Daniel asks…

Do prenatal vitamins help hair grow?

I’ve heard from tons of people and even doctors. They claim that prenatal vitamins help hair grow fast. I tried it for on year and it did nothing. Any insights?

vti answers:

Tons of people including DOCTORS?

REALLY? Have you tried it?

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.

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 (pomegranate), and yellow fruits (persimmons, mangoes) 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.
Spend 5-10 mins. On a sunny day, cut your split ends, using 2″ scissors, strand by strand, section by section. Then 2x a year get a good trim. When I was in HS, my hair grew from bob to waist-length, took 3 1/2-4 years.

Steven asks…

Hair Growth Vitamins?

I’m trying to grow my hair down to my ribs and at the moment its at my collar bone so i wondered if hair growth vitamins are any good to help fast healthy hair growth and if you have tried them then can you tell me what ones you used and if not what vitamins would help my hair grow healthy.

Oh and do you think what im doing at the moment is good for helping hair growth. I have stopped using hair straighteners and hair curlers. I only wash my hair about 3 times a weeks to keep the natural oils and i always just tye my hair back in a pony tail with only my fringe out. Is this good for helping hair growth and any recomendations for helping hair growth?

Thanks.

vti answers:

Yes, vitamins are excellent for hair growth; one word- SILICA.

Keep a good diet- try to eat a lot but keep it very healthy. Fruit and veg, lots of protein.

I think keeping the natural oils in your hair is a really good idea, and if you can go without the straighteners thats a bonus too.

I would go for a conditioning treatment (namely a keratin treatment) at the salon once a month if you are having your hair trimmed less. It helps maintain the keratin in your hair which makes it stronger.

Good luck!!

Nancy asks…

Has anyone tried omega 3 fish oil vitamins for hair growth?

Has anyone ever tried omega 3 fish oil hair vitamins from Trader Joe’s to growh hair longer & healthier?

vti answers:

Vitamin E for Hair. Omega 3 Is a very good vitamin for Brain Development not for hair development. Also Protein.

“Vitamin E is a powerful anti-oxidant that helps increase circulation. Vitamin E increases oxygen uptake, which improves circulation to the scalp. It improves overall health. Since hair health is tied to the immune system, vitamin E is believed to stimulate hair growth by enhancing the immune function.” <-Source

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.

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 $176 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 $20 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.

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. . .

I’ve responded more inquiries from girls under 15 (guys too) about hair falls, and I have a feeling the industry is doing more to our products, than before, because it messing up with hair loss and hair growth to our kids!!!!! So, it’s best to leave your hair alone, because you KNOW how it was like when your hair was long. Just be patience. Healthy hair is not to be rushed.
