5 Common Foods for Hair Growth

You are what you eat, so is your hair. This article isn't about hair masks it's about foods you can incorporate into your diet, as often as possible, to help your hair grow.

1. Eggs -

Eggs are full of protein and essential nutrients that contribute to hair health, such as choline and vitamins A, D, and B12. Keep the yolk in your eggs to get the most Vitamin D. Two specific carotenoids found in eggs, lutein and zeaxanthin, also play a role in maintaining cellular health, especially of eyes, skin, and hair.


2. Peanuts/ Peanut Butter -

Peanuts are a significant source of biotin, known to both stimulate hair growth and prevent hair loss. A ¼ cup serving packs up to 9 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, and a unique profile of antioxidants.


3. Sardines -

Omega-3 and vitamin D-packed sardines come readily packaged and available (buy them in water or oil if you can). Try adding sardines to salads and spreads as a lower-mercury alternative to other fatty fish.



4. Avocado - Packed with healthy fats, avocados contain Vitamin E which is a powerful antioxidant that promotes hair growth. Avocados also contain biotin which is essential in hair growth



5. Plain Greek Yoghurt - Unsweetened plain Greek yogurt contains tons of protein which is the building block for those gorgeous locks. Plus, plain Greek yogurt is very versatile and can be incorporated into a filling breakfast (think smoothies and parfaits). The greatest attribute of yogurt is its probiotics, which are the good bacteria that help your body absorb nutrients.
