5 superfoods to combat hair loss

Have you ever woken up from a good night′s s sleep to find strands of hair strewn on your pillow? While it′s s said that everyone loses up to 100 strands of hair daily, losing clumps of hair is undoubtedly a cause for concern. Fortunately, a few conscious changes, particularly to your diet, can go a long way in protecting your tresses, and giving you a healthy head of hair.

Here are five superfoods you should add to your diet:

Nuts: Walnuts and almonds are excellent sources of nutrients, particularly biotin, B-vitamins, omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, plenty of protein and magnesium, all of which strengthen hair cuticles and nourish the scalp. Adding a healthy dose of nuts to your diet will help reduce thinning and promote hair growth.

Quinoa: Contrary to popular belief, quinoa is not a grain but a seed. Considered a complete protein, quinoa contains all nine essential amino acids that contribute to stronger, healthier hair. This superfood can help nourish both hair and scalp from within. The hydrolysed protein content from quinoa can seal split ends, and its vitamin E content helps minimise hair loss.

Eggs and dairy products: These high-protein foods are great for hair growth and thickness. Yoghurt, milk and eggs are loaded with other essential nutrients like vitamin B12, omega 6 fatty acids, iron and zinc. But if that′s s not all, dairy products are rich in biotin, a nutrient that is known to fight hair fall, so make these a regular part of your diet.

Spinach: With a nutrition profile to rival any superfood, spinach is one leafy vegetable that is guaranteed to give you a world of nourishment. From vitamins K, A, C, B2, B6, B1, E, manganese, zinc, iron, and omega 3 fatty acids, you know Popeye was onto something with his daily dose of spinach. The nutrients in spinach help nourish your scalp and hair, ensuring healthy hair growth. The high content of antioxidants protects against hair damage and boosts scalp health, while vitamins B and C promote hair growth.

Strawberries: Perhaps the biggest benefit of adding this fruit to your daily diet is the fact that strawberries help prevent the thinning of hair and alopecia. The ellagic acid found in strawberries protect against delaying and rogentic alopecia and strengthens the roots, preventing hair fall. They are also rich in folic acid, vitamin B6 and B5, nutrients that are great for the hair as they help prevent hair loss.

While hair loss and damage is something to worry about, there′s s no reason why you can′s t eat your way to healthy hair. Besides, while they not only taste good, they also go a long way in helping you maintain a healthy bodyweight. It′s s a win-win!
