You just cut off 10 inches of your hair so you could get the new shoulder length cut everyone has been getting this season. After a couple weeks of your new hair, though, you just want your length back. This happens to nearly every girl multiple times in her life. Here are five vitamins you can take that will help you get your length and strength back quickly.
This is my #1 recommended vitamin to take if you're trying to grow your hair out. Biotin helps produce amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. As most of you know, hair consists of different proteins, one of these being keratin. The faster you are able to produce building blocks for this protein, the faster your hair will grow.
Remember how our hair is made of protein. Well, MSM helps our body make collagen, which is one of the body's most plentiful proteins! This will therefore help our hair grow long and healthy. MSM also helps to repair tissue of cells that may have been damaged which will help your hair grow faster and healthier by increasing the production of hair cells!
Iron delivers oxygen to your cells, helping your hair grow. Iron is needed to produce hemoglobin, which is a protein that helps red blood cells deliver oxygen throughout your whole body. Iron deficiency can actually cause hair loss. When your body doesn't have enough iron, it uses the iron it does have to send oxygen to support vital functions instead of other functions like keeping your hair intact. 10% of women have iron deficiency. If you are always tired or have heavy periods, iron deficiency could very well be to blame. Take an iron supplement and try to eat foods rich in iron such as spinach, beets, prunes, and chicken. This will help increase your iron, helping you lose less hair and grow healthier hair faster.
4. Vitamin B-Complex
Vitamin B-Complex is made up of the eight B vitamins including B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, and B12. We've already talked about one B Vitamin, Biotin (B7), essential for hair growth, but the rest of the B Vitamins are equally as important. B1, B2, and B3 help contribute to the nourishment of hair follicle cells. B5 and B12 prevent hair loss and help give your hair it's flexibility and shine. Take a Vitamin B-Complex to receive the benefits of all the B vitamins.
5. Vitamin C
Most people just think of Vitamin C as being good for your immune system and helping to not get the cold or flu that have been going around. However, Vitamin C is responsible for creating and maintaining collagen. It is an antioxidant which strengthens your blood vessels. It also gives your skin it's elasticity and strength. Your body also uses Vitamin C to build collagen, which as we talked about, is crucial for hair growth. Vitamin C also helps your body to absorb Iron, which as we talked about is another important building block of hair.
As you can see, there are many vitamins that are crucial to making your hair grow faster and healthier. Take a multi-vitamin every day that includes these vitamins. To really help your hair grow faster and healthier, however, try and eat a healthy, well-balanced diet to get these vitamins from your food and not just a pill. You will not only see the benefits of these vitamins in your hair, but also in your body's overall health.
