Vitamins are great for healthy hair

You can improve the health of your hair by making sure you ingest the right vitamins! Vitamins are in many of your common foods and can improve the quality of your life. Not only does it help with your immune system, nail, and skin, but it also has many benefits for your hair. What you can receive from vitamins is thicker, shinier, and smoother hair. Who doesn’t want that? Here I will explain the different types of vitamins and what its benefits are.

Vitamin B:

Most vitamin B’s are important for hair growth. These are B3, B5, B6 and B12. B3 (Niacin) is essential for a healthy scalp with good circulation. You can find B3 in fish and chicken. You can find B5 in eggs. B5 can prevent grey hairs.

Vitamin A:

This is an antioxidant that improves hair texture and sheen. “Vitamin A assists in producing sebum in the scalp, which leads to healthy oils throughout the hair. A vitamins are available in supplement form, and many foods are also rich in A vitamins, including spinach, broccoli, cheese, cabbage, peaches and apricots.”  http://www.overstock.com/guides/best-vitamins-for-healthy-hair

Vitamin E:

Helps with the appearance of hair. It helps with oil production and is very essential for the scalp. Vitamin E is found in soy beans, nuts, and beans.

A balanced diet is the source for healthy living. Just like any other part of your body, your hair’s health depends on what you decide to eat. Your damaged hair can easily be the result of a malnutritioned diet. Lisa Dryer, a New York nutritionist explains that the nutrients you eat is what fortifies your hair follicles and the scalp that surrounds it (Healthy foods WebMD). An article in WebMD “Top ten foods for healthy hair” says “If you eat a balanced, varied, protein-rich diet that focuses on [healthy foods], you’ll be giving your hair the TLC it needs and deserves.”

Of course, there is no miracle nutrient that will magically give you perfect hair. There are other factors that can contribute to undesirable hair, such as hormonal deficiencies, smoking habits, stress, and lack of sleep. But knowing this, don’t underestimate the power of your diet. According to nutritionists here are the best foods that can help you on your journey to healthy hair:
