Hair Health

Hair health is associated with several factors, most important of which are your eating habits. Nutrients such as proteins, essential fatty acids and vitamins are the key to healthy hair. The lack of these nutrients can lead to hair loss, split ends or frizz. Usually, the normal rate of hair loss is 50 – 100 hairs per day.

Healthy Foods:

  • Protein is an essential component of hair, so be sure to eat protein-rich foods. In Protein deficiency, the body will not be able to replace daily fallen hair and this may lead to its dryness, weakness and loss. So make sure to eat chicken meat, liver, turkey and fish, such as salmon, sardines, tuna and herring, as well as beans and lentils. Soy protein or whey protein supplementation can also be taken for a concentrated dose of protein.
  • Choose fat from a good source such as cold pressed vegetable oils like olive oil and flaxseed oil, which improve the texture of the hair and prevent dryness and splitting. Add a gloss to you hair with Jojoba oil.
  • Your meals should contain at least one meal a day consisting only of vegetables and fruits. Eat more green foods and fruit, such as the anti-oxidant rich wild berries, which protect against premature aging.
  • Eat dairy products, liver, eggs and nuts rich in vitamin B complex, especially B5, biotin, protein, zinc, selenium and iron to maintain hair strength. Do you know that a teaspoon of wheatgrass contains a high dose of vitamin B and zinc?
  • Walnut is rich in vitamin E, omega-3 fats, biotin and copper, important in hair growth.
  • Eat fruits and vegetables for their vitamin A and C content and antioxidants to prevent dryness and hair damage. For a high dose of antioxidants you’ll need cranberries, green tea, nuts and flaxseeds.
  • Herbal and Dietary Supplements:
