Dietary Tips For Strong Hair
Spinach. Iron deficiency is a major cause of hair loss. Spinach is a great source of iron as well as vitamins A, C and protein. It also includes sebum that acts as a natural hair conditioner and gives us omega-3 acid, magnesium, potassium and calcium. These help keep your scalp and lustrous hair healthy.
Carrots. Carrots are known to be good for the eyes and contain vitamin A, which also enhances hair growth. Vitamin A deficiency may result in dry and itchy scalp. Carrots are known to increase hair thickness, make hair lustrous, improve blood circulation, strengthen hair, protect hair from external damage such as pollution, and also help prevent hair breakage.
Eggs. Because hair is made up of 68% keratin protein, eggs help to reconstruct damaged hair. Eggs are also rich in biotin, a vitamin that helps grow the hair.
Oats. Oats are rich in fiber, zinc, iron, omega-6 fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids that boost hair growth and make your hair thick and healthy.
Walnuts. Walnuts contain biotin, vitamin B, Vitamin E, protein and magnesium – all of which can naturally nourish the scalp.
