Hair is one of the important symbols of a person’s health and beauty. Who doesn’t want to have shiny hair？However, alopecia has dashed many people’s good wishes. It causes a great impact on the image, the psychology and physical health of a person with alopecia.
We need to know the cause of alopecia to find the keys to preventing hair loss. It is normal for a person to lose about 10-15 hairs per day. If the loss is more than 100 hairs per day, it is a phenomenon of alopecia.
Reasons for hair loss
As practitioners of life cultivation, we attribute hair loss to one or more of the following factors.
- Environmental impact
- Health conditions
- Nutritional conditions
- Mental conditions
- Bad lifestyles
We now focus on the effect of nutrition on hair loss.
The main component of hair is protein. Thus in our diet, we should eat more fish, milk, meat, soybeans, etc. which are good sources of protein.
Zinc participates in protein metabolism. It supports our immune function and plays an important role in hair growth. We should eat foods such as oysters, milk, sesame, soybeans, egg yolk, soft-shell turtle, prawns, apples and other foods that contain zinc.
Vitamin B6 inhibits scalp seborrhea and is beneficial for hair growth. We should eat foods such as animal liver, lean meat, chicken, fish, grains, walnuts, peanuts, sunflower seeds, bananas, malt and other foods that are a source of vitamins.
Pantothenic acid protects hair, promotes protein and steroid synthesis, and promotes hair regeneration. We should eat foods such as soybeans, sesame, lean meat, animal hearts and kidneys that are rich in pantothenic acid. (Advisory: Less than 100 grams of animal food and less than 150 grams of plant food per person per day. )
Biotin participates in the metabolism of sugar, fat and protein, is conducive to the utilization of B vitamins, and helps to maintain the health of hair. We should eat egg yolks, meat, milk, chicken, duck, soybeans, cereals and other foods that contain a certain amount of biotin.
Inositol is important for hair growth and preventing hair loss. We should eat fruits, vegetables, grains, meat, milk and other foods that contain inositol. Studies have shown that eating animals and plants at the same time leads to better effects. Advisory: excessive intake of caffeine can lead to a lack and loss of inositol in our body.
Vitamin E is especially important for hair health. We should eat more pumpkin, cauliflower, spinach and other vegetables that contact vitamin E.
To sum up, the most important thing for us to do to protect our hair is to properly eat various nutritional foods, especially vitamins, minerals, moderate saturated fatty acids and sugar, which all play an important role in maintaining the health of our hair.
As practitioners of life cultivation, those of us who want to keep lustre hair will stay away from butter, cream, fried food, chocolate and sugar as much as possible. As acidic substances in our blood stream increases, normal physiological metabolism will be affected, leading to withered hair, gray hair or broken hair.
Some of us will also shun away from heavy smoking or excessive drinking to avoid hair loss. Some of us do not care because we have lost most of our hair. Instead, we love our bald heads.
