You'll be wondering how to grow your hair quicker, whether you've chosen to use lockdown to grow out a flower, have already been a little overzealous with the scissors, or are simply pinning for longer strands. To help you get started, here are expert for tips on how to achieve the swishy ponytail of your dream.
1- Make sure you're getting enough iron in your diet.
Many women do not ingest enough iron. One in every ten British women is anaemic, a disorder caused by a lack of iron in the diet, which means the body isn't producing enough healthy red blood cells. Mr Chris D'Souza, a hair specialist and hair transplant surgeon, says, "Iron is critical for hair growth."
Your body can't produce enough hemoglobin for your blood if you don't have enough. Your cells, including those that power your mane, need oxygen to repair and expand. Make sure your diet is high in iron-rich foods to ensure you're getting enough of the mineral. Lentils, cashews, and red meat, as well as dark leafy greens like spinach, work well.
2-Boost your zinc intake.
'Eating enough zinc will help keep your hair tissue growing,' says Mr D'Souza. Zinc is a necessary mineral for healthy hair growth and hair follicle defense, but your body cannot store it, so you must ingest it on a regular basis. Pumpkin seeds, shellfish and fish, eggs, and legumes (think chickpeas and lentils) are all healthy sources of this nutrient. Make sure you get a lot of the above a few times.
3-Eat foods high in selenium.
This lesser-known trace mineral contains enzymes that assist your hair follicles in dealing with environmental aggressors such as pollution and UV rays, enabling your locks to grow solid. 'The main vegan source is Brazil nuts, but there are also eggs, chicken, and beef,' says Mr D'Souza.
4- Increase your vitamins intake
'Vitamin A contributes to cell formation. This vitamin can be found in cheese, eggs, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash. Vitamin C is present in peppers, broccoli, and spinach, and it aids in the development of collagen, an essential component of healthy hair growth (vitamin C also helps with iron absorption).Although Vitamin E offers healthy oils and antioxidant benefits, it is abundant in all nuts and seeds,' says Eve Kalinik, Nutritional Therapist and Gut Health Specialist.
5- Raise your omega-3 consumption
'Omega-3 essential fatty acids are essential for supplying healthy fats that we need to eat through our diet; they provide oils that keep hair shiny and hydrated. Oily fish, such as salmon, mackerel, sardines, anchovies, and pilchards, are the best sources of these fatty acids. Fatty acids can also be present in organic grass-fed beef, organic eggs, and a number of plant-based foods.
6-Cut off the split ends
Yes, paying for a cut when you just want the tiniest bits snipped is inconvenient. Broken hair and split ends, on the other hand, will never grow back and must be removed. Leaving splits in your hair would only cause the split to worsen, resulting in further breakage.
