Never heard of that but be careful with almonds. do not overeat them, it can be dangerous.
for shiny hair regular intake of some vitamins helps, as well as usage of special oils which u put into ur hair, for example I love olive oil from Morocco.
If that's true, can we find some information whether the almonds can just make our hair shine and glow, or it can even grow hairs and help people recover their thinning hair? I am one of them. My hair line is going up!
