A balanced diet is the source for healthy living. Just like any other part of your body, your hair’s health depends on what you decide to eat. Your damaged hair can easily be the result of a malnutritioned diet. Lisa Dryer, a New York nutritionist explains that the nutrients you eat is what fortifies your hair follicles and the scalp that surrounds it (Healthy foods WebMD). An article in WebMD “Top ten foods for healthy hair” says “If you eat a balanced, varied, protein-rich diet that focuses on [healthy foods], you’ll be giving your hair the TLC it needs and deserves.”
