The best supplements for hair growth are proven to stimulate growth and prevent hair loss. Adding natural vitamins and trace minerals to your diet will benefit the condition of your hair. You can also use hair growth products such as shampoos or conditioners if they contain Biotin, Vitamins A, D and E which encourage hair growth.
What Causes Hair Loss
Hair loss can occur due to medications, autoimmune deficiencies, stress, or over processing the hair. Hormonal imbalances that occur in women after menopause can cause hair loss. Any medicine that interacts with the hormone level can cause thinning hair. Any allergies to dairy products, gluten, soy, or preservatives found in canned or pre-prepared foods can cause receding hairlines, follicle loss, or patches of hair loss. The lack of rest and a poor diet can also cause hair loss.
What You Can Do To Reverse Hair Loss
Good health and beauty starts from the inside and radiates out. In addition to adopting a healthy lifestyle with a diet that includes whole foods and raw vegetables. You can add natural supplements to your diet by taking them in pill form or in hair care products formulated to stimulate hair growth.
Adopting A Diet To Improve Hair Health
You should begin by taking a good multivitamin that contains antioxidants, Vitamins A,C, E, B complexes, with the trace minerals Magnesium, Calcium, Zinc, and Selenium. Avoiding trans-fatty oils found in most margarine, processed foods and commercially fried foods, plus, avoiding stimulants such as coffee alcohol and tobacco will improve your overall health. And, drinking the recommended 6 to 8 glasses of water daily will help flush your system of toxins that contribute to hair loss.
Vitamins That Stimulate Hair Growth

Some hair care products contain Vitamin C to improve the shine of hair. You can take a table of Vitamin C tablet containing 500 – 1,000 mg twice daily to improve your hair.
Vitamin D is needed to prevent thinning hair. When we have a sufficient amount of Vitamin D in our systems we have sufficient hair growth. The vitamin is absorbed into our body from sunlight but most people have low levels of Vitamin D and need to add it to their diets.
Vitamin E is a fat soluble vitamin applied to the scalp to stimulate new hair growth by bringing blood to the hair follicles when massaged. We can add the vitamin to our diets by eating nuts, wheat germ, seeds, or tomatoes.
Vitamin B helps stimulate our hair follicles. Hair follicles are the most important part of the hair because it takes in the nourishment to stimulate growth. A vitamin containing B1, B2, B3, and B5 will nourish the hair and can reverse damage caused by stress.
Vitamin A prevents hair loss by supplying the body with Retinoids which stimulate hair follicles. Vitamin A is found in dark green vegetables.
