The right supplements help you on your journey to healthy, manageable hair
With the push toward going natural, many women are focusing on external products to help manage their hair. That’s all well and good, but we know beauty is more than skin deep. It’s important to be aware that what goes into your body is just as important as what goes on it. Finding the right supplements to aid in your journey to healthy, manageable hair is crucial, and nothing is more helpful than biotin. Biotin, a vitamin, can help combat numerous hair issues—from having fried yourself frizzy with heat styling products to hair loss due to stress or prescription medications. Also note a weakened hair condition is often a sign of other problems going on internally; it’s only natural that any efforts made to remedy the issue start there.
Using biotin in supplement form helps improve growth and overall condition of the hair follicle. It’s available in pill form, in addition to being present in certain foods such as egg yolks, cheeses, liver and yeast. When biotin is worked into the diet or taken in pill form and combined with another hair care aid, such as MSM (methylsufonylmethane) or flaxseed oil supplements, the benefits are increased twofold.
But be wary of any shampoos marketed as miracle hair growth solutions because they contain biotin. Topical biotin hasn’t been proved to affect hair growth nearly as much as the supplements have. Additionally, increasing vegetable and fruit intake, getting more aerobic exercise and investing in an organic shampoo without sulfates can go a long way toward helping you meet your hair growth goals.
Try Nature’s Bounty, one of the most trusted brands of biotin. It’s available in 5,000 microgram softgels, a nice midway point between other dosage options (1,000 mcg for those simply trying it out and 10,000 mcg for those who want maximum hair growth—fast!).
