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:

1. Antioxidants

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.

3. Biotin

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.

5. Iron

This mighty mineral will thicken texture and is found in dark leafy greens and lean protein like turkey.

6. Protein

An essential building block for adding body and luster to our hair. Other than meat, eat raw nuts.

7. Selenium

Keep dandruff away with this mineral- it prevents buildup on the scalp. To get it, eat meats, fish, and broccoli.

8. Zinc

This mineral keeps hair voluminous and helps prevent hair loss. Find it in red meat, eggs, oysters, and shellfish.

9. Calcium

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.

10. Water

If you don’t drink water, you can forget about having nice hair. It keeps locks hydrated from the inside out, thus giving you smooth locks! Drink up.
