1. Eggs

Yep, we said it, eggs are a key ingredient to contribute towards your hair growth, who’d have thought it! They’re a great source of biotin and protein, as well as zinc and selenium, which are essential when keeping your hair healthy. A deficiency in any of these ingredients have been known to linked to hair loss, so you know what to do, add egg to your diet and enjoy a tasty meal in the process. For those who are willing to get their hands dirty, why not try adding egg yolk directly to your scalp to infuse the root of your hair with vitamins, allowing your hair to grow stronger and become less prone to breaking.

2. Berries

Berries are full of goodness and the relevant vitamins that promote hair growth, including vitamin C which has extra strong antioxidant properties. These antioxidants then fight harmful molecules, known as free radicals, allowing your hair to stay protected from damage and breakage. So next time you’re snacking on your favourite berries, remember how much they can save your hair too.
