Over the past few years, hair vitamins have become a popular beauty trend. In this blog, we answer your questions about the benefits that these supplements offer and more.
What can hair vitamins do for my hair?
Hair vitamins work to improve your hair from within. When the follicles are starved of nutrients, effects include slow growth, poor condition and excess shedding. Providing your body with a consistent supply of vitamins and minerals helps to sustain normal follicle activity and stimulate healthy hair growth. Most adults can benefit from using hair supplements, however, it is important to seek expert advice if hair loss is a specific concern. Some conditions, such as androgenetic alopecia and alopecia areata, may require medical treatment.
How long do hair vitamins take to work?
The hair’s natural growth cycles mean that hair vitamins will take time to produce results. You can expect to take a supplement for three months before you start noticing its effects on your strands. Continuing to take the hair vitamins will improve and maintain the result.
What ingredients should you look for when choosing hair vitamins?
When choosing a hair vitamin, you’ll want to make sure that it contains nutrients that are focused on hair and skin health. One of the star ingredients to be aware of is biotin, which helps to nourish the hair and promotes thicker growth. B-complex vitamins, zinc and folic acid are other essential components to look out for.
What time of day should I take my hair vitamins?
Many dieticians recommend taking hair vitamins in the morning, before eating, for improved absorption. The most important thing is to remember to take your vitamin every day, whenever best fits into your routine.
