Whey Protein shakes
 
Here is a good article:
Whey Protein For Follicles | LIVESTRONG.COM

I personally swear by this - I drink two whey protein shakes a day & my hair grows more than half an inch per month. It's so good for your whole body too.

Fmasuhr 04-15-2012 03:11 PM

this is a good idea, ive been thinking bout it, cause my hair is protein sensitive so i cant put it in my hair, maybe drinking it will help?

LISA LISA 04-27-2012 12:02 PM

March 25th measure in = 33 inches.
April 27th measure in = 34 inches! :blob3:

I gained an entire inch last month. I attribute it to the whey protein shake I drink consistently five times per week (M-F).

Fmasuhr 04-29-2012 12:29 PM

woow that is great! im protein sensitive so that might be a great idea for me to strengthen my hair and get the protein in it.

I drink a whey protein shake each morning, doctor's orders, and I also get a LOT of growth. I just cut back from knee length to tailbone+ length in January, and I'm already past the butt again 5 months later. With microtrims. We were discussing this on another forum (specifically for the care of long hair), and came to the conclusion that these shakes really do seem to make your hair grow faster.

How do you guys like the flavour, though? I find myself having to be pretty creative with using fresh berries and flax seeds to be able to make them drinkable EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING. :laughing6:

Good! This makes me happy! I love drinking whey protein shakes after working out! If they are good for protein sensitives than even better!!

I think they're downright yucky - I have to mix them with OJ and "Fear Factor" them down - then chase with more OJ! So worth the pain though! :laughing4:

Oh, they are good for hair growth? :) I drink one of those whey packets after some soccer workouts to gain weight (does anyone know a good healthy way to gain more muscle weight, btw?). I find them kind of expensive compared to other drink mixes, but not too bad.

The taste is pretty awful though. I just try to convince myself that they actually do taste like berries. :laughing9:

I guess I will continue drinking them, and when I can't afford them...eat broccoli?

Wow I have a whey protein mass gainer but I bought it to gain weight. Unfortunately I don't even drink it because it's so nasty. But I guess I have to work around that since it would help me gain an extra 1/2 inch of hair.

I have a Strawberry Banana powder anyone know how I can make that tasty?

@LISA LISA
Thank you for sharing this with us. I read that article and I'm totally sold. I'm buying some tomorrow along with the rest of the vitamins I need to purchase. What brand do you buy? I saw it at walmart, they have chocolate flavor. I hate eating/drinking nasty stuff but I want classic or fairytail hair so I'll figure it out (plus I always wanted to see if I had the guts to do something from fear factor).

lovely_eirene 06-25-2012 04:32 AM

I'm gonna buy some of this later today (not just for growth, but because it looks like it'll make a quick and easy breakfast)! I used it before years ago, but I'm with you on the taste - no matter what brand I bought, the taste was vile. It probably goes without saying, but it helps a lot if you mix it in milk or juice rather than water!

MrsBachemin 06-25-2012 01:23 PM

I buy vanilla flavor and mix it in a blender with juice, a few ice cubes, a banana, some strawberries, and any other berries I might have handy. It's always delicious! I don't know if I can drink 2 a day, but I'll definitely start drinking one big one daily if it'll help me get past shoulder length curly!

Thanks for the tip!

I finally figured out a way to drink these.
 
After my soccer practice this morning, I held my nose and gulped some down. :tongue7: I could still taste the berry flavor, but the bitter ick was gone. It's an old trick and a little uncomfortable, but for me, it is a lot better than feeling like I want to hurl what I pour down my throat!

MrsBachemin 06-27-2012 06:50 AM

This morning I mixed my protein in a full glass of milk and added some strawberry syrup. It tasted like a strawberry milkshake! Delicious!

Whey does a nasty number on my stomach. I'm not sure what it is about it that upsets me. Do you think it would work with rice protein shakes? I usually use Life Basics Pea, Rice, Hemp, and Chia Seed powder.

I don't mind the taste of protein shakes, but to make it even healthier, usually I put in a handful of spinach, half a banana, some berries, and a few drops of stevia.

Is it possible you are intolerant or allergic to dairy?

Possible, yes. But other things don't affect me like that. From what I've read about whey, some people do have problems with it that aren't dairy-related. Some think it's related to the high level of magnesium in whey.

That's just how Whey Protein is. When trying to find a decent protein shake I looked in several mass gaining and body building forums for men and women and virtually everyone had issues with the gassy feeling no matter the product they used.

I finally started drinking mine this morning! I bought this Body Fit Smoothie...

Body Fit Whey Protein Smoothie | Holland and Barrett

To my surprise, it actually has fruit pieces in the powder! I was a little concerned about the sugar content (9.5g per 45g serving!), but since I don't eat sweet stuff other than fruit, I'm letting that slide. It actually tastes good with only milk! It's maybe even a bit too sweet for me. Still, can't wait to see what it does for my hair :D
