We immediately dispel a myth: vitamins are not a "miracle" remedy to counteract the thinning of the hair and their fall. Hair loss does not depend solely on a lack of hair. Some minerals and proteins are equally important for their health.

A hypervitaminosis or hypovitaminosis can damage the hair, although, it remains true that vitamins play a fundamental role in maintaining healthy hair, and their deficiency can lead to abnormalities of the scalp.

Let’s see together what vitamins affect hair growth and what care to provide in case of deficiency.

Lifestyle, vitamins and hair loss

The role of diet

To have thick hair, have a healthy, varied and balanced diet is essential. It gives the hair follicles all the nutrients they need.

Habits that hinder the absorption of vitamins

Some bad habits can hinder the absorption of nutrients: excessive consumption of cigarettes, alcohol, coffee, as well as stress can damage the hair.

Aggressive treatments, such as antibiotics, can also weaken the scalp.

What vitamin is missing when hair falls out?

Some vitamins are valuable nutrients for organic well-being and the smooth functioning of the hair life cycle: in particular vitamins B, B5, B6, C, in addition to iron and zinc.

If the hair follicles do not receive a sufficient amount of these nutrients, the risk you run is to see your hair weaken and, even worse, fall.

Vitamins for hair: group B

The B group vitamin complex includes eight vitamins:

  • vitamin B1 or thiamine
  • vitamin B2 or riboflavin
  • vitamin B3 or niacin
  • vitamin B5 or pantothenic acid
  • vitamin B6 or pyridoxine
  • vitamin B8 or biotin
  • vitamin B9 or folic acid
  • vitamin B12.

They are involved in the synthesis of certain proteins, in particular in the production of keratin, essential for the health of the hair. Some studies have shown the correlation between vitamin B2, B8, B9, B12 deficiency and hair loss.

Vitamins for hair: C

Oxidative stress can impair the ability of the scalp to sustain normal cell renewal, as demonstrated by a research conducted by the London Centre for Skin Research.

It is possible to fight it thanks to vitamin C. It is a powerful antioxidant that protects the cells of the body from the stress produced by free radicals.

In addition, vitamin C is involved in the production of collagen and intestinal absorption of iron, mineral that contributes to the well-being of the hair.

Vitamins for hair: D

Alopecia, irritability, tiredness, increased stress levels: these are some of the risks faced by those who have a lack of vitamins D. Taking enough of them means facilitating the birth of new follicles and consequently allowing hair growth.

Vitamins for hair regrowth: how to supplement them?

Most people can ensure the body the right intake of vitamins, minerals, and proteins for hair health thanks to a healthy and properly balanced diet.

However, at certain times in life, specific integration may be necessary.

Use a shampoo with a good inci
