Remember the old adage, “You are what you eat”. Well, it applies to you hair too! Hair health can be an indicator of an insufficient “hair diet”. Since hair is mostly composed of protein, a protein rich diet can help strengthen your hair follicles. Women especially can suffer hair loss due to iron deficiency. While there are many good and necessary vitamins and supplements, nothing compares to old-fashioned common sense when it come to diet and healthy hair. Eating a well-balanced diet and drinking plenty of water assists in promoting healthy, shiny hair.
