Women can definitely attest to the fact that hair brings the woman her beauty. Whether you have it long like Rapuzel or rock a short Halle Berry look, the hair is one of the best assets and it should be treated as such. Treatments, conditions and long hours at the salon are not the only means of keeping the hair healthy and vibrant: the longevity also comes with what you eat. According to Elev8.com, there are 10 foods promote healthy hair, also known as the hair diet.
1.) Salmon has the best source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for the scalp. It also contains Vitamin b-12 and iron, which prevents dry scalp.

3.) Carrots: Healthy Hair Blog says that carrots are loaded with nutritious entities, such as beta-carotene, vitamin E and C that offer moisture and proper scalp circulation to keep hair growing strong. Try drinking a carrot shake from time to time to reap these health benefits.

5.) Whole-Grain picks: Whole-wheat breads and cereals contain a significant amount of zinc, iron and vitamin b that help hair repair and growth.
6.) Eggs: The white stuff in the eggs is packed with protein which fortifies and strengthens hair. Eggs yolks contain different vitamins and are high in sulphur. I’ve read that some people actually put egg in their hair (but I guess that’s a personal preference.

8.) Nuts: Almonds, peanuts and cashews not only stimulate hair growth but they also rescue hair from thinning out and breaking down.
9.) Dark green vegetables: Parents always said that greens were good for you, but if I knew as a child that those peas and celery sticks would help my hair grow long and strong, I would have definitely ate more of it. The iron and calcium found in greens help hair growth as well.
10.) Last but not least, beans round out the top 10 for healthy hair. WebMD says that legumes contain (among other nutrients) biotin, which prevents the hair from becoming brittle and unattractive.
