There are not many of us that don?t give some thought to food. Naturally in varying degrees. What we tend to forget though is that our hair needs food and the proper ones just like the rest of our body. We have this unique way of thinking that hair is some type of separate entity from the rest of our body.
There has been a lot of talk about how bad the fats we consume are for our body. Quite often, when something bad for us is brought to our attention we tend to go overboard in trying to correct the problem. In this case, we end up virtually shunning the entire fat intake and in the end, our hair is one of the major parts of our body that suffer from this. It is important to know that there are good fats and bad fats. In order to really understand these various types you can get the information you need by referring to nutritional guides. You will know if you start including these into your daily diet whether they work or not, because you hair is most likely to show you.
If you have fat starved yourself your hair it is most likely harder to control as well as looking dull and lifeless. Once you have introduced the right fats back into your diet carefully observe the changes in your hair. From here on in you will have your own proof about what food can do for your hair. You won?t have to take someone else?s word for it.
Fat plays many important roles in our nutrition such has aiding in the absorption of the vitamins and nutrients of the other foods we consume. When we refer to fats, we are not talking about the fat in those french fries you may be thinking about. It is in reference to the unsaturated fats that you are automatically going to eat when you incorporate a healthy diet.
There are multiple ways to get the fats you need. For example, avocadoes are a great source. The greatest choices are the various seeds like sunflower or nuts such has pecan, walnut or almond just to name a few. Then from there you can enjoy the tuna, salmon and olive oil, which makes the perfect meal for your hair.
We have told you much about the good fats but you need to know to avoid fats that are saturated or trans fats such as those found in the fatty meats. The trans fat culprits are the hydrogenated products.
Something that you may not be aware of is that your hair is made up of mostly protein. We all know what the word protein in our eating habits consists of. It makes perfect common sense that if this is what the hair is made of then it is what the hair is going to require. Therefore, along with all those fruits, seeds, nuts and lean meats you have to add the protein food into your diet as well. If you are looking for the answer to speeding up hair growth now you know it?s in the protein.
So be kind to your hair as well as the rest of your body by ensuring you are eating a good healthy well balanced diet.
