Eat these for beautiful hair

Styling products can do only so much when it comes to beautiful hair. To keep your looks looking pretty, you need to nourish your hair from the inside out by eating foods that promote strength and shine. Here are some of them...

Chickpeas. They are not only packed with zinc and folate (nutrients that promote hair health), but chickpeas are a great source of iron-rich protein, an important combination for hair growth and repair.

Skinless Chicken. It is another healthy source of protein, and it's packed with B vitamins (folate, B6 and B12) that maintain healthy hair. These vitamins play a major role in the creation of red blood cells, which carry oxygen and nutrients to all body cells, including those of the scalp, follicles and growing hair. When the body lacks B, the cells can starve, causing shedding, slow growth or weak strands that are prone to breaking.

Lentils. These are especially high in both folate and iron, two powerful nutrients that nourish your locks.

Strawberries. Oranges often get the credit as the best vitamin C source, but did you know that just eight strawberries deliver 100 percent of your daily value? Strawberries are a juicy, delicious source of vitamin C, which is largely responsible for the health of collagen. Hair follicles require collagen for optimal growth.

Peanuts. You may have heard about the benefits of biotin for hair health in a shampoo ad and peanuts are a great source of this mineral.

Kale. Vitamin A is necessary for healthy cell growth and regularly eating kale, a leafy green vegetable, is one of the best ways to pack beta carotene (which is converted into vitamin A) into your diet for healthier locks.
