Did you know that in addition to your overall health, your diet also has an affect on your hair growth and health? In fact, your diet is very important to your scalp and follicle health. If you are interested in learning which foods may improve your hair generation, take a look below:
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Is your hair dry and brittle? You may want to consider adding some more foods that contain omega-3s, such as salmon and other fatty fish. These will help keep your hair shiny and soft.
Your hair follicles need healthy blood to survive and regenerate. If your blood is low on iron, it could lead to damaged and unhealthy follicles on your scalp. Red meets and green, leafy vegetables are always a good source of iron. If you feel like you are still not getting enough iron in your diet, you could always add a supplement.
Protein is essential for cell regeneration and repair. If you do not receive enough protein, your hair is likely going to be brittle or grow slowly. Lean meats, nuts and legumes are all excellent sources of protein.
Vitamin A, C, D and E
These vitamins promote healthy follicles and maintain the sheen and smoothness of hair. There are plenty of supplements available for each of these specific nutrients, if your diet is lacking.
After examining your diet, if you feel like your hair loss problems or poor hair health stem from a larger underlying issue, it may be time to consult with a hair restoration specialist. These individuals can help you find a solution to your hair loss and offer treatment suggestions such as a FUE procedure or micropigmentation.
