Vitamins for Hair Growth

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on Pinterest

Healthy hair starts from the inside out.  If you want to grow long hair faster, vitamins for hair growth are essential.  While we should obtain most of our vitamins from the foods we eat, supplements can help ensure that you get all of the vitamins you need. I always get asked which hair, skin, and nail vitamin is the best.  There are so many options available.  Below is a comparison of 3 of the top rated hair, skin, and nail vitamins.

* Note- Some people (myself included) are very sensitive to large doses of biotin.  While biotin does increase hair growth please be aware of the possible side effects.  I recommend starting with a small dose of biotin or vitamins that contain biotin and slowly increasing to watch how you respond.  If you cannot take biotin, MSM is also proven to help with hair and nail growth.  I have had great results taking MSM.

  1. I have been natural for four years now and I just don’t know what to do with my hair, I’ve been wearing braids

    What can you tell me about being sensitive to biotin. I have been taking it for two months and really have seen a change in my hair and not to the best. Do you think I should stop? I have some dryness and thinness going on. I have not been concern with my in three years. I have been natural for almost ten years except for about three years ago when my former hairdresser talked me into a texturizer and that was a bad mistake. Then I went to a Dominic salon and have been pleased for three years now. I started biotin, b12 and b complex about two months ago and don’t know if I just have over did it or what. Help

      It may be the heat from the Dominican salon. I used to go to one and loved my hair but it definitely thinned under her care.

    Does it have to be Solgar skin,hair and nail’s or could it be another brand

    • naturalhairgrowth101 says:

      These are the only brands I have reviewed at this point. I would suggest checking the ingredients to see if it has similar components and you may get similar results.

    I have been natural for about 4 months. I am still learning my hair. The biggest problem that i am currently having is every time or every other time i comb my hair. I get a comb full of hair. Before combing i soak my hair in pink lotion and still getting the same result.
