Other solutions against alopecia
Other solutions to fight against alopecia we can find in other places than pharmacies are those related to food. There are not few foods that help us strengthen the hair follicles.
A good example of this is onion, garlic or lemon, which are very helpful in fighting against possible infections of the scalp.
So are foods rich in vitamin B1, B6 and B12 such as carrots or coconut milk. These foods, also rich in antioxidants, help strengthen hair.
Other food groups that must appear in our diet, considering that they are good at repairing tissues such as skin, nails or hair, are usually eggs, nuts, blue fish, dairy and fruits and vegetables.
In addition to foods with vitamin B, it is important to eat food rich in vitamin A and C, omega 3, and those rich in iron, zinc or potassium.
Finally, remember again the importance of quick detection of alopecia to avoid it to extend to the entire scalp. That is why, in the case you realize an unusual fall of hair, we recommend you visit a hair health specialist so, he will offer you the right solution for your problem after examining you.
No matter if it is through any of the existing treatments to strengthen the hair, or a hair transplant intervention destined to repopulate those areas where the hair has stopped growing, this will help you show off a dense, leafy, healthy and bright hair.
