Healthy hair is all about what you eat. Having a well-balanced diet is of crucial importance as far as the health of the hair is concerned. It is generally observed that hair problems are more commonly seen with individuals who follow an erratic diet. 

A diet which is rich with proteins, minerals and vitamins definitely adds up to the health of the hair. Hair is in fact one of the parameters of body's health. So, if you have got unhealthy hair it is just not about treating it externally but it has to be treated from within by finding out the exact causative factor causing the hair problem. This could be the reason why any form of deficiencies in the nutrients or any hormonal imbalance directly affects the hair.

Remember that your diet should be rich of proteins as well as the minerals and therefore your diet should definitely consist of all these things...

Milk and milk products:
You should make sure to have at least one glass of milk daily. Along with this you should also have at least one of the milk products daily which include paneer, cheese, curds etc...

Have your share of vegetables and fruits daily which should include pear, tomato, papaya, green leafy vegetables.

Mineral-rich food:
As already mentioned above you should have food which are a rich source of minerals especially the iron and the calcium.

Green Tea:
Green tea is a good anti-oxidant and therefore one should have it to get rid of all the toxins in the body. Generally one should have round about 1 to 2 glasses per day and if you are on a weight loss regime then you can have 3 to 4 glasses per day.

Exotic super fruits may come and go but when it comes to vitamin C.Vitamin C is critical for circulation to the scalp and supports the tiny blood vessels that feed the follicles. Too little vitamin C in your diet can lead to hair breakage.

Having soya proteins in the form of milk, flour, roasted form is also really good.

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.

Sweet Potatoes:
Sweet potatoes are a great source of the antioxidant beta carotene, which your body turns into vitamin A. Every cell of the body cannot function without enough A. It also helps protect and produce the oils that sustain your scalp, and being low on vitamin A can even leave you with itchy, irksome dandruff.

A great source of protein, eggs are loaded with four key minerals: zinc, selenium, sulfur, and iron. Iron is especially important, because it helps cells carry oxygen to the hair follicles, and too little iron (anemia) is a major cause of hair loss, particularly in women, 

Make sure to have at least 12 to 14 glasses of water daily and if you cannot consume water then make sure to at least have coconut water daily as it is a rich source of minerals.

Avoid Sugar:
Avoid having foodstuffs which are high on sugar content as well as fat content. Avoid having canned food items, processed food items and refined food items.

If you follow a healthy diet on a regular basis not only your hair but even your body will stay at its best health so make sure to follow the above diet chart to have beautiful hair forever.
