Our diet can have a dramatic impact on the health of your brow hairs and certain food groups have shown to strengthen and promote rapid hair growth.
Here’s a shortlist of foods (eaten with a healthy diet) which will help get your brows on fleek in no time.
Biotin-rich foods: biotin is a vitamin that plays an important role in the health of your hair, skin and nails. Egg yolk, milk, cheese, avocados, salmon, walnuts, peanuts, almonds and broccoli are all rich in biotin.
Iron-rich foods: iron deficiency can cause loss of eyebrow hair. If you are iron deficient, here are a list of foods that can help restore your nutritional imbalance: beef, poultry, fish, tofu, eggs, kale, broccoli and spinach just to name a few.
Vitamin C: vitamin C is required by our bodies to produce a protein called collagen. Collagen is needed to build hair proteins and strengthen the skin that contains the hair roots. Vitamin C is also needed by our bodies to absorb iron. Blackcurrants, oranges, cherries, strawberries, kiwi fruit, spinach and Brussels sprouts are all rich in vitamin C.
Vitamin E: vitamin E contains antioxidants that help reduce any stress that may be restricting your hair growth. Eating foods such as nuts, leafy greens and avocado high in vitamin E can help your boost overall brow hair health.
Drinking water: Dehydration immediately stops hair growth. To prevent this from occurring ensure you’re drinking plenty of water through the day. On average you should be drinking 1.5-2 litres of water on a daily basis.
