The rest of this page provides an overview of diet-related habits — such as stepping up your dietary intake of vitamin C, copper, zinc, beta-carotene, and silica — that can help prevent hair loss. The first tip for preventing hair loss is to add more vitamin C rich foods to your diet. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen which in turn supports hair follicles and keeps blood vessels in the scalp healthy.
Vitamin C also increases iron absorption from foods. To enhance the beneficial effects of vitamin C on hair, combine foods rich in vitamin C with foods that contain vitamin E, an important vitamin that may also help reduce hair loss due to its ability to boost circulation to the scalp.
Vitamin C and vitamin E protect each other and are more effective when consumed together. Hair is more than 90 percent protein, and a diet that is too low in protein may cause hair loss. Protein is abundant in a wide range of foods, particularly in foods of animal origin. A typical Western diet usually contains sufficient amounts of protein and eating additional protein for hair growth is not necessary. Even though hair is made of protein, excessive amounts of dietary protein are unlikely to improve hair growth and may cause other health problems.
Another good tip is to incorporate dietary sources of vitamin A into your hair loss prevention diet. Vitamin A promotes the growth of healthy cells and tissues, including hair and the scalp. A deficiency of vitamin A can cause hair loss and thinning hair. If you are aiming at having healthy-looking, strong hair, be sure to eat plenty of foods rich in B vitamins. B vitamins are in essence a complex of vitamins that often work together and co-exist in the same foods.
Evidence suggests that a sufficient intake of the B vitamins, particularly of vitamins B6 pyridoxine , B12 riboflavin , B9 folate , B7 biotin , B5 pantothenic acid and B3 niacin , is necessary for healthy hair. Pantothenic acid and biotin are thought to slow hair loss and prevent graying of hair.
Pyridoxine helps the body produce melanin, which gives hair its color. It also prevents hair loss and facilitates the absorption of zinc. In addition, pyridoxine, together with folate and riboflavin, helps form hemoglobin blood cells. Hemoglobin is needed for transporting oxygen from the lungs to the other tissues in the body, including hair.
An undisrupted supply of oxygen is necessary for healthy hair. I have tried all kinds of medications n home remedies n nothing worked among these , I m alot disappointed plz help me in this matter.

Multiply your target weight by 10 to get your daily calorie limit. Eat enough protein, which is a major component of the hair. Protein needs are based on individual factors such as body weight and activity levels. Use a food calculator, such as the planner at MyPyramid.
Incorporate whole grains, fruits and vegetables into your diet. Whole grains contain iron which, according to the National Anemia Action Council, is a major factor in hair loss.
