Our skin as well as hair requires extra time and care as both of these are subjected to harsh chemicals through cleansing agents, pollution, chemically-grown fruits and vegetables, harsh water, stress and tension, improper nutrition, lack of proper sleep, exercise and inadequate intake of water.

Thick healthy hair is possible and there are certain super foods, which, if included in your diet can help you have better health and better hair too.

Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc and this helps cellular production, cell division and growth to form keratin, a protein that makes up hair.

Zinc is known to preserve the hair colour and can also be found in lentils, sesame seeds, lamb, chickpeas and oysters. Zinc also prevents dandruff, further keeping hair fall at bay.


Eggs promote hair growth and not only make them thicker but stronger as well. Eggs also come loaded with a combination of protein and biotin, both of which are super nutrients for healthy hair.

Fatty Fish

Fish like mackerel, salmon and herring are super foods for the hair as they are abundantly rich in omega-3 fatty acids.

Salmon is loaded with vitamin D and protein, which supports strong hair and a healthy scalp.


High in antioxidants, berries are a superfood for hair. The high antioxidant content helps protect hair follicles from damaging.

Strawberries, blueberries, and cranberries; these robust juicy fruits are rich in vitamin C, which aids in collagen production and iron absorption, two factors that promote hair growth.

Sweet Potatoes

A medium-sized sweet potato contains enough beta-carotene to provide more than four times your daily vitamin A needs.

Include this easily available vegetable in your daily diet and see the improvement in your hair.


It is one of my all time personal favourites and is full of nutrients like vitamin A and C, iron and folate.

Being a great plant-based source of iron, it helps red blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body and fuels the metabolism to aid growth and repair hair damage.

Vitamin A found in these dark leaves helps the skin glands produce sebum, which in turn keeps the hair and scalp moisturised and healthy.
