Zinc has been touted as an essential mineral for maintaining strong, healthy hair because it builds hair protein and is responsible for cell production, ultimately helping to prevent hair loss. It is also helpful in maintaining oil levels in the scalp.
Zinc works in conjunction with vitamin A, so stock up on foods heavy in both-like spinach, peas, and crabmeat-for stronger, shinier strands.
