After a few months of impressive results, I figured out hair supplements needed to be a part of my flat hair solution.
However, you can also take supplements simply to nourish your hair and keep it healthy.
How are hair supplements different from other vitamin and mineral supplements?
Supplements work to encourage healthy hair growth and repair from inside. Hair supplements typically come in tablet form, but sometimes come in the form of powders.
Hair supplements contain a blend of nutrients that encourage and promote thicker and fuller hair. These include:
Biotin, which strengthens and thickens the hair shafts
Marine proteins to promote healthy hair growth
Iron and zinc to tackle deficiencies that are a common cause of weak hair
Flaxseed to fight male pattern balding
Hair supplements are formulated differently for men and women to tackle the varying causes of thinning. It's important to choose the correct supplements for you in order to maximise the benefits.
How quickly can I expect to see results?
Taking hair supplements is a long-term commitment, and you can’t expect to see results overnight. Your hair’s natural growth cycle plays a role in this process, but it will be between 3 and 6 months before new growth emerges.
