You can spend time and money on numerous procedures and care products, but nothing returns beauty to hair and nails like food. Here you need to act decisively and from the inside - a complete revision of your own diet works wonders. This was told to us Alyona Zlobina - founder, ideological inspirer of the project “Taste & Color”.
Alyona Zlobina - the founder, the ideological inspirer of the project "Taste & Color." The main building material for hair and nails is proteins. They are actively involved in the formation of collagen and keratin. Therefore, it is important that your diet contains legumes and nuts. The hormonal balance helps to maintain fatty acids, and this directly affects the thickness of our hair and skin condition, so it is better not to forget to add various vegetable oils (sunflower, corn) to salads.
If you notice that your hair quickly becomes greasy - most likely it is a lack of vitamin B, and it will help to fill it with cereal, greens and seasonal vegetables.
Dull and brittle hair is a sure sign that zinc is lacking in the body, so it is worthwhile to “lean” on foods rich in tyrosine, an amino acid, which are responsible for hair color and help prevent gray hair. Tyrosine is in avocados, bananas, almonds and pumpkin seeds.
If you want your hair and nails to grow faster - you need a growth vitamin - A, he's retinol. Plant sources of this beneficial vitamin are carrots, red peppers, green onions, lettuce, pumpkins and tomatoes.
It should be said about those products that can very quickly spoil all the beauty: we are talking about food, which impairs the metabolism and as a result negatively affects the condition of hair, skin and nails. It is fried food, canned food, sweets, pastries and fast food.
