Gorgeous Hair Guaranteed: Boost Your Omega 3's and Mixed Nuts

Eat Your Way to Thick and Shiny Tresses

Published October 12, 2011

In a world filled with lace weaves, wigs and extensions wouldn’t it be great to have a healthy head of hair that you can really call your own? It’s not impossible. All it takes is a little discipline when it comes to eating better.

According to Cosmopolitan, there are a few foods that nutritionist Deborah Enos says will produce terrific tresses in no time. Enos suggests beans for iron, zinc and biotin, walnuts and salmon because they're rich in omega-3's, and dark leafy greens for Vitamins A and C.

Enos adds that young women in particular can suffer from hair loss due to stress. That about covers all of us, from stay-at-home mothers to cubicle workaholics — we’re all swamped in hectic lifestyles and busy schedules. Enos has a solution for the on-the-go woman. Grab some mixed nuts loaded with almonds, pecans and cashews, foods which nutritionally produce thick and shiny hair, as well. Whether it’s a three-course meal, or a quick bite on the go, all roads lead to healthier, more vibrant hair.
