Hair Makes Your Look
Almost everywhere and every culture in the world give great attention to a person’s hair and hairstyle. Historically, hairstyles have always been associated to a person’s social status. For instance, the chief of an aboriginal tribe will decorate his hair with special ornaments that indicate his position as the chief or French aristocrats compare each others wig quality to determine the others status. Even nowadays, a person with long, shiny, healthy-looking hair or well groomed hair generally makes a better impression. Unfortunately, a person can lose his or her hair, or have trouble growing thicker or longer hair due to a variety of reasons.
Healthy Genes and Diet = Healthy Hair
As we know, genetics is one of the most important factors in determining a person’s hair growth. Aging is another crucial factor, since with age, the skin and cells of the scalp becomes less healthy, and weaker production of hair structural components such as proteins and collagen result in hair of poorer quality. Other factors are also equally important, including a person’s health condition, the environment in which the person lives in, and the person’s overall diet.
By eating a healthy diet, not only will your overall health be improved, the health of your hair will also benefit. Nutrition has an important role to play in all bodily functions, including the growth of your hair. Whether you are experiencing hair loss or thinning, or just want your hair to grow faster, the right kind of nutritional requirements in your diet is vital for healthy hair growth. Below are some tips for a healthy diet to improve hair growth and minimize hair loss.
Hair Diet Tip #1: High Quality Proteins
The major component of hair is protein and amino acids; therefore, including quality protein in your diet is important for optimum hair growth. A good choice of quality protein includes fish, lean red meat, poultry, and soybeans, low fat dairy foods and wheat germ.
Hair Diet Tip #2: Vitamin B
Vitamin B is also essential for hair growth. Vitamin B12 helps in regulating the digestive tract and the nervous system by controlling the release of stress hormones. Stress plays a major role in hair loss; therefore getting an adequate amount of vitamin B12 in your diet can assist to reduce stress while encouraging hair growth. Foods such as fish, eggs and beef are good sources of vitamin B12.
Another important vitamin B element for hair growth is vitamin B7, or biotin. Biotin deficiency results in hair loss; hence, it is important to obtain sufficient amounts of biotin to encourage healthy hair growth. This trace element can be taken in the form of biotin supplements, or by eating foods such as cheese, tomatoes, eggs, walnuts, and strawberries.
Foods rich in folic acid, or vitamin B9, should also be a part of your balanced diet. Foods, such as liver, chicken, eggs, legumes, nuts, and almonds contain high concentrations of folic acid. Carbohydrate sources such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, and whole-grain bread also provide folic acid. Fruits and vegetables containing folic acid include oranges, peaches, spinach, cabbage, beet root, asparagus and broccoli.
Hair Diet Tip #3: Silica
Silica is a key nutrient for hair growth. Silica is also an important natural structural component of hair; therefore, it is important to obtain sufficient amounts of this trace mineral in your diet. Silica is present in cherry juice, dried fruits, and oats, and it is often an ingredient in hair-growth shampoo formulas.
The Right Hair Care Products Can Help
