In the priority list of food being served, your hair is least priority! What does that mean? Your body sends nutrition to other, more important parts of the body, first, leaving your hair last in line.

For example, when you’re short on iron, your hair is definitely not getting any. Your body, rather intelligently, sends it to organs that need it the most, leaving your hair starved of nutrition and strength.  Your hair gets pushed to the resting phase, or what scientists call, the ‘catagen' phase. Which in lay man terms means, hair fall.

Speaking of scientists, Dr. Aparna Santhanam says that lack of nutrition is the primary cause for hair fall.   Many women in India are nutritionally imbalanced, due to lack of awareness about what to eat. Largely, women are vegetarian, and those who aren’t, don’t eat the adequate amount of protein and iron. During cultural occasions, they tend to fast, leading to hair loss amongst other problems. Going on crash diets also leads to hair fall.

So, don’t let your hair go hungry!  Because when it’s under fed, it affects not just your hair’s health, but also how it looks. All you need to do to combat hair fall is to eat well! So feed it with a generous dose of orange and green leafy veggies, brightly coloured fruits like guava and lemon, fix and eggs, soaked almond and sunflower seeds. Here are 10 hair Superfoods that will help you eat your way to luscious locks!

Go ahead, take that second helping. Your hair will thank you for it!
