Additional Hair Care Information:
It's not always the case that follicle loss or baldness is an indicator that you are suffering from a serious disease or condition. Sometimes it can be something as simple as your diet and what you are eating. It's not always some complicated reason that might be causing the condition.
There has been some evidence that diet and hair loss are linked. Vitamins actually can help prevent this for some people if a regimen is started early enough. For those looking to stop hair loss in its tracks, but something like a hair transplant or a topical natural hair loss treatment are not in the cards for them, we recommend looking to a vitamin routine. Vitamins can insure you are getting all the proper nutrients in your diet that may not be able to come all from what you are eating. Sometimes a good vitamin regimen can keep you healthy, strong and keep you looking healthy and vibrant.
On average, normally a person loses about 100 hairs per day, which is very typical. But these are always replaced by new ones constantly growing in. It is when the natural growth process is interrupted or changed, sending the follicles into the resting for much longer than normal. When someone is not getting the proper nutrients in their diet, such as the right amount of protein, calcium, etc., this has the potential to interrupt this normal growth pattern. So when you are losing that normal 100 hairs per day, they aren't being as readily replaced as they should be.
One vitamin that is great for the health of the follicles and scalp is Vitamin B6. Another one is Vitamin A, vitamin E, niacin, and folic acid. Vitamin A ensures a healthy sebum – the most important part of the follicle. If you are looking to take more of a multivitamin, take prenatal vitamins to ensure healthy growth and avoid any kind of thinning.
Biotin is another big one for the health of our hair. Too little biotin can cause thinning or weak and brittle hair – and makes it more susceptible to graying. Another vitamin supplement to take is inositol.
