Hair loss and thinning is a common and frustrating problem for both men and women. The American Academy of Dermatology notes that you can lose hair for a number of reasons, including genetics, hormone imbalances, illness, medications, and diet. Getting the right nutrients may not prevent hair loss, but it is important for healthy hair. Alfalfa sprout juice combined with other vegetable juices may help improve hair growth. Alfalfa is a legume that is rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, folic acid, zinc, silicon, vitamins A, B complex, C, E and K and other nutrients that are important for your hair and skin.

Step 1

Cut off the roots of the alfalfa sprouts and remove any dead or decaying leaves and stems. Place the alfalfa sprout in a sieve with fine holes and wash them with warm water.

Step 2

Set up the juicer and turn it on. Place a handful of alfalfa sprouts into the juicer's feeding chute and press the plunger down slowly but firmly until it is fully compressed.

Step 3

Add another bunch of alfalfa sprouts into the feeder and continue juicing. You will need a large amount of alfalfa to produce one glass of juice. Use at least 15 to 20 hand-size bunches of alfalfa sprouts.

Step 4

Combine the alfalfa juice with equal parts carrot and lettuce juice. Use dark green lettuce such as Romaine for its higher nutrient content.
