6 Supplements for Healthy Hair


So you’ve noticed that your hair could use a little extra TLC. Maybe your tresses are sparse, fall flat, or it’s taking forever to grow out your current style. Whatever your worry, supplements designed with your mane in mind may be more useful than you think.

“Hair growth supplements are helpful for anyone who is experiencing hair loss, hair thinning, or for those who just want thicker or longer hair,” says Dendy Engelman, MD, board-certified dermatologic surgeon at Medical Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery in New York City.

When you take an oral supplement, it is absorbed in the bloodstream where it nourishes all cells, including your hair follicles. “Hair thrives on protein, iron, zinc, and vitamin B12, which support hair structure and growth and moisturize the scalp, among other functions. If you are not getting enough nutrients from your diet, supplements can increase low levels,” says Dr. Engelman.

However, if you’ve ever tried to shop for a hair supplement, you know there are tons of bottles to wade through. “That’s why it’s best to read labels and check for ingredients we really want,” says dermatologist Debra Jaliman, MD, author of Skin Rules. Dietary supplements aren’t regulated the same way as drugs are by the FDA, so it’s important to scan the ingredients carefully. And, you should always talk to your doctor before taking one to ensure it won’t interact with any medications you’re taking.

Now that you have the basics down, here are six stellar options that will help you grow healthy, shiny locks.

Hair Goals ⭐️

The first few days in the new year is often filled with excitement and optimism, as many people, Yes I have been one, are convinced that the new year will solve all the problems that they’ve had in previous years.

Unfortunately, a few weeks after January 1st, these same people will start to realize that nothing is changing, they will then start to return to their “old ways” of doing things. And when December rolls in, they will now ask themselves where the time went?

So, if you don’t want to spend a whole year on wasted efforts and you actually want to achieve your hair goals this year, here are a few suggestions to get you there:

  • Assess Your Hair & Your Current Hair Care Practices The first thing you MUST do when setting hair goals is assess your hair. Is your hair drier than normal? Is it breaking m ore than it should be? What products are you using? What works, and what’s not working for your hair? It’s important to assess the current state of your hair and your current hair care practices so you can flesh out what’s worked for your hair, what to eliminate, wash day frequency, etc… This way, you’re able to figure out what you’re end goal is. Whether it’s more length retention, or more moisture, it’s important to go through every single thing that you’ve done to your hair previously, both good and bad, so you know where you need to make adjustments to meet your current goals.
  • Set Realistic Goals I don’t care what any bottle of hair vitamin tells you, but it may not be realistic to have 12 inches of hair growth in just a year. Not at all saying it’s not possible, but it’s important to set realistic hair goals that are attainable. If you know that your hair grows about half an inch a month, 12 inches of hair growth by December 2016 may not be realistic. You must also account for the normal wear and tear of your hair, frequent trims, and those times where you just may not be so good to your hair (it happens!). Set realistic goals that fit your lifestyle.
  • Take Action and Stay Consistent One of the reasons why we don’t keep our goals is because we don’t just do it! You’ve written the goal down, now make it happen! Take action! Start doing the things you said you were going to do to reach your goal and stay consistent. Don’t start for a few weeks, and then fall off for a few months, and then decide to pick it back up again. You won’t reach your goal if you aren’t consistent. Take proactive steps to make your goals a reality.
  • Create A Hair Regimen A regimen is simply a plan of action for your hair. When creating your regimen, you will need to factor in the products you’ll be using in your hair, when you’ll be using them, how you’ll be using them and how you’ll be using them. I suggest at least a 4-week plan on how you’ll be taking care of your hair and it should be easy enough to follow and be consistent with. Take before & after pictures to stay motivated and inspired.
