Hydration is key. We’ve heard it time and time again, drink more water and your body will thank you later. Healthy nails are hydrated nails. So don’t hold back on that extra intake at work. The best diet for your hair and nails is rich in variety- leafy greens, oily fish, nuts, seeds, avocado, eggs, sweet potato. Although we all enjoy an occasional burger or slice of pizza, try to maintain balance with less refined carbs and sugars.

Trust the hair’s natural oils to do wonders for you, there’s a reason our body produces it.
