Vitamins for faster hair growth

No matter what you’ve heard before, having a hair that grows fast is determined by the health of the follicle. If you want a shiny, healthy hair, you have to pay attention to your scalp, and the nutrients that it needs. Here are the best vitamins for faster hair growth:

Vitamin A

It is an essential vitamin for hair growth, because it affects the genes that control the process 
that carries amino acids to the hair follicle, which is where healthy hair growth begins. Add more spinach, broccoli, mango and melon into your diet to supplement your vitamin A need.

 

 

Vitamin B

It delivers the nutrients that the hair needs in order to grow stronger, in the early stages. Salmon, shrimp, almonds and cereals are a good source of vitamin B.

 

Vitamin C

It is very important in regulating the hair sebum, and keeping it hydrated. Vitamin C stops the hair from drying out and splitting, and helps hair grow faster. You will find it in broccoli, red pepper, parsley and lemon.

 

Selenium 



Look for whole grains, sunflower seeds and seafood. They contain selenium, a mineral that fights free radicals and toxins that can cause damage to your hair. It also works to help metabolize the other vitamins in your diet.
