Take a look at what you're putting on your plate. There's a strong connection between your overall nutrition and the state of your strands. Hair growth (and fallout), skin collagen production, hormone balance and more are all tied to what you choose to eat. Eat the right portion of the following to supply your hair with all that it needs to remain shiny, lustrous and strong.

Below are the 7 foods for Healthy Hair.

 

SPINACH

Not only does spinach give you strength, but also it is a major anti-aging agent. It is rich in beta-carotene which converts into a powerful anti-ageing vitamin A. This nutrient is crucial for proper moisture retention, to prevent wrinkles and remove dead skin. For premium absorption, pair spinach with a food that is high in vitamin C. E.g. Lemon.

 

FATTY FISH

Fishes that are high in omega-3 fatty acids have incredible beauty benefits, including glowing skin and shiny strands. About three percent of the hair shaft is made up of omega-3 fatty acids. They are found in cell membranes of your scalp and in the natural oils that keep your scalp and hair hydrated. While salmon is usually the superstar choice, mackerel, sardines are even better.

 

CINNAMON

Cinnamon improves circulation which brings oxygen and nutrients to your hair follicles. Sprinkle this evocative spice every day on your toast and in your coffee or sprinkle it on top of your oatmeal and you can gradually see the results.

 

GUAVA

Guava is rich in Vitamin C. It prevents hair from becoming brittle and breaking. Vitamin C also promotes significant hair growth. Although we often think of oranges as the best source of vitamin C, one guava packs four to five times as much.

 

SWEET POTATOES

Sweet potatoes are full of beta carotene that protects the hair from getting dry and dull. Also, stimulates the glands in your scalp to make an oily fluid called sebum. So where do you find this elixir of the locks? Orange- coloured fruits and vegetables are your best bet: Carrots, pumpkin, cantaloupe, mangoes and sweet potatoes!

 

WHOLE GRAINS

Consuming whole grains such as wheat, oats and barley are a healthy source of biotin and vitamins and will contribute to a healthy head of hair. Also, the zinc, iron, and B vitamins contained in whole grains are especially critical for growing hair. Include oats in your meals where possible and start the day with a whole-grain cereal.

 

ALMONDS

These crunchy protein-packed nuts are an excellent source of biotin (Vitamin B7), a vitamin which works by producing keratin. Keratin is a protein found in hair and nails. With its increase in the body, it will make hair grow long and thicker. Also, high in nutrients, fibre, protein and vitamin E. In particular, almonds are great for a healthy scalp and hair.
