Essential Vitamins for Hair Growth Chart




I beleive that hair vitamins can be essential for promoting healthier, stronger and longer hair. I know first-hand what it's like to deal with slow hair growth in addition to thin, fine hair (which is not a great combination I might add). Learning to deal with hair that's super fine and slow to grow was very frustrating for me. There were so many styles that I wanted to achieve but couldn't and I was waiting for my hair to grow for so long but it refused. 

Hair vitamins were my saving glory, but finding the right hair vitamin for me wasn't easy. I first started taking Biotin and it really helped my hair grow but the problem was that it started making not just the hair on top of my head grow, but everywhere and fast!

Here is a list of Essential Vitamins recommended by the Women's Health group for stronger, healthier hair growth: 


VITAMIN A
Dosage: 2,000 to 3,000 IU daily
Stimulates sebum production and aids in retaining moisture.  
Warning: Taking more than 25,000 IU daily can be toxic and can could inadvertently cause hair loss.

B-COMPLEX VITAMINS (B2,B5,B6,B9, and B12)
Dosage: 25-50 mg daily
Often referred to as the "beauty vitamins" and every girl's must have!

BETA-CAROTENE
(Think sweet potatoes, kale, carrots & spinach)
Helps to safely convert Vitamin A into your system.

VITAMIN B2
Dosage: 50 mg daily
One of the best vitamins for hair growth due to its many essential functions in the body. Among many things, the ingredient riboflavin is connected to growth and cell respiration.

VITAMIN E
Dosage: 400 IU daily
An antioxidant that makes skin glow and improves scalp circulation by increasing scalp circulation, which stimulates hair growth.
Warning: If you are taking medication for high blood pressure, consult with your doctor before taking Vitamin E supplements.

FOLIC ACID (water soluble form of vitamin B9)
Dosage: 400 mcg daily
Our body does not store folic acid so, we have to consume it every day in order to make sure we have adequate amounts in our system. Folic acid supports healthy red blood cell production and cell regeneration.

VITAMIN C
(also know as "asorbic acid")
Dosage: 800mg daily
Our bodies are unable to produce vitamin C, but it is much needed for many functions of the body and is essential for cell development and tissue growth.

BIOTIN
(Vitamin H)
Dosage: 50 mg 3x's daily
Stimulates hair growth, helps produce keratin and aids in preventing hair loss and graying.

Note: On average, it takes anywhere from 2 to 3 months for vitamins to really get into your system and for you to obtain noticeable results in your hair's condition. That means patience and consistency is vital! Also, be sure to check with your doctor before starting a vitamin program, especially if you have any health concerns.
