Brush. Tease. Iron. Flatten. Blow-dry. No matter what you try, your hair just won’t cooperate. It is either too dull or too brittle or just plain unruly. You’ve switched shampoos, done deep conditioning, and even paid a professional to revitalize your locks, but absolutely nothing works! The answer to your hair issues may not be in the products you pick up at the salon, but in the diet you maintain.
When it comes to maintaining a healthy head of hair, your body needs essential vitamins and nutrients to ensure that your scalp and hair follicles are receiving everything they need. The most essential vitamins include vitamins A and C, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and zinc. But instead of purchasing individual vitamins, there are plenty of delicious foods you can eat in your day-to-day routine to help you achieve healthier hair.
