Take a look at what you're putting on your plate. There's a strong connection between your overall nutrition & the state of your strands. Hair growth (and fallout), skin collagen production, hormone balance, & 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, & strong.

Below are the 7 foods for healthy hair.

 

SPINACH:

Not only does spinach give you strength, but also it is a major anti-ageing agent. It is rich in beta-carotene which converts into a powerful anti-ageing vitamin A. This nutrient is crucial for proper moisture retention, preventing wrinkles, & removing dead skin. For premium absorption, pair spinach with a food that is high in vitamin C. E.g. Lemon. Spinach is also rich in vitamin C which is important for building & maintaining collagen, thus providing structure to the skin. 

 

FATTY FISH:

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

 

CINNAMON:

Cinnamon improves circulation which brings oxygen & nutrients to your hair follicles. Sprinkle this evocative spice every day on your toast & 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 & 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 & 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 & vegetables are your best bet: Carrots, pumpkin, cantaloupe, mangoes, & sweet potatoes!

 

WHOLE GRAINS:

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

 

ALMONDS:

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