When it comes to our hair, it’s not just men who worry about thinning hair. It is also a horror for women, maybe even more so! Hair contributes to a youthful appearance and gray and thinning hair are therefore not popular. Styling too much (and perhaps too fanatic), dyeing from a young age, stress, medication, thyroid problems do not do the hair any good. There are ways and means to limit hair loss. And what do eye drops do against hair loss?
Add eggs to your diet. Whether fried, boiled or stirred, eggs are an amazing simple source of biotin and vitamin B. Biotin (B8) is readily available not only through eggs, but also through peanuts, almonds, salmon and avocados.
Do not cut meat off your list, but eat pork tenderloin. This meat contains all the B vitamins you need that help transport oxygen to the skull through red blood cells. If you don’t like pork, eat salmon, beans, chicken, oatmeal and peanut butter.
Folic acid and iron do more than just help hair. Menstruation decreases iron in the blood, so boosting levels through iron-rich foods is recommended.
Lentils also contain a lot of iron. Lentils are a great side dish with any meal. They can even be used as a substitute for pasta (much healthier) or rice. Lentils are indispensable for vegetarians. They are also rich in proteins. When you add vitamin C to the diet (through another vegetable – peppers – or a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice), iron is better absorbed. Black beans are fine too.
5. Spice it up
Whether you take green, red, or yellow peppers, they are all high in vitamin C, iron and collagen. Oxygen is therefore well transported to the hair follicles.
6. Sweet potatoes
Sweet potatoes are high in beta-carotene and vitamin A, so they are good for not only healthy hair, but also the rest of the body. Carrots, cantaloup, asparagus, pumpkin and kale also have these properties. To avoid having the opposite effect, don’t overdo it with foods rich in vitamin A.
You have to love them, but oysters are full of zinc and so they help repair tissue. Zinc keeps the sebaceous glands around the hair follicles working properly, resulting in healthy and shiny hair full of bounce. Crab, liver, nuts, seeds, peanut butter, fat-free yogurt and cheese, mussels, and lean beef all bring zinc to the body. No hair dandruff will develop anymore! Be aware that too much zinc (for example via a supplement) can limit copper absorption.
