Default Diet for healthy hair


Only oiling, shampooing and conditioning doesn't doesn't make your hair healthy. An overall balanced diet consisting of lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, fatty fish like salmon and low-fat dairy is needed to have hair healthy.

Hair follicles are made of protein. Therefore, it is advisable to eat a diet rich in protein. Have cheese, eggs, almond, beans sprouts, fish, seafood and yogurt.

A diet containing whole grains, including whole-wheat bread and fortified whole-grain breakfast cereals is a great for a hair-healthy dose of zinc, iron, and B vitamins.

Dark green vegetables like spinach and broccoli are excellent sources of iron, vitamins A and C, which your body needs to produce sebum. Sebum is the oily substance, secreted by your hair follicles, which works as body's natural hair conditioner.
