Ladies, this one’s going to be tough, but for truly healthy hair, there are many things to avoid when drying and styling your hair.

Dry your hair naturally.
Never style your wet hair.
Avoid strong chemicals, hair dyes, bleaches and styling gels.
Avoid using curling irons, straighteners and hair dryers.


Your hair needs nutrients in order to be healthy. The following nutrients and the associated foods will help you to have a healthy body, mind and hair.

Protein: the building block of hair – Include poultry, lean beef, fish, beans and nuts.
Iron: too little can cause baldness – Include turkey, egg yolks, liver, whole grains, dried fruit and beans. Kidney beans are a great source of iron rich proteins.
Vitamin B7 (Biotin): promotes hair growth and scalp health – Include eggs, peanuts, almonds, wheat bran, salmon, low-fat cheese and avocados.
Silica: improves the thickness of hair – Include bananas, beer (in moderation), oats and raisins.
Vitamin A: produces sebum – a scalp oil – that naturally conditions your hair – Include liver, paprika, red pepper, cayenne, chili powder, spinach, broccoli, Swiss chard and other dark green veggies.
Vitamin C: helps your body absorb iron, too little vitamin C and your hair will become dry and brittle. Include broccoli, leafy greens, green peppers, citrus fruits and strawberries.
Zinc: regulates the production of androgens. Low levels of androgens are associated with hair loss. Include oysters, clams, liver, lean beef and wheat germ.
Beta-Carotene: converts to vitamin A and nourishes your hair. Include sweet potatoes, carrots, kale, butternut squash, asparagus and pumpkin.
Omega-3 fatty acids: supports scalp health. Include salmon, sardines, herring, mackerel, flaxseeds and walnuts.
Oils: A diet too low in fats will cause your hair to become lackluster. To restore shine, include healthy oils such as peanut, olive, safflower or sunflower.

Boil a few hibiscus flowers in coconut oil. Filter and use this hair oil to control hair loss and thinning.
Massage the scalp with pure coconut oil at least once a week.
