Plant based diet and your hair

Hair loss is something that we all worry about at some point in our lives. It is normal to lose 50-100 strands of hair a day, but if you are dealing with extreme amounts of hair loss then there are a few lifestyle factors that you can examine and your diet is one of them. If you’d like to improve your locks and get a gorgeous mane, all you need to do is pick up your fork and eat some pretty delicious food.

If you are on or are considering a plant-based diet, you want to consider the nutrients from meat and dairy products that you no longer receive and find ways to incorporate them into a plant-based one. Include more of these awesome foods into your routine and in just weeks, you’ll likely see a huge improvement in your locks.

1. Avocados

Avocados are not only healthy for your heart and mind, but they also happen to be especially great for your hair. Healthy omega fatty acid in an avocado promotes moisture and increases elasticity, so they not only help prevent hair breakage and decrease hair dryness, thus helping your hair grow longer and stay stronger.

2. Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are rich in calcium, iron, and B vitamins, all of which help promote hair strength and healthy hair growth. Along with protein, they are also a great source of l-lysine, phosphorous and 9 essential amino acids that help with hair thickening.

3. Almonds

Almonds are a great source of proteins, magnesium, fibre, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, potassium, zinc, calcium and they also have a large amount of Vitamin E. While the protein helps increase collagen production in the body which is needed for proper hair growth, vitamin E also helps improve elasticity and moisture of your hair. Have a handful of raw almonds for a snack or include them in your diet in a variety of other ways, crushed as a topping for yoghurt or even incorporated daily as milk in your tea or coffee!

4. Cucumbers

Cucumbers contains hair-strengthening nutrients sodium, silicon, calcium and phosphorus, which collectively stop hair fall. Cucumbers are also naturally cooling to the body so enjoy plenty of them in the spring and summer when your hair is especially prone to damage from long days spent outside.

5. Walnuts

The omega-6 fatty acids, vitamin B7 as well as biotin in walnuts help people with biotin deficiencies. These strengthen hair follicles and reduce hair fall. On top of that, they taste amazing in just about everything from salads to Greek yoghurt! Just about three a day is all you need to get the benefits.

6. Kale

If you need another reason to eat more kale, do it for your hair. Kale is rich in iron and B vitamins that your hair loves, while the other antioxidants help keep dandruff and a dry scalp at bay. Additionally, omega-3 fatty acids from it nourish hair and promote healthy hair textures. Have your kale steamed and tossed with a little cider vinegar and some olive oil. Healthy food doesn’t have to taste bad!
