I love to have long hair and to have long hair guess what? We also need to have a good nutrition!
It’s incredible how we really are what we eat and how everything we eat dictate how we are going to look and how we are going to feel!
So why bother thinking of so many ways to improve our shape and health, our skin and hair, all is about food. We eat bad foods we get a bad result, we eat good food we get good results!
So according to each of the following situations what’s good for our hair to grow?
1- If your hair grows very slowly: you may have deficiency in manganese, fatty acid and omega 6. So you need to eat more olive oil, flaxseeds, soy beans, whole wheat grains, egg yolk, vegetables, walnuts, pineapple and carrots to fix this problem.
2- If you have dry and brittle hair: you may have deficiency in linoleic acid, iodine, vitamin A, vitamin C, protein, copper, zinc. Eat more olive oil, flaxseeds, soy beans, cheese, whole milk, egg yolk, onion, beer yeast, wheat germ, peanut, lentil, whole wheat, chicken, sea food, lean meat, fish, liver, citrus fruits and raw vegetables.
3- If your hair is falling from the root ( you see a small white round end). You may be deficient in calcium, panthotenic acid, biotin, zinc, protein, selenium. They are found in egg yolk, whole wheat grains, wheat germ, milk and derivatives, spinach, broccoli, lentil, tomato, corn, lean meat, chicken, liver, oyster and fish
4- Thin hair, not shining. It may be deficiency of zinc, copper and protein so eat more lean meat, chicken, liver, fish, egg, beer yeast, wheat germ, peanut, lentil.
Keep including these foods in your diet and soon enjoy your long and lovely hair! ;)
