Vitamins To Make Hair Grow

What Vitamins Should I Take To Improve My Hair, Skin And Nails?
The biggest news recently about beauty, especially hair, skin, and nail health, revolves around the ability of vitamins and minerals to help skin be healthy and young looking. Nutrients, vitamins, and minerals can promote hair growth, healthier looking hair, and help strengthen nails so they don’t chip and break. This means not just nutrients found in lotions and creams that go on the skin, but those that are found naturally in the food we eat, and in vitamin and mineral supplements that can be taken to help improve hair, skin, and nails from the inside out.

Vitamin and mineral supplements added to a healthy diet can make such a difference that you don’t need to spend a lot of money on a full regimen of skincare products. Fortunately, most of the same things that are good for your skin will also work to give you healthy hair and nails; that makes taking a supplement so much simpler!

Vitamins C and E
As far as your skin goes, both vitamin C and E are very important in stopping the negative effects of too much exposure to the sun, such as wrinkles and ageing. Vitamin E has been shown to decrease sun damage and wrinkles and smooth out the texture of skin. Long term use of both of these vitamins can reduce the chances of getting sunburnt and vitamin C can help with collagen formation.

For skin, hair, and nails, both vitamin C and E act as antioxidants. Vitamin E and C improve blood circulation (and nutrient delivery) to the scalp, resulting in healthier hair. C and E taken as a supplement and in a topical lotion can reverse the damage caused by free radicals, and help replace collagen and elastin.
Vitamin C also promotes healthy nails. Hangnails can be caused by a deficiency in Vitamin C. You can get vitamin C from leafy green vegetables, citrus (such as a lime, grapefruit and oranges), and cherries. A powder form of supplement is probably the easiest way to digest synthesised vitamin C. Just mix it in with juice.

Vitamin A
If the levels of vitamin A in your body are too low, you may experience things like dry and flaky skin as well as dry scalp. Vitamin A is important for maintaining healthy skin and repairing damaged skin. There are also vitamin A lotions that can significantly reduce wrinkles, and even help control acne.

Taking a vitamin A supplement (or beta carotene) helps the scalp produce the oils it needs to avoid flakiness and dryness. Pregnant women need to seek advice before taking vitamin A and everyone needs to be careful not to over do it. Too much can be toxic.

Vitamin K
In our bodies, the job of vitamin K is to help with blood clotting. For the skin it works to reduce dark circles under the eyes as well as fade bruising, especially when used as a topical cream. Vitamin K is made by bacteria in the gut so keeping your insides healthy helps with the production of vitamin K. A routine to support the intestines and stomach may be one way to keep your good tummy bugs happy and healthy and busy producing vitamin K.

Biotin (Vitamin B7)
One of the B vitamins, biotin, may one of the most important supplements you can take for you skin, hair and nails. Biotin (B7) is a nutrient contained the cells of our hair, nails, and skin. When you don’t have enough biotin, itchy skin and scalp result as well as hair loss. Try a multi-B supplement that contains biotin and as well as Niacin, B5, B6, and B12, all of which are important for healthy skin, hair and nails.

Minerals for Hair, Skin, and Nails
Like vitamins C and E, the minerals copper, selenium and zinc, can help develop elastin to make skin tighter and smoother. They also have other benefits and are usually included in good multi-vitamin supplements specifically for hair and nails.

Check with Your Doctor
Before you begin taking anything new, it’s always a good idea to check with your doctor to make sure that they won’t have any negative reactions with any medications you may be taking. The doctor can also advise you on safe dosages to take each day. Be sure to read the label and only take the recommended daily dose.

As complementary therapies are not tested in the same way as pharmaceutical drugs they have varying levels of effectiveness, so try a few different brands till you find a product that works well for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Does Prenatal Vitamins make your hair grow faster or is it better to take other vitamins with Biotin in it?
    I colored my hair a while back and it broke off a little so i was wondering if Prenatal vitamins make hair grow faster. Im already eating healthy and taking multivitamins but i really need my hair to grow back past my shoulders because i do NOT like extensions. Help me out please!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Vitamins, exercise, water, eating right…are all the things that help you obtain healthy hair, but how you take care of it matters as well. Make sure you deep condition/hot oil treat your hair, find the right shampoo that works for your hair texture, get your hair trimmed every 6 – 8 weeks, and lay off heat and chemicals if possible. Your hair needs lots of tender love and care. It will grow, however, just remember the average hair growth is around a 1/2 inch give or take a a little depending on the person.

      I’m not a fan of extensions (doesn’t sound like you are either), however, if you decide to go that route…make sure they sew or braid the tracks in. NO GLUE!!!!!

  2. QUESTION:
    What vitamins should I take to make my hair grow faster?
    I’ve heard that prenatal vitamins make hair grow much faster, but is that safe if you’re not pregnant/planning to be? Should I take specific vitamins or just a daily multivitamin? Please help; I just got a horrible haircut. :(

    • ANSWER:
      biotin and prenatal pills work the best.

  3. QUESTION:
    is it true that Pre Natal vitamins will make your hair grow longer faster?
    I heard a rumor that the DHA in Pre-Natal vitamins makes hair grow faster. I really want long gorgeous hair asap, what can I do to stimulate growth? I take good care of it and get all my split ends trimmed, so please don’t give me that as advice.

    • ANSWER:
      You can stimulate the growth, by massaging your hair when you shampoo.
      If you want to keep your hair LONGER, you’re cutting all the good hair as well, if you go to the salon to have them done. Spend 5-10 mins. on a sunny day so you can spot your split ends, sometimes they are in the middle of a strand. Using a 2″ scissors, cut each strand by strand, section by section, before you know it you will only have 1% split ends. Then 2x a year get them cut at a salon. I cut mine 1″ a month, 4″ 2x a year. Since 2003, they’re now down to my knees.

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

      You get the strength & all your vitamins & minerals & proteins FREE from the good foods you eat from Mother Nature, not made by man like John Frieda or GNC, 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. Two others also:

      http://www.webmd.com/skin-beauty/features/top-10-foods-for-healthy-hair

      http://www.menshealth.com/spotlight/hair/best-food-for-healthy-hair.php

      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.

  10. QUESTION:
    What kinds of vitamins can make hair grow really fast?
    My hair has stopped growing, its growing extremely slow. I would like to know any vitamins, tips, foods, anything to make it grow really fast.

    • ANSWER:
      Hair isn’t alive and it doesn’t grow. Hair is an accumulation of a protein called keratin inside the follicle. As it builds up on the bottom it is pushed out the top, creating “hair growth”. This is a biological process so nothing that you do to your hair, like trimming it or using some “special” shampoo can help. Eat a healthy, protein rich diet and take a regular multivitamin daily. So no, shampoos cannot in any way accelerate hair growth. Growth is almost entirely genetic, and a little bit diet, so all that you can do it change your diet. Split ends cause breakage on the bottom of your hair, not at the base. Hair is an inanimate strand of protein, nothing that you do to the bottom if it can have any effect on the top of it, unlike some hair stylist’s children, who never went to cosmetology school seem to believe!

  11. QUESTION:
    Do prenatal vitamins make hair grow longer faster?
    I want to grow my hair out long in like a month..any tips on how to do that without getting extentions?

    • ANSWER:
      Okay hear goes……..No prenatal vitamins will not make you hair grow faster or longer. However the prenatal vitamins will help keep your hair healthy there fore it will become longer faster because it isn’t beaking off at the ends as bad. Another way to keep your hair growing faster is to keep it trimmed on the ends. Split ends are gone and hair is healther. Good luck to you and I hope this helps. :)

  17. QUESTION:
    Best Brand of Vitamins to make Hair Grow Faster?
    Which brand of vitamins are the best to make hair grow longer, faster?

    • ANSWER:
      I have a little below, waist length hair and it grew pretty fast and extremely long when I was using “Buried Treasure PreNatal Plus DHA Complete” and “Buried Treasure Hair, Skin & Nails Complete”. These are liquid vitamins and to me they are the best available. In combination, they contain the appropriate amount of nutrients for healthy, quick hair growth like vitamins A, all B’s, C, D, E, K and especially, biotin, folic acid, msm and horsetail leaf. I cannot digest large pills and the majority of them makes me nauseous for hours. The benefits of liquid vitamins start as soon as they are consumed. It affects faster compared to the solid form of vitamins, that is, pills. I still use them and my hair has continued to grow.
      Remember, hair products only work externally. But for internally, you must take vitamins, drink plenty of water to keep hydrated and eat healthy. Sometimes hair will fallout and become impossible to reach it’s full growth potential due to dehydration. Hair grows from the inside out, not the other way around! I hope this helps. Good Luck!

  18. QUESTION:
    How much faster to Prenatal vitamins make your hair grow?
    My hair used to cover my whole back and used to be really thick until i started straightening it. It’s still long but not as long as before and it’s quite thin now. How much faster will prenatal vitamins make my hair grow?

    • ANSWER:
      you probably should not start to take prenatals unless your doctor recommends that you do. may i suggest a vitamin that is made just for your hair and nails.
      here is a link to one of the many brands that make them:

      http://www.vitaminworld.com/pages/categories.asp?cid=30&xs=9819F624Fsencea

      also, prenatals don’t necessarily make your hair or nails grow. when a woman is pregnant she experiences extreme hormone changes, some of these changes involve accelerated hair growth . for instance i am pregnant with my third son, my first pregnancy, i experienced no difference in my hair thickness(i was taking prenatals through pregnancy), with my second son, about half of my hair FELL OUT!! in CHUNKS! and i was taking prenatals the whole time. it was just my hormones and not due to whether or not i took prenatals. and with this pregnancy, i am not losing hair or growing hair any faster.

      see what i mean?
      good luck!

    • ANSWER:
      Actually any brand works just fine! I’ve been taking the store brand prenatals for almost a year (I’m not pregnant and dont plan on it) and I’ve noticed a significant change in my hair growth. So, if you want to pay for the expensive name-brand vitamins it’s fine, but if you buy store brand ones they work just as well. :-)

  26. QUESTION:
    Will prenatal vitamins make my hair grow if I’m not pregnant?
    I want my hair to grow, and I want to gain about 5-10 pounds, so I’m taking prenatal vitamins because I heard they will help. Is this true? What else will make me gain weight? I have a naturally fast metabolism but recently I’ve lost alot of weight and I feel I’m too skinny…

    • ANSWER:
      Pre-natal vitamins are just a standard multi-vitamin that has a few extra bits of things that are good for helping a baby grow. They won’t make you gain weight.

      The average rate of hair growth is 1/2 an inch a month. The maximum rate that your hair will grow is determined by your genetics, but since most people aren’t getting all the vitamins that they need, their hair growth slows down. Taking a multi-vitamin can bring it back up to optimum.

      Excercise will help you gain weight – you want muscle not fat.

    How much does your hair grow in one month?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, a lot of vitamin E will help hair growth. If you’re ever looking good for shampoos and conditioner, look for ones that have vitamin E in them, it keeps hair healthy and growing.

      And I don’t know that answer to your last question, you should probably google it.

  28. QUESTION:
    What foods,vitamins, or drinks make hair grow faster?
    I just got my hair cut a few hours ago. Its too short and the bangs are too. Are there any foods, vitamins, or drinks (water, milk, juice) that can make my hair grow faster to the length I desire?

    • ANSWER:
      Your options are pretty slim; even if you do everything you are supposed to you may not actually see an increase in growth. Hair isn’t alive and it doesn’t grow. Hair is an accumulation of a protein called keratin inside the follicle. As it builds up on the bottom it is pushed out the top, creating “hair growth”. This is a biological process so nothing that you do to your hair, like trimming it or using some “special” shampoo can help. Eat a healthy, protein rich diet and take a regular multivitamin daily. Since hair is protein, eating foods rich in protein like peanut butter, eggs, and fish can help to accelerate growth. Milk, water, and juice aren’t going to do anything as growth is not based on general health but protein intake.

    • ANSWER:
      Biotin and MSM have been proven to increase the growth of hair. Be careful with biotin though because some persons have had acne breakouts due to the increased amount of biotin in their diet.

      You can google MSM it has many health benefits and basically its composed of sulfur, which increases the growth of hair.

      You can find both at any pharmacy or health store.

  45. QUESTION:
    Do the California Natural Hair Vitamins actually make your hair grow just longer, just stronger, or both?
    I’ve always wanted to have longer hair, & i have seen reviews on the vitamins, but im not really sure if they make your hair longer or just help with breakage & split ends.

    • ANSWER:
      The don’t make your hair longer. Hair grows out from your head at the same rate, about 1/2 inch a month. They MIGHT make your hair a bit stronger, if you’re vitamin deficient, which will help prevent breakage, but if you blowdry, and hot iron your hair, you’ll still have breakage and split ends, because the heat damages your hair.

      Try Herbal Essence hair strengthening shampoo. Blue bottle, with “pearl essence” in it. It helps strengthen your hair a bit, and try to minimize blow drying and hot irons.

      Save your money on the vitamins, the ads are to make you buy the stuff, the vitamins don’t make that big a difference.

      I have also heard conflicting answers on this. But i think its ok, just compare the ingredients to a regular multi vitamin and you’ll see they are pretty much the ame. But for best results, try taking biotin, or they have a vitamin specifically for hair and nail growth you can check out too.

    • ANSWER:
      1. A good diet and exercise program will benefit your hair

      2. A generous intake of water and plenty of rest.

      3. A vitamin and mineral supplement can also benefit your hair.

      In addition to these basic health steps, you can help the inner growth of your hair in other ways. Each of the following secrets may help make your hair grow faster.

      Scalp Massages May Help Make Hair Grow Faster

      You can help stimulate the circulation of the scalp and ensure good health of your hair through massaging your scalp with your fingers. This helps the hair root receive its nutrients and drives away wastes which cause hair cells to grow slowly and even die.

      To do: A scalp massage should be performed at least once a day, if not more. It is good to do it just before shampooing your hair. Simply rub the pads of your fingers about your head, in a fashion that feels good. Your scalp should feel like it is tingling. Do this for about 2 to 3 minutes. Even if this doesn’t make your hair grow faster, it feels divine!

      Special Recipe for Your Hair

      If you whip up this special recipe once a week, your hair will get enough nutrients to be the shiniest, healthiest hair on your block! It’s a delicious way to help your hair grow faster!

      Fruity-Tootie Milkshake for Healthy Hair:

      1 cup fat-free yogurt
      2 cups skim milk
      1 small banana
      2 tsp brewer’s yeast
      1 tsp wheat germ
      1 medium papaya or mango, sliced
      ½ tsp. cinnamon
      1 tsp vanilla essence
      1 tsp molasses
      Process in blender for 3 minutes. Drink slowly.
      The papaya or mango contains vitamin A, which combats dandruff and adds shine. The bananas, brewer’s yeast, yogurt, and molasses help the hair maintain a rich color, and the proper pH-balance. The wheat germ promotes growth, so it will help your hair grow faster, and the calcium in the milk strengthens the hair!

      Foods for Healthy Hair

      Fill your plate with plenty of spinach, raisins, and beans . These iron-rich foods stimulate the circulation of your scalp, which may help your hair grow faster.

      Exercise is Good for Your Hair Too!

      You know how invaluable exercise is to your heart and lungs. It improves your circulation and reduces stress which contributes to healthy hair and thus may help make hair grow faster.

      A Balanced Diet Can Help Make Hair Grow Faster.

      A balanced diet is a must for everyone, especially someone who is interested in growing their hair longer. You must include the proper portions of all the food groups in your daily intake in order to get the proper nutrients, including proteins and fatty acids, which are important to the health of your hair. Only healthy hair will grow.

      Ways to Prevent Damage to Your Hair and Maybe Make Hair Grow Faster:

      Never over-dry your hair. If possible, always use the lowest possible setting on your blow dryer.
      Use a thermal protector on your hair whether you’re blow drying or using a flat iron.
      Instead of using a brush on wet hair, use a wide-toothed comb to prevent the hair from splitting.
      If your hair tangles easily you may also want to use a detangler.
      Keep your head out of the sun. That’s not only good advice for your hair, but great advice for your face! If this is not possible be sure to wear sunscreen on your face and a conditioner with UV protection on your hair.
      Cut your hair to make hair grow. A trim 3 or 4 times per year will even out any new growth and make your hair appear fuller It will also relieve the hair of many split ends which will otherwise result in broken hair shafts which cause the hair to look frizzy.

      If you just have to have long hair now and don’t have the patience to wait for you hair to grow, you may want to do what Paris Hilton and many other celebrities do and consider hair extensions. Real or not, either way, you too can be the owner of a Rapunzel-esque mane sooner than you think!

      You can also get tips to Make Your Hair Grow Faster from your doctor.

  49. QUESTION:
    Do prenatal vitamins make your hair grow faster/healthy?
    I’m 17,and I want longer/Healthy hair but I don’t want to take just any vitamin someone recommended prenatal vitamins but shouldn’t that only be taken while pregnant.

    • ANSWER:
      Those are probably the best vitamins a woman can take. Essential vitamins in it can definitely make various aspects of your body improve and become healthier. As for longer I don’t think anything can really do that. And anyone having a period or a baby can take those. The only people who can’t take them are men and any woman at any age not having a period ex. menopause or birth control.

  50. QUESTION:

    Or are there better alternatives?
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Healthy hair growth starts with good nutrition. Your hair needs certain nutrients to grow properly. This can be achieved by getting enough of the right fats, vitamins, and minerals from your diet, or from dietary supplements. There are also some other supplements that may also be able to help, like saw palmetto, Pygeum Africanum, MSM, and grape seed extract. You should talk to your doctor before you do, or take anything, and also do your own research (wikipedia, pubmed, etc.) as well.
