Hair Growth Vitamins Deficiency? Look In The Mirror!
What’s the big secret to healthy and beautiful hair? Well, it’s not a secret anymore, but it’s big alright! Did you know that the look of your hair and scalp can indicate hair growth vitamins deficiency?
Isn’t this remarkable? Your good health depends mostly on a balanced diet consuming all the essential nutrients like vitamins, minerals and proteins (ok, and a little bit of exercise!).
Are hair growth vitamins so important & how can you tell if you lack any?
It’s said that hair is often the “mirror” of our nutritional status, since the hair texture and scalp condition is directly connected with the nutrients we take from food. Nutritional losses can lead to dull and brittle hair and other distressing conditions like dandruff, thinning hair or even hair loss.
If you agree that the hair is the frame of the face, don’t you want that frame to be beautiful, hence healthy?
I am sure you do.
But you probably give yourself excuses by saying that the modern and fast lifestyle takes up all your free time forcing you to skip meals or eat fast food. I can totally feel you (I’m no saint, I’ve had my share of french fries, burgers and chocolates), but deep down you understand that if you want healthy hair you must eat healthy too.
This is the way to take naturally all the essential hair growth vitamins.
And that is the big secret my friend! Pure and simple.
Of course you can take vitamin supplements, like Biotin or Vitamin C, to enhance the health of your hair. I am not against taking vitamins for hair (though under physician’s advice), but don’t let yourself be misled that miracles are going to happen in a heartbeat.
If you don’t follow a healthy diet no vitamin supplement for hair growth alone is going to do the job for you. And if you do have a balanced diet then you probably won’t need any.
Can hair symptoms & scalp conditions ring a bell about specific vitamin deficiencies?
Even from childhood, somehow we understood that beautiful hair is a strong asset to one’s appearance. Remember all the ribbons, hair clips, bobbles and headbands you had as a child? How you used to admire your Barbie’s hair while combing it? The difference between you and that Barbie is that you need good nutritional habits to “build” strong and shiny hair.
Whether we like it or not, having beautiful hair is not only a great asset for your appearance but for your confidence also.
You want your hair to impress. You are always ready to try new products or even make your own remedies that promise hair growth and shiny, silky, beautiful hair. And don’t get me wrong, I really love using hair products or trying different hair recipes. But isn’t easier – plus healthier – to improve your diet first?
By asking you to take a good look in the mirror, I encourage you to observe your hair and scalp carefully to spot any changes.
The sooner you address the issue, the better!
- Please have in mind that there are several reasons which can lead to hair and scalp problems, such as genetic factors, drug intake or even a thyroid problem. Your hair can be a powerful indicator not only for vitamin deficiencies but for other things that may be going on in your body, so pay attention to it!
- If your hair problem is mild, the first thing you should do is to make sure your food has all the hair growth vitamins you need.
- Check if the hair products you use are suitable for your hair type. Also a visit to your dermatologist could be a fine idea. Darlings, don’t procrastinate if you experience hair issues.
- For more persistent and serious hair and scalp conditions a thorough medical evaluation is important to eliminate the possibility of a physical or phychological health condition.
Therefore, if you don’t face a serious health problem or a genetic issue, which you must address with your doctor, vitamins we take from food are our best ally and the secret that brings us closer to our desire for beautiful and healthy hair.
Let’s get to the juicy stuff!
Check out the hair symptoms and scalp conditions & which vitamin deficiencies can be associated with.
After all my research and personal experience, I can definitely say that the key is a well-balanced diet.
Although your hair can alarm you about vitamin deficiencies, it’s rather impossible to relate the lack of just one particular nutrient to a specific hair and scalp condition. If you think that taking one or two hair growth vitamins will do the trick, well I am sorry to disappoint you but it won’t.
On the other hand, you must not dive into a “pool of vitamins” without consideration. Don’t take it lightly; you must respect the daily intake of each vitamin, otherwise an overdose could cause you problems. For instance, too much Vitamin A can cause hair loss due to its toxicity!
You might say that some vitamins are more important than others for hair growth, but imagine that all nutrients are like an orchestra and your body is the maestro. I like that image in my head…I can even hear the music!
Do you have any bad eating habits? Are you taking all the hair growth vitamins your body needs?
To You With Love.
