Get your dream hair by eating these foods - The Times of India

Researchers from compared serum ferritin (a way of measuring your body's iron stores) and vitamin D levels in women with hair loss with women who had healthy heads of hair and found that levels of the vitamin were as much as 121% lower among those with thinning. To get more D in your diet (the RDA is 600 IU, or 15 mcg), try fish sources like salmon, sardines or canned tuna, or fortified dairy sources like milk and yogurt (look for ones specifically labelled as fortified with vitamin D). Most iron-rich foods are also good sources of protein, so if your iron intake is adequate, odds are your protein consumption is, too. Your body goes into rationing mode when protein intake is too low, and one of the ways the body cuts back on its protein needs is to shut down hair growth, resulting in hair loss.
