Celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar shared these tips on social media recently
Monsoon is that time of the year when we crave chatpata munchies with our sham ki chai. Desi favourites like bhajiya and bhutta are popular among all age groups, but gorging on too much of these snacks may sometimes trigger health issues. Problems related to our skin and hair are also common during the rainy season. Humidity during monsoon tends to make our scalp oilier than usual, resulting in dandruff, dull hair, and hair fall. Thus, health experts often recommend people to follow a proper hair-care regime during this time of the year. Our diet plays a major role in maintaining hair health. Keeping this in mind, nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar has shared a few tips on Instagram. According to her, adding these three ingredients to our meals may help prevent hair loss.
The good old fenugreek seeds are more than just a yummy addition to your meals. Methi comes with several health benefits, reducing hair fall being one of them. Rujuta recommends adding methi dana to warm coconut oil. And after it cools down, simply massage it on your scalp and leave it overnight. Besides that, you can also add fenugreek to kadhi and have it with khichdi for dinner. Your everyday tadka in vegetables can also include fenugreek seeds.
Also known as ‘garden cress’ and ‘halim’, aliv seeds are packed with calcium, nutrients, iron, dietary fibre, and various vitamins like A, C, and E. These seeds are known to promote hair growth. You can simply soak these seeds in water and have them with milk at night right before sleeping. Rujuta suggests rolling these rich seeds into laddoos with coconut and ghee for even better results.
Known to be a wonder spice, nutmeg not only makes your hair stronger, but also prevents hair fall, promotes hair growth and adds extra volume to them. A small pinch of nutmeg powder to milk, consumed at night, can go a long way. You can also add it along with aliv seeds. Nutmeg comes with Vitamin B6, folic acid, and magnesium, which help prevent hair loss, according to Rujuta.
