Ahhh juicing, my newish favorite pass time, I’m a Jack Lalanne girl myself, R.I.P, and my juicer* is permanently affixed to my counter top for something fresh every other day or so.
I try to make enough juice to last two days because I kind of need that extra day to get over washing all those parts on the juicer* the day before.
Many of us take supplements* to help boost our hair growth, and if you check, most the ingredients in the pills can be found in the fruits and vegetables found in your produce isle.
There’s really nothing special in your recently purchased ‘Super Gro’ hair pills, they are simply synthetic versions of what mother nature gave us naturally to nourish our bodies, hair included.
With that said what if we could make a juice that could replace all the drugs? Depending on your ingredients, there are some specific juice recipes that are totally geared towards the health of hair so since sharing is caring here are a few deliciously simple juicy recipes that can replace your hair growth supplements*.
Hair Growth Magic Juice
5 Large Carrots, ends trimmed
This recipe is magical because of the carrots and the cucumber, not only are these ingredients refreshing, but cucumber is nature’s natural silicon and sulfur* source that is specifically geared towards hair growth and health. Carrots have vitamin A* which is essential for growth and overall hair health as well. The apples add sweetness and even though carrots are pretty sweet when juiced, it is a ‘special’ kind of sweet so adding an apple helps take the taste to a new level.
Healthy Tresses Elixir
4 Large Carrots, ends trimmed
1 Large Tomato
A common ingredient for most of these recipes will be vitamin A*, found in carrots and tomatoes it contains antioxidants that condition and moisturize the scalp. It also fights free radicals that break down the hair making it weaker and it adds body and thickness to your hair. In addition to the vitamin A found in tomatoes, they also contain lycopene which fights cancerous cells which is great not only for your hair but your overall health.
I am a HUGE fan of juicing and people forget the amount of money that you spend on supplements could buy easily 2-3 months worth of fruits and veg to juice. I really don’t get it. Its not just good for your hair but juicing is great for your general health.

I had severe acne about 2 years ago, which is about when I decided to stop relaxers..I started juicing daily. Carrots and garlic were always used and then whatever else. My hair grew soo quick and juicing stopped my acne in it’s tracks! I am a juicing fan for life!
