Foods rich in vitamins E,C,B6, B5 and A are essential in promotion hair growth. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that not only makes your skin glow but improves your scalp circulation, stimulating hair growth.

Vitamin C, also an antioxidant, helps in maintaining the overall health of your hair. Vitamin B6 has a part in the creation of melanin, which is responsible for giving your hair its vibrant color. Vitamin B5 helps prevent premature graying of your hair. Vitamin B3, also known as niacin, is like vitamin E because it also helps in improving the blood circulation at your scalp. Vitamin A assists in the production of natural oils to prevent your scalp from drying and becoming flaky scalp. Vitamin E is found green vegetables and raw nuts. My personal favorite way to receive vitamin E is eating brocolli with blue cheese dressing or having a Naked Juice in Green Machine. Vitamin C can be found in citrus and juicy fruits such as oranges, lemon and berries. You can get your share of vitamin B6 from cereals, eggs, and beans. Vitamin B5 can also be found in most sources of vitamin B6. Vitamin B3, on the other hand, can be obtained from fish and white meat such as chicken and turkey. Vitamin A, of course, is known to come from carrots, but peaches and apricots are excellent sources, too.

  2. Eat a healthy diet. Avoid foods that are high in sugar or fat.
  3. Treat your hair like a piece of fine old lace. Treat it carefully avoiding any unnecessary brushing, combing or handling.
