How to make hair grow longer

How to make one's hair grow and how can one grow the hair longer? These questions are very popular, especially among women, because long hair has always been a symbol of femininity. If you want to find out how to grow your hair faster, read on to discover the foods that promote fast hair growth.

The importance of nutrition

Nutrition certainly plays a very important role in hair growth and the prevention of hair loss. Of course, sometimes hair loss has a genetic base and can’t be reversed just by eating many fruits and vegetables, but still a balanced diet can be helpful. Hair shampoo What about using topical treatments like a hair growth shampoo? A hair shampoo can never be as effective as a good nutrition. The reason is simple: most of your hair are dead and nothing you apply to them will make them any healthier. Any permanent change must come from within.

The foods that can help your hair grow longer

Meat and seafood The animal protein contained inside meat and seafood is of high biological value and is essential for fast growing hair. Eating sufficient quantities of meat and seafood can also provide your body with zinc and copper that help the hair regrowth. Beans and vegetables Green leafy vegetables like spinach and lettuce, as well as beans are the richest sources of folic acid, which can help the hair to regrow. Nuts and olive oil Olive oil, nuts and seeds are rich in vitamin E that has been described as the "vitamin of youth" and has a strong antioxidant action. Yellow and red peppers Peppers (and mainly yellow and red peppers) contain large amounts of vitamin C, which promote the synthesis of collagen. Collagen is the basis of the tissue of the follicle from which the hair is produced. Other good sources of vitamin C are broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, potatoes and all citrus fruits. Dairy products Dairy products are rich in Vitamin A, which is essential to maintain the health of the epithelium and to keep the life cycle of the cells of the scalp normal. Deficiency in Vitamin A may make hair brittle and dry. Vitamin A is found in the foods of animal origins such as milk, yogurt, cheese, eggs and butter. Dark chocolate Cocoa contains copper, which is a valuable ingredient for healthy and strong hair. Prefer chocolates that have a high cocoa content (more than 65%).
