Foods such as trout, mackerel, avocado, flaxseeds, walnuts, soybeans, shrimp, cauliflower, beef and brussel sprouts are very good for healthy hair.


Vitamin C


Vitamin C is not only beneficial to get lustrous long hair but also acts as antioxidants which is very good for your body too. The excellent sources are guavas, oranges, sweet potatoes, strawberries, blackcurrants, kiwi fruits, tomatoes, peas, papayas, nuts, squash, sesame seeds, spinach and sea foods.
