Avocados are delicious, nutritious and a great example of healthy fats. They are also an excellent source of vitamin E, which promotes hair growth. One medium avocado has about 200 grams and provides around 21% of your daily vitamin E requirements. Moreover, vitamin E neutralizes free radicals and helps in better hair growth.

Beans are a great plant-based source of protein, which is also essential for hair growth. Beans are a great source of zinc too, which aids the hair growth and repair cycle. A (100-gram) serving of black beans provides up to 7% of your daily zinc requirements.

  • Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are a great source of beta-carotene. A medium sweet potato (about 114 grams) contains enough beta-carotene to provide more than four times your daily vitamin A needs. It also helps in maintaining the ideal hair texture and reduces hair fall.

Eggs are a great source of protein and biotin, which helps in improving the condition of your hair and promote hair growth. Hair follicles are made of mostly protein. And a lack of protein in the diet can result in hair loss. Biotin is vital for the production of a hair protein called keratin, which is why biotin supplements are often marketed for hair growth. Research has proved that consuming biotin surely promotes hair growth.

Spinach is the healthiest form of green vegetables. It is loaded with beneficial nutrients like folate, iron, and vitamins A and C, all of which may promote hair growth. Vitamin A in spinach helps the glands produce sebum, which helps the scalp maintain healthy oils and reduce dryness or itchiness. A cup (30 grams) of spinach provides 50% of your daily vitamin A.
