Do you want to have longer, healthier, and stronger hairin as little time as possible? Well there are some foods that can easily be the answer to beautiful locks of hair! Listed below are 8 foods that can promote a quicker and healthier hair growth.


Avocados carry tons of vitamins B and E, which gives hair strength and faster hair growth. The vitamins contained in avocados are excellent for treating hair loss as well. Instead of eating avocado, you can also place it directly onto your hair and scalp. Using avocado as a moisturizer or a hair mask will surely give your hair a beautiful new health that your friends will truly envy.


Salmon is not only a very delicious dinner to have, but it is also great for making hair much healthier and fuller! Salmon contains protein, vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids that aids in hair growth because they can make the scalp and hair follicles healthier.


This sweet tropical fruit comes with many health benefits, including improving the health of one's hair. The vitamin K in coconuts are responsible for making hair follicles healthier. Coconut oils can be used as a hair mask or conditioner to get rid of an itchy scalp.


Oysters are great for speacial occasions, and for you hair! Oysters contain zinc, which definetly promotes hair growth. All diets should have fair amounts of zinc involved, because a lack of zinc can lead to hair loss, so go ahead and treat yourself to an oyster or two!


Eggs are a common food in any diet, and also aid in hair growth. Eggs are high in biotin and protein, which aids in making a healthy scalp, which leads to gorgeous and growing hair. Eatings eggs can benefit you, but you can also put eggs on your scalp and hair directly! An egg white hair mask can treat the hair follicles, reduce frizz, and have strong, sleek hair.


Spinach contains amounts of vitamins A and vitamin C, which are also vitamins that make the hair and scalp healthier. Not everyone is a huge fan for spinach, but making a smoothie with a variety of fruits blended with spinach will give the same benefits and there will be no spinach taste!

Sweet Potatoes
