i read in a fashion magazine about ways to help grow out your hair and one of the suggestions was eating seaweed as it stimulates something that helps grow thick hair (i wish i remember what it was exactly). thankfully i love sushi (cali rolls which are wrapped in seaweed) and so i started eating lots of it, at my local supermarket they sell fresh sushi and it is actually reaaly really good!! and so i ate about 1-2 servings a day for a couple of weeks and i didnt really notice or pay atytention at the time because i was just enjoying my sushi lol but when i went to get my hair trimmed 2 days ago, the girl was amazed at low much my hair grew since my last trim! and im thinking that maybe it had to do with the sushi...so first thing tomorrow i am off to pick some up! :) i just thought id share my discovery with all of you incase any of you are sushi fans :flowers:

I was looking for hair supplements the other time and I saw that some of them have seaweed too. :smile:

I know of hair and skin products that have seaweed in them. I have not thought about eating it too.

You can make a great soup with dried wakame too. I didn't like the one with fish broth powder (miso), but it's good with egg noodles and chicken broth. Watch out it really expands a lot! I do like the miso soup when I go get sushi with my older son, but mine didn't taste the same.

Miso paste is from fermented soy beans, and usually doesn't contain fish.

Maybe I should start eating the sushi people's seaweed salad when at work. Yeah...we have a sushi part of the store I work at...made fresh too and they will make whatever I want.:razz:

Wow, I'm happy to hear that seaweed increases hair growth - just bought a pack of Nori from a health food shop recently, now there's even more incentive to use it!

Sorry for the confusion. My miso soup recipe calls for 1 tsp of dashi-no-moto which is a fish powder. Got them confused. Also I checked my cookbook and wakame is actually an algae so I'm not sure if it would convey the same benefits as seaweed. It is very tasty.

Hi, another opinion here. I found that Kelp made my hair grow also. I should go back to taking it - don't know why I stopped. Kelp, algae, seaweed are great for the skin as masks. The mouse mask that i used stopped production and I've not found another yet.

Wow... I should look into a seaweed or kelp supplement. Who knew?

I'm thankful that my boyfriend's mom puts seaweed in lots of stuff, then insists that I eat more :)

Seaweed? Thats cool. Did they say if it was better to have supplement or the real seaweed.

And oh... I love sushi too. Now I have added incentive to eat sushi. =)
