Are there any foods or vitamins that help keep my hair healthy?
Your diet should consist of protein from meats and legumes and foods rich in vitamin A, B and C like carrots, spinach, red peppers and cantaloupe. Foods high in zinc (e.g crab, turkey, eggs, milk and cheese) and selenium (e.g Brazil nuts, canned tuna and most meats) are also recommended.
You can also try Vitamin B (make sure your doctor gives you the okay).
How can I retain length if I keep cutting/trimming my hair?
It is necessary to get rid of the split ends as they will keep splitting until they break off. Cutting or trimming your hair oxygenates your hair, allowing your ends to absorb moisture and stay healthy. If your scalp is healthy, the hair will have no problem growing out of the scalp. It’s the ends that you need to keep healthy in order to retain length. Most people complain of having dry ends — moisturize them more often than the mid shaft and roots, in other words moisturize them as needed.
What products are good for my hair?
- Cleansers with no sulphates and parabens (a class of widely used preservatives)

How often should I shampoo my hair?
It’s depends on your activity level. If you’re very active, shampoo as often as needed with a curl friendly products and co-wash in between cleansing.
