Summer’s come a-knocking, but are we ready to take on the heat? Hell yeah! This summer if you’re looking to shed anything, it better not be your hair. Sweat, heat and humidity, do little to keep damage from getting to your sunny ‘afro hair world’. This, in turn, results in hair fall. But since we’re armed and ready, this time it will be different! 5 hair foods are all we’ll need to eat our way to healthier hair and prevent hair fall.
In order to keep hair fall at bay, our tresses should have the strength of an iron bar. No wonder, Spinach is number one on our list. With its generous amounts of iron, omega-3, magnesium, potassium and calcium, spinach will give your crown the power to defeat hair fall leaving you with luscious looking locks.

Back up the iron with some much-needed Vitamin C to absorb it. Incorporate fruits like oranges, lime, lemon and kiwi in your diet to get a good amount of Vitamin C. It is important to mention that since Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, it gets drained when taken in excess. So, make sure you top it up every day, no matter what!
Eggs are an “abundance of protein”. And what is our hair made up of? A tough protein called Keratin. You girls know what to do next! Get cracking!
Probiotics for life! Yogurt boosts your hair growth pattern, preventing hair fall. Its main constituent is calcium. So, a cup of yogurt a day gives you hair ready to slay.
We’re nuts over walnuts for their crazy amounts of protein, Vitamin (B1, B2, B6 and E) and magnesium. These nutrients strengthen the hair follicles and protect them from potential damage on sunny days.
