Seasonal Fruits and Veggies for Hair Growth: Summer Edition

Shedavi is all about plant-based powers. One look at the label of your favorite Shedavi product will show you that it’s vegan, natural, and pure. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that we recommend using plants in your diet as a catalyst towards your hair growth goals. Eating seasonally ensures that your produce is as fresh and nutrient filled as possible, so we put together a grocery list for the season. Add these foods to your diet for a summer glow up.



This leafy green is packed with iron, which helps to prevent hair loss and excessive shedding. It’s easy to incorporate spinach into any meal. Sneak it into a smoothie or omelette for breakfast.  Have a salad for lunch. Saute it as a side at dinner. It’s good for your hair follicles and your waistline.

Shelling Beans

Protein is key to long and strong hair. Lucky for you, shelling beans are in season during the summer. Add these colorful beans to salads and summer stews.


Few things taste as good as a ripe strawberry. Beyond their delicious taste, strawberries are rich in Vitamin C. These berries support the body’s production of collagen, which is necessary for hair growth. Pro-tip: Vitamin C helps your body absorb iron. Instead of eating strawberries by themselves, try a strawberry and spinach salad for maximum impact.


Many of us enjoy avocados year round, but they’re at their peak in summer time. They have plenty of Omega 3, which helps your scalp stay moisturized. Avocado is a flexible food. Let it make your smoothies creamy, steal the show on top of toast, or blend into the flavors of a Mexican dish.


Like strawberries, tomatoes are a source of Vitamin C. Incorporate tomatoes into the savory dishes that strawberries aren’t suited for. Using tomatoes as a garnish is an easy way to sneak nutrients into your diet while also elevating the taste of your food.


Many varieties of carrots are available year round, but the rarer versions of carrots are at their peak in the summer. If you care about the aesthetics of your food, pick up some pretty carrots, and ‘gram away. Your body will thank you for the extra dose of beta-carotene, which supports the body’s production of its natural conditioner, sebum.

These foods, plus your daily dose of the Hair Growth Starter Bundle, will bring you that much closer to your hair length goals. Show us how you use Shedavi products using #shedavi for a chance to be featured.
