iVillage.com: The Secret to Beautiful Hair? It's in Your Kitchen!

Canola Oil

This common cooking oil is a great source of Vitamin E, a natural antioxidant that can help keep hair strong and flexible by protecting it from the damages of sunlight and other environmental threats that break down the protein bonds of hair and weaken it. “Many vegetable oils are rich in Vitamin E, but canola oil is versatile and easy to use in recipes, and is less expensive and has a longer shelf life than other oils,” says Dubost. One tablespoon of canola oil provides about 2.5 mg of Vitamin E, or about one-fifth of the 12 mg of Vitamin E recommend daily for adults. Other great sources of Vitamin E: Wheat germ, sunflower seeds, pine nuts, roasted almonds, safflower and sunflower oil.
