Whether you love kidney beans, black beans or pinto beans -- or like them all in a big bowl of chili -- beans are terrific sources of iron, a mineral that’s key to healthy hair. “Nutritional deficiencies of iron can lead to chronic hair shedding,” says Dr. Sadick. Several studies have found a link between iron deficiency and hair loss in both men and women, and many doctors now do blood tests to check iron levels in people who complain to their doctors of hair loss. A well-rounded diet that provides enough iron can help keep your hair thick and healthy. Other great sources of iron: Red meat, poultry, tofu.
