Q
My hair is extremely short, and I would like to know how to grow it back long and healthy without wearing braids or hair extensions. Any tips?

A
Beginning a healthy diet today can mean a more gorgeous head of hair within six months to a year. Hair growth can vary from 1/4 inch to 1 inch per month. On average, a person can expect to have about four to six inches of new growth every year, so it will take time to notice the effects of your nutritional changes. A diet rich in Vitamin C will help promote the creation of collagen, a structural fiber. Hair follicles, blood vessels and the skin all require collagen to stay healthy. B vitamins—vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12—are involved in the creation of red blood cells, which carry oxygen and nutrients to all body cells, including the cells of the scalp, follicles and growing hair. Zinc is also important for tissue growth and repair, which includes hair growth.
