Biotin(benefit to hair- protects cells from DNA -good due to the fact that your hair isn't protected from the sun...too little biotin can lead to hair loss) – Walnuts, Walnut-oil, lentils

Omega-3 fatty acids(benefit to hair – 1)rich in Vita-D & protein for strong hair

2) Omega-3s are also found in cell membranes in the skin of your scalp, and in the natural oils that keep your scalp and hair hydrated.) – Salmon, walnuts, avocado, flaxseed
Vitamin B-3 or Niacin - Niacin improves circulation to the scalp and for this reason may have a positive effect on hair growth. Studies have found that niacin works better when combined with biotin.
Vitamin B-5 or Pantothenic acid – slows and prevents graying and hairloss
Vitamin B-6 – (benefit to hair - B-6 reduces the sensitivity of hair and skin to the effects of testosterone, which plays roles in male-pattern baldness and skin conditions, such as acne. In addition, B-6 is required for the synthesis of RNA and DNA that contain the instructions for the reproduction and growth of all cells and tissue, including hair. Further, it is needed to form proteins -- the primary constituent of hair.) - flax seeds
Vitamin B-8 or isonitol – Will help with strengthening hair follicles
Vitamin B-9 or folate – (benefit to hair - A deficiency of folate may result in hair loss) – flax seeds, spinach

Note about honey in oatmeal - When honey is mixed with water, a chemical reaction takes place resulting in the creation of hydrogen peroxide, a natural antibiotic so I am assuming honey in oatmeal+water has some hydrogen peroxide.
Vitamin B-12 or cobalamin - Vitamin B12 is one of the most important vitamins for our hair and a deficiency can result in hair loss and premature graying. A surprising number of people are deficient in B12. Including enough vitamin C and iron in your diet will help you body absorb more B12.

Vitamin E (benefit to hair- protects cells from DNA -good due to the fact that your hair isn't protected from the sun) – Walnuts, Walnut-oil
Zinc (benefit to hair - a lack of zinc can lead to hair loss (even in your eyelashes), as well as a dry, flaky scalp) – Oysters, beef, eggs, lentils

Antioxident Beta Carotene – body turns BC into vita-A and quote “every cell of the body cannot function without enough A” (benefit to hair - helps protect and produce the oils that sustain your scalp, and being low on vitamin A can even leave you with itchy, irksome dandruff.) - Carrots, cantelope, mangos, apricots
Iron – (benefit to hair - it helps cells carry oxygen to the hair follicles, and too little iron (anemia) is a major cause of hair loss) – Eggs, chicken, beef, pork, lentils
The iron, beta carotene, folate, and vitamin C in spinach help keep hair follicles healthy and scalp oils circulating. - Spinach
Protein – (benefit to hair – 1) greek yogurt is high in hair-friendly protein 2) Because hair is nearly all protein, "foods rich in protein are literally giving you the building blocks for hair," ) - lentils, eggs, salmon, walnut-oil, walnuts, chicken, lean beef, pork, greek yogurt
Vitamin D – (benefit to hair - Emerging research links vitamin D and hair follicle health, but exactly how that works isn't clear ) - greek yogurt, skim milk
Vitamin C - (benefit to hair - C is critical for circulation to the scalp and supports the tiny blood vessels that feed the follicles. Too little C in your diet can lead to hair breakage. ) - , strawberries, pomegranates, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, blueberries, raspberries
Vitamin A - A vitamin A deficiency can lead to dry hair which can contribute to hair loss. Vitamin A stimulates the hair follicles and helps the scalp to produce sebum, which keeps the scalp and hair hydrated. The body turns Beta Carotene into vita-A
MSM Methylsulfonylmethane or MSM is a nutrient that is crucial for the health of the hair. Because a lot of people are deficient, many experts recommend taking an MSM supplement for healthy hair and skin.

Wow, what a fantastic collection of information! I'm really into getting vitamins and minerals through a healthy diet too. Maybe you will get to this in a separate post about Iron, but the first post doesn't list dark leafy greens. Spinach is okay for iron, but kale and collards, whoo! And nettles? Oh baby.

If the articles section worked I'd say this should go in it.

Post for Vitamin #8 – foods rich in Vitamin B-12 – Benefit to hair - Vitamin B12 is one of the most important vitamins for our hair and a deficiency can result in hair loss and premature graying. A surprising number of people are deficient in B12. Including enough vitamin C and iron in your diet will help you body absorb more B12. Vitamin B12 can be consumed in large doses because excess is excreted by the body or stored in the liver for use when supplies are scarce. Stores of B12 can last for up to a year. Recommended Daily Value of B-12 is 6 micrograms.

100g Clam = 98.9 μgrams Vitamin B-12
100g Mussels = 36 μgrams Vitamin B-12
100g Oysters = 24 μgrams Vitamin B-12
100g Lamb liver = 85.7 micrograms Vitamin B-12

100g Malt-O-Meal High Fiber Bran Flakes = 28 micrograms Vitamin B-12
100g Kelloggs All-Bran With Extra Fiber = 24 micrograms Vitamin B-12
100g Kelloggs Complete Oat Bran Flakes = 20 micrograms Vitamin B-12
100g Kelloggs Special K = 20 micrograms Vitamin B-12(100g is 1-2 cups so a bowl of Special K gives you probably 2-3x the recommended Daily Value of Vitamin B-12...This is my 2nd favorite cereal)
100g New England Clam Chowder = 4.8 micrograms Vitamin B-12

I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this thread. I have to take a number of vitamin supplements already, so I'm trying to get my hair vitamins through eating better, rather than taking supplements. This is a great store of information to draw from!

Just a note: I found out all this information just by searching google and combining info from multiple sources...so not all these foods are tremendously healthy(cheese, liver) a lot of them are though. If you are going to try some of these foods you may want to research them before eating them in excess, because they may not all be good in excess. I haven't researched ALL of these foods thoroughly....I am just posting the amount of each vitamin in a certain amount of each food and some of the hair health advantages of each vitamin. I will post more vitamin soon, if anyone else wants to post another hair health vitamin...go ahead:)

Post for Vitamin #8 – foods rich in Vitamin E – Benefit to hair - (benefit to hair- protects cells from DNA damage; good due to the fact that your hair isn't protected from the sun)
The exact mechanism is not known but vitamin E may prevent hair loss by the same mechanism that it prevents heart problems. Vitamin E helps with the growth of capillaries. When there are more capillaries, the circulation improves and it is thought that the improved circulation to the scalp is the trigger for preventing hair loss.

Vitamin E Grows Hair
Because it causes capillary growth, vitamin E can help hair to grow. The increased circulation speeds the growth of hair in many people. The additional nutrition can prevent split ends, help heal hair damaged by excessive use of a hair dryer, and cure dry hair as well.

Vitamin E Heals Dry Hair
Vitamin E can be used as a leave-on conditioner for dry and damaged hair. A small amount daily will treat dry hair and heal the hair shafts. It is always better to add nutrition to the diet, but for those with very dry hair and scalp, adding a small amount of vitamin E to the hair after shampooing will remedy dry hair, if not treat the cause. To treat the cause, the vitamins need to be taken internally. To make a healing mask of vitamin E, cut open a number of capsules with a small scissors and blend into the hair. Completely cover the ends of the hair, so it feels oily. Leave on for an hour or longer, and then shampoo out for silky, manageable hair. … Interesting, I'll have to try this to see if it works..

Walnuts...??

100g Sunflower Seeds = 36.6 mg Vitamin E
100g Paprika = 30 mg Vitamin E
100g Almonds = 26.2 mg Vitamin E

Post for Vitamin #11 – foods rich in Iron - (benefit to hair - it helps cells carry oxygen to the hair follicles, and too little iron (anemia) is a major cause of hair loss) – Eggs, chicken, beef, pork, lentils
The IRON, beta carotene, folate, and vitamin C in spinach help keep hair follicles healthy and scalp oils circulating.

Iron is an essential mineral used to transport oxygen to all parts of the body. A slight deficiency in iron causes anemia (fatigue/weakness), and a chronic deficiency can lead to organ failure. Conversely, too much iron leads to production of harmful free radicals, and interferes with metabolism, causing damage to organs like the heart and liver. The body is able to regulate uptake of iron, so overdose is rare and usually only occurs when people take supplements.

100g clams = 28mg Iron
100g Liver = 23mg Iron
100g Squash and Pumpkin Seeds = 15mg Iron
100g Cashews = 6.05mg Iron
100g Peanuts = 4.58 mg Iron
100g Hazelnuts = 4.38mg Iron
100g Beef(Lean Tenderloin) = 3.7mg Iron
100g White Beans = 3.7 mg Iron
100g Raw Lentils = 7.54 mg Iron
100g Cooked Lentils = 3.1 mg Iron
100g Cooked Quinoa = 1.49 mg Iron
100g Cooked Spinach = 3.6 mg Iron
100g Unsweetened Baking Chocolate = 17 mg Iron
