A nutritionist has revealed 4 main foods that he said can help stop annoying hair loss and promote hair growth.
Although some types of hair loss are permanent, such as male and female pattern baldness, others may only be temporary.
Between diseases and stress, there are many factors that can lead to hair loss.
According to the British "Express” website, the good news is that some foods can interfere and promote hair health.
The newspaper stated that it is known that a healthy diet is key when it comes to fighting or preventing various diseases.
Nutritionist Abbas Kinani says four foods may be particularly effective when it comes to hair loss, noting that choosing these good foods can help increase fat production and even stop hair loss.
He reported that the most promising foods are sweet potatoes, spinach, fatty fish and eggs.
Kanani stated that these foods naturally contain vitamin D, which helps hair growth and reduces hair loss by supporting the glands in the scalp to produce an oily substance known as sebum.
Also, He added that sebum helps keep the scalp hydrated, which in turn promotes hair growth and stops hair loss.
The expert recommended choosing at least one serving of fatty fish per week (salmon, sardines, herring and mackerel), which is equivalent to about 140 grams.
"If these four foods don't sound appealing to you, there are other options that can boost the health of your hair," he added, recommending another food group is nuts and meat because they are rich in a B vitamin called biotin.
"Biotin works by helping to produce keratin, a protein that helps strengthen hair and prevent damage to its follicles," he said. "Biotin has been shown to promote hair growth and reduce the rate of hair loss."
Brazil nuts may be particularly effective because they also contain selenium, which encourages the hair growth cycle to function properly and is used in many hair loss supplements.
Other foods that can also be beneficial are peppers, guavas, broccoli and citrus fruits.
The expert, Kanani, indicated that it is rich in vitamin C, an antioxidant that reduces the stress on hair follicles due to free radicals, knowing that vitamin C also produces collagen, an amino acid that acts as a building block for thick and healthy hair.
He pointed out that a severe deficiency in vitamin C can cause anemia, and one of its side effects is hair loss.
