Pumpkin seeds are one of the best foods you can add to your diet if you want healthy hair. Pumpkin seeds contain protein, zinc, selenium, biotin, potassium, copper, iron, B vitamins, vitamin E, magnesium and calcium. They are also high in omega-6 fatty acids that contribute to healthy as well as thick and shiny hair.

You can eat lightly roasted pumpkin seeds as a snack, add a spoonful to salad or soup, or sprinkle some in your bread or other baking recipes for added flavor.

10. Mango

Mangos are rich in vitamins and minerals that nourish as well as promote hair growth. This juicy fruit is rich in vitamin C, an essential for making collagen that gives structure to hair. Vitamin C also helps with absorption of iron in the blood. Iron deficiency disrupts the normal hair growth cycle and may result in hair loss.

Plus, mangos have vitamins A and E. While vitamin A helps fight dandruff, vitamin E improves scalp circulation and encourages hair growth.

You can eat mangos as a whole fruit or drink mango juices or smoothies. Mango slices are also a tasty addition to yogurt.

You can improve the growth, texture, shine and overall health of your hair by eating these flavorful superfoods that can be easily incorporated into your diet.

  1. I used to have so much hair that I couldn’t wrap any pony tail holder around it twice and my hairdressers were always envious. So….I have to disagree that your diet is the most important for healthy strong hair. I have a strictly whole, superfood and organic diet, much better than when I had that thick head of hair not so long ago. I am 41 and went through premature menopause, I also have thyroid issues; so I know that HORMONES are the most important in terms of hair growth and loss. Thyroid, women hormones or the lack of will create havoc on even the best head of hair.. Diet is the second most important! (:
