Fuelling your beauty from the inside out is the most sustainable way to see lasting results. We all know the saying "you are what you eat" yet we forget how true this statement is. The hair is one of the last places to receive nutrients and the first to suffer when there is an nutrient deficiency or imbalance in the body.

Consistently adding nutrient dense foods into our diets can help give our bodies the energy it requires to produce and sustain strong, shiny, beautiful hair.

Here are our top three favourite nutrient dense foods you can try to level up your hair growth game.
