Food For Your Mane

With constant attacks from a range of external and internal factors, your hair is prone to damage more frequently than you ever thought. Have you been witnessing an incessant hair loss, a bout of dandruff or a dry and flaky scalp of late? If yes, , we don’t offer no prizes for guessing that it’s an impact of high stressful life that you lead combined with harms of a pollution filled environment and of course, a lack of nutrition in your diet .

Though there isn’t much we can do to prevent the external factors from hampering and impacting our body (only prevention is possible) but certainly by ensuring a balanced diet inclusive of all essential nutrients we can keep the damage at bay for longer and genuinely reduce its evil effects on our body. Here is a list of some such food items that can be made a part of your daily dietary regime to benefit your hair and improve their growth and texture.
• Beans
Including legumes from the family of kidney beans, beans etc. provides the essential protein to the body and also offers a good amount of zinc, iron and biotin that are great for improving hair quality.

• Poultry
Stored with high doses of proteins and iron, chicken and turkey are a great way to improve your hair quality. Regular consumption helps in strengthening the roots with much needed proteins and hence reducing the hair fall
• Carrots
Besides being rich in iron, carrots are also high in Vitamin A, which is a pre-requisite for shining hair; hence its inclusion in the diet can be greatly beneficial for hair.
• Green leafy Vegetables
Promoted for all the right reasons, these vegetables such as spinach, fenugreek, broccoli are rich with Vitamin A and Vitamin C, this helps create more sebum( an naturally produced oil like substance that keeps the hair follicle moisturised all the time).

• Salmon
Loaded with Omega fatty acids , Vitamin B 12 and Iron, these are of great help in maintain a healthy scalp. These nutrients nourish the roots, keeping the hair healthy and texture neat.

    Olive oil is very good for the hair. Just not that, it has so many benefits, for the stomach, the skin and of course hair. I have been applying a mixture of coconut oil and olive oil on my hair for quite sometime and I have never looked back. It has made my hair thick and nourished it. I follow this process up with a hot towel or mask. I apply a mixture of Hair & care oil and vigaro olive oil. I have also heard that Hair & Care has roped in web teen sensation Shraddha Sharma for their latest TVC. Wow, love her songs!
