In winter, heat and energy get accumulated in the body. Thankfully, our digestion power increases, and even heavy food is easily digested. Which is good news for the hair — rich food, richer hair. Here are a few food stuff that can be included in the diet.

*Among cereals, go for wheat, barley, maize, etc

*Black gram, green lentil, soyabean are best among pulses

*Carrot, spinach, tomato, green coriander, fenugreek, onion, radish, cauliflower, beetroot, brinjal and garlic come loaded with goodness for hair

*Milk, fresh curd, lassi, sweet cream, and pure ghee are must-haves

*Egg, fish, chicken, liver of goat, and oil of sea fish are rich sources of Vitamin A

*Orange, grapes, papaya, banana, apple, pineapple, guava and amla aid in rapid hair growth

A vitamin-rich diet is imperative for healthy hair growth — deficiency of Vitamin A causes hair dryness and dullness, while Vitamin B lends lustre and volume to hair. So eat good, and watch your hair make heads turn!
