in or a supplement for circulation( Maca Powder, iron), then I take B vitamins(Biotin) or zinc before bed, read on to learn what each supplement does for hair growth. Maca
Maca to get the supplements flowing through your blood system take them middle of the day and in the evening. Remember, this is for fast growth, so it’s all about your consistent, daily routine to get your hair to grow. One thing that I do through out the day, which as you know, is really important, is to drink at least 16 to 32 ounces of water. Yes this supplement routine really works, my locs are growing!
Most supplements take a few weeks to produce the effect you want to see. However, if you follow a daily routine, like mine, depending on your hair type, you will start to see the results in two to three weeks. Don't skip a day or two and wonder why you have not seen the results you want. Some vitamins need to be taken every single day, while others like D vitamins may need to be taken every other day. Before taking any supplements, especially vitamin D, always check with your doctor first. Even if you are changing your supplements its a good idea to consult your physician or a nutritionist. Another important tip is to maintain a well-balanced diet which is the key to beautiful, healthy tresses. If you have tried these tips and you still need extra help to kick-start your hair restoration, schedule a consultation with me online. Also if you are having significant hair loss consult your primary care doctor or dermatologist can help you safely determine which hair growth shampoos and supplements would be most appropriate.
Here are six to consider for a full head of luscious locks:
Multivitamins: A multivitamin can help bridge your nutrition gap. One with B-vitamins, zinc and at least 2,000 international units of vitamin D. Both B-vitamins and zinc play a role in hair follicle health, while vitamin D may help make new ones (always consult your physician or nutritionist first before taking vitamin) .
Iron: Iron is important for hair growth and health. Lack of iron also leads to anemia, which can cause hair loss. “If you eat red meat fewer than two or three times a week, after checking with your physician or nutritionist, consider an iron supplement. You know you’ve heard me say how important iron is in the growth and strength of your hair follicles.
Omega-3 fatty acids: Omega-3 naturally occurs in foods such as shellfish and flaxseed, but you can also find it in supplements like fish oil. It’s critical to cell regeneration and is thought to make your scalp and hair healthier.
Biotin: Taking biotin for hair growth may be just what the stylist ordered. And since it’s a water-soluble B-vitamin, any excess will leave your body through urine. Recommended dosage on the bottle is taking 3 to 5 milligrams daily. I also discovered Biotin is good for gut health and depression. I love supplements like these.
Zinc pyrithione: Zinc pyrithione is the active ingredient in some over-the-counter anti-dandruff shampoos. And these shampoos have a hidden perk: “They’ve been shown to grow hair, too,” “This is because we all have some yeast that lives on the scalp. If that yeast grows too much, microscopic inflammation causes our hair to shed. You can use these hair growth shampoos to improve scalp and hair health, even if you don’t have dandruff or flaking.”
Collagen: This is becoming one of my favorite supplements. I use it in powder form and add it to my smoothies in the morning. Collagen helps to strengthen the hair and elasticity and improves it’s overall quality, and you also get the added benefits of Omegas 3 and 6 which are good for hydrating hair. I've been using it for 2 months and my hair is definitely“So incorporate daily collagen supplement can also aid in hair regrowth, as hair health starts from the inside.” Says the dermatologist ”
