Smooth shinning hair brings confidence and beauty. That’s why most women strive for the long straight hair look.

Shampoo and conditioning alone will not give your hair the luscious shine. Your diet and hereditary factors plays an important role.

Regardless of the the shampoo or conditioner you use, some of us are just born with naturally beautiful hair. People with a European or Asian heritage is born with finer thinner straighter strands of hair, whereas those from an African descent are born with courser thicker frizzier hair.

“Our genetic disposition is something we can not change, but a well-balanced diet that includes plenty of growth-promoting protein and iron can make a big difference”, says nutrition and hair care expert Dr Revere.

These includes dark vegetables such as spinach or carrots, dried nuts such as walnuts and pumpkin seeds, fruits such as avocado and bananas and fish such as salmon and tuna.
