Important Foods, Vitamins & Minerals for Healthy Hair in Winter

A balanced diet is essential to having good hair. There has to be a correct mix of vitamins and minerals, which change seasonally to ensure that hair remain healthy all year. Winter is probably the most damaging part of the year for hair, which is why to keep them lustrous, strong and shiny one must keep a list of food that have provide vitamins and minerals necessary for hair in the winter.

The following is a list of vitamins and minerals that are essential for good hair as well a list of food that should be consumed during winter to keep the hair in good shape.

Protein

Hair are made up of proteins, which is why it is crucial to ensure that a generous part of the diet comprises of proteins. In the absence of protein hair will become brittle, dry and weak. Chicken, fish, turkey, dairy products and eggs are superb sources of protein. In the winter legumes and nuts should also be consumed. Along with proteins, they contain healthy oils.

Iron

The composition of hair also contains a good amount of iron and its absence or shortage causes anaemia, which is a major cause of hair loss. The hair follicle and roots are supplied by a nutrient rich blood supply. The decrease in serum ferritin, iron in the blood level initiates shedding of hair. Iron is available in high content in animal products such as red meat, chicken and fish. Vegetarian sources of iron are lentils, spinach, broccoli, kale and salad greens.

Vitamin C

To give iron a boost in absorption, Vitamin C is very important. Moreover, Vitamin C is also an antioxidant commonly used by the body. It helps in the making collagen which strengthens the capillaries that supply the hair shaft. It can be found richly in strawberries, blueberries, oranges, sweet potatoes, kiwi fruits, broccoli, papaya, blackcurrants and guava.

Omega-3

Our body does not have the ability to make Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 is found in the scalp and they provide oil to keep the hair and scalp hydrated. Food containing Omega-3 includes salmon, herring, sardines, trout and mackerel. Vegetarian options are avocado, pumpkin seeds and walnuts.

Vitamin A

Sebum, the oily substance our hair create through sebaceous glands to provide a natural conditioner for the scalp is made through Vitamin A. Its absence causes itchy scalp and dry hair. Animal products as well as orange and yellow coloured vegetables contains Vitamin A like carrots, pumpkins and sweet potatoes.

Zinc & Selenium

Zinc & Selenium are essential to the protection of the scalp. A dry and flaky scalp is resulted in absence of these minerals. Its good food sources are oysters, beef, eggs fortified cereals, wholegrains and nuts.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E plays a crucial in providing protection from the Sun. It can be acquired from nuts, which should be a good part of the winter diet.

Biotin

The absence of biotin results in brittle hair leading to hair loss. It is a water-soluble Vitamin B and can be found in wholegrains, liver, egg yolk, soy flour and yeast.

“It is important to take benefit from different foods, especially seasonal foods all year round. Hair reflect what you eat, so maintaining a healthy diet to keep strong and healthy hair is essential. Keeping the right mix of proteins and vitamins is the key to surviving the winter,” said Skin Dermatologist Specialist Dr. Shumaila Khan in a recent interview.

Dr. Shumaila, who is a renowned skin specialist based in Islamabad, emphasized that to keep the body and hair hydrated since winter causes a lot of dryness and brittleness to the hair.

Tips to take care of your skin in winters

Winter brings with it cold weather and an absolute change in your surrounding environment, thereby introducing not just ruddiness to the cheeks of many people, but also itchy dryness to the skin of the feet, hands and face. Some of you may have got even worse winter skin conditions; your skin may have flacked, cracked or even inflamed.

Just as you start a central heat indoor to tackle the chilling temperature, you initiate a process of disrobing moisture from the strands and pores of your skin. This results in dry and itchy skin besides rough hair. However, you have to withstand dry and cracked skin no more: ideas explained below could just be the answer to your winter skin problem.

The first thing you need to do is to consult your dermatologist because if you opt to try an over the counter product, you might be doing a very risky experiment. Most of the over the counter products, medicines and creams might seem the solution for the time being, but they contain elements posing potential risk to your skin and overall health in the long run. So, go see your dermatologist who can assess your condition, study your skin type, troubleshoot your present skin treatment, and offer you skin care tips and advise on products.

As a board certified dermatologist, here I offer you some tips to take care of your skin in winters:

Moisturize your skin – You may already be using a moisturizer that may just be acting fine in summer and spring. However, changes in weather conditions necessitate change in your skin care routine as well. In winter, you should use an oil-based ointment moisturizer, not water-based because the oil in the ointment will form a shielding cover on your skin. This will let the skin hold more moisture in contrast to a lotion or cream. A majority of ointments tagged as night creams are basically oil-based.

Taking shower in warm or lukewarm water – On cold days, you may enjoy a long, hot shower, but this results in more dryness as it strips moisture from your skin. I would recommend you to stick to warm or lukewarm water shower for no longer than 10 minutes.

Use sunscreen – Remember, the use of sunscreen is not limited to just summertime. Winter sun, together with snow glower, can also damage your skin. So, before you go outdoors in winter, don’t forget to put a wide spectrum sunscreen on your face and hands. Consult your dermatologist if you are unsure as to which sunscreen you should use.

Using hat, scarf, socks and gloves – Outdoors in winter can result in windburn and long contact with cold air can damage your skin. Therefore, you should use scarf, gloves, socks and a hat when dressing to go outdoors. However, you should avoid using wet gloves because they can vex your skin and bring prickling, cracking, sores, or even an outbreak of eczema.

Food – Food plays central role in maintaining your skin health, especially in winter. Make sure to eat foots that contain enough healthy monounsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids. Including fish, nuts, olive oil etc. in your diet can help you fight winter skin problems. Foods rich in vitamin C can play important role in revitalizing your skin in winter. Vitamin C plays the role of a catalyst in producing collagen – a protein that upholds the skin. Vitamin C is found abundantly in fruits and green vegetables.

Drinking water – Drinking plenty of water in winter can also play an important role in keeping dryness away.
