There are many ways to achieve a healthy, well-balanced diet.

Recently, a popular vegan blogger known as the Minimalist Baker opened up about her experiences with hair loss. She detailed her digestive struggles with plant-based protein and admitted that she started to incorporate eggs, salmon, and chicken into her diet for her health. The news came as a surprise to her vegan fanbase, many of whom achieve healthy lifestyles on diets that lack both meat and dairy.

The truth is, there are many ways to achieve a healthy, well-balanced diet. Whether you enjoy a vegan lifestyle or meat-based meals, it’s important to incorporate all of the necessary nutrients into your daily life. It’s when the body is starved of certain vitamins, minerals, and proteins that it begins to respond negatively, and our health suffers as a result.

Important Nutrients

According to WebMD, the most important nutrients for the health of your hair include omega-3s, vitamins B6 and B12, folic acid, and protein. While salmon, tuna, and other fatty fish provide the necessary dose of omega-3s, vegans and vegetarians can also receive this nutrient through flaxseed oil, walnuts, and almonds. Bananas and potatoes contain B6, but major sources of B12 often come from animal-based proteins such as beef, poultry, fish, and dairy. Vegans and vegetarians should take a B12 supplement to achieve the necessary dosage. Protein is essential for healthy hair, and there are plenty of ways to incorporate protein into your diet. Fish, chicken, eggs, soy, and beans are all great sources of protein.

Hair Loss Caused by Other Factors

While a person’s diet plays an important role in the health of their hair, their hair loss may be caused by other factors. If you subscribe to a healthy, well-balanced diet and are experiencing hair loss, schedule an appointment with your doctor. It’s possible that your hair loss may be the result of genetics, thyroid disease, hormone issues, or more.
