2. Asparagus

If you’ve always been against this veg, it’s time to embrace its green sprouts for its methylsulfonylmethane (or MSM) content, which helps in the production of keratin. In fact, 100 per cent of one study’s participants reportedly had reduced hair loss AND increased hair growth only six weeks after consuming MSM.

Other options: Pork shoulder, coffee, cow’s milk

3. Eggs, which includes the yolks

Other options: Peanuts, soybeans, whole wheat bread

4. Dried fruits

If you’re looking for snacks to satisfy your evening hunger pangs, junk food is definitely not an option, but dried fruits are! They’re healthier and also rich in iron; which helps to carry oxygen to your hair follicles. Too little of it and you might be seeing a case of hair loss.

Other options: Broccoli, chicken, edamame

5. Red peppers

There’s not much use eating tons of food rich in iron if you don’t have a healthy intake of Vitamin C to help your body absorb it! It’ll also help to prevent your hair from being dry and weak.

Other options: Strawberries, sweet potatoes, tomatoes
