by Nisha Samson


1. Strawberries

The benefits of this beautiful fruit are many – so many that beauty and health enthusiasts can write an ode to the strawberry. This fruit comes loaded with silica – a component that’s known to prevent baldness and aid hair growth. We warned, though – strawberries are a seasonal fruit and are best eaten from December to March. Also, ensure that you buy strawberries from the supermarket in the mall or the local farmers market. Refrain from making purchases at traffic signals – it seems like an easy buy, but its quality is questionable.

2. Apples

If the apple didn’t manage to keep the doctor away, it will definitely manage to prevent hair loss. Filled with soluble fibre, phenolic compound in apple skin, antioxidants and vitamins, this fruit sings to your body and serenades your hair. So much so that if eaten regularly, it will prevent hair fall and benefit your overall health in many ways. When buying apples, be wary of the amount of wax on them. If the fruit seems too shiny, then it has been waxed excessively. In this case, try and buy another lot. If you’ve already bought the lots, wash the fruit well with a fruit washer that’s available in reputed supermarkets.

3. Grapes

Every knows what a miracle worker grape seed oil is when it comes to preventing hair fall; but do you know that grapes are equally effective? Full of antioxidants, vitamins, natural sugars and a lot more, grapes clean out your system and prevent hair fall. One of the most delicious fruits that are high in water content, these little ovals of joy will do your crowning glory a world of good.

4. Bananas

A banana a day… unlike the good ol’ apple, the banana doesn’t have a tagline that entices you to eat it. However, this potassium-loaded fruit comes packed with vitamin B, magnesium, fibre, pectin and a host of other goodies that do nothing but enhance your overall health. And as if that’s not enough, this sunshine fruits ensures that your strands ofhair maintain their thickness by preventing hair fall. Need another reason? We think not!

5. Oranges

Vitamin C, vitamin C, vitamin C – this fruits practically sings this vitamin. Besides the fabulous C, it’s loaded with antioxidants, flavonoids, beta-carotene, magnesium, fibre and a host of essential vitamins and minerals that are difficult to pronounce.
