12 Natural Remedies that Boost Hair Growth

Rev up collagen production with vitamin C: Collagen surrounds the hair strands but as we age collagen breaks down, causing hair to be more vulnerable to breaking.  The best way to boost collagen is not through some expensive medical procedure, it’s by getting more vitamin C.  Foods high in vitamin C include: citrus fruits, strawberries and red peppers.  Supplementing with 250 mg daily can help boost collagen production which has the added bonus of reducing wrinkling.

Prevent breakage with vitamin E: Vitamin E is required to nourish damaged hair and to prevent breakage.  It aids the body’s ability to manufacture keratin within hair strands to reduce breakage.  Supplementing with 400 IU of vitamin E can be helpful to restore locks.

Eat foods rich in iron: Iron is also essential for hair growth and can be found in blackstrap molasses, green leafy vegetables, leeks, cashews, dried fruits, figs, and berries.  To help your body absorb iron, you’ll need enough vitamin C.

Give your hair a mineral boost: The minerals silica and zinc are also critical for hair growth.  Take 500 mg of silica two times daily and 30 mg of zinc once daily.

Boost scalp circulation with rosemary essential oil: Rosemary essential oil has been traditionally used to increase circulation to the scalp.  Add a few drops per dollop of shampoo or, better yet, add a few drops of rosemary to coconut oil and massage your scalp regularly.

Wow. Thanks for posting and sharing the article. When I started losing my hair, it wasnt a lot of fun and it got to the point when I was even embarassed to go outside without a hat or scarf tied on my head. Luckily my friend told me about this solution that in no time at all completely turned this around.

I use groveda solutions hair growth serum and my hair grows at least 1 inch a month. And it's fuller. It has Vitamins, grape seed, coconut oil, Olive oil, brahmi and amla. You can get it on their website or amazon. It saves time and money too.

Great information, but it is also suggested by hair loss experts to add an hair loss shampoo and minoxidil to help out with combating hair loss. The best products for these are Regenepure. Here is a great article on the Regenepure line
