A nourishing healthy hair recipe to add to your diet plan
When it comes to healthy eating, it’s good to have a few stock recipes up your sleeve. Salmon, sweet potatoes and kale are all regarded as superfoods and the below recipe, by Nutritionist Ciara Foy, combines all three!
Salmon is rich in both protein and vitamin D, as well as omega-3 fatty acids. As hair is largely composed of protein, notably keratin, a diet rich in protein is particularly important for healthy hair growth.
Sweet potatoes and kale are excellent sources of the health-promoting compound beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant, which your body turns into vitamin A. No cell in the body can function without enough vitamin A. In hair, vitamin A, promotes the production of sebum, an oil substance secreted by hair follicles to protect them from drying out.
