Eggs are high in protein and fatty acids, which helps the hair grow longer. Whip two egg yolks with olive oil, and comb the mixture through wet hair. Leave this on for 15 minutes, and then wash the hair. A whole egg whipped helps strengthen the hair. Apply this in the same manner.

Bananas are rich in potassium and vitamins E, A and C. Mash a ripe banana until it's smooth. Massage the pulp into the scalp and hair, and cover it with a plastic bag. Leave this for up to 45 minutes before shampooing it out.

Use avocado and coconut oil in conjunction with each other to promote hair growth. Heat the coconut oil in the microwave for 15 seconds. Massage the warm oil into the hair, stopping 2 inches from the end. Mash a ripe avocado, and massage this into the ends of the hair. Leave both mixtures on for 15 minutes before shampooing it out. For thicker hair, omit the coconut oil. Instead, mash the avocado with a ripe banana. Apply the pulp to the hair and scalp, leaving it on for 15 minutes. Wash and condition the hair as usual.

Fenugreek seeds are good for both length and thickness. Soak the seeds in warm water overnight. Process them into a fine paste, and apply this to the hair and scalp. Leave it on for 30 minutes before shampooing it out.
