Hair love is like no other relationship. It's something that actually grows with you so it really does run deep. When you love your locks, you'll go to any extent to ensure they are shiny and healthy. For you, that has always included expensive hair spas, luxurious hair care products and expert tress treatments. But what about vitamins for your hair? As your skin and hair largely depend on what you consume, it's important to focus on what goes in your body too. If you want healthy and luscious long hair, these 5 vitamins can help you get the best hair ever.
5 Vitamins To Take For Healthy, Long Hair
Make these vitamins a part of your diet and we're certain your tresses will thank you for it.
1. Vitamin A
You're definitely aware of the benefits vitamin A has for skin; retinol is so well-loved. The same goes for hair too! Vitamin A is said to encourage the natural production of sebum, which in turn can help prevent breakage of hair.
Biotin is one of the most popular vitamins for hair health. Also known as vitamin B7, biotin works at a cellular level to promote hair thickness and growth. Lacking biotin can lead to hair thinning.
3. Vitamin C
Another vitamin that you've definitely heard of in skincare circles. Vitamin C extends itself to locks as well but not for its brightening properties. Vitamin C helps increase absorption of iron and adequate iron is essential to prevent hair loss. It also helps build collagen in the body.
4. Vitamin E
Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant and works by promoting good circulation and maintaining a healthy scalp, which in turn helps hair grow well and strong.
5. Vitamin D
Vitamin D is a great choice for healthy bone development and it also works wonders for the hair as it stimulates the growth of new hair follicles.
