Eat This… For Healthy Hair

It’s one of the maddening ironies of aging: Hair gets thinner where we want it — on our heads — and starts sprouting up in places we don’t.

Good trimmers and tweezers are all you need for the latter. But for the former? Try these healthy hair foods from Drs. Roizen and Oz (see below) — they can help make your locks look more like they did in your 20s.

Healthy-Hair Diet

Eat more salmon. Omega-3 rich foods like salmon and sardines help seal in shine. Distilled fish oils or DHA supplements will work, too. Need something new to do with salmon? Try this quick and easy Blackened Salmon Sandwich from EatingWell.

Be a bran lover. Bran is rich in vitamin B, which may slow hair loss and promote hair growth. Other B-rich victuals include beans, peas, carrots, cauliflower, soybeans, nuts, and eggs. Make bran-infused pancakes a snap with this Healthy Pancake Mix.

Say yes to avocados. Avocados and avocado oil may prevent some funky stuff that kills hair follicles — dihydrotestosterone (DHT) — from getting where it needs to go. Watch this video for shortcuts on cutting, peeling, and seeding an avocado.

Say no to animal fat — and red meat — if you’re losing hair. They can lead to more DHT production and hair-follicle damage. Make meat-free gravy for your mashers with this delicious Portobello Gravy recipe.

Stock up on green tea. Brew a strong pot, cool it, then give your head a rinse to help kill off dandruff-causing fungus. Incidentally, if you drink green tea, the caffeine in it may help slow balding, too. Try this simple Green Tea-Fruit Smoothie for breakfast — another fabulous EatingWell recipe.

Are years of wigs & weaves taking their toll on Naomi’s hair line?

It looks like years of wear and tear on Naomi Campbell’s hair has finally caught up with her.

During a glamorous photo shoot in New York City on Monday a hairdresser brushed back a portion of Naomi’s weave to reveal a frighteningly large bald spot on the side of the super model’s head. Unfortunately, bald spots and a receding hairline are not uncommon in the modeling world: After years of weaves, blow drying, dying, and styling, some models can lose their hair.

If there’s anyone who can rock a bold bald head, it’s Naomi. She’s certainly got the attitude. Should Naomi just ditch the wigs and give her hair some time to recoup?

Hair Today… Gone Tomorrow.. Solange cuts it all off!!!!


The sister of singer Beyonce has long resented the comparisons to the famous diva. She once playfully said she would ‘go crazy like Britney’ if people kept comparing her to her sister.

And it seems she might finally have Solange wrote on her Twitter page that she was going through a ‘i wanna cut all my Hair off & have a fade (cropped haircut) phase’.
She has in the past typically worn hair extensions or the lace-front wigs – where the wig is glued on – also worn by her sister.

Ironically in the past she has joked that the constant comparisons to her superstar sibling might tip her over the edge and send her into a Britney-style meltdown.
She said: ‘I get asked about Beyonce all the time but I try and make fun of it.
‘Sometimes I say she’s not my sister. Other times I say I’ve stuffed her in my suitcase and sent it to Dubai.

‘I have to have fun with it or I’ll turn into Britney – shave my head and go totally crazy.’
But whatever the reason, she unveiled the edgy new look as she ran errands in LA with her son Juelz, 4.
However, it seems she not too keen to debut the look on the red carpet. As later on she attended a Dita Von Teese

Solange is seen as the more adventurous sister in comparison to pop monolith Beyoncé.
Behind the scenes, she has written hit songs for Destiny’s Child as well as some of her big sister’s biggest hits.

She finally broke into the music scene as a solo artist with Solo Star, an up-tempo R&B record bolstered by the Neptunes, Timbaland and a host of other super-producers.

Solange – who has released her debut single I Decided last year has received mixed reviews for her self-titled debut album Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams in which is a mix of electro pop and retro soul.But she has said Americans think she is ‘nutty’ because of her forthright attitude. She told the Daily Star : ‘I get a lot of wrinkled noses because of how outspoken I am.

‘Probably not in the U.K. because women here tend to be pretty frank and have a dry sense of humour but back home they’re scared of me for some reason and think I’m a little nutty.’
