Many people want strong, healthy hair. Who doesn’t? Although you can’t change your genetics or age, your diet can improve your hair’s quality. Even a lack of some nutrients leads to hair loss! To prevent that from happening, Parker Trichology is here to tell you about which foods promote healthy hair and growth. 

Foods that Promote Healthy Hair


Eggs contain protein and biotin. Both of these things are crucial nutrients for your hair. Keeping eggs in your diet will improve the health of your hair and its growth. 


Spinach is good for you and your body no matter what, but its high iron content makes it especially good for your hair. Add some of it to your diet! It’s a perfect way to get the nutrients you need.


Oatmeal has a specific nutrient called polyunsaturated fatty acids or PUFAs. PUFAs improve the state of your hair and make it thicker and healthier. Oatmeal for breakfast is a great way to add this to your diet and improve your hair health.

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes contain beta-carotene. Beta-carotene transforms into vitamin A which is linked to hair growth. Adding these to your diet every once and a while will give your hair the boost it needs. Carrots operate the same way!


Berries are one of the best additions to your diet you could make. They are full of antioxidants, which are perfect for your hair health. Specifically, antioxidants help keep your hair follicles healthy.

If even after these diet changes, you’re still not happy with your hair, or you feel like it’s not growing fast enough, call us today! Parker Trichology is here to help you with your hair health needs.
