Fact or fiction: Eating eggs can make your hair grow faster…
The next time you’re deciding between waffles or eggs for breakfast, definitely go for the eggs. While there’s no scientific evidence proving that eggs will give your hair that Rapunzel-like length, they will make your locks stronger and more flexible. This means less of that brittle feeling and more smooth, silky strands.
High-protein foods like eggs and chicken have great benefits for your hair. Because hair is made of protein, these foods work to strengthen your roots, make your color more vibrant and remove buildup from the follicles. This can actually speed up the growth process a tad. The result? Luscious locks that will have people thinking you just walked out of an Herbal Essences commercial.
The saying “you are what you eat” goes for your hair too, so you should always eat a well-balanced diet full of fruits, veggies, and protein-rich foods. The more protein you consume, the healthier your hair will be, so whether they’re boiled, sunny-side up or scrambled, try adding eggs to your diet!
