Hair is a complex part of the body but is, in very basic terms, a form of protein. There are certain foods that can be great for looking after your hair to make it look thick, full, shiny and naturally gorgeous because of the vitamins that they naturally have or the way in which our bodies process them.

BLUEBERRIES
Blueberries are full of Vitamin C which is essential for helping the body to absorb iron. Iron is a necessity when it comes to hair growth and therefore your hair is more likely to grow faster and better than before if you make sure you get the right amount of vitamin C in your diet.

SALMON
Fish in general is very good for your hair and your skin but salmon is especially good. It contains a lot of the right proteins, oils and helps in the processing of Vitamin D - all of which is important for healthy hair growth in the long term.

GREEK YOGHURT
All of those hair products that boast they contain Vitamin B5? Greek Yoghurt naturally contains B5 which is what the body needs to convert iron into usable energy for the hair follicles. It helps hair to grow longer and stronger.

SWEET POTATOES
Sweet potatoes not only contain anti-oxidants but are also a great source of beta carotene, which the body converts into Vitamin A. Vitamin A then helps to sustain oils on the scalp which can stop itchy scalps and dandruff from occurring.

WALNUTS
Walnuts are full of Vitamin E which your hair needs as it protects against UV rays and pollution damage which, let's face it, nobody ever thinks about when it comes to hair care.
