You don’t have to feel too guilty next time you are slurping down mimosas with the girls. To give your boozy meal a healthy kick, opt for signature brunch dishes that improve hair health. Healthy brunch food and favorite menu items like avocado toast and lox bagels are surprisingly good for your mane. Read on to figure out what’s on the menu this weekend!

Chia Pudding

We all love an Instagramable dish and chia pudding is high up there right next to avocado toast. This beautiful dish is made when good-for-you chia seeds are drenched for a few hours in alternative milks like coconut, almond or soy. Chia puddings are known for their fiber boost but the protein in the main ingredient will also provide your hair with strength. Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids that may help control hair loss. The omegas also give your hair a shiny and healthy coat.

Oysters

Getting fancy with the girls is nothing new, but doing it for the sake of your hair? That is something you can get behind! Don’t feel guilty about splurging on oysters next time you sit down for brunch. These sea animals are an excellent source of zinc that helps with hair health and hair growth. Zinc keeps oil glands around the hair shaft in working order, giving you lovely locks.

Avocado Toast

Yes, we know. Avocado toast is the most cliche brunch item on the menu, but before you turn your nose up to this staple re-consider it for the benefits it can give your mane. Monounsaturated fats in the dish can actually help reduce the appearance of damage inflicted by styling and coloring your hair. The oils will nourish your strands and give you enviable shine. If you opted to skip the avo toast at brunch, don’t despair. Avocado can also be topically applied to hair as a mask to reap the same amazing benefits.

Fried Eggs

Biotin is a B vitamin and one of the main ingredients in a diet that will aid with hair growth and scalp health. In additoin to being a biotin powerhouse, eggs are also high in protein. Yolks are believed to help hair prevent damage as they are very rich in vitamins A, E and folate. It’s no coincidence that these vitamins have been linked to hair growth and health.
