Top 8 hair growing fruits and vegetables you should consider including in your diet

Hair loss and slowed hair growth are two of the most common hair issues that most people experience. Our hair needs special care and nutrition in order to thrive. If you do not care about your hair, you will not experience hair loss or thinning.

Although you might need to see a dermatologist in certain severe cases, there are some amazing home remedies that can help replenish and rejuvenate your hair while also encouraging hair growth. We're talking about the vegetables in your refrigerator.

Your hair needs important vitamins and nutrients to stay healthy, and these vegetables provide certain vitamins and minerals to your hair, even when applied topically, resulting in thick, long and solid hair.

Let's take a closer look at these vegetables to see if they can help with hair development.

1. Onion is a vegetable.

The onion is a fantastic nutrient for your hair. It contains essential minerals including zinc, sulphur, and iron, which promote hair growth by improving collagen production and blood circulation in the scalp. According to research, using onion topically will help you re-grow your hair.

2. Spinach is a leafy green vegetable.

Remember how our mothers nagged us to eat more green leafy vegetables, especially spinach? She wasn't entirely wrong. Spinach is high in basic nutrients such as iron and magnesium, as well as vitamins A, C, and D. These not only help to promote hair growth, but also to keep the scalp healthy.

3. Beetroot

Beetroot is high in vitamins and minerals, and when applied topically, it can help with hair growth. Vitamin C in beetroot has strong antioxidant properties and aids in the production of collagen in the scalp, which helps to prevent hair loss and promote hair growth.

Vitamin C and zinc in pumpkin aid hair growth by promoting collagen production. Vitamin E protects against free radical damage and increases scalp blood circulation, resulting in strong, long hair.

6. Garlic

Garlic has long been used as a home remedy for a variety of skin and hair problems, including hair loss. It contains a lot of sulphur, which helps to nourish your scalp and promote hair development.

7. Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are high in beta-carotene, which makes them an effective and efficient remedy for promoting hair growth and maintaining a healthy scalp. It also contains vitamin C and fatty acids, both of which are necessary for healthy hair growth.
