7 Vitamins to Promote Healthy Hair Growth

 

Vitamins play an integral part in the health of our bodies, including our hair. Vitamins are organic compounds that our bodies need in small quantities to grow and develop naturally. They are nutrients we must get from our food, because our bodies cannot make enough of them or at all. Despite the fact we hear about them so much, our bodies need just small amounts of them. Harvard School of Public Health states there are 13 compounds classified as vitamins and vitamins A, D, E, and K are fat-soluble and tend to accumulate in the body. Vitamin C and eight B vitamins (biotin, folate, niacin, pantothenic acid, riboflavin, thiamin, vitamins B6 and B12 dissolve in water so excess amounts are excreted).
 
2 types of vitamins
According to Medical News Today, vitamins are fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins, which determine how they respond to your body. Fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the fat tissues of our bodies and are easier to store than water-soluble. They can stay in the body for days or months. Water-soluble vitamins are not stored in the body long, as they need to be replaced more often than fat-soluble ones.

Alicia from Guyana is Naturally Glam!


Hey! I'm Alicia from Guyana. I am a mother, a wife, a sister, and a natural hair junky. If I see a total stranger rocking her natural hair, I'm never shy to compliment her and smile.
Were you a transitioner or a Big Chopper? What was your journey like?
I transitioned in 2013. Everyone said that I was going to have to do the big chop; I didn't. Being hard nosed as I am, I think every one is different and what worked for them might not for me. It's all about knowing yourself and knowing what's gonna work for you.
