 Today we are talking about 3 Vitamins that are essential to healthy, happy hair.  Of course there’s many supplements, products, procedures, and even surgeries to combat hair loss, but today we are talking about 3 vitamins that directly affect the health of your hair.

 

Vitamin A

 

Every Cell Needs Vitamin A to grow.  A lack of Vitamin A can cause blindness and other serious health concerns.  Ingesting Vitamin A and applying it topically has plenty of positive effects.

 Regarding hair, Vitamin A is responsible for keeping our scalp nice and moist which leads to strong healthier hair growth.  

Did you know our hair is the fastest growing tissue on our bodies?  There is a lot of genetic factors that are at play when looking at hair volume, and growth.  Because of this we need to control what we can and take advantage of foods rich in Vitamin A.

 

Best foods for sources of Vitamin A:

  • Carrots
  • Broccoli
  • Eggs
  • Dairy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vitamin B

 

Vitamin B is also known as Biotin: One of the best supplements for your hair.  There are eight total B-Vitamins. Biotin works to provide oxygen and nutrients to your scalp.  Our body naturally produces Biotin, but in order to see the full effects of Vitamin B7 we should be consuming Vitamin B foods.

 

Best Vitamin B foods:

  • Meat
  • Fish
  • Dark, Leafy Greens

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vitamin C

 

Vitamin C produces collagen which aids in hair follicle structure.  Collagen also is used to fight off some of the stress we put on ourselves.  Plenty of Shampoos use Vitamin C to aid in breaking apart some of the mineral build on our scalp.

  • Sweet Yellow Peppers, Chilli Peppers
  • Oranges, Kiwis, and Strawberries
