Healthy Hair

Eat your shampoo and conditioner! So to speak. Many of the processes you seek out in store-bought products, your body can actually perform itself. You just need the help of foods that promote healthy hair growth by producing protein in the follicles, and natural oil.

Walnuts

Almonds

Hazelnuts

Peanuts

Spinach-the green conditioner, Spinach is full of Vitamins A and C, which help your body’s production of sebum—the oily substance your hair follicles secrete and a natural conditioner.
