Here are some of the foods mentioned in the article:
(1) Eat more Omega 3 fatty acids to make your hair shine – You can get omega 3 from fish, nuts, or flax seeds. If you choose to eat flax seeds make sure you grind them up first or else you won’t be able to digest them. Omega 3 fatty acids also come in pill form (aka fish oil), although I personally think it is always better to get nutrients from their natural source whenever possible.
(2) Vitamin B -- B complex vitamins can be found in foods like potatoes, bananas, milk, meat, eggs, cheese, & peas. B vitamins are believed to encourage cell growth, including hair growth!
(3) Avocado - One of my personal favorites! Check out my recent posting on an avocado smoothie, or eat avocados in your low calorie sandwiches, low calorie quesadillas, or guacamole.
(4) Stay away from animal fat if you think you are losing hair -- It is believed that animal fat may promote hair damage. Worth keeping an eye on if you are concerned about your hair health.
(5) Make sure you are getting enough iron - Foods like chicken, eggs, nuts, and dark green vegetables contain iron. By the way, iron levels can be depleted by tea and coffee. An iron deficiency could lead to hair thinning.
(6) Eat healthy proteins -- hair is made out of protein! The article mentions that fish is a great choice, but definitely eat all the proteins you like, including tofu, nuts, beans, lean meats, eggs, and dairy.
The article also has two great tips in it: (1) Wash your hair with diluted apple cider vinegar (I'm going to try this over the weekend -- the vinegar supposedly helps wash away some of the residual crud that makes our hair dirty) and (2) be aware that certain kinds of dieting (like losing pounds quickly) can affect your hair health.
