10 Foods That Prevent Female Hair Thinning


Hair loss is inevitable for most people; it’s very rare for eighty-year olds to still have a full, lustrous head of hair. But there are ways to keep your hair for longer, and prevent hair loss from stress-certain superfoods help tremendously. Also, it’s a persistent myth that hair needs to be washed daily, or even every other day; our skin and scalp contain natural oils that keep hair healthy—washing every day removes these oils, making hair and skin itchier and more susceptible to irriation.

1. Walnuts


Walnuts are a rich food source; they contain a lot of antioxidants, many of which promote hair health. Biotin, vitamins B1, B6 and B9, vitamin E, magnesium and protein are present in walnuts, and all of these vitamins and minerals strengthen hair cuticles and promote scalp health. The plant fiber in walnuts protects cells from the DNA damage often caused by sun exposure.

2. Spinach


Iron deficiency is a major cause of hair loss; spinach is rich in iron, and also in sebum, a natural hair conditioner. This leafy green has plant protein, vitamins A and C, magnesium, calcium, potassium, and omega-3 fatty acid—all of these elements help the scalp stay healthy and the hair lustrous.

3. Orange vegetables


Carrots are better known for their high beta-carotene content; but they also contain a good dose of vitamin A, which improves hair growth. Sweet potatoes are rich in the same antioxidants (beta carotene and vitamin A); vitamin A deficiency can cause dry scalp.

4. Eggs, dairy foods


Eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, and other dairy products are high in proteins, iron, zinc, vitamin B12, and Omega 6 fatty acids. Dairy products also contain biotin (vitamin B7), which prevents hair loss.

5. Oats


Oats are a friend to skin and hair; they’re full of zinc, iron, polyunsaturated fatty acids, fiber, and omega-6 fatty acids. These vitamins and minerals stimulate hair growth, and keep hair healthy and thick; when made into a poultice, oatmeal draws toxins out of the skin, calming irritation.
