10 things you should be eating to make your hair grow faster

  1. Salmon: The omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D in salmon are essential for scalp health and to keep your hair hydrated.
  2. Dark green vegetables: They contain vitamins A and C, both of which help in the formation of sebum (your hair’s natural conditioner).
  3. Lentils: These little guys are rich in folic acid, which helps provide oxygen to your scalp and skin and in turn promotes hair growth and cell renewal.
  4. Nuts: Nuts are a great source of protein. Walnuts in particular have a significant amount of omega-3 fatty acids, biotin, and vitamin E. Walnuts also have copper, a mineral that helps keep your natural hair colour rich.
  5. Poultry: Hair is nearly all protein, so foods rich in protein give you the building blocks for hair. Poultry also contains hair-healthy zinc, iron, and B vitamins to keep your hair strong and thick.
  6. Eggs: Another good protein source, eggs contain zinc, selenium, sulphur, and iron. Iron is especially important because low iron (anaemia) is a major cause of hair loss, particularly in women.
  7. Whole grains: Whole grains are rich in nutrients and fibres which promote hair growth and make them a super food for healthy hair.
  8. Oysters: Hair loss or dandruff can be the result of low production levels of the hormone androgen. Oysters are rich in zinc and assist in the production of androgen.
  9. Green Tea: Green tea contains polyphenols which help to keep your scalp healthy. You can also wash your hair with green tea or apply it to your scalp if you suffer from dandruff.
  10. Carrots: As well as helping your eyes, the vitamin A in carrots helps in formation of sebum oil in the scalp, which keep your hair healthy and hydrated.
