What food we eat has enormous effect on how we look. Major hair issues like hair loss, growth problem, dull hair etc cannot be resolved permanently just by using good shampoo, conditioner and essential hair oils. The cells in every strand of hair require a constant supply of nutrients. The key nutrients our hair need includes:
Omega-3 fatty acids
We can obtain all these nutrients if we choose the right food.
VEGETARIAN OPTION: NUTS
Hair is primarily made up of a protein called keratin. Optimum protein consumption is extremely crucial for healthy hair. If our body doesn’t have enough protein, hair growth literally ‘STOPS’. Chicken can be considered a great source of protein. The simplest way to ensure our diet contains enough protein is to eat chicken at least 3 days a week.
VEGETARIAN OPTION: HAZELNUT
Biotin is a water soluble B vitamin. If you are facing brittle hair, hair breakage, split ends then please ensure enough amount of biotin is present in your diet to get a permanent solution. Egg yolk is a great source of biotin. One egg everyday can supply required amount of biotin in your diet. For veggies one spoon of hazelnut butter everyday achieves the same.
3. KIDNEY BEANS (RAJMA) / ALMONDS
Lack of zinc can lead to hair loss, dry scalp etc. If we do not have enough of this mineral in our diet we are not just prone to hair loss but may face the same problem with our eye lashes. Kidney beans and almonds are brimming with zinc. By adding adequate amount of kidney beans and almonds to our diet we can safeguard the requirement of zinc in our body.
This fruit is chock-full of vitamin C. Vitamin C ensures the production of collagen that strengthens the capillaries which supply the hair shafts.
VEGETARIAN OPTION: WALNUTS
Our body cannot make omega-3 fatty acids; so we have to get them from food or supplements. These fatty acids provide the oils that keep our scalp and hair hydrated, which in turn adds to the shine factor of hair. Oily fish specially salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. Walnuts are the only type of nuts that contain omega-3 fatty acids.
Broccoli is considered as a super food for hair. Consumption of broccoli strengthens the hair at the roots. Broccoli can do wonders for skin and hair as it contains fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Nothing works better than oatmeal when it comes to hair problems. It works best for me. People seeking lustrous, healthy hair should have an affair with oatmeal. It can fix damaged hair and its a miracle treatment for hair-loss. Oatmeal is one of the best breakfast option available for health conscious people. I, also suggest applying hair mask made of oatmeal for those who have wavy/curly hair as it is extremely moisturizing.
