Head to Toe Nutrition Series with Regan Janell: How to Strengthen Your Hair with Food Vitamins

Head to Toe Nutrition Series

Black Girl Health is bringing something that’s health driven and catered to all of our Nubian Fit Chicks! “Head to Toe” will focus on the essential nutrients and vitamins needed for optimal health for our bodies. In this week’s series, we are giving you tips on how to grow and strengthen your hair without having to consume hair vitamins. The key is to grow your hair naturally by consuming foods with natural vitamins.


Are you looking to grow and transform your hair?

Whether you wear it short, long, weave or without, the hair that grows from our head is one of the first things we consider when we talk about our health.

We endure so much throughout the day like stress and hormonal irregularities are not foreign factors for hair loss and breakage. One thing we can do for sure is STOP STRESSING about the small things and take a closer look at our nutrition. We need the essential vitamins to avoid hair breakage and to promote hair growth. Vitamins A, B, C, D, and E, are ESSENTIAL for healthy hair.

Here’s the list of some foods you should consume to promote hair growth:

  1. Zinc protects us from breakage while the first set of our vitamin alphabet all promotes growth and a number of other health benefits.
  2. Some foods that frequent these vitamins are carrots, apricots, squash, spinach, pumpkin, and almonds just to name a few.
  3. We always hear about Biotin, which is important but we don’t always have to go to the nearest pharmacy for these vitamins and pills when we can simply pay attention to the foods we eat and still reap the benefits.

Key Takeaway

Get back to the basics, clean up your eating and watch those coils come through!
