Best Foods for Preventing Hair Loss

Genetics, age and environmental stressors can strip us of our youthful locks long before we are ready for it so it is no wonder that there is an entire industry dedicated to preventing hair loss. One way to help slow the process and support your body in proper hair growth is by eating foods that do just that. Below is a list of foods that help support you in this endeavor, and in the event that this is not enough rest assured there are other options that can help such as platelet rich plasma hair restoration.


Salmon is best known for its high omega-3 fatty acid count and so is often touted as a super food of sorts. This boost in the fatty acid does wonders for your body, as it works as a smoother for your hair by supporting the strands from the inside out. Salmon also helps the body process insulin more efficiently, which can help slow hair loss that is related to insulin-resistance.


Spinach is packed with iron, making it an exceptionally healthy food for women in particular. The fatty acids help coat your hair so that strands are shiny and works directly in creating a healthy and robust hair follicle. Spinach also provides a healthy dose of sebum, a natural oil that your body uses to condition your skin and hair.


Guava is one of the most Vitamin C rich fruits on this Earth, which helps prevent hair loss by supporting your strands against everyday abuse. In a study published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology participants with thinning hair were given Vitamin C supplements. The study found that those with the boost in Vitamin C showed a significant boost in hair growth.


Many people take B vitamins in order to boost their hair, skin and nails. Eggs, however, contain those precious B vitamins all within the shell. One vitamin in particular, Biotin, is most helpful against brittle hair and nails. By adding an egg or two to your diet each day, you are supporting your body against hair loss.


Oysters are rich in zinc, an important mineral in the hair growth process. Zinc deficiency can be evidenced by hair loss and thinning. With a little extra intake — or a lot with one serving of oysters — you are providing your hair follicles with this essential mineral so that it can build hair in a healthy and robust way.

Lean Poultry

Healthy, lean protein can help supporting the building blocks that make up your hair. If you are not consuming enough healthy protein, plant-based or otherwise, your hair will become dull and lifeless. By consuming healthy proteins, and perhaps in the form of lean poultry, you are providing the basic protein necessities needed to create and grow hair.


Raw nuts contain healthy fatty acids and oils that help support hair growth within the hair follicle. As the hair grows it also provides elastin to your hair making it supple and less likely to break, both of which are important in preventing hair loss.

Mushrooms Mushrooms are rich with copper, a mineral that helps maintain your hair color. Your hair can become dull and lifeless when your body is not receiving proper nutrients, so a boost of copper can bring it right back to life. A lack of this can also lead to premature graying so eat your mushrooms to keep your hair looking youthful!

PRP Hair Restoration Can Help

If a healthy diet doesn’t give you the results you’re looking for then PRP can help. This treatment method uses the patient’s own blood, making it a natural way to boost hair growth in thinning areas. The blood is separated so that platelets can be applied directly to the scalp via injections. The scalp is then treated with a dermaroller in order to gently puncture the scalp and initiate a healing response from your body. This healing response combined with the plasma applied, containing the platelets, helps stimulate hair growth. Within a few months patients can notice their hair fuller with the new growth.
