8 Foods That Help Your Hair Grow Faster



Want an easy solution to make your hair grow faster? Add these protein and vitamin rich foods to your diet and watch you hair grow longer, stronger and healthier!





1. Salmon: This fish is loaded with the strong hair supporters like Vitamin D and protein, but it also contains omega-3 fatty acids that promote hair growth by keeping your scalp healthy.

2. Yellow Peppers: Yellow bell peppers have nearly five and a half times more vitamin C than oranges (341 milligrams, as opposed to 63). This is good news for your locks since vitamin C is an antioxidant that strengthens the hair shaft and hair follicles, as well as prevents breakage.

3. Oysters: Zinc deficiency has been noted to cause hair loss and poor scalp conditions and oysters are loaded with zinc — just three ounces contain 493 percent of your daily value. But not just any oysters will do: Steer clear of the ones caught in the Gulf of Mexico, which may contain unusually high levels of Cadmium due to the 2010 BP oil spill.

4. Eggs: Eggs are an excellent source of those aforementioned omega-3s, and they are also contain biotin (which many people trying to grow their hair take in supplement form). But, just so you’re aware, it’s not the egg white that will make your hair long and beautiful, it’s the yolk. Eating too many egg whites can actually block the absorption of biotin into the body, causing a depletion of this micronutrient.

5. Sunflower Seeds: Just a few little seeds can supply you with an abundance of vitamin E, which will enhance blood flow to the scalp and promote faster hair growth.

6. Sweet Potatoes: These are loaded with beta carotene, the precursor for vitamin A that not only promotes a healthy scalp but  promotes hair growth. But choose foods loaded with beta carotene over supplementing with high doses — like over 2500 milligrams — of vitamin A from retinol since it can be toxic at very high levels.

7.  Avocados: Due to their high concentration of essential fatty acids naturally found in skin cells (which help to keep your skin smooth and supple), avocados are an age-old beauty secret. When topically applied to the hair and scalp, they have the added ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Mix a little avocado with sour cream (which contains lactic acid to help exfoliate dead skin and clean up buildup on the scalp) and apply to your hair and scalp for about ten minutes before washing it off.

8. Almonds: These nuts will make your hair grow faster and thicker due to their high biotin content. One cup contains nearly one-third of your daily requirement. You should be able to see the results in a month or two of adding them to your diet.

2015 Summer Hair Trends

Are you looking to break out from the same old style? Maybe your extensions have seen better days, or perhaps you have been thinking about adding a fringe or layers this summer. Whatever your style, this year's trends will inspire you to make a change.

The best summer cuts are all about the bob. Whether you prefer a lob (long bob) or a wob (wavy bob), there is a look that is sure to get you noticed! The lob / wob is a favorite among celebs like Lauren Conrad, Lucy Hale, Kylie Jenner & Jourdan Dunn. To get that wavy look use a texture spray like TIGI's Catwalk Salt Spray, or Kerastase's Spray a Porter. You can also create more structured waves by bending your hair with a large curling iron or flat iron.

If a new cut is not on your agenda this summer, add accessories to draw attention to your beautiful locks. Flowers, Clips and decorative hair jewelry are sure to help you show off your unique style. For the beach lover, it's all about the skin. A slick ponytail or casual braid will help to show off your natural glow.

For your summer color, transition out of the ombre by adding a few well placed face framing highlights. If you are blonde, adding multiple tones to your hair will add dimension & interest to a solid color. For Brunettes, a mono-tonal look is what's hot for you! If red is what you desire, try a sizzling copper chestnut or a cool strawberry red.
