Everyone knows that a proper diet is vital to maintaining a healthy body, but did you know that it can also help you achieve strong, shiny hair? When a person fails to consume necessary nutrients in his or her diet, their hair pays the price. A poor diet can lead to dry locks that split and break easily. At the same time, improving your hair can be as simple as changing how you eat. For example, the key to shiny hair is to consume enough healthy, unsaturated fats.

If you find yourself losing hair at a young age, you may be suffering from an iron deficiency. This too can be resolved with a simple diet change, which involves eating more eggs, beans, red meat, and fortified cereal. Perhaps the easiest diet change to make, though, is simply making sure you get enough water. A well-hydrated body will help you achieve moist, healthy hair.
