Your Healthy Hair in the Kitchen

Once in a while, we encounter hair loss which can be frustrating. Hair loss can be attributed to the lack of vitamins or physical stress on the hair. It may also result from damage that can be caused by heat, sun, cold or overload of chemicals.

You love avocado on your spreads, salads and generally food. This fruit is high in vitamins B and E. These vitamins are good for your hair.
