Taking your vitamins: More vital than you think!!

The vitamins I take EVERY night!
From the beginning of my hair journey, I have been up-and-down about taking my vitamins. Sometimes I would take them religiously and sometimes I would slack off for weeks (even months) on end. However, I've always noticed that with consistency, my hair has THRIVED while taking my vitamins!

While doing a little research today, however, I found something that might make me a little but MORE consistent with taking them: a deficiency in certain vitamins (primarily B12, B7[a.k.a. Biotin], E, and C) can cause actual hair loss! (Side note: a deficiency in vitamin E can also cause premature graying of the hair...)

Guess I'll be making sure that I'm on top of my nutrition (eating right and supplementing my diet with vitamins) from now on...!

FYI: MY favorite vitamins are either Nature's Bounty Hair Skin and Nails formula or CVS Brand Hair Skin and Nails Vitamins (which are the exact same as the Nature's Bounty). I also take Omega-3 Fish Oil caplets and an additional 5000mcg of biotin daily.

What vitamins/supplements do you take for optimal hair health??


  1. I don't take vitamins, I just eat my fruits and vegetables and drink my water. Get protein regularly from food and that's about it.

  2. I am SO inconsistent when it comes to my vitamins (shame on me!). I've learned that what helps me is taking my vitamins at the same time every day to help up the habit, usual with my breakfast.

    P.S. I love your new header :)

  3. @PDT: that's great!! I need to do like you and eat my fruits and veggies... but I have the WORST eating habits... =/

    @Jeni: thanks girlie!!! You're right, making them part of your daily routine (taking them at the same time daily) makes it more likely that you will remember!!

  4. Taking vitamins is very vital for our health. They can help us treat and prevent different illnesses.

  5. I always spent my half an hour to read this blog's content all the time along with a mug of coffee.
