The Connection Between Diet and Hair Health

Your hair is a reflection of your overall health. When your body is properly nourished, it can produce strong, vibrant hair. On the other hand, deficiencies in certain nutrients can lead to hair loss, dryness, and brittleness.

What to Eat for Healthy Hair: A Filipino Perspective

Here are some foods that are beneficial for hair health, with a focus on what's commonly available in the Philippines:

  • Protein: Hair is primarily made of protein, making it essential for hair health. Include lean meats, fish, eggs, and plant-based proteins like monggo (mung beans) and tofu in your diet.
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids: These healthy fats can help keep your hair shiny and healthy. Bangus (milkfish), galunggong (round scad), and tilapia are excellent local sources. You can also find omega-3s in flaxseeds and walnuts.
  • Vitamins and Minerals: Vitamins A, C, D, and E, as well as iron and zinc, are all important for hair health. They can be found in a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. Malunggay (moringa), kamote (sweet potato), and kalabasa (squash) are nutrient-rich local vegetables that are good for your hair.

While a balanced diet is crucial, it's also important to maintain your hair's health with the right products and regular maintenance at a trusted salon like HairMNL Studio.
