We love to eat. So when we heard about yummy foods that might actually be good for helping hair grow, we jumped on the proverbial bandwagon.

The ladies at have devised a list of Five Fab Foods to encourage hair growth, AND they’ve found recipes to make these essentials into delicious meals.

Check them out: 

1. Kale & Spinach

Spinach and Kale are incredibly nutritious and beneficial veggies to add to your regular diet.
Because these powerhouse greens are high in vitamin C, vitamin K and calcium, they help to strengthen your hair.

2. Sweet Potatoes

Rich in vitamin A, sweet potatoes are excellent for cell growth thanks to its high beta-carotene content.

3. Lentils

Protein is an important component for hair growth because without enough protein for keratin (which gives our hair its structure), strands become weaker and hair growth slows down immensely.

4. Avocado

There are myriad DIY treatments that include avocado as an ingredient due to its awesome moisturizing properties, but you can do your hair a favor by doing more than just putting it on your hair.

5. Aloe Vera Juice

We all know good old H20 is the chief source for moisture but sipping on aloe vera juice is also great for preventing parched hair.
