Let's Talk About Supplements

Before the supplements are discussed it is important for you to understand the sad truth. There isn’t anything over the counter that can make hair grow that was not going to grow. The most important thing to do when you experience hair loss is to take care of the remaining hair and your scalp.

Supplements can play a role in maintaining healthy hair, but it's important to note that the results may vary among individuals. Here are a few supplements that are commonly associated with promoting hair health:


Biotin, also known as vitamin H, is a B-complex vitamin that is often marketed for improving hair and nail strength and growth. Biotin helps in the production of keratin, a protein that forms the structural component of hair. While studies have shown that biotin supplementation can improve the quality of hair and reduce hair loss in individuals with biotin deficiencies, its effectiveness in individuals with normal biotin levels is less clear.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D plays a vital role in hair follicle cycling and hair growth. Some studies suggest that vitamin D deficiency may contribute to hair loss. If you have a deficiency, supplementing with vitamin D may help promote healthier hair.


Iron deficiency, or anemia, can contribute to hair loss. Supplementing with iron may be beneficial if you have an iron deficiency, but it is always important to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any supplementation regimen.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish oil or flaxseed oil, have anti-inflammatory properties and can help support scalp health. Adequate intake of omega-3 fatty acids through diet or supplements may contribute to overall hair health and reduce dryness and inflammation of the scalp.

It's essential to remember that a balanced diet, healthy lifestyle, and individual factors such as genetics, overall health, and underlying medical conditions can significantly impact hair health. If you have concerns about your hair health, it is recommended to consult with a healthcare professional or a qualified nutritionist who can provide tailored advice based on your specific needs.
