You may go in for many short treatments using beauty products, with special creams and conditioners, but your hair will remain long if you follow a special diet.

Here is a diet that can help you prevent hair loss. This diet actually involves intake of some foods rich in vitamins, proteins, and minerals that strengthen your hair, especially the scalp. If you eat these types of foods regularly, you will notice considerable reduction in hair fall while combing the hair or when you wake up in the morning.
