When it comes to healthy hair, it’s not only what products you use that count, it’s what you eat that matters too.

Here are five foods that will give you strong, shiny, healthy hair.

Eggs: Source of protein – important for healthy hair.

Walnuts: Source of zinc. A zinc deficiency can lead to hair shedding.

Oysters: Another source of zinc. Also helps maintain the oil glands around the hair follicle.

Salmon: Source of essential omega-3 fatty acids – important for scalp health.

Sweet Potatoes: Contain beta carotene which helps protect and produce the oils that preserve your scalp.
