Hair growth smoothie

Whilst having this knowledge at your disposal is the first step in revamping your diet, we know that it's only half the battle. The other half is assimilating the advice and actually implementing it, which can be very difficult, especially on an on-going basis. 


That's why the best and most simple way to ensure you start off each day as best as possible is to have a smoothie every morning for breakfast. 


This smoothie will cherry-pick the best ingredients from the previous sections, ensuring you're getting the majority of the nutrients and minerals you need for the hair follicles to grow, in a simple and convenient manner, right at the start of the day.In this section, we're going to go over the top. 


You'll not just get enough of these raw hair building nutrients, but you'll create an overabundance of them. You'll remove any chance that your body is ill-equipped to grow thick healthy hair.Re-growing hair is not easy, so you have to give it every chance. 

This means loading up the body with more than enough of what it needs. But remember, even a newborn's hair takes over a year to grow, so don't expect instant results. You have to stick with it over the long term as it will take months to effect change.


Our body is also very clever. It knows that hair is not the biggest priority; it's not essential for our survival. For this reason, other organs will receive the nutrients and minerals first, if we are deficient in any. 


That's why we need to make sure there's more than enough to go around. And for convenience, we want to do this as quickly and efficiently as possible. 


This homemade hair growth smoothie will provide you with essential micronutrients in an easily digestible and easy to assimilate form. Some foods contain lots of nutrients and minerals, but they aren't digestible and easily assimilated inside our body, rendering them almost worthless. 


The smoothie provides all of these hair growth building blocks in a way that is quickly and easily digestible so they can be as beneficial as possible.


This means that we're not only getting the nutrients into our body but also giving it every chance to properly digest and then absorb those nutrients.

Bone broth

The best option, one that will be a cornerstone of your diet moving forwards, is bone broths. 


In this section I'll show you how you can extract the minerals and collagen from chicken, beef, lamb and fish bones incredibly cheaply, and use them to help grow your healthy hair. 


From the bones of these animals (use organic and pasture raised animals where possible) we can extract collagen, proline, glycine, glutamine and various other important amino acids which are used in the hair shaft. 


Bone broth is also high in important minerals such as magnesium, which makes it great for boosting detoxification, fighting allergies and healing leaky gut.It's safe to say bone broth is an amazingly effective way to provide the body with everything it needs to grow healthy thick hair, so don't skip this part. 

It's also cheap and straightforward.Most butchers will have leftover bones that you can either get for free or buy for very cheap.


Take the bones, add just enough water to cover them, and then boil for a few hours (for chicken and fish) or 24 hours for lamb and beef. Then remove the bones and strain the broth.


Optional: If you want to add vegetables then you'll want to add them at this stage, boiling them for at least another hour afterwards, ideally three.Aim to consume at least one cup of this per day. 


If you're having meat during a meal, then it's a good idea to complement it with a cup of bone broth to provide a balanced and anti-inflammatory amino acid profile. 


 Since there are many different recipes available online, that is as specific as we'll get. You can keep it simple, with just the bones and a bit of salt and pepper, or feel free to experiment with recipes, seasoning with local produce and the bones available to you.It's important to set your body up with an abundance of these building blocks.

Essential nutrients & minerals 

As you know now, scalp tension is the primary cause of pattern hair loss, and so reducing the scalp tension is the most effective way to reverse it. That's why massages and exercises are effective.


However, there's also another way, which is also quicker, faster and easier. It's called the Growband, and it's the fastest way to reduce scalp tension.

It works by inflating an inner tube of the band, using a hand pump. This inflation causes the Growband to squeeze the scalp upwards, thereby releasing the downward tension.


The motion of inflating and deflating the Growband causes the scalp to release and then go back to normal and is very effective for reducing tension. In studies, men who used the scalp tension relieving device experienced thicker, stronger and more coverage of hair.
