Do vitamins really help hair growth?
To date, no clinical studies show that hair vitamins and supplements promote hair growth, prevent hair loss, or improve other facets of healthy hair such as dryness, shine, and thickness. In rare cases in which poor hair health is caused by nutrient deficiencies, taking supplements may improve hair quality.
How long does it take vitamins to grow hair?
Taking hair growth supplements does not produce results overnight; it usually takes a long time (one to five years) to see results. Normally, hair grows only half an inch a month, so even after taking supplements, it would take five to six years for a new strand of hair to reach shoulder length.
Do any hair growth products work?
Right now, there isn’t any reliable scientific data showing that they have any synergistic effects with other hair loss treatments. While laser combs, helmets and other products could potentially be effective for hair growth and preventing hair loss, the scientific evidence just isn’t there yet.
Does vitamin C help hair growth?
Vitamin C benefits for your hair are from a necessary property within the vitamin that creates the protein, known by the more popular term, collagen. Vitamin C promotes hair health, reduces hair loss and improves hair growth.
