Do you know???
Your hair grows around 0.5 inches (1.25 cm) per month, and 6 inches (15 cm) per year. The fast growth of your hair depends on factors like age, health, genetics and diet.

Many people want strong and healthy hair, especially as they grow older.

Remember factors like age and genetics can't be changed but diet is one thing you have control over. That means consuming of balanced diet with right nutrients can help promote hair growth, especially if you’re experiencing hair loss due to poor nutrition.

In fact, consuming a diet lacking the right nutrients can lead to hair loss, beware of what you consume.

Here are the 5 best foods you can eat  to promote hair growth.


Eggs are a great source of protein and biotin, two nutrients that may promote hair growth.

• Eating sufficient protein (like zinc, selenium and other hair-healthy nutrients) is essential for hair growth. If you lack protein in your diet, the probability of hair loss is very high.
• Biotin is very important for the production of a hair protein called keratin. Consumption of more biotin can help improve hair growth in people with a biotin deficiency.


Fatty fish like salmon, herring and mackerel have nutrients that may aid the fast promotion of hair growth.They are excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been linked to hair growth.


Sweet potatoes are great source of beta-carotene. The conversion of this compound into vitamin A takes place in the body, which is linked to good health of the hair. Vitamin A could also speed up and encourage the rate of hair growth and thicker hair, while preventing other hair follicles from returning to the previous state.
Sweet potatoes (about 114 grams) contains enough beta-carotene to provide more than four times your daily vitamin A needs.


What promotes hair growth are found in soybeans compounds. One of these compounds is spermidine, which is abundant in soybeans. While Beans are great plant-based source of protein, which is very important to hair growth. Beans are good source of zinc, it helps with the fast hair growth and repair cycle.
A 3.5-ounce (100-gram) serving of black beans provides 7% of your daily zinc needs.They also provide many other hair-healthy nutrients, including iron, biotin and folate.


Meat is a staple in many people’s diet and is rich in nutrients that may aid hair growth. It is a great source of protein, which is essential for healthy and strong hair. The protein in meat aids growth and helps repair and strengthen hair follicles. 
A 3.5-ounce (100-gram) serving of cooked sirloin steak provides as much as 29 grams of protein. Red meat, in particular, is rich in a type of iron that’s easy to absorb. This mineral helps the red blood cells deliver oxygen to all cells in the body, including hair follicles.

What you eat can have a huge effect on the health of your hair.

A lack of the right nutrients including vitamins A, C, D and E, zinc, B vitamins, iron, biotin, protein and necessary fatty acids may slow down hair growth or even cause hair loss.

Fortunately, correcting a deficiency in any of these nutrients may help treat hair loss and promote the rate of hair growth.

If you think you’re lacking any of these nutrients, try adding some of the above foods to your diet.
