9 Healthy Foods For Hair Growth

Silky, gorgeous hair is undoubtedly a treasure. After all, who doesn't desire long, healthy locks?

While age and genetics play significant roles, a nutritious diet can be crucial, especially if you're combating hair loss. Here are some healthful foods that can help your hair grow faster:

1. Berries

Berries are full of antioxidant vitamins that protect the hair follicles against free-radical damage, help strengthen hair to prevent it from becoming brittle and breaking.

2. Spinach

Loaded with beneficial nutrients like folate, iron, and vitamins A and C, all of which may promote hair growth. 

Folate plays a large role in overall health. Iron helps boost circulation and carries oxygen to your hair's roots, which promotes the hair to grow faster and longer. Vitamin A helps the skin glands produce sebum. This oily substance helps moisturize the scalp to keep hair healthy. With Vitamin C your body creates a protein known as collagen — a part of the hair structure.

An interesting fact that an ounce (28 grams) of sunflower seeds provides nearly 50% of your daily vitamin E needs, with a wide variety of hair-healthy B vitamins. Selenium is a mineral that may help boost hair growth.
