The Anti-Inflammatory Drink You Should Have Every Morning To Regrow Thinning Hair, According To Experts

Most thinning hair sufferers turn to a serum or treatment to help kick-start hair growth, but dermatologists say that adjusting your diet is the way to go. “[Lifeless hair] is usually coming from the inside out,” says Michael Stranko, a hair stylist at Hair Designs by Karen Greb in Pittsburgh, who credits a poor diet with unhealthy strands. “When you aren’t getting a proper nutrition it … comes out through the hair.”

Our strands heavily rely on the vitamins and minerals that come from the foods and drinks that we consume, which is why it's recommended to follow a nutrient-rich diet that is high in lean proteins and healthy fats for healthier hair. "If you don’t have enough protein, you can end up having hair that is dry and thinner. Protein is the building block for … keratin,” says Dr. Debra Wattenberg, a New York City dermatologist at NY Skin Rx.

Wondering if you're diet could use a refresh for the sake of your tresses? Experts suggest incorporating a glass of fresh carrot juice into your morning routine can lead to thicker, stronger hair.

"Carrots have a high concentration of vitamin A, which helps promote hair and scalp health,” Lori Shemek tells Fox News, health coach and author of “Fire-Up Your Fat Burn.”

Shemek says that it's not uncommon for those following a diet that is low in vitamin A can contribute to thinning hair. 

“A deficiency in this vitamin can lead to hair loss as well," she adds. "Vitamin A plays a role in sebum production, much like spinach, and a diet rich in carrots can lead to faster hair growth through healthy sebum production.”

Not a fan of carrot juice? Thankfully, you can get the same hair-healthy nutrients from enjoying snacks like carrots and hummus as well, which actually turns out to be an excellent source of vitamin A, protein, and fat!
