What if we told you that you can support your eyelashes by adding some simple meals, smoothies, and juices to your diet? That’s right — along with taking the best hair supplements and incorporating a proper styling and wash regimen, you can also have your meals play a part in keeping your lashes as healthy and gorgeous as possible.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite quick and easy lash-boosting recipes. Your hair and your taste buds will thank you!

Easy Meals

Salsa Snack
As we’ve mentioned before, the rich vitamin E contents in avocados can protect your hair, leading to longer and stronger strands. Simply cut a large organic avocado in half, remove the seed from the pit, and scoop out some flesh so you have a sizable hole inside to add some other refreshing veggies. Chop and sautee the mushrooms, then dice red onions, grape tomatoes, and cilantro (pretend you’re making pico de gallo salsa to guide you on how small you should cut these vegetables). Add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste and mix together, then scoop into the avocado hole.

What you’ll need:
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tbsp. red onion
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Shiitake mushrooms
  • Salt & pepper to taste


Superfood Bowl
We hear the term “superfoods” all the time, but are they super enough to help hair grow? The answer is a resounding yes! Foods like quinoa, avocado, spinach, and all greens come to mind—and these delicious, nutrient-heavy foods can help us with our lash goals. Cosmetic chemist Ginger King tells WellandGood.com [1] that quinoa is excellent for hair growth because of its amino acid content. “Amino acids are the building blocks of cells, so it’s essential for both skin and hair to function. It’s like nutritional supplements,” she says. Therefore, it should be the base of your hair-loving superfood bowl! Throw in the usual avocado and spinach, and add some chickpeas and broccoli as well for higher amounts of protein. Want some crunch? Top off your bowl with sunflower seeds, which are rich in vitamin E.

What you’ll need:
  • Quinoa
  • Spinach
  • Chickpeas
  • Broccoli
  • ½ avocado
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Olive oil + lemon

Avocado Toast
Yes, the trendiest breakfast of all can help your lashes look amazing. Avocado is one of the very best foods for hair growth, so why not enjoy a delicious slice of avocado toast? This meal doesn’t need much explaining in the hair growth category, so we’ll just let you enjoy it!

What you’ll need:
  • 1 slice of bread
  • ½ avocado
  • Pink Himalayan salt
  • Olive oil + lemon
  • Red chili flakes (optional)

Smoothies


Berries & Biotin
Who doesn’t love a delicious, berry-filled smoothie in the morning? Add a hint of sweetness to your morning routine with a berry and biotin-powdered mix. Blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries are loaded with antioxidants which help protect the hair follicles. These antioxidants specifically protect the hair on your body from free radicals and potential environmental damage [2]. Mix together some delicious berries, along with powerful avocado and spinach. 

What you’ll need:
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Avocado
  • Spinach
  • Milk of choice
  • GRO Hair Boost Adaptogen Supplement in Berry

Green Machine
Getting your greens in your diet is essential, and that also goes for hair growth. Green smoothies are a delicious way to turn your lash dreams into a reality, and they’re so easy to make. Sip on some avocado, spinach, and cucumber to get those lashes growing and flowing. Don’t forget to add in some matcha, which has a high level of antioxidants and protects your hair from free radicals [3].

What you’ll need:
  • Avocado
  • Spinach
  • Cucumber
  • Coconut water
  • GRO Hair Boost Adaptogen Supplement in Matcha Green Tea

Vitamin C Load
Vitamin deficiencies are fairly common, but a lack of vitamin C can potentially affect your hair. Because it’s a potent antioxidant, not having proper levels of vitamin C can lead to your hair being less protected and exposed to harmful chemicals and free radicals [4]. Moreover, vitamin C is essential for collagen production, which is vital for hair health and growth. Mix together some vitamin C-powered fruits along with our boosting supplement!

What you’ll need:
  • Non-dairy milk of choice
  • Fresh pineapple
  • Strawberries
  • Mango
  • GRO Hair Boost Adaptogen Supplement in Berry

Juices


Carrot
Carrot juice is chock-full of vitamin A, which can condition your skin, preparing it for hair growth. But that’s not all it does. Studies have shown [5] that not having enough vitamin A in your system can lead to dry, brittle hair, meaning that your lashes could fall out. Carrot juice is fresh, delicious, and could be a lash savior!

Kiwi
Vitamin E is just as important when it comes to hair wellness, and that’s where kiwi comes in. The small, juicy fruit is a great source of vitamin E which promotes hair growth all around [6]. Kiwi juice may not get all of the recognition that it deserves, but we’re here to tell you it’s both delicious and beneficial. Enjoy a glass of fresh kiwi juice to start your day.
 
Aloe Vera
Aloe vera [7] is one of those miracle ingredients that you can never get enough of. Seriously, it’s been used for centuries to treat a variety of health and beauty concerns. It contains vitamins A, C, and E which encourage cell turnover and hair growth. The folic acid and vitamin B12 found in aloe vera can also prevent hair fallout.
