If you love kiwis, then this article would be perfect for you! We’re going to share with you the top benefits of kiwi for hair that you definitely don’t want to miss.
Like any other fruit, kiwis are known to be packed with nutrients and has a sweet and tart taste to it that makes them so refreshing and tasty. Kiwis can be used in a variety of dishes, from smoothies to muesli toppings. As a result, it’s an excellent addition to anyone’s diet, especially for pregnant women.
According to studies, kiwi is high in folate, a nutrient that is particularly important during pregnancy because it protects babies from neural tube defects. Not only that , kiwi also has “exceptionally high” amounts of vitamin C. It also contains a lot of dietary fibre, potassium, vitamin E, antioxidants, phytonutrients, and more.
Because of all of these vitamins and nutrients, kiwi is a formidable fruit with several health benefits including immune system support, digestive aid, asthma treatment, and even blood pressure management.
However, did you know that kiwi fruit has a number of hair-related benefits? Yes, they do! In this article, we’ll focus on the top kiwi hair benefits, which are particularly beneficial for pregnant women!
3 Benefits of Kiwi for Hair
1. Fights hair loss and promotes hair growth
Vitamins C and E are antioxidants that help in hair loss prevention. These two vitamins also help to reduce hair loss and improve overall health by keeping stress levels (and free radicals) at bay, which is one of the leading causes of hair loss.
Dr. Bashar Bizrah, a hair loss specialist, claims that kiwi contains minerals like zinc, magnesium, and phosphorus, which “help to promote blood circulation in the scalp”. As a result, hair becomes stronger and grows faster.
But first, we need to know what causes hair loss during pregnancy? From hormonal changes to thyroid issues and mineral deficiencies to stress, read all about it here:
2. Prevents premature greying
First and foremost, let us be clear that there is nothing wrong with grey hair. It’s not uncommon to see men and women changing their hair colour to a striking grey these days. Some people, however, who want to maintain their natural hair colour for as long as possible (yes, since grey hair is a part of life, mama), you should consider adding kiwi to your diet.
This is because it’s rich in copper, which is a mineral that helps in the production of melanin. Slower melanin production results in grey or white hair because melanin is responsible for the colour of your hair.
3. Helps treat dandruff
Kiwi is good for treating dandruff because it contains a lot of iron, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids. Zinc not only prevents fungal growth but also eliminates excess skin cells from the scalp, according to Medical News Today. Zinc deficiency is one of the risk factors for dandruff, according to a report published in 2016.
