A shiny and healthy hair can be the consequence of good genes inherited from our parents but if this isn’t the case and you dream of having spectacular locks, then the food you choose to consume might be the answer to your problems. If you’re interested in growing your hair faster and with little efforts, then this list we prepared for you is exactly what you need.
1. Milk and eggs
A healthy diet is definitely the key of a shiny and thick hair; for this, you should include in your daily food habits products that are rich in vitamin A, B, C, E and in Iron, Zinc, Copper, Magnesium and Selenium.
Some examples of such products are milk, eggs, yogurt, poultry, salmon, spinach, broccoli, parsley, grapefruit, avocado which help in nourishing the scalp.
Milk and eggs are especially rich in protein and help in forming new hairs. Moreover, hair falling is dramatically stopped because the proteins are working in sealing the protective layer of each hair. You should eat each week eggs that are properly cooked and your hair will be thankful for it.
You have to remember the fact that hair needs lots of proteins to look flawlessly and to grow faster; consequently, poultry is another rich source of proteins and it stimulates the production of keratin which provides elasticity to your hair. A scarce intake of proteins for a period of a couple of months leads to a slow process of hair growing and also to an accelerate hair falling.
Because of its impressive quantities of fat acids and omega-3, salmon thickens the hair and stimulates its growth. The studies conducted so far clearly show that these fat acids shorten the periods of hair dullness, consequently accelerating the hair growth.
Except all these benefits, you must keep in mind that you can also find B12 vitamin and Iron in this product, ingredients that help you in having a longer and shinier hair.
Out of all the nuts specialists recommend us to eat, almonds offer you the most benefits when it comes to longer hair. Raw almonds comprise important reserves of vitamin E which stimulate hair growth and its thickness. A daily intake of 30 grams of almonds (around 15-20 almonds) provides around 70% of the mandatory source of vitamin E required per day. Except this healthy ingredient, almonds also comprise an element called biotin, ”good fats” and vitamins from the B type, all of them having a good influence over the overall health of the hair.
Oysters are extremely rich in Zinc, a mineral that is well known for its benefits in hair growing; Zinc stimulates hair growth and makes it shine. According to certain studies, an oyster a day gives you the necessary intake of Zinc, so you don’t need to turn to other such sources.
Furthermore, if you don’t have access to oysters, you can replace them with wheat bran, beef and pork liver, all of them comprising large quantities of Zinc.
