1. Increase Nutrient Intake

Eat healthily To some, this may seem more difficult to accomplish. By increasing your nutrient intake, I mean being conscious on the foods you put into your body. If you are a person who loves greasy, unhealthy foods, start making a plan on how you are going to limit that food in your diet. An individual suffering from hair loss needs to have an adequate number of vitamins and minerals in their diet each day! Without these, your hair will suffer.

Focus on foods that are high in protein and vitamins. These foods consist of, but are not limited to, eggs, vegetables, nuts, seeds, meats, fish, and cheese. The reason you want to consume high protein foods is because your hair is made up of almost entirely proteins. With this being said, this is one of the most important nutrients that you can feed your hair. If you are someone who’s palette does not agree with these foods, consume a multivitamin on a daily basis to make sure you are getting what your body and hair needs to thrive.

2. Laser Caps
