Following are the 5 best foods for hair that you should consume daily.

Eggs: Eggs are not only rich sources of protein which help in the formation of keratin but also contain a special vitamin called biotin. This improves hair growth by renewing hair follicles, so that you get thicker hair. In fact, lack of biotin can cause the hair to become dry and frizzy, which in turn causes increased hair fall. Eggs also nourish the scalp by keeping it naturally moisturized.

Green leafy vegetables: Dark green vegetables like broccoli and spinach contain vitamins A and C, which secrete natural scalp oil. This works as a hair conditioner, providing essential oils that are important for hair growth and renewal. It is these natural oils that male our hair shiny.

Strawberries: Fruits like strawberries that are rich in vitamin C help absorb iron, which is necessary for strong and healthy hair. Eating just a few strawberries a day will help you get naturally beautiful strands of hair.

Walnuts: These are the only type of nut that have a significant amount of omega-3 fatty acids. They’re also rich in biotin and vitamin E, which helps protect your cells from DNA damage. Too little biotin can lead to hair loss. Walnuts also have copper, a mineral that helps keep your natural hair color rich and lustrous.

Yogurt: Yogurt has anti-fungal properties that help fight dandruff. You can either directly apply it on your scalp or increase its intake as yoghurt’s cooling and soothing properties removes the dryness from your skin and hair, rejuvenating it from within.
