Vital hair vitamins
If you’ve experienced sudden or unexplained hair thinning, it’s good advice to see a health provider to determine the cause. Do not be surprised if you are informed that your diet lacks certain essential vitamins.
A blood test can provide crucial indicators for what essential nutrients (if any) are missing in your diet and your individual needs.

The Facts: The following vitamins are recognised for their beneficial effects on the hair follicles and are considered to be critical for healthy, luscious hair growth:
Helps create vibrant, shiny hair because it contributes to fat synthesis in hair follicles, thus playing a huge part in the production of sebum. However, an excessive intake of vitamin A can be toxic and lead to hair loss.
Vitamin B8 (Inositol):
Considered one of the key nutrients to spur hair growth and prevent balding. As an antioxidant, B8 has a protective effect on hair follicles.
Vitamin B3 (Niacin):
Helps increase circulation to the scalp, and thus increases oxygen and other vitamin transportation to the scalp and follicles.
Vitamin B5 (Panthenol):
Studies have shown that topically applied panthenol has the ability to thicken and repair damaged hair.
The relatively small molecular structure of B5 allows it to penetrate the hair shaft and to hold moisture within each hair follicle. Thus, your hair is provided with pliability from the inside and this gives lustre on the outside.
