During the week, I was checking for things that can help me fulfil my dreams of reaching waist length in two years and I got to know a lot of things we have lying in our fridges and a few things we can easily lay our hands on can help make our hair journey easy. So, I decided to make a list and share.
⁃ Egg yolk : Egg yolk is a great source of omega-3 (which leaves the hair shiny and healthy) and Biotin which prevents hair loss.
⁃ Beans : Beans are full of protein and folic acid. Folic acid helps the body revive its red blood cells which supplies oxygen to the hair.
⁃ Sweet potatoes : it's rich in carotene which prevents dandruff, other hair problems and stops hair loss.
⁃ Almonds and walnuts : Due to their richness in Biotin, these nuts help boost hair growth, fights scalp diseases, strengthens the scalp and gives shine. They are also rich in vitamin B and E which prevents hair loss and breakage.
⁃ Oranges : it's rich in vitamin c which helps your body absorb iron.
⁃ Oatmeal : Rich in fibre, iron, zinc and fatty acid which boost hair growth, making it thick and healthy.
⁃ Spinach : Contains sebum which is a natural conditioner.its rich in omega-3, potassium, magnesium and iron which keeps the hair lustrous and shiny.
⁃ Guava : Great source of vitamin C which prevents split ends and breakage.
⁃ Carrot : rich in beta carotene which stops hair loss and encourages growth.
Next time you pass beside a fruit stand, you better get atleast one of these fruits! As for me, I'm going to me making a smoothie with some of the fruits listed.
NB : guavas are better source of vitamin C compared to oranges.
High in take of beta carotene can also cause hair loss.
