Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate : a Mild Surfactant for Baby Bath Products & Shampoos
DISODIUM COCOAMPHODIACETATE : A Mild Surfactant for Baby Bath Products & Shampoos
DISODIUM COCOAMPHODIACETATE is an Extremely mild, amphoteric surfactant which is not defatting to the skin and also does not strip oils from hair. Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate is a moderate foamer and is recommended for sensitive skin, baby skin, facial products. For use in shampoos and body wash where optimum foam is desired, combine with another surfactant such as decyl glucoside and/or cocamidopropyl betaine for a mild high-foaming blend.
For Baby Shampoos a surfactant which is having a quality mild, amphoteric, foaming and cleansing agent that can reduce the overall irritation of products is required. DISODIUM COCOAMPHODIACETATE is often used in sensitive skin formulations like baby shampoos, shampoos, bath and shower body washes, and facial products. It is compatible with anionic, non-ionic and most cationic systems.
In personal care /skin and hair care this coconut oil derived surfactant may be used with another surfactant, such as cocomidopropyl betaine or decyl glucoside to make a gentle high foam , high performance product. The Product is in appearance, a Gold viscous liquid with its pH 8.5 9.5 and a Customary Usage: 1% – 50% depending on the final application.
This product is used in many household and industrial applications too. It is stable over a broad pH range. Ideal for use in all types of industrial cleaners etc. since it aids in flash foaming and improves the foam stability in formulations. It is non-toxic and biodegradable. Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate is with an excellent toxicological profile.
Like many surfactants, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate is originally derived from coconut.

Chemical Name: Cocoamphocarboxyglycinate, disodium salt
CAS Registry Number: 068650-39-5

Synonyms: Cocoamphocarboxyglycinate oxide; Disodium cocoamphodiacetate; Cocoamphocarboxyglycinate; Coconut fatty acid, aminoethylethanolamine imidazoline, dicarboxymethylated, disodium salt; Cocoamphocarboxyglycinate, disodium salt; Imidazolium compounds, 1-(2-(carboxymethoxy)ethyl)-1-(carboxymethyl)-4,5-dihydro-2-norcoco alkyl, hydroxides, inner salts, disodium salts
In general, Baby shampoo is formulated so that it is less irritating to the eyes. Most contain sodium trideceth sulfate. Alternatively, baby shampoo may be formulated using other classes of surfactants, most notably non-ionics which are much milder than any charged anionics used.
Ideally, in Baby Shampoos the conventionally used anionic surfactant i.e. Sodium Laureth Sulfate is used at 10 to 15% levels and the major surfactant component is formed by Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate by using it at 20 to 25% levels. Other ingredients in a Baby Shampoo may include Cocoamidopropyl betaine. Glycerine, PEG 150 Distearates, Preservatives, Humectants & Conditioning Agents.
Most of the Leading Baby Shampoos are formulated without addition of Colors. As observed, they are light amber in appearance which is the natural color of the formulation. In case, where absolute color free shampoo is desired, another equivalent surfactant Disodium lauroamphoacetate is used. This product comes in very light yellowish clear liquid.

Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate is also used in Premium quality of Shampoos & Face Wash. Most of the Anionic surfactants such as Sodium laureth Sulfate, Ammonium Laureth Sulfate, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinates contains sulfate contents which is harsh in nature. These surfactants cause damage to hair strands & reduce the moisturisation properties of the shampoo. Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate being amphoteric and having no sulfate content if when used in combination with these anionic surfactants provides excellent results further it also enhances the moisturisation & conditioning properties of the finished shampoo. Hence, a range of Mild wash & bath products can be formulated with this product such as Baby Bath, Shower Gel, Face Wash, Liquid Hand Wash, 2 in 1 Shampoo Conditioners etc. The Product is also stable & compatible to various other ingredients which are conventionally used in Shampoos.
The Product is produced by some renowned organizations which are into complete varieties of surfactants for the cosmetic Industries.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    what is the best shampoo for healthy silky and smooth hair?
    overall whats the best shampoo to get the silky frizz free smooth healthy hiar? if it helps i have blond hair
    Also if you know of a great conitioner! i heard of the Aveno, panteen and Nexxus products are really good but what are the best?

    • ANSWER:
      When you wash your hair with one of those nutrient-rich shampoos, most of the nutrients and active ingredients in the product don’t actually end up in your hair, they wind up down the drain… along with all the money you spent on the shampoo. It is HOW you use to style your hair or what styling tools that damage the hair, and what chemicals you’re adding to the hair, not the shampoo or conditioner.

      Shiny hair comes from: Good genes. Good hair care. Good foods from Mother Nature not made my man like John Frieda or supplements found @ GNC. Those products can only do more harm than good.. You’ll get 12 responses, suggesting 12 different brands. What works for them, may not work for you! It’s all in how you manipulate the hair when you get out of the shower.

      I use the cheapest shampoo (no conditioner – we have soft water). I use Garnier for Normal Hair. No conditioner, have used them for over 15 years. We also have soft water. When traveling, I briefly rinse with bottled water.

      Washing less often, builds the natural oil your hair needs, to get them smoother, shinier, silkier, softer. Man-made products are just temporary, until you wash them again, and at the same time washing off the natural oil your hair NEEDS. Hair product just absorbs on your hair if they’re dry, like a sponge.

      The hair industry is a billion dollar business, they sell products that cleans & condition the hair. They also sell products that damage and causes hair loss. They also DO NOT give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss due to ‘abuse’.

      In Dunboyne Castle Hotel & Spa where we stayed in Ireland, they have hotel shampoos bottled together as Body Wash & Shampoo in one. Why not, they are meant to clean. In Dublin where we were staying, their body lotion buttery serum, are meant for body AND hair. These products are sold in their spas for much more than over the counter and they contain natural ingredients.
      I’ve been using whatever shampoos they have in all the luxury hotels (Ireland) and it did the same as if I washed my hair with over the counter brand. The only difference? I briefly rinse my hair with bottled water, to help condition the hair because their water is not the same as Oregon water, but they taste the same. My hair still feel soft, silky, shiny & smooth. So salon, or spa products or over the counter, my hair doesn’t change in texture.

      When you wash your hair with one of those nutrient-rich shampoos, most of the nutrients and active ingredients in the product don’t actually end up in your hair, they wind up down the drain… along with all the money you spent on the shampoo. It is HOW you use to style your hair or what styling tools that damage the hair, and what chemicals you’re adding to the hair, not the shampoo.
      Best advice from Hollywood’s well known hairstylist in the 80′s once said: “Keep foods in your mouth and hair products on your hair.”

      If you’ve straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all.
      Google: “Foods for Healthy Hair” – the website had moved, type it in.

      Growing healthy hair doesn’t come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more. If you’re in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you’re eating healthy foods. But when hair isn’t growing as fast, it’s because they’ve been tampered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . .

      Cutting your split ends yourself, spend 5-10 mins. on a sunny day so you can easily spot them, using a 2″ scissors, cut strand by strand, section by section, allowing new growth to take over. Then 2x a year, get a good hair cut. This won’t speed things up, but it will make the hair look healthier while it’s growing. Even healthy hair like mine get them, due to normal brushing & styling.

      Best answer comes from people with Avatars, showing their healthy shiny, soft, silky, smooth hair.

      Sources:
      I know hair. I have over 4 decades of hair know-how. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy hair down to my knees. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing in the 80′s & 90′s. I’ve known people in their 30′s whose hair stopped growing from ironing their hair in the 70′s.

  5. QUESTION:
    What is the best shampoo for healthy, long hair?
    i have thick, long, wavy hair and i want to grow it longer without split ends or frizz, and without drying it out, ive tried erbal essences shampoo but it dosn’t get my hair very clean, what would u suggest

    • ANSWER:
      Honestly, brand doesn’t matter. If you think Herbal Essences really doesn’t work for you, then try any other brand. Don’t spend too much $$ on shampoo. Shampoo for me is just “soap” for your hair. It cleans out the dirt and stuff, but also essential oils that your body naturally develops. My recommendation is to use small dabs of shampoo (the size of a dime on your palm) every other time you shower. Invest in a lot of conditioner (buy hydrating conditioner in bulk at Costco, Suave if you’re on a budget). Use a lot of it in your hair and leave it on for about two minutes. Dry your hair by running your fingers through it whilst detangling it. Use small amounts of leave-in conditioner and massage it in your hair. When it’s dry, you can flat iron your hair just enough to straighten it (if you need to) and use biosilk hair serum. You still might have to trim your hair in case split ends do come up.

    • ANSWER:

  8. QUESTION:
    Whats the best shampoo for healthy hair?
    i just wanted to get an idea of the most popular ones.

    • ANSWER:
      Any sulfate-free shampoos are great. They will say if they are sulfate-free right on the front of the bottle. I love, love, love, Bed Head products. They not only work well, but they smell soooo good.

      Any Sauve shampoos are horrible, there is a reason why they are so cheap. They are filled with detergents and causes a lot of stripping and build-up on the scalp, so stay away from all that.

      It is also a good idea to have a few different kinds of shampoos and conditioners, because your hair will get used to one shampoo and conditioner and will begin to look limp and lifeless. By switching up shampoos every few washes, your scalp will constantly be ‘surprised’ by the shampoo and you will get better results.

    What is the best shampoo for a clean healthy scalp?
    I dont know why but when I get my hair washed at the salon I can feel how clean my scalp is but when I wash my own hair I always have dry scalp and flaking. Is it the shampoo or the way I am rinsing my hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Both. Usually when you go to the salon, the barber scrubs your scalp, removing dead skin cells. But, the shampoo probably has something to do with it as well. But it is mostly the way you scrub your scalp and the strength you scrub it with.

  18. QUESTION:
    What is the best natural shampoo/conditioner for healthy hair, and why?
    Couple of questions. After I’ve learned about all the harsh chemicals in most shampoos and conditioners, like sodium lauryl sulfate and proplylene glycol, I’ve been on a mission to find good shampoos with natural ingredients. Then I do my research and some say that all those natural ingredients don’t do much either as your hair doesn’t “eat” and the herbal blends that supposedly nourish your hair just wash off. Then I find that most shampoo and conditioner ingredients, with or without harsh chemicals, have basically the same ingredients as each other. So basically everything is just damn marketing and propaganda and I don’t know what to believe. So what then makes the difference between conditioner and shampoo? So what magical concoction honestly make your hair healthy? Or does it all depend on the type of food you put in your body?

    • ANSWER:
      Yep. Its the food you eat and your lifestyle All the potions and lotions alone arnt going to live up to the promises of the folk that make this stuff. I have beautiful {not skiting} long black with a sprinkle of silver bits due to the fact that Im over 50. Its really thick strong and shiney.I dont believe in washing my hair every day, but once every 8 days. I dont believe in brushing the hell out of it.
      Im lucky to have been born with it.

  20. QUESTION:
    what is the best shampoo & conditioner to get hair healthy?
    What is the best to use because I might have to get my hair stripped because its black and its not suppose to be and stripping kills your hair I guess so what is the best product to use to restore healthy hair….I already have extremely healthy hair (ive been told my hair dressers) and I want it to stay like that so what are the best products to use?

    • ANSWER:
      Redken.. which was already taken lol… and dont use pantene, pantene smells great and makes it soft, but its only because it coats it with an unatural oil, and any hair dresser will tell ya its bad for your hair. I hope your hair survives the stripping, id try to avoid that at any cost. I had always had thick healthy hair, i dyed it black because im a moron and had to strip it back to the natural blonde… well i fried the shitt out of it! It is 13 years later and it still isnt as healthy as it was before then. My hair was like straw and falling out, i cried for i swear a year :( but everyones hair is different, so hopefully yours will take it like a champ.

  23. QUESTION:
    what is the best shampoo 2 make your hair healthy?
    I have thick wavy hair and although shampoos like pantene make it feel healthy the beatician said it is just build up. I want a shampoo that makes my hair healthy from the inside out

    • ANSWER:
      Pretty much all shampoo are the same it is the conditioner that is what is important because you are replenishing the moisture you just stripped out of your hair by shampooing it. I like Pantene, infusium, tresemme, aussie products, the new dove line is really good too, if you are looking for a cheaper brand. if you want a more expensive brand i highly recommend sebastian, nexxus, aveda they are all excellent products. If you want your hair to be healthy from the inside out start taking a multi vitamin if you aren’t already it will help, but ultimately your hair is dead so you can only fix what is on your head now from the outside in.

    if it makes a difference I have naturally wavy hair. it holds curl well but doesn’t curl on it’s own. bonus for anyone who can recommend a shampoo that helps with my curls and gives me amazing split ends free hair

    • ANSWER:
      REDKEN! I swear by it, been using it for years and its wonderful.

      My hair feels like ive just left the hairdressers every time i use it, it makes me hair so shiney and soft and keeps that bounce and flow in it.

      Ever since using it my hair isn’t ever too dry, oily, tangled etc. And usually my hair would build up oil that just looks so disgusting within 24 hours of washing, now i can go two days and my hair looks fresh!

      It really does repair your hair, and make it not only look healthy but actually be healthy.

      Also my best friend uses de’ lorenzo and her hair looks just as good, I tried it years ago and its great too :) I just love my redken, so havent parted with it.

  32. QUESTION:
    Best shampoo for healthy, shiny, and manageable hair?
    I have fine, thin, straight/slightly-wavy hair a little bit past my shoulders. I have been trying to grow it out for almost four years now but can’t because I have to get it trimmed every so often due to split and dead ends. My hair is frizzy, dull, and a bit damaged due to straightening a few years ago. Now, I only let my hair air dry and have been doing this for a year or so, but it still hasn’t recovered. I have tried moisturizing shampoos and conditioners but they just seem to make my hair heavy and oily. What is the best shampoo to use for healthy, shiny, and manageable hair?

    • ANSWER:
      When you wash your hair with one of those nutrient-rich shampoos, most of the nutrients and active ingredients in the product don’t actually end up in your hair, they wind up down the drain… along with all the money you spent on the shampoo.

      It is HOW you use to style your hair or what styling tools that damage the hair, and what chemicals you’re adding to the hair, not the shampoo, as you’ve experienced. . If you’re having cavities, or teeth falling out one after another, you don’t change toothpaste.

      Even the cheapest shampoo & conditioner can do magic for your hair.

      It may grow very slowly or none at all if you’ve straightened your hair in the past.

      You get all your hair strength, vitamins & minerals & proteins FREE from the good foods you eat from Mother Nature, not made by man, and no shampoo can help grow hair, not even those made for horses. Horses don’t abuse their hair, using heating tools, and they eat better than people, but it won’t add more hair & make their hair longer faster.Shampoo intended for animals may contain insecticides or other medications for treatment of skin conditions or parasite infestations such as fleas or mange. These must never be used on humans.
      Prenatal vitamins don’t make your hair grow. Pregnant women have to start taking care of their bodies when they’re pregnant, meaning stop smoking, drinking, dyeing or perming their hair SO OF COURSE their hair start growing again. But it has nothing to do with their hair, it has something to do to help the development of their unborn child.

      “Foods for Healthy Hair” – the website had moved, type it in.

      http://health.yahoo.com/experts/healthie…

      Fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains all supply B-complex vitamins, like biotin, folic acid and vitamin B12, as well as vitamin A, copper and zinc, which are all necessary for remedying dry, brittle hair and nourishing a healthy scalp. Some prime examples of foods that contain these nutrients for healthy hair include:
      ·                     Folic Acid – asparagus, beets, broccoli, avocados, Brussels sprouts, beans, chickpeas, soybeans, lentils, oranges, fresh peas, turkey and spinach.
      ·                     Biotin – cauliflower, liver, salmon, carrots, bananas, cereals, yeast, and soy flour. Keep in mind that biotin content is reduced when food is cooked or preserved.
      ·                     Vitamin B12 – foods rich in vitamin B12 include animal protein (such as beef, lamb, and veal), clams and oysters, liver, fish, milk, and egg yolks.
      •Vitamin A – butter, egg yolks, fish, fortified milk, organ meats (such as liver), and dark green, orange, red, and yellow fruits and vegetables, which all contain beta-carotene.
      •Copper – oysters and other shellfish, whole grains, beans, nuts, potatoes, and organ meats are good sources of copper. Dark leafy greens, dried fruits such as prunes, cocoa, black pepper, and yeast are also sources of copper in the diet.
      •Zinc – beef, eggs, liver, pork, poultry, and oysters. Also is also abundant in other high-protein foods, like cheese, legumes and nuts.
      If having a lush, beautiful mane of healthy hair is important to you, don’t just look to hot oil treatments and shine emollients. Eat these foods for healthy hair and say “bye-bye” to bad hair days.

  34. QUESTION:
    What Shampoo is Best to Use for Healthy Shiny Hair?
    Also, my hair is wavy. I’m just wondering if there are any good shampoo brands that people recommend me using that WON’T make my hair smell bad. Last time I used Pantene ( I think the name was ice something.. It had an icon with ice/crystals on the cover) and my hair smelled like loads of smelly oil the next day. Only I could smell it though since I had my hair down and no one else was around me.

    Any shampoos that give hair a shiny, healthy look and has a nice scent?

    • ANSWER:
      ya i tried that stuff too… you might like garnier fructis because it works and smells awsome. also, you could try main n tail. it makes your hair super healthy and shiny. and you might try smelling them BEFORE you buy them so that you dont waste your money on stuff you are only gonna use once.

  35. QUESTION:
    Which is the best smelling shampoo and healthy too.?
    I want to use a shampoo which smells really nice n makes your hair softer too.

    • ANSWER:
      Johnson & Johnson Baby Shampoo has been my shampoo forever. I personally like the original scent, but they have some new ones now (e.g. lavender). Makes hair extremely soft, shiny, etc. with very gentle ingredients.

  36. QUESTION:
    What’s the best shampoo that smells good and is healthy for your hair?
    I heard Pantene makes it really soft. What do you guys use and what do you recommend?

    • ANSWER:
      Tresemme!!
      -good stuff
      -giant bottles
      -cheap
      -Healthy! full of the right vitamin’s for each type of hair + Plants. (e.g. Moisture rich = Vitamin E. Salon silk = Vitamin H & Almond oil).
      -Smells nice!
      -and is used by professionals.

      Smells nice too, not a huge variety in smells though.

      There is different ones for different jobs, e.g, colour, moisture rich, salon silk + more.

      I have moisture rich, because I have dull, dry kinda hair, it’s working miracles for me.. only been using it for a week and already my hair is looking healthier.

      Other then this shampoo I would recommend any shampoos that you DON’T really by from your local grocery store, so look at a hair warehouse or hairdressers. I’m continually getting told by hair dressers that grocery shampoo is all just soap. Lol.
      Pantene also has this chemical in it which is used to seal roofs, it makes your hair really shiny, but builds up at your roots and makes your hair fall out. Hair dresser told my mum that apparently.

      I used to use Herbal Essences Hello Hydration, it made my hair feel so soft and it smelt yummy, but it used to frizz a lot more then now that I’m using Tresemme. Tresemme works much better for me.

      BUT I guess all shampoo brands work slightly different for different people, but Tresemme works best for me.

      Oh they have a website that may help you too! + A test to find the right type of their shampoo for you.

I’ve tried Pantene as well as a lot of others i know and it is not a good shampoo because it has way to many chemicals and it is highly fragranced to the point it makes your scalp itchy. Try Redken All soft shampoo and conditioner or Neutrogena shampoo and conditioner in triple moisture. Another good is the LoReal shampoo’s and conditioners, they have new ones that are sulfate free now. As of right now none most of these have not worked for me in the aspect my hair has this weird smell all the time now but i think it is due to the water here in Texas I am originally from New Jersey so i guess my scalp is not use to the water down here. But hopefully where ever u are the water is good LOL

    hi..what is the best shampoo for make my hair healthy and prevent the falling of hair and my hair is oily so please advice me
    thanks

    • ANSWER:
      My hair dresser gave me shocking news. Most shampoos out there are actually bad for your hair.

      Like pantene… It actually kills your hair slowly, the only reason it looks healthy is because the shampoo covers your hair with think wax to make it shiny. And appear ‘healthy’.

      She said “Believe it or not, SUAVE is the best for your hair.”

  46. QUESTION:
    best shampoo to make short hair grow faster and healthy?
    i have short hair that’s damaged from dyeing it. Anything that’s not too expensive that I can get from a store and will help my hair grow faster and healthier? and i condition my hair regularly so its getting a lot healthier.

    • ANSWER:
      Nothing you do is going to make your hair grow faster. That’s not me being mean, it’s just the truth. Your hair has grown at the same rate it has since you were born and will continue to do so until you die. Pills/vitamins can strengthen the regrowth and make it healthier, thus giving it the appearance it’s growing faster. Eating healthier makes your regrowth healthier, but that should be a given. No products, shampoos and conditioners, will make it grow. Not even Mane N Tail, it’s just a shampoo and conditioner and it only treats the outside. Trims are a myth at making hair grow. Trims cut the ends and hair grows from the root, or from your head. Sure, trims make the hair look nicer by ridding the head of split ends but that’s about all.
      I’ve tried everything and nothing has made my hair grow faster. Just be patient and take a multi vitamin to make your hair healthier.

  47. QUESTION:
    What is the best/healthiest shampoo?
    I want to know what would be the best shampoo for my hair. My hair is dry, flat, and oily. I’m trying to grow my hair out (so shampoo that helps that would be nice.) I also would like my hair’s thickness to be enhanced. I know that pantene is bad for your hair. So what is bad and good?…. and affordable.
    Thanks =)

    • ANSWER:
      Look the healthies hair shampoo or conditioner is Living Proof. And the reason why is because this product has no silicone in it! Silicones make your hair appear less frizzy and mke your hair dirty. This shampoo/ conditioner has got Polyferouester or whatever its called. XD I dont think its cheap.

      I use Herbal Essences Hello Hydration shampoo and conditioner. It makes my hair smell awesome and its cheap ;] If you want to make your hair thicker use the herbal essences body envy for volume

  48. QUESTION:
    What is the best and healthiest shampoo that can be used on all hair types?
    A shampoo for scalp and hair that can be used as often or as little as one would want. One that won’t leave your hair to oily or to dried out.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Cookie!
      I recommend WEN Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner
      Perfect balance of nourishing herbs and natural ingredients designed to hydrate and replenishdamaged hair

    Saw Palmetto + Hair, Skin & Nails Supplement + Fish Oil Supplement = Safe?
    Is this safe and possible?? I am only taking Fish Oil Supplements (1200mg) right now but I need to deal with my alopecia and I have read the Saw Palmetto helps a lot in regulating DHT. My Hair, Skin & Nails supplements contains Vitamins A, D and E which are also good for the skin and for my falling hair. Is this too much?

    • ANSWER:
      They’re man-made? Safe. NO! Even the healthy foods we’re supposed to eat DAILY, fresh fruits & vegetables aren’t even safe! They’re packing them in with chemicals! Chemicals are everywhere, so what makes man-made products safer for us?

      The hair industry is a billion dollar business, they sell products that cleans & condition the hair. They also sell products that damage and causes hair loss. They also DO NOT give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss due to ‘abuse’.

      Fish oil: Save your money instead of buying hair growth products or supplements. Vogue Dec. 2010, Vogue Feb. 2011 issue has a section on biotin, supplements, fish oil, etc. . Fish oil for example: Read the labels if they state that it contains: “one or more of the following: Cod, English Whiting, Shark. Google Fish Oil March 2010 Forbes . . . Americans spend billions on foods and supplements containing omega-3 fatty acids. Not all of it is money well spent.

      Supplements: CNN, Slate, Consumer Reports, MSN, YAHOO have posted them online for years how people spend billion per year on vitamins and supplements.  According to Everyday Health, here’s an article that will tell you why . . . those PRODUCTS by any other name do NOT WORK.  It is false advertisements. Google: Are Supplements Good For You? About 7,430,000 results (0.15 seconds). THEN Google: Are vitamins & supplements good for you? About 4,250,000 results (0.14 seconds) Some can actually shorten your life!
      Google: Hair growth caused other men nationwide in class-action lawsuits. About 1,640,000 results (0.10 second.

      Everything you NEED comes from your daily foods from Mother Nature, not made by man or supplements found from GNC stores.

      Google: “Foods for Healthy Hair” – the website had moved, type it in.
      There are reasons WHY your hair is falling. Find the ’cause’ before you can find ‘solution’.

  12. QUESTION:
    has anyone used the supplement Biotin for hair and nail growth?
    I heard it is good for hair and nails. How much biotin do you need? I know most people already get enough in their diet without the supplement. Has anyone noticed a difference in their hair/nails after taking it?

    • ANSWER:
      Biotin aids in cell growth. Sufficient amounts are needed for healthy hair and skin. 100 mg are recommended 2 times per day.Biotin has been a big help in stopping hair loss in both men and women. I would also recommend Horsetail and Kelp.

  13. QUESTION:
    Is it okay to take Biotin supplements for hair, nails and skin while pregnant?
    I am not pregnant but am planning to be. Is biotin safe?

    • ANSWER:
      That would be a great question for your Dr. Regular prenatal vitamins do the same thing!!!!!!

  14. QUESTION:
    What is the best Hair Skin & Nails Vitamin supplement?
    I have dry thin long hair, very short nails, and acne and blackheads and redness in some areas.
    Will Hair skin & nails Vitamins help? If so, can you guys tell me the best yet not too expensive product? I heard there is one that makes your hair shed. I heard it was GNC, so I’m afraid of taking them.

    By the way, I take multivitamins on a daily basis, so will taking the Hair skin & nails supplement affect my health?

    Thanks! ^.^

    • ANSWER:
      The GNC Hair, Skin, Nails did not make my hair shed. I used it for two months.
      Fish oil supplements are good for hair health, and biotin is good for making hair grow faster and nails stronger. As far as skin, I think detoxifying your body and then treating the acne will make it go away.

      If you’re taking a multivitamin, be sure not to take too high a dosage of hair growth supplements.
      This girl can explain the reason: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsofxCjz2I8

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      I tried this product for 3 months. It doesn’t make hair grow faster but it does make it stronger. I think it’s pretty expensive for the results that you get, all you need to do is take vitamine B supplies and have a healthy diet, I’m doing this for the moment and I think it works better than most of the pills that you buy. Vitamins and micronutrients in food are far richer and better absorbed by the body.

    • ANSWER:
      I took green tea supplements for a while and, although I didn’t mean for it to, it made my hair and nails look wonderful. My nails chip and peel a lot, and they stopped completely…and I swear my hair was shinier and stronger while I was taking them. I’d give it….uh…an 8, I guess?

  23. QUESTION:
    what is the best supplement for hair, skin and nails?
    I tried Perfectil before. As far as I remember it was fairly good but it is a little expensive for my current budget. I want a general multivitamin/minerals supplement as well as trying to get them from my diet. I have whiteheads on my forehead making it a bit bumpy and tendency to get spots and whitehead on my chin. It’s not that noticeable when I wear make up but it bothers me.
    Any recommendations for supplements aimed at skin health?

    • ANSWER:
      Maybe you should change your approach. Go for seperate suppliments, something that treats skin hair and nails can’t be too effective at them all. I would suggest Zinc for your nails, aswell as Almond oil (both very cheap) For your skin you should try a natural ailment. I use Sage & Comfrey from the Body shop for my whole face. It’s a small tube that you use before moisturiser and dries your small spots and whiteheads up a treat, plus it makes your make-up really smooth with your make-up on.
      I would always try those before suppliments, you can get the same thing from fresh fruit and veg as you can from suppliments.
      Good luck! x

    I’ve just bought some :)xx
    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes. I’ve taken natural supplements (Biotin), and they’re aren’t really any cons.
      Well, pros: It’s natural, it will work, it makes you more healthy, you’re hair will grow longer, and be shiner, not brittle, nails get thicker and grow longer, skin, i’m not really sure because i didn’t really have bad skin when i was taking them.
      Cons: It’ll take awhile for it to work, maybe a month if you take it every day, i guess it’s a con if you have thick nails already because it makes your nails thicker.. but besides that, it’s all good.

      I use an herbal supplement called Zena Herb, they make alot of supplements, the hair tonic is the one you would need.

  31. QUESTION:
    What is the recommended daily allowance of biotin as a supplement for hair, skin, and nails?

    • ANSWER:
      Even though biotin is good for you, you should still see a doctor.
      The body can take 3000mcg, but EVERYONE’s result to taking biotin is different.
      Some people break out just by taking 1000mcg.
      I’m taking biotin and I take 5000mcg.
      To avoid break outs, you should take a multivitamin, eat meals(if you don’t and just take biotin without food or water, you’re going to feel like crap)
      and
      Drink your daily supply of water drink 8 8oz of water(You’re supposed to drink 64oz. daily)
      I suggest you start on a small dosage and work your way up to 5000mcg
      You must remember,
      1.Biotin takes about 3 months to fully get into your system(So don’t up your dosage to 10,000mcg, be patient)
      2.Everyone’s results is different.

  32. QUESTION:
    has anyone taken GNC hair skin and nails supplement?
    did you see results? how long did it take to see these results? any other information you would like to share please feel free…thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I have, and I currently am taking Biotin, which is basically the same thing. My nails already grow fast to begin with, but they seem to be growing even faster and haven’t been splitting like they usually do in the dry winter.

      As for my hair, I think it’s growing a little faster, but it’s hard to tell. It doesn’t make your existing hair any different because the hair that is already hanging out of your head is composed of dead cells. But the hair growing in should be healthier.

  33. QUESTION:
    Is it alright to take Stresstabs and Hair, Skin & Nails Dietary Supplement?
    High Potency Advanced Stresstabs – with B-Vitamins, C + E, plus Zinc for Immune Support.. And GNC Women’s Hair, Skin & Nails Formula – Dietary Supplement… I was given both the vitamins by someone and told I should take them both daily, because I’m so stressed out, and my hair use to be soo thick, and now it’s thin as heck.. But I hate taking any kind of meds or vitamins.. So, I’m a little worried.. I don’t want to O.D. or anything.. They both contain a lot of the same things.. And I’m an 18 year old female, in case that contributes in.

      GNC Women’s Hair, Skin & Nails Formula = it’s useless but it won’t hurt you.

  34. QUESTION:
    Are there any supplements for hair or nails which really work?
    I am trying to grow my hair and nails – I dye it blonde (not stopping ever) but have stopped straightening or blowdrying it. Is there anything else I can do to help it grow faster and or healthier? Cutting my hair regularly on the advice of hairdressers did not help at all.

    My nails are also not very strong – I take calcium but is there anything else?

    • ANSWER:
      To be honest, almost any multi will work. I used to take the Ultranourish Hair from GNC. (it has the same ingrediants as a pre-natal vitamin does, but, I didn’t want to have “pre-natal vitamins” lying around my place b/c if anyone saw them, they would think I was trying to get preg.)But, since I’m buying a house now & cannot be spending allot of extra $$, I decided to switch to taking Centrum and also some extra biotin pills. (I get a big bottle of the Centrum from the wholesale club & you can get the biotin anywhere….doesn’t need to be anything fancy, just try to take between 3000mcg & 5000mcg of biotin a day) And, to be completely honest, my hair and nails are growing at the EXACT same speed & same strength/quality as when I took the one’s from GNC.

      You do not need to cut your hair, unless you have slpit ends. Remember, hair grows from WITH-IN you, so, cutting it won’t make it grow faster. Just get a trim whenever you see you have split ends. Oh, and make sure you are eating enough protein (hair is made up of protein) and drinking enough water (if you are dehydrated, you hair will be dry & could cause split ends)

  35. QUESTION:
    how can I make my hair grow longer and more quickly?
    I’ve been drinking this hair, nail,skin supplement and I see it really working on my nails….whats good for hair?

    • ANSWER:
      You can’t actually MAKE your hair grow. Tons of people say they have the product for hair growth but it’s not really gonna work. Your hair has a preset time and length that it will grow. You really can’t change that.

    the hair,skin n nail tablets have some biotin in, but not a strong enough dosage, so im thinking of buying seperate biotin tablets to take in addition.

    will that be ok?

    if uve used biotin how has it helped?
    any side affects?

    extra info:
    i live in the UK, im 20 =), i dont get enough vitamins through food coz i kinda dont like meat.

    • ANSWER:
      I say, don’t waste your money on the “skin and nail supplements,” and next time just buy the biotin. A biotin supplement of 1,000 mg or more will have the same effects and is most likely A LOT cheaper. I have been taking them for the past 8 months or so, and my hair has grown by about 50% more each month. Also, if you want a full daily vitamin, i would recommend prenatal vitamins, those also have a lot of vitamins that help with hair and nail growth.

  48. QUESTION:
    what vitamin supplement is in a prenatal that makes your hair and nails grow?

    • ANSWER:
      Well hair grow half an inch each month on its own. But what I would suggest it try using Mane N’ Tail Horse Shampoo and Conditioner. I use it all the timeand it does aid in growing your hair faster. I’d
      say massage it into your scalp so it can get to your roots well this increases the blood flow helping
      it grow faster. When shampooing and conditioning you should use cold or luke warm water on your hair so it won’t damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.You can find it at walmart in the pet section.
      You should drink plenty of water to help condition your hair.

      Eating Coconut oil also has benifits its not only good for adding nutrients to the hair, but its also
      good for weight loss and has many more benifits.
      And don’t forget about exercising, as much as I hate it, it actually helps by increasing the blood flow
      and stimulating the hair to grow faster.

      Hope I helped!

Vitamins For Hair And Nail Growth

Fertility Vitamins and Prenatal Vitamins
Many women are either confused about what to look for in fertility vitamins or they don’t see the need to take vitamins at all. Let me take some time to explain why vitamin supplements are necessary in order to increase your fertility as well as why prenatal vitamins are necessary prior to and during pregnancy for you and your unborn child. Most women don’t get the vitamins and minerals needed from the food they eat from day to day. We would have to eat a whole lot of fruits, vegetables, meats, and grains in order to get the balance of vitamins and minerals that our bodies need to thrive and be our healthiest.

Women’s vitamins are especially important when a woman is trying to conceive and during pregnancy. These are specifically called prenatal vitamins.

Prenatal vitamins supply a rich assortment of vitamins and minerals to help a woman conceive and bring forth a healthy baby. These vitamins and minerals are necessary to help keep our hormones balanced and our nervous system running smoothly as well as keeping all our organs functioning optimally.
Let me stress – We all need to take a multivitamin and multi mineral supplement to make up for what is lacking in the food we eat. Even the best diet in the world will not give you all the nutrients you need for your best chance at getting pregnant and bringing forth an optimally healthy child.

So what do you look for? What are the qualities of the best fertility vitamins and prenatal vitamin supplements?

Well, I’m no expert. But I can tell you what I took that helped me to be more fertile and energetic and have a trouble-free pregnancy. I looked into several prenatal vitamins before choosing what I believe to be the best multi vitamin supplement that’s all natural and made from organically-grown plant compounds (see below). The other prenatal vitamins were synthetically made with artificial coloring.

I also ate lots of fruits and vegetables and drank a lot of purified water. (See my Preconception page for more on this.) Make sure your multivitamin has at least 400 mcg of folic acid (I took 800 mcg daily) in order to prevent neural tube defects in your unborn baby. This neural tube develops within the first month of life, so it’s important to get enough folic acid before you get pregnant.

* Remember that even the best multi vitamin supplement won’t replace eating a healthy diet with lots of fruits, vegetables, dairy products, grains, meats, and drinking lots of purified water. Both a healthy diet and a great multi vitamin supplement are needed to increase your fertility and ensure that you have a healthy pregnancy.

Hair Loss Vitamin

Saw Palmetto for Hair Loss, Saw Palmetto Benefits
Saw palmetto benefits are numerous and diverse, which is why saw palmetto is considered one of the most versatile herbal medicines available. Here we explore just some of them, so you can decide if you should consider taking saw palmetto supplements.

It is a naturally occurring plant that grows in North America. The plant has been harvested for use in men who are experiencing prostate or urinary tract inflammations in men, but has also been noted to reduce the production of DHT in men who are experiencing hair loss.

By far the most common type of baldness (alopecia) in males is called male-pattern baldness or androgenic (androgenetic) alopecia. When this condition develops, the hair is lost in a well-defined “M” pattern (hence the name.) Women also suffer from androgenic alopecia; in females this condition is known as female-pattern baldness.

Saw palmetto baldness treatment is said to work by interrupting hormonal signals and therefore reducing the uptake by the hair follicles of a damaging chemical called dyhydrotestosterone (DHT). There are both topical and oral preparations and these can complement each other by reducing DHT locally on the scalp and throughout the body so promoting healthy hair growth.
Saw palmetto is a natural herb which effectively combats hair loss. The medical term for the herb Saw palmetto is Serenoa repens. A small palm which grows in warm climates such as the Southeastern part of United States produces a red fruit. This herb is very popular in Germany. Saw Palmetto lowers the DHT level in our body by obstructing 5 alpha-reductose, thus reducing the development of DHT, which causes hair loss.

Chances are you have heard of saw palmetto. Hair loss is probably the last thing that you expected saw palmetto to be associated with, but as of late there have been many treatments out there that have been designed to alleviate the symptoms of losing hair and help re grow hair and this is just one of them.

When using saw palmetto for hair loss one option is using it as an external treatment by massaging it into the scalp and hair. You can purchase saw palmetto as an oil extract or as an ointment. One of the reasons saw palmetto has been so successful in the treatment of hair loss, particularly when used externally, is that its components are lipophilic in nature. This means they are well extracted into the oil base typically used, and are easily absorbed by the skin, therefore providing a more productive treatment.

It thus helps revive hair follicles, improve hair strength, body and shine, make scalp less sensitive to stress and irritation. So if you are looking for safe products for hair loss Saw Palmetto is one option you should consider first. Although it is not known to help sudden hair shedding but if taken over a period of time it certainly would help prevent alopecia and atleast prolong a condition where a lot of people may go for surgical option such as transplant for restoration of their crown. Taking it alongside some essential vitamins and minerals would help further.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know a good hair loss vitamin?
    has anyone taken any vitamins for hair loss that’s worked? If so what brand and does? Biotin? etc…
    my hair has been shedding more than usual, and I want to try a supplement to see if it helps ( I use organic shampoo/conditioner, and I eat plenty of veggies/fish oil/ etc, and i don’t style my hair much only blow dry on cool)

    • ANSWER:
      I will give several answers since this depends on the condition.

      For general reasons the best thing is Ecklonia Cava (Fibroboost).
      It protects against photo oxidation, inflammation from caused from diet, increases trans-cranial blood flow, increases oxygen to the capillaries and inhibits gelatinase-B enzyme (MMP-9) which causes follicle fallout. More info on that found here: http://www.immortalhair.org/theoryinpractice.htm

      Biotin would help if you have been an accutane user in the past or have taken antibiotics in the last year.

      If it’s thyroid related, then iodine in the form of Lugol’s solution.
      See this site for more information regarding that. http://www.immortalhair.org/physiology.htm

      It could be iron also, so have your ferritin levels measured, but only if you’re female.

  2. QUESTION:
    What is the best hair loss vitamin for men?

    • ANSWER:
      zinc and b-complex vitamins/DON’T WEAR HATS.if you are stressed out that will thin out hair in men too

  3. QUESTION:
    What is a good vitamin for hair loss?
    What is a good hair cream that has good vitamins for my hair loss that I can use daily?

    • ANSWER:
      get vitamin e supplements, work miracles :)
      you might even be able to get shampoo with it in xo

  4. QUESTION:
    How can accutane cause hair loss if it is rich in vitamin A which promotes hair growth?
    i read online that sum of the side effects for taking accutane is hair loss, and i’m starting to notice that my hair is getting alot thinner. so if accutane is a high dose of vitamin a compacted into a pill, then shouldnt it be promoting hair growth?

    • ANSWER:
      The key to the answer is in your question: “accutane is a high dose of vitamin a”. And, in fact, high doses of Vit A cause marked shedding of the skin and the associated structures. Thus, if you were to take a very high dose of Vit A, your skin would turn a bright red, and you’d start shedding skin, hair, nails. The advantage of Accutane is that it, more often than not, gives the beneficial effects of high dose Vit A without the unwanted side effects. However, there are some people who also see some of the unwanted side effects, such as hair thinning.

  5. QUESTION:
    Is there a vitamin deficiency that causes hair loss?
    My doctors have run labs and everything looks alright, but my hair is falling out. It comes and goes so its not like permanent hair loss. I have been taking a daily vitamin with no relief. Any advice or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      it can be caused by a lack of protein in the diet.

  6. QUESTION:
    Will taking a vitamin E supplement and a multivitamin prevent hair loss?
    I’m probably not getting enough nutrients from my low-cal diet, although I do take a multivitamin every night.

    So recently my hair has been falling out in handfulls, which is most definitely not normal even for me.

    Will taking a vitamin E supplement, plus my multivitamin daily, prevent further hair loss… or will the extra vitamin E just get turned into fat?

    • ANSWER:
      anyway as we know hair loss can be caused by many different reasons! There are many causes of loss of hair such as stress, poor nutrition ,medications, thyroid dysfunctions, illness, fungal infections ,hormonal problems, to mention a few.

      year ago I suffered very much from dandruff and hair loss too and I started trying everything you can imagine to stop my hair loss.
      the things that really worked for me was:

      1) Vitamin A – an anti-oxidant which promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp;

      2) Vitamin E stimulates circulation. Good blood circulation in the scalp is important in keeping hair follicles productive. The ‘B’ vitamins contribute to melanin, which gives hair its healthy color and also stimulates blood circulation;

      3) massage is also beneficial. Massage stimulates circulation. As already noted, good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Experts suggest a few minutes of daily head massage by hand. Circulation through massage may be improved by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base with massage;

      4) Try rubbing your scalp with garlic juice, Onion Juice or Ginger Juice(you can either of one out of three, Do not mix any of two or three);

      5) also he used herbal treatment – TrichoZed and Provilluss (do not use Rogaine – it will not work!)
      Those are a good products that helps prevent hair loss and contains Biotin and the clinically tested ingredients approved by the FDA to help re-grow your hair.! I think it is very important!

      It worked and still works for me!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry TrichoZed but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here

      http://www.trichozed.info/ingredients.php

      (TrichoZed™ will produce noticeable hair growth in 30 to 45 days. A consistent use of TrichoZed™ ensures permanent results within 6 months. Further use shall maintain optimal health of your hair.)

      and here

      http://www.provillus.com/?aid=221781

      (Provillus™ will produce noticeable hair growth in 40. A consistent use of TrichoZed™ ensures permanent results within ~5 months.)

      It enhances hair growth by blocking DHT (Dihydrotestostrone) – a major cause of hair loss!

  7. QUESTION:
    Can hair loss due to vitamin deficiency be reversed?
    My hair is falling out and I’m very sure it’s due to poor diet because I’m only 16 and it started when I became vegetarian, will the hair grow back if I resume a healthy diet or will this just reduce the hair loss?

    • ANSWER:
      Male pattern hair loss at your age is rare, but can occur. Proper nutrition, especially at your age and development, is very important. Things that go wrong inside of your body, many times, will show signs outside of your body – for example, poor skin and thin or thinning out of hair. Making a change to a vegetarian diet without knowing how to overcome some of those nutritional deficiencies (like proteins and minerals you obtain from meat) will cause harm to your body. Seeing your physician and a nutritionist would be a great first start to properly diagnose your problem.

    hi,

    I am a 20 year old male. I have hair loss all around my head not just one area. I am completely out of solutions and help.

    does segals hair loss treatment help? have anyone tried this before?

    What else can i do to regrow my hair?

    Please Help.

    Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

    • ANSWER:
      there are completely NO CURE for hair loss till today.

      hair lose is due to environmental influences, inappropriate consumption which led to lack of certain nutrition/vitamins, mood(stress) and genes.

      all kind of drugs, medications and remedies available may only prevent and to contain, mostly mythical and even there is result, it will not last long.

      speak to a nutritionist, smoking can cause hair lose and moderate drinking is fine. physical exercises are great + personal hygiene too.

      after all, hair will not be the main important in a man, what’s more valuable are self esteem, charisma and etiquette.
      look around, some young men even famous celebrities look great with no hairs.

    • ANSWER:
      Stacey, before you begin to take vitamin supplement i believe it would be ideal to ascertain that you are not suffering from female pattern baldness because if that is the case taking vitamins alone would not be sufficient. There are several reasons behind hair loss apart from vitamin deficiency and you can find most of the common reasons at this url : http://www.hairfallguide.com/hair-loss-prevention/causes-of-hair-loss.html

      However if you would like to straight away choose vitamins and other nutrients which would help you in preventing hair loss and also aid general hair condition you should have a look at this page http://www.hairfallguide.com/nutritional-suppliment/nutritional-suppliment.html

      If you are looking for something which can aid you with your hair loss problem, then Provillus may offer one of the best choices of remedy. Hair loss can be a cause of various factors such as stress, frequent use of shampoos and conditioners containing a lot of chemicals and others.

      Provillus offers the best possible and perennial solution for this problem for both men and women. One of the best parts of the provillus treatment is that it uses natural ingredients. This has accounted for its rising popularity. Thus it leaves the other products behind in this context, since most of the products contain harmful chemicals.

      Provillus basically functions by removing the main cause of hair loss i.e. DHT. DHT damages the hair follicles and is responsible for the thinning of hair. It also restricts the re-growth of new hair. Provillus prevents its formation and it also promotes the growth of the new hair.

      You might be wondering whether what makes its treatment effective and popular. Well the natural ingredients which it uses work on your scalp and thus provide the best solution without any side effects. Thus it has a higher rating over other such products available in the market.

      Well you might be aware that it is available for both men and women. The saw palmetto extract is basically present in the men’s version whereas a combination of acids is present in the female version. Thus in addition to the solution of problem of hair loss it also nourishes hair.

  14. QUESTION:
    Can hair loss in women be related to a vitamin dificiency?
    I have been experiencing some extreme hair loss for many months now and I’ve gone to get blood work which has turned out pretty okay (very mild iron dificiency), thyroid is good, so are hormones etc. My hair has aways fallen out easily since I was little and it almost seems that my hair aside from being fine and thin comes off from the roots (scalp). Could it be that there’s a vitamin or mineral dificiency in me? If so, what kind and how can I take care of it? I’m concerned because I’ve never lost so much hair as I have now. I don’t feel like I’m stressed, no trauma so what is it? Haven’t given birth, no surgery etc. I’m actually now going to cut my hair shorter to hopefully help stop the hair loss but how can I make my hair stronger so it doesn’t fall off my scalp so easily?
    My doctor just checked the testosterone level and that’s is okay too.

    • ANSWER:
      Maybe but not likely. You might need more protein. If you are on a vegetarian diet then that is probably the reason. I lost a beautiful head of hair by becoming vegetarian. Now it is taking me years to get my hair back and a lot of money on doctor visits.

      Stress can lead to hair loss. I lost tons of hair when I was eating too much tofu and soy products because it blocked my thyroid medication.

      My guess would be stress, even though you say no, you could be internalizing your stress.

      Try yoga and take prenatal vitamins. I have some friends who swear by them for healthier hair and nails.

      Yes, Rogaine will help but it is expensive and if you stop using it; all the hair you have grown will fall out.

  15. QUESTION:
    Are there any vitamin supplements to prevent hair loss, if so could you recommend some?

  16. QUESTION:
    what is the vitamin for controlling hair loss and regrowth ?
    what kind of tablets should be taken for hair loss & regrowth?

    • ANSWER:
      There’s no prescription from medical or health care experts that any vitamin or medication really helps controll of hair loss or growth of lost hair, if its a heriditary/genetical problem.

      But, I have seen some women had very amazing results, taking Vitamin E for at least 3 months. It really stopped hair loss and they had their head, full of hair again.
      You may have a try. If you are lucky enough, may be, you’ll also enjoy the same results.

      Using herbal paste like Henna with Amla or Yugurt with Lemon Juice, twice week for 3 months, and then once a week on regular basis will be the best, if its not a genitical problem.

      For dendruf or any scalp infection, you should better consult a Dematologist who can advise you the best.

  17. QUESTION:
    Which is the best dietary supplement or vitamin known for severe women hair loss?
    I am very young, not even 18, and i’ve already tried many hair loss treatments without result.. Can you recommend any?

    • ANSWER:
      Several reasons can cause excessive hair lose. A severe illness or major surgery, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal problems, your current medicine intakes, certain hair treatments that use chemical dyes, bleaches, and straightening or curling agent, or autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks hair follicles causing hair on the head to fall out, etc.

      Supplements recommendations for hair lose:

      B vitamins are important for the health and growth of the hair,especially B6, biotin, folic acid, B5 (pantothenic acid and B3 (niacin)

      http://www.marketamerica.com/lcbeauty/index.cfm?action=shopping.wpGoShopProducts&prodID=2241

      For Vitamin B complex, I would recommend Isotonix line when available because Isotonix line it’s the only oral supplements in the market with isotonic capability when mixing with certain amount of water. Any food or pills taken orally must be digested within our stomach and transported in an isotonic state before our body can absorb its nutrients, this process can take from 40 minutes to 4 hours. Remember our stomach is very high acidic, which means many nutritional values are lost during digestion.

      This means that when we drink a supplement that’s isotonic, our stomach does not need to digest it, so that it can enter our small intestines for absorption within minutes. With Isotonix products, little nutritive value is lost, making the absorption of nutrients highly efficient while delivering maximum results.

      Another supplement I would recommend is to increase omega-3 fatty acids in your diet.
      Omega 3 provide anti-inflammatory property and it’s very important for healthy hair growth.

      I would recommend Heart Health™ Essential Omega III Fish Oil

      http://www.marketamerica.com/lcbeauty/index.cfm?action=shopping.wpGoShopProducts&prodID=2247

      When shopping for fish oil in the market, always look at its EPA and DHA values, because these are the omega 3 readily benefit for human body. Also pay attention to the guarantee of free hard metal contamination.

      Heart Health™ Essential Omega III Fish Oil provides three grams of EPA and DHA, which studies reveal to be the most efficient amount for optimal health and has been tested twice to ensure free of heavy metals.

      In additions, decrease your animal protein intake and try to replace with plant protein when possible. Excessive animal proteins might cause inflammation in your body, encourage hair lose.

      Eat more fruits and vegetables regularly.

      Handle your hair gently, allowing it to air-dry whenever possible and avoid hair product that contain chemical ingredients.

      If you are looking for a gentle shampoo without harsh chemicals and nature base ingredients, try Royal Spa Ultra III Shampoo. This salon formula botanical shampoo, conditioner and finishing rinse in one for dry and chemically treated hair. It features a delicate, moisturizing blend of botanical extracts of evening primrose, heather, jasmine, and orchid to quench dry hair and scalp. It is enhanced with deodorizing freshener to remove chemical processing odors, cigarette smoke and other unpleasant odors.

      http://www.marketamerica.com/lcbeauty/index.cfm?action=shopping.wpGoShopProducts&prodID=2190

      Last suggestive word is be patient and be consistent and persistent because you will probably not see immediately result because your body needs some time to adjust to your new diet and to heal. But be sure to be optimistic and always carry a positive emotion because your mood affects your hormone and also affect your health.

    natural scalp and hair treatments? what to shampoo and condition with? things to avoid?

    • ANSWER:
      Depends on the reason for your hair loss. Is it from a vitamin deficiency? Do you have and underlying health problem? Is it just natural balding? Do you have Alopecia? Best to check with a doctor and find out the reasons first.

  21. QUESTION:
    Can I take Vitamin E and Vitamin B12 for hair loss? I don’t have other problems, just hair loss and someone..
    said to take that. Is it fine to take those two together for hair loss?

    • ANSWER:
      Some vitamin deficiencies can cause hair loss, but if you are trying to stop “normal” hair loss such as male pattern balding, it is not likely that this combination will regrow hair.

      If you eat meat, you are getting enough B12. Vitamin E is an important antioxidant, but don’t overdo it – as it can interfere with your body’s ability to clot blood.

For the information i am using Himalaya protein shampoo and protein cream since February 2010. Need assistance on this matter please.

    • ANSWER:
      You have to make sure you go to the doctor to test why you are losing so much hair in the first place. He will test you for hormone issues, vitamin deficiencies and mineral deficiencies. I use GNC’s Hair Skin Nails vitamins. Take a look at the tablet ingredients and you can find something local that has similar ingredients.

  26. QUESTION:
    vitamin deficiency that causes hair loss?
    im vegan, and my hair has been falling out A LOT lately. i think i have a vitamin deficiency. what vitaminss would i be missing for my hair to fall out? and what vegan foods could i eat to get those vitamins?

    • ANSWER:
      Vitamin E and hair loss

      Hair and scalp care is just one of the many functions of Vitamin E. Vitamin E has the ability to slow down the aging process specifically graying of the hair. Vitamin E is also necessary in providing the scalp a good blood circulation by intensifying the uptake of oxygen. In this case, the hair will become healthier and baldness will be avoided.

      Some food sources that are rich in vitamin E are green leafy vegetables like spinach, cold-pressed vegetable oils, wheat germ oil, nuts, grains, soybeans, eggs, and most cereals, which are fortified with vitamin E. Although these foods rich in vitamin E can be easily obtained, some people, specifically those who are experiencing hair loss, needs to take in added vitamin E supplement to solve their problems.

    why do some vitamin supplements cause hair loss?
    some of the guys i work out with take supplements like testosterone boosters from gnc. ive read and heard they can cause hair loss as a side effect. why does this happen? and how could i stop it?

    • ANSWER:
      Testosterone boosters do not – in and of themselves – cause excessive hair loss. Unless you have a genetic disposition for baldness – which means unless one or both of your granddads was bald – you are not going to lose any more hair than is normal for you to do so.

    How much Vitamin B should you take to stop hair loss?
    When I look at those multivitamins, they always have a high amount of the Vitamin B complex but I read that depending on which Vitamin B, you should take only 6-50 mg per day.

    • ANSWER:
      The treatment of hair loss is depend upon the causes of hair loss.
      And as for as concern with the quantity of vitamin B if you gain it by natural food than it is not so dangerous but if you gain it by some artificial source like medicine and supplement than take care about the quantity of it.

    I have noticed that lately (within the last year or so) that I have been loosing more hair than I should. I know that sometimes it means that I have a lack of vitamins….does anyone know what vitamin that would be?

    • ANSWER:
      Hair loss is usually more of an Iron deficiency. There are a lot of other reasons for hair loss also. Most common ones are stress, side effect of a medication, hormone imbalance, or illness. If you are loosing more hair then normal, you should go have a blood test done. I was loosing a lot of hair and went for a blood test, and found out i had Thyroid disease. Hair loss is usually a sign of something, so you don’t want to ignore it for too long. Better to be safe, then sorry. Good luck :-)

    i want to know which vitamin/mineral should i use to make them stop falling immidiately
    i am really worried

    • ANSWER:
      as we know hair loss can be caused by many different reasons! There are many causes of loss of hair such as stress, poor nutrition ,medications, thyroid dysfunctions, illness, fungal infections, hormonal problems, to mention a few.

      year ago I suffered very much from dandruff and hair loss too and I started trying everything you can imagine to stop my hair loss.
      the things that really worked for me was:

      1) Vitamin A – an anti-oxidant which promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp;

      2) Vitamin E stimulates circulation. Good blood circulation in the scalp is important in keeping hair follicles productive. The ‘B’ vitamins contribute to melanin, which gives hair its healthy color and also stimulates blood circulation;

      3) massage is also beneficial. Massage stimulates circulation. As already noted, good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Experts suggest a few minutes of daily head massage by hand. Circulation through massage may be improved by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base with massage;

      4) Try rubbing your scalp with garlic juice, Onion Juice or Ginger Juice(you can either of one out of three, Do not mix any of two or three);

      5) also I used herbal treatment – Provillus (do not use Rogaine – it will not work!)
      It is a good products that helps prevent hair loss and contains Biotin and the clinically tested ingredients approved by the FDA to help re-grow your hair.! I think it is very important!

      It worked and still works for me!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry Provillus but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.provillus.com/?aid=221781

      It enhances hair growth by blocking DHT (Dihydrotestostrone) – a major cause of hair loss!

      Also Informative video about Provillus – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ydvCHhbRkk

  38. QUESTION:
    What Vitamins help with Hair loss at 18?
    I know that stress has alot to do with hair loss, but it runs in my family as well. What is the best proven natural Vitamin to stop hair loss and improve re-growth? Thanks a bunch

    • ANSWER:
      Vitamin A has been found to support the healthy development of tissues and cells in the body and also supports healthy hair. This important vitamin promotes healthy hair follicles by keeping the root of the hair lubricated. Vitamin A can be found in green vegetables, particularly the leafy ones, red, orange and yellow vegetables, liver and eggs.

      Vitamin E supports a healthy scalp by helping to increase the oxygen supplied through the blood.

      The B vitamins are also important for hair health. Regulating the amount of iron in the blood, these vitamins also help oxygen flow through the lungs to the tissues

  39. QUESTION:
    Vitamin D related hair loss……?
    I am severely vitamin D deficient( 7 on the scale). I lost about 1 third of my hair due to finding out late. Has anyone gone through vitamin D defieciency hair loss ? I want to know besides vitamin D therapy what you did to help hair grow back. Did it grow back? All of it? how long did it take? THANK YOU! please serious helpful answers only…….

    • ANSWER:
      I was losing tons of hair and went to the dr for bloodwork. I was deficient in vitamin B and iron. My hair stopped falling out, but never got back to the thickness it was.

      You sure you meant vitamin D? You’d have a head full of hair, but you’d also have rickets or at least brittle bones with a D deficiency.

      I was also just reading on msnbc site where studies have shown vit d protects against several different cancers, so if you’re lacking you are putting yourself at a high risk. Hair falling out would be the least of my worries.

  40. QUESTION:
    Can a Vitamin D deficiency cause hair loss?

    • ANSWER:
      no, vitamin D does not relate to hair loss, however it does relate to the optimum health and growth of your body. Vitamin D is absolutely necessary for the growth and development of bones and teeth.

      which in all, does not relate to hair.

    • ANSWER:
      Yep. If you are experiencing hair loss, see a doctor because there are issues that cause it that are correctable. If you are just trying to grow healthy hair and don’t have any concerns, than don’t sweat the loss of one supplement. No problem.

  47. QUESTION:
    Can Vitamin D deficiency cause hair loss?
    Can Vitamin D deficiency cause hair loss?
    I’ve been experiencing gradual hair thinning for close to 2 years now. It’s not very noticeable to others, but it is to me. During those two years, a little over a year ago my mom passed away.. prior to that I dropped out of school to take care of her so I was experiencing a lot of stress during the past two years. (I’m 20 by the way.) I went to the doctor’s recently, and my ferretin levels (iron stores) were at about 20.7 with a reference range of 11-370.. so it’s on the low end. My doctor prescribed 975 mg of ferrous sulfate a day, with 500 mg of vitamin c for better absorption. I’ve been taking it for a month, and have noticed my hair looking a little healthier… but, I haven’t noticed any regrowth. During the past two years, I’ve become somewhat of a homebody.. while I was taking care of my mom I rarely went out, and after she passed, I was severely depressed and stayed in ALL the time. Only recently have I been getting out a little more, but still not that much. I haven’t gotten my Vitamin D levels checked yet, but considering the circumstances (I don’t drink milk, get out in the sun rarely, and live in the NW) I feel like I might be low in Vitamin D as well.

    I’d like to know if anyone has experienced hair thinning due to Vitamin D deficiency and if it has gotten better from taking supplements. I’ve read online that Vit D deficiency can cause hair loss, but I’d like to hear a real experience with it.

    Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      Hello Samantha

      Vitamin D, Iron deficiency AND worry or stress can all cause increased hair loss, and it doesn’t help when we start to lose our hair and worry about losing our hair.

      If you DO have any vitamin or other deficiencies (go see your doctor for a blood test), the first step is to deal with the deficiency. With vitamin D you can take supplements and I advise you get out and get lots of sun (exposure to sunlight causes your body to produce more vitamin D).

      When you sort out the deficiencies, you won’t see any reduction in hair loss immediately – it takes time. Added to that is the psychological factor. Since we all start to get negative and pessimistic when we see hair loss, even when there IS improvement, we don’t see it. We tend to notice hair loss more, so you’ll get worried about the same amount of hair you were losing 10 years ago.

      But if you’ve sorted out all the deficiencies and you’re having a good diet with whole foods, avoiding refined foods, avoiding cholesterol and avoiding salt, then you may consider using minoxidil 2% for women.

      Minoxidil is a topical solution and one of the few drugs that have been proven to reduce the rate of further hair loss.

      See how it goes. Good luck.

For Hair Growth

9 Home Remedies For Hair Growth To gain the long lustrous locks and to improve the hair growth, there are many things that we do. This can range from investing in expensive shampoos hawked by salons to spa treatments that cost a fortune. Let’s discuss some home remedy for hair loss that are natural, side effect free, inexpensive and very effective in treating hair loss problems.

1. Cumin seeds are part of the carrot family and are good for the hair growth. Take nearly half cup of olive oil and add a table spoon of cumin seeds in it. Rub the mixture properly over the scalp and leave it for some time, half an hour or more. After the mixture dries, rinse it off carefully.

2. Using Oils for Hair Growth: An age old natural home remedies for hair growth is the use of castor oil, coconut oil and olive oil. Mix these oils together and warm it a bit to allow the oil to penetrate the roots of the hair and promote hair growth.

3. Using natural oils is a great way to help new hair grow, and frequent oil treatments will also strengthen the hair you have already. Natural oils include olive oil, avocado oil and almond oil. For mild treatments, the best way to use oil is to put some on the scalp after shampooing, leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse. For more moderate cases of hair loss, saturate the scalp with oil prior to bedtime and then cover your head with a shower cap and sleep with the oil in the hair. Rinse upon awakening. This can be performed once or twice a month, as too many treatments will result in overly oily hair.

4. You can also apply castor oil or olive oil for massaging the scalp to arrest hair fall.

5. Jojoba oil is a popular herbal cure for many skin and hair related problems. Regularly massaging the scalp by jojoba oil has been found to provide solution to hair loss.

6. Lemon for Oily Hair: An effective hair growth home remedy for oily hair is the use of lemon. You can mix the juice of one lemon with an egg. Amla juice mixed with lemon juice and used for washing the hair fosters hair growth and reduces hair loss quite significantly.

7. Use baking soda and water to rinse off your hair after shampooing your hair. Juice of one lemon or cider vinegar can also be utilized for shine and bounce. Stale beer also does the trick.

8. Rosemary with its antiseptic properties is believed to be one of the best herbal products for stopping the hair loss and allowing the hair to grow. One teaspoon of dried rosemary can be steeped in hot water for twenty minutes. Strain off the liquid and use it to wash your hair. You can also add half a cup of apple cider vinegar to this rosemary solution.

9. Adding essential oils like ylang ylang, horseradish oil, rosemary or patchouli to hair care products also rejuvenates hair and solves your problem.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What are some really good hair growth products for ethnic hair?
    My best friend who is like my little sister has ethnic hair that lays right on her shoulders. She used to straighten her hair a lot, but has stopped to get it back to health. Now her hair is healthy, but it does not grow. She has tried biotin pills, mega hair growth lotion, some kind of drops, and moisturizers. Its really sad and she is really depressed and i was wondering if anyone knows of ethnic hair care products that helps hair growth. It has to actually work because i cant take her crying anymore, i love her and i told her i would help. Thank you so much!

    • ANSWER:
      She probably isn’t properly caring for her hair. Even if she isn’t straightening it she can still be doing things to damage the ends of her hair. Tell her to check out k-i-s-s.biz, hairlista.com, longhaircareforum.com, and blackhairmedia.com those sites *really* helped me. I thought my hair was doomed and it couldn’t grow but the ladies on those sites are informative and helped me understand that my hair could grow I just had to treat it well.

      I have been on these sites for 4 months and my hair has grown from damaged, unhealthy neck length to my shoulders and it is still growing healthy. They talk about things like deep conditioning, washing, protective styling ect. Before I used to be afraid of cutting my hair because I thought it wouldn’t grow back but now I wouldn’t be scared of a pixie cut if I wanted it because I know how to care for my hair and know it will grow back :D

      Also, is she using any heat? Blow dryers? Ect.? Does she relax her hair? Our hair is very delicate so since she’s shoulder length she should be wearing it in protective styles more often because even the hair rubbing on your shirt can cause breakage and equal no length retention for some people. We also must moisturize our hair because it’s very dry. Use a water-based moisturizer and tell her to steer away from products with mineral oil/petroleum.

      If she wants long hair it will be a commitment at first. I know I had to stop using almost all of my hair products because they contained harmful ingredients such as cones, petroleum, mineral oil, and sulphates which are drying to our hair. Just tell her to check those sites out. She’ll learn so much

    What is the average hair growth in 1 month? Any way to make it grow faster?

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I don’t measure my hair per month. But from bob to waist, and cutting them 2x a year, my hair grew that fast. From freshman to HS graduation in other words. Same for a man.

      Shampoos are meant for cleaning hair, eating is for growing and you can’t speed up time, nor can you speed ‘perfection.’ “If you have no patience, you have no right growing long hair.” ~ Hair expert of the 80′s.

      Save your money instead of buying hair growth products or supplements. Vogue Dec. 2010, Vogue Feb. 2011 issue has a section on biotin, supplements, fish oil, etc. . Fish oil for example: Read the labels if they state that it contains: “one or more of the following: Cod, English Whiting, Shark.”

      The FDA don’t even approve of them. Because of inadequate quality control and inspection, supplements contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, or prescription drugs have been sold to unsuspecting consumers. And FDA rules covering manufacturing quality don’t apply to the companies that supply herbs, vitamins, and other raw ingredients.
      Beginning in February 2008, they experienced one symptom after another: diarrhea, joint pain, hair loss, lung problems, and fingernails and toenails that fell off. FDA has received numerous reports of harm associated with the use of these products, including stroke, liver injury, kidney failure, heart palpitations, and death. 3-15-11

      Google: MSN “Vitamins Can Do More Harm Than Good.”
      According Dr. Melissa Piliang, a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic. Americans spent an estimated 6 million on hair loss products last year, and chances are some of that money was not well spent. Don’t let charming salon owners, seductive ads or fancy gimmicks convince you otherwise.

      CNN, Slate, Consumer Reports, MSN, YAHOO have posted them online for years how people spend billion per year on vitamins and supplements. According to Everyday Health, here’s an article that will tell you why . . . those PRODUCTS by any other name do NOT WORK. It is false advertisements. Google: Are Supplements Good For You? About 7,430,000 results (0.15 seconds). THEN Google: Are vitamins & supplements good for you? About 4,250,000 results (0.14 seconds) Some can actually shorten your life!
      Google: Hair growth caused other men nationwide in class-action lawsuits. About 1,640,000 results (0.10 second.

      Best advice from Hollywood’s well known hairstylist in the 80′s once said: “Keep foods in your mouth and hair products on your hair.”

      If you’ve straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all.
      Google: “Foods for Healthy Hair” – the website had moved, type it in.
      Your hair may be the fastest-growing tissue in the body but, unlike the skin, it cannot repair itself. That is why getting the right balance of vitamins and proteins is imperative. Don’t expect to look like you’ve stepped out of a hair commercial the day after you’ve changed your diet. It is likely to take at least three months before you actually see tangible results.
      Growing healthy hair doesn’t come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more. If you’re in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you’re eating healthy foods. But when hair isn’t growing as fast, it’s because they’ve been tempered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . .

      Cutting your split ends yourself, spend 5-10 mins. on a sunny day so you can easily spot them, using a 2″ scissors, cut strand by strand, section by section, allowing new growth to take over. Then 2x a year, get a good hair cut. This won’t speed things up, but it will make the hair look healthier while it’s growing. Even healthy hair like mine get them, due to normal brushing & styling.

      Best answer comes from people with Avatars, showing their healthy shiny, soft, silky, smooth hair.

      Sources:
      I know hair. I have over 4 decades of hair know-how. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy hair down to my knees, started growing them in 2003. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing in the 80′s & 90′s. I’ve known people in their 30′s whose hair stopped growing from ironing their hair in the 70′s.

  4. QUESTION:
    What is the best and fastest hair growth product for any race women?
    I got a short hair cut (shoulder-length) and my hair is puffy. So I want really long hair so it would look better when dry. I really dont know cause its not growing. Is is because, maybe, my gel in my hair or moose and stuff. Stunts its growth. But how else am I suppose to keep it controlled.

    • ANSWER:
      I use to have super slow growing hair. But, I found one really good hair growth product that I discovered while searching on this message board. The product is called A Double Portion Super Hair Growth System. I am biracial, and this product worked really good, and really fast for me, so I think it will work for any race woman.

      Its shampoo and conditioner contained Aloe Vera, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Citrus Oil, Vitamin E, B Vitamins, Rosemary, and Sage…and lots of other natural hair growth ingredients. Anyways, these ingredients are all really good for hair growth and should be in any good hair growth product or supplement. They even have a system that included a super hair growth shampoo, conditioner, oil, vitamins, meal plan, and scalp exercises. When I used it, in 6 months, my hair grew about 8 inches!

      I think that if this doesn’t grow your hair, you might need a hair transplant or suffer from stunted hair growth. I have to tell you that this product is worth the money and is really good. Plus, their shampoo and conditioner smell fabulous, almost like a coconut honey almond. It is yummy and works fast. And it is all natural, unlike other hair growth products, which have hormones and chemicals. You can buy it online at www.discoverb4a.com.

      Just as everyone on the message board suggests, you should drink plenty of water, at least 8 glasses a day and eat lots of protein. You may also want to take B Vitamins and Vitamin E.

  5. QUESTION:
    What is the best hair growth products for children under 3?
    I have a 6 month old, 2 year old, and a 3 year old. In our family, hair doesn’t grow naturally without some kind of hair growth treatments involved. Where can I find some for my children?

    • ANSWER:
      You should try and do it naturally. for your two and three year old get used to tying their hair, or pulling it back. I did this for my niece &her hair grew 5x more rapidly. But, you have to do it everyday, get in the habit of doing this.

  6. QUESTION:
    What are the home remedies for hair growth?
    My wedding is about to come this summer. What are the best home remedies for hair growth also which gives lustrous and health hair, currently m using olive oil massage twice a week giving very slow result. Is there any other solution for fast hair growth? i’ve waist length hair and want more growth.

    • ANSWER:
      It is a myth that oil actually helps your hair grow long. Oil just acts a a coat and protect your hair from pollution, dirt etc. It only coats your hair, makes it stronger, and shiny.

      If you hair is stronger it wont break as fast, therefore instead of loosing 50 hairs a day you may loose 10. Thus oil prevents hair fall rather than helping hair grow long. ;-)
      You hair will grow at its normal speed but use oil to prevent it from falling and thus beginning the growing process from scratch.
      I hope this help and obviously for more tips on your hair care you can have a look at the article. It will give you advice recommended by experts.
      Good luck

    Dr. Miracle
    I am african-american, so I don’t want Pantene, Avon, and stuff like that cause I know it won’t work for my type of hair.
    What is the best product that can help hair growth?
    Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      You can try braiding your hair and keeping moisture in it.

      Wrapping your hair often allows your hair to grow a lot.

      You should comb your hair everyday this lets the air flow through and gives the roots time to breathe and stretch out. Doo Gro does work and so does Dr. Miracle. I do not use either one of them but my mom has and it doesn good for her. You may want to try finding a beauty shop where you can go to either bi-weekly or weekly or if that is not available, you can do a hot oil treatment just by using a shower cap and either hair grease or some kind of oil. I know a lot of tricks when it comes to hair growth its all about you take care and treat your hair. but if you think you have a serious problem you may want to go to the doctor. you can email me at brejackson1980@yahoo.com for more tips if you’d life.

  10. QUESTION:
    What are the best hair growth products for African American hair with severe breakage?
    I get my ends clipped regularly, but some reason i still have breakage and my hair doesn’t seem to be growing. I wash my hair every three weeks (I have to extend my washes because my hair is very dry and frequent washes make it brittle) and condition with cholestrol but my growth is VERY slow. Any recommendations???
    I have used DooGro, B&B Super Gro and Dr. Miracle’s.

    • ANSWER:
      Look for products that have protien in them. Stay away from products with petrolum and mineral oil, they’re VERY bad for your hair. Look for products with Shea butter and coconut oil. Don’t limit your hair product selection only to the ethnic sections of the store. Dont use so much heat on your hair. Wash hair no more than 1x per week and learn to use conditioner in between washes. Products i recommend: Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Shampoo and conditioner, Doo Groo Mega Thick Growth Oil, Vitamin E oil (can purchase this at CVS). Deep Condition once a week, wear satin cap at night or sleep on satin pillow cases. Keep straightened hair wrapped. Use 100% boar bristle brush only, use wide toothed combs when combing hair. Oil scalp every other day/night. NEVER EVER USE DR. MIRACLE’S!!!! It’s a load of CRAP!

  11. QUESTION:
    Any tips on making hair grow or stimulating hair growth?
    I used to have really thick hair, I had an iron deficiency and suffered some hair loss, so its thinned out considerably.

    I was wondering if anyone knew any way for my hair to get thicker? Maybe a way to stimulate the growth of new hair or something along the lines of making it thicker?

    • ANSWER:
      For Hair & Nails:

      Biotin is what you need.
      You can get biotin in foods as well as in vitamin supplements.
      After all, it’s not what you put ON your nails/body, it’s what you put IN your body.
      Biotin also works with hair growth :-)

      Make sure you drink plenty of water every day.

      Good Luck.

  12. QUESTION:
    Are there natural ways to encourage hair growth for my four year old?
    My daughter’s hair has not grown more than an inch in the past 2 years. Her hair is very very short and has not grown much since she was 1 year old. My pediatrician does not seem concerned and said that most girls hair starts to really grow at 3-4 years old. I give her a multivitamin each day and she eats well. Are there any other natural things I can do to help encourage hair growth? Obviously, I am looking for “safe” natural ideas for a child.

    • ANSWER:
      I also have a 4 year old who’s hair just doesn’t seem to grow. She had her first cut when she was 2.5 and even then it was just to tidy it up, not because it was long. She was basically bald until she was 1, then just “peach fuzz” for another 8 months after that.

      We cut her hair about once every 7 months. Her last cut was in July, 2010 and I swear it hasn’t even grown an inch since then!

      If she’s eating fine and you don’t have concerns about anything else, then don’t worry about it. It’ll come along with time.

      I also have a 2 year old who was born with a head full of hair and gets a trim every 2 mos. or less.

      Kids are all different!

    • ANSWER:
      I don’t know home remedy but in salons there are epilation things .. they take the hair out from the roots so if they do it like 3 or 4 times they go away… (or become very thin, short and colorless) (it’s a bit painful but not very )
      they don’t shave they just take it off individual hair.. (it;’s like 40$ per hour, and every time you do it the hair growth reduces ) … I tried the laser, but they said they need to shave then do it. but this doesn’t/..
      creams are thhe same as shaving (they make the hair darker and more)

    What is a good protein supplement for vegetarians for hair growth?
    I am a vegetarian, and my hair doesn’t grow very fast at all. When I did eat meat, I didn’t have this problem, so I was wondering if there is a supplement I could take to not only increase my intake but stimulate my hair growth.

    Does anyone know of a safe, effective vitamin or supplement?

      My hair has never grown fast, even when I did eat meat. (I’m a vegetarian also). I’ve been wanting longer hair for a while and it grows so slowly. So I started taking multivitamins. I think this has been helping…

    What vitamins should i take for hair growth?
    Im trying to get my hair to grow and im going to get some vitamins. So witch ones should i take for faster hair growth? Biotin? Silica? ………. What works the best?

    • ANSWER:
      None.

      Per NIH website and other research site, nothing you ingest will make hair grow faster. A healthy diet including vitamins will help hair be stronger, but not grow faster. The sales media has lied to the public for years above buying “heath” products to do what they will not.

      Those products useless use in excess will not hurt you, however they will make someone else richer off you money.

      Go to the Nation Institution of Health and research from there outward to other sites.

    What is the best vitamin for hair growth?
    I know its not going to work overnight but my hair is shoulder length and seems like it is not growing what is the best vitamin to help with healthy hair growth?

    • ANSWER:
      Definetly biotin! But i also higly recommend hair,skin and nails formula you can get them from puritans pride. It has biotin,vitamin a , c,d and E so you have one tablet with everything. Also aside from taking care of your hair from the inside it is crucial that you take care of it on the outside as well to get that healthy growth. I recommend washing atleast 1x week with a shampoo that doesnt contain sulfate ( sulfate strips the hair cuticles and drys out your hair), deep condition with every wash with heat for atleast 15 minutes.Use a leave-in conditioner and try using less direct heat , such as blow drying and flat ironing because this will cause heat damage and obviously damage your hair making it hard to grow healthy and strong. Try airdrying it will help your hair grow nice and thick. Also keep your ends moisturized and try not to have them rub against your shirts or coat because this will cause split ends. I recommend a light oil such as carrot oil for your ends and scalp. For deep conditioner you can try neutrogena triple moisture and for a shampoo try coconut milk shampoo which can be found at your local indian store. I know you only asked about a good vitamin .. but in order to grow healthy long hair you need to take care of it inside and out. you can also try this forum www.longhaircareforum.com this is where i learned alot about healthy hair care. I hope I have helped! if there is anything else feel free to message me

    Will this alone help my hair?
    My hair has thinned over the year and I have about one third of what I originally had.
    Is there anything else I can do to build up thickness or re-growth?

    • ANSWER:
      Why exactly are you anemic in the first place? Is this the result of heavy periods? If so, you need management for that too, otherwise you will become deficient again. Also increase your dietary intake of iron (e.g. dark green vegetables, meat and iron-fortified bread, etc).

      Once your anemia is resolved, the symptoms (in your case hair changes) should be too.

    I’ve heard that taking Biotin is good for hair growth but I’m always a little weary about taking pills.
    Has any one tried Biotin with good results? Also, any other tips on faster hair growth?

    • ANSWER:
      I would not recommend things that advertise themselves as “for hair growth.” How fast your hair grows depends a lot on your genes, but there are things that you do to speed you the growth. Make sure that you eat plenty of fruits and veggies! Drink lots of water and you might want to take multivitamins. Also, have your hair clipped at least every 2 months to keep it healthy and deep condition your hair once a week (leave the conditioner in your hair for 30-45 minutes before rinsing it.)
      You should see the growth of your hair speed up in no time!

      Good LucK!

  31. QUESTION:
    What is a good vitamin/supplement to take for promoting hair growth?
    My hair is not as thick/long as it used to be and natural growth is not working for me.I have been taking a vitamin made by GNC specifically for women’s hair growth and it is not working.I need a vitamin that will make my hair thicker.help!

    • ANSWER:
      Vitamins do not “make your hair grow” any more than the natural process in your body does. Vitamins are essential to healthy hair which promotes longer hair, by keeping the hair on your head healthy decreasing split ends, dryness, unness breakage etc, your hair can then keep the goodness and add to it with its natural growth.

      Essentials for hair growth are your B-vitamins (3,5,6), Iron, Vitamin C and E, fatty acids (found in fish oils and other oils) Wheat germ oil also, B-Carotene, and PROTEIN (the makeup of your hair). Becareful not to provide too much protien (1/week treatment is perfect). Protein treatments are great for immediate repair, I recommend a good old fashion egg or organic products like PHYTO (they make an egg and protein treatment). If you use a real egg be sure to rinse with cool-semi cold water or you’ll have a hair omlet.

      Some ppl benefit from long term sulfur shampoos because sulfur is great for the hair drandruff. (Dandruff shampoos)

      I highly recommend the PHYTO line, O’JON, and NIOXIN. The first two are versatile with hair texture and race. I’m black and I’ve also used NIOXIN but it is for thinner lighter straighter hair like causcasian. O’JON does have more moisture and is catered to women of culture i.e. Chaldean, Indian, African-American because it provides more moisture than do caucasian hair products.

      I suggest a rest period of about two weeks where you don’t blowdry or curl and you wear your hair natural , this helps me cleanse my hair.

      I also highly and cannot stress enough to discontinue the use of products based in alcohol (usually second or third on the ingredient list) this includes cheap gels and hair sprays. If hair spay and gel is essential to your style then make sure you protect your hair with conditioners.

      Definitely for me – the obvious – working out, drinking 3 liters of water a day, balancing my stress and getting sleep (with a satin/silk sleeping bonnet).

  32. QUESTION:
    How can i speed up my hair growth?

    • ANSWER:
      I’ve been looking into this a lot recently for myself. Hair normally grows about half an inch each month, but it’s different for everyone. To help it along, get a vitamin supplement called Biotin or one labeled for Hair, skin and nails. The Hair, skin and nails multivitamin has a combination of vitamins and minerals that all work together. They can be found in any drug store.

    • ANSWER:
      Hey.

      Of u wanna get away from the chemicals that can destroy ur hair i suggest u dont BUY any ready-made products at all. use the natural ingredients.Hair growth has been a concern 2 many people. During the late 1900′s people mostly used 2 use products like milk or oil or raw egg or coconut water. Even tho some of this sounds iky like the egg it really does help. all u have 2 do is choose 1 of these apply n massage ur scalp with it n let it sit for abt an hour or so. then wash it of. do this for 3 weeks n ur hair should have a major change. Ooh n if ur using oil try hot coconut oil. but again this used 2 b done by people earlier but now we have chemicals that give us satisfaction for a while but could damage ur hair in the long run.

      Good luck

Any help, tips, advices or personal experiences are welcome!

    Have a nice day and thanks for answering!
    Natural self made products like oils welcomee.

    • ANSWER:
      Cool way to hep your friend but it all comes down to what kind of hair they have. In order to grow your hair reasnably you have to learn to take care of it and understand what texture you have ie selecting the appropriate styles, shampoos, conditioners and maintenance products to keep it healthy. I haven’t found a hairstylist I could trust so I don’t buy into the hype of going to a professional they are more rigged with psycho drama and gossip than helping you with your hair and they don’t switch up the products for each hair type. I have watched caucasions go into the same shop I do and see them get their hair washed with lusters products clearly made for African American women.

      Different strokes for different folks. A person with thin hair will probably lean toward products that provide volume and sheen without making the hair heavy with oily residue. A person w/thick hair may want to invest in products that will lock in moisture. All the while conditioning the scalp for more hair growth.
      As an african american woman with locs I go for products that will lock in moisture and give my hair a clean sheen. I saw an Oprah aftershow where someone was dying to know what she used in her hair and she responded the same way.

      You may find a product that works but every three months you have to change it, because the hair gets use to it. I was using an organic carrot based cream that worked great in the beggining after a while my hair stopped responding to it. Just remember the basics. Eggs, avocado and mayo are good natural conditioners. Lemon, beer and witch hazel are great for dry itchy scalp. and Peppermint and Jazmine tea are great for rinsing the hair.

      Anything in between is you being careful and making a wise choice for healthier hair.

  42. QUESTION:
    How much Biotin is suggested for hair growth?
    I recently finished my Accutane treatment and have suffered from hair loss as a side effect. I heard Biotin helps hair growth and also nail strength. How much is suggested (5 mg, 1000, 3000, 5000)? Is there a formula depending upon weight? (i.e. 107 lbs) Are there any other vitamins suggested? Since Accutane is still in my system, I want to avoid any type of multivitamins since they contain Vitamin A. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I don’t believe any study that says a vitamin will make hair grow faster. Hair is a waste, made up of keratin, a protein that is not alive. Hair grows on average 1/2 inch a month. Biotin may make new growth stronger, but I don’t believe faster. Biotin is found in many common foods such as eggs, milk, carrots, lots of things.
      Nevertheless, here are the recommendations.
      Recommended Adequate Intake* for Biotin
      AgeBiotin (mcg/day)

      DILUTE IT!!! If you put it directly on your head, you can burn yourself and poison your system through skin absorbtion.

    Thank you in advance

    • ANSWER:
      Well hair grow half an inch each month on its own. But what I would suggest it try using

      Mane N’ Tail

      Horse Shampoo and Conditioner. I use it all the timeand it does aid in growing your hair

      faster. I’d
      say massage it into your scalp so it can get to your roots well this increases the blood

      flow helping
      it grow faster. When shampooing and conditioning you should use cold or luke warm water

      on your hair so

      it won’t damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.You can find it at walmart in the pet

      section.
      You should drink plenty of water to help condition your hair.

      Eating Coconut oil also has benifits its not only good for adding nutrients to the hair,

      but its also
      good for weight loss and has many more benifits.
      And don’t forget about exercising, as much as I hate it, it actually helps by increasing

      the blood flow
      and stimulating the hair to grow faster.

      Hope I helped!

    No rude comments, please. I already know when you take dietary supplements for hair growth, ALL your hair grows faster bahaha

    Thanks in advance!!! :)

    • ANSWER:
      You can’t really make your hair grow faster even when taking biotin it promotes healthy hair growth and all that will happen is that your body flushes out any of it that is not absorbed within your system, also it has been known to cause breakouts and for some dehydration, so i would drink lots of water and cut back to the recommended dose if you have any other side effects.

  50. QUESTION:
    What vitamins are good for faster hair growth?
    i cut my bangs and wanted to be able to have faster hair growth.

    • ANSWER:
      BE CAREFUL! Vitamins may assist in hair growth but it doesn’t necessarily mean on your head. You may wake up one morning with a mustache! And you can overdose on iron.


Biotin For Nails And Hair

Acrylic and Gel Nails – Pros and Cons
Choosing between acrylic and gel based nails, is not about good or bad techniques, it’s just about finding the one that suits your needs. You can both have them in any length, any color, and you can even get nail art designs on them. You can get pierces and wear nail rings, or personalize them for the holidays.Artificial nails are very popular, not only because their perfect look, but because make women feel more feminine, secure, and it might help giving up nail biting.

When we meet someone new, usually first things we observe arethehands and nails. That’s why we need polished healthy looking nails. The most popular techniques you can choose from, are the acrylic and gel nails. Here are a fewpros andcons, to help you choose the one that suits you.

Acrylic Nails

Also known as fake nails, the acrylic nails are applied on your natural nails and hardens quite quickly. It is a mixture of a liquid acrylic, that cannot be removed after being applied. It is longer lasting than the gel nails, and it keeps the nail polish on for longer time. It is more popular than the gel nails although it needs monthly maintenance. If the acrylic nails aren’t done professionally, the acrylic nails can look really bad, unnatural and it harms your nails much more than the gel based nails.

Gel Nails

The gel nails are thinner, flexible and clear. Monthly maintenance is required for these ones to, but they are more natural looking than the acrylic nails. It is basically a premixed gel applied on the nails and cured under ultra-violet lights and it needs regular refilling. The gel nails are less durable, and if they break you need a quick appointment to your manicurist. The nail polish also stays on for less time, but at least won’t damage your nails as much as acrylic ones.

Artificial nails are designed to lengthen your nails, to make them stronger and more durable. But keep in mind, whichever technique you would choose, that you need your fingertips in everyday movements, so make sure you have the wright length. The artificial nails are meant to give you a well polished look and complete your style. It also helps you give up nail biting and keeps your nail polish fresh for a long time. You can create nail art on your nails, or even build in crystals and many more accessories. Nail art designs are very popular, not only because the endless styling possibilities, but because you can now customize your nails in different holiday themes or even build in feathers for the most edgy looks. Find the style that matches your personality and enjoy your shiny perfect nails.

  8. QUESTION:
    Im 13, and am going ot get biotin for my hair/nails, what type should I buy, and what’s mg?
    Some say 5000mg, 2500 mg…which should I buy? and how many pills a day? and is that number (x number of mg) in one tablet or the total amount of the bottle?
    THANKS
    I meant MCG not MG
    =]
    is 5000 mcg too much?

    • ANSWER:
      I know I risk angering people here, but like most supplements this will just make your pee strong (and expensive).

      A mcg is a microgram, there are 1000 mcg in a mg (milligram). There are 1000 mg in a gram. A mcg is one one-millionth of a gram.

      A note on Biotin from wiki…
      Biotin supplements are often recommended as a natural product to counteract the problem of hair loss in both children and adults. There are, however, no studies that show any benefit in any case where the subject is not actually biotin deficient. The signs and symptoms of biotin deficiency include hair loss which progresses in severity to include loss of eye lashes and eye brows in severely deficient subjects. Some shampoos are available that contain biotin, but it is doubtful whether they would have any useful effect, as biotin is not absorbed well through the skin.

      Please don’t waste your money.

      good luck!

    • ANSWER:
      Try getting the 1000 mg and taking 3-5 of them. Basically 5 of the 1000mg =1 of the “super” 5000 mg. Most of the hair skin and nail ones dont have enough biotin to be effective. 1000 mg is pretty cheap at target. you get 100 for .50.

    • ANSWER:
      My dermatologist told me to start taking Biotin (about 3 mg a day) when my hair started falling out quicker because of a medication I took. Within days I noticed my hair was only falling out how it normally would have. Now, a year later, my nails are thicker and my hair is much better. It grows faster too and feels thicker, and my hair stylist agrees. The best part is how cheap Biotin is. A bottle of like 100 1mg pills only is about depending on where you go.

    Thank you for answering my question, I appreciate it.
    However, I do want to let you know that in answering your question, I was not trying to offend anyone. I stated that it was only my opinion and I never said that the size does not exist, only that it sounded odd. Odd does not have to be a bad thing. If you are confused about the definition of odd, maybe you should check it out.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/odd

    Interestingly, the definition includes the words unusual (differing from the ordinary), fantastic, extraordinary, rare, and uncommon. It basically just means different. And there is nothing wrong with that. I also recall saying that she is probably very nice looking. I’m not sure why you seemed offended by my answer, but I assure you that I didn’t mean anything by it. Lucky her for having such a unique figure and lucky you for being friends with her and being able to look at her beautiful form.

  18. QUESTION:
    how good is biotin for hair and nails ?
    i like in the UK so where could i buy it from?

    i have weakish nails and i have split ends …

    • ANSWER:
      Biotin is most definately good for hair and nails. If your interested so is A,C and E vitamns. Biotin is already in most hair and nail products and I’m not sure you can buy it as a pure substance, if so it would be very expensive. However good it is, the only way to get rid of split ends is to cut them off, biotin only strengthens hair, nothing can repair it once it has split ends. Biotin will help your weak nails though, however i sugest you purchase nail strengthening nail polishes with biotin as an ingredient.

      I take a hair and nail supplement that has biotiin in it, and the result was healthier hair. And don’t worry, it only shows affect on the hair on your scalp.

  27. QUESTION:
    Does Biotin really help to make hair and nails stronger?
    I’ve been taking it for a couple of months and it seems to have helped but just how much, IDK.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, it is one of those nutrients that takes time, if you’ve only taken it a couple of months, that is only about 1 inch of hair growth next to your scalp. The body can make some of the biotin needed in the intestines from micro-flora, if you’ve taken antibiotics they may have gotten wiped out and need to be replenished, SODs (soil-derived organisms) and a blend of lactobaccilus bacteria are available at health food stores. For faster hair and nail growth, MSM, a form of sulfur needed to keep every cell flexible in the body is good.

    How much does biotin make your hair grow?
    well i just bought the hair& nail growth and it said for every 2 pills it has 833% of daily biotin, which is a lot. so how much will it make my hair grow? in a month? thanks! please help!

    • ANSWER:
      If I tell you, it won’t, would you believe me? Biotin alone is not going to do that for your hair, that’s like have a car and not use gas. You need all the healthy foods from Mother Nature, not just biotin. Do you know what’s in the biotin?
          Biotin – cauliflower, liver, salmon, carrots, bananas, cereals, yeast, and soy flour. Keep in mind that biotin content is reduced when food is cooked or preserved. One YA poster caused her to have major breakouts.

      The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t have to approve supplements — no agency in the United States does. Because of inadequate quality control and inspection, supplements contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, or prescription drugs have been sold to unsuspecting consumers. And FDA rules covering manufacturing quality don’t apply to the companies that supply herbs, vitamins, and other raw ingredients.
      Beginning in February 2008, they experienced one symptom after another: diarrhea, joint pain, HAIR LOSS, lung problems, and fingernails and toenails that fell off. FDA has received numerous reports of harm associated with the use of these products, including stroke, liver injury, kidney failure, heart palpitations, and death. 3-15-11

      According Dr. Melissa Piliang, a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic. Americans spent an estimated 6 million on hair loss products last year, and chances are some of that money was not well spent. Don’t let charming salon owners, seductive ads or fancy gimmicks convince you otherwise.

      CNN, Slate, Consumer Reports, MSN, YAHOO have posted them online for years how people spend billion per year on vitamins and supplements.  According to Everyday Health, here’s an article that will tell you why . . . those PRODUCTS by any other name do NOT WORK.  It is false advertisements.

      If you’ve straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all.
      Google: “Foods for Healthy Hair” – Your hair may be the fastest-growing tissue in the body but, unlike the skin, it cannot repair itself. That is why getting the right balance of vitamins and proteins is imperative. Don’t expect to look like you’ve stepped out of a hair commercial the day after you’ve changed your diet. It is likely to take at least three months before you actually see tangible results.

      Growing healthy hair doesn’t come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more. If you’re in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you’re eating healthy foods. But when hair isn’t growing as fast, it’s because they’ve been tampered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . .

  29. QUESTION:
    Does Biotin make hair grow healthier?
    I was told by a doctor that Biotin helps make hair and nails grow faster, longer and healthier, and it also says so on the internet, does it work well for hair? I got Biotin tablets that I am to take twice a day.

    • ANSWER:
      One pill a day is fine. Too much of a good thing is bad. And yes it makes your hair(ALL of it, arms legs etc)grow faster and healthier as well as your nails.

  30. QUESTION:
    Has anyone taken Biotin a vitamin for hair and nails?
    I have been advised to take one tablet a day which is1000mcg strength are there any side affects.

    • ANSWER:
      Biotin is one of the B Complex vitamins, and is a co-factor for several enzyme systems involved in hair, skin and nail growth and repair, along with other B Complex vitamins. You could take it on its own but you might get more benefit if you took the whole of the Vitamin B Complex.
      No reported side effects:

      http://nutritional-supplement-guides.com/Biotin-Side-Effects.html

      Being a B Vitamin, they are excreted out of the system quickly so don’t reach toxic levels in theory.
      Hope this helps.
      Good luck with the hair/nail growth.

  31. QUESTION:
    How effective is biotin 5000mcg for hair loss?
    My mom just bought it for me today I heard it makes your nails and hair stronger, how effective is it and has it worked for you?

    • ANSWER:
      I’ve been losing my hair for 6 months now (I’m only 21), so I started taking 3000-5000 mcg of Biotin per day. Within 2 weeks I started to notice a little more hair growth, and my nails are pretty hard, too. Unfortunately my hair is still falling out and I can’t figure out why. In your case, though, you may see some improvements. Just make sure you take it with food (this will help with the absorption of the tablets). Either way, it’d be a good idea to see a doctor, if you haven’t already. There’s many tests they can do which may be able to pinpoint the cause of your loss, or at least rule out some causes.

      Best of luck to you. I know how painful this issue is :(

  32. QUESTION:
    What does biotin do for hair, skin, and nails?

    • ANSWER:
      Biotin can be used to treat weak, splitting or thin fingernails. It can also improve the health of your hair, and help to strengthen it. It provides nourishment to all three – your hair, skin, and nails. Biotin can help relieve dry, itchy skin.
      I’m familiar with a few studies where Biotin has been shown to increase the thickness of nails by an average of 20% over the course of 4-6 months of daily usage. The recommended dosage is anywhere from300 – 3,000mcg per day – depending on where you look for information. Here is an article you may find helpful?

      Nails are dead protein..if you get a manicure with those acrilic nails, the nails will strengthen underneath and not contact anything that could potentially cause it to weaken or break. That is a trick…also you could get nail hardener by witchcraft…vitamins and diet do nothing at all

  36. QUESTION:
    Who’s drinks biotin for hair growth?
    I’m taking biotin for skin/hair/nail support of 5000mcg. It says to drink 1 a day and I was wondering if I drink 2 a day will it help my hair grow faster and stronger? Or will that just mess up my body? And is there any other way that my hair can grow fast and healthy? Ever since I cut it, it doesn’t seem to grow back :( help pleaseeeee!

    • ANSWER:
      Well hair grow half an inch each month on its own. But what I would suggest it try using Mane N’ Tail Horse Shampoo and Conditioner. I use it all the timeand it does aid in growing your hair faster. I’d
      say massage it into your scalp so it can get to your roots well this increases the blood flow helping
      it grow faster. When shampooing and conditioning you should use cold or luke warm water on your hair so it won’t damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.You can find it at walmart in the pet section.
      You should drink plenty of water to help condition your hair.

      Eating Coconut oil also has benifits its not only good for adding nutrients to the hair, but its also
      good for weight loss and has many more benifits.
      And don’t forget about exercising, as much as I hate it, it actually helps by increasing the blood flow
      and stimulating the hair to grow faster.

      Hope I helped!

  37. QUESTION:
    How much Biotin is needed for successful hair growth?
    I have seriously thinning hair at the top of my head (17/f), from being treated w/ chemicals; stress, etc. Currently, I am taking GNC Hair, Nails and Skin formula + Centrum Performace (basic vitamin) Would it be wise to take in more Biotin? (my shampoo + conditioner are also biotin ^.^) I am very desprate to restore my hair back to the way it used to be (full and thick). Any advice?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi

      Yes you should definitely add more biotin. I am currently taking 3000 mcg each day and I might even increase it to 5000 mcg. You should probably take about 3000 to 5000 mcg of Biotin per day. Its probably best if they’re spaced out throughout the day each time with a meal. I take 1000 mcg with each meal. But make sure you also take a multivitamin because your body uses some of these vitamins including Iron, to break down the biotin and allow your body to use it for hair growth and other things.

      The best thing about Biotin is that you cannot overdose. No matter how much you take, it won’t intoxicate your body. If you happen to take excess of it, your body will just flush the excess and get rid of it so you have nothing to worry about.

      As for the best biotin capsule out there, I think it’s any one that’s vegan because unlike the others, they don’t contain gelatin, which can be harmful in some cases. The one that I am currently taking is by Solgar which can be found at your local Vitamin Shoppe, or you can even get it online:

      http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/store/en/browse/sku_detail.jsp?id=SL-1565

      As for the shampoo, I don’t know anyone that used biotin shampoo that actually helped their hair. I am currently using Sweet Sunnah Organic Black Seed Herbal Henna Shampoo and Sweet Sunnah Organic Black Seed Oil Hair Conditioner. I’ve only been using them for about two weeks so far but I already notice that hair doesn’t fall out anymore. You can find this shampoo and conditioner at: http://www.sweetsunnah.com/cgi-bin/category/HC

      Read the reviews on them if you like: http://www.sweetsunnah.com/cgi-bin/item/10016

      http://www.sweetsunnah.com/cgi-bin/item/10017

      Anyways to sum it up, I think you should continue taking the GNC hair and nails as well as the Centrum multivitamin and add biotin because the biotin the the GNC hair and nails will probably restore your hair but it only has 3000 mcg. If you take that in the morning with your breakfast, then you should take another 1000 mcg of biotin with lunch and 1000 mcg of biotin with your dinner. That way, you can speed up the process. That is why I’m going to switch to 5000 mcg of biotin daily. As for the shampoo, I highly recommend the Sweet Sunnah shampoo and conditioner. Even though they’re a bit pricy, they lather much and they’re worth it for the results.

      I wish you the best of luck and if you have anymore questions on biotin or hair growth post more questions and I’ll try to answer them for you.

      Good luck once again. :)

  38. QUESTION:
    Can a 13 year old take Nature’s Bounty hair, skin, and nails? (biotin supplements)?
    I’m 13 and my parents bought Nature’s Bounty hair skin and nails which is biotin. It says not for persons under 18, but looking online I’ve found it’s fine to take biotin at 13 and even younger. It says to take 3 pills daily which is 3000 mcg, so how many should I take? Is there any side effects of biotin that could harm me? It also has collagen and vitamin c

    • ANSWER:
      The line about under 18 use is for their legal protection, not because it’s harmful.

      If you happen to be small (110 lbs or less) you might choose to take 2000mg a day rather than the adult dose.

      FWIW, I took it for six months on my doctor’s recommendation when I had issues with my nails, and saw absolutely no difference. So it may not be providing anything you’re not getting already, and your body will simply excrete what it can’t use.

  39. QUESTION:
    biotin to hair skin and nails.?
    i used a bottle of Biotin(about 3 a day) for about a month or a little more. i didnt see a huge difference though so I switched to GNC’s Hair Skin and Nails. I’ve only been taking them for 2 days how long until I get results on my hair growth?

    • ANSWER:
      Biotin is water soluble hun, which means excess that your body cannot use is washed out of the body in your urine, and the human body can only use about 300mcg of biotin a day- so it doesn’t matter how much of it you take, its for how long you take it.

  40. QUESTION:
    My hair and nails are growing fast AFTER Years of supplements?
    For four years I have taken biotin, hair skin nails formula, twin labs womens vitamins, chasteberry (for female balancing) Extra Vita C and D3 and calcium(when I remember). I seen no improvement and alot of money being spent on these things so stopped about 4 months ago. Now my hair is longer than ever, and my nails are too. I am not pregnant(not possible). Naturally I appear to be doing better than all those “premium” supplements from mailorders. Does it make sense.
    I noticed dramatic lengths now, four months after NO vitamins.

    • ANSWER:
      some times when the body becomes tolerant to supplements it will block them out. but if you have been supplementing them with “drugs” or vitamins, it will conflict, causing the body to produce more of its own natural enzymes and cells. i can only think, when you stopped your body was still producing its only natural everything…..and booom!!! growth…..

  45. QUESTION:
    does biotin vitamins work for thinning hair?
    i know it helps hair & nails grow but does it help with thinning & loss of hair. i’m losing a lot of hair. everytime i wash my hair i lose approx. 30+ strands and the top of my head is really thinning and i’m freaking out.

    • ANSWER:
      yes! biotin can help you!

      but anyway as we know – hair loss can be caused by many different reasons! Find out the actual cause of hair loss! There are many causes of loss of hair such as stress, poor nutrition ,medications, thyroid dysfunctions, illness, fungal infections ,hormonal problems, to mention a few.

      year ago my husband suffered very much from hair loss too and he started trying everything you can imagine to stop his hair loss. the things that really worked for him was:

      1) Vitamin A – an anti-oxidant which promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp;

      2) Vitamin E stimulates circulation. Good blood circulation in the scalp is important in keeping hair follicles productive. The ‘B’ vitamins contribute to melanin, which gives hair its healthy color and also stimulates blood circulation;

      3) massage is also beneficial. Massage stimulates circulation. As already noted, good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Experts suggest a few minutes of daily head massage by hand. Circulation through massage may be improved by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base with massage;

      4) Try rubbing your scalp with garlic juice, Onion Juice or Ginger Juice(you can either of one out of three, Do not mix any of two or three);

      5) also he used herbal treatment – TrichoZed
      It is a good product that helps prevent hair loss and it is an FDA approved product. I think it is very important!

      It worked and still works for him!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry TrichoZed but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.trichozed.info/why.php

      It enhances hair growth by blocking DHT (Dihydrotestostrone) – a major cause of hair loss!

      good luck!

      not only my and my husband`s own personal experience

  46. QUESTION:
    can i take a 2500 mlg biotin with a multi vitamen for skin hair and nails??
    a multi vitamen that (probablly) already has biotin in it.
    bcz i need something for hair loss and they say biotin is the best
    and doesnt make u gain weigh !

    • ANSWER:
      My ex-coworker took it and it worked, I bought some, but never took it like I was supposed to. I know it works, but you have to stick to it. If anyone else has any other suggested supplements for nail and hair growth, please advise. I have been looking for a the “best” because I want longer hair. My hair is naturally curly and gets tangled a lot; I end up brushing a clumps of it out in the shower. It also drinks up moisture FAST. I started using some silk drops by FX to smooth the cuticle and close the pores, and it seems to help. Now all I need is the mega hair grower.

  47. QUESTION:
    Is biotin bad for you? and does it make ur body hair grow like crazy?
    Yea, I just read on someone’s question that biotin makes ur hair and nails grow really fast..

    Right now, my hair is so unbelievably ugly so i kinda want it to grow faster, so before i go to the chemist and buy this biotin thing, i just want to know if biotin actually works and is healthy and stuff

    i read online that biotin isin’t supposed to be used for people with kidney problems, but thats the same for most meds isin’t it?

    more importantly, i don’t want to become an ape so i’m mainly concerned that if i begin to take biotin, hair will start growing on my back?

    is it actually proven that biotin makes ur hair and nails grow fast?

    • ANSWER:
      Biotin is a B Vitamin and is a required nutrient for basic daily health. There are no cautions, warnings, or interactions listed as long as you follow the recommended dosage… what you’ve read online about it being bad for the Kidneys is mostly when you take too high of a dose. The B Vitamins are all water-soluble, so if the body doesn’t need it, it will be excreted.

      That being said, there are some drugs that interfere with any number of supplements so if you’re taking any drugs, you’ll want to check with a pharmacist or a doctor. Doctors and pharmacists both have access to a database of drug and supplement interactions and they can tell you quickly if you can safely take them together or not…. anyone here will just have a best guess from searching on the internet (which isn’t always accurate, as we all know) ;-) Good luck and I hope I helped!

  48. QUESTION:
    do you think that Biotin really work for hair and nails? do i have to talk to my doctor before i buy it?

    • ANSWER:
      biotin is found naturally in certain foods such as tomatos,cucumbers,onions and cabbage to name but a few. i would try looking for shampoos,hand creams or nail conditioner designed for different conditions depending on what the problem is.

  49. QUESTION:
    Does Biotin skin, hair, and nail pills help get rid of acne?
    I went to Cosco a couple of days ago and I found some pills that are supposed to help your hair grow thicklong, nails grow longer, and it’s also for skin. I was wondering if I take these pills will my acne go away as one of the results? Any advice?

    • ANSWER:
      I started taking it a couple weeks ago, the 5000 dose. I have been drinking a good amount of water with it. So far, I haven’t noticed a difference in my acne good or bad, I’ve heard it causes some people acne and helps clear up other people’s skin. Everybody’s body handles it differently, so you’ll have to try it to see. I take minocyclin (prescribed for acne) with it so that may have something to do with it. Good luck!

  50. QUESTION:
    Will biotin with 5000 mcg still help my hair and nails grow?
    I initially planned on getting Biotin with 1000 mcg because I read its label on the walgreens website and it specifically reads “Dietary support for healthy hair & nails.” BUT—I was in a rush and accidentally grabbed the wrong kind of biotin—biotin 500. And its label reads nothing but boosting one’s metabolism, etc. It has nothing pertaining to hair/nail growth, so I’m kind of stuck here. : Should I go back & buy Biotin 1000 mcg? I can’t return the Biotin 5000mcg b/c I had already taken a pill before realizing that it wasn’t the one I wanted.

    • ANSWER:
      Here is something you might like:
      Ease Dry Skin, Brittle Nails, & Damaged Hair

      Type 2 Collagen
      * Supplies the building blocks for healthy skin and hair
      * Support stronger, healthier looking hair

      A natural protein, collagen provide the structural foundation for bones, muscles, skin and more.

      As you age, your body produces less collagen and what collagen it does produce is not as high quality as it once was. That’s where type 2 collagen can help.

  6. QUESTION:
    can someone tell me what oils are good for stimulating hair growth i loss my edges and the middle of my hair?
    i have natural hair no chemicals looking for a few hair growth receipe also

    • ANSWER:
      We experience hair loss because hair follicles have become blocked (harmful shampoos are mainly responsible) and so prevent hair growth. Sometimes they are experienced as painful itching spots. Oils can help a lot but you also need to unblock the follicles by brushing. Extra virgin olive oil is as good as any other oil. First massage oil into scalp then brush every part of scalp with a natural bristle brush so that it stimulates scalp. OK if it reddens scalp but stop short of making scalp too sore.
      As you brush some shedding and breakage may occur at first but will gradually stop then new hairs will appear and will be weak looking and sparse. Keep up the brushing and do not be concerned if brushing uproots them, as they WILL re-appear even stronger. It’s best to use a PALM HELD oval military brush with 1/2 ” medium stiff boar bristles. See them on Amazon. e.g. DIANE Pure Bristle Military Brush (Model: 8114.).
      Initially, for two weeks, it’s best to do at night and leave oil on overnight and wash off in morning. Put a towel on pillow so you do not soil it. Later on do oiling/brushing once a day (anytime). Leave for 30 min then remove oil by washing using a totally non harming shampoo.

    What ways are there to stimulate hair growth?
    I am in a play and the director asked me to grow a beard and mustache. I can grow a mustache, but naturally it takes a few months to grow it. I was wondering if there are any cheap ways to stimulate facial hair growth; the play is in about a month and a half.What ways

    • ANSWER:
      Wow, two beard growth questions.

      For a play, you should be able to supplement the growth with makeup or fake fur.

      To stimulate growth, try rubbing your face to stimulate the folicles. Use a kerotin based conditioner to promote thickness and strength. Brush or tug on the beard once it comes in to promote length.

    • ANSWER:
      Hello :) okay so here are some vitamins that help:
      *Vitamin E (increases blood flow and oxygen to the scalp therefore making it grow faster get the Spring valley brand.) *Vitamin C (found in oranges and strawberries maintains hair health keeps it healthy.)
      *Vitamin B6 and B12. (Makes it grow bc its needed for hair to grow) *Bananas have potassium and natural biotin. And if u dye your hair or highlight it or use any form of heat i strongly suggest holding off until it is long and healty bc the more it breaks off the longer it will take to grow. So if i were u i’d buy a pair of trimming scissors. A trim is a snip off the ends nothing more than that. Take womens one a day multivitamin it has alot of vitamins be patient dont stress in 3 months u should see a difference. Put it up if its long enough. Think nothing of it. Distract yourself from it. Read a good book The Bible really is a page turner when u get into it. God bless u and have a nice day.

    take daily to increase energy. prescribed by doc. Stimulate hair growth on head?

    • ANSWER:
      There is nothing that you can buy that will help with hair loss – so Mary is sending you to a site that will take your money and offer you no help at all.

      As has already been said, testosterone will actually increase hair loss. There are 3 general reasons why people lose hair:

      1/ Hereditary – you inherited the baldness from your parents – could even be your mom although she may never have been bald;

      2/ aging and

      3/ excess testosterone (which can also be an hereditary issue).

      The best way to reverse baldness (if it is a testosterone problem is to lower your testosterone but that can have other negative consequences such as laying down more fat, starting to get manboobs, voice gets a bit higher – in other words you start to become more feminine – the process of messing up the estrogen/testosterone balance in your body can be that you start to look more female like).

      Both males and females have testosterone and estrogen in their systems and if you mess with the balance you can start to look like the other sex.

    What are some home remedies and vitamins to stimulate hair growth?
    I’m a 14 year old girl and no I’m not going bald or anything I just want my hair to grow longer/faster. Any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      Teenagers who are very active, should have their nails and hair growing NORMALLY, unless they are taking something that messes up their system.

      If it’s not, something in your system is not working right. If your nails are growing normally, but not your hair, then it’s how you’re styling your hair.

      Your hair is the first sign that something had gone wrong.

      You stimulate your hair when you massage your hair with shampoo.

      It may grow very slowly or none at all if you’ve straightened your hair in the past.

      You get all your vitamins & minerals & proteins FREE from the good foods you eat from Mother Nature, not made by man, and no shampoo can help grow hair, not even those made for horses. Horses don’t abuse their hair, using heating tools, and they eat better than people, but it won’t add more hair & make their hair longer faster.Shampoo intended for animals may contain insecticides or other medications for treatment of skin conditions or parasite infestations such as fleas or mange. These must never be used on humans.
      Prenatal vitamins don’t make your hair grow. Pregnant women have to start taking care of their bodies when they’re pregnant, meaning stop smoking, drinking, dyeing or perming their hair SO OF COURSE their hair start growing again. But it has nothing to do with their hair, it has something to do to help the development of their unborn child.

      Foods for Healthy Hair – the website had moved, type it in.

      http://health.yahoo.com/experts/healthie…

      Fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains all supply B-complex vitamins, like biotin, folic acid and vitamin B12, as well as vitamin A, copper and zinc, which are all necessary for remedying dry, brittle hair and nourishing a healthy scalp. Some prime examples of foods that contain these nutrients for healthy hair include:
      ·                     Folic Acid – asparagus, beets, broccoli, avocados, Brussels sprouts, beans, chickpeas, soybeans, lentils, oranges, fresh peas, turkey and spinach.
      ·                     Biotin – cauliflower, liver, salmon, carrots, bananas, cereals, yeast, and soy flour. Keep in mind that biotin content is reduced when food is cooked or preserved.
      ·                     Vitamin B12 – foods rich in vitamin B12 include animal protein (such as beef, lamb, and veal), clams and oysters, liver, fish, milk, and egg yolks.
      •Vitamin A – butter, egg yolks, fish, fortified milk, organ meats (such as liver), and dark green, orange, red, and yellow fruits and vegetables, which all contain beta-carotene.
      •Copper – oysters and other shellfish, whole grains, beans, nuts, potatoes, and organ meats are good sources of copper. Dark leafy greens, dried fruits such as prunes, cocoa, black pepper, and yeast are also sources of copper in the diet.
      •Zinc – beef, eggs, liver, pork, poultry, and oysters. Also is also abundant in other high-protein foods, like cheese, legumes and nuts.
      If having a lush, beautiful mane of healthy hair is important to you, don’t just look to hot oil treatments and shine emollients. Eat these foods for healthy hair and say “bye-bye” to bad hair days.

    does anyone know a product that’s good for stimulating hair growth?

    • ANSWER:
      If you are wanting to rejuvinate the hair follicle, then ANY shampoo/conditioner that promotes that will work. Mane and Tail has the best results. But….if you have male pattern baldness, then these products will not work. You lack a hormone called DHT, and without it the circulation that generates growth in the hair shaft is arrested. See a hair specialist and discuss the options that are available in your financial range. If this isn’t a possibility, then don’t worry. Losing your hair is not the end of the world. Keep it cut to a length that will blend in with the loss. But…WHATEVER… you do PLEASE don’t wear a comb-over or a toupee’, they are just unnatural and unattractive.

Skin Hair And Nails Vitamins

Biotine for the growth of hair – advantages of vitamin of biotine in the care of skin and hair
Using the biotine for the growth of hair, of the possibilities of the loss of hair are appreciably reduced. The also known vitamin of biotine under the name of biotine 7 is part of products of care of skin and hair.
The advantages of the biotine are numerous: it nourishes the skin, reinforces nails and hair. The biotine is good for the skin, its insufficiency makes with skin with dermatite inclined and fungic infections. The dry skin is a possible sign of insufficiency of biotine and thus is the dry and fragile hair.

Loss of hair and biotine – what is upwards with that?

It is of one hundred percent of truth that the biotine plays a big role in the prevention of the loss of hair. According to nutritionnists the biotine is an important vitamin for the growth of hair. It is also strongly recommended to be necessary for biotine in addition to other medcial treatments such Minoxidil, Poscar or Propecia.
The loss of biotine and hair are related inter. The insufficiency of the biotine can cause unhealthy and the rupture of the hair, which could finally lead to the loss of hair. The biotine is component important not only with the new growth of hair but also maintains the skin and the nails in perfect health.
More Natural recipes for skin care and hair:naturalrecipes-skincare.blogspot.com
To try to avoid eggs believed in your mode since the high amount of believed egg protein contained binds makes the biotine and it nonavailable to the body which causes alternatively the insufficiency of the loss of biotine and of hair. To always employ the shampoo, which is enriched with biotine and silica to prevent the loss of hair.

The supplements are necessary to reconstitute the B12 levels, which will prevent the loss of hair completely. Since the biotine and the hair the loss are closely bound, it is strongly recommended to regularly include the biotine in your food. Food containing many biotine are the egg yolks and the liver. To obtain should consume to you thousands of daily calories of what your hair has need. This is why I propose supplements of biotine.

People with the type of blood has do not have the capacity to absorb vitamins of B. Because we know already the biotine, a family member of the vitamin B, is requested for the growth of hair. To twice a day add the high amounts from 5 to 8 grams with your food will prevent the loss of hair intensively. No side effect is known.

The loss of biotine and hair are closely dependant. So good food completion of the biotine include yeast of brewers, pea, oats, soya, nut, seeds of sunflower, pea, bulgur and the brown rice can certainly help to prevent the loss of hair.

You should realize that the people with the heartburn, the acid backward flow, or the GERD which takes antiacids can absorb the biotine less and the loss of hair can certainly occur. To thus avoid the drugs the cash of antiacids for a better assimilation of prevention of loss of biotine and hair.

The biotine is food of hair! If you suffer me from the loss of hair to strongly recommend to take a supplement of biotine and to employ a shampoo enriched by biotine.

    Im trying to grow my hair quicker and im wondering if the nail skin and hair vitamins in Walmart really work? Or is it the same thing as taking a multivitamin(which im currently doing)?

    • ANSWER:
      No. There’s a reason why I have many sources.

      Save your money instead of buying hair growth products or supplements. Vogue Dec. 2010 issue has a section on biotin, supplements, etc. .
      The FDA don’t even approve of them. Because of inadequate quality control and inspection, supplements contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, or prescription drugs have been sold to unsuspecting consumers. And FDA rules covering manufacturing quality don’t apply to the companies that supply herbs, vitamins, and other raw ingredients.
      Beginning in February 2008, they experienced one symptom after another: diarrhea, joint pain, hair loss, lung problems, and fingernails and toenails that fell off.

      http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/Consumer…

      MSN “Vitamins Can Do More Harm Than Good.”

      http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16655168/wid…

      According Dr. Melissa Piliang, a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic. Americans spent an estimated 6 million on hair loss products last year, and chances are some of that money was not well spent. Don’t let charming salon owners, seductive ads or fancy gimmicks convince you otherwise.

      CNN, Slate, Consumer Reports, MSN, YAHOO have posted them online for years how people spend billion per year on vitamins and supplements.  According to Everyday Health, here’s an article that will tell you why . . . those PRODUCTS by any other name do NOT WORK.  It is false advertisements.

      Google: “Foods for Healthy Hair” – the website had moved, type it in. Two others also:

      Growing healthy hair doesn’t come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more. If you’re in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you’re eating healthy foods. But when hair isn’t growing as fast, it’s because they’ve been tempered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . . My hair grew from bob to waist length in 3 1/2 – 4 years in HS.

      Sources:
      I know hair. I have over 4 decades of hair know-how. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy hair down to my knees. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing in the 80′s & 90′s. I’ve known people in their 30′s whose hair stopped growing from ironing their hair in the 70′s. When I was in HS, my hair grew from bob to waist length in 3 1/2 years (not bra strap as stated earlier).

    Do the hair, skin & nail vitamins work? & what exaclty do they do for you’re skin hair and nails?
    Do they help with damaged hair and spilt ends? & what do they do for you’re skin & nails?

    • ANSWER:
      vitamins C: A: K & E are best for your skin & hair: as well as biotin: gelatin & omega-3′s

      health starts @ the root: so they won’t do anything for split ends :: those can only be cut off to prevent further splitting & damage

    • ANSWER:
      I do not think the formulation of vitamins will require you take them with food. I am old, and I have taken multivitamins for many years. The ingredients in the vitamins are not affected whether taken with or without food. I take my vitamins after breakfast that are advertised for hair and nail nourishment. Some people have sensitive stomach-lining, and taken vitamins on an empty stomach may cause heartburn.

    i wanna grow my hair and nails and apparently caster oil and hair skin and nails vitamins are good the people who made those videos on youtube are american so where can i get it in the uk?

    • ANSWER:
      Boots should sell castor oil. A tip as well if you’re planning on using castor oil on your skin with the Oil Cleaning Method is to only use a tiny amount of castor oil to grape seed oil or olive oil. Begin with a few drops and see how that goes. It can be really strong and drying stuff.

      Also, olive oil works a treat on your hair! Doesn’t make it greasy and it is one of the few oils that actually penetrate the hair shaft.

      Good luck!

    thank you:)

    • ANSWER:
      Do not ever take prenatals unless you are actually pregnant. You can actually overdose on vitamins and minerals. There are some serious health risks. I have looked this up and know this for a fact. Vitamin A is one of the several you should worry about. Your hair is going to grow around 1/2 every month. You should get it trimmed though every 3-4mth , only take about a inch off at most. This will insure deadends and split ends do not creep up the hair shaft and cause more damage over time. Keep your hair moisturized. Use a widetooth comb instead of a brush and DO NOT use hot tools on your hair because they cause split ends and breakage which is horrible for your hair. Take a multivitamin. They are good for you and you do not have to worry about health complications. One more thing about prenatals is that they can cause nausea and vomiting. Ok best of luck to you!

      One more thing: Some good natural moisturizers for your hair are olive oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, and jojoba oil. You can use all of these on your hair to help moisturization which will help with the growth process. Also raw egg and mayonnaise is very good for your hair to. =)

  22. QUESTION:
    Hair, skin, and nails vitamins- do they work?
    I’m looking for hair growth and i recently picked up some vitamins at Target that are called Hair, skin, and nails by origin (for women). I’ve never heard of the brand before, but if they do the job i’ll take them!

    Does anyone have experience with the vitamins? Do they work? And if so, how long before you see results?

    • ANSWER:
      YES YES YES, they work. Just taking a regular daily vitamin and eating a protein-rich diet will help as well, along with drinking lots of water.

      But YES, those hair/skin/nail vitamins DO work, as do prenatals. In fact, I’ve taken prenatals myself to make my hair grow faster (although I’m lucky, my hair grows an average of 3/4″ a month, and most people is 1/2″ per month… and when I took the prenatals mine grew about 1 inch per month!)

      Go for it! And good luck!

      (ps… make sure you’re getting regular trims, like once every 3 months or so to keep your hair growing out nice so it don’t get split and frizzy and yucky… even if it’s just 1/2″ off or so… it helps immensely in how quickly your hair will grow, too!)

      Good luck!!! :)

  23. QUESTION:

    • ANSWER:
      Your best bet to promote growth is to take biotin,msm or good ole’prenatal vitamins.these are cheaper alternatives to vitamins for hsn,but they have great if not better results.I started off taking the prenatals for hair growth,and after about two weeks my nails grew stronger,so therefor,much longer.my skin is clearer,i have a lot less breakouts.my hair has always been thick but i’ve started to experience a lot of shedding so someone suggested the vitamins and they do work.i swear by biotin,but one downside to taking pn vitamins,you may gain weight.i gained a couple of pounds but it’s worth it! hth

    is it ok for a 13 year old to take hair skin and nails vitamins?
    im 13 and i was wondering if it is ok for me to take the hair, skin, and nails vitamins. help!

    • ANSWER:
      A general daily vitamin would be good and will help hair, skin and nails. You don’t need a special vitamin for those areas. A daily vitamin you buy at the drug store is balanced so that you don’t get too much of any one vitamin. Some vitamins flush right out of our system every day, like Vitamin C. Other vitamins, A,D, E, and K are stored in our bodies and taking too much of them can hurt you. Play it safe and get a daily vitamin at the drug store.

  34. QUESTION:
    Do prenatal vitamins and hair, skin and nails vitamins really make your hair longer?
    [: I want my hair to grow out a little bit faster, will taking these help me?

    • ANSWER:
      No. Prenatal vitamins or vitamins like Biotin do not make your hair grow faster. You shouldn’t even consider prenatal vit. unless you’re pregnant! If it seems that prenatal vitamins make pregnant women’s hair grow faster, well it’s not the vitamins it’s the hormones from being pregnant. Biotin makes your hair stronger, and as such, you might be able to grow longer hair because it’s not breaking off.

  36. QUESTION:
    Prenatal Vitamins and Hair Skin Nails Vitamins?
    Would it be bad to take prenatal vitamins AND hair, skin, nails vitamins?
    I’m planning to buy prenatal vitamins because it’s been known to maximize the vitamin deficiencies and i found some for only 4 dollars. I also was thinking about the hair, skin,nails vitamins as well since i’ve read lots of good reviews on them, and they would be cheap (7 dollars)

    My question is, would there be negative side effects to taking more than one kind of vitamin? Also if you believe i shouldn’t take both, which one would you recommend over the other?
    THANKS

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there,

      First of all, since you didn’t mention this anywhere in your question, I am going to make the assumption that you are NOT pregnant, correct? You also didn’t mention your age, but I am going to answer your question based on my gut feeling that you fall within “childbearing age” (18-35 for all intents and purposes, as vitamin needs in women will differ past this age).

      Before I go into detail, I want to STRONGLY advise you NOT to take BOTH supplements concurrently. They contain many of the same ingredients, and “over-dosing”, even on vitamins/minerals/herbal supplements can be very dangerous.

      Now, in your post, you didn’t really mention WHY you were looking into taking this supplements, but you did mention something about vitamin deficiencies. Do you have a confirmed deficiency? Iron deficiency, or Anemia, is a very common cause of hair loss and skin/nail problems in women. A Thyroid-related disorder is another common cause. So if you are having an actual problem with losing your hair or brittle nails, then I would strongly suggest seeing your doctor to rule these things out first.

      With all that being said, here is my recommendation-

      IF you have any sort of iron deficiency, or IF you are planning to begin trying to conceive a baby (whether your first or subsequent), or IF you have recently had a baby and/or are breastfeeding, then by far, go with the Prenatal Vitamins. They offer Iron, which is not offered in most Hair/Skin/Nail supplements. They also contain higher amounts of Folic Acid, which is absolutely essential if you are even thinking about having a baby in the foreseeable future. Prenatal Vitamins also contain higher amounts of D-3 (very reliable when it comes to hair loss/regrowth) and Calcium.

      Now, IF your only concern is aesthetics, and you just want longer or fuller hair, and you are NOT pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant anytime soon, and provided you do NOT have any vitamin deficiencies (specifically iron), then you’d likely be fine to go with the Hair/Skin/Nail supplements. The one main advantage these will have over Prenatal Vitamins is the inclusion of Biotin, which is thought to aid in hair growth. One thing you’ll want to watch out for is the herbal ingredients that many Hair/Skin/Nail supplements tend to contain. Most herbal supplements have not been clinically tested/proven to have any benefit, and some can have unknown effects on the body. Read the label and do your research on those types of ingredients before putting them in your body.

      I hope I’ve helped answer your question. If you have any other questions, I’m happy to try to answer them for you as well :-)

    I have heard that they are fine for anyone to take. I have also heard that it can cause liver and kidney failure because of the higher amount of certain vitamins they have to process. Which one is true? Are prenatal vitamins better than Hair Skin & Nails for healthier, faster growing hair, or vice versa? I would appreciate people that have tried both to answer, not people who have heard things. . . Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      According to the article I glanced at, no, prenatal vitamins are not safe for non-pregnant women to consume. The increased amounts of iron and folate can lead to small cancers and diabetes.

  43. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried hair skin and nails vitamins?
    I’m trying to grow my hair longera and I bought naturesbounty vitamins. Anyone try these vitamins?

    • ANSWER:
      They only help with the condition of new hair but dont provide anything to boost hair growth, the best thing to help youre hair grow is to not hinder it so you always get 1/2 inch of growth every month and you do this buy avoiding hair dye, heat styling and excessive brushing which could pull out some of you’re hair. Also get a trim every month or so because this will reduce split ends and help with the over-all health of youre hair (Dont worry, getting a trim every once and a while wont cancel out the time you took to grow it if you only take a small amount off)

  44. QUESTION:

    SERIOUS INQUIRIES PLEASE

    What are the best hair/skin&nail vitamins?
    Which ones are the best for getting healthier hair, clearer/healthier skin, and stronger nails? I know there are a lot of hair/skin&nail vitamins out there. Which are the best? I’m 17, if that makes any difference.

    • ANSWER:
      You’re right,there are a lot out there to choose from,I’m gonna purchase a hair vitamin in the near future too.I read every review before i decided on a vitamin that i thought suited my needs,here are the websites that i went too:

      http://www.salonweb.com/hair_vitamins.htm

      http://www.folica.com/Vitamins_133_1.html

      One thing to remember when looking for vitamins is that just because its says just hair vitamins or skin vitamins on the bottle doesn’t mean that it can’t benefit both hair,skin,and nails.What really matters is that you find all the right ingredients.Make sure that you do not take any kind of vitamin on an empty stomach,more than likely you will become very nauseous,always take it with a meal.

    aright so i want to start taking them because i want to grow my hair out…I have *knock on wood* fairly good skin, and my nails grow strong and healthy too
    BUT my hair is so blah and dry and it grows so so so slow
    So i have asked around and there has been a lot of people who suggest taking skin hair and nails vitamins

    furthermore, where did u get yours from, and what brand is it…

    if im convinced, i might go buy some tomorow

    also, i take biotin (1000mcg or something), folic acid (just 1 pill), and three fish oil pills a day (amazing for your heart and brain!!)
    if i take these vits (skin..hair..nails…)do u suggest eliminating some of teh vits i take currently, or should i kep taking them

    • ANSWER:
      Okay, to the answer from “BULLSH!T” That’s just straight up mean, just ignore what he/she said… And I think they help me out, I just feel like they make my hair a little healthier, not magical or anything but yeah it helps… And I would say those are all good vitamins, so keep taking them(: hope I helped…

The Best Vitamins For Women Over 40 And What Essential Things You Need To Know About It
For any woman approaching middle age, knowing the appropriate vitamins for women over 40 is very important to enable her to live her life to the fullest. Isn’t it that life begins at 40? The years between 40 and 50 can indeed be the most fun, but this is also the decade when one would face so many challenges. You could be at the peak of your career at this time, and yet you could also be battling stress while trying to juggle work and family life, hormonal imbalances, and the threat of growing old, all of which could affect the way you live your life.

Along with keeping a healthy lifestyle, you need to take the appropriate vitamins for women over 40. At 40, the need to take supplements is very much encouraged, but apparently, you just cannot take anything out of your own choosing or those vitamins that are heavily advertised because these may not be what are recommended for your age. All vitamins are good for the body, but there are those that would be more ideal to a specific age group.

For the forty-ish, for instance, Vitamins C and E in the right doses would have more value. These vitamins are very good antioxidants that, according to studies, may decrease the risks for cervical cancer and ovarian cancer. The B-vitamins would also be highly beneficial to women 40 and up as these, too, have been shown to act on the colon and breast cancer cells. The incidence of these types of cancer is greater in women in their 40s, possibly due to some hormonal changes that happen at this time. These vitamins with antioxidant properties can also make you look younger than you really are. This is because antioxidants work to fight off the free radicals that accelerate the ageing process. Free radicals can invade the body through stress, pollution, and foods, but antioxidants can lessen the impact of these.

The roles of Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin D, and Vitamin K will be greatly appreciated by women in their 40s. Vitamin A targets the immune system and keeps the eyes healthy; Vitamin E is a beauty vitamin that is necessary for the health of the hair and the skin; Vitamin D improves the absorption of calcium in the body, thereby crucial in the maintenance of bone health, while vitamin K is necessary in blood clotting and blood formation.

Aside from these vitamins, women should also have a healthy dose of minerals, especially calcium which is responsible in bone development and bone health, and magnesium, which works well with calcium and relieves some of the discomforts associated with perimenopause. Zinc, too, should be included in the list of essential minerals as this helps in regulating hormonal imbalances.

Maintaining a healthy balance is very important for women in their 40s. That is why the recipe for success of any woman in this age group would include exercise, a healthy diet, and the right dose of vitamins for women over 40.

  5. QUESTION:
    Best Supplement to help with nail and hair problem?
    My nails are a wreck. I know there is something to strengthen them, like a pill or supplement you can take. Anyone know if they work, and which ones to use.

    • ANSWER:
      The other answer is right that Gelatin is a really good one and eating some Jell-O daily can help for a good quantity of it, but it gets old after a while. There are also several natural things that can help with the health of the nails and hair in addition to that, too. Some of the most popular ones are Biotin, Silica (commonly from Horsetail), MSM, L-Cysteine, Collagen, and most antioxidants (like Vitamins A and C among others).

  6. QUESTION:
    What is the best Hair Skin & Nails Vitamin supplement?
    I have dry thin long hair, very short nails, and acne and blackheads and redness in some areas.
    Will Hair skin & nails Vitamins help? If so, can you guys tell me the best yet not too expensive product? I heard there is one that makes your hair shed. I heard it was GNC, so I’m afraid of taking them.

    By the way, I take multivitamins on a daily basis, so will taking the Hair skin & nails supplement affect my health?

    Thanks! ^.^

    • ANSWER:
      The GNC Hair, Skin, Nails did not make my hair shed. I used it for two months.
      Fish oil supplements are good for hair health, and biotin is good for making hair grow faster and nails stronger. As far as skin, I think detoxifying your body and then treating the acne will make it go away.

      If you’re taking a multivitamin, be sure not to take too high a dosage of hair growth supplements.
      This girl can explain the reason: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsofxCjz2I8

      And I did a review on GNC’s products:

  7. QUESTION:
    what is the best supplement for hair, skin and nails?
    I tried Perfectil before. As far as I remember it was fairly good but it is a little expensive for my current budget. I want a general multivitamin/minerals supplement as well as trying to get them from my diet. I have whiteheads on my forehead making it a bit bumpy and tendency to get spots and whitehead on my chin. It’s not that noticeable when I wear make up but it bothers me.
    Any recommendations for supplements aimed at skin health?

    • ANSWER:
      Maybe you should change your approach. Go for seperate suppliments, something that treats skin hair and nails can’t be too effective at them all. I would suggest Zinc for your nails, aswell as Almond oil (both very cheap) For your skin you should try a natural ailment. I use Sage & Comfrey from the Body shop for my whole face. It’s a small tube that you use before moisturiser and dries your small spots and whiteheads up a treat, plus it makes your make-up really smooth with your make-up on.
      I would always try those before suppliments, you can get the same thing from fresh fruit and veg as you can from suppliments.
      Good luck! x

      just any with a high concentration of the actual oil should be fine.

    Which is preferred and WHY?
    Thank you!!

    • ANSWER:
      I take super omega 3 pills, magnesium, calcium, b-12 complex and folic acid pills.
      I havent taken prenatal vitamins, but I find that you would take too much vitamins for your body to digest and use up.
      Biotin is good, but I would take a low dosage. I take b-12 complex which contains biotin, but along with other b vitamins. I have read taking a high dosage continuously leads to VERY bad breaking out of the skin, which takes months to fix from multiple people. Thats a risk Im not willing to take.

      Nioxin shampoo/conditioner and the daily tablets help with alopecia, also with making your hair look and feel thicker. results are slow, like any other treatment, give it 6 months or longer for hair to grow back, but you will instantly notice the thickness of your hair has increased. fish oil, biotin, and vitamin e all improve hair and skin, but these are included in the nioxin tablets. i work at jcpenney salon which carries nioxin, i can send you a 20% off coupon via email, so let me know if you want it.

  17. QUESTION:
    would increasing protein intake as by taking gelatin supplements increase hair and nail strength?
    in an other wise healthy individual? ten points best answer! oh and i need the page where you got the info.

    • ANSWER:
      No.

      That is a popular myth. Gelatin has proteins, but does not contribute a significant amount of amino acids in your diet, even when eaten in large amounts, sufficient to make any difference to your hair and nails. Your own healthy liver will produce enough of the amino acids which are found in gelatin to satisfy all of your needs. The amino acids which you need in your diet and cannot produce in your liver are not found in gelatin in any significant amounts.

  18. QUESTION:
    Best vitamins for aging, skin, hair and nails?
    I am 43 sooo – aging – I have to admit it.
    I currently take a Centrum multi every day and some extra vitamin E.
    What would be the best vitamins and supplements for –
    1) for my overall health at this stage in life
    2) for the condition of my hair, skin and nails – they really need something extra these days
    3) to combat the harsh, very very dry, high altitude Colorado climate.

    • ANSWER:
      Eat a lot of jello. The idea that antioxidant supplements, such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, lipoic acid and N-acetylcysteine, might extend human life stems from the free radical theory of aging.

      If I was a woman and got to menopause, I’d go with the estrogen shots and risk the possibility of cancer.

I am wondering what is the best way to take them. Anybody has more details? Please share. Thanks.

    Question About Supplement to Help Hair Growth???
    Okay, so when I was little I had really pretty long wavy/curly hair…and I chopped it all off to chin length. Now, it is a little past my shoulders and I am about to start taking this supplement called “Hair, Skin & Nails Formula: Dietary Supplement – Premium Nutritional Support for Women” by GNC. It has 2500 mcg of Biotin in it, which is the minimum amount you need to affect hair growth rate/length. HOWEVER, it says that women should take 2 tablets which would equal 5000 mcg of Biotin, but I’m only 13. Is it safe for someone my age to take this amount of Biotin???

    Vitamin/nutrient supplement I can find just at Walmart for hair and nail growth? Or at least thicker longer healthier hair? What’s the best?

      There are certain vitamins that help promote the growth of hair in the body. Changing to a healthier diet is vital not only for hair growth but also for the general well being of your body.

  24. QUESTION:
    Best time of day to take vitamin supplements?? AM or PM??
    So I assume that take a daily vitamin is best for you at breakfast, because that is when everyone takes them.

    However, recently I have started to take supplements for Hair, Skin, & Nails and I noticed it doesn’t state what time of day to take them. The labels just say “daily”with a meal.

    I would prefer to take it after dinner towards bed time, that is when my stomach and body rests.

    Does it really matter?? I’m curious …

    • ANSWER:
      it depends on what type of vitamin are you taking? is it water soluble? or fat soluble? if water soluble, it is best taken in the morning. if fat soluble, it is best taken before bedtime.

      hope this helped.

      and it does matter when to drink it because you want it to take effect properly, aight?

    I want something that’s natural and absorbs the most thoroughly.

    I also like to take other vitamins along with my multi so that I can be supplemented with more of what I need. I was hoping to get the best brand and regimen for that. I usually take supplements for cell regeneration, mood elevating supplements, healthy skin, hair, nails, eyes, memory and cognitive functions IE Omega 3s, cod liver oil, vitamin a, vitamin e, st johns wart, 5htp and etc.

    If you have any suggestions on any additional supplements i’d be happy to hear them!

    Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Heather,

      I think there are a few things that you may want to consider when it comes to taking supplements.

      First, supplements are supposed to supplement your diet, meaning that you should first try to get the nutrients from your diet because due to the complexity of foods, nutrients in a pill just do not work nearly as well. Research has consistency shown this. For example, antioxidants have been proven to be extremely beneficial when they come in the form of fruits and other foods, but when they were in the form of pills, research has shown that they body just can’t make much use of it.

      Second, excess intakes of vitamins and minerals can be just as harmful as inadequate intakes. Therefore, you must make sure that the supplements contain more of what you’re getting less of from your diet, and less or none of what you’re already getting enough of from your diet. Otherwise, you may end up having inadequate intakes for some vitamins and minerals, and excessive intake for others, providing a lose-lose situation, so to say. So when you’re looking for the best multivitamin pill, it is heavily dependent on your diet.

      Third, excess of a single vitamin in a pill may also affect absorption of other vitamins and minerals. Indication of your body not being able to absorb the vitamins/minerals is bright yellow urine. Foods can be heavily fortified or enriched these days, so it is important to read nutrition labels. For example, one serving of many breakfast cereals can contain as much vitamin and minerals as a daily vitamin and mineral pill, and therefore it may not be necessary to still take a vitamin and mineral pill on days when you’ll have a bowl of cereal.

      Additional suggestions that I have on multivitamins is to make sure that the supplement is designed for your sex (your body will be more capable of absorbing the vitamins this way), comes in a opaque or dark/black bottle, and has a printed expiration date.

      I hope this helps!

      -Alvin

    • ANSWER:
      Truth be told, any answer given here will just be personal opinion (I can give you my opinion if you’d like). There are many higher quality companies out there that are readily available and well priced… just make sure the company has a good rating with either the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) or USP (U.S. Pharmacopoeia), as those are the main quality assurance organizations (USP is for the U.S., GMP is for the U.S. and worldwide).

      Also, there are only a few vitamins that are automatically removed from your system if your body can’t use them, specifically Vitamin C and the B Vitamins, which are water-soluble. The other Vitamins (A, D, E, and K) are fat soluble and can build up in your system over time because they are NOT flushed from your system.
      Taking the extra Omega 3 (good for skin and cardiovascular), St. John’s Wort, and/or 5-HTP (both good for mood) would be fine to add to the multi, but I would skip the Cod Liver Oil (because of added Vitamin A and D content) as well as the separate Vitamins A and E because those could be too much of those nutrients and could build up. It’s best to read labels and make sure you’re not getting too much of any given nutrient.
      Biotin and/or Silica would be good for skin, hair, and nails, plus Fish Oil and/or Acetyl L-Carnitine would be good for memory/brain health.
      Feel free to E-mail me if you have other products you’re looking at. Good luck and I hope I helped!

  27. QUESTION:
    Will eating better give better looking skin?
    I have had Seborrheic Dermatitis on my face for a few years now.And I just recently started to treat it with Xolegel.Been on it for a month and has done little.But I recently in the past 2 weeks have been eating Yoplait yogurt twice a day.As well with A yogurt smoothie and watermelon everyday.Also drinking orange juice.And ive been trying to find more stuff with Vitamin E in it since I heard thats the best for your skin.I was wondering over the next few weeks should I suspect any changes to my skin? I drink about 8 water bottles a day and take a skin,hair and nail supplement. If anyone knows of any drinks or food that help with skin please let me know!

    • ANSWER:
      The best food I’ve ever seen for skin is flax seed. You can buy it ground up or grind it in a coffee grinder and then just put 2 tbsp in your cereal in the morning. I’m not sure if it’s the vitamin E or the omega 3 fatty acid or the combination, but it does great things for skin and is supposed to be really good for you all around.

  30. QUESTION:
    Will doing these things help my hair grow (read description)?
    My hair barely ever grows. I cut it short 5 years ago into a bob and cut it regularly, and it’s just past my shoulders. I want it a little bit above my boobs if I can get it that long.

    *Taking Biotin/Calcium hair, skin, and nail growth pills.
    *Not straightening/curling it for 1 – 3 months. (I was just going to braid it at night and let it be natural looking.)
    *Washing (but showering everyday) hair every other day, and using a special hair conditioner twice a week. < It's not regular conditioner, it's by Artec and it's a protein supplement conditioner or something.

  31. QUESTION:
    growthhhhh?
    i wanna grow right now so ive been like meditating to myself that my body’s growing and believing that im growing. but obviously i gotta put in some real effort. so of course imma drink milk cuz i find it pretty good and it not only has nutrients for your bones, but it has hormones too. which milk has the most/best hormones? ive been drinking fat free organic Stremick’s milk. love ittt.. hahaha ive been taking One a Day’s vitamin supplements too along w. these supplements for hair/nails/skin and all natural digesting regulating pills. i think just eating healthy doesnt give enough nutrients. i believe in vitamins. but can it be bad to get too much of ur daily need of vitamins? i was thinking of taking supplements for my growth too. but what do i take for that? vitamin D? ive been thinking about taking in hormones too. like natural good ones. like in milk. haha where can i find those? i heard if u take hormones itll enhance ur appearance :]
    eh. i just wanna get healthier. but it benefits in appearance too obviously. i wanna grow as much as i can. like 5’5 to 5’6. im5’3 right now

    • ANSWER:
      Keep drinking the milk. It really does a body good.

      You can get too much of a good thing, so don’t take too many vitamin and mineral supplements. A “One-a-day” type multi is fine, though I personally prefer supplements that have at least two tablets or pills per serving, and I’ll take one morning and another at night to maintain blood levels of the nutrients.

      As to hormone supplements, I strongly recommend against anyone managing this on their own. There are things that doctors can do for people to help them grow, but they usually only do them when it’s actually necessary for the person’s health.

      You may also just want to accept your height. I was the shortest and smallest person in my high school until my Senior year, when a 9th grade girl (I’m a guy) finally was smaller than me. Of course, this is one of the main reasons as to why I eventually became a professional bodybuilder, but I’ll never be considered a tall person… Actually, I’m a little below average, which as it turns out, is great for a bodybuilder!

      So, maybe your lack of height (assuming that you’re not already 6’6″ and just want to be taller) has something that you can use to make it a positive?

  32. QUESTION:
    Is it safe to take Hair skin and nails vitamins?
    I am not one to take supplements ever and i know they are not best. I do not need more vitamins, but just want help growing my hair longer because it always stops at a certain length. Rather than getting extensions is this safe and a good idea to take some for a while then stop when i see some changes? I am 18 female healthy small (87 lbs)….. I dont want to be at risk because i want longer hair!!!!! help!? or is there a better or another way i should go about this instead of the pills?

    • ANSWER:
      You can try Biotin.
      Tbh, the chances of risk are not that high.
      Biotin is basically vitamin B. Helps your hair and nails.
      It won’t make it grow faster, it will just make your hair grow at its optimal rate
      (the highest it can).
      The hair grows about 1/2 inch monthly, so you’ll be getting just about that
      with Biotin or any other pill.
      If you do not prefer using it, then you can try nourishing oils rich in
      amino acids in order to restore natural proteins. Also rich in vitamins A,D and E.
      I use Hydroveil Hair Growth Oil. (It’s basically for all hair types. I’ve tried it, I have normal straight hair. But I don’t get all my nutrients, so I keeo my hair nourished with this oil)
      It provides the hair with the nutrients it needs to grow.
      Simple as that, no nutrients=hair doesn’t grow well.

  33. QUESTION:
    Missed Period from vitimines? Help?
    I’ve been taking biotin, a vitamin B supplement to help hair and nails. Well, my period is a week late, and i assumed it was just not regular yet because this would be my third period, even though my last two started on the same day and ended about a week later.
    I thought it was nothing, until my best friend told me that ever since she started taking the biotin about a week after i started, her period is a week late too. Hers should be regular because shes had it for about two years now.
    I stopped taking the biotin, discharges are getting a bit heavier, but still no period. What should i do? I told my mom, and im going to the doctor’s in two days for shots and i hurt me knee, should i bring it up? What do you guys think?
    All answers are appreciated <3
    xoxo

    • ANSWER:
      Biotin has nothing to do with your period, it is a vitamin, not a hormone. And it’s a water soluble vitamin so you only absorb small amounts at a time and then urinate out the rest a few hours later. Even if you take a “high dose” that’s not how vitamins work, you can only absorb a little bit at a time of water soluble vitamins.

  34. QUESTION:

  35. QUESTION:
    I’m always depressed about my appearance… it’s time to make a change. Can you help me out?
    I’ve always been very depressed about my appearance. My weight, at 180lbs 5′ 7″, I am just under “obese”. My weight, personality, and outlook on life has only worsened as my self-image dropped more and more. I’ve always hated the look of my face, my hair, my skin, my legs, my butt… you name it. But I’m done feeling depressed. I’m done just existing in this world. I’ve wasted two decades too many living like this. I finally have the support I need from my boyfriend and, most importantly, from myself. However, I need some tips. I’m on a raw veg diet, with a supplement of fatty fishes and soy. I’ve got the dieting part down. If you have any tips feel free to add some. I’m enrolling myself in a local fitness club… but I have NO idea how to workout. I’m too self-conscience to workout in the neighborhood, but I feel surprisingly motivated with people working out around me. I found this to be the best option. What should I do at the gym? Run, walk, lift weights, ANYTHING? I have 5 and 10lb weights at home. I’ve been doing some “Arnold” presses, bicep curls, and few others I’m not sure of the name. What can I do with these? I’m too weak to lift myself… push-ups and sit-ups are not an option at this point. What can I do as far as working out at home and at the gym? Also, I’d like some beauty tips. What can I do as far as NATURAL looking makeup goes? Nails? (I have a terrible nail biting habit, but I hate the feel of fake nails) Skin? Hair? Anything would be appreciated. I’ve lived my whole life wearing clothes that do not make me look good at all… because I’ve never cared. But I do like looking feminine and I’d like to make that transition. My teeth are yellow… I brush twice daily thoroughly, but my teeth just don’t turn white. I used to smoke, but I’ve stopped. Is this discoloration irreversible? Please, help me with any tips you may have. I need to feel better about myself and this is a big step towards it. Thanks for reading this looong post and for any tips you provide. I truly appreciate it.

    - I am ready to live!

    • ANSWER:
      I’m a smoker and my teeth GLEAM! Seriously, but that’s because I got them professionally whitened for only 100 dollars. Getting them done at the dentist is seriously cheaper than people think. Plus if you save up all your entertainment money for the month, then you really can afford a lot more than you think! Oh and the drug-store whitening kits are NOT worth it. You’d have to buy like 3 kits and use them everyday to see a difference.

      As for nails, a high-quality polish brand like OPI is a must. When I paint my nails they feel way to pretty to bite them. A bottle of OPI polish is like 8 bucks and lasts forever. Get a sexy color like red- red as in “STOP BEFORE YOU CHEW ON THESE!”

      Hair- grow it LONG. If it’s already long, but sort of thin, then human-hair clip-in extensions are gorgeous. You’ll look like Kim Kardashian with all that thick, long, flowy hair. It adds so much volume that it’s like an instant makeover- and hair can make all the difference. They run from 100-200 dollars on the internet. Don’t bother dying or bleaching or highlighting your hair, it’s an endless money-pit and really damaging. My hair is STILL recovering from my 8 years spent being a blonde. If you’re not that experienced with hair styling, then a really easy look is just simply blow-drying it straight and wearing it down.

      Once you lose weight, you’ll find that you can put on anything in the clothing store and it’ll look amazing. But for now, stick with dark-wash jeans and empire-waist tops. They’re flattering on any figure.

      For makeup- all you really need is a HIGH-QUALITY foundation and a mascara. Go for Mac foundation, yes, it is expensive, but that’s the only way to get an airbrushed-look. And don’t forget that Youtube has literally thousands of video makeup tutorials.

      I’m losing weight (18 pounds lost so far) and I don’t exercise at the gym for the kind of same reasons as you, I don’t feel thin enough to be at the gym. It’s really embarrassing to have these stupid college meat-heads standing around checking at girls while they’re working out. And for some reason only thin people go to the gym. I work out at home and I just do things like yoga and pilates. If you have On-Demand/Comcast/Xfinity then there’s a workout section where you can play videos to work out along with.

  36. QUESTION:
    Fish oil just for heart?
    I have a few friends who take fish oil and they say it’s really good for you. I’ve read that’s it’s good for your cholesterol and heart, but I thought it was good for your hair/nails/skin.

    If I’m wrong what vitamin supplements could I take for them? I do need vitamins for my heart, because it’s really funky so I’m gonna continue with the fish oil.

    What brands do you think work best? I take Centrum A to Zinc and bought Spring Valley Fish Oil pills.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I do know all about “having a healthy balanced diet” and that no pills can take place of that, so please don’t suggest that…
    By the way, I hate fish. I dont know why just don’t like it, besides walleye and northern bass.

    • ANSWER:
      Most of the recent searches regarding fish oil benefit to the heart diseases has proved the importance of omega 3 fatty acids in protection against the heart diseases. The recent study of American Dietetic Association revealed the factor that these acids are very effective to reduce the fatty deposits in arteries.

      The consumption of fish oil reduces the chances of all forms of cancer including breast, colon and prostate. The fatty acids found in the fish oil is quite helpful to stop the development of cancerous mass from quite a healthy cell

      The fish oil has very significance in preventing the pregnancy complication like premature delivery and low birth weight. The consumption of fish oil during pregnancy reduce allergy in the newborns, help in development of brain and reduce risk of post partum depression. It is better to take fish oil during the period of pregnancy.

      The fish oil is very effective for the eyesight. It not only improves the eyesight but also decrease the dryness in the eyes. The fish oil helps to stop the eyesight decline with the increasing age.

      The fish oil is very effective to prevent all types of depression including the schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, ADHD and anger caused depression. It is also helpful in treatment of the Huntington’s disease.

      The fish oil is found effective in treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, systemic lupus and other inflammatory conditions.

      The recent scientific studies recognized the role of fish oil in weight regulation, it reduces craving caused by the fatty foods.

      These are the most significant fish oil benefits. Fish oil not only reduces the risk of a number of incurable diseases but is also very helpful nutritional supplement. Eating fish is the basic way for the body to get enough fatty acids but if you want to get more, than try to get fish oil benefits directly from the fish oil that is extracted from the cold water fishes as its benefits are bigger and it is easer to digest. the only set back is that at times you can burp up a fishy odor or taste, peppermint will counter act this. It’s totally worth all the benefits of this wonderful natural remedy for your health
      take care

    Do I take too Many Supplements???
    I am a 23 year old female. I know it’s best to get nutrients from real food, but as a full time employee and college student I simply don’t have enough time and money for it.

    I take a lot of supplements. Is this too much and unnecessary, or is there someting else you’d recommend?

    Zinc
    Vitamin C
    St. John’s Wort

    • ANSWER:
      You know how people say that we’ve become addicted to pharmaceuticals? That we take handfulls of pills to pad the pockets of Big Pharma to treat illnesses that don’t exist?

      Are you seeing what I’m getting at?

      You could get by with a single multi-vitamin. One. That’s IF you barely eat. Overdosing on vitamins is dangerous. Taking a lot of vitamins is linked to heart disease. No fooling. Check pubmed. You just don’t need any of that stuff, although the big companies that sell them to you want you think you do. All of those supplements you take are also likely just the very Big Pharma people seem to hate these days. They know where the money is, and they’re selling you supplements.

I looked it up and realized thats not good. But how can I get a multivitamin that gives me everything I need without going over 100%? Is it really that bad to go over? I started taking vitamins cuz I was having weak nails and a lot of hair loss, and I was healing very slowly. I went to the doctor and they just said I was fine and to just eat well and drink water.

    Do i have to give my dog heart worm prevention if it has no heartworms?

    • ANSWER:
      1. Yes they need shots, but I am unsure what they are called. Your vet will tell you everything you need to know and give you a copy of their shot record.
      2. Blue Buffalo is an excellent food to give your shih tzu. We use it for our 2 shih tzus.
      3. You do not have to give them a vitamin, all of their nutrients are in the Blue Buffalo dog food.
      4. I bought my nail clippers and files from Petsmart. I did not buy grooming shears because we take them every 6-8 weeks to get groomed, but I am sure you can get them at any groomers or even on Amazon.com.
      5. Depending on how short you keep their hair, we keep our shih tzus pretty short, so I was them every 2 weeks. You do not wont to give them too many baths though, their skin is prone to allergies. Watch what you use on them, we use Earthbath shampoo. Just make sure it does not have alot of perfumes etc. because it will irritate their skin. Good luck with your new puppy!!


How To Grow Long Hair Fast

How to grow natural long hair
Everyone wants natural long hair but few know how to do it! The first trick to get long natural hair is to keep it natural! I know this sounds silly but it is the truth!

Hair loss and hair that refuses to grow is usually the result of the use of commercial hair products!

Take one look at the back of your shampoo or conditioner and ask yourself if you would eat this?

I bet you would say no! So why would you put it on your scalp!? Your skin and scalp will soak up chemicals rather quickly leading to stunted hair growth, hair loss, itchy scalp, bad hair days etc

So if you want natural long hair is that is longer than shoulder length, you need to stop using these chemical products.

If you want to wash your hair use a cup of baking soda mixed with a teaspoon of apple cider diluted in half a cup of water and then mix into a paste, apply on your hair and scrub your hair

This simple scrub will also provide increased blood flow to the scalp and allow natural long hair growth.

Next natural long hair tip is to wash your hair often with the recipe I just gave you. You can wash your hair often so long as it is not with commercial shampoos, if you wish to use commercial shampoos make sure you wash your hair less often and apply most of the shampoo on the hair and not your scalp- this keeps most of the chemicals away from the scalp.

If you are in a hurry and want a natural long hair look but cant wait for it to grow, you might want to look into natural long hair extensions. Trim your natural hair every 3 to 4 weeks. This helps you grow your natural hair long and fast, trimming your hair gets rid of the split ends and may send air and moisture to your scalp which makes your hair grow longer faster.

Avoid using hair color if you want to get natural long hair, avoid dying your hair for a while, this is because hair dye is not natural and will give your long hair split ends, and the ammonia which is found in most hair dye’s is bad for your hair and health

Scalp moisture is crucial and you need a clean, healthy scalp for that I recommend you use Nara hair oil, it contains the finest and [purest oils and herbs that will not only clean your hair, they will also nourish your scalp and provide ample blood flow to your hair roots, allowing them to grow faster

Hope these simple tips help you grow your natural hair longer! Natural hair growth is always best for youthful healthier looking hair.

    How to make your hair grow long fast!?
    I am an african american teenager and I have been trying to grow my hair for years..I have tried just about anything…braids, moisturizers, vitamins and they all have failed. I am desperate to do just about anything to grow long hair fast!

    • ANSWER:
      Cut it. Because it helps split ends, and split ends choke your hair. I would cut it every six weeks and condition it lots, i would try “Head and shoulders”.Try to stop curling your hair because it burns the ends of your hair.And brush your hair lots also.

  3. QUESTION:
    How to grow long health hair fast?
    I’m 16 and want long hair, It takes my hair a while to grow. Is there anything out on the market or at home I could use to help my hair grow faster?

    • ANSWER:
      just try simple things.
      first, get it trimmed to get rid of all split ends.

      second, use a shampoo and conditioner that are designed to keep hair healthy as well as clean.

      third, try to avoid heat styling if at all possible.

      and lastly, since your hair tends to grow most at night, put your hair in a tight ponytail before bed. and i mean TIGHT, as tight as you can stand it. that will pull on the roots and cause the hair to grow almost twice as fast as it would have in the first place

    how to grow long hair, fast, healthy, and without adding more volume, or damage, and will take the poof out?
    Is there any way to get my hair to grow long, fast, healthy, without adding more volume, or more damage, and will actually take the poof out of my hair?

    • ANSWER:
      There is no 100% way to grow your hair faster, but I can help with everything else! Also, here are some ways to help your hair growth, and make sure it grows as fast as possible.

      - Only wash your hair with shampoo 1-3 times a week. When you wash your hair with shampoo, you’re stripping the natural oils out of your hair, and natural oils are what you need for your hair to grow and become silky and smooth.
      - After you have a shower everyday, while your hair is still wet, put a silk serum or leave-in conditioner. I use VO5 Silk Serum.
      - Don’t use heat on your hair. That means sun (wear a hat outdoors), hot water (try making it cooler in the shower), hair straighteners, curling irons and blow dryers. If you do straighten your hair, only straighten it 1-2 times a week, and use a heat protection spray on your dry hair before straightening.

      Good luck! :)

    How to grow long healthy hair fast?
    what are some tips that will help me grow long hair fast? my hair is about 2 inches past my shoulder and i want to grow about 6-8 inches longer about how long would this take?

    • ANSWER:
      The best way to get your hair to grow is to focus on your diet. Protein and healthy fats are very important. You can also improve your hair growth with vitamins like biotin, pantothenic acid, Inositol, and MSM. My sister uses prenatal vitamins and biotin for her hair, but I use Caribbean Hair Grow because my hair doesnt grow as fast as hers, and I needed something stronger to get mine to grow. Talk to your doctor before you take any supplements.

      Also, check out the article link below for more info about making your hair grow healthier. Good luck!

    How to grow long hair fast?
    My hair is currently about 4 inches below my shoulders and I would like it to be at a middle-rib length by graduation at the end of May. Any tips that will make it grow faster than usual?

    • ANSWER:
      you could use a shampoo from walmart that specializes in hair growth or hair repair (remember, good hair health is essential to growing it out. you could also buy a hair growth treatment, which you can also get at walmart. or you can get it at your local beauty supply store.
      also try to wear your hair in a tight ponytail when your just lounging around your house. this tuggs on your hair follicles and stimulates growth.
      but if your very anxious, there’s nothing wrong with getting extensions.

    How do you grow your hair long fast?
    i want my hair to grow longer by august, how can it grow faster? i have blonde hair that is straight

    • ANSWER:
      Hair won’t grow any faster than it will grow. To keep it healthly and help it grow – don’t cut it, get a 1/4″ trim every 6 weeks – this will keep the ends from breaking.

      To be honest, it probably won’t grow that much by August – so just get extensions

Right now, my hair is about 5-8 inches and I would like to grow it longer. I also want to part it down the middle, and my hair is currently not parted. I’m 13 and Asian, by the way. Is there a way to grow my hair to at least shoulder length? If yes, please tell how! Thanks!

      um if you have split ends which you probably don’t as a guy – trim them monthly as they make hair break off and not grow.

      and take a vitamin suppliment for hair or multivitamin at least

      and drink a lot of water and eat healthy

      use a good conditioner – pantene is pretty good

      and yah possibly the extensions if the above is not fast enough…

    how to grow long hair fast?
    I recently had a hair cut and sort of hate it, i look better with longer hair. I want to grow hair lenghthier faster? Please help me with tips… Cheers

    • ANSWER:
      My hair grows pretty fast. I’ve been trimming my ends every 4 months according to a lunar phase method. Depending on what you’d like your hair to do, say… beautify, lengthen, thicker, or root work. Make an appointment at your salon to trim you ends on that specific day. I’ve been doing this for about 5 years now and has definitley worked for me. You can find this Lunar Phase Chart at: morroccomethod.com. Look for the “lunar chart and hair care” link.

      According to this chart, your next trimming day should be next June 2nd, 3rd, or 4th.

    im wanting to grow my hair long but it takes so long to grow.. does anyone know how to make your hair grow long fast?

    • ANSWER:
      i SWEAR by this, after taking a shower massage your scalp. when i had longer nails, i would use them to somewhat “scratch” my hair. my hair grows a lot faster now and its about an inch or 2 from my belly button, and i thought i had hair that grew slow haha.they also sell hair massagers at the store and they are pretty cheap, i cant describe the shape, but i will try to get a picture to show you. also you could take multivitamins like biotin which helps hair and nails grow faster and stronger and helps your skin. also i read if you have dandruff it stunts hair growth so i would take care of that. also if you get stressed easily, dont! it makes hair grow slower. also try not to use heat on your hair, and eat more protein(eggs,meat,etc)

    i have wanted long hair for a really long time but my hair grows sooo slow!! does anyone know some type of home remedy or anything to speed up the growth of my hair so i can grow it long? thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Well hair grow half an inch each month on its own. But what I would suggest it try using Mane N’ Tail Horse Shampoo and Conditioner. I use it all the timeand it does aid in growing your hair faster. I’d say massage it into your scalp so it can get to your roots well this increases the blood flow helping it grow faster. When shampooing and conditioning you should use cold or luke warm water on your hair so it won’t damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.You can find it at walmart in the pet section.
      You should drink plenty of water to help condition your hair.
      Eating Coconut oil also has benifits its not only good for adding nutrients to the hair, but its also good for weight loss and has many more benifits.
      And don’t forget about exercising, as much as I hate it, it actually helps by increasing the blood flow and stimulating the hair to grow faster.

    How can I make my hair grow long fast ?
    My hair is about an inch longer than shoulder length and I would like to grow it out to at least 3 or 4 inches longer than it is now. I straighten my hair everyday and my hair is pretty dead. I have dead ends and split ends but whenever I trim my hair it is just short again then by the time it gets ‘long’ i have to cut it to get rid of the dead ends. I don’t know how to make it grow long fast. Please help!
    Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      Wow, first off to start this process, you need to get your hair trimmed to get the split ends off otherwise it will continue to get worse and your hair will never grow bc it will just keep breaking off. You should always have regular trims for that reason, especially if you are trying to grow it out. Secondly, stop flat ironing your hair so much. Any kind of heat you use does some damage. But if you must flat iron, do not do it everyday, do not turn the heat all the way up, and always, always you a heat protector. Your hair will not grow if you don’t keep it healthy.
      After all of that, keep up on your trims by asking your stylist for a “dusting” off your ends. it will not take off any length. You can also start taking a vitamin. GNC sells vitamins made specifically for hair, skin and nails. If you can get that, a multivitamin will work, just not as well.
      And you need patience. If this is want you want to do, get and keep your hair healthy. and just be patient, don’t give up and cut it off.
      Good luck

  35. QUESTION:
    How to make my hair grow long fast?
    My hair is a little bit shorter than my shoulders. And i want to grow it past my shoulders by the end of school year………. can anybody tell me how to make it grow fast and healthy? thanks(:

    • ANSWER:
      well first of all if you have layers you need to get all your hair as close to the same length as possible. then you should trim your hair about a half inch every three months. this will keep it healthy and no dead ends therefor your hair will grow faster! also dont wash your hair every day. this may sound gross but the less you wash your hair, the faster it grows. you can actually train your hair to not have to wash it that often. wash it every other day for a while and then make it every three days. your hair will eventually get to where it doesnt get dirty/oily for a couple days. whering your hair up in a tight pony tail also causes your hair to grow quicker because its pulling at it from the roots. try not to use too much heat on your hair or anything that will damage it. if you do then use heat protectant spray on it.

      Something else you can try [you may not want to do this] but if youre up for it, like i said about not washing your hair as often, ive actually read up about something that said if you go three weeks without washing your hair at all then you wont even need to wash it any more. we always rip the natural oils from our hair that we need from washing it. so if you dont wash it for three weeks your hair will be even more healthy and look better than it did before and it will grow 10 times faster… but like i said you may not want to do this. if not than just do all the other stuff i said and you will have long beautiful hair in no time! good luck! :)

  36. QUESTION:
    How do you grow long hair fast!?
    I used to have long curly locks but now i made a bad mistake and cut it too short i cant wait several months to have it grow back what do i do!?

    • ANSWER:
      I know how that feels, It sucks when your hair gets shorter doesn’t it. :/

      Here are some tips that make it grow longer.

      . Do not shower with hot water on your hair. Make sure hot water doesn’t touch your hair when you are showering then put it as cold as you can when you are rinsing your hair. Hair is made up of dead particles and are very sensitive to heat.

      Do not iron or blow dry your hair and DO NOT sleep with it wet. Just try to naturally air dry it or blow dry it on cool air if you are in a rush.

      Do not dye it or put it up tightly.

      Take a multi vitiman and make sure you eat healthy.

      Relax. Stress can also cause your hair to fall out.

      IMPORTANT: Scrub your scalp with your fingers in the shower because hair often gets trapped under dead skin sitting on the top. (I know it sounds gross)

      Apperently if you cut it it will grow faster.

      P.S. IF you are a guy your hair will grow faster. I don’t know why this works

      Summer 2012? I think your hair will be plenty long by then haha. But I wouldn’t trim it at all. Maybe once or twice to keep it nice, but otherwise trimming it seems counter-productive. No?

  41. QUESTION:
    How to get your hair to grow long fast?
    Last school year i chopped my hair off and it was very long before i cut it all off. But i was just wondering is there any ways i can make it grow fast?

    • ANSWER:
      Not very long, there’s no magic power, no hair products that can speed things up, just the healthy foods you eat and your good genes and A LOT OF PATIENCE.

      It may grow very slowly or none at all if you’ve straightened your hair in the past.

      You get all your vitamins & minerals & proteins FREE from the good foods you eat from Mother Nature, not made by man, and no shampoo can help grow hair, not even those made for horses. Horses don’t abuse their hair, using heating tools, and they eat better than people, but it won’t add more hair & make their hair longer faster.Shampoo intended for animals may contain insecticides or other medications for treatment of skin conditions or parasite infestations such as fleas or mange. These must never be used on humans.
      Prenatal vitamins don’t make your hair grow. Pregnant women have to start taking care of their bodies when they’re pregnant, meaning stop smoking, drinking, dyeing or perming their hair SO OF COURSE their hair start growing again. But it has nothing to do with their hair, it has something to do to help the development of their unborn child.

      Foods for Healthy Hair – the website had moved, type it in.

      http://health.yahoo.com/experts/healthie…

      Fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains all supply B-complex vitamins, like biotin, folic acid and vitamin B12, as well as vitamin A, copper and zinc, which are all necessary for remedying dry, brittle hair and nourishing a healthy scalp. Some prime examples of foods that contain these nutrients for healthy hair include:
      ·                     Folic Acid – asparagus, beets, broccoli, avocados, Brussels sprouts, beans, chickpeas, soybeans, lentils, oranges, fresh peas, turkey and spinach.
      ·                     Biotin – cauliflower, liver, salmon, carrots, bananas, cereals, yeast, and soy flour. Keep in mind that biotin content is reduced when food is cooked or preserved.
      ·                     Vitamin B12 – foods rich in vitamin B12 include animal protein (such as beef, lamb, and veal), clams and oysters, liver, fish, milk, and egg yolks.
      •Vitamin A – butter, egg yolks, fish, fortified milk, organ meats (such as liver), and dark green, orange, red, and yellow fruits and vegetables, which all contain beta-carotene.
      •Copper – oysters and other shellfish, whole grains, beans, nuts, potatoes, and organ meats are good sources of copper. Dark leafy greens, dried fruits such as prunes, cocoa, black pepper, and yeast are also sources of copper in the diet.
      •Zinc – beef, eggs, liver, pork, poultry, and oysters. Also is also abundant in other high-protein foods, like cheese, legumes and nuts.
      If having a lush, beautiful mane of healthy hair is important to you, don’t just look to hot oil treatments and shine emollients. Eat these foods for healthy hair and say “bye-bye” to bad hair days.

      Sources:
      I know hair. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy hair down to my knees. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing in the 80′s & 90′s. I’ve known people in their 30′s whose hair stopped growing from ironing their hair in the 70′s.

    • ANSWER:
      For Hair & Nails:

      Biotin is what you need.
      You can get biotin in foods as well as in vitamin supplements.
      After all, it’s not what you put ON your nails/body, it’s what you put IN your body.
      Biotin also works with hair growth :-)

      Make sure you drink plenty of water every day.

      Good Luck.

  45. QUESTION:
    Any Ideas On How I Can Grow My Hair Long & Fast?
    i want my hair to grow longer and faster but i dont know what to do.
    any shampoos, conditioners, and vitamins etc on what i could use?
    or anything really

    • ANSWER:
      As someone with long hair, I can tell you that it’s not easy growing your hair out. It takes a lot of work and maintenance to keep my long hair looking healthy and beautiful. For starters, I would NOT recommend Mane ‘n Tail shampoo and conditioner. I just did an internet search to look at the ingredients and it is filled with carcinogenic chemicals like Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Methylparaben, Propylparaben and DMDM Hydantoin (a formaldehyde releasing preservative!). The trick to having healthy hair in general is to stay away from harsh chemicals and detergents that will strip the hair. I know that sounds like a challenge in this day in age, but there are products out there that are close to being 100% natural. You just have to look for them. Burt’s Bee is a pretty good one. But I personally prefer using shampoo bars as they don’t contain the preservatives that are needed with liquid shampoos. Here are a few companies that sell them:

      http://www.mi-spa.com/Hair-c-2.html

      http://bluehousesoaps.com/catalog.php?category=20

      http://www.chagrinvalleysoapandcraft.com/shambar.htm

      http://www.alpinenaturals.com/shampoobars.html

      http://www.herbariasoap.com/soaps/jojoba-shampoo-bar.asp

      Look only for “100% natural, chemical free” products. And stay away from the LUSH line of shampoo bars. Even though they tout that they are a natural company, their shampoo bars actually contain many chemicals! When asked why they use them, they respond by trying to tell you that the chemicals are not really that bad for you.

      Keep in mind, after using an all natural shampoo bar, you probably won’t need to use a conditioner, but if you do, you can just use a little coconut oil on the ends of your wet hair and leave it in for the rest of the day. It’s easy to use too much coconut oil so be careful.

      Another rule of thumb: don’t blow dry or flat iron. And don’t brush your hair when it’s wet as this can cause a lot of breakage to the hair. Instead use a wide tooth comb when it’s wet and brush it when dry.

      But perhaps the most important thing is to stay away from commercial hair dyes. I am a natural redhead and I sometimes use 100% herbal Henna to enhance and enrich my red hair color. If you’re a redhead, I recommend that for you too – it gives the hair the most beautiful red color that you could NEVER get from using a box of Clairol. If you have dark hair, you can mix henna and indigo together to get a really rich shade of brunette. If you’re a blonde, use Cassia obovata for a lovely golden color.

      Also, get your hair trimmed regularly to remove the split ends. And after you try some of these things for awhile, you will notice a big difference in the health of your hair.

  46. QUESTION:
    How can I grow my hair long and FAST?!?
    I recently cut my hair about 2 inches and now I want it LONG for summer. What can I do to help my hair grow fast? Also, I typically air dry my hair and then straighten it almost daily. YIKES! I know..

    HELP!

    • ANSWER:
      Sweetie, you shouldnt straighten your hair everyday. It will make it lose its natural oils and dry it out, you’ll also fry it..I did that

      OKay so, I understand that you want your hair to grow super fast. Everyday, twice a day, I want you to take a multivitamin (2 total) that contains a lot of biotin. Biotin is a miracle grower! It makes your hair and nails grow super fast!
      1/4 and inch per week, 1 inch per month.
      It works super fast and youll notice changes

      Other things you can do is stop straightening your hair..only do it once in a while like maybe for special occasions. As for everyday, experiment with your hair, try different styles that dont involve straightening. Another thing is to use good shampoo and conditioner.
      Mane and Tail is a great shampoo and conditioner. It will also help with the hair growth. It contains really good minerals.

      Good luck sweets!
