Love Your...Self: Healthy food to Healthy hair

As much as I feel like i'm repeating myself, i still feel it's so important not to underestimate the relationship between what we eat vs the condition of our hair. In any case i think what we consume is even more important than the products we use in our hair. Losing weight is probably my biggest fear EVER but I'm most definitely not the junk food eater. I keep it real healthy 'n' tasty too!
So.... here are a few vital ingredients in our diets that are very beneficial with regards to hair care. Try taking some on board, i'm sure you"ll be pleased with the results.
