Does Changing Diets Reduce Hair Loss?

Hair loss is a condition that affects both men and women, and can have a huge impact on the mental health of sufferers. That is why many of them look for different ways to reduce the impact of hair loss and even reverse the damage already caused.

This may include changing their diet, hoping to prevent further thinning and covering up bald patches by eating more fruit and vegetables. However, lots of patients are unsure whether this would really make a difference.

According to dietician Lola Biggs, there is some truth in the suggestion that eating foods with vitamins, proteins and minerals can result in fuller locks.

She told The Express that eggs are particularly beneficial, as they contain water-soluble B vitamin biotin, which is known for producing keratin.

“They are also crammed full of zinc, selenium and protein which are good for preventing hair loss,” she stated, adding that zinc deficiency can cause dry and flaky scalps.

When it comes to fruit, Ms Biggs recommended more blueberries, kiwis, and oranges, as they contain lots of vitamin C, which helps the body absorb iron and produce collagen. This makes the capillaries that supplies the hair stronger.

Additionally, she noted that strawberries, papaya, and blackcurrants are bursting with antioxidants to prevent free radical damage, while oil fish has essential fatty acids. These contain B vitamins and selenium, which strengthen hair and make it look glossy and healthy.

While it is worth trying these foods to boost general health and promote shiny, stronger hair for the remaining tresses, those with severe hair loss might not find this diet helps with regrowth.
