Lack of proper nutrition puts one's hair at risk of becoming dry, brittle, weak, and even falling out. A well-balanced diet is the best way to keep your hair healthy and strong. Be sure to get proper protein as well as hair-supportive vitamins and minerals (B complex, C, E, and zinc). A well-balanced diet consists of a lot of fruits and vegetables, and proteins and carbohydrates from nuts, grains and legumes. Consume foods high in biotin, which is essential for healthy hair. Good food sources of biotin include brewer's yeast, brown rice, green peas, lentils, oats, soybeans, and sunflower seeds. Oils from fish (salmon), flaxseed, grapeseed, primrose, soybean, sesame, and unsaturated nuts and vegetable oils are the only sources of hair enriching, essential fatty acids (Omega 3 and 6). They should be consumed in pure liquid or supplement form and not heated, cooked, or processed since heat destroys the essential fatty acids. Other supplements that are helpful are the following:

Ultra Hair from Natures Plus -- contains nutrients necessary to stimulate hair growth. If the condition is not severe, this complex alone can used to correct hair stress.

HSN (Hair, Skin, & Nails) Herbal Formula by Nature's Sunshine Products -- improves quality, texture, and growth of hair.
