Finding The Best Healthy Hair Food

Find the best healthy hair food that will make your hair look and feel its best

In addition to doing various hair care treatments, conditioners and other products, it is also important that you consumer the best healthy hair food, as there are certain vitamins and nutrients that will help your hair look its best. One such food is salmon, which is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and protein, both of which support scalp health. Another great healthy hair food is spinach (among other green vegetables), all of which serve as excellent sources of vitamins A and C, which help your body produce sebum, a natural hair conditioner.

Beans, such as lentils and kidney beans, are another healthy hair food that promote hair growth and provide ample supplies of biotin, zinc and iron. If your body is deficient in biotin, your hair will often appear more brittle. The American Dietetic Association recommends consuming as much as three cups of lentils or beans on a weekly basis. Nuts are another excellent healthy hair food because they contain high sources of zinc (not having enough zinc can lead to hair shedding), along with other sources such as selenium (found in Brazil nuts) and alpha-linolenic acid (found in walnuts).
