Eat Your Way to Luscious Locks!


Has dry, frizzy and falling hair become an everyday saga for you? Don’t worry, you are not alone. Hair thinning and breakage is a problem for many. All of us crave for long, strong and silky hair but the modern-day lifestyle with all its stress and pollution, gets to us. It harms our internal health, the impact of which we mostly don’t understand immediately. However, all these internal deficiencies pile up and start surfacing on our external appearance. When an alarming number of hair strands falls out while brushing every day, it is then that we take note of what our body is trying to tell us. Many a times the solution to all our hair problems lies in eating right to enable our body to function properly. A few superfoods for your hair are given below:
Eggs: Eggs are a powerhouse of protein. The structure of our hair is essentially made up of a protein called keratin. So, it is important to eat eggs and provide the hair with its building blocks.  Additionally, eggs are rich in a B vitamin called biotin that helps hair grow. Not having enough of this vitamin can lead to hair loss. Biotin also helps strengthen brittle fingernails.
Spinach and other dark leafy greens: The reason for your hair fall may be due to deficiency of iron. Iron provides strength to hair without which it tends to become weaker and weaker. When your body is running low on iron, oxygen and nutrients are not getting transported to the hair roots and follicles adequately which can inhibit growth and make your strands weak. Naturally, when you try to brush out the weak and brittle hair break off easily and fall out. To counter this, include spinach and other dark leafy greens in your diet every day.
Oysters: These are not just exquisite to eat, but very beneficial for the volume of your hair as well. Oysters are a rich source of zinc; which cells need to help with hair growth. If you have notice that your hair is thinning drastically, include oysters and other food sources rich in zinc to help restore the volume of your tresses. Some other natural sources of zinc include beef, crab and lobster. If you do not have access to any of these foods or cannot eat any of these, look for breakfast cereals fortified with zinc or have a handful of pumpkin seeds every day.
Sweet potatoes: Is your hair feeling dry and dull off late? Maybe your body is short of vitamin A. Consider adding sweet potatoes to your daily diet. They are great to eat and also very helpful for your body. Sweet potatoes contain an antioxidant called beta carotene, which is converted by our body into vitamin A. This vitamin helps our scalp to produce sebum which keeps our hair silky, smooth and shiny.
Citrus fruits: Summer is right around the corner and having citrus fruits are a great way to beat the heat. This way, you would also be doing a favour to you skin and hair as your body requires Vitamin C for iron absorption. Vitamin C is also required for the production of collagen that make capillaries that connect to the hair shafts strong thus, ensuring regular supply of nutrients and quick hair growth. So, this summer, make yourself that daily glass of lemonade without the sugar. Add honey if you want, and your hair problems are sorted!
These were some of the easiest ways you could restore your damaged hair to its former glory. Have fun relishing these foods and very soon you will have perfect hair.
