Eat Right to get luscious hair!

Nutritional experts largely emphasize the importance of balanced diet. Each vitamin and each nutrient have a role to play in our body. A balance of an array of nutrients makes our hair strong and healthy. A lot of women suffer from hair loss largely due to an imbalanced diet. Serial dieting, starving and having foods rich only in protein or fats or only carbohydrates causes our hair to fall out.

Here are a few questions that you need to ask yourself regarding your dietary choices in order to find the root cause of your hair loss:

1. Are you eating enough essential protein?

Protein plays an important role in our daily functioning. People who go on diet, which completely eliminate protein, may suffer hair loss. Your body can go into a condition known as protein malnutrition where your body tries to save protein by distrupting hair’s growth cycle and making your hair go into complete resting phase. This condition causes the hair to shed 3-4 months later.

2. Are you suffering from iron deficiency?

Next question to ask yourself is whether you are consuming enough iron or not? If you are suffering from regular fatigue, tiredness along with hair loss, then you must get it checked by your doctor. There is a high chance that your iron levels must be low which might be the root cause of all the hair problems that you are suffering through. You can have many supplements that will help the iron levels of your body rise to the required amount solving the issue completely.

3. Do you have an excess of Vitamin A in your body?

While deficiency is definitely an issue, but an excess of some nutrients can be quite harmful too. While the recommended unit is 5,000 IU daily unites- anything more than this can cause loss of appetite, skin problems and most importantly the matter at hand, hair loss. It is very important to keep a check on the levels. You can track this by getting blood tests and consulting a dietician.

4. Are you not a friend of Vitamin B?

Doctors suggest that having a B complex supplement daily does wonders for your hair. One B complex vitamin or consuming Vitamin B5 in different forms will help you have a healthy hair growth and reverse the effects of hair loss completely. To avoid a Vitamin B deficiency, you can have foods rich in it such as beef, chicken, avocado, legumes and eggs apart from having a B Complex tablet or taking B 12 injections.

5. Are you a serial dieter?

This point pretty much talks for itself. If you suffer from anorexia or bulimia, then you need psychological help. Both of these disorders can not only cause an imbalance in your body but also create stress in your life and result in various undesired health disorders.

If the answer to all of the above questions is negative, then you should HairMD to get to the depth of the issue and find the most feasible solution in order to keep your precious hair strong and healthy.
