Four Foods That Are Great For Your Hair

Update Date: Nov 04, 2014 09:21 AM EST

What you eat, not only affects your health and skin but also your hair. A nutritional deficiency can wreak havoc on the tresses. Therefore it's important to follow a healthy, balanced diet that would strengthen your hair follicles and scalp. 

Here are foods that you should consider in your diets for a healthy scalp:

Walnuts

Walnuts are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E and biotin which protect cells from any type of DNA or sun damage. Walnuts also contain copper which ensures that natural hair doesn't fade or grey prematurely. If you don't like the taste of it, you could use walnut oil to cook some of your dishes. 

Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes contain generous amount of antioxidant called beta carotene, which is needed by your body to turn into vitamin A. Sweet potatoes will produce essential oils that keep your scalp healthy and dandruff-free. 

Salmon

Our hair needs vitamin D and protein in order to stay healthy and shiny and salmon is packed with that. Salmon also helps keep your scalp and hair well hydrated. 

Eggs 

Eggs are filled with protein, and other minerals including iron, sulfur, zinc and selenium. Scarcity of iron can be one the reasons for hair loss. Also, iron helps your cells carry oxygen to hair follicles. 

Apart from eggs, fishes and chickens are also rich sources of iron.
