In order for hair growth to take place, the hair needs to have certain nutrients that promote the growth. Such nutrients include vitamin A, Biotin, C, and E etc. I will be showing you types of foods, fruits, and vegetables that are rich in these nutrients and what exactly they do for the hair.
There are toxins in the environment that can prevent hair growth, and vitamin A provides a good protection from these toxins. Vitamin A also helps produce oils which are essential to a healthy scalp. If the body begins to lack enough of the vitamin A our hair begins to itch and this is when dandruff can appear.
Fruits and Vegetables Rich in Vitamin A: Sweet potatoes, carrots, spinach, cantaloupe, kale, broccoli, pumpkins, yellow apples, pineapples, nectarines, yellow tomatoes. Fruits and vegetables that contain beta-carotene that convert to Vitamin A in the body.
This is a member of the Vitamin B complex. It is good for preventing hair loss and making your hair healthy and strong. There are quite a few animal products that are rich in biotin but for this post, I will be focusing on fruits and vegetables.
Fruits and Vegetables Rich in Biotin: Avocado, Raspberries, and Raw cauliflower.
Avocados are very special in that they are rich in beta-carotene, vitamin B, C, and E which are essential for hair growth. It guarantees that the hair cells get the oxygen they need which promotes good scalp circulation
This is one of the best and I would say easiest ways to get healthy hair. Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant that prevents your hair from toxins. Fruits containing citrus are easy ways to get vitamin C examples are oranges, lemons, lime, grapefruit, berries; raspberries, strawberries, loganberries, gooseberries etc. We might think that vitamin c is one of the easy vitamins to get but what we don’t know is that vitamin C often gets lost during food preparation. It is, therefore, important that to incorporate these fruits into our daily meals.
Berries are also really good for your hair because they help to slow down the graying process! isn’t that cool? They also help to promote shine
Cutting open a fresh lemon and rubbing it on your hair helps with dandruff problems and blood circulation which also leads to hair growth
This is also a natural antioxidant. It can help protect your hair from becoming sun damaged (due to the exposure from the sun; Heat).
Fruits and Vegetables Rich in Vitamin E: Avocados! Lol, they really are something! carrots, spinach
