Good foods for scalp and hair

Healthy food that are good for the hair.

1) Foods rich in protein
*beans, fish, milk, eggs, meat (with no fat) and more

Hair is coated by a protein called keratin, and keratin serves the function of regenerating and repairing the damaged hair tissues. When there is lack of protein in our diet, our body turns the hair in growth phase to resting phase, in order to reserve protein. Therefore, protein intake is required for maintenance of shiny and healthy hair.

Vitamins make your slim healthy and prevent dandruffs and hair loss.
