Load up on pro­tein-rich foods

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Beauty -

Your hair com­prises 95 per cent pro­tein (the rest is wa­ter), so a diet that’s high in pro­tein can help pro­mote health­ier tresses. “Look for foods such as fish, eggs, beans, and yo­gurt,” says Dr Tan. “Vi­ta­mins are im­por­tant for gen­eral health and, by ex­ten­sion, hair health. Nu­tri­tional de­fi­cien­cies in iron and zinc can ac­cel­er­ate hair loss so a good mul­ti­vi­ta­min with vi­ta­min B, zinc and bi­otin, taken daily, will help hair grow stronger and health­ier.”
