SALMON FOR FIXED HAIR GROWTH
Salmon fish are filled with strong hair supplements such as vitamin D and protein, but also contain omega-3 fatty acids that promote hair growth by keeping the scalp strong and healthy.
YELLOW PEPPERS FOR LONG HAIR
Yellow peppers have almost five and a half times more vitamin C than oranges (341 milligrams, as opposed to 63). This is good news for your locks because vitamin C is an antioxidant that strengthens the hair shaft and hair follicles, also prevents breakage.
EASTERS FOR FAST HAIR GROWTH
Zinc deficiency has been noted to cause hair loss and poor scalp conditions and oysters are packed with zinc - only three ounces contain 493 percent of your daily value. But not just some oysters will do: Avoid those used in the Gulf of Mexico, which may contain unusually high levels of cadmium due to the oil oil spill from 2010.
EGGS FOR FIXED HAIR GROWTH
Eggs are the best source of the aforementioned omega-3s, and they also contain biotin (which many try to grow the hair in supplemental form). But just so you are aware that it's not egg whites that make your hair long and beautiful, it's the yolk. Eating too many egg whites can actually block the absorption of biotin in the body, causing a depletion of this micronutrient.
SOLFLOWER SEEDS FOR FAST HAW GROWTH
Only a few small seeds can support you with an abundance of vitamin E, which will improve blood flow to the scalp and promote faster and longer hair growth.
Sweet potatoes are loaded with beta carotene, the precursor of vitamin A that not only promotes a healthy scalp but promotes hair growth. However, foods that are packaged with beta-carotene over supplement with high doses - such as over 2500 milligrams - of retinol vitamin A, as it can be toxic at very high levels.
Avocado is the best food for hair growth. Due to its high concentration of essential fatty acids found naturally in skin cells (which help keep skin clean and supple), avocados are an old beauty secret. When applied topically to the hair and scalp, they have the additional ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Mix some avocado with sour cream (which contains lactic acid to help exfoliate dead skin and clean up abdominal dips on the scalp) and apply to the hair and scalp for about ten minutes before washing.
