It won’t matter how lustrous your locks are if they keeping falling out! If you’re experiencing a noticeable amount of hair loss, your body may be telling you it has an iron deficiency (and it’s even more likely if you are female). One way to stop excessive shedding in its tracks is to include more iron and protein-rich foods in your diet. Lean beef is one of the best options and can be eaten two to three times a week. This red meat also includes zinc, which has been attributed to hair loss when enough is not consumed. If you can’t eat meat, look to vegetarian alternatives such as tofu, which can also provide your hair with the iron intake it needs.
