Eat Seaweed for Hair Growth

Seaweed acts as a hair growth nutrient as it contains so many micro nutrients including iodine.

Seaweed has a good combination of minerals and amino acids that help strengthen the hair and scalp. Seaweed also contains biotin that is connected with healthy hair. The beta carotene in the plant helps maintain collagen at higher levels which reduces scars and markings on the skin. Seaweed is so potent that it has been used as a supplement for age reversal.

Make sure the seaweed you purchase comes from “clean” waters.

By far the best seaweed for hair growth is kelp and should be a staple of your daily hair diet.

Hair Loss and Hair Growth, It’s Slow Path

The challenge we face, both men and women with regards to hair loss and hair growth is the slow rate of noticeable change we see, for better or worse concerning the condition of our hair appearance.

Without getting too technical, our hair cells regenerate at an extremely slow rate when compared to other parts of our bodily, such as, our skin, stomach or brain cells, for  example.

On top of this slow pace, it also takes at least 60-90 days to “see” noticeable results in terms of new hair growth as the hair follicle lies well beneath the surface of the scalp.

Here’s the kicker, to see noticeable hair loss, this takes a much longer time, even years!

So if your giving a new hair growth product a try, the best thing you can do is give it time, at least 3-6 months of continued use.

If you want to prevent hair loss, the sooner you take steps the better and please don’t wait till you see noticeable hair thinning, as this would imply your hair loss has been developing for years.

We at Follicle Fuel have stated prior, most of us neglect our hair and are often clueless as to how we can prevent hair loss or prevent our hair from aging, which are the same thing.

Upon the age of twenty to thirty we recommend both men and women start the prevention of hair loss by taking Beta Sitosterol to keep DHT in check. This will certainly help you prevent hair loss but will not offer help with your hair growth.

For continued hair growth it is necessary to supply your hair with critical herbal extracts known for hair regrowth, such as Eclipta Alba, Ligustrum Fruit, Silica from Bamboo and MSM, sulfur for beautiful, glossy hair.

All that being said, Follicle Fuel makes it all very easy for you, within our formula you will find the necessary ingredients for preventing hair loss and promoting hair growth.









Hair Growth and How to Grow Your Hair Longer


Just kidding, but in a way I’m not.

Women and men who want to grow their hair longer most times fall into the pitfall of getting too many trims, negating their hair growth results.

As we all know now, cutting your hair has no effect on increasing the speed at which your hair grows.

Live with the dead ends as long as you can without trimming them. And if you must trim the ends, cut off as little as possible.

Drink plenty of water and eat a good supply of protein daily, take your Follicle Fuel and forget about it, your hair will grow like a weed.

Please avoid any type of hair extensions! We can’t tell you how many times a week we receive emails from people who are in desperate need of hair help due to their hair extensions causing Traction Alopecia. This is a devastating type of hair loss and can be reversed if properly dealt with.

Truth is, Follicle Fuel is an excellent hair growth product for Traction Alopecia and for anyone trying to prevent hair loss and grow out their hair.

The herbs Eclipta and Ligustrum have had tremendous results with hair restoration and regrowing fuller, thicker hair. The trick is to use the correct balance of both herbs together for best hair growth results.

Beta Sitosterol is derived from plants and vegetables and keeps our hair safe from DHT, this let’s us keep our hair in a longer growing phase.

All the best with your hair growth.






How to Make Your Hair Grow Faster

In traditional Chinese medicine black sesame seeds are used to stimulate new hair growth and restore hair to it’s original color.

Black sesame seeds are high in trace minerals, such as, copper and zinc. Copper is essential for the proper functioning of the body, including healthy hair growth. If we are copper deficient, this can lead to hair loss and thinning.

Dietary induced copper and zinc deficiency is extremely rare due to the plentiful supply in the diet and the high efficiency of absorption.

Copper maintains hair color and delays graying of hair. Zinc is critical in the production of new hair cells and the maintenance of the oil secreting glands of the scalp that make hair shiny.

Copper is the third most abundant dietary trace metal after iron and zinc. It is a component of many enzymes and is needed to produce red and white blood cells. The body also needs copper to utilize iron efficiently and it is thought to be important for infant growth, brain development, the immune system, strong bones and hair.

Essential trace amounts of copper and zinc are found in medicinal herbs, such as the herb extracts found in Follicle Fuel’s formula. Most herbal extracts from a food base source, as found in Follicle Fuel, supplies you with all the trace minerals you need for proper hair growth.

But if you want to make your hair grow faster, adding extra black sesame to your diet may be a big help.




Hair Growth Nutrients Save Your Money

Macro and Micro Nutrients are critical elements needed for proper hair growth and health.

Please don’t waste your time and money on purchasing hair growth supplements that offer “macro” nutrients, such as, essential fatty acids, protein, amino acids.

Macro nutrients are best if derived from our diet, so supplementation of these nutrients are not needed and as a matter of fact, to obtain enough macro nutrients we have to receive them form our diet. Vitamins found in pill and capsule form, can not offer an adequate amount of macro nutrients your hair needs to make effective, positive hair growth changes.

So next time you pick up a hair supplement at your local vitamin store, read the ingredients. The chances are pretty good the product will be a repackaged “Multi Vitamin”, containing B Vitamins, Marine Protein, Cysteine and Essential Fatty Acids. Upon reading the ingredients it’s best to put the product back down on the shelf and walk out the store, cause once you get home, there’s plenty of the above mentioned “stuff” in your refrigerator…such as, Fish, Eggs, Olive Oil and Bread!

More importantly than Macro Nutrients, you hair needs Micro Nutrients for continued growth and preventing hair loss. These trace elements are lacking in most western diets and much be obtained outside our diet daily for continued hair growth and luster.

Micro nutrients are best derived from herbs, which supply our hair with trace nutrients, such as, silica and plant sterols.

Silica keeps our hair strong and shinny. Follicle Fuel’s formula contains silica from the Bamboo plant which is over 10 times more potent than other forms of silica. Our formula also includes Non GMO Beta Sitosterol, a plant sterol derived from vegetables.

Plant sterols provide defense for our hair from hormone DHT, and as we know, this hormone attacks our hair and causes it to fall out and age.

Here at Follicle Fuel we welcome your comments and questions. We also welcome informed consumers and always ask you to compare competing brands and formulas.

We ask this as we are sure you will be impressed with the ingredients Follicle Fuel has chosen, offering you the most complete and most effective hair supplement available!








How to Grow Your Hair Faster

Our hair is the most neglected part of our bodies. We take our hair for granted and don’t realize there is a problem till after years of neglect.

Hair also is the last part of our bodies that receive their required nutrients. The most important organs are first to receive nutrients.

That being said, it’s important for us to supply our hair daily with needed nutrients for continued growth. There are special nutrients that will help us grow our hair faster, such as, Sulfur.

Sulfur is found in many foods, though heat and processing destroy the much needed sulfur. Follicle Fuel contains a rich supply of sulfur from MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane), known as the Beauty Vitamin.

The sulfur found in MSM is needed for healthy collagen and keratin, which is ideal for hair growth. There is belief that MSM helps to increase the hair growth phase.

In addition to MSM, daily intake of silica is vital for increasing our hair growth and keeping our hair silky and flexible.

We incorporate into our formula silica from the bamboo plant which is over 10 times more absorbed that other forms of silica!

The reason why we so many people with hair challenges more and more as the years pass has much to do with lack of essential nutrients they receive from their diet.

To obtain the best hair possible eat as much whole foods as possible, that means less processed foods.

So, eat your veggies and your BAMBOO!
