Food to Eat for Healthy Hair

8. Shrimp

Shrimp is a great all-around food for healthy hair because it contains protein, B vitamins, zinc, iron, and vitamin D, all of which may promote strong locks. Shrimp also contains a small amount of omega-3 fatty acids, despite being very low fat in general.

EFAs are linked to improved hair growth, while a deficiency in vitamin D3 seems to contribute to hair loss. You may also want to speak to your doctor about taking a D supplement – because this is a nutrient primarily synthesized in response to sun exposure, more and more adults are being found deficient because we spend so much time inside.
