Food For Your Hair

posted in Hair Loss

A healthy diet doesn’t just help you achieve great, glowing skin, but also supports hair growth. Strong, vibrant hair thrives on a healthy and balanced diet. Your hair’s quality can improve without all of the fancy shampoos, conditioners, exotic oils, and serums- just watch your diet!  Paying more attention to your diet can really improve your overall appearance.

  1. Salmon- Think of it as the fish for your hair. Because it’s so high in oils and rich in omega-3 fatty acid, Vitamin B12 and iron; your hair will shine and even the health of your scalp will improve.
  2. Eggs- The protein packed snack or meal can improve hair, nails and skin with help from the B12 and B7 vitamins also stored inside. Because hair, nails and skin are all composed of protein, consuming protein helps to strengthen brittle hair.
  3. Oysters- Zinc is a vital mineral to keep your hair healthy and strong, in fact, without it you could end up with a dry scalp and worse- lose your hair and even your eyelashes. Thankfully, three ounces of oysters account for 493 percent of your daily value. Zinc also helps combat against premature aging!
  4. Walnuts and Almonds- Nuts are a great source of nutrition, and with walnuts rich in biotin and vitamin E, hair cells are protected from DNA damage. Walnuts also provide copper, a mineral that helps hair color stay rich and glossy. Almonds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which serve as a hair loss regenerator.

Lentils- Full of folic acid, Lentils provide the hair and scalp with much-needed oxygen. Folic acid is necessary for healthy blood cells to move the oxygen supply and is essential for cell renewal. Healthy hair growth needs oxygen and Lentils are the perfect suppliers. Dr. Rokhsar provides his patients with one-on-one consultation in order to determine the best and most effective treatment.
