Internal issues can often show up as external factors.
This is especially true for my hair loss clients.
Most people believe having the right products can fight hair loss and even stop it in its tracks. Sometimes the right products work, but most of the time products don't work. They either mask or even exacerbate the hair loss.
As a Nurse and Trichologist, I know hair loss is an internal battle! One of the most successful ways to treat hair loss is by proper nutrition.
Did you know?
Your hair requires minerals and vitamins to keep the hair growth cycle working properly. In this article, I’m sharing with you my Top 5 Nutrients to Ingest to Fight Hair Loss.
Try them for one month and then share your results with me!
ONE: Vitamin A - The Scalp Oiler
Vitamin A helps skin glands make an oily substance called sebum. Sebum moisturizes the scalp to keep your hair healthy. The moisturizing from sebum created by Vitamin A also keeps your hair strands moisturized to prevent breakage. This is especially necessary during the dry winter months.
The normal dose of Vitamin A for Women is 900 micrograms per day for men and 700 mcg per day for women. By sticking to this dose, you can expect all of the benefits without any scalp oil problems or hair thinning.
TWO: Vitamin D - The Hair Strengthener
In 2019, studies showed a link between Alopecia and Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D is the main vitamin necessary for healthy bones and growth. Vitamin D also helps to strengthen hair strands, prevent damage and longer-term breakage. Many of the studies in the review found low levels of vitamin D in people with Alopecia Areata.
"A supplement for Vitamin D is helpful but your best defense is eating quality foods high in Vitamin D. " – Abolore RN.
THREE: Vitamin B7 - The Great Biotin
Vitamin B7, also known as Biotin, is the most commonly used vitamin supplement for hair growth. But, this grower also comes with a warning. Most people take more Biotin than what is needed. More doesn't equal better. Too much Biotin can lead to heart palpitations.
However, Biotin when taken correctly can be your best friend in stopping hair shedding. This is what makes Biotin "THE GREAT HAIR FIXER"! As a Trichologist, my client is placed on a dosage amount that will be easily absorbed to get the maximum benefit for your hair's health.
Low levels of vitamin B7, or biotin, can lead to hair loss too.
So, yes, connect with me so we can get you on the right dosage.
FOUR: Vitamin E - The Big Antioxidant
Most people use Vitamin E for their skin. But did you know Vitamin E can help your scalp, especially if you have Chronic Dandruff, Seborrheic Dermatitis, and Scalp Psoriasis? Since Vitamin E "blasts" free radicals that cause bacteria to build it is your great defense against scalp bacteria.
Vitamin E also fights infections of the scalp, helps with inflammation which is a major cause of hair loss for some people.
FIVE: Vitamin C - The Protein Builder in Hair
Vitamin C creates collagen, an increase in popularity protein for hair, nail, and skin elasticity. It’s actually Vitamin C that promotes hair health, reduces hair loss, and improves hair growth. Vitamin C deficiency can also result in dry hair and split ends.
The genetic makeup of hair is 95% protein. Therefore, adequate amounts of Vitamin C are necessary for the growth and strength of newly grown hair. Giving your good Vitamin C at its time of growth is necessary for hair loss recovery long term.
Creating Your Diet for Hair Loss
Hair loss recovery that leads to hair restoration requires you to have a good diet. I cannot stress that enough. Hair loss and growth start within your body.
Many of my clients are placed on a nutrition plan for hair regrowth. Adding more veggies and fruits to your diet will help you feed your hair follicles and start them on the path of being healthy for years to come. I recommend to my client to start replacing one meal a day with something nutritious and full of the necessary vitamins and minerals for hair growth.
