Feed Your Follicles For Optimum Hair Health

Image

When people hear the words “hair loss,” many link such loss to a genetic factor or skin disease such as alopecia. But, what many people don't realize is that some cases of hair loss may be due to rapid weight loss, hormonal imbalances, menopause, pregnancy, certain medications, chemotherapy, chronic stress, poor scalp circulation and even nutrition.

At New England Associates care about your hair health and understand the affects hair loss can have on your daily life. We recommend speaking to a hair loss expert at NEA to receive an accurate diagnosis of the cause of hair loss, but in the meantime it's important to understand other factors that may influence or stimulate loss. Now, let’s take a look at the list we’ve created for you!


  • a.       Vitamin A: This vitamin promotes the growth of healthy cells and tissues. Also, it is necessary for the body to make sebum, which is an oily substance produced by our hair and it serves as a natural conditioner to keep our scalp and hair hydrated. Add yellow/orange or green colored vegetables or fruits rich in beta-carotene to your diet. These foods produce vitamin A. Take your pick of carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, winter squash, mango, spinach, and broccoli!

  • b.      Vitamin B: B-lieve it or not, this complex vitamin is chock full of the same vitamins that naturally occur in the foods you already consume — giving your body an extra boost of energy. They also aid  in the formation of red blood cells. B vitamins can be found in foods such as pork, poultry, fish, wholegrains, eggs, vegetables, and soy beans.

  • c.       Vitamin C: Vitamin C helps in the production of collagen, which supports hair follicles and strengthens the capillaries that supply the scalp and hair. Vitamin C's antioxidant properties increases iron absorption, allowing iron to be rapidly absorbed and used by the body. Good sources of vitamin C are blueberries, kiwi, oranges, broccoli, sweet potatoes, strawberries, and papaya.

  • d.      Vitamin E: This vitamin has the ability to boost circulation to the scalp and it protects the hair from the damaging effects of the sun. Vitamin E is necessary to nourish the hair and to prevent breakage as it helps the body in producing Keratin, which strengthens the hair. Vitamin C and E protect each other and therefore are more effective when consumed together.  Vitamin E ambassadors include almonds, sunflower seeds, spinach, avocados, and kale.


2.      Sulphur - “Nature’s Beauty Mineral”: Sulphur is known as the “nature’s beauty mineral” because it is able to reduce skin inflammation, helps on hair growth and also on blood circulation, which is crucial to a good health. This mineral is abundant in our skin, hair and nails and it is present in all cells in our body. Sulphur also plays an important role in the absorption of several B vitamins, including B5 and B7, which are thought to help aid in hair health. Some symptoms of a lack of sulphur are hair loss, brittle, dry hair and nails, and dry skin. This mineral can only be obtained through diet sources such as protein rich foods, eggs, milk and meat. Our options for vegetarians are garlic, brussels sprouts, seaweed, onions and kale.

3.      Pump Up YourProtein: If you didn’t already know, more than 90 percent of our hair is made of protein. Yes, Protein! Therefore, it’s crucial to pack your diet with plenty of protein for strong, healthy hair. If your diet lacks the protein your body requires, this may cause hair loss. Great protein foods include meats (fish, turkey, chicken, beef), eggs, and dairy products. For vegetarians opt for legumes and nuts. 




4.      Make Sure Your Iron Intake is Right: If the iron levels on the body fall below what is required by it to function properly, you are likely to have anemia, which is nothing more than low iron levels in the body. Iron carries oxygen to the hair, and lack of iron means lack of oxygen and that affects the hair’s growth cycle. An affected hair growth cycle may be causing hair loss because you’re loosing more hair than it is being replaced. To remedy the situation, eat animal products such as red meats, chicken, fish, lentils, spinach, broccoli and kale.

5.      Don’t Forget About Copper and Zinc: Did you know that copper can prevent hair loss and it also contributes to hair thickness? Although, only a small amount of copper is required by the body, it is crucial that you consume the right amount of it. Copper is also said to prevent the graying of hair and therefore it intensifies the hair color to make you look even better. But beware; the exaggerated consumption of copper can be toxic, so watch out! Another mineral that works together with copper is zinc. Zinc helps on the production of new cells, including hair cells and the lack of it may cause hair loss and a dry scalp. Note that it’s important to have balance between the consumption of the two minerals; too much zinc interferes in the absorption of copper and too much copper can be toxic, like stated above. A good source of both zinc and copper are black sesame seeds.

6.      Silica Intake: Silica, which is also know as silicon dioxide, was proved in 1939 by Professor Adolf Butenandt that it is essential to human’s skeleton development. Also, silica is thought to stimulate hair growth and prevent baldness. Therefore, silica plays an important role in the human body and helps on the hair’s health. Silica can be obtained through a variety of foods, such as strawberries, asparagus, wheat, rice, beans, cucumber, and potatoes.

7.      Essential Oils: Rosemary oil has been long used because it is known to increase the scalp’s circulation. Also, coconut oil is known for being super nourishing, giving shine and softness to the hair. Add a few drops of rosemary oil to your shampoo or massage your scalp regularly using either rosemary oil or coconut oil.

Remember to consume foods rich in vitamins A, B, C and E. Also make sure your intake of sulphur, protein, iron, zinc and copper are right. Having a balanced diet can solve a thousand problems you may have and save you from some that may come. Your body is your temple, make sure you take care of it!
