    Grooming tips: Foods for healthy hair

    Grooming tips: Foods for healthy hair

    Hair loss can be heart wrenching for anyone, but for a girl, her hair is her pride. It has to be perfect, silky and manageable.

    If oil is passe and hair masks are troublesome, have you tried eating your way to gorgeous healthy hair? Step aside from the sporadic salon and spa treatments, what you really need is protein and iron. Here are foods you can snap up in your kitchen; rest assured they'll give you healthy, silky hair.

    Fish
    These lively creatures of the deep hold your natural supplements to healthy hair. Though salmon is the king of Omega 3 fatty acids it is not easily available in Indian markets. However, you can always opt for other fish like sardines or bangda, rahu or Indian carp, surmai or king mackerel fish, sole and pomfret. Oysters, too, have a healthy relationship with your hair, especially due to the rich presence of zinc.

    Gup shup: Vegetarians can include one or two tablespoons flaxseeds in their diet. It contains Omega fatty acids like omega 6.

    Dark green vegetables
    We have all complained that our hair is oily, but actually it is sebum, a natural hair conditioner for your tresses, which when produced in unhealthy spurts, causes the grease overload. This is where dark green vegetables come into focus. They are a source for vitamins A and C that produce this sebum in your body - regulating natural production. The best buys are spinach, broccoli and carrots.

    Gup Shup: The greens and oranges ensure that you have a healthy scalp, which is the foundation for healthy hair.

    Nuts
    Healthy hair also needs healthy doses of zinc in your diet. Let's step into the world of nuts - the best ones being walnuts and almonds. If you're wondering why you are losing hair, then you have zinc deficiency.

    Gup shup: Nuts contain certain compounds that can cut the risk of cancer such as flavonoids, phytochemicals and antioxidants.

    Whole grains
    If you haven't shifted to whole grain products as yet, now you have another reason to do so. If you want naturally healthy hair, whole grain is your answer. Try to include wheat, oats, maize, brown rice in your diet. Lentils and beans will also pump up your iron, protein, zinc and biotin levels.

    Gup Shup: If you have brittle hair, blame it on biotin deficiency.

    Poultry
    When you want protein, where do you head? One of the best directions would be towards chicken. Protein deficiency would result in brittle hair and change in natural hair colour. If you can lay your hands on turkey, go for it; both these flightless birds can spike your body in protein and iron. But even eggs can strengthen your hair; they are rich in biotin and vitamin B12.

    Gup Shup: Lean meat that is chicken stripped of all fat is your ticket to good health.

    Low fat dairy
    Finally, if you want your hair to grow quickly, then calcium is the ingredient for hair growth. But note down, dairy has to be low in fat as it contains higher levels of protein.

    Gup Shup: Low fat dairy has other health benefits too like lowering bad cholesterol, reducing hypertension, preventing obesity and bone loss. (Via)

    I personally believe that healthy hair is a very important for guys as same as girls. Everyone should care for their hair because it is helps to show our personality and nature. I prefer to eat fish one time in week because it's contain omega which is good for healthy hair.
