What are the dietary recommendations for hair growth
from Dermatology Times
Many dietary supplements have entered the market to support increased hair growth. Some of these products are aimed at the dermatologist-dispensed market. Luxuriant hair is basically a sign of overall health and proper hair care. A good diet rich in protein is necessary for hair growth, since hair is pure protein. People who eat total vegetarian or vegan diets may have trouble getting an adequate mix of amino acids for protein synthesis. Dermatologists should take a dietary history, especially from young women, who note hair loss. Further, dermatologists should take a menstrual history as heavy monthly blood loss may cause fluctuating anemia in patients on a normal or special diet.
