There are some major factors that influence your hair—genetics, age, hormones, nutrient deficiencies, and more—but what you eat is one of the few things you can do to control your hair’s behavior.

Almond butter contains a wide variety of nutrients—including protein, healthy fats, and certain vitamins—that have all been linked to hair health.

The benefits of tangerines affect your hair in two big ways: Its vitamin C content makes it easier for your body to absorb iron. The vitamin B12 in tangerines promotes hair growth, reduces hair loss, and slows down the graying process.

Greek yogurt is rich in vitamin B5 (known as pantothenic acid), which helps with blood flow to your scalp and hair growth.

Cinnamon smells like the holiday season and improves circulation, which brings oxygen and nutrients to your hair follicles.

Oats are rich in iron, fiber, zinc, omega-3 fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids, which stimulate hair growth, making it thick and healthy.

Eggs are packed with a B vitamin called biotin, which helps hair grow and strengthens brittle fingernails.

Pistachios have been linked to helping with male pattern baldness, cashews have biotin, and walnuts contain oils that add to the amount of elastin in your hair.

Halibut has plenty of magnesium, as do several other types of fish.

Shiitake mushrooms are rich in copper, as well as seaweed and sesame seeds.

Without sufficient dietary protein, hair essentially goes on strike.

Some people think you need to spend an extensive amount of hours at the hair salon to achieve perfect hair. Little do you know there are ways to take care of your hair with simple products right at home.

Here are some Natural Hair Masks you can create from products in your own kitchen:

Coconut Oil
1/4 Coconut Oil
This mask is really simple and all your need is one ingredient which is obviously the obvious.. coconut oil!
All you need is a quarter of warmed up coconut oil, and apply it to your hair (either wet or dry) and leave it on for an hour.
Make sure you put a shower cap on so the oil doesn’t go all over the place. Once you are done, wash your hair and go on with your regular after shower hair routine.

Avocado Hair Mask
1 Avocado
1 Tablespoon Almond or Olive Oil
1/4 Cup Milk
Blend avocado until you get a puree. The add the milk and the oil you desire with the avocado and mix well. Apply the mix all over your hair and then cover your hair with a shower cap for 15 minutes. Once time is up, rinse out your hair and make sure residue is washed out.

Egg Mask
2 Eggs
2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
First separate the egg yolks from the whites since you only need the yolk for the mask. After you separate, pour the olive oil and whisk with the yolk all together. Then apply the mixture on your hair is damp, it will be easier to apply this to your hair. After, grab a shower cap and let the mixture soak in your hair for 20 minutes. Once time is up, wash your hair with lukewarm or cool water so the eggs don’t cook in your hair. When this mixture washed off, your hair should feel moisturized and soft.

Hope you guys enjoy these natural hair masks. Not only are these natural but they are also easy and will help your hair become soft and shiny.
