Eat Chocolate To Prevent Gray Hair

Update Date: Oct 25, 2013 10:30 AM EDT

Eating chocolate may rejuvenate hair more than conditioners and treatments, a new study reveals. Scientists explain that the sweet treat contains a pigment called melanin which can help prevent grays and gives hair its color.

Limp and thin hair is a sign of lack of iron and eating some extra protein can actually help it.

“Poor diet can cause hair thinning and hair loss as well as lacklustre hair, dryness and excess sebum. A high-stress lifestyle and bad nutrition can be catalysts for damage which may need four years to recover,” said Ricardo Vila Nova, resident trichologist at Urban Retreat in Harrods according to Daily Mail.

According to experts iron is the top strength booster. It is the only mineral that carries the blood’s supply of oxygen around the entire body which subsequently also keeps the hair strong and nourished.

Red meat which is found in portions of beef or lamb, is the most recommended source of iron. In case if someone happens to be a vegetarian, Lentils and tofu are also good alternatives.

Chocolates with dark variety carry the pigment called melanin. The pigment also forms the color in the hair as well as skin. It also keeps the tresses vibrant.

For a softer hair, salmon also helps up to an extent as the Omega–3 and 6 as it contains boost scalp health. It is also a known fact that essential fatty acids help in keeping the scalp moisturised. Experts suggested that lily fish such as tuna, salmon and mackerel should be taken once or twice in meal as they contain adequate amount of fatty acids.

Walnuts and avocados also help boost hair shine.
