Top Ten Best Food For Healthy Hair

We all know that a well-balanced diet is healthy for our body and critical for optimal health and performance. Our hair is no different. A mixture of protein, complex carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and iron are all required for healthy, strong hair.

It’s all about balance when it comes to optimal nutrition for maintaining healthy hair. “Hair is a fast-growing tissue and it’s likely to make demands on your body,” says Brian Thompson, principal trichologist and director of product development at Philip Kingsley Trichological Centre in New York and London. “You need a mixture of protein, complex carbohydrates, and vitamins and minerals. But if you consume too much of any one thing, particularly certain vitamins and minerals, you can create problems with hair growth.”

Read on for the 10 top foods that should be the foundation of your healthy hair diet.

Carrots

Carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A, which promotes a healthy scalp along with good vision. Since a healthy scalp is essential for a shiny, well-conditioned head of hair, you’d be wise to include carrots in your diet as snacks or toppings on your salad.

Low-Fat Dairy Products

Low-fat dairy products like skim milk and yogurt are great sources of calcium, an important mineral for hair growth. They also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources. For some healthy hair foods “to-go,” try throwing a yogurt or cottage cheese cup in your bag when you head out in the morning to snack on later in the day. You can even boost their hair benefits by stirring in a couple of tablespoons of ground flaxseeds or walnuts for omega-3 fatty acids and zinc.

Oysters

Oysters may be better known for their reputation as an aphrodisiac, but they can also lead to healthy hair and who doesn’t love that? The key to their love and hair-boosting abilities is zinc a powerful antioxidant. If oysters don’t make a regular appearance on your dinner plate, don’t despair. In addition to getting it from whole grains and nuts, you can also get zinc from beef and lamb.

Whole Grains

Sink your teeth into hearty whole grains, including whole-wheat bread and fortified whole-grain breakfast cereals, for a hair-healthy dose of zinc, iron, and B vitamins.

A whole-grain snack can also be a great go-to food when your energy is zapped halfway through the afternoon, and you’ve still got hours to go before dinner.

Eggs

When it comes to healthy hair, it doesn’t matter whether you like your eggs scrambled, fried, or over easy. However they’re served up, eggs are one of the best protein sources you can find. They also contain biotin and vitamin B-12, which are important beauty nutrients.

Nuts

Do you go nuts for thick, shiny hair? You should. Brazil nuts are one of nature’s best sources of selenium, an important mineral for the health of your scalp.

Walnuts contain alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that may help condition your hair. They are also a terrific source of zinc, as are cashews, pecans, and almonds. A zinc deficiency can lead to hair shedding, so make sure nuts are a regular on your healthy hair menu.

Beans

Beans, beans, they’re good for your … hair? Yes, it’s true. Legumes like kidney beans and lentils should be an important part of your hair-care diet. Not only do they provide plentiful protein to promote hair growth, but ample iron, zinc, and biotin. While rare, biotin deficiencies can result in brittle hair. Blatner, who is also a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association, recommends three or more cups of lentils or beans each week.

Dark Green Vegetables

Popeye the Sailor Man didn’t eat all that spinach for healthy hair, but he could have. Spinach, like broccoli and Swiss chard, is an excellent source of vitamins A and C, which your body needs to produce sebum. The oily substance, secreted by your hair follicles, is the body’s natural hair conditioner. Dark green vegetables also provide iron and calcium.

Water

If you have dry hair or just want to prevent straw-like strands drink more. “Hair is one-quarter water,” White says. He recommends the typical eight glasses a day. Bring a water bottle to work so you don’t spend the entire day refilling your mug at the fountain.

Beef

If you don’t have high cholesterol, Thompson recommends eating red meat twice a week for optimal hair health. Not only does beef have the protein you need, but also B vitamins, iron, and zinc, important minerals for healthy hair.

Best Hair Care Tips For Children’s

Best Hair Care Tips For Children’s

Caring for your child’s hair can be confusing with so many products on the market. As a parent, you may wonder which products to use and whether to go for the latest fad products marketed for kids. Experimenting will help you to arrive at the best haircare routine for your child.

So how do you as a parent, avoid, annoying the stylist, upsetting your child and getting yourself stressed? Well this is where your best child psychology skills come into play! Sometimes your child will have unwarranted fears and you have to help to overcome them. Creating trust by taking their concerns seriously is the first and most important step. Promising a treat can also help.

Best of all is to check in your local area to see if there is one of the growing number of new specialized children’s salons available. Salon chains like Cartoon Cuts are designed to make the hair cut experience more positive and entertaining for small children: toys, video games, specially shaped chairs and specially-trained stylists, all help to ensue the experience is more like going to a theme park rather than a visit to the doctor.

Causes of Hair Loss in Children

    * One of the most common causes of hair loss in children includes fungal infections like scalp ringworm.
    * In today’s world children of all ages are also put under a lot of stress, especially when it comes to performing in school, which could be the leading cause of hair loss, not just in children, but also in adults.
    * There are also certain medical conditions and diseases like typhoid, which can lead to temporary hair loss in children and adults.
    * Children who are undergoing chemotherapy as a part of cancer treatment would also experience hair fall. The same reaction may be seen in children who are on certain strong medication.
    * In several cases, problems of hair loss in children could be either due to an unhealthy diet or because of the excessive use of hair products that contain harsh chemicals.
    * Hair loss problems in children could also be caused by genetic factors.

Time for a Cut

If your child does not have a good hair cut, no amount of the right product will make their hair look good. Be sure to take your child to a qualified professional for a good hair cut. You might veer away from bargain hair salons offering fast cuts done on dry hair. These salons are often rushed and your child’s haircut will reflect this. Dishing out money for a better cut less often will result in a hair shape that is easier to manage and that works better with your child’s hair type. While at the salon, ask the stylist for suggestions on how to care for your child’s hair type.

Hair Care Tips

Washing

Wash hair using a mild shampoo that doesn’t sting their eyes. When they are old enough, teach them how to shampoo and rinse their own hair. Use conditioner when your child is older and has longer hair. Avoid putting conditioner on the scalp.

Tangles

Detangling is best done before you wash your child’s hair. Use a wide tooth comb and start at the bottom of the hair, working your way up. Tangles can cause terrible battles between you and your child. To reduce the pain of combing tangled hair, hold taut the section of hair you are trying to comb. For  problematic tangles, you can spray in a good detangler.

Combing/Brushing

Encourage your child to comb/ brush their own hair. Don’t believe the myth about brushing hair 100 strokes before bedtime – this over stimulates the sebaceous glands and leaves hair very greasy. Use a comb, not a brush on hair that is wet. It promotes shine and minimizes hair breakage.

Accessories

use good quality brushes, combs and accessories for your child’s hair. Kids love having fun clips and hair ties. Avoid hair clips with sharp teeth, as these can hurt the scalp and cause hair damage. Keeping hair neatly tied back is a good way of avoiding hair tangling.

As your children get older, they will begin to have preferences about the hairstyles they like. This is a natural identity issue that stays with us into adulthood. By teaching your children good hair care techniques when they are young, you will be guiding them to a lifetime of healthy hair.
