Question 11 of 20 Correct

What are the best foods to eat for healthy, younger-looking hair?

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

B vitamins found in beans and whole grains (especially B6 and folic acid) ensure a good supply of blood and oxygen to your hair follicles, encouraging growth and maybe slowing loss.

Brightly colored fruits are rich in vitamin C, essential for making collagen, which gives structure to hair.
