Probably, you must be hearing a lot about the shampoo you should use to prevent hair fall, the best oil to regrow hair & spa sessions that can stop hair loss and enhance the hair quality. No doubt, they can do good to your hair. But, if you are looking for something which can give you long-lasting permanent results for hair loss, the first and foremost thing is to identify the root cause of it. Hair loss can occur due to several reasons including stress, nutritional deficiency, hormonal disorders like PCOS and thyroid, diabetes, etc. In women, anaemia (iron deficiency) is the primary reason for 60% of hair loss cases. A majority of people, who do crash diets or excessive gyming and do not supplement it with a nutritious diet experiences hair fall. This is because hair takes its nutrition from the food you eat. A healthy, balanced diet is the key to everything, including healthy hair. A diet that is not high enough in nutrients such as iron & protein can lead to hair loss. The good thing is that if a poor diet is a reason for your hair loss, it can be reversed by balancing the food intake. You can include the below mentioned foods to stop hair loss in your diet: Amla
Amla or Indian Gooseberry is the richest natural source of Vitamin C that helps reduce oxidative stress and prevents free radicals. It purifies the blood, helps in strengthening the hair follicles from within and reduces hair thinning. You can have amla murabba, amla candy (try Jiva Amla Chatpata Candy) or amla juice (Jiva Amla Juice) daily or add grated seasonal amlas to the vegetables.
Fenugreek seeds are one of the best foods to stop hair loss as they contain vitamin C, A and K, potassium, calcium, folic acid and nicotinic acid. They prevent hair fall and support scalp health. You can include fenugreek in your diet. You can also soak some fenugreek seeds overnight. Make a paste of it and mix it with some curd. Apply this pack at least 30 minutes before you wash your hair for healthy hair growth.
Aloe Vera Juice
Aloe vera contains antioxidants and essential hair nutrients like vitamin A, C and E, which prevent hair fall, promote hair growth and enhance hair quality. You can start your morning with Jiva Aloe Vera Juice for internal detoxification and purification of the body that automatically promotes hair growth and reduce hair fall.
This healthy, green vegetable is a great source of Vitamin A, C and K, iron, folate and potassium and is one of the best foods to stop hair loss, especially for women suffering from anaemia related hair loss. You can make a healthy drink for your hair by mixing spinach with beetroot, carrot and amla. Besides, you can have any seasonal green vegetable available.
To combat nutritional deficiency, having a seed mix daily is the best way. You can try Jiva Roasted Seed Mix for healthy hair and body. It is the powerhouse of nutrients as it contains the goodness of flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and watermelon seeds. It can be consumed directly in the form of a snack or sprinkle on breakfast cereal, smoothie, yoghurt or salad.
Please keep in mind that if you are losing 50-100 strands in a day, it is normal, but if you are losing more hair, consult an Ayurvedic doctor. You can visit our Jiva clinic or consult our doctors on a video call or phone. They will suggest a personalised treatment plan as per your condition including customised medicines, diet and lifestyle chart that will help you maintain long, shiny, healthy hair.
