Stronger hair can be yours. For many men and women, stronger and thicker hair can be achieved through simple lifestyle changes. Revising your daily diet to include more superfoods, for example, is one route to stronger hair. For others, a more comprehensive approach that includes surgical or nonsurgical hair loss treatment may also be required.
In this article, we explore the 20 best-known superfoods for stronger hair. We also explore 3 of the most popular surgical and nonsurgical methods of hair restoration—moderate to aggressive treatments for men and women who experience more pronounced thinning, shedding, and balding.
Top 20 Superfoods for Stronger Hair
Whether dining out or cooking at home, look for opportunities to incorporate the following superfoods for stronger hair into your meals. As a rule of thumb, always pair 1 protein with 1 serving of vegetables and 1 serving of fruit. Garnish with seeds and extracts, and always remember to indulge in a delicious treat!
Power Vegies & Lentils
Coconut (meat and oil)
Seeds & extracts
When Superfoods Aren’t Enough
A balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants has been proven to naturally improve the appearance of hair, skin, and nails. For some individuals, however, eating well is not enough. Whether predisposed to hereditary (genetic) hair loss or suffering from stress-induced telogen effluvium, the following treatment options are available to help men and women put an end to excessive thinning and balding.
Minoxidil is a topical hair loss foam that both men and women may use. When applied directly to the scalp, minoxidil has been shown in clinical studies to prevent the progression of hair loss. Patients are cautioned, however, that hair loss will begin again when minoxidil use is discontinued. This treatment is available over-the-counter under the popular brand, Rogaine®.
Laser Hair Restoration
Laser hair restoration is a nonsurgical hair loss treatment that has enjoyed ever-increasing popularity over the past 3 years. Treatment consists of exposure to cool laser light to improve blood circulation and hair follicle health, thus promoting natural hair growth. We are pleased to offer laser hair restoration with the Capillus272™ Pro, a FDA cleared laser cap that can be worn in the comfort of your own home for fast results.
Hair Transplant Surgery
Hair transplant surgery is a third option for men and women who suffer with hair loss. At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we offer two highly refined approaches to hair transplant surgery.
Strip Procedures. A thin linear strip of donor follicles (hair) is removed from the side or rear of the scalp, separated, and carefully transplanted to the thinning/balding area. Using a special closure technique, Miami Hair surgeon, Dr. Paul Rose, expertly redirects existing hairs to grow through and around the extraction area to effectively mask the signs of scarring. Learn more about strip procedures here.
ARTAS® Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). We are pleased to offer procedures with the revolutionary ARTAS® system, a minimally invasive, state-of-the-art technology that uses digital mapping and robotics precision to select and harvest hair for transplantation (FUE).
