Rapunzel, Rapunzel.. Tell us what you Eat!

Have you ever looked at someone with thick hair and wonder what the hell was in their water? Well since genetics blesses different people in different ways, not everyone can sport the mane they would like. There are certain foods that will promote good health hair, follow the list for our roundup of suggestions..

There are 2 things that determine hair thickness: the thickness of the hair follicles and the number of hair follicles on the scalp, and the following foods will help improve both these factors:

1. Legumes
They contain Biotin, a B- complex vitamin, which is extremely important for hair growth. While human biotin deficiencies are rare, it is necessary to consume enough to maintain healthy hair.

2. Nuts
They contain high levels of protein, along with selenium and Omega- 3 fatty acids that improve scalp health and prevent dandruff. Good sources include walnuts, butternut, peanuts and macadamia nuts.

3. Carrots
Thick hair requires a healthy scalp for proper growth, and carrots provide the body with vitamin A, which prevents hair follicles from thinning. Eat them raw with a hummus or yogurt dip for best effects.

4. Dairy
Calcium contributes to hair growth and maintaining thicker, fuller hair. It also contains protein and healthy fats, which help hair grow thicker and softer. You can have this is in the form of milk, cheese, eggs, paneer or yogurt.

Don’t forget, these foods are great but cannot perform miracles. If you suspect a hormonal change leading to your poor health it would be best to consult with a licensed professional in your area for further investigation.
