Fruits are Good for your Hair

There are lots of hair care products on the market that contain natural ingredients to help maintain and grow healthy hair. Did you know that healthy hair starts from the inside out? In order to truly have and maintain a healthy head of hair, you must be sure that you are receiving the proper nutrients and drinking enough water.

Fruits and veggies are loaded with vitamins and other nutrients that give our hair and skin what they need to be healthy.

Here are a few common fruits and how they can help provide the nutrients you need to grow healthy hair.


Strawberries contain folic acid, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6 and ellagic acid which can help prevent hair from unhealthy shedding and thinning. Strawberries are also loaded with minerals such as copper and magnesium. Copper and magnesium are known to help prevent dandruff. These minerals can also be used to treat any fungal growth on the scalp.


Blueberries are packed full of Vitamin C. Vitamin C also plays a major role in circulation to the scalp by supporting the blood vessels that feed hair follicles.


Oranges are rich with Vitamin C, folic acid, Vitamin B. These nutrients can prevent hair loss and are follicle stimulants for hair growth.


Bananas contain potassium and carbohydrates that help soften hair and protect it’s elasticity. This conditioning and protection are critical in preventing split ends and breakage. Bananas also add shine and can aid in combating dandruff.

Be sure to eat fruits daily! Healthy hair starts from the inside out!

I am Tasha and I am the Founder of Naturally Smitten. I have been natural since 2007. I didn’t transition for very long because I was very excited about becoming natural. I BC’d after transitioning for only four months. My 4a/4b (mostly 4b) hair is very thick and coily. It takes a lot to retain moisture. My hair also loves to tangle and knot up! I have had a difficult time finding the “right” product for my hair. Many of the products that I have tried, didn’t leave me with enough moisture. I decided to create a moisturizer that would hydrate and moisturize coarsely textured hair. I want to educate women on how to care for their natural hair and how to maintain healthy length. Follow us at Naturally Smitten as we embark on our journey of loving our natural hair and embracing every coil. Live, learn + love your natural hair!
