Hair Vitamin Vixen

While often times naturalistas discuss the importance of finding phenomenal products to use externally to increase the well-being of their natural coif, equally and possibly what is more important is what you consume internally.  To aid in the overall health and care of your tresses, including a hair vitamin to your daily diet regimen proves to be extremely beneficial. 

Above, I've displayed a picture of my go-to hair vitamin of choice.  I purchase them at Trader Joe's for about $5.00.   It is a MultiVitamin Mineral that supports nails, hair and skin.  There are 100 tablets so it lasts me about one month (you need to take three per day). 

THEE most important thing about taking vitamins is CONSISTENCY.  I've read it takes AT LEAST 3 consistent months of taking any vitamin to see any true results and for it to thoroughly integrate into your body's system.  So keep at it!  Lastly, there are a few stellar vitamins that you want to see included in the hair vitamin that you select.  They are considered the all-star vitamin supplements that BEST benefit your hair:

  • Vitamin A: assists in the production of natural oils (sebum) that prevent dry scalp 
  • Vitamin B6: is a component in the creation of melanin; aids in giving hair its color
  • Vitamin B12: prevents hair loss
  • Vitamin C: an anti-oxidant; helps improve the overall health of hair
  • Vitamin E: improves scalp circulation which stimulates faster hair growth
  • Biotin: produces keratin; aids in the prevention of hair loss
  • Niacin (B3): improves the blood circulation (which carries oxygen) at your scalp
  • Inositol: keeps the cells of hair follicles healthy
  • Pantothenic Acid (B5): prevents graying and hair loss
