Dark green vegetables: Are an excellent source of vitamins A and C, substances which we need in order to avoid experiencing a dry and itchy scalp. Regularly eat Spinach or broccoli to maintain a healthy scalp.

Beans: Beans are a fantastic source of vitamin B, regularly eating foods which are rich in this vitamin ensures that your hair does not split or break. You will find vitamin B in foods such as green peas, kidney beans, lentils and soybeans.

Sunflower seeds: A tablespoon full of sunflower seeds provides your body with the right amount of vitamin E needed to increase the blood flow to your scalp. As a result, your hair will be encouraged to grow just that little bit quicker!

Fresh nuts & vegetable oils: These supply us with essential fatty acids which aids hair that is dry and brittle. If your hair is prone to splitting, fatty acids help improve the texture of your hair leaving it less likely to break and fall out.

Beef: Having a portion of lean beef once a week can do wonders for your hair; it's one of the best sources of protein out there and can enhance your hairs strength dramatically.

Water: We know sometimes it can be difficult to stick to the 8 to 10 glass a day recommendation but drinking water is absolutely necessary when it comes to maintaining a great head of hair. Drinking water washes away pollutants and any other toxins from our bodies which will leave hair shiny, supple and stronger!
