When your hair falls out it can be a big blow to your confidence. I know what that feels like. I have struggled with my hair falling out many times in my life, especially while I postpartum. If your hair is falling out, you’re not alone. Since so many women experience hair loss, I constantly get asked what can you do promote healthier hair. More recently, women have been asking me about hair vitamins and healthy hair. So, in today’s article, I am going to share with you 4 reasons why women take hair vitamins for healthier hair.
#1) Helps with Hair Loss
Hair loss is something that many women will experience. In fact, some research suggest that over 50% of women will experience hair loss. Hair loss is something that women of all ages can experience and we know that nearly 40% of women start to have some hair loss by 40. When you start losing hair it can be tough. It can impact your confidence, make you feel not as beautiful, and can even contribute to depression. The good news is that there are many vitamins that you can take that have been associated with helping to prevent hair loss, such as vitamin B and biotin. Without the proper intake, vitamin B and biotin deficiencies may lead to hair loss. Folic acid and vitamin B12 are also important because they can also help with preventing hair loss. Most hair vitamins include vitamin B, biotin, and vitamin B12. As a result, they provide an easy way to consume these important vitamins to help promote healthy hair.
#2) Slows Hair from Aging
To understand how hair ages, you must first understand what free radicals are. Free radicals are unstable and highly reactive molecules that are naturally produced in your body and they can be produced during exposure to toxins like UV light, air pollution, and tobacco smoke. Too many free radicals in your body can have negative effects on your health and even your hair. Free radicals can stop your hair from growing and cause it to age. To combat free radicals, you can take in more vitamin C. Most hair vitamins have vitamin C, which helps to slow your hair from aging.
#3) Promotes Stronger Hair
Hair vitamins are an important part of a healthy hair care regimen. In other words, they should be taken along with using the best hair care products, hair oils, a healthy diet, getting enough sleep and water, just to name a few. However, hair vitamins promote hair growth because they have ingredients like biotin, vitamins A, C, D, E, B12. These vitamins are associated with growing hair, and doing so, more strongly.
#4) Creates & Stimulates Hair Follicles
Studies have shown that vitamin D receptors can help restore hair growth and create new hair follicles. Vitamin D is found in foods, sunlight, but also in most hair vitamins. In addition, hair vitamins can help with stimulating existing hair follicles. When your hair follicles don’t receive the stimulation they need, it can impact the growth of your hair. Most hair vitamins contain ingredients that can help stimulate hair follicles such as zinc. Zinc helps to repair and build hair tissue, it also helps the oil glands that surround hair follicles, which can help your hair to grow.
I always suggest that you consult with your doctor or a medical professional before you make any major changes to your diet or start taking supplements. As I said previously, the goal is the have healthy, stronger, and longer hair, which requires a healthy hair care regimen and routine. And hair vitamins can be an important part of your healthy hair care regimen and routine.
