Getting our “Natural Strands” to it’s healthiest state is a job, it takes time, patience, love, research, trial and error, repeat big chops, the list could probably go on forever. In the middle of all of that chaos we seem to forget how important it is to have and maintain a healthy diet as well as keep ourselves hydrated.
If you have ever notices, those of us who decided to join the Natural Hair Movement started off not having any idea how important affected our ability to maintain and grow our natural strands. Usually after realizing that no product works, we begin searching for answers in other places. It’s almost like the Natural Hair Journey forces us to acknowledge that we need to eat better, and those of us who are serious about remaining natural 6 out of 10 times end up changing the way we eat and see food.
LET’S TALK ABOUT OUR FIRST (2) FOODS THAT ARE KNOWN TO STIMULATE HAIR GROWTH
Salmon is one of my universal foods, it goes great with just about anything in decide to put together. You can eat salmon raw, broiled, baked, fried, steamed. It’s so many ways to prepare salmon that you almost can’t go wrong. But most importantly salmon is packed with Omega-3 fatty acids which play a major role in hair growth. Salmon also provides a great source of protein, Vitamin B-12 and Iron. When we do not have enough of these proteins, fatty acids and vitamins we experience dry scalp, dry hair, lack of shine and lack of elasticity.
Eggs unless you are 100% against eating any type of living creature, eggs some how, some way play a role in your diet, People eat scrambled eggs, sunny-side up eggs, fried eggs, boiled eggs, eggs are included in a lot of your sweet treats and is the go-to food for breakfast. I honestly don’t believe anyone has made it through life without having to come across eggs LOL. People even use raw eggs in their hair routine to bring that wonderful shine back.
Eggs is a great source of protein that also contains biotin and vitamin B-12. I’m sure you are asking yourself what is biotin? No worries I did a little research because I asked myself the same question a few years back. “Biotin is a water-soluble B-vitamin, also called vitamin B7 and formerly known as vitamin H”.
