For today, I came across a post on healthy hair and found it to be informative and interesting. It lists the top 12 snacks for super hair. I don't know why, but cheesecake, chocolate cake, nor ice cream seem to have made this list. HaHaHa I knew about some of these, but not all. So, I wanted to pass along this information to you and hope it's beneficial.
I buy fruit and nuts all of the time, but 5 out of 12 of these items are hardly ever on my grocery list. What about you? Do you eat a lot of what's listed here? Looks like I need to incorporate more of the following into my diet and I guess chocolate bars with almonds don't count huh? LOL You guys have a great day!
What's advice do you give others for healthy hair?
