There is a saying that you are what you eat, and when it comes to your hair, turns out this is quite true!
If you want to have fantastic looking hair that looks well nourished, full and healthy – then you need to look at your diet. So here are some of the best foods to eat if you want to have great hair.

This fish has oodles of protein and vitamin D which both work together to make your hair extremely strong and ready to handle anything. It also contains ‘omega 3 fatty acids’ which are essential for hair growth, and also good for your skin. These natural oils not only help to promote growth but will keep your hair and scalp healthy and hydrated. If you’re not a fan of salmon, then you can try eating sardines, mackerel, trout etc.
Another excellent hair food are walnuts. These tiny brain-like nuts are simply fantastic for hair since they contain biotin, vitamin E and a significant amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids too. The biotin and vitamin E are responsible for preventing hair loss as well protecting it from the damaging rays of the sun. Walnuts also contain a significant amount of copper which helps the hair to maintain its lustrous color.
A third food that is both great for your hair and delicious, are eggs. Eggs are full of protein and minerals such as sulfur, selenium, iron and zinc which work well to strengthen the hair follicles and prevent hair loss. As a matter of fact, you don’t just have to eat eggs to get these benefits, you can actually apply them to your hair. By applying a beaten egg or two to your hair with honey and allowing it to stay for an hour, you will be able to treat your hair. This will give you fuller, more lustrous hair as well as promote rapid hair growth.
Lastly, beans/pulses such as lentils are an excellent hair food. These legumes contain protein, zinc, iron and biotin which are extremely beneficial to hair growth and appearance. You aren’t limited to just eating lentils, but also other beans like soybeans, kidney beans, black eyed peas etc.
