Vegetables are our best friends when we are trying to lose some pounds, right? What with the dieting and all! These humbles veggies are also great for our hair. These fruits and vegetable for hair growth contain vitamins, fibres and minerals which are known to help with hair growth and maintaining the texture and smoothness.

Here I’ll list down some pointers to keep your hair healthy and happy. Before that, like always, here are some things to know before you start with the tips

  1. Clean, damp hair absorbs nutrients better than dry, dirty hair. It might look like a cumbersome task to wash your hair, put on a pack and then wash it again, but its totally worth it. There is a reason why salons give you a hair wash before and treatment and styling.
  2. Using warm water opens up your hair and scalp pores while cold water closes them. So use warm water before application and cold water post application.
  3. Avoid using hot water on your hair as it drains hair of its natural oils and lessens the elasticity.
  4. Some vegetables leave a weird smell, so follow up with your favorite conditioner to mask the smell.
  5. Any mask needs ample time to penetrate into your hair. Leave on the mask for atleast 30 minutes to see effects.
  6. Also, do not over leave it. When the mask starts drying, it might draw water from hair and counter act the results.

    Here is a stupid question. At the beginning of the article I thought we were going to put the veggies on our hair, but later down the second list it sounded like we had to eat them to make our hair luscious long. What is the right way to do it?

    Years ago, I found a bald spot on my head. This was caused by a hair relaxer. A friend suggested a homemade treatment that worked wonders. I boiled and blended carrots, I added rosemary leaves, coconut milk and birth control pills.
    Another suggestion, increase the amount of veggies you eat. I’ve been a vegetarian for 1.5 yrs and my hair is the longest it’s ever been.
