Feed your hair a diet rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to prevent hair loss
Hair loss prevention starts with consuming a nutritional diet
Healthy hair growth depends on a diet with sufficient vitamin intake. Where one does not consume enough vitamins, hair that has already begun to thin, will have a tough time maintaining thick hair regrowth. Do not be fooled by the simplicity of this cause, as it is often underestimated with hair loss. Hair By Science understands this reality so encompasses a hair growth supplement to maximise thick regrowth results. The dietary supplement capsules contain all of the hair vitamins needed.
Low Vitamin C
Suffering from dry, brittle hair? You could be low on Vitamin C. Also known as ascorbic acid, it aids synthesis of collagen, a structural fibre that hair follicles, skin and blood vessels need for good health and growth. When taken together, it also boosts absorption of the Nonheme iron, found in plant-based foods
Lack of Protein
Protein powers health and growth, specifically cellular growth, which includes hair cells. So naturally a protein deficiency = less new hair growth.
High Vitamin A
It’s all about balance – so high levels aren’t healthy either. Beta-carotene found in food gets converted to vitamin A. Cell growth needs Vitamin A. Not enough might cause dull, brittle hair and dry skin (dandruff), but too much could cause extreme hair loss. Tip: eat more beta-carotene rich foods instead of Vitamin A supplements to avoid this.
Anaemia caused by low levels of iron can sometimes result in hair loss. Iron helps red blood cells transport oxygen so where there is a deficiency, the cells struggle to function.
Low B Vitamins including Folate, B6, B12
B vitamins help create red blood cells, transporting oxygen and nutrients to all body cells, including scalp and hair follicles. B Vitamin deficiency causes cells to starve, and hair to shed or slow in growth.
A mineral important for tissue growth and repair. Additional benefit: keeps oil glands surrounding hair follicles in good working order. Low Zinc can result in hair loss, slower growth or dandruff.
