2512

Good, healthy, thick and long hair are all signs of vitality, good metabolism, great blood circulation and high fertility rates in most people. You could, of course, use natural looking wigs or artificial methods to cover all your problems, but a more permanent solution that would get the best result, in the long run, is always the smarter choice.

Here are a few food items that can actually help you achieve great hair growth and also prevent hair loss. A healthy diet is the key to healthy hair, and some of these foods will show you just that:

1. Eggs:

Eggs are believed to enhance hair growth since they contain biotin, which is good for the roots and cleanses the follicles. Hair consists of 70% protein and thus it requires a constant supply of high quality protein. Eggs have very high protein content and can help your hair look cleaner, glossier and stronger.

Having stronger hair means a decrease in hair loss most of the time.

2. Carrots:

Ingesting carrot juice for healthy weight management is a well-known fitness hack. Carrots basically improve blood circulation in the body, which in turn leads to better blood circulation in your hair roots. This induces better and stronger hair growth, making your hair look younger and thicker.

3. Walnuts:

Walnuts are a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are amazing for promoting hair growth. Additionally, walnuts have a high nutrient and vitamin content including zinc, iron and vitamins B6, B9 and B11.

About a handful of walnuts over a week will help you start to control your hair loss.

4. Avocados:

A hair mask of avocados and bananas is the most nourishing and rejuvenating of all hair masks. It conditions and strengthens dull and thin hair. Avocados are particularly rich in vitamins B, and E. Vitamin B is vital for hair growth, while E is required for repairing damaged tissue and scalp.

When applied to the hair in a mask form, avocados help detoxify the scalp and repair the damaged sections, so as to promote faster and stronger hair growth.

5. Salmon:

Salmon, just like walnuts, are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids and are also rich in vitamins E and D. Regular consumption of salmon helps you fight problems such as dry hair, thin hair and dull hair.

You should eat salmon at least thrice a week, to promote good hair growth and prevent hair loss.

There a lot of food items that help you fight hair loss and promote hair growth in a number of ways when applied externally or even ingested internally. These are just a few of them. Healthy hair usually grows up to 3 quarters of an inch every month. Consuming or actually applying these foods to your hair will eventually help you achieve your goal of having fuller, healthier, glossier hair.
