My recipe for faster growing hair!

juiceThere is hard scientific research being done as we speak to try to find a way to make hair grow faster. If you don’t believe me, ask the gorgeously long shaggy haired lab rats at Stanford university labs. I don’t know if the genetically modified product will hit the market in our lifetime with all the science world red tape dealing with the FDA these days, sooooooooo……. in the meantime, we have to rely on more natural remedies to help us to support our own healthy hair growth.

As you know, I am an adventurous experimenter and lover of natural remedies. I have been shocked over and over again with immediate positive results that I have gotten from using and mixing my own hair and skin products. What you may not know is that I am a huge believer in a holistic and dietary approach to healing and good health.

Let me introduce you to my juicer. This, is Martha. She is my 1973 Champion juicer. I got her from my dear friend Iris.

The vintage champions are hard to find so If you don’t have a good juicer and are in the market for the ultimate kitchen appliance to support your healthy hair, skin and body, check out Williams-Sonoma juicer guide here. I recommend a slow-masticating cold press juicer like the Kuvngs Whole Slow Juicer. I also am a total long-time fan of the classic Vitamix for juicing and blending raw fruits and vegetables. I use mine constantly.
I started juicing at the same time that I started growing out my hair because I had read a lot about the benefits of juicing on hair and skin. I had tried taking Biotin to make my hair grow faster but I couldn’t afford to keep it up.

I now juice everything. I juiced mushrooms once (it didn’t work) I have juiced stinging nettle (mild and stingy in the throat!) and any time there is old produce shriveling in my fridge produce drawer, you can bet that Martha will turn it into juice.

I have always had sluggishly slow growing hair. When I started juicing, that ended. I have experimented over the last few years with different veggie and fruit blends. Some have tasted fantastic (Fresh strawberries and mint!) and others not so much ( juiced radishes) . But they have all power punched nutrition and a sense of well being into my daily life.

About a year ago I started researching the vitamins and minerals that support hair growth.

Here is what I have learned…..

Healthy hair growth necessities

B vitamins are essential to healthy and fast hair growth. I have learned that vitamins A, C, and E are also essential. I have learned that amino acids are the building blocks of protein, which is what your hair is made of. I have learned that eating foods that are alkalizing supports proper absorption of essential vitamins and minerals and supports hair regrowth, as well as basically all other healthy body functions.

Knowing these things, I formulated a recipe a several months ago that I have been using 3 -5 times a week. My hair and nails have been growing like crazy. When I drink this stuff, I can literally feel the hair on my body growing, like a werewolf. I have to trim my nails twice as often, and wax my legs every 3 weeks. My hair is growing fast and thick.

I want to share this recipe with you today because it actually really works. I want you to share it with your friends not only because it works for hair, but also because it is incredible for your skin and internal organ function. Did you know that an Alkaline diet keeps the body at a PH level that is inhospitable for cancer growth? I want you to live long with that healthy hair!

For this juice, you will need either a high powered blender or a juicer. If you are using a blender, you will want to strain out the solids from the liquids for best results. WHY? Because when you remove the fibers, the body can quickly and efficiently absorb all the vitamins and minerals from the juice without having to work double time to digest the solids. If you don’t like the idea of wasting the solids, freeze em in zip lock bags or ice cube trays and throw em into soup broth for thickness and flavor.

This juice has a savory flavor, like V8 but yummier. It is dark and thick and rich and quite filling. Make and drink this juice in the morning on an empty stomach for best results. Consider it your breakfast, or pre-breakfast booster. You will need a medium mason jar with a lid to make mixing and shaking easier;)

Here is the recipe!

Long, fast growing, healthy hair recipe

-beets and beet greens ( Iron, benefical minerals, folate )

-parsley (Vitamins A, B, and C)

-kale or chard ( B12, iron, folic acid)

-carrots ( Vitamins A and C)

*You can also add peppers or cukes or garlic or any other vegetable that you like for more flavor.IMG_3557 I like to add a dash of tabasco.

After juicing or blending and straining vegetables, pour into your mason jar and add in……..

-2 t-spoons Braggs liquid amino acids ( Protein building blocks and absorption)

-1 t-spoon Braggs ACV (Alkalizing)

-2 t-spoons Lemon juice (Vitamin C and alkalizing)

-1 tablespoon nutritional yeast( Mega B vitamins)

Put the lid on your jar and shake. Now drink up! IMG_3556

Another helpful step in stimulating hairdeluxkit growth is de-gunking your scalp and hair of nasty ingredient buildup. When I began using the ShamPHree routine, my hair growth kicked up another notch. Learn more here!

    I just bought a champion juicer on ebay for $80! Been a juicing fool recently… I think I’m going to take your challenge! I need the beast! Plus, you had me at you could feel your hair growing like a werewolf!

  2. Ariyanna

    Hi! I wanted to know how much beets, kale, etc we should be using for each serving. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. roxie.hunt Author

      3 large leaves of each, and 3 chunks of beet. I always use the same veggies, but my amounts do vary.

  3. Marianne

    Question: where in the world do you get Braggs liquid amino acids at?

    1. roxie.hunt Author

      if you go back to the post, you will find links to buy ingredients from amazon:) otherwise, a healthfood store should carry all these ingredients. Braggs is usually in the condiment isle.

  4. sophia

    how much do you think your hair has grown so far & in what amount of time?

    1. roxie.hunt Author

      I can’t say exactly, but there is a noticable difference in how fast my hair and nails grow when I am juicing:)

  5. Kathy

    I’m so excited to try this! I just had a few questions:
    1)If I make a couple servings and add the yeast and braggs etc, will that keep ok? (will weird things grow because of the yeast?)

    2)does the nutritional value decrease as the days go on?

    1. roxie.hunt Author

      it should keep just fine for up to 3 days. After that, it won’t taste as good and will not be as active:)

  6. sarah

    I’m going to try this as I’m really depressed about my sudden hair loss. Can you say how much your hair grew in a month please? Thanks.

    1. roxie.hunt Author

      When I started juicing and using the ShamPHree routine, my hair went from growing a 1/3rd of an inch monthly to at least a half an inch.

  7. Janet Diaz

    Great post. Really useful. Most of the people will lose hair because of nutrient/vitamin deficiencies. For healthy and stronger locks, you must sufficient with vitamin D,C,E,A,B12. This means you need to found all the vitamins in your diet, then which diet will fill these requirements, healthy vegan diet but you need to depend on lean meat, fish for proteins and omega fats. Also make hair masks with natural ingredients like sesame seeds, fenugreek seeds, onion juice,coconut milk, etc. Massage your scalp regularly with coconut oil/essential oil. Use provillus for stopping hair loss.

    I just found HTHG last night and I’ve been binging on it…love all of the information about herbs and infusions! I’m definitely going to try this juice recipe out soon. I’ve been meaning to juice again and I have yet to get in to savory juices. We’re juicer twins! I have an avocado green Champion! I got mine on ebay because it was so 70s and Champions are tanks. This site is making me consider cutting my own hair, even. So many excellent articles 🙂

    1. roxie.hunt Author

      Thank you so much! I am thrilled to hear that you are finding useful info on HTHG, and that we have matching juicers. I love juicing in style;)

    Hey, this looks really awesome and I can’t wait to try it, but first things first how often would you recommend for someone to drink this and if i blended this in to a smoothie like substance would it work as well?

    1. roxie.hunt Author

      Yep it would work as a smoothie as well! I would do it at least once a week, if not more. The more you do it the better;)

  10. bunnylove

    This sounds like a great recipe! is there a way you can show us pictures of your hair growth and what it has done for you so far?

    1. roxie.hunt Author

      It is hard to tell on my hair because I trim it often and my hair grows out instead of down, so it just gets bigger and bigger. I have kept it at the same length for quite a while now so I can’t really show you progress with photos. All I know is, my hair grows like crazy!

  11. Sophie M

    Instead of adding amino-acids, can I substitute for alkaline water? And if so, how high pH should it be?

    1. roxie.hunt Author

      I don’t exactly know what PH, but I say go for it!

  12. organic gardening

    I’ve been browsing online greater than three
    hours today, but I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is lovely price enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the web might be much more useful than ever before.

  13. dana

    What if I dont have the liquid amino acids in the mixture? Will that take away significant strength from the juice? Like will my hair still grow faster?

  14. Dana

    What can i use as a substitute for the liquid amino acids?

    1. roxie.hunt Author

      Hmmmmm. If you take a b-12 supplement it will give the same general benefits.

  15. kim

    Could you please put what amount of each ingredients that you supposed to use. Thanks

    1. roxie.hunt Author

      I just use whatever I have. You don’t have to be precise with the veggies and fruits:)

    I started losing hair from nursing and then I bought nuhairrx serum and within a week I noticed a big difference! I can’t wait to see the results in the next couple of months.

      It makes my hair shine and smell great. Also, ever since I used this product, I noticed less hair fall. Highly recommended.
