuts are they only type of nut that has a significant amount of omega 3 fatty acids?!!! They also have copper which keeps your natural hair color looking bright and fabulous! They're also packed with biotin and vitamin E, which protect your hair from the sun.

  •  Salmon- Packed with protein and vitamin D this tasty cold water fish can make your hair super strong. Not mention that the omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon is needed by your body to grow hair and provides natural oils that keep your scalp and hair hydrated; since your body can't make these fatty acids on it's own salmon saves the day!

  • Eggs-They just don't make good omelets! Eggs are an amazing source of protein, and are loaded with four key minerals: iron, selenium, and sulfur. Out of all four of these minerals iron is at the top of the list, because it helps carry oxygen to hair follicles. Too little iron is called anemia and can cause extreme hair loss and nobody got time for that!

  • Sweet Potatoes- These yummy potatoes provide your body with a great source of antioxidant beta carotene, which your body flips into vitamin A. This helps protect and produce oils that sustain your scalp. Without vitamin A you scalp can become itchy and you can develop dandruff.

  • Bananas-Now you can enjoy that banana split without worrying about your figure because it helps your hair. That's a good trade off right? Bananas contain the mineral silica, which is said to improve the thickness of your hair. It also makes your hair more durable and stronger!

  • Beans- The next time you are at Chipotle ask for extra beans please! Beans provide your hair with iron rich protein. Lentil beans in particular play a major role in hair maintenance and support.

  • Dark Green Veggies- Spinach, broccoli, and greens oh my! These and other dark green veggies are packed with vitamins A and C which help produce sebum. Sebum is scalp oil that works as a natural hair conditioner.
