Length is a concern for many women when it comes to their hair whether its natural or relaxed. I'm not a doctor or nutritionist so I need to research to understand the way the hair grows and how I could help. The vitamins that have been linked to promotion of hair growth and/or elimination of hair loss are
- Vitamin A or beta carotene:
- Vitamin B to include B12 and B6 and biotin.
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin E
- Amino acids
- Zinc (However, too much can cause hair loss)
- Multi-daily vitamin
Many have an unrealistic expectation in regards to the speed and the time line for growth results. Normal hair growth for individuals is 1 cm to one-half inch a month and it may takes 2 to 3 months to see an increase due to vitamin/supplement mineral intake.
Ive increased my intake of vitamins and minerals due to my allergies to many of the essential foods like fish, beans & fruits...I must take flaxseed oil to receive my Omega 3s, potassium supplement (no bananas) & a high potent multi vitamin for the others....I have noticed many changes in my body & hair but remember I found my deficiencies! So have a blood test and add what you need not what you just read about! What have you discovered?
