We all want healthy hair but how do we get it? Products that protect and moisturize help, but in some situations the problem can be from within. Here are 10 nutrients needed for luscious locks:
Vitamins A, C and E promote circulation to the scalp. A and C add shine by helping produce sebum, which naturally conditions hair.
2. Essential Fatty Acids
Some fat in your diet helps a dry scalp. Find them in Omega-3-rich fish like salmon and halibut, avocados, flax seeds and walnuts.
High in vitamin B7, produces keratin, which can prevent hair loss and graying. Find it in almonds, bananas, strawberries, egg yolks and liver(for the brave taste testers).
4. Folic Acid
It helps deliver nutrients to the hair root, promoting growth. Find it in asparagus, citrus, peas, and turkey.
This mighty mineral will thicken texture and is found in dark leafy greens and lean protein like turkey.

This mineral keeps hair voluminous and helps prevent hair loss. Find it in red meat, eggs, oysters, and shellfish.
It’s a vital nutrient that promotes hair growth. Milk is fortified with calcium, but natural sources are strawberries, broccoli, okra, collard greens, and spinach.
