The proper growth and nutrition of hair has been a great issue of concern these days. The look of the hair can make or ruin your appearance completely. Our hair is made primarily of a special type of protein called keratin. But along with that our hair also needs lots of vitamins and minerals too for proper growth.

The health of your body undoubtedly reflects on the health of your hair. And if you lead a highly unhealthy lifestyle it is bound to have its effects on your hair. So as to keep healthy you need to eat in the proper fashion, have regular exercise, and stay away from all types of drugs. It is no doubt quite complex to describe a healthy diet.
