3Pumpkin seeds and other seeds –

Besides containing fiber and several other key nutrients, pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc and sesame seeds are rich in calcium. Both elements are crucial for hair growth. In fact, hair fall is one of the symptoms of zinc and calcium deficiency. It’s best to consume sesame seeds which have been soaked in water overnight.

One tablespoon a day of each should suffice. However, those going through a heavy menstrual cycle should avoid ingesting sesame seeds as it increases the flow. Flax seeds and Halim seeds are also regarded as good home remedies for healthy hair. If you can get your hands on chia seeds (not to be confused with khus khus, then even better).
