To put it mildly, the process of growing out your hair is drawn out and complicated. When all you want is longer, fuller-looking hair, the path needs a lot of patience and trial and error, which can be difficult. We can help if you feel like you’ve tried every hair oil, serum, and homemade mask there is in an attempt to promote hair growth but still aren’t seeing the results you were hoping for. The first step in accelerating the growth of longer hair is to understand the various factors that influence how quickly (or slowly) hair grows. When it comes to your hair, the adage “You are what you eat” is accurate. According to studies, vitamins and minerals from meals play a significant part in the hair follicle growth cycle. Your hair’s strength and health may be an indicator of what’s going on within your body and may also draw attention to any vitamin shortages that may be slowing down hair growth. You can make sure you’re getting the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients required for hair development by eating a balanced diet that includes proteins, fruits, vegetables, and carbohydrates. Consuming foods like salmon for its omega-3 fatty acids, which can encourage hair growth, berries for their antioxidant characteristics, which can strengthen hair, and sweet potatoes for their high vitamin A content, which research shows is also beneficial for the formation of healthy hair. If you think your diet may be the cause of any hair issues, talk to your doctor about getting a blood test to check for vitamin deficiencies that may be causing your hair to become thin or thinning.
