Nutrition for Thicker Hair: 4 Foods That May Help Thicken Your Hair

Foods that are high in protein, omega 3 fatty acids, iron, zinc and biotin are amazing for hair growth and health. Here are a few foods to consider adding to your diet: 

  • Salmon: This oily fish contains ultra-high amounts of omega 3 fatty acids which promote healthy, beautiful hair. We love salmon baked in foil with lemon and pepper and served with baby spinach (another hair-loving powerhouse) for a fuss-free meal.
  • Sweet Potato: Packed with beta-carotene, this is not your ordinary, frumpy potato. A great source of vitamin A, sweet potatoes help to prevent a dry scalp and, dare we say it, dandruff. Upgrade your boring weeknight jacket potato with one of these beauties and top with a crumble of feta and sliced chili. Perfect. 
  • Avocados: OK, OK, we know, avocados are everywhere, but listen up! Not only are these insta-friendly guys absolutely delicious and full of good fats, avocados are chock full of vitamin B and E, which help repair a damaged scalp and help speed up the healthy hair growth process. Avocado on toast for brunch? We thought so.
  • Eggs: These babies are rich in protein and biotin, which makes them perfect, pocket-sized solutions to thin hair.
