Foods that can fight hair loss
Male pattern baldness, you could say, is almost like the consequential karma for the inequality forced upon women in our world. And, while we aim to rid our society of inequality, we also aim to cure our society of Alopecia – the scientific word for any balding, male or female. Unfortunately, the day has not yet arrived for either of these goals. Women are still fighting a tremendous battle against inequality, and men are still going bald.
Research conducted in the UK, has found that nearly 50% of all men notice considerable hair loss by their mid-thirties. And, by their 65th birthday this number creeps up past 60%. While there is an abundance of products on the market, from laser treatment, follicle transplants, to serum treatments, usually the success varies case, by case.
Fortunately, Next International stocks a Kerastase wonder product, that at the very least will slow your balding process. If male pattern baldness is something which concerns you, please speak with your Next International stylist about Kerastase’s hair loss treatment. In the meantime, there are some very basic things that you can do to help curb the onset of hair loss.
Diet. We all know how important diet is to our lives. Food is the energy our body requires to perform all its magnificent functions.
Protein, is a great way to build muscle. It is also a great way to help maintain a heathy head of hair. However, saving the planet is also human imperative. So, instead of suggesting you eat a bunch of animal, here are some great plant based protein alternatives:
Seitan, has a humongous 21 grams of protein per 1/3rd cup serving.
Tofu, and soy carry a great 10 grams of protein per ½ cup serving.
And, the old favorite of rice and beans weigh in at 7 grams per 1 cup serving.
Magnesium, is often forgotten about in our diets, and too often supplemented by taking unnecessary multivitamins. It is also a great way to help keep your hairs natural cycles in flow, without excessive loss in the shedding stage.
Spinach, contains 157 milligrams per 1 cup serving.
Almonds, contains 80 milligrams, per 28 grams.
And, black beans carry 60 milligrams per ½ cup serving.
Omega 3, is a fatty acid often associated with fish. However, with over fishing causing exponential reductions in fish numbers across the globe, sometimes it’s best to look at plant based options for these traditionally meat based properties.
Chia seeds, ground linseed, hemp seeds, and walnuts are great sources of omega 3, without having to go near a fish. Nuts, and seeds are a great source of lots of the essentials to healthy hair growth, muscle growth, and just about every other function of the human body.
Looking for multi-nut muesli to start your day off, is a great way to boost your body of all the essentials you require. If looking for a dairy free accompaniment to your muesli, coconut milk, or coconut yogurt are great options for a light, healthy start to your day.
