If you are not eating a balanced diet, it will show first in your hair skin and nails. Start by trying a multivitamin. If this doesn't help, add biotin, and an omega-3 fatty acid like flaxseed oil, or fish oil. Stress can also show in your hair, so make sure you are getting rest!

Protein first and foremost. Which equals meat, usually red meat is best. If you are on a vegetarian or vegan diet eat things like peanut butter, eggs (no eggs for vegans) and various kinds of nuts.

Biotin & regular scalp massages with or without coconut oil or jojoba oil work well.
