Want tips for healthy and strong hair! I have a good solution.Go natural. Healthy food for healthy hair, it will really work.
I have had a journey with my hair, when I started my TV career 12 years back, I colored my hair way too often. I put extensions and styles very regularly and that resulted in dry damaged hair and major hair fall. My hair is really important to me and that phase really disturbed me a lot and I started doing a lot of research for me to understand my hair better. I figured good hair needs good food and right nutrients. Just like skin, the condition of your hair is an outward sign of inside health. The cells that make up each strand of hair require a regular supply of key nutrients.
I worked on my diet and started eating the correct balance of the following nutrients including protein, vitamins and minerals to supply hair with all that it needs, and within 3 months started seeing the difference in my hair. So today I going to talk about the foods that we need to eat for good hair.
Before that lets understand hair first.
Hair grows from hair follicles, which are embedded below the skin on your scalp. The portion of the strand of hair that is in the hair follicle is known as the root. The part that you can see, touch and style is called the hair strand. At the base of the root in the hair follicle is the hair bulb. The bulb is where nutrients are converted into new hair cells.Each hair follicle is connected to your body’s blood supply. This allows nutrients to be transported to the hair follicle for new growth. The blood supply is also connected to an oil producing gland and a small muscle that allows the hair to stand on end or lay flat.
As hair is pushed up through the hair follicle and towards the surface of your scalp, it goes through a process known as keratinization. The hair cells fill with fibrous proteins and lose their nucleus. By the time the
hair reaches the surface, it’s nothing more than a complex system of interwoven protein-rich fibers.
Proteins and Hair
A large portion of your hair is nothing more than protein. Proteins are series of long, connected amino acids known as polypeptides. Polypeptides can form side bonds with one another, leading to the thick strands of hair you recognize.
