You know that keeping your hair is healthy is usually about more than just a super shampoo. 

A healthy diet can help your hair look and feel its best. Getting certain nutrients from food will ensure that your hair is strong and shiny.  

Interesting fact: Protein is the building block of hair, because hair is keratinized protein.

  1. Fatty acids, especially omega-3s, play a key role in the beauty of your hair. Consume flaxseed oil, walnuts and almonds. 

  2. Vitamins B6 and B12 are important for your hair. Foods with B6 include bananas, potatoes (both white and sweet), and spinach. Major sources of B12 include beans, seeds, soy milk, and cereal grains. 

  3. Folic acid. You can get folic acid from plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, especially citrus fruits and tomatoes. Whole-grain and fortified-grain products, beans, and lentils also have it.

  4. Protein is also critical for keeping your hair healthy. The average American eats around 75 grams of protein per day, but most women need just 50 grams. You can get it from beans, tofu, quinoa, nuts and seeds. 

 Remember that a balanced diet is a good base for your health and beauty.
