Natural Foods to Make Your Hair Grow Faster
I would have added (delicious foods) in the post title because these foods are delicious!
One of the strongest food that makes it easier for your hair to grow naturally, is the Salmon Fish! This fish is loaded with strong hair supporters like vitamin D and protein.
Salmon fishes contain omega-3 fatty acids, and the major workload of the Omega 3 fatty acids, is to promote hair growth by keeping your scalp healthy. It’s a win-win case.
Eating yellow pepper raw is a nightmare, but using it to make meals is a pleasure! and it comes with one of the best aroma ever. The Yellow bell peppers have nearly five and a half times more vitamin C than oranges (341 milligrams, as opposed to 63).
This is very good news for your locks—vitamin C is an antioxidant that strengthens the hair shaft and hair follicles, as well as prevents breakage.
Eggs, who doesn’t like eggs? Eggs are an excellent source of the above-mentioned omega-3s. Eggs contain biotin (which many people trying to grow their hair take in supplement form) and it works efficiently in helping your hair grow faster.
It’s not the full egg that contains Omega 3s. No, it is not the “healthier” egg white that will make your hair long and beautiful, it’s the yolk. Eating too many egg whites can actually block the absorption of biotin into the body, causing a depletion of this micronutrient.
Another highly recommended food to take in, for the faster growth of your hair is Sunflower seeds. Just a few little seeds can supply you with an abundance of vitamin E, which will enhance blood flow to the scalp and promote faster hair growth.
Potatoes is the new icon of the Internet, or let me say, Meme world. However, this food holds a significant position in providing the body with severally needed vitamins.
Sweet potatoes are loaded with beta-carotene, the precursor for vitamin A, that not only promotes a healthy scalp but effectively promotes hair growth, too.
You should always go for the foods, which are always loaded with beta-carotene over supplementing with high doses (over 2500 milligrams) of vitamin A from retinol since it can be toxic at very high levels.
Avocados are one of the most hidden secrets of ancient beauties, and it’s still relevant today! Just in case you are not aware, Avocados have fatty acids to help the hair grow faster.
Due to their high concentration of essential fatty acids which is naturally found in skin cells (which help to keep your skin smooth and supple), the avocados fruits are an age-old beauty secret. When it’s topically applied to the hair and scalp, the Avocados have the ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
How to Use
To get the best from the Avocado, you should follow the simple guideline below.
1. Mix a little avocado with sour cream (which contains lactic acid to help exfoliate dead skin and clean up buildup on the scalp)
2. When you’ve thoroughly mixed it, apply the mixed paste to your hair and scalp for about ten minutes before washing off.
One of the best foods you should always take for a healthier and faster growing hair is Almonds. These amazing and awesome nuts will make your hair grow faster and thicker due to their high biotin content.
Almonds contain biotin which makes the hair grows faster and look healthier.
How To Use
One cup contains nearly one-third of your daily requirement, so this will give you an idea into the full requirement. When you do this, it won’t be long, before you’ll be able to see the results in a month or two of adding them to your diet.
Food To Avoid
Another food which isn’t recommended for faster hair growth is the Oysters. The oysters contain something dangerous to hair growth. Just in case you aren’t aware, Zinc deficiency has been known to cause hair loss and poor scalp conditions, and oysters are loaded with zinc—just three ounces contains 493-percent of your daily value.
But not just any oysters will do: Steer clear of the ones caught in the Gulf of Mexico, which may contain unusually high levels of Cadmium due to the 2010 BP oil spill.
