Straight Talk about Hair Vitamins
We have all seen them, vitamin ads usually in the back of a movie magazine that guarantee you will grow longer thicker hair in just 30 days. Often they are accompanied by glowing testimonials declaring, “Now people stop and stare as I walk down the street and ask me what I did to get such beautiful hair”. Wouldn’t it be great if it were that easy?
Vitamins or nutritional supplements will help your hair if you actually have a vitamin deficiency, but in modern societies, vitamin deficiencies are rare. If you eat properly and take a complete multivitamin, (anti-stress formulas contain hair related vitamins.) you will provide all the nutritional support your hair needs for healthy growth. However, it probably will not grow faster or come in any thicker. Companies can make these claims because the government sees nutritional supplements, as a food product, not a drug. As a result, vitamins are not as strictly regulated.
Your hair is sensitive to nutritional needs. If you go on a crash diet for instance, you could notice some hair loss about three months later. There is a three-month delay between the cause and effect because; your hair is still forming deep inside the hair follicle where it is nourished by the dermal papilla. Systemic problems such as, anemia, thyroid problems, infections and normal hormone fluctuations can also affect the way your hair grows. If you are having hair problems, they could be a sign of health problems. If you have any doubts, you should consult your doctor.
Many of the ingredients contained in hair care products do have a positive effect on the hair, so topical nutrition is important. Hair is made of proteins, not dead cells. Proteins and other nutrients in hair care products stay in the hair increasing its strength and luster. The Structural Balance color protective products from TRI are rich in antioxidants.
The vitamins contained in hair care products such as, vitamin C, E, and A are antioxidants Oxygen is a very reactive substance. Though necessary for humans to live, it also does a lot of damage to the cells in the body. That is why it is also important to eat a diet rich in antioxidants. Oxygen can do a lot of damage to hair as well. This happens when hair is heated, as in styling and drying. What antioxidants do is they react with oxygen more easily than hair or body tissue. Therefore, they use up much of the oxygen that would have caused damage and protect the hair.
