Do vitamins help your hair grow?

Yes. I’m going to show you how. If you’re new here - welcome!

First off let’s really quickly cover how hair grows - because this gives us an insight into how vitamins help your hair to grow.

There are three main phases of hair growth:

Anogen - when hair is actively growing - The cells in the hair bulb divide rapidly creating new hair growth - this can last 2 to 7 years- 80 to 90% of your hair is in the Anagen Phase

Catagen - This is a period of around two weeks when your hair. In this transitional phase, hair stops growing and detaches itself from the blood supply and is then named a club hair.

Telogen - This phase begins with a resting period, where club hairs rest in the root while new hair begins to grow beneath it. This phase lasts for around 3 months.

After this time, the resting club hairs will fall out to allow the new hair to come through the hair follicle.

When your follicles don’t receive the blood they need for nourishment, the hair growth cycle is interrupted.

This forces hair follicles to move prematurely into the Telogen or resting phase until the scalp becomes a better environment for healthy growth.

Overall vitamins help in three major ways to boosting hair growth - and particularly fighting male pattern baldness!

-improving circulation at the scalp

- nourishing the scalp and hair follicles

- fighting DHT and the enzyme that produces it

Before we get into how vitamins help hair - it’s really important to note that

So how do vitamins help your hair to grow?

Like any other part of your body, your hair needs a number of different nutrients to repair itself, to be healthy and grow.

When we’re not taking care of ourselves, junk food, lack of sleep, alcohol and sugar - these harm our cells and can lead to mild nutritional deficiencies - which can cause hair loss.

Factors such as age, genetics and hormones also affect hair growth, optimal nutrient intake is key.

Let’s discuss the vitamins and nutrients that are key for hair growth!

Vitamin A

All cells need vitamin A for growth. This includes hair, the fastest growing tissue in the human body.

Vitamin A also helps skin glands make an oily substance called sebum. Sebum moisturizes the scalp and helps keep hair healthy

Diets deficient in vitamin A may lead to several problems, including hair loss

While it’s important to get enough vitamin A, too much may be dangerous - so do’t go wild with them!

Sweet potatoes, carrots, pumpkins, spinach and kale are all high in beta-carotene, which is turned into vitamin A.

Vitamin A can also be found in animal products such as milk, eggs and yogurt. Cod liver oil is a particularly good source.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C and Iron work best when taken together. Foods high in Vitamin C help to ensure that Iron is more effectively absorbed by your body.

Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant.

This study confirms that Vitamin C helps to protect against oxidative stress caused by free radicals.

What are free radicals?

Without going way too much detail - free radicals are unpaired electrons.

Oxygen in the body has splits into two single atoms.

The free radicals are singular atoms that seek out other electrons so they can become a pair. This causes damage to cells, proteins and your DNA.

Vitamin C protects against the damage these do.

On top of that Vitamin C is needed to create a protein known as collagen — an important part of hair structure.

What to eat: Strawberries, sweet potatoes, blackcurrants, blueberries, oranges and papaya.

Now before we go on - if you’re really serious about growing your hair,

so you’ve really got to look after yourself to get the most out of these vitamins

as well as eating the right foods, you’re gonna need to make sure you’re doing exercise, which keeps circulation healthy, healthy circulation, means blood is bringing nutrients to your scalp and hair - so it’s nice and nourished

Reducing stress, as Cortisol, the stress hormone can move hair into the shedding phase,

Vitamin E

Just like Vitamin C, Vitamin E is an antioxidant that can prevent oxidative stress.

This small research study found that people with hair loss experienced a dramatic increase in hair growth after supplementing with vitamin E for 8 months.

To get more Vitamin E, pack your diet with spinach, avocados, sunflower seeds and almonds.


Like vitamin E, Selenium acts as an antioxidant.

The Office of Dietary Supplements points out that Selenium is an even more effective as an antioxidant when combined with vitamin E,

Selenium also helps regulate your thyroid, the small butterfly-shaped gland which controls your metabolism.

It’s recommended that you get 55 micrograms of selenium every day.

And there are lots of natural ways to improve the health of your scalp, including

Daily scalp massage 

Essential Oils
