Losing your hair can be a very stressful process. So much of modern society puts a value on outward appearance, and hair loss can lead to issues with self-esteem and self-image. It’s only natural that those experiencing this problem will be looking for ways to address it. Fortunately, there are many easy things that you can do that will stop or slow hair loss.
One of these simple things is improving nutrition. Essential nutrients such as protein and fats are very important in the growth of healthy hair and the production of keratin. While altering your diet likely won’t reverse genetic hair loss, it will strengthen the hair that you do have and make the loss much less noticeable.
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for full, shiny hair. Your body doesn’t naturally produce this fat, so your hair will not get this luster on its own; you may have to alter your diet. You can find Omega-3 fatty acids in many kinds of fish, most notably salmon. Sardines and mackerel also contain these valuable nutrients.
If your hair is thinning, it’s important to alter your diet to introduce nutrients that make your hair stronger. Spinach is a superfood and the single best dietary way to combat brittle hair. It contains a host of nutrients from iron to vitamin A that strengthen hair and make it less likely to break.
Finally, there are even nutrients that can promote hair growth and possibly even fight hair loss directly. Vitamin B5 also referred to as pantothenic acid, directs blood flow to the scalp and promotes hair growth. This nutrient is used in many hair products on the market today.
Even with dieting to combat hair loss, it is challenging to fight male and female pattern baldness solely through nutrition. You will delay the loss, but it will most likely continue at a slower pace. When you are ready for a permanent solution to hair loss, consider scalp micropigmentation.
