It is popularly said that you are what you eat and that holds true for our hair too. However, while we struggle to maintain the texture and strength of our tresses, hair damage is possible even when indoors.

Every individual has different hair type and texture, which calls for a specific routine. One way of identifying your hair type is to go a few days without using any product and observe if it’s oily, dry or normal. Eating a varied and nutritious diet can also boost hair growth. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, one loses 50 to 100 hairs each day.

So here are some foods that contain key nutrients for good hair growth:

* Eggs: They contains biotin which helps boost hair growth. It also contains vitamin D and certain minerals.

* In a 2018 animal study, ‘Mackerel-Derived Fermented Fish Oil Promotes Hair Growth by Anagen-Stimulating Pathways’ researchers found that fish oil extract containing docosahexaenoic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid, boosted hair growth by increasing the activity of certain proteins in the body.
