13 Essential Foods for Healthy Hair


Living a healthy lifestyle can reflect on your skin and hair. This means anything you eat can also affect the condition of your hair. Yes, it is time to minimize (or better yet, avoid) junk foods, like pizza, burgers, and fried dishes. For example, fatty and oily food can make our sebaceous glands more active, which can result to dandruff. Eating healthy can also give you healthy hair and scalp, and possibly bring back the luster of your hair. Most of what we need to grow healthy hair can be found in the foods we eat. If you want a healthy boost to your hair try HAIRFINITY hair vitamins to add essential nutrients to your hair to improve the look and feel of your hair. Here are some essential foods for healthy hair:

  • Salmon. Vitamin D and protein can result in stronger hair, and this fish has these nutrients. It also has omega-3 fatty acids, which can help your hair grow faster and prevent hair loss. To take advantage of these benefits, you can eat Salmon at least twice a week. You can enjoy it raw, grilled, baked or smoked. If you are not a fan of salmon though, other fatty fishes that can also prevent hair loss are sardines, herring, mackerel, and trout.  One daily serving of Hairfinity hair vitamins contains the same amount of Vitamin D as 1 oz of Salmon, 4 servings of mackerel, or 1 oz of trout.



  • Sweet potatoes. For healthy scalp and hair growth, beta carotene can greatly help. Beta carotene is converted to vitamin A, which is important for cell growth. Sweet potatoes have high concentration of this compound. Deficiency of this can result to dry skin or dandruff and dull hair. But note that too much of vitamin A can also lead to hair loss. Other foods rich in beta carotene are carrots, dark green lettuces, pumpkin, asparagus, and kale. Hairfinity Hair Vitamins has about the same amount of Vitamin A as you get from a half of sweet potato.
  • Beans. They can be a source of zinc, minerals, B vitamins, fiber, protein, and vitamin C, which are great for hair growth. They also have iron to prevent hair loss. If you are not a fan of beans, you always mix them in other dishes, like salads and side dishes. Pinto beans, considered one of the world’s healthiest foods contains vitamins B1 and B6.  Hairfinity Hair vitamins has the same amount of B1 as 11 cups of pinto beans.  In addition to B1 and B6, Hairfinity vitamins also contain B2, B3, and B12.




  • Avocado. The benefits that this fruit can give is widely known and it was the early Egyptians who discovered them. It contains vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, potassium, fiber, protein, folate, and copper. The fruit itself and its oil are very useful for both the skin and hair. It can promotes hair growth and prevents hair loss. It can also be used as a hair mask to moisturize the hair. Hairfinity vitamins contain the same amount of Vitamin C as about 5 avocados.




  • Walnuts. Omega-3 fatty acids, which promotes hair growth, can also be found in this type of nut. And to keep the natural color of your hair and to make it shiny, walnuts have copper. And since the hair is always exposed to damage, like sun exposure, pollution, blow dryer, curling iron and other heat styling tools, there is a need to protect the hair from cell damage. Biotin and vitamin E found in walnuts can take care of this. If you are not fond of eating nuts, try walnut oil, which you can mix in your food.  A serving of Hairfinity vitamins contains about the same amount of biotin as 4 servings of walnuts.




  • Oyster. This seafood is rich in zinc. Not having enough zinc in the body can lead to hair loss and even flaky, dry scalp. Oyster also has protein, which is also essential in having healthy hair. Protein can replace the hairs that you shed.
  • Eggs. They are loaded with vitamins A, D, and E. They are also a good source of protein, sulfur, and fatty acids, which can help bring back the luster of the hair. If you have hair loss problem, vitamin A and E in egg can take care of that. The protein in it can make hair follicles strong too. Vitamin B12 and sulfur are great for hair growth and both can be found in the egg yolk. Aside from eating it, you can also use it as a natural conditioner. For dry hair, you can apply egg on hair to moisturize. It leaves hair soft and smooth. It can also repair damage and prevent hair breakage. Using a protein rich conditioner such as Hairfinity Strengthening Amino Masque can help increase your hair’s strength, reduce porosity, and protect against split ends and breakage. This unique treatment is infused with amino acids, keratin protein, jojoba oil and more.
  • Sunflower seeds. They contain calcium, zinc, protein, selenium, omega 3-fatty acids, copper, B vitamins, vitamin E, biotin, potassium, iron, and magnesium, which can all help in preventing hair loss. Sunflower seeds can be eaten raw or mixed in dishes like salad or steamed vegetables. It is not advisable to eat too much of it though as it is also rich in calories and fats.
  • Lentils. These legumes are loaded with iron, protein, biotin, and zinc. The hair’s structure can be credited to keratin, which is hardened protein. Therefore, with protein, hair grows healthier and stronger.
  • Spinach. This leafy vegetable is packed with iron, vitamin c, beta carotene, and folic acid. Folic acid helps in producing red blood cells, while iron helps the red blood cells carry oxygen. Iron deficiency can cause anemia, which means there is not enough red blood cells in the blood. Symptoms of anemia include feeling weak and tired, headache, looking pale, and hair loss. Based on studies, women in their childbearing years are more likely to have iron deficiency due to the lost of iron in the blood through heavy monthly menstruation. Hairfinity Hair Vitamins contains about the same amount of folic acid as a serving of spinach.
  • Bell peppers. Vitamin C is known to be the best friend of the skin and hair, aside from the body’s immune system. Vitamin C helps in the absorption of iron, which ensures enough oxygen is transported to the hair follicles. Vitamin C is also responsible in producing collagen, a structural protein that makes skin tight and hair strong. Not having enough vitamin C in the body can result to dry hair and split ends. This anti-oxidant can strengthen the hair shaft and hair follicles to prevent breakage and hair loss.
  • Beef. For healthy hair, a good amount of protein in our body is needed. Beef is known to be loaded with protein, aside from B vitamins, zinc, and iron. Of course, due to health reasons, eating lean meat is a better choice. For hair growth, you can eat lean meat two to three times a week. It is also best to eat fresh meat than preserved ones. Beef can be enjoyed in a lot of ways and mixed in salads, soups, and main dishes. If you have gout or high cholesterol though and you are asked by your doctor to stay away from beef, there are still other foods that contain protein too.
  • Greek yogurt. It’s time to go to the grocery and look for low-fat Greek yogurt. It is high in calcium, zinc, protein, vitamin D, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, and vitamin B5, an ingredient often seen on hair products. All these nutrients can give you shiny, moisturized and strong hair. It can also make your scalp healthy, preventing dandruff. If you do not like the taste of yogurt, you can try mixing it with fruits, like berries. This fruit can even add benefits to your hair since it is a good source of vitamin C. You can also use greek yogurt as hair mask by massaging it on your scalp and leaving it for a few minutes.
