If you’re a hair enthusiast like myself, then you’ve heard about all of the hair vitamins on the market that claim to promote hair growth and health. Personally I haven’t tried any of the commercial vitamins. However, I have taken Biotin in the past and I resumed this past week. I have been using Biotin on and off for a while and I have seen wonderful results. See my progress in “Biotin: The Hair Drug“.
Aside from Biotin, there are several vitamins on the market marketed solely to consumers for the purpose of hair growth and health. Some of the vitamins on the market are:
Treasured Locks Hair Growth Supplement
Natrol Skin Hair Nails
Nature’s Bounty Hair and Skin Vitamins
Nature’s Bounty Vitamins for the Hair
NuHair Hair Regrowth for Women
These vitamins are marketed to women who either want to increase their hair growth or to women who are experiencing hair loss and want to reverse it, usually older women.
While some women have had great success with these vitamins and experienced wonderful results, some have also suffered from side effects. Some of the side effects include hair loss, acne, digestive problems, increased libido, urine increase, weight fluctuations and/or appetite changes. Again, if you try these vitamins, you may not experience these side effects. However, it is not uncommon for women to suffer from these issues, especially during the first few weeks that their bodies are adjusting to the new vitamins. Therefore, if you do try these vitamins and suffer from these side effects, this is normal and will likely only last for the first month or so.
If you’ve been thinking about trying hair vitamins but are hesitant, according to this article there are four natural, food-based vitamins you can add to your diet to promote healthy hair and hair growth: Vitamin A (carrots), Vitamin B Complex (spinach) and Vitamin E (capsules), Folic Acid (citrus fruits). I recently started making green smoothies (check out my recipes on Instagram #curlsandmoGS) and I have been adding a lot of foods that are high in these vitamins. I am excited to continue on my health and healthy hair journeys, incorporate these natural vitamins and continue taking Biotin to see how much stronger and healthier my hair can be.
Have you tried any of these vitamins? If so, what have been your results? Were you satisfied? Please share below.
