Hair loss is unpredictable and you may never know the real cause for it. But you can do something nutritionally to help yourself with this condition. And possibly prevent hair loss and regrow it.
Many people that suffer from loss of hair usually try most popular hair loss treatments that they see being advertised on the TV screen and in the magazines. They spend large sums of money to buy these rather expensive stuff. But it often happens that in the long run they don’t bring much effect and consolation. Some people have enough valor and make up their mind to try laser treatment and hair transplants. But most people are unaware that they possibly need not resort to such strong measures, as the core of the problem is in the wrong nutrition. So if you lose your hair and your hair is thinning and at the same time your body is losing luster, your skin is sagging, and you experience overall loss of energy, it’s high time to reconsider your diet. It may seem funny and unbelievable, but healthy hair may be in a handful of nuts.
With the help of diets you can have strong and brilliant hair. Rational and balanced food but not a new shampoo can stop hair loss and regrow your hair. If you hair is weak it often means that there’s a lack of protein, folic acid, vitamins B6 and B12, vitamin C, and water in your organism. These nutrients provide a rush of blood which delivers salutary oxygen to the scalp and hair follicles. The low level of these substances in the body predetermines decreased amount of erythrocytes which transfer oxygen, so cells of the skin and hair follicles start to “choke”. Vitamin C promotes hair growth and its shortage results in hair thinning, splitting and fragility.
So, try to eat spinach and salads (these are good sources of Fe and folic acids), vegetables and fruits, which contain vitamin C, everyday. Drink at least eight glasses of water daily. And don’t forget about a handful of nuts.
