Iron is an important component of carrying oxygen in your blood. With the deficiency of iron, you can face anemia; thus fatigue and finally, hair loss. In women undergoing menopause, hair loss is a common problem which is only due to the reason of iron deficiency. Thus, before menopause, women must take multivitamins which are rich in iron.

Lentils: lentils are also very rich source of iron-rich proteins. For hair growth, keratin is a very important building material which makes u the hair structure. Without this protein, hairs are less likely to grow. Moreover, it has vitamin C in it which improves the body’s ability to absorb non-heme iron or plant iron. So, grab your plate full of lentils and take a step ahead healthy lifestyle.

Sweet potatoes: sweet potatoes are a rich source of beta carotenes. After the intake, beta carotenes are converted into vitamin A. Vitamin A is necessary for the cell growth of the body including hair. The deficiency of vitamin A leads to the dry and dull hair as well as dull and dry skin which results in dandruff growth in the hair. But again, here the strategy applies: “excess of everything is bad”. A high amount on Vitamin A in the body results in hair loss.

Oysters: oysters are rich source of zinc which is an important constituent of tissue growth and repair. Zinc is responsible of the proper functioning of oil glands around the hair follicles which improves hair growth. Zinc deficiency can cause hair loss, dandruff and slow growth.

Bell peppers: these are also a rich source of vitamin C which helps in forming collagen in your body. Collagen is very important for optimal hair growth which makes up blood vessels, skin and hair follicles. If a person has even a minor deficiency of vitamin C, he will have split ends, dry hair and hairs which are easily broken.
