Is there any vitamin or a special food which improves our hair's condition?

Calcium and iron deficiencies can affect hair. A normal and balanced diet with effective digestion should suffice for hair. A serum calcium, hemoglobin, and stool test will establish whether or not you have sufficient calcium, iron, and a healthy digestion. Additional liver function tests may also be required in some cases. Overall, a nutritional approach to improving your hair must start with a medical evaluation. Milk is the best source of dietary calcium and dark leafy vegetables such as spinach are the best food sources of iron.

Hair, like every aspect of your looks, is best improved by treating your system well, and a good balanced diet is all that is needed to feed the living, growing part of your hair, hte roots. Protine is essential for hair growth, but you are extremly unlikely to have an insufficient protine intake. Some of the 'B' vitamins are also importent to healthy hair and, providing you have reasonably varied diet, you will also be getting as much of these vitamins as you need. If you want to be quite sure that your diet includes the essintial B vitamin, be certain to include some of these good sources as part of your regular diet as whole cereals, wholemeal bread and flour, wheatgerm, eggs, liver and kidney.
