Does Proper Diet effect Hair?

More and more people are trying to hold onto their hair for as long as possible As a result vitamins aimed at hair loss have been becoming more popular. But do they work? Does (the lack of) proper diet affect hair and can nutrients help? While hair loss is usually more complicated than just poor diet, diet deficiency is definitely one of the major factors of hair loss. Foods rich in Zinc, proteins, Vitamin B, magnesium, antioxidants, and Omega fatty acids are key to keeping the scalp healthy. Of all nutrients, protein is the most important for keratin hair structure and proper growth. Like any other organ, hair needs to be properly taken care of to grow and remain healthy. Many weight loss "starvation" diets are associated side-by-side with hair loss, these diets deprive your body of important nutrients.
