Can the food in your pantry make your hair grow longer and thicker? Super foods are not only praised because of what they can do to our bodies on the inside, but also promote clearer skin and longer hair. Stock up on these five super foods the next time you’re grocery shopping.

Whole grains such as quinoa are loaded with protein and vitamin E which is an essential building block of healthy hair, skin and nails. Did you know that hair is also made of protein? Eat various foods which will encourage hair growth and strengthen your locks from the inside out.

Greek yoghurt

Not only does greek yoghurt contain large amounts of yummy protein, but just a small serving each day helps to restore the body of it’s nutrients and gives a boost of protein to lack lustre hair. Serve with your favourite fresh fruits and nuts for a quick snack at any time of the day.

Kidney beans

Many types of beans are packed with zinc, iron and biotin which are all essential for long and healthy hair growth. Did you also know that people who suffer from biotin deficiencies also have overly-dry hair? Switch up your diet and watch the state of your hair transform before you know it.


Omega-3 fatty acids are extremely important if you want to maintain good health.
