Foods that prevent hair growth

Sugar: For your hair’s sake, please step away from the sweets. Sugar can interfere with the absorption of protein and we all know how important protein is for your hair. Vitamin E is also essential for healthy hair growth and sugar can lower the level of vitamin E that needs to get to your strands! This doesn’t mean you have to cut out sugar altogether. It just means that you should reduce your intake. You should consider substituting for natural sources of sugar like fruits or vegetables if you can’t kick the habit.

Salt: Salt should be used in moderation because excess sodium has been shown to cause hair to shed excessively. Sodium should be limited to less than 2,300mg a day and even less if you have high blood pressure, diabetes, or are over the age of 51. If you want to keep your curls full of body, sprinkle with caution.

Bleached white flour: Starchy foods are broken down into sugar and can cause your hair to thin. If you eat starchy foods like bread, pastas, cakes, and other floury deliciousness, it’s time to consider consuming smaller amount all the time.

Soft drinks: Consider what’s really going on when you pick up that carbonated soft drink. One soda contains an inordinate amount of processed sugar, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, and chemical-filled colours that don’t provide any nutrients for your hair — except completely dry out your hair.

Alcohol: If you want to keep a full head of hair, it might be in your best interest to reduce your alcohol intake, starting now. Excessive drinking reduces the amount of zinc, folic acid, vitamin B, and vitamin C in your body. What does that mean for your curls? It weakens your hair, makes it difficult to grow, and contributes to hair loss if you’re overindulging with the loose juice. Constant alcohol consumption can definitely take a toll if you aren’t mindful of your intake.
