Peas provide an excellent way to get the carbohydrates and potassium that your hair needs to stay vibrant and strong. Although they contain more calories than other green vegetables, these nutrient-filled calories will keep you full and your hair at its healthiest.
Full of lean protein, turkey is an excellent choice for iron, which makes for healthy, strong hair. With less calories and fat than beef, turkey can be eaten more frequently and that means more ways to get solid protein in your diet. Replace bacon with turkey bacon and throw a few turkey burgers on the grill for a lean, mean way to keep your hair strong.
An excellent source of vitamin E, walnuts provide a crunchy and satisfying way to give your hair the oils it needs to stay full of shine and luster.

The walnut mixture will naturally keep the pigmentation in your hair, keeping those pesky grays at bay.
