Does what you eat affect your hair? The answer is a definite YES. As with the rest of your body, a balanced diet will improve and maintain it. To keep your hair strong and maintain texture try:

  • Protein rich foods.
  • Supplements of choline and inositol help the development of the hair.
  • Tyrosine (an amino acid) is vital to improving growth. However people suffering from epilepsy or migraines should not take this supplement as it can bring on or worsen these conditions.
  • Vitamin B's improve the general health of the hair.

As with any supplements a normal healthy diet provides all our nutritional requirement so care should be taken not to overdo it.

To get more information always ask a certified trichologist or check out our article on diet and low iron.
