Top 5 Vitamins for Luxurious Hair

Not only are vitamins and nutrients essential for a healthy body and bodily function, but they also play a key role in keeping the hair on our heads from shedding. A high-quality multi-vitamin is important and of course, a healthy diet is essential, however, many suffer from nutrient deficiencies due to underlying conditions such as a thyroid problem- both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism and a hormonal imbalance. Some people will require additional supplementation to bring us back up to optimal healthy, luxurious hair.
The truth is hair loss can be a complex process that generally involves various genetic, hormonal and even environmental factors. Just like our skin, the hair follicle is subject to the aging process! Sometimes hair loss can even be due to a vitamin deficiency. Fortunately, Modena Hair Institute is here to tell you it can easily be corrected by adding vitamin-rich foods to your diet or supplementation. Some vitamins have antioxidant properties that help ward off factors of hair loss, and some vitamins help the body balance hormone levels – another factor that puts a halt to your hair growth!

  1. Fish Oil – Oils rich in fatty acids have been used extensively in both animal and human studies to evaluate the effects it has on hair and skin health. Omega-3 fats nourish the hair, support hair thickening and reduces inflammation that can lead to hair loss. In one study, almost 90% of participants reported a reduction in hair loss and an improvement in hair diameter and hair density after a 6-month study of men and women suffering from male and female-pattern baldness.
  2. Zinc – Zinc compounds have been used for decades as a natural way in treating hair loss conditions such as Telogen Effluvium and Alopecia Areata. Zinc is also a potent inhibitor of hair follicle regression, and it accelerates hair follicle recovery. Dr. Yazdan considers zinc one of the most important vitamins for hair growth!
  3. B-Complex – Biotin and Vitamin B5 have been used as natural alternatives to hair loss. Biotin benefits your hair by rebuilding the hair that has been damaged by heat, whether it be exposure to sun, blow drying or ironing. Vitamin B5 supports the adrenal glands, which also help stimulate hair growth.
  4. Iron – Several studies have examined the direct link between an iron deficiency and hair loss, some suggest that an iron deficiency may be related to Alopecia Areata, Androgenetic Alopecia, Telogen Effluvium and diffuse hair loss with women being at a higher risk of hair loss due to an iron deficiency. Load up on your spinach and collard greens ladies!
  5. Vitamin D – Hair follicles are highly sensitive to hormones. In the scientific world, it is well-known that Alopecia Areata is commonly found in patients with a vitamin D deficiency. Direct sun is the best way to absorb your essential daily intake of vitamin D, however, using topical solutions and eating vitamin D-rich foods such as salmon, halibut, whitefish and mushrooms can also increase your vitamin D levels.

The benefits of biotin

Biotin (also known as vitamin B7) is becoming increasingly popular in the vitamin and supplement aisle of most pharmacies and health stores.
For those who are unfamiliar, biotin is a water-soluble vitamin that is a part of the B-complex vitamin family. Its rise to fame can be contributed to its support in the beauty world.
Biotin has many benefits but its most praised is its support of healthy hair, skin, and nails. In studies, biotin has been shown to promote the growth of hair, strengthen and grow nails, and keep skin glowing. Individuals who take the vitamin report better feeling hair and skin, as well as overall improved health.
In addition to supporting healthy hair, skin, and nails, biotin also supports a healthy metabolism, improves glucose intolerance, balances blood sugar, protects brain function, promotes a healthy cardiovascular system, supports thyroid and adrenal function, plus more!
Is this do-it-all vitamin too good to be true?
While biotin is most definitely not a ‘miracle’ cure (news flash: this doesn’t exist!), there is nothing wrong with using vitamins and supplements to compensate for nutrients that may be lacking in the body. Assuring that your body gets the healthy micronutrients it needs, will allow your body to fuel its processes and help you run on maximum efficiency (like having super supple hair, strong nails, and glowing skin)!

Do hair growth vitamins really work?

We’ve all seen them on the shelves at our local store as well as advertisements on television. But do hair growth vitamins really help us achieve healthy, longer, thicker hair?
To answer this question we must first educate ourselves on what exactly is in these vitamins. Though exact ingredients and profiles vary brand to brand, most hair growth vitamins contain some combination of vitamin c, vitamin a, vitamin b3, fatty acids, collagen, folic acid, and biotin.
These nutrients are essential to hair growth in humans. According to manufacturers’ claims, these vitamins can stimulate hair growth, prevent hair loss, promote healthy texture, fight dryness and damage, decrease scalp flaking, and prevent breakage.
Sounds great but do they actually work? While there is promising research that these nutrients are beneficial to our hair as well our skin and nails, some of the doses needed to see results are much higher than any found in an over the counter capsule. That being said – they don’t hurt. If there is a vitamin deficiency at the root of your hair problems, increasing your vitamin intake can be a good place to start.
Just don’t be unrealistic about the results. While hair growth vitamins can help some people, they aren’t a miracle cure for hair loss and won’t help in more severe clinical hair loss cases. If you fall into the latter category, we suggest meeting with a qualified hair transplant surgeon who specializes in medical management to figure out where to begin.
