Dropping down the list of foods that will enhance your hair health and make it a desire for others!
Eggs, a protein-rich food, is a proven way to nourish hair. Our hair contains natural protein. And eggs are high in biotin, which helps restructure the damage, if any, on the hair. The lutein present in eggs positively helps in hydrating the hair. In short, consume eggs regularly to optimize your hair for making hair growth easier and healthier.
Also chicken, liver, shrimps, oysters are all add-ons for boosting hair growth.
Iron deficiency is correlated with hair fall issues. And nothing but spinach can boost your hair health by providing the much-needed iron, thereby regulating blood cells. Scalp moisturization is adequately essential. The presence of Vitamin A and C in spinach regulates the sebum secretion. This keeps the scalp moisturized and paves the way for healthier hair.
Besides spinach, consuming dark leafy green veggies and especially curry leaves pumped with protein and antioxidants stimulates hair growth.
If nourishing your hair follicles and strengthening hair is crucial, fatty fish will be your best pal. Not only fish, but even fish oil supplements rich in omega 3 will help prevent inflammation in the hair scalp. A research study conducted in 2015 has proven that 90% of people who are on track with consuming omega 3 and omega 6 supplements experienced rich hair growth while making it thicker and lustrous hair.
But make sure to consume fish that is less in mercury, as this might lead to toxic reactions like brain and heart damages.
Beta carotene-rich sweet potatoes helps to prevent hair thinning by promoting exponential cell growth. Pumpkin, carrot, and mangoes are all great sources of beta carotene. These will help maintain the moisture in the hair and prevent hair from becoming dry and dull. Consumption of foods directly instead of supplements will maximize benefits for promoting hair growth.
Avocados, a fruit rich in Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and Vitamin B6, are a proven food source that enriches hair growth. A research study conducted in 2010, inferred that those who consumed Vitamin E supplements were rewarded with potentially rich hair health. In short, be it supplements or consuming the fruit directly, avocados are a must-have in your diet.
Alopecia, a baldness condition, is caused when there is an imbalance between the free radicals and the antioxidants fighting against it. So vitamin E in Avocados is an excellent choice to refrain from hair loss and boost hair growth.
Apart from hair, even your skin deserves some nourishment with avocado or its oil. It protects from sun damage and nourishes the skin. And the nutrients present are easily absorbed by the skin’s outermost layer, which will help produce new skin.
Leave on a hot avocado oil mask for 15-30 minutes to treat a dry, flaky dandruff infected scalp.
The scalp needs sufficient oxygen and blood circulation to generate healthy solid hair. The zinc and vitamin E present in sunflower seeds ensures regular blood supply to the follicles. Also, it is a natural moisturizer to the hair and prevents breakage.
Flaxseeds, the powerhouse of essential macro and micronutrients like omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin B, Vitamin E and other vitals, is the best choice for vegans.
