Beet and Carrot Salad with Ginger

This recipe pairs beets with carrots to create a powerful natural remedy for preventing hair loss. Beets are loaded with folate, a micronutrient that plays a role in hemoglobin formation. Hemoglobin is needed for transporting oxygen from the lungs to other tissues in the body, including hair. Carrots on the other hand are one of the best natural sources of beta-carotene, an important nutrient that promotes healthy hair due to its role as a precursor to vitamin A. A deficiency of vitamin A has been associated with hair loss and thinning hair.

Tomato, Cucumber and Red Onion Salad

Tomatoes provide generous amounts of hair health promoting nutrients, including copper, iron, carotenoids, and B vitamins. Red onions, on the other hand, are rich in sulphur, a mineral that is found in all cells of the human body and that is particularly abundant in our hair, skin, and nails. Sulfur is often referred to as "nature's beauty mineral" because of its capability to aid in good blood circulation, reduce skin inflammation, and promote hair growth. It also plays a role in the metabolism of several important B-vitamins including vitamins B1, B5 and B7. First signs of a sulphur deficiency often include loss of hair, brittle hair and nails, and dry skin.

Romaine and Smoked Salmon Salad

Salmon contains astaxanthin, a carotenoid with strong antioxidant properties. Radishes help hair growth faster due to their ability to boost circulation to the scalp. Romaine lettuce and carrots are rich in pro-vitamin A and vitamin C which are also needed for normal hair growth.

Shrimp and Eggs on Romaine Lettuce

Both eggs and shrimp contain plenty of iron, a mineral that is crucial for healthy hair growth. Iron carries oxygen to the hair, and an inadequate intake of iron may cause the hair follicles to starve of oxygen. Women who are menstruating (especially if they have heavy periods), women who are pregnant or have just given birth, long-distance runners, and vegans are often deficient in iron.

Salmon Salad

Salmon also contains astaxanthin, a carotenoid that gives salmon its pink color and that can act as a potent antioxidant. Also tomatoes are cram-full of hair health promoting nutrients, including copper, iron, carotenoids, and B vitamins, and onions are rich in sulphur.
