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
See, there is a pretty good reason to eat half boiled eggs for breakfast (or any other meal): it’s loaded withbiotin, a type of vitamin B that promotes hair growth by helping your body to produce amino acids, which are basically the building blocks of protein.
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
