When it’s hot and humid in the summer, it’s the perfect time to chop off your locks and rock a bob. But now that we’re well into winter, it’s common to feel like your hair is especially dry and slow to grow. You might be tempted to start taking supplements, but I’ve got a secret: the best way to grow hair faster and healthier is to simply incorporate more real foods in your diet!
It makes sense. Your healthiest hair diet is the healthiest diet for you in general. Mostly plants, high-quality protein and whole ingredients. For optimal growth and shine, focus on getting more leafy greens (think kale and spinach), beans (they’re high in zinc, protein and iron), eggs and nuts (aka omega 3 fatty acids). I also incorporate Vital Proteins collagen peptides in my morning coffee—it’s done wonders for my nails and hair!
