What vitamins do you need for beautiful hair?
For me the question itself sounds a bit strange because I think we need all the necessary minerals and vitamins for a healthy living and being “just” beautiful cannot be a real aim. Our amazing body builds every little piece of million cells time after time, but to do that it is required to vitalize it. If you miss these essential components your human body cannot create that shiny hair, perfect skin or strong bones. So let’s see what vitamins are the most important for your hair.
This vitamin can help you about fighting against dandruff given it prevents your scalp and hair from drying. You can find a lot of it in cod liver oil, carrot, spinach or egg yolk. If you don’t have enough from this vitamin you may have problems with your eyes first given this is essential for them as well. You must be careful because overdose can be dangerous too.
This vitamin can do for you more than having beautiful skin. It has a good effect on oxygen uptake of blood and helps to grow shiny hair and reduce hair loss. To provide sufficient amount soybeans, avocado, olive oil or broccoli can help you.
It is a fat-soluble vitamin just like the first mentioned Vitamin A so that’s why you need fat for beautiful hair and for being healthy as well.
The last vitamins I would like to mention in this post belong to the Group of vitamin B:
- Pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5) protects and strengthen your hair because it can do a lot about hydration. You can find it in so many kinds of food that lack of this vitamin happens only rare occasions. You can have the biggest amount from zoogenic nutriment like liver or egg but also whole grains contain a lot.
- Biotin (Vitamin B7) is perfect to support your hair given it can make it more elastic. It assists in metabolism and help to build keratin, the main component of hair. In case of lack of it you may have inflammation of skin and lips, hair loss and even exhaustion or depression but you can refill it from yeast, egg, nuts or lentils.
These vitamins have much more roles to keep our overall health and balance but you can do a lot for healthy and beautiful hair if you listen to your eating habits and of course if you don’t forget drinking enough water. Unfortunately our food contains less and less nutritional value as decades pass by so more and more people take vitamin pills to have the correct amount of vitamins and minerals.
Not only your food and diet influence the health of your hair but some bad habits, too. They may lead to several hair problems, including hairloss. Learn more about these two:
