Up your vitamin D intake to help grow gorgeous mermaid locks. According to a study, the vitamin can help stimulate follicle growth and prevent hair loss. Portobellos are the perfect plant-based source. Toss them into a veggie stir-fry or use the caps as buns for your burger.
Salmon delivers double the perks. It’s high in omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to improve hair growth and thickness. The delish fish is also packed with protein, which hair needs in order to produce keratin, the protein that makes tresses strong. Grill or bake a 5-oz. piece with lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil.
Eggs are a triple threat: they contain protein, vitamin D, and biotin. Biotin, a B-complex vitamin, can be found in some shampoos and conditioners. The vitamin may play a role in developing hair-strengthening keratin. Bonus: research finds that biotin can help restore brittle nails. Whip up one of the eggs-cellent scrambles from the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan!
Pump some iron into your bod with chicken and other lean meats. Research finds that women with low iron levels are more likely to experience hair loss. For our vegetarian and vegan girls, stock up on iron with lentils, beans, and spinach.
