Loving this article from ABC news about 6 nutrients vital to maintaing healthy hair! Here’s a few of their essentials:
|Iron and zinc|
Iron and zinc help hair follicles to grow, says Wilma Bergfeld, MD, a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic, who suggests eating lean red meat, which is rich in both, twice a week. Pair nonmeat sources, such as soybeans or lentils, with a vitamin C-rich food like an orange to boost iron absorption.

|Omega-3 Fatty Acid|
Eat fatty fish (like salmon) twice a week for hydrated hair, or take up to 1 gram a day of a DHA and EPA supplement.
