You can obtain it from liver, chicken, beef, fish, legumes avocados and carrots. The top foods which help to have lustrous, bouncy hair includes salmon, dark green vegetables, beans, nuts, poultry, egg, whole grains and low fat dairy products.

The final step includes how much you take care of your hair. The first and foremost thing is to have clean hair.

These may be best put into use sparingly. Whenever possible allow your hair to dry naturally.

When taking head bath use lukewarm water, and avoid fast movements to dry your hair. Instead blot your hair with a towel and let it dry naturally. Avoid brushing your hair while it is still wet. Brush you hair less it limits hair loss. Avoid excessive styling of hair and extreme hair color changes. Always wear a protective head gear when you venture out in the sun. Moderation is the key. Love your hair and you will be amazed at the results.
