How to eat your way to healthy hair (yes, it's possible!)
Who would've guessed that you could eat your way to beautiful, vibrant hair? It's so simple!

All you've got to do is incorporate a number of hair-enhancing foods into your daily meals, and in to time you'll have your healthiest locks ever.

You see, the foods you munch on have a direct effect on everything from your hair follicles to your scalp, which lie at the root of great hair. A balanced, varied diet that's rich in beta-carotene, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, folate and biotin is key!

Below are five of the most nutritious foods you can add to your diet for smooth, silky, super-healthy hair. Just bear in mind that your locks take time to change, so you're likely to only start noticing results in about three months.

Five foods to eat for healthy hair

#1: Lentils
Rich in iron, zinc and biotin, lentil are little nutritional powerhouses that will work wonders for your locks. The biotin in specific helps promotes cell growth, which will help fight off brittle hair and hair loss.
 
#2: Walnuts
Also rich in biotin, also well as essential fatty acids, walnuts are great for snacking on to get healthy hair. If you don’t get enough biotin, you’re likely to suffer from weak hair that’s prone to falling out. Adding more of it to your diet, on the other hand, promotes stronger strands.
 
#3: Sweet potatoes
Chock-full of the beneficial carotenoid beta-carotene, which turns into vitamin A in your body, sweet potatoes nourish cell function and help produce scalp oils that lead to healthy and more vibrant hair.
 
#4: Leafy greens
Leafy green vegetables such as kale and spinach packs lots of beta-carotene, vitamin C and folate, all of which keep your scalp oils circulating and your hair follicles superbly nourished. FOlate in particular is essential for cell renewal, which promotes hair growth.
 
#5: Fatty fish
Fatty fish including salmon, tuna and mackerel are super-rich in omega-3 essential fatty acids. Omega-3s are necessary for hair shaft growth, which also keep your scalp oils hydrated. Fatty fish are also high in protein, which is the building block of your cells and thus your hair health.
