SPICE OF LIFE: Glorious hair comes from diet

My mother was right when she said healthy hair comes from what we eat.

How does your hair look?

Shiny and healthy?

Spit ends ?

Dull and limp?

You can bet there is a product out there that will solve any problem you might have in the hair department.

Shampoo products tell us they are loaded with vitamins or some fruit or vegetable.

Conditioners are the same way.

If all the hype is true, tell me if you can, why most people have dull hair?

No shine or marvelous highlights.

I don’t know how things were in your home back in the day, but in mine healthy looking hair was a sign that I was healthy.

My mother was right when she said healthy hair comes from what we eat.

It is a record of our nutrition, bad or good.

Protein is the key building block for our hair.

If you don’t get enough protein your hair does not look good.

That is why most people who do low carb diets notice their hair and skin improves.

Some foods that help hair are salmon, dark green vegetables, beans, nuts, carrots, poultry, eggs, and whole grains.

It doesn’t hurt to take a multi-vitamin or flax seed oil.

Vitamin E works as well.

I did see on the television the other day there’s a product claiming to help with scalp problems.

Are we missing something here?

Healthy skin, healthy hair and nails are all a result of good nutrition.

We don’t need to rub goop on body parts, hoping to observe some radiant result.

Your skin is a pretty big organ topped off with hair.

Scrape off the skin and hair enhancers.

Eat well, stay out of the sun, and stop smoking.

Most smokers you will notice don’t have healthy looking hair.

Those of you who have dogs and cats will also look at the healthy coat your animal wears.

Good nutrition is important as well.

I assume very few pets smoke.

Don’t forget, “You are what you eat.”

Hair today and gone tomorrow.
