We all wish for thick, voluminous hair, but it requires patience and consistency. Good shampoo and conditioner are important, but they need to be coupled with healthy lifestyle habits. Dixa Bhavsar, an Ayurveda doctor, recently took to Instagram to share some major tips that can help make your hair healthy and shiny. Take a look at what she suggested.
Consume adequate protein via lentils, nuts, and seeds. Also, consume vitamin C to boost collagen production. She added that “amla strengthens your hair roots and delays premature greying of hair”.
It is also advisable to add equivalent supplements of biotin from fermented foods, and consume a healthy amount of iron. This can be obtained from sesame seeds, spinach, methi and more. She shared “Bhringraj is known as Keshraj. It is considered best among the herbs used for hair health. It induces healthy hair growth and makes your hair strong and smooth”.
