Do you know that smoothies packed with nutrition encourage hair growth? Start your morning routine by drinking a smoothie rich in vitamins and minerals that are good for your tresses. A low-sugar smoothie with the right blend of fresh fruits and vegetables can enhance hair in various ways. To infuse nutrients like iron, vitamin C, protein, niacin, zinc, and biotin into your smoothie, include dark leafy greens, berries, nuts like walnuts or almonds, avocados, and flax seeds.

Nutrition experts keep voting for green smoothies with leafy vegetables. According to them, there is a green smoothie for any kind of hair health needs or goals. It can help control hair fall, increase the length, or delay grey hairs. Often, we resort to topical application of hair-based products to solve such issues, but the results are primarily momentary. Unless the body gets the proper nutrition from within, it fails to promote healthy hair growth. 

Apart from green ones, there are a few nutritious smoothies for hair health. These types are best for those who don't like the taste of leafy vegetables. 

Strengthen it with sweet potato 

Sweet potatoes have plenty of vitamins A, B6, C, D, and E. Additionally, it contains magnesium, calcium, potassium, niacin, iron, zinc, and copper. These nutrients are excellent for combating hair loss. Use boiled sweet potatoes. To fortify its effect, add plant-based protein powder; peas can be a good choice. It will give strength to the hair roots. Bananas will infuse nutrition, creamy texture and sweetness. To liquify it, add unsweetened almond milk. Almond also helps cure dandruff issues and lowers any inflammations in the scalp.

Iron and folate are both found in spinach. Particularly, iron aids in the transportation of oxygen by red blood cells. Anaemia or iron shortage can prevent oxygen delivery to cells, and hair loss may result from it. Instead of matured ones, use baby spinach. So start your day with a spinach-rich smoothie along with a few other nutritious ingredients. The ideal choice can include a tablespoon of chia seeds, half a ripe banana, unsweetened almond milk, and vanilla essence. Blend all of them to make a smooth drink.

Fig, banana and almond smoothie

Evidence links low amounts of calcium, iron, and copper to inflammation and early hair ageing. Almonds are a great source of vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids for perfect skin and strong hair. Whip a smoothie by blending almond milk and butter as an ideal dose of the required nutrition. Likewise, one of the elements needed for healthy hair is protein and Vitamin D (to control hair loss). Greek yoghurt is abundant in both these properties. Meanwhile, its pantothenic acid promotes hair development. Collagen protein powder can infuse that extra punch. For natural sweetness, add figs that boost hair growth by improving blood circulation to the scalp. Also, blend in bananas for their great profile of antioxidants that protect tresses from free radical wear and tear. 

Please remember that if you consume only once a week, you won't see a difference immediately. For the best benefits, be consistently and add in an everyday breakfast meal.
