Diet for proper hair growth

Follikesh Hair

Dreaming of healthy, shiny, and voluminous hair? Surely we all do! Despite pampering them with numerous hair care products, we fail to achieve our hair goals. A healthy hair care routine must include a balanced diet for healthy hair growth. Don’t know what it can be? Here’s what you should inculcate in your diet for proper hair growth:


Excellent source of biotin, consuming eggs can help in boosting hair growth. Biotin deficiency is a significant contributor to hair loss and hair thinning. If you have a closer look at any dietary supplement for hair growth, you will find Biotin in it. Moreover, the protein found in eggs further helps in supporting skin, and nail health.


Healthy hair cell growth needs Iron support. Rich in Iron, Vitamin C, and A, spinach can be a portion of great food for promoting healthy hair growth. For those who don’t have enough nutrients to support hair growth, that’s when you must ponder on spinach to have a healthy hair care diet. 

Nuts & Seeds

Other excellent source of nutrients is almond and walnut. Power packed with magnesium, protein, Vitamin B, biotin, omega 3, and 6 fatty acids, these dry nuts promotes hair follicles while nourishing the scalp for new hair growth. 

Salmon fish

Salmon fish contains a high amount of healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Since our bodies can’t prepare their own healthy fats, consuming fish like sardines, salmon, and mackerel can help with the much-needed healthy fats for hair growth. 

Vitamin D

According to some studies, food fortified with vitamin D can support and improve hair growth. Although vitamin D promotes nerves, muscles, and immune system functions, it plays a vital role in stimulating new and existing hair follicles.   

L-lysine sources

The amino acid called L-Lysine plays a vital role in promoting the growth and maintenance of hair. The human body cannot produce this amino acid naturally within the body hence, including L-lysine-rich food in your diet can work wonders. Food with a high amount of protein like beans, meat, fish, and eggs has a higher amount of L-Lysine. 


Drinking carrot juice daily or eating them raw can do wonders for your hair. Rich in Vitamin A, carrot stimulates hair cells and tissues while enabling the scalp to produce the natural sebum (oil) for healthy hair growth.

Chia Seeds

Enriched with omega – 3 fatty acids, phosphorous, protein, fiber, and calcium, chia seeds act as a hair-strengthening agent. The goodness of protein found in chia seeds can help you achieve thick and shiny hair. You can also use chia seeds in your hair mask or hair oil to reap its benefit.
