Want strong and healthy hair? Thinning hair? You must add these “hair foods” in your daily diet. Let’s eat your way to fuller, stronger and shinier hair.
#1 Chia Seeds
These tiny, shelf-stable seeds are an excellent plant-based source of protein, with 16% of their weight being protein. Protein is the building block of hair, and insufficient protein in the diet may cause slow hair growth and hair loss. Why not add some crunch to yoghurt, smoothies and soups by sprinkling on chia seeds?
Dubbed as “hair food”, eggs are one of the richest natural sources of protein. They are also packed with biotin, zinc, selenium, and other hair-healthy nutrients. In fact, a lack of these nutrients has actually been linked to hair loss. The best thing is they are also cheap, go with almost any food and taste great!
Pumpkin is one of the best foods to eat to maintain optimal hair health. It has tons of minerals including potassium and zine, both of which play an important role in promoting healthy hair. Plus, it also contains folate, an important B vitamin that stimulates hair growth by improving blood circulation. Go ahead and make yourself a creamy and healthy pumpkin soup as a starter or a light supper!
Avocado is a great source of Vitamin E, a miracle worker that helps improve the blood circulation and helps the follicles work more efficiently to promote hair growth. Add it to your morning green smoothie or your dinner salad.
