6 Vitamins for Healthy Hair Growth

6 Vitamins for Healthy Hair Growth

There are tonnes of factors that can affect the health of our hair, from stress, to heat-styling, diet and lifestyle.

Whether you want your hair to grow longer, to feel fuller or to look more vibrant, we need to ensure our hair is healthy to help it shine.

There are countless masks, serums, conditioners and sprays, but we often forget that what we put into our bodies is just as important.

Here's our pick of the 6 best, tried and tested vitamins and minerals you need to be taking to reach your hair goals.

1. BIOTIN

Biotin, or Vitamin B7 is found naturally in eggs, spinach and sweet potatoes.  Often regarded as the holy grail of hair growth supplements, scientific studies show that taking biotin supplements improves hair quality, growth and strength.

2. ZINC

In our quest for long, strong, shiny tresses, we often forget that our scalp health is just as important as our hair.  Zinc helps with cell tissue growth and plays an important role in the oil glands in the scalp, ensuring they produce enough sebum which keeps hair moisturised and the scalp hydrated.  Studies also show that Zinc supplementation can help to reduce hair loss.

3. COPPER

Nothing says healthy hair quite like beautiful, vibrant colour.  Copper plays an important role in melanin formation, and the pigmentation of the hair.  Lower copper levels can actually affect our hair colour, which can lead to those wispy greys.

4. VITAMIN C

Vitamin C is most well known as an immune-booster, but did you know it also assists our bodies in making collagen, which helps to strengthen hair follicles?  Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant which can help to fight against free radicals which can damage our cells and slow down hair growth.

5. ALOE VERA

Aloe Vera's usage can be traced back as far as 6,000 years to ancient Egypt where it was used to treat hair loss among many other ailments.  The pharaohs were clearly onto a good thing; Aloe Vera is packed full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, all vital in supporting beautiful, healthy hair growth.  

6. SUNFLOWER SEED OIL

Sunflower Oil is made from pressing sunflower seeds and extracting the oil from them.  Rich in Zinc and Vitamin E content, Sunflower Oil increases blood circulation, stimulating the hair follicle, which in turn promotes healthy hair growth.

For years, the shelves have been awash with pills, capsules, tablets and even gummy sweets promising to help your hair grow. But did you know that only 10%-20% of the nutrients in vitamin pills are absorbed into the body, whereas liquid, drinkable vitamins are absorbed up to 98%.

As an award-winning British brand, here at Pink Cloud Beauty Co, we've carefully taken all 6 vitamins for healthy hair and blended them into one delicious, easy-to-use formula, in our lime & mint flavoured Hair Drinkable Vitamins.
