Vitamins, Minerals, and Supplements for Hair Loss

  • Published in

Vitamins play a crucial role in the functions of the body. Some have specialized duties serving as chemical messengers, similar to hormones, while others are a part of enzymes termed “co-enzymes” that aid metabolic reactions in the body. When we think about the importance of vitamins, we first want to think about nutrition. “Nutrition is the science of food, the nutrients, and the substances therein, their action, interaction, and balance in relation to health and disease and the process by which the organism ingests, digests, absorbs, transports, utilizes, and excretes food substances” (Reinhard 1998).

The term “vitamin” was derived from a Polish scientist, Casimir Funk, in 1911. The original term vitamin referred to products considered “vital to life” and were originally thought to have a nitrogen-containing component called an amine. It was later determined that not all vitamins contain an amine compound, thus the “e” was dropped from the word (Herrmann, Wolfgang, Obeid, and Rima 2011).

Is Biotin a Miracle Supplement for Hair?

  • Published in

Biotin is a water-soluble B-complex vitamin, that our body, unfortunately, does not store. One has to ingest it daily. There are several natural sources of biotin in foods like eggs, walnuts, peanuts, whole-wheat bread, pork, salmon, soybean, cauliflower, etc. If such foods are not part of the daily diet, one can get biotin through supplements. Most multi-vitamin pills already contain biotin in some amounts.

My hair is colored hair,but my hair is always thick,now am losing hair i feel its becoming thinner.I oil my hair once in a week and keep it for 2 hours and wash it.pls advise me any other remedy for making hair thick and strong,to stop hair fall?

I would like to inform you that some hair dyes are damaging to the hair follicles and cause the hair to actually break. Hair loss in females is usually not evident until the later years (the 40s-50s). There are many different ways to give hair a fuller appearance. Hair products that are all-natural will help and hair products containing anagen stimulators as well. Also, the amount of iron in the blood may cause hair loss in females. Lastly, there is also a chance that the thyroid is not in good condition. These reasons inthick hair addition to stress can cause hair loss for females.

There were many discussions about this issue, I strongly advise you to read them as they will provide you with lots of information:

Why My Hair Stopped Growing?

  • Published in

Over the last year my hair has completely stopped growing. I used to
have very long hair and got it trimmed regularly.
I have had to stop trimming it as it is now only barely to my shoulders. I am afraid to cut any more of it because the length won't grow back. I am female and always had long hair, this is a major worry for me.

It is not unusual to see this sort of problem in someone who has used long-term chemical treatments on their hair. This may cause chemical alopecia (hair loss), or telogen effluvium, with shedding and growth retardation.

Obviously, the best course of action is to cease using the products or to find an alternative. A consultation with a dermatologist or a good hair loss/hair restoration physician is in order, so that a definitive diagnosis may be made. Laboratory studies and/or a scalp biopsy might be needed to reveal the true cause and nature of the condition.
We always recommend using the hair cycle products as they help to accelerate anagen. Hair cycle products are an extraordinarily effective and highly potent blend of DHT inhibitors, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, cell proliferates, anagen stimulators, nitric oxide, precursors, and androgen blockers.

My Hair Is Falling Very Rapidly, What is the Solution?

  • Published in

My hair is falling very rapidly and I want to know any shampoo for treatment. I am 22 years old female, Diabetic

'Hair loss' can be caused by any number of conditions. In fact, losing around 100 hairs a day is a natural part of hair "growth cycle", but at some point, some excessive hair loss could happen. There is a strong chance that women with hair loss have a deficiency of some kind that may be helped through nutrition or supplements. In some cases, these women can be helped before menopause through other means. Such things as low iron and hormones may be causing hair loss. You should check with your doctor for 'anemia', excessive male hormones, 'thyroid' function, rheumatoid diseases, and other medical problems. Hair loss could be caused by medication and stress too. In most cases, it is a temporary situation. Fortunately, medications and 'hair care products can be used to manage hair loss. We suggest you get the test results from your preferred doctor as a starting point.

Why Minoxidil Doesn't Work For Me?

  • Published in

I want to ask about other types of treatment other than Minoxidil I can use. I am class 6 and I have treated my hair with Minoxidil 5% for more than one year and it doesn't give any result except a few fine short hairs

Being a class 6, we recommend a comprehensive program for your maximum 'medical therapy, which includes 'Propecia', 'Rogaine', and Hair Cycle products. 'Propecia prolongs the growth cycle of hair and will slow down your hair loss. 'Rogaine' stimulates the anagen phase and gives strength and thickness to your hairs. 'Hair cycle shampoo' and conditioner are designed to provide the two effects described above with natural ingredients. Hair Cycle hair care products fight hair loss at its root and promote 'hair growth'. The secret is a unique combination of all-natural ingredients that block 'androgen receptors', ease inflammation, decrease the formation of DHTs and free radicals, and encourage the growth of hair of 'nitro oxidants' and 'hair follicle cells. 'Hair cycle' contains 'vitamins', 'saw palmetto', 'biotin, and other' ingredients' to strengthen your hairs and make them shiny and healthy. This therapy will help you to stabilize your hair loss and get maximum benefit for a long time.

Non-Medicinal Shampoo For Hair Growth

  • Published in

I started to use a re-growth treatment, Minoxidil 5% 2 weeks ago. I am class 3 in the Norwood-Hamilton classification. What are the other non-medicinal shampoo I can use? or what else I can used to speed -up the growth of my hair?

You should keep using Minoxidil 5% which stimulates the anagen phase and gives strength and thickness to your hairs and start using Hair Cycle care products. Hair Cycle hair shampoo fights hair loss at its root and promotes hair growth with natural ingredients. Unlike other products that use harsh chemicals, preservatives, lathering agents, and degreasers, Hair Cycle products are formulated to protect the hair and scalp and extend the active growing phase. The secret is a unique combination of all-natural ingredients that block androgen receptors, ease inflammation, decrease the formation of DHTs and free radicals, and encourage the growth of hair of nitro oxidants and hair follicle cells. The hair cycle products contain vitamins, saw palmetto, biotin, and others ingredients to strengthen your hair and make it shiny and healthy. This therapy will help you to stabilize your hair loss. Later on, you can consider taking Propecia to get a maximum benefit for a long time.

You could consider using Rogaine Foam 5% which does not contain alcohol. It does evaporate right away without the grease effects.

We also recommend a well-balanced diet and vitamins that are essential not only to prevent hair loss but also to promote healthy hair. Good nutrition is vital to healthy hair growth, just as it's essential to overall good health. Although your body needs a variety of vitamins and minerals to maintain proper body functions, there are several that are specific to hair growth and health such as the B vitamins, especially B5 Vitamin C and E, biotin, and Zink. It is important to check with your doctor before starting a vitamin program, especially if you have health concerns.

What is the Cause of my Hair Loss?

  • Published in

Hi, I am 20 years old and am a very healthy, sporty person. About 2 years ago I noticed my hair was thinning out and on the pillow in the morning for example. I could see hairs which were of a noticeable amount. Recently, the problem has become worse, styling my hair, showering, sleeping, and combing my hands through my hair, all result in hairs falling on the floor or being left in my hand. I have been to the doctor about this problem, had blood tests for thyroid problems and all came back negative (sadly I wanted it to be positive so there was something to cure). I am really worried. What can I do? Surely there is medication or something to restart or help with hair growth, as my hair is gradually becoming thinner and thinner, in the shower, when I look in the mirror, it really scares me as the wet hair shows how thin areas are.

Hair loss can be caused by any number of conditions. If you already had a blood test that came back negative, it could be male pattern baldness. Even when it is a permanent situation, existing medications and hair care products could be used to slow the hair loss process. It could be advised to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist or hair specialist for an evaluation. We recommend Minoxidil 5% for male pattern baldness because it stimulates the anagen phase and gives strength and thickness to your hair and Hair Cycle care products. You could consider using Rogaine Foam 5% which does not contain alcohol. It does evaporate right away without the grease effects. You can use it twice per day.
