There are many vitamins and nutrients that your body needs in order to produce healthy and strong hair. If any of these are lacking, your hair shafts can become weak resulting in massive shedding, also known as hair loss. Some foods you should add to your diet to increase hair health include:

Eggs & Chicken: Eggs and chicken are a great source of protein to help produce to encourage hair growth and prevent hair loss.

Dried fruit and nuts: Packed with iron, sulphur and biotin, dried fruit and nuts (and almonds in particular) are a great source of vitamin E which enhances blood circulation and maintains healthy hair follicles.

Green Vegetables: Spinach (palak) and broccoli are an excellent source of vitamin A and vitamin C, which your body needs to produce sebum. Green vegetables also provide iron and calcium.

Fruits: Melons, berries, bananas, oranges, apples and many other fruits can supply your body with the proper vitamins to reduce hair loss.

Water: Consuming at least eight glasses of water per day will help transport the needed nutrients to your hair and help keep your hair strands hydrated and strong.
