Foods to Avoid and Foods to Eat.

The Shave-less FUE and SmartGraft are minimally invasive hair restoration procedures. However, it is important to give your body plenty of support throughout the healing process. Your hair is often the first thing to go when your body is in pain.

Essential fatty acids and other nutrients can cause hair follicles to malfunction which could lead to thinning of bald spots. Nutrient-rich foods can help you recover your hair and encourage new growth. After hair restoration, it can take up to six months for you to start seeing results.

You can support shiny, beautiful hair by getting started on a healthy lifestyle.

What to Eat

Protein

Your hair is composed of protein. This means that you will need to eat a lot of it while recovering. You can get a wide range of essential amino acids from eating lots of eggs, chicken, fish, milk, cheese, beans, seeds, and nuts.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Although Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for many functions of the body, they are often missing in American diets. These fatty acids can be found in oily fish such as salmon, mackerel, and herring. Flaxseeds, walnuts, and avocado are all available as vegetarian sources.

Vitamins

A varied diet that is based on whole foods will ensure your body gets all the vitamins it needs. You can choose from brown rice, spinach, whole-grain pasta, black beans and lettuce as well as vegetables like zucchini, whole-grain pasta, whole-grain noodles, black beans, green peppers, onions, almonds, and peppers. You can fill the gaps with a high-quality vitamin.

Foods to Avoid

Avoid:

  • Alcohol
  • Junk food
  • Stress can last for long periods

Stress can lead to hair loss, just like malnutrition. You can complement your efforts by having a positive outlook, deep breathing, and getting adequate sleep.
