Best Foods to Eat For Healthy Hair Growth
by Darren W Chow
lack of protein, the strands tend to grow slower. Therefore, a rich protein diet is
necessary to help stimulate growth. Salmon is a rich source of protein and it has lots
of omega-3 fatty acids. It is also very rich with vitamin B-12 and iron, and both
substances help the individual to develop a healthy scalp. A healthy scalp sets the
stage for quick growing hair.

2) Green leafy vegetables.

Green leafy vegetables (especially dark green vegetables) contain lots of vitamin A
and C. These vitamins help to improve the immune system of the body. Having a
healthy body is essential for hair to grow quickly. The vegetables also help to secret
oily substances, which forms a thin film of protection for the hair. Never over wash
the hair as this may remove the protective oils. Hair that is too dry tend to become
brittle and breaks easily.

3) Don't underestimate the tiny beans.

Everybody knows that beans provide a rich source of protein. So don't
underestimate these tiny little beans. They can be boiled, baked, or cooked in soup.
They also contain lots of calcium, iron and more importantly, biotin. Biotin helps to
prevent hair from becoming too brittle.

4) Nuts for healthy hair.

If you are going nuts over healthy hair, be sure to consume plenty of nuts. Nuts
contain an important nutrient, known as selenium. Selenium is responsible for
developing a healthy scalp. There are many different types of nuts that you may
consider consuming. They include walnuts, cashew nuts, pecans and almond - all of
which are easily available in major supermarkets.

5) Eat poultry for more protein.

It's all about getting more protein so that the hair gets all the protein it needs.
Besides beans, poultry offers another rich source of proteins. But be careful about
the cooking method. Meat should be taken to improve your health. Therefore, be
careful about cooking methods. Avoid taking oily meat that is deep friend (such as
friend chicken wings) or barbecued. Try to take poultry meat that is baked or
steamed. Such cooking methods produce dishes with lower calories. That means
your body can absorb a higher amount of protein without all the extra cholesterol.

6) Eggs can help.

If you are in a hurry, you may wish to prepare simple dishes created from easy to
cook ingredients such as eggs. Eggs not only contain loads of protein, they also
contain biotin and vitamin B-12. It doesn't matter how the eggs are cooked. For
sure, they will help with the hair growth.
