It’s the start of a new year. Everyone has fitness goals, save money goals, get closer to God goals, healthy hair goals, and the list goes on. But when it comes to hair goals, what are people looking to achieve?
One crucial fact that everyone should know is that healthy hair starts from the inside out! Yep, healthy hair care begins with feeding the body nutritional foods like fruits and vegetables and drinking a lot of water.
So what foods should you eat that contribute to hair care and growth? What about fresh berries? I love starting my morning with yogurt and berries. I call it The Natural Cole Berry Bowl! This meal packed with vitamins and antioxidants and you can make it with a few simple ingredients:
Yogurt (my favorite brand is Fage 0%) = 100 calories
Raw Blueberries (1/4 cup) = 21 calories
Raw Blackberries (15) = 62 calories
Raw Almonds (11-12) = 81 calories
Chia Seeds (1 tablespoon) = 60 calories
Honey (1 tablespoon) = 64 calories
Total = 388 calories
Blueberries help stimulate hair growth, high in fiber and vitamin C. Vitamin C is needed to produce collagen which makes up protein fibers in the hair.
Blackberries are rich in vitamin A which helps to regulate cell production of retinoic acid in the hair follicle. These delicious berries are also known to help with painful menstrual symptoms. So ladies stock up!
Raw Almonds contain vitamin E, biotin, and copper. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that works with vitamin A to strengthen and add elasticity to the hair.
Chia Seeds contain vitamins A, B, E and D. Vitamin D is necessary to metabolize calcium. Calcium strengthens bones, teeth, and hair. Ten minutes of sun 2 to 3 times a week can also produce vitamin D.
Honey contains vitamin B6, and other minerals such as calcium, copper, and zinc. Zinc is an essential co-factor for multiple enzymes and is involved with important functional activities in the hair follicle.
Yogurt is pack with nutrients and vitamins such as B-2 and B-12. BB-12 helps to level hair loos
