What to Eat for Hair Growth? (DIET)

After this, I think we shall talk about the equally important thing which includes our diet. Yes my friends, while taking care of our hair by applying all the things mentioned above, it is important to make a few dietary modifications to stimulate the process of hair growth and prevent hair loss. First and foremost, these are the foods to avoid for healthy hair growth:

  • Junk and processed food
  • Aerated drinks
  • Sugary food like donuts, desserts, pastries, etc.
  • Starch items like white bread, white pasta, and croissants
  • Alcohol

Include vitamin and mineral-rich fruits and vegetables, whole grains, carbohydrates, omega-3 fatty acids, and protein-rich foods in your diet. These are beneficial for hair growth.

For your convenience below are the lists of some foods you can include in your daily diet for better hair.

Foods For Hair Growth

(i) Protein-Rich Foods

Our hair is made of a special protein called keratin. Try to include eggs, chicken, tofu, soybean, kidney beans, and other similar foods in your diet. These are the richest source of proteins for hair. They promote the growth of new hair and make your hair shiny and smooth.

(ii) Vitamin A

Vitamin A is beneficial for hair growth. Mango, papaya, orange, prunes, and carrots are a few foods that have a high content of vitamin A.

(iii) Vitamin B

Vitamin B helps in the production of hemoglobin in our blood which acts as the oxygen carrier. This leads to increase in blood circulation in the scalp. Including potato, banana, chicken, oatmeal, fish, and beans in your diet can be helpful.

(iv) Vitamin C

Vitamin C is helpful in collagen production and in fighting the free radicals in the skin. Do not forget to include lots of fruits like amla, oranges, kiwis, and guavas in your daily diet.

(v) Vitamin E

The scalp capillary function is stimulated by the intake of vitamin E in your diet. It increases blood circulation and promotes hair growth. Cereals, sunflower oil, soybean oil, tofu, etc. contain good amounts of vitamin E. You must try and include as much of these foods in your diet as you can.

(vi) Green Vegetables

Try to include lots of dark green vegetables in your diet. These contain iron that is essential for hair growth.

However, these home remedies for growing thick, strong hair are low risk and may be worth a shot! Try these effective home remedies for longer, stronger, and shinier hair. Usually, a combination of a few remedies works best. For long-lasting effects, make the recommended changes in your diet as well. Make these changes to your diet at the earliest, not just for healthy, long hair but also for a healthy body.
