I always get so exited when I hear about products or foods that promote healthy, beautiful hair while making it grow thicker. The foods listed below can also make your hair grow back if you have vitamin deficiency like I do. This is not a blog post about how to make your hair grow longer faster. These foods may not make your hair grow as fast as you want, but having longer hair always starts from the inside out. If you've been wondering if I take hair growth supplements, I can tell you right now, I do! I take iron because I have an iron deficiency. And I also take Vitamin B12 ( the real thing) because it makes my hair feel stronger. I do not take biotin because I think I get enough from the rice that I eat every other day. I have used avocado oil on my hair before. I even mixed fresh avocados with honey and extra virgin olive oil and used it as a deep conditioner. Today's post will focus on what's in those foods in your pantry that makes them so good for your hair. And the good thing is, you only need a few servings a week.
