The Vitamin A B C to Preventing Hair Loss

Hair loss is a hard pill to swallow. It happens to many of us for many reasons. We feel helpless because the causes are mostly out of our control, whether medical or hereditary.

Wig technology has come a long way in recent years, hairpieces look more natural than ever. Investing in a natural hair wig to suit your style can be a big confidence booster. Knowing you have options is very important.

If you want to focus on your natural hair it might be recommendable to try on a hair loss prevention diet. Eating healthy is about a lot more than weight loss. Taking control of your body’s nutritional intake affects everything from mood and energy to nourishment for your hair. This article is by no means written as a guarantee that your hair will all grow back, but proper nutrition is vital to feeling great in every aspect of our lives – including the wellbeing of our hair – so with that in mind, here are some recommendations as to which vitamins and minerals can make your hair happier.

Vitamin A

Eat it if it’s yellow, orange or green. Vitamin A, or beta-carotene builds up tissue and cells in your body, including hair. This vitamin can be found in fruits and vegetables like carrots, yellow peppers and spinach.

Vitamin B 3 5 6 7 9 and 12

B vitamins work together as a complex. Vitamin B6, technically – pyridoxine is responsible for producing melanin, the pigment that gives your skin, eyes and hair their colour. When combined with vitamins B 12 (riboflavin) and vitamin B9 (folate), these vitamins work to form blood cells. The blood then carries oxygen through the body. A healthy intake of oxygen is essential to healthy hair.

Vitamin C (and E)

Vitamin C produces collagen which keeps your scalp’s blood vessels healthy. Vitamin E increases blood circulation to the scalp and when combined these two vitamins are responsible for healthy hair follicles. Try eating papaya; this superfruit combines both these vitamins.


Meat, fish, eggs, and milk all contain sulphur. Sulphur is said to speed up hair growth. Sulphur is most present in our nails, skin and hair. This mineral is only obtained through diet.

For a healthy mind, body and body of hair, consider carefully your diet, and try to regularly consume the nutrients that your hair relies on to be beautiful, shiny and plentiful.
