The concept of food for healthy hair may be a relatively new one to most of you. You’re no doubt already aware that the right shampoos and conditioners are key components of how to get healthy hair, but more and more, researchers are discovering that the foods you include in your dietary regimen may play just as big a role in the health of your hair as these other factors, if not an even bigger one! This is because while your hair is growing, the main factor that affects the health of that growth is the nutritional composition of your diet. Thus, there are certain foods which you can (and should) consume more regularly if you want to make absolutely certain that your hair is as healthy as possible.
Salmon is one food in particular that’s absolutely wonderful in terms of promoting the growth of healthy hair. That’s because salmon contains such a large portion of omega-3 fatty acids. These are absolutely essential for the support of optimum scalp health. If your diet doesn’t contain a significant enough portion of them, then your hair will end up looking dull, and your scalp will be really dry. What if you’re a vegetarian though, or just don’t like the taste of salmon? Neither of those is a problem. Simply ground up a tablespoon or two of flaxseed every day and you’ll be getting a healthy dose of plant based omega-3s.
Dark Green Vegetables
There is an oily substance called seburn that your hair follicles secrete naturally. It’s your body’s natural conditioner. Dark green vegetables like broccoli, spinach, and Swiss chard provide your body with the vitamins A and C, which it needs in order to produce this substance. Not only are that, dark green vegetable also a great sources of iron and calcium, which also promote the growth of healthy hair. Although Popeye the sailor man wasn’t eating spinach because he wanted to promote the growth of healthy hair, he certainly could have been! You can be, too.
You’ve probably already heard that old, humorous saying about beans being good for your heart, but did you know that they’re also good for your hair? This is particularly true of kidney beans and lentils. Protein, iron, and zinc are all present in these foods, as well as biotin. A deficiency of that last substance can even, in rare cases, result in brittle hair. That’s exactly the kind of problem you’ll avoid by incorporating these foods for healthy hair into your diet.

First burger back
Image by dollen It's been a while since I've had a hamburger. My family has been changing a lot in terms of diet lately and for a while I tried not eating meat. Not because of any desire to be vegetarian but because I was conflicted with the quality of the meets I was getting. After some good research I found that I was right to be concerned and that "you get what you pay for" isn't always true. I paid a lot of money for some jacked-up meats. But this is not about n3 to n6 rations or my concern about how animals are raised and killed for my consumption. This is about the strange feeling I had right before eating what I was pretty sure would be the 2nd best burger I've ever had. Just keeping the beef of my dinner plate for a while was enough to make eating a burger seem bad. Like I was somehow compromising my diet and undermining all of the work I'd done to drop weight and feel healthy. It's that exact mindset that gets me and others in trouble. Once you are conditioned to believe something you have a hard time accepting that you were wrong and what people have been preaching to you for your entire life has been, well wrong. Sorry mom, but you can't go to the head of the class on this one. My diet growing up was cheeseburgers and Diet Pepsi. I'd drink a couple of Double Big Gulps a day along with some coffee and oh yeah, I smoked. Maybe that wasn't all Mom's fault but the point of my ramble is this. Stop teaching American History in schools and start teaching kids about nutrition. Don't preach it, teach it. Let kids know how the body really works, what science there is to back it up and what their everyday decision do to their bodies now and in the future. Sure, they won't listen to you. They'll pass the tests and recite anything you want them to memorize. But some of it will stick and meander in the the back of their brains. The next time the feel like shit after drinking for a week straight they'll remember the part about how alcohol trashes you body. It may take years and years before they even cash in the lessons they've learned and apply them to life, but let me tell you how far American History has taken me. Nowhere. It wasn't even factual information. We pick and choose the history we want to teach and leave out the stuff that young ears shouldn't hear. Let me assure you that it's stupid for kids, adults and every generation that ever wasted time not learning about their only body before being brainwashed by scholastic semi-truths. Relax you civil war reenacting, over reacting historians out there. I'm fine with teaching American History but not until you've covered the most important things first. Feed, the body, feed the mind and then feed the curiosity. Okay, so this starts with a picture of a hamburger and I am happy to report that I didn't wait until the cheese was cool to get over my awkward come-back to burgers. Like inaccurate stories of Columbus there are plenty of inaccurate stories about beef. Red meat will kill you if you keep eating the confinement farm cows with hormones and pesticides joy-riding in their blood. But if you spend the money for good quality, grass-fed, grass finished beef, you'll be doing your body and mind a favor. A proper balance of the good fats from natural sources will give your body and mind the fuel it needs to excel and not just survive, but thrive. Wow, clearly I had something to get of my chest there. Um, the burger was amazing!
Redhill Wildlife Centre - Nov 2011 - WWF Wrestling
Image by gareth1953 New Profile Apparently this picture made 'Explore' on the 29th November which probably explains why it is my most viewed squirrel picture. I believe I have 6 others which can all be viewed in my Redhill Wildlife Centre set. In this particular instance the WWF stands for the World Wildlife Fund. It is good to see healthy competition for food even when there is more than enough for them and and my bird visitors. Believe it or not the one on the bottom came off best as he got first pick of the peanuts and when the loser returned later I noticed he had a chunk missing from one of his ears. Nevermind he chomped away happily until he had had his fill..
Thanks for reading about most healthy food on Whole Fusion
