eggs for thinning hair


It's no secret that eggs are filled with healthy proteins and nutrients for your body, but most people don't know that they can also help with hair loss, too! Regardless of whether you like your eggs scrambled, sunny side up or omelet-style, make sure you're having them to reap their anti-inflammatory and hair thickening beneifts. 


You can also apply the raw egg yolk to your hair to help revive your hair and give your follicles a little TLC! 

beans protein thinning hair


Hair loss is often caused by a lack of iron in your body, which is why Whitney Bowe, MD, a board-certified dermatologist based in New York City, always checks to see if her patients are iron deficient first when they complain about thinning hair. She recommends eating beans to replenish your body with the iron it needs to keep your hair full and healthy. 


salmon thinning hair


Salmon has been shown to boost hair health in those who are experiencing hair loss. This is all thanks to its omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin content, which provide hair with the protein it needs to produce keratin. 

chicken thinning hair


When you think of protein, one of the first foods that comes to mind is chicken. But, in order for the popular poultry to help restore your hair, you need to make sure that you're eating lean chicken (like grilled chicken) to avoid the fat that causes hair loss. Try eating a 4-ounce serving of grilled chicken to help get your thick and beautiful hair back.
