From everyone at the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and the start of a warm holiday season.
When you sit down for Thanksgiving dinner this Thursday, take a look around the table, and see how many of the following healthy hair foods you can find. Be sure to enjoy a little bit of everything to give your hair and scalp the vitamins and minerals needed to look your best. And, of course, don’t forget dessert!
Best Thanksgiving Foods for Healthy Hair
From egg bakes to soufflés and h’orderves, eggs are a big part of some of our favorite Thanksgiving recipes. But did you also know that eggs are loaded with the building blocks of naturally thick and strong hair? Biotin, B vitamins, and protein are just a few of the nutrients found in eggs that promote fuller hair.
Some of the best foods for your hair also happen to be the simplest. Spinach, broccoli, and Swiss chard are among the best greens for stronger hair. This is thanks to their dense nutrient profile, high vitamin content, and strong antioxidant profile.
It’s hard to imagine Thanksgiving dinner without fresh baked sweet potatoes. Indulge in this Thanksgiving staple on Thursday night to get plenty of beta carotene and vitamin A, both of which are known to nourish the scalp.
Beans and Lentils
Lentils, kidney beans, lima beans, and other legumes are a great source of both iron and protein. Together, these essential building blocks help to build your hair’s natural strength and thickness.
Cooking with coconut oil this Thanksgiving? If so, you will enjoy the added benefits of vitamin K, E, and healthy fats known to improve hair texture and strength from the inside, out.
