    Who doesn't want healthy hair? We all want to have hair that's shiny, bouncy and lustrous. The most effective way to get healthy hair is to have a healthy diet. Beautiful hair just needs proper nutrition and care. Here are foods you should include in your diet

    Almonds

    According to Dr Jharna Wadia, a nutritionist, almonds contain a generous amount of vitamin E, iron and magnesium which are beneficial to the hair. "Iron promotes protein retention. Since our hair is approximately 90 per cent protein, these essential nutrients are beneficial in the process of hair growth," she explains. Eat 2-3 almonds every day.

    Fruits

    "Fruits such as oranges, kiwis and melons contain vitamin C, which prevents hair loss and promotes re-growth," says Dr Wadia. Have at least five servings of fruit in a day to stop your hair from falling.

    Oily fish

    Seafood, especially oily fish such as salmon, mackerel and sardines, contains a high concentration of omega-3 fats. These are responsible for keeping the hair follicles, cells and tissues strong.

    Dark green vegetables

    Dark green vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, beans and green peppers contain vitamins and other essential nutrients that makes your hair healthy. "Vitamin A helps in the production of healthy sebum in the scalp, thus keeping the hair bouncy and lustrous. Vitamin E is also an essential nutrient for maintaining healthy tissues and cells of the body," adds Dr Wadia.

    Eggs

    Eggs contain vitamins B6 and B12. These nutrients produce melanin that gives hair its natural color making it shinier. Melanin protects the hair from any external damage too.

    Add these foods to your diet and you'll have healthy, bouncy, happy hair very soon!

    Cheers,
    Sujatha Hari
