The health of your hair is a reflection of how you care for yourself — be it grooming, hair cuts and your diet. If you want to grow your hair, take a look at what you're eating (or not eating) and see if you can make some adjustments. Your hair — and body — will thank you.

For the ultimate in hair health, here are 16 key foods to add to your diet:

Sweet Potatoes - Sweet potatoes contain vitamin A and beta-carotene, which promotes the health of your scalp and hair. In particular, beta-carotene stimulates your scalp to produce sebum at the base of your hair follicles, which helps hair grow shiny and soft.
