Five Foods to Fight Hair Loss

Raleigh Hair Concepts


In certain cases, especially in women, a mineral deficiency is the root cause of hair thinning and loss. Iron leads the list for common mineral deficiencies, and is a key component to a thick, full head of hair. Spinach is not only iron rich, but also has omega-3 acids, potassium, calcium and magnesium, all of which keep hair thick and lush. Lastly, spinach contains sebum, which is a naturally occurring conditioner for hair.


Lentils have an abundance of protein, zinc, biotin and iron, all pivotal to promoting healthy hair. Lentils also have folic acid, which helps to rebuild the red blood cells that are responsible for supplying the scalp with fresh oxygen.


While it is commonly thought that oranges are the best source of vitamin C, one guava actually contains four to five times as much vitamin C as one orange. In several studies, vitamin C has been proven to promote substantial hair growth, especially in women with temporary thinning hair.


Salmon is an excellent promoter of healthy hair because it with packed with protein, vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids. Your body is unable to produce omega- 3 fatty acids on its own, but depends upon them for hair growth. Also, both male-pattern baldness and female hair loss can happen in accordance with insulin resistance. Salmon is one of very few foods that aid the body in processing insulin more efficiently.

Greek Yogurt

Greek Yogurt is not only protein-rich but also contain vitamin B5, also known as pantothenic acid. Vitamin B5 helps blood flow to your scalp and in turn facilitates the growth of thicker, healthier hair.
