Donald asks…

Does Super B complex Vitamins help prevent hair loss?

I’m 19 years old. Lately all the sudden I have started to think about my possible hair loss. I might have lost a little wee bit already, I’m not sure. My mom’s dad has lost hair with a receded hairline and a little bit of a bald scalp. And my dad lost a lot.

So I saw these “Super B Complex vitamins with folic acid” laying around my house. I had googled this vitamin and some sites says it does help prevent it. So does it help prevent hair loss? Help regrow at all? Make hair grow faster (not sure I want that)? Just what all does it do?


vti answers:

It is not the best way to regrow hair!

Better try some natural options!

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. But anyway you can always try and get real results.

Year ago I suffered from hair loss and since hair loss is hereditary my dad suffered from it 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 you should use some herbal that case Provillus 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 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

good luck!

George asks…

Vitamins stop hair loss?

I want to drastically cut down on what i eat but fear my hair will become thin/gross. Would taking vitamins stop this?

vti answers:


Vitamins can certainly help but should only be thought of honestly as supplements to a healthy diet rather than your main intake source. There are plenty of foods you can eat in reasonable portions that will supply the nutrients your hair requires to stay healthy.

Foods high in protein, low in carbs and fat are recommended as well as high in iron, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin B-12. A good mix of products containing these nutrients include fish, canola oil, red meats, walnuts, broccoli, soy products, poultry, beans, eggs, and fortified breads & cereals.

A balanced diet containing these sorts of foods will help maintain your hair, which you can again assist with supplements.
