Not Eating Enough Protein
Hair is made of protein, make sure you're getting plenty of it in your diet. The best place to find protein is in lean meats, such as:
- soy products
These foods will help promote healthy keratin production and since our hair is made of up 90% keratin, it is important to support the body in making this important protein.
Not Eating Enough Fats
Believe it or not, fat is essential to both a healthy lifestyle and lustrous hair. Certain fats in moderation help maintain healthy hair and skin production. Fats help process Vitamins A, D, E, and K as well as minerals, which are necessary for healthy hair production. Eat the right kinds of fats. Try to avoid unhealthy fats like saturated fats, trans fatty acids, and hydrogenated fats. Doctors are clear that Omega 3 fats, found in cold water fish and certain plants, seeds and nuts, are an essential building block of healthy hair.
Not Getting Enough Nutrients
Many people find it hard to get all of the nutrients their bodies need from diet alone. Supplementing with vitamins is an easy way to fill gaps. Choose a vitamin specially formulated to regrow hair.
