At OPEN Hairdressing, we can offer you all the advice we know about maintaining healthy looking hair. However, it’s not necessarily what we put on our hair as it is about what we put inside of us.
For years, scientists and dietitians have uncovered a whole host of health benefits in natural foods. Sometimes, we can’t simply rely on the products to do all the work. Therefore, we can all do our bit to make sure we eat right. And when we do, the effects can nourish your hair and body inside and out.
Here, we’ve listed some delicious foods that are fantastic for getting you on your way to healthier hair:

Fatty amino acids also help hair to retain moisture and keeping your hair looking better for longer. Plus they’re full of anti-oxidants – dry hair won’t stand a chance!
Whether you eat them as they are or sprinkle them over a salad, pomegranate seeds can seriously boost your hair health. This food is rich in vitamins C and B5 and even has the power to fight frizz. But it doesn’t stop there.
