Salmon: Great source of Omega-3 fatty acids. which nourish the hair and support its growth. They reduce inflammation which is associated with hair loss. Omega-3 fatty acids, help give the hair shine and makes it look hydrated and youthful.
Other sources of Omega-3 fatty acids are tuna fish and other fatty fish.
Sweet Potatoes: they are a good source of iron, copper and potassium, magnesium and beta-carotene. These aid in the growth of cells, prevents the hair from thinning and reduces the dullness in the hair. The collagen in the potatoes also help with the proper growth of hair strands.
Olive Oil: contain proteins, antioxidants, and antimicrobial agents that contribute to healthy hair. Add olive oil to any of your favorite dishes to enhance it, but also for the absorption of the nutrients necessary for healthy hair. It strengthens the hair follicles, which increases the life span of each hair strand.
Olive oil can also be applied directly to the scalp and hair strands. It is a very important ingredient in our hair products.
Avocados: they are a great source of biotin and adding this into your diet will increase hair growth. Avocado also contains potassium and magnesium that seal the cuticle cells. This makes the hair look smooth and shiny and prevents it from breaking.

Eggs: the egg yolk contains biotin which helps decrease hair loss. Eggs can also be applied to the hair directly, but must be rinsed off with cold water.
Berries: have strong antioxidant properties which help protect hair follicles against damage from harmful molecules called free radicals. Blueberries in particular stimulate hair growth because they contain proanthocyanins (chemical compounds found in plants).
