B well – The Importance of B Vitamins for Healthy Hair Growth

B vitamins for healthy hair growth

I can vividly remember my mom reminding me to take my Flintstones Chewable vitamins every morning. I think we all grew up hearing our parents talk about the importance of vitamins, but what do they really do? Vitamins and minerals boost the immune system, support normal growth and development, and help all cells and organs do their jobs; your follicles among them. Just like every cell in the body, hair follicles are alive and need support of vitamins to keep them healthy.

B vitamins, in particular are essential for creating the structure of hair, providing nutrition for hair follicles, reducing stress, preventing toxicity and providing essential oxygen to cells. B vitamins are commonly recognized as a group and often work in synergy in the body, but each of the B vitamins performs a unique and important function. This vitamin group includes: B1, B2, B3 (niacin), B5, B6, B7 (biotin), B9, and B12.

Energy – B1/Thiamine & B7/Biotin

Vitamin B1 and B7 (also known as thiamine and biotin, respectively) help break down food into energy. If these vitamins are deficient, the body conserves energy by diverting it to functions that are most vital for survival. This means that organs like your heart and lungs would be prioritized over hair follicles and hair production. By providing your body with the ability to create more energy, you are enabling it to do other tasks, like making sure your hair is growing healthy and strong.

Structure – B2

Hair is made out of two proteins – keratin and collagen. Structurally, it’s like a beaded necklace, where the string is made out of collagen that threads or binds keratin “beads” together. Following this analogy, B2 helps create the energy required to thread the string through the beads, creating a bond between the two proteins. Without B2, hair strands could not be built properly and hair would appear dry and brittle.

Nutrition – B3/Niacin

An essential part of hair health is making sure follicles receive the proper nutrition. A ‘starving’ follicle produces little or no hair. B3 helps feed follicles because it is a natural vasodilator (that’s a fancy word for dilating blood vessels), thereby increasing the amount of nutrients that can be delivered to the hair follicle. Imagine a traffic-heavy highway. More cars – or in this case, nutrients – can travel if more lanes are added. When follicles are well-nourished, they’re able to grow hair properly.

Stress – B5 & B9

When we are stressed long term – like so many of us are! – our adrenals go into over drive, releasing excess amounts of cortisol (aka stress hormone). This can have a negative effect on the body and the hair follicles. B5 and B9 help regulate cortisol levels, reducing stress on the follicles and encouraging healthy growth.

B vitamins and hair growth
Hair follicles are alive, and just like the rest of our body, they need the right nutrients and vitamins to stay healthy.

Toxicity – B6

It might be strange to think about, but liver function is actually directly tied to hair health. How? The liver acts as our main detoxifying organ. It breaks down toxic substances we regularly come into contact with; like mercury, pollutants and food preservatives. If these toxic substances build up, it can affect hair growth. Vitamin B6 supports healthy liver function, so it can detoxify our bodies and reduce hair-damaging mechanisms.

 

Circulation – B12

Red blood cells bring oxygen to every cell in our bodies. Follicle cells, like all cells, need a constant supply of oxygen to build the structure of hair. B12 is a vitamin that is essential for red blood cell production. Without this vitamin, we are unable to circulate oxygen properly to our follicles so they can grow hair.

Summary

B vitamins are not only essential to overall wellness, they are necessary for optimal hair health. B vitamins provide energy, structure, and nutrition to the hair follicle. They are also essential in rebalancing the aftermath of stress, toxicity, and providing essential oxygen to follicle cells. In an effort to help you meet your hair goals, we’ve made our very own B-Booster formula – specifically designed to augment your daily Nutrafol routine.

Hair growth and you – this is what you can do

Your hair is one of your best accessories – that is something that Nutrafol believes in. So follow these hair growth tips to keep it that way.

Hair growth 101

Choose a good hairbrush

It all starts with the hairbrush. And the best hairbrush that you can choose for hair growth, is a boar bristle brush. When using a boar bristle brush, your hair gets conditioned with every stroke. Because boar hair is similar to human hair, a boar bristle brush is gentle on the scalp and hair follicles. Boar bristles also help distribute the scalp’s natural oils throughout the shaft of your hair, all the way down to the split ends.

Do not shampoo with every wash

According to NBC, Europeans and Australians have a more lax attitude toward shampooing, but in the U.S., the thought of going more than 48 hours without shampoo makes many squirm. However, skipping your daily shampoo might help you in your hair growth, according to the mentioned report. As Nutrafol wrote in another piece, shampoo tends to cleanse your hair by stripping away natural necessary oils and when this happens the body’s response is to overproduce oil. When you over-shampoo, your hair is over-secreting oil in order to survive, says Lorraine Massey, co-owner of Devachan Salon in New York. When you balance out your scalp’s oils, you’re left with shiny, healthy hair, which appears longer and more luxurious, she continues.

Hair growth
Fruity fruits and green greens are just what the hair doctor ordered.

Choose a pillowcase that is not made out of cotton

If you are sleeping on a cotton pillowcase you might consider swapping it for a satin or silk one. This will nourish your hair even when you are sleeping. Cotton absorbs moisture, while silk retains it. So when lying on a silk or satin pillowcase, the oils from your strands are maintained rather than soaked up. Which will leave your hair nourished rather than dry.

No need to rinse your hair with cold water

You might have heard that a cold rinse is actually good for hair growth – well, not really. Rinsing with cold water can constrict the blood capillaries in your scalp. As these capillaries carry vital nutrients to the hair follicles, in theory, it may actually be harmful to hair growth, Anabel Kingsley of the Philip Kingsley Trichological Clinic says.

Use supplements and eat well

Yes, it might sound like the oldest story in the book but supplements can be important for your hair growth. Taking some over-the-counter vitamins every day that contain antioxidant blends and vitamin B derivatives boost strands. Taking supplements containing the building blocks for healthy hair on a regular basis can speed things up for you. But besides supplements, you should also maintain a healthy diet. With every meal you have make sure to include tons of greens and fresh fruits. Try starting your day with a smoothie that contains all those vegetables and fruits you need to eat every day. It is easy to make, healthy and perfect on the go if you are short on time.

These are the juices that will help you further hair growth

hair growth

As we celebrate warmer and longer days, there is no better way to cool down than with a delicious juice. Whether you are choosing to drink the juice or apply it to your hair, this summer you should try at least one of these juices. Not only is this good for your health, but it also has a major impact on your hair. And on your hair growth. So keep an eye on these. And while you are at it, why not take the juice with some hair supplements as well? Nutrafol’s supplements are natural all the way. 

Aloe vera juice

Aloe vera juice helps you prevent hair loss. How you may wonder? The vitamins present in aloe vera helps to make the hair strong and less prone to breakage. And the enzymes present in this juice helps to nourish and moisturize the scalp. Aloe vera also helps you to get rid of dandruff and itchy scalp. But do not only drink it – apply it to the hair as well. You will get more lustrous and softer hair.

Kiwi juice

Enriched with vitamin E, kiwi juice will make your hair grow faster, but make sure to apply it only from time to time. Kiwi juice enhances the immune system, and a strong immune system minimizes hair fall. Kiwi juice helps in cleaning your hair and should, to get the best results, be diluted before application to reduce its acidity.

 

Onion juice

It might not be the best-smelling juice to apply on to your hair, but onion juice does enhance growth and prevents the appearance of white hair. Onions provide high concentrations of sulfur, which provides a proper nourishment and flow to the follicles. And nourished follicles will make your hair grow faster.

Spinach juice

Spinach as we know it, is highly enriched with various minerals, vitamins and iron. And this is not only beneficial for your skin, but also for your hair. So if you have an itchy scalp or if your hair is starting to thin, try some spinach juice. Spinach is highly concentrated with vitamin B which restores shine and promotes growth.

Garlic juice

Another not so good-smelling juice to apply, but a treatment that has been used for longer than anyone can remember. Garlic juice helps in restoring the quality of the hair and supplies nourishment to the follicles. When applied, it increases the flow of blood towards the scalp. Your hair will have improved lustre and feel smoother.

hair growth
Choose one of these healthy juices for better hair growth. Drink it or apply it to your hair directly – a real vitamin bomb.

Cucumber juice

Drink a glass every day for healthier hair. Not only does cucumber help hair growth but it also improves the quality of your hair. The enzymes help in preventing the loss of hair and enhances the circulation of hemoglobin to the cells and the follicles of the hair.

Coriander juice

Cilantro, or coriander as it is also called, helps in enhancing hair growth and fights against hair fall. If you are not a big coriander fan, you can just add a little in any other drink. Or if you do not want to drink it, crush the leaves and make a paste out of it. The paste should be applied for an hour and then washed off with cold water.

Carrot juice

We have all heard the benefits of carrots and how they are enriched with beta-carotene. But did you know that this same beta-carotene also provides lustre and color to the hair? The follicles of the hair tend to strengthen and it restores the quality of hair. This vitamin C enriched vegetable also helps in providing nourishment towards the scalp.

5 Best Vitamins For Longer Hair That Will Make Your Life Easier

best vitamins

Are you tired of not knowing which the best vitamins are for growing long hair? Do you dream of having luscious locks but struggle every time you try to grow even an inch? Does the frustration of split ends and breakage make you want to shave it all off? Hold your horses, there’s no need to be dramatic. Read our list, and then make the decision if you want to shave it off – or give it another chance.

Vitamin A: one of the best vitamins?

Vitamin A is a vitamin that falls into the category of best vitamins for healthy hair, and it is necessary for proper cell growth. It is also a vitamin that helps produce sebum in the scalp, which helps prevent hair from drying out and breaking. Good foods sources of vitamin A are carrots, melons, and dark leafy greens. Symptoms of vitamin A deficiency include vision and skin problems. But make sure to not take too much vitamin A supplements, as it can be counterproductive to your hair growth.

B Vitamins

These are often referred to as the vitamin B complex, which includes all eight B vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12. This complex plays a huge role in keeping us healthy. B vitamins affect our energy, metabolism, nerves, muscles, skin, nails and hair. The vitamin B complex promotes cell growth and cell division, which are important for healthy hair growth. If you have a B vitamin deficiency, you will feel tired, bruise easily and your hair will not grow as fast as usual. The best way to get all the B vitamins your system needs is through the foods you eat, such as meats, eggs, nuts, grains and vegetables.

Vitamin C

We know that vitamin C can help us boost our immunity, but what many people do not know is that vitamin C also help strengthen our hair. That is because vitamin C helps the body produce collagen, a vital protein for healthy hair, skin, and nails. Vitamin C is considered being an antioxidant that fights free radicals, which damage body tissue. These free radicals have been known to damage hair and make it weak and brittle. So if you experience your hair breaking a lot or shedding, it may be due to vitamin C deficiency.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin. One way to boost your vitamin D levels is to spend some time outside in the sun. And you do not need crazy amounts of it either – 15 to 20 minutes per day is enough. This is not difficult during the warm summer days, but may become slightly more difficult during the winter. That is where supplements and food comes into the picture. Some vitamin D rich foods include fatty fish like salmon and tuna, eggs, mushrooms and milk.

best vitamins
Make sure to include some vitamin D rich food in your nutrition. These nutrients are needed to keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E may be the most overlooked vitamin, but it is in fact a very important one. It is an antioxidant that repairs and builds tissue, which is essential for healthy hair growth. Eat vitamin E rich foods such as almonds, seeds, avocado, and broccoli. Applying it to your scalp increases blood circulation, boosts oxygen supply and repairs damaged hair follicles. So you may want to start massaging your scalp at least twice a week with vitamin E oil to support hair growth.

 

 

Hair Trends of 2017 That Might Make You Want To Change Your Hairstyle

Hair Trends 2017

New season, new you. Or at least new hair-do. It’s no secret that hair trends come and go – but these five are here to stay, at least for this season. Here are the hair trends of 2017 to be on the lookout for!

Super Sleek as one of the Hair Trends of 2017

It’s time to take the flat iron for a spin again – straight and shiny hair is one of the biggest hair trends in 2017. But this style only works if your hair looks healthy – so make sure to keep it moisturized and nurture it with the right products, vitamins and supplements.

The High Ponytail

Slick your hair up, as high as you can. The high ponytail is known for adding both elegance and ease to whoever pulls it off. You can either wear it stick-straight or in a more rumpled texture.

Flat Waves

Do not mix this trend up with casual beachy waves, because these beauties are made with a flat iron. Waves created with a straightener are more subtle and give a little less glam impression – and this season they’re hotter than hot. Mist a heat protectant through your hair before touching it with a straightener to help your hair stay in good shape longer.

Hair Trends 2017

 

2016 was a good year for cutting bangs and if there ever was a hit, this was it. Don’t fret – those bangs will eventually grow out. In 2017, we’ll see the beautiful results of that. The grown-out bang is best worn with hair that hits just past the shoulders. Split it down the middle and you’ll be a trendsetter among your friends.

The majestic hair flip

Sometimes you don’t have to go big or go home – the hair flip has proven that from time to time. Not only is this hairstyle the easiest one to copy but it also creates tons of volume as a result. Just flip you hair from one side to the other and you’re ready to go!

How to Start Your Own Hair Health Program

Hair Regrowth

Often, we expect men to go bald or have thinning hair as they age, but women are often shocked and embarrassed to find the same happening to them. Because so much of a woman’s identity comes from her hair, women often look for what are often advertised as hair regrowth programs. You can find a lot of options and online advertising, but many of them have found to be ineffective or incredibly overpriced. Because of this, we recommend starting your own hair health program. Here’s how.

Multi-Targeting Hair Health Programs

For hair loss or thinning, there are often multiple causes and therefore multiple possible resolutions. Don’t attempt to just find one solution and throw everything you have into that; try putting your eggs in different baskets. Here are a few things you can try:

Minoxidil

Minoxidil: This is a product, most commonly referred to as Rogaine, which helps stimulate hair follicles to promote growth. You can pick up a 2% solution of the product and try it out for at least 4 to 6 months.

Laser Hair Therapy

You may have heard of laser hair removal. But did you know that there are low light lasers that can help stimulate hair growth? Look into this at local salons or even in handheld home versions that you can use daily.

The Right Shampoo

There are many, many reviews out there for recommended shampoo that can prevent and reverse hair loss. It’s recommended that you at least give up shampoo with high sulfates and parabens, as these can agitate your scalp and cause damage. Don’t be afraid to try a few hair growth shampoos out; you might have to try a few before you find your favorite.

Take Supplements

You know how prenatal vitamins help pregnant women’s hair and nails grow? There are plenty of supplements that combine some of the same vitamins and minerals that can help you support and maintain healthier hair. A supplement that has Niacin, Biotin, Zinc, vitamins A, B, and C, boosts collagen, and supports amino acid metabolism is a great option depending on your personal needs.

Eat Well

The real clincher for most women on a path to regenerate hair growth is eating a proper, balanced diet. We often underestimate the power that food has over our bodies. Simply introducing more fruits and veggies, less red meat (especially for women), as well as healthy fats like avocado, nuts, and fish can help hair grow faster and healthier than ever before. It’s also important to drink more water, as our bodies contain 80% of it, dehydration is shown in our hair. You can even use healthy foods directly on your hair as an additional way to reap the benefits of their vitamins and nutrients!

Hair Regrowth
Using the right shampoo, supplements and eating well are three things you can do when you start your own hair health program.

Visit a Hair Loss Specialist or Dermatologist

If you feel like you’ve tried everything in this do-it-yourself program and you’re still not seeing results, you should go see a specialist. If you see a hair loss specialist, they may recommend hair implants (or plugs), or may provide over-the-counter medicines to help balance out hormones, thyroid, etc. Knowing the state of your health and options that can be medically provided can often be the best hair health program out there.

 

 

What does Aloe Vera do to your hairdo

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a type of succulent which grows wild in different tropical places around the world. We now grow aloe vera for numerous medicinal and decorative purposes and it has showed great success in transitioning to other environments. The earliest references can be traced back to ancient Egypt, where it was known as a plant of immortality. Traditionally, aloe vera has been used to treat a variety of conditions, and is now found in the ingredients of many hair and skin care products.

Ways that aloe vera can help combat hair loss

Moisturizing: Aloe vera has enzymes which promote cell regeneration. When used as a conditioner, it makes hair appear shiny and smooth. This moisturizing effect is also experienced on the skin of the scalp and can help promote a healthy environment for hair follicles. The moisturizing properties of aloe vera help reduce hair breakage and improves the overall appearance and health of hair.

Supports healthy hair growth: The lifecycle of hair occurs in 3 stages; anagen, catagen, and telogen. The anagen phase is when active growth occurs. During this phase, the cells at the root of the hair are dividing rapidly and hair growth averages about 1 centimeter per month. This length of the phase is genetically determined, but it lasts for between 2-7 years. After this, hair growth stops and then begins to shed due to an internal signal. Aloe vera can help improve the health of the scalp and lengthen the growth phase of hair.

Cleansing: When the pores on the scalp are not cleaned thoroughly, they can become clogged. The dirt and oil that are clogging the pores can increase the chances of the skin of the scalp becoming infected. Aloe vera is an excellent cleansing agent that effectively removes these impurities. This allows the hair to push easily through the scalp, which can improve hair density and minimize the appearance of hair loss.

 

Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera moisturizes, can help stimulate hair growth and cleans the scalp – leaving the hair smooth and shiny.

Using Aloe Vera

Aloe plants are easy to grow. Because of this, many people decide to grow their plants and apply the gel directly to their scalp. Depending on how often one wishes to apply it to their scalp, this can require a significant commitment of time and energy in growing and harvesting the plant.

Due to this, many companies now include aloe gel in their hair care products. Others sell the gel of the plant in an easy to dispense container.

Aloe vera can help support hair growth and minimize hair loss in a number of ways. There are many delivery methods available to help individuals integrate aloe vera into their hair care routine. Choosing the right one for your hair is a matter of personal preference.

The Role of Vitamin D in Hair Loss and Overall Hair Health

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin which is naturally produced in the body when sunrays convert the skin’s chemicals into Vitamin D. The vitamin is very important for the health of bones, muscles, teeth and hair, and it also plays its role in the prevention of different diseases, some of which are Diabetes, Hypertension, and Stroke. Little to no sun exposure can lead to Vitamin D deficiency.

Effect of Vitamin D on Hair Loss

There are many diseases such as; thyroid dysfunction, diabetes, and lupus, which can increase hair loss. Sufficient amounts of Vitamin D play an important role in preventing these diseases, which in turn reduces hair loss. If you lack the vitamin, it may lead to hair shedding. Hair shedding is normal if a person sheds about 100 hairs per day. However, if a person sheds 200 to 300 hairs per day, this could indicate a potential medical disorder.

Vitamin D
Fish is a great source of Vitamin D, especially salmon. Very nutritious and easy to cook.

Daily Dietary Intake and Vitamin D Supplementation

The daily dietary intake should be up to 15mcg or 600 IU per day. Foods with great amounts of the vitamin include; blue fish, catfish, cod liver oil, egg yolk, and milk.
Other good sources are mushrooms, oysters, salmon, shrimp, tuna, and sardines. Fish is an excellent source because it contains omega-3 which is part of the Vitamin D production process. If the dietary intake and sun exposure is not enough to cover the vitamin deficiency, then supplements may be able to help. However, it is important not to consume more than the recommended dose as it can lead to several side effects including loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, constipation, increased heart beat, muscular weakness, and constipation.

The Role of Cayenne Peppers in Hair Growth

Cayenne Peppers

Some natural products play an extremely beneficial role in promoting healthy hair growth and hair regeneration. Cayenne peppers or Capsicum Annuum is one of these products. It has advantageous effects on our body’s respiratory, digestive, and circulatory system, along with aiding hair growth.
Cayenne pepper contains many unique elements which can influence the hair follicles, skin cells, and blood circulation. Let’s take a look at the different elements of cayenne pepper and how they can affect hair growth in an individual.

Different Elements of Cayenne Peppers and Their Role in Hair Growth and Hair Regeneration

The most important element in cayenne peppers is Capsaicin which produces a tingling sensation on the skin. It stimulates the skin cells which increases the overall metabolic process of the skin on a cellular level. Due to intensive metabolism, blood rushes to the skin of the scalp and the hair follicles receive sufficient nutrition and oxygen content from the blood flow which greatly promotes hair growth. Also, Capsaicin stimulates the dead skin cells of the scalp which leads to new hair follicle production.

Different Vitamins of Cayenne Peppers

Cayenne pepper also contains different vitamins such as Vitamin A, C and Vitamin B6. All these vitamins play a vital role in hair health and hair growth. Vitamin C is also a potent antioxidant which stops the formation of harmful free radicals in the body which damage the hair follicles. Meanwhile, Vitamin A causes regeneration of damaged cells of the scalp and Vitamin B6 reduces massive hair shedding and strengthens hair follicles in an individual.

 Cayenne Peppers
Using Cayenne Peppers as a supplement can help aid in healthier hair growth

Cayenne pepper is being used as an oil-based and alcohol-based hair tonic to promote healthy hair growth. It can also help to decrease hair loss in patients suffering from hair diseases such as Alopecia Areata.
In addition to topical preparations, oral supplements of cayenne pepper can also be used to stimulate a healthy environment for hair to grow in. The usual recommended dose of oral cayenne pepper is about 400 to 475mg/day. However, this dose can vary depending upon the health conditions of each individual, so it’s always best to consult with your doctor before beginning a new supplement.

 

 

How to Grow Hair Faster and Longer: 12 Simple Tips

Grow hair faster

Whether you’re a man or woman, odds are you think about how your hair looks. Especially if you’re a woman, you may want your hair to be longer now. Our hair grows a quarter of an inch a month, but sometimes we don’t see that length, or we wish for  it to grow faster.  Waiting for hair to grow out is no simple feat. If you’re feeling impatient and want to speed your hair growth process along, follow these 12 simple ideas to help get your hair the length you want it as fast as possible.

1. Stop cutting it.

Many people think that frequent trimming helps grow hair faster and longer. The only time this actually works is if your hair is incredibly damaged at the ends. If so, make sure you cut off all of the damaged length (not just half an inch). The healthier the ends, the less it breaks off.

2. Stop styling it.

Stop adding chemicals to the mix, and stop heating it and pulling it just to make it look nice. A little natural product is OK, but constantly playing with it will just break it.

3. Eat a well-balanced diet.

Food is so closely connected to skin and hair health. Make sure you’re eating your veggies and fruits, Omega 3 fatty acids in nuts and fish, and even take supplements like fish oil or multivitamins to make sure your getting all of the essential nutrients you need. Remove acidic or processed foods, and avoid red meat.

4. Wash less.

If you have oily hair, this may seem very unappealing, but in reality many shampoos strip your hair of the natural oils it needs to remain healthy. Try shampooing less often and your hair’s oils will naturally balance out.

5. Condition every time to grow hair faster.

When you shower, but don’t shampoo, make sure you still apply conditioner. This keeps your ends healthy, letting your hair grow.

6. Rinse with cold water.

This sounds uncomfortable, but by rinsing with cold water, you can help close your follicles to protect from hair loss and yanking.

7. Massage your scalp.

Don’t confuse a massage with a harsh itching. That may feel good, but will rip hair from the follicles. Gently massage your scalp without pulling hair to help stimulate follicle growth.

8. Mask it.

There are tons of recipes for hair masks, including castor and coconut oil, keratin oils, egg masks, apple cider vinegar rinses, etc. Try whatever you want, but find something that works and use it once a week. Your hair should feel heavier and look shinier – a good sign that your concoction is working.

9. Avoid stress.

Of course, this is next to impossible for most of us, but avoiding as much stress as possible can help your hair grow healthier. You really do lose hair when your cortisol levels rise.

10. Be gentle.

Don’t play with your hair a lot (flipping it over your shoulder, etc.), and don’t brush it roughly when you get out of the shower. Avoid putting it up in that towel as well!

11. Drink more water.

We are made up of 80% water, and without that our body doesn’t produce as well as it needs to. This includes hair production!

Grow hair faster
Water is not only good for your body but also for your hair – remember to stay hydrated!

12. Supplement.

There are tons of supplements that support healthy hair growth on the market – check them out! They can help ensure your hair gets all the essential vitamins and nutrients it needs to stay healthy.
