Good Food for Good Hair!

Sweet potatoes

Healthy and delicious, sweet potatoes contain high amounts of vitamin A, which plays a role in hair growth and helps keep the scalp moisturized for a better chance at healthy hair. Try them roasted, mashed, or even grilled!


Tomatoes and other bright red fruits and vegetables are an excellent source of vitamin A, which supports sebum production. Sebum is the body’s natural moisturizer and it plays an important role in preventing dry hair and scalp. Vitamin A is fat-soluble so eating it with a source of fat improves absorption. Add sliced tomatoes to a panini or enjoy it with mozzarella, basil and balsamic vinaigrette for a delicious, flavorful appetizer at your next summer gathering.

Homegrown tomatoes


Spinach is a superstar food that contains vitamin C, vitamin A, and iron. Iron plays a key role in the body’s ability to produce healthy blood cells and deliver oxygen to the hair. Not getting enough iron can lead to hair loss. If you’re looking for ways to add more greens to your eating routine, spinach is the way to go. These dark leafy greens take any stew or soup to the next level.



Though everyone knows red meat is an excellent food source of iron, you can also get iron from plant-based foods like lentils and black beans. Pair these with a vitamin C source, such as tomatoes for better absorption. Iron deficiency anemia is especially common among women and can be a cause of hair loss. If you are deficient in iron and food sources aren’t helping, speak with your health provider about whether or not you need to take a supplement.



Eggs have so many benefits for the hair because they contain biotin (a vitamin that prevents thinning and hair loss) and vitamin A. Eggs are also a complete protein, meaning they are a source of all of the amino acids (building blocks of proteins) the body needs for many functions, including hair growth and strength. Eggs are extremely versatile so there’s something for everyone. Whether you’re making a spinach scramble, a vegetable quiche or a yummy omelets.



Seeds are a good source of vitamin E which plays a role in maintaining healthy skin–including the scalp. The scalp is the foundation for healthy hair growth, so add a handful of sunflower seeds to your next salad for a little extra crunch!”



Walnuts contain both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are considered essential because the body doesn’t make them on its own. These fatty acids are responsible for hair elasticity and strength. They can also protect the hair from the damaging effects of UV sun rays. Not getting enough can result in scaly, flaky scalp and hair loss. My favorite ways to enjoy walnuts are toasted and tossed on a hearty salad or as a crunchy crust on fish!



Many of us eat vitamin C-rich oranges to support our immune system during a cold but, vitamin C has another important job – collagen production. Collagen is a crucial protein for hair strength and elasticity, meaning less breakage and split ends. Have oranges on hand in your fruit basket for those busy days when you need a sweet, nutritious snack.


In order to determine the best foods for hair growth and hair health, it is important to know which vitamins and nutrients are important for the hair growth process. Ensuring a healthy and varied diet, which includes sources of antioxidants, iron, vitamins and minerals, can make hair strong, shiny and promote growth. Ensure you make the right dietary changes for your healthy hair.
