It’s important to include vitamins your hair needs in your diet. It is no secret that nutrition plays a key role in the wellbeing of your skin, but did you know that your diet also impacts hair-health? Vitamin deficiencies can stunt the vibrancy of your hair, leading to hair-loss. Fear not – natural vitamins are the answer to your haircare worries.
Here are the 5 essential vitamins your hair needs:
1.Vitamin A – healthy quantities of vitamin A provides an array of benefits to the condition of your hair, including an increase in scalp oil and hair-growth while repairing any pre-existing damage. While a lot vitamin A can be detrimental, the right amount promotes moisture and growth for healthier hair.

2.Vitamin B – common vitamin B complexes, such as B-12, are known to increase the strength and conditioning of your hair while also encouraging growth. Vitamin B contains substantial amounts of biotin which is a revolutionary factor for growing hair, while also aiding the passage of oxygen to the scalp.
3.Vitamin C – due to the plentiful production of collagen, vitamin C is crucial in the regeneration of aging hair. For younger-looking hair, vitamin C works as an anti-oxidant to rejuvenate greying and mature hair. Add peppers, citrus fruits, strawberries, kale and grapefruit to your diet for luscious locks.

4.Iron – iron-deficiency anaemia can accelerate hair loss, with women at a higher risk of incurring thinner and receding hair due to lack of iron. Iron-rich foods such as spinach, oysters, eggs, red meat and lentils boost hair growth, preventing unnecessary shedding.

5.Protein – a protein-rich diet can also enhance elasticity, strength, springiness and effervescence while preventing hair-loss. As our hair is primarily made up of a protein known as keratin, a steady supply of protein is vital to maintain the overall health of hair follicles.
