5 Common Foods That Are Damaging Your Hair

August 18, 2015 2 min read

When we think of eating well for our overall health, do we consider our hair? Sure you can put nutrient oils and natural shampoos onto your hair, but what you put in your body has an impact on it's appearance, strength and shine too! Are you eating one of these five foods that may be harming your follicles? #1 Fish High In Mercury A lot of fish rates low of the mercury scale, so don't be alarmed if you're a sushi fanatic like me! But do beware of mackerel and swordfish, these two sea farers are mercury magnets that can make your hair fall out or break easily. inpost #2 Juice Cleanses Hang on, aren't juice cleanses suppose to be healthy? Not really. Sugar-ladden juices can fry your follicles and the lack of protein in this type of diet leaves you with thinned out locks. Eating a balanced diet with protein from meats, Greek yogurt and beans is the best way to get this macronutrient into your system and maintain lustrous hair. #3 Sugar As mentioned above, sugar doesn't like hair, and hair definitely doesn't like sugar. Sugar contributes to premature aging and promotes hair loss because it causes your hormones to go haywire! featured #4 Alcohol Alcohol makes you dehydrated, and we all know that spells trouble for your mane. Consuming too much alcohol can leave hair dry and frizzy to the point where no miracle shampoo can treat it! Not to mention that boozy drinks are often full of sugar. #5 Starch Starchy foods like pizza and pasta have a high-glycemic level that is bad for your body in general. Hair health means cutting down on cakes and spaghetti, and eating a clean and more plant-based diet. It may be hard to resist that bubbling, greasy slice of pepperoni and cheese but do it for your hair's sake! What are some tricks you use to get long, radiant hair?

Shipping & Delivery
We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

Free Shipping: We are thrilled to now offer free shipping on almost all products in our store! If you choose this option at checkout, your order will be delivered ground within 5-7 business days.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system
