Chia Seeds may be small but are packed with nutrients like zinc and copper that are known to promote hair growth. , Plus, they contain calcium, manganese, and phosphorus, and is a great source of healthy omega-3 fats. Sprinkle some chia seeds on salads or add a tablespoon to your smoothie.

Avocado is a great healthy fat to add to your diet. Plus it keeps your scalp in good shape as well as prevents hair loss as a result of a vitamin deficiency. If you chemically treat your hair or use a lot of styling tools try mashing up an avocado and applying topically to your scalp and hair for a conditioning mask. Your locks will thank you.

Walnuts are a great snack for hair growth because they contain biotin (vitamin B7) that strengthens the hair follicle and prevent loss. The oil in the walnuts improves the elastin in the hair contributing to the health of your hair.

Lentils are high in zinc, folic acid and iron. The iron specifically helps the red blood cells carry oxygen needed for cell renewal and strength. So this is a great food, especially if you are vegetarian.

Eggs are extremely helpful in achieving shiny and beautiful hair. In addition to protein, they supply your body with biotin and other b vitamins essential for hair growth. This is another food that can also be topically applied to your hair. Just add the egg white from one egg with two tablespoons of olive oil. Leave on your scalp and hair for twenty minutes, then rinse.
