TIPS FOR HEALTHY HAIR


Consume a Diet rich in Protein, Iron and Vitamins

Eat eggs, chicken, fish, leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts and pulses, curd, whole grain and cereals.

Hair is mostly made of protein, so a diet rich in protein is your fastest ticket to encourage hair growth and prevent hair loss. Iron allows other nutrients to be more easily absorbed by the hair follicles by allowing your scalp to get a good flow of blood.

Eggs: Eggs are great source of sulphur which helps keep the hair follicles in good health. Sulphur promotes hair growth by improving circulation in the blood to the scalp and decreases inflammation, helping prevent hair loss. Eggs also contain biotin and vitamin B12 which are important beauty nutrients.

Nuts: Packed with iron, sulphur and biotin, dried fruit and nuts (and almonds in particular) are a great source of vitamin E which enhances blood circulation on the scalp, and inositol which maintains healthy hair follicles. Brazil nuts are one of nature's best sources of selenium, an important mineral for the health of your scalp. Walnuts are also a great source of zinc. Zinc deficiency can lead to hair shedding.


Bean sprouts: It contains an important nutrient for hair health known as silica and a must on your shopping list for foods that prevent hair loss.

Dark green vegetables: Spinach (palak) and broccoli are an excellent source of vitamin A and vitamin C, which your body needs to produce sebum. Sebum is an oily substance, secreted by your hair follicles and is the body's natural hair conditioner. Dark green vegetables also provide iron and calcium. Fish contains sulphur and provides essential fatty acids necessary for the maintenance of healthy hair and skin.


Water: Consuming at least eight glasses of water per day will help transport the needed nutrients to your hair and help keep your hair strands hydrated and strong.

Avoid refined foods and Table sugar

In case of Poor Quality Hair, Check your Thyroid Function

A low thyroid function affects your calcium and vitamin intake. Take calcium and evening primrose oil supplements to improve hair health.

Exercise enhances blood circulation and improves the availability of nutrients to the body .It also helps improve digestion making the body utilize most of the ingested nutrients effectively.

Hence exercising 30-40 minutes 4 to 5 days is beneficial.
