Supplements To Regrow Hair

Q. Is there any truth to the idea that some supplements can regrow hair?

A. Before I can answer this, we first need to identify what can lead to hair loss. Genetics is an obvious reason; however, aging, diet, stress, diseases, hormonal imbalances, and steroids can alter hair growth, resulting in hair loss. Poor treatment of your hair may also result in brittle, dry, thin hair and even hair loss. Therefore, I suggest you consider your lifestyle, personal hygiene, and current shampoo/conditioner before considering supplements. Keeping your hair healthy and ensuring that it grows properly requires proper nutrition, just like the rest of your body. This is where many companies suggest that their supplements can lead to hair growth. Most often, these products are supplying essential nutrients and correcting minor vitamin and mineral deficiencies that results in weak hair that may fall out. Therefore, numerous supplements may be beneficial for your hair if they contain essential nutrients such as the B-vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin A etc. Luckily, you can save your money as these deficiencies can also be corrected by eating a varied and balanced diet. Consult a health care professional.
