Some beauty mavens swear by hair supplements for maximum luster and growth. And don't get us wrong here; we're all for it. But hair supplements are meant to coincide with your hair care regime; not replace it. Think of pills as an extra boost of love, and not as the sole proprietor of your hair's health.
Think of it this way; it wouldn't be smart to eat terribly while you're planning on having a drastic weight loss surgery. Gastric bypass, for example, was designed to work WITH your new healthy lifestyle. Well, in the same respect (ok, maybe we took the long way around here), this also applies your locks.
No pill or supplement is going to change the integrity of your hair; it's meant to complement your existing hair care regime, providing that you're nourishing your locks and preparing them for fabulous. So before you crank up the heat on your straightener to 400 because you think your hair supplements will protect you, think again; it's still imperative to protect the structural integrity of your mane with an all-natural formula like the BLNDN Complex.
Surgeon General's warning aside, we're all for it. We've even picked out the top five favorite supplements in our own medicine cabinets. Just remember... before you reach for your Biotin, reach for your REPAIR YOU as well.
Not only are Omega-3's ideal for preventing a flaky scalp, these fatty acids, commonly found in dishes like Salmon, regulate our body's production of oils and contribute to healthier, shinier manes. If you're vegan or not a fan of fish, try our favorite Fish Oil pills, a super easy fix.
Around 15mg of Vitamin E per day is all you need to thicken your hair up. Vitamin E can be found in avocado (YASS for HASS), olive oil, and wheat germ. In pill form, try Nature Made, which retails for around $10.
Zinc, by nature, promotes the reproduction of cells and spurs tissue regrowth, so it's super good for your regrowing hair, as it essentially multiplies the strands. Zinc can be found in seafood, chicken, and other forms of protein, like eggs. You can also pop an 8mg pill daily for the same effect.
Take around 3mg of Biotin daily to boost hair growth, fill in baby fine spots around your hairline, and boost shine. Biotin is found naturally in foods like peanut butter and bananas or in pill-form, like our favorite from Amazon.
Lackluster, brittle, or dry locks are commonly a sign of an iron deficiency. Boost your daily iron intake by adding an Iron pill to your regime, or like eating foods like spinach and nuts. In addition, you'll need restore health to your existing hair by washing with a conditioning shampoo like QUENCH YOU.
