Delicious
(NaturalNews) Shiny, healthy and abundant hair is of great value to people. When hair starts thinning or falling out, it can cause panic, distress and anxiety for the individuals concerned. Many cures are put forward by the hair industry, yet dietary deficiencies, poor dietary choices, toxic hair care products and poor hair care are often the cause. Stress and chronic disorders can also cause hair loss. There is no overnight cure for hair that has been damaged by a bad diet. Encourage hair growth with natural "hair foods".

Alfalfa Sprouts for Hair Growth

Alfalfa sprouts are a good source of vitamins A, B2, B5, C and K. Alfalfa sprouts contain phytochemicals and folic acid. In addition, the sprouts contain trace elements such as zinc, copper and magnesium, all necessary for strong hair and a healthy scalp.

Don't bother with shop bought sprouts, which may have been standing on the shelves for days - grow these exceptionally nutritious sprouts at home:

Method:

Measure 3 tablespoons of alfalfa seeds, rinse under cold water and drain. Place the seeds into the bottom of a wide necked glass jar. Add cool, pure water to the jar so it covers the seeds. Allow the seeds to soak overnight.

In the morning, attach a piece of cheesecloth over the jar opening with a rubber band. Strain the water through the cloth. Ensure that all the water is out or it may cause the seeds to rot. Do not remove the seeds from the container.

Rinse the seeds and jar every day with pure water. After 5 days or so, sprouts should be ready to eat. Add to salads, sandwiches or stir fried vegetables.

Vegetables for Hair Growth

Eat leafy green vegetables, such as spinach, regularly and raw if possible. Dark green vegetables provide iron and calcium, as well as Vitamin A and C. These vitamins assist in the production of sebum, which conditions the hair and promotes hair growth.

Carrots also provide vitamin A. Good for vision as well as hair, these vegetables will encourage follicles to increase their production.

Wheat Germ for Hair Growth

Wheat germ is a part of the wheat kernel. Wheat germ is very high in protein, but that is not all. It contains potassium, calcium, zinc, thiamine, niacin and vitamins that are necessary in order to maintain healthy hair and skin.

Foods to Avoid

Avoid dead foods, such as white sugar and processed foods. Cut down on excess caffeine and alcohol, which retards hair growth.
