Juices You Can Make to Promote Healthy Hair

The benefits of a healthy body and scalp when trying to stave off hair loss have long been understood, with vitamins and minerals widely accepted as an integral part of the package. Now a new train of thinking suggests you can give the body the goodness it needs… simply by drinking it.

According to a recent article on MailOnline, nutritionists Cassandra Barns and Shona Wilkinson say that drinking certain raw vegetable and fruit juices is one of the easiest and most effective ways to keep your hair in tip-top condition. You can juice them yourself at home and, to keep things interesting (and tasty) the pair identified 12 different foods which can all be kind to the scalp, promoting strong and healthy hair.

Among them are:

Juices That Can Help Keep Hair HealthySpinach

An excellent source of iron, and recommended when iron deficiency is an issue as this can play a part in the hair loss condition Telogen Effluvium. Coriander is recommended for the same reason.

Carrots and Onions

Both very good sources of biotin, a vitamin that helps with hair growth. The MailOnline article states that 100g of carrots contains roughly a fifth of your recommended intake. Onions, meanwhile, contain copper which can support hair pigmentation.


An unusual addition to the list in that you’re recommended not to drink it, but to rub the juices onto your scalp. The reasoning is that hair loss can sometimes result from an infection of the hair follicles, and garlic’s anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties could help. Not too sure about the smell, though!


A great source of vitamin C, one of a suite of vitamins that support the immune system and may in turn help to protect hair follicles.

Aloe Vera

Drinking the juice of this spiky green plant is claimed to be beneficial to the growth and health of the hair. However, the effects of Aloe Vera have sometimes been overstated by the hair care industry – though when used alongside other treatments Aloe Vera may have some benefits.

Whilst these may encourage healthy hair, what these juices won’t do – sadly – is halt hair loss, unless you are experiencing shedding due to specific dietary deficiencies. If this is the cause of your thinning, taking a targeted dietary supplement like Hair Vitalics can also help.

Although diet can play a part, hair usually falls out for other reasons – be that genetics in cases of Male Pattern Baldness or Female Hair Loss, extreme tension placed frequently on the follicles in instances of Traction Alopecia or as a result of an autoimmune disorder such as Alopecia Areata.

As has been said time and again in this blog, a healthy lifestyle may well be your best defence against certain hair loss conditions, but no one is immune from waking up one morning and seeing an abundance of hairs on their pillow.

If you are worried enough about your hair to be blitzing and drinking everything that ever once had a root on it, you may do well to seek out some expert help so that your condition can be diagnosed. A bespoke hair loss treatment plan can usually be decided upon during the appointment, and in many cases this – and not the contents of your blender – will lead to regrowth.
