Worst Foods for Your Hair

Worst Foods for Your Hair

You may think the secret to great hair is using the right hair care products, but did you know that your diet plays a big role in the health of your hair? Without the right nutrients, hair can become brittle, dry, and in some cases even begin to thin.

So what foods should you avoid to keep your hair looking and feeling great?

Fish with high mercury content

High levels of mercury can lead to hair loss. Larger fish like swordfish, tuna, and mackerel tend to have a lot of mercury, so they are best avoided. In general, eating seafood in moderation will be best for your hair.

Sugar

Just like excess sugar can be bad for your skin and your body, it can also be bad for your hair. Your hair relies on protein, and sugar slows protein absorption. Fake sugars like aspartame are also linked to hair loss.

Processed starch

Your body converts processed starches such as white bread and pasta into sugar, which can cause your hair to thin. A low glycemic-index diet can help keep your sugar consumption under control.

Fast food

Greasy foods make skin greasy, and this includes your scalp. T excess grease will clog your pores and cause hair loss.
