YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT
We also know that eating healthy all the time is challenging, especially when on-the-go. Cue Culver City Salads, a food truck and provider of healthy lunches in Vancouver. As a manufacturing (and environmentally-conscious) business, AG supports local wherever we can. In fact, we’re proud supporters of Culver City’s solar energy truck.
And if the beautiful long-locked Culver City Salad babes are any indication – your hair really is what you eat.

Avocado – good source of Omega-3 fatty acids which produce oils that keep hair and scalp hydrated.
Kale, Carrots, Beetroot – Rich in beta-carotene that converts to Vitamin A, which promotes hair growth and adds thickness.
Yams, Kimchi – Vitamin A creates sebum, a natural conditioner for a healthy scalp. Dandruff and flaky scalp occur when not enough sebum is produced. Vitamin C strengthens the capillaries that supply the hair shafts – too little vitamin C can lead to dry, brittle hair and split ends.
Broccoli, Radish – Source of Vitamin C and iron. Too little iron can result in anaemia and result in hair loss.
Chick Peas – Contains protein that strengthens hair and manganese which helps prevent greying.
Pumpkin Seeds – Packed with Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin E resulting in thick, soft and shiny hair.
Lentils – Good form of protein and iron, it is important to consume non-heme iron (plant-based iron) with vitamin C to help the body (and hair) absorb nutrients.
Bell Peppers – Contains the Vitamin C needed to ensure there is enough iron in red bloods cells to carry oxygen to the hair follicles.
