5 foods guaranteed to boost your hair health

Damaged hair can put a serious damper on your day, whether you're relaxing in the sun or prepping for a formal event. Combining the perfect beauty products and food groups is the best way to restore lusciousness to your locks.

To repair dry, frizzy or dull hair, a treatment kit, such as the Steiner Rehab Hair Therapy for Damaged Hair, is best. These products are ideal for restoring health, but there are several foods you can add to your diet that may help keep your hair happy from the inside out. 

1. Oysters
Diets deficient in zinc have been linked to an increase in hair loss, premature graying and thinning. Oysters are a great source of this essential nutrient, and may even be able to help strengthen your skin, nails and eyes, according to Fitness Magazine. 

2. Strawberries
Berries of all sorts are replete with vitamin C, which is one of the most important contributors to healthy hair. Not only does this nutrient strengthen the immune system, but it boosts the production of collagen, which has been linked to greater hair follicle durability. Strawberries are an easy and delicious addition to your diet - consider packing them in your lunch or combining several berries into a tangy morning smoothie.

3. Walnuts
According to The Huffington Post, walnuts - and all legumes for that matter - can help prevent hair loss, as they provide oils to help increase the amount of elastin in the hair. Additionally, this snack is chock full of omega-3 fatty acid, which can help to add shine and protection to your locks.

4. Salmon
Protein is arguably the most important ingredient in fostering hair growth. Since your hair is primarily made up of this essential element, it's vital to consume a diet filled with protein. Salmon not only contains the perfect pinch of protein, but it also gives your body a boost of fatty acids, which are essential for protecting your 'do. As an added bonus, salmon has also been linked to greater memory and reduced risk for developing Alzheimer's later down the line.

5. Sunflower seeds
Much like walnuts, sunflower seeds can help improve your tresses' texture, as they are full of vitamin E. This nutrient may be beneficial for repairing damage done to your hair, such as nourishing dry strands and sealing spilt ends. While they may not pack the same punch as your beauty products, they are a perfect supplement to your beauty regimen.
