Spicy Shrimp Omelet

Both eggs and shrimp contain plenty of iron, a mineral that is crucial for healthy hair. Iron carries oxygen to the hair, and an inadequate intake of iron may cause the hair follicles to starve of oxygen. Women who are menstruating (especially if they have heavy periods), women who are pregnant or have just given birth, long-distance runners, and vegans are often deficient in iron.
