In Chef Sanjeev Kapoor’s words, people who have dry hair must eat foods that are warm, moist, oily, smooth and nourishing. To make it less complicated, eat lots and lots of fruits and dairy products!
Heavy foods in terms of digestion and too spicy foods are not for you if your hair is dry. Beans can also be avoided. Use spices like cardamom, cumin and ginger daily in your food.
BYE BYE OILY HAIR
Oily hair is the result of too much heat in the body. There’s a simple rule : stay away from oil. Additionally, you should avoid spicy foods like Mexican or Chinese. Also avoid acidic foods like citrus fruits and vinegar. Sour and fried foods are not for you.
