We all love our hair. The weird thing about hair is it doesn’t really provide any functionality to our body, so we don’t really need it. In fact, hairs are strands of dead cells hanging over our head. But the cool thing about hair is it can make a person beautiful. If your hair is fixed up gorgeously, then there’s a confidence booster and no other body part can do the same.
That is why hair care is very important to maintain or improve beautiful hair and hair growth. This could be done naturally by taking the right amounts of nutrients daily.
Our hair, just like the rest of our body in general, needs vitamins and nutrients for it to grow healthy. Any deficiency can obviously seen right away in hair like brittleness, dull, dryness and hair loss. It is very important to know which nutrients are important for hair.
Vitamin A is the most important vitamin for the development of strong cells, muscle tissues and hair producing cells found under the hair follicle. This vitamin, along with silicon and zinc prevents obstruction of the skin oil glands or sebaceous glands that produce sebum. Sebum is a natural oil that condition the skin and hair. Also, vitamin A is excellent for skin health which prevents any scalp conditions like dandruff and eczema.
B complex vitamins are also need for cellular growth but there are specific B vitamins for hair. The so called hair vitamins are biotin and pantothenic acid. Biotin or vitamin B7 makes each hair strand strong, minimizing hair breakage. Pantothenic acid or vitamin B5, popularly known as provitamin B5 makes hair really soft, shinny, slippery and beautiful. This prevents hair tangles, hence, prevents hair breakage. It is important to mention that these vitamins need to be applied directly to hair to make them work as such. A lot of people are misleading to consume large doses of these vitamins to strengthen and beautify hair.
