Foods That Promote Super Shiny Hair

When it comes to maintaining healthy shiny hair, there are a few things you can do. Schedule a haircut every six to eight weeks to trim away split ends. Use high-quality hair care products that are formulated for your hair type. And last but not least, eat a healthy diet. That’s right. What you eat has a big impact on the health of your tresses. The secret to super shiny strands just might be on your dinner plate. Here are some foods that will help ensure a sleek, strong mane.


Fish such as mackerel and salmon provide protein, the building blocks for hair, as well as omega 3 and 6 fatty acids that strengthen the hair follicles and promote shiny hair.


Eggs are rich in biotin and protein. Biotin is a key component in the production of keratin. Your hair is made mostly of keratin so this nutrient is essential to luminous strands.

Lean Meats & Poultry

Red meats are thought of as diet don’ts, but a couple of servings of lean meat or poultry per week provide excellent protein as well as other essential vitamins and minerals needed for lustrous locks. 


Lentils and other pulses are a vegetarian’s choice for protein, iron, and folic acid to support healthy hair growth. Be sure to include seeds and nuts in your diet to get your omegas as well to boost your shine.


Yes, green leafy vegetables are actually good for your hair. They provide vitamins A and C, folic acid, and zinc as well as natural collagen and other hair nourishing nutrients.

Fresh Fruits and Veggies

There are a variety of fruits and veggies that provide vitamins and minerals necessary for healthy hair growth. So be sure to get the recommended 5-9 servings per day, and try to choose various colors to make sure you’re taking in a wide range of nutrients.
