12 Foods That’ll Make Your Hair Shiny

How are those New Year’s resolutions going? It’s only four days into 2010, so hopefully the plans for a better lifestyle are still intact. If part of your new decade includes shaping up your diet (or um, looking hotter), then here’s a list you’ll be interested in. Of course we all know what you put in your mouth does more than simply sate you hunger-wise, but did you know that certain foods may actually make your hair shinier and healthier?
