Many people want to achieve healthy, long hair. According to MindBodyGreen, here are some things you can add to your diet to help your hair grow.
First, protein! You can get protein from lean meat like poultry and fish if you actually eat meat. If you don’t, you can get protein from chickpeas, lentils, oats, and beans. In other forms, you can use supplements like vitamins or powders. Protein supports scalp health and deters follicle irritation.
Second, you need more Vitamin B like biotin and niacin. These support cellular energy production and encourage healthy hair growth. Biotin in particular is essential but be mindful that some people are allergic to biotin. So you could even be allergic to it without knowing it. You can get biotin from fish, eggs, nuts, and some veggies like sweet potatoes, broccoli, and spinach.
Lastly, Vitamin D is thought to be one of the fat-soluble vitamins needed for creating and supporting functioning hair follicles. Vitamin D deficiencies are actually linked to hair loss. You can get Vitamin D from the sun, vitamins, shiitake mushrooms, button mushrooms, mackerel, sockeye salmon, cod liver oil, sardines, and eggs.
