Vitamin A & Biotin
Increasing your vitamin A and biotin intake maintains the health of your hair and scalp. Biotin, or vitamin B7, helps your cells grow rapidly, which helps thicken your hair. Biotin deficiency leads to hair loss, so make sure you are getting around 300 mcg (micrograms) per day. Vitamin A is useful for your cell health overall as it eliminates free radical damage. It is an antioxidant and it promotes healthy cell growth, which is especially helpful in your scalp, which needs healthy blood flow for the hair follicles to grow thick, healthy hair. Finding a supplement that contains both of these vitamins should be easy. You can check out sites like Mommy Authority which provide expert reviews of different supplements, including ones for hair growth. You can compare price and ingredients to pick the best supplement for you.
Do you usually order an egg-white omelet? Well, maybe that is making your hair thinner as egg whites block your retention of biotin! However, egg yolks are rich in biotin, as well as vitamin D, which is good for your bones. Look for eggs fortified with omega-3 to support healthy skin and nails, and as long as you’re not eating too many egg whites, eggs can definitely be beneficial to your hair.
The beer shampoos on the market today aren’t so popular, but they have shown positive results. The barley and hops in beer has essential nutrients to maintain and grow healthy hair. Some experts say that the alcohol content in beer gives your hair a healthy glow. Others claim that you should boil the beer to limit its alcoholic content, which may dry out your hair, and then apply it. There are also products that provide beer in a spray bottle to use it as a conditioner, instead of a shampoo. Most shampoos detail that you put beer in after your shampoo, let it sit for a couple of minutes, and then rinse your hair with cold water. Then, you can follow this step by applying a nice-smelling conditioner, so your hair won’t smell unpleasant and sour all day.
Don’t think that you have to only shower now with freezing cold water. You just need to turn the water down the for a minute or so at the end of your shower to avoid splintering your hair with extreme heat. You also should cool down your hair after using a blowdryer, which helps avoid further split ends and seals in the product you’ve put in your hair to keep your hair straight and glossy for the rest of the day.
