By Aniela / October 5, 2016

We've spoken a lot before about hair treatments, especially hair growth treatments, and some of my favorite methods. Today we'll take a look at these 8 foods that make hair grow faster! But on top of using these amazing hair masks, there are also other ways to make your hair grow faster, longer, healthier, AND stronger! It all starts from within! Believe it or not, what we put inside of our bodies, can make a big difference as to what appears outside of our bodies. So eating a diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and omega-3s not only makes us feel better and helps us maintain a healthy weight, but it can also enhance our appearance from our skin, nails, and hair! Today we'll talk about the 8 foods that will make your hair grow faster. These 8 foods are not only nutritious, and a serious hair boost, but also delicious too! So let's dig in!

8 Foods That Make Hair Grow Faster

#1. Salmon


This super fish is loaded with vitamin D and proteins, a must-have for strong hair. It also contains omega-3 fatty acids that promote hair growth by keeping your scalp healthy and moisturized. And it's delicious too duh!

#2. Yellow Peppers


Did you know that yellow peppers have 5 times more vitamin C than oranges? Crazy, right? Vitamin C is SUPER important when it comes to hair growth as it strengthens the shaft and hair follicles, which prevents damage and breakage.

#3. Oysters


Oysters are super loaded with zinc! Zinc deficiency has been linked with hair breakage and loss, and not enough of us get it in our diets! Just three ounces of oyster contains 493% of your daily zinc value. Just try to stay clear of oysters from the Gulf of Mexico as they contain high levels of cadmium due to the 2010 BP oil spill.

#4. Eggs


Eggs are full of biotin which is a crucial element and hair growing, and many people actually take pill forms of biotin to grow their hair. But why do that when you can make yourself a delicious omelette? Be careful though, it's not the whites that contain the biotin but the yolks – so make sure you eat the whole egg!

#5. Sunflower Seeds


Sunflower seeds are delicious, but unfortunately, also addictive. Remember, you only need a very very small handful to get a mega dose of vitamin E. Vitamin E enhances blood flow to the scalp and therefore promotes faster hair growth.

#6. Sweet Potatoes

Three sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are loaded with beta carotene which is crucial for hair growth. Beta Carotene is also a precursor for vitamin A which promotes healthy scalp growth.

#7. Avocados


Avocados are not only super delicious, but they're also an old age beauty weapon. Consume it internally to get your daily fat content, and promote healthy, strong, hair growth. Or, make an avocado mask for super shiny and soft locks.

#8. Almonds


Last but certainly not least, we have almonds on our list. Add almonds to your diet (a small handful every day) to get your daily dose of biotin and you'll start seeing results within a month or two! Truly a superfood!
