5 Supplements that Support Healthy Hair

by Melissa Chichester

Have you ever wondered how to get soft, smooth, and shiny hair? 

Most of us have thought about hair health but may not know how to achieve it. After all, hair is personal and not all hair is the same. However, whether it’s wavy, curly, straight, textured, thick, or thin, there are ways to keep your hair healthy with lifestyle practices and nutrition. 

Supporting hair health also supports mental health and overall well-being. Most of us want to look our best. And if we’re honest, the way our hair looks can impact our self-esteem and confidence.

If you haven’t explored ways to improve your hair health, here are six tips to get started.

  1. Protect hair while swimming: Swimming in a pool treated with chlorine can lead to dry and brittle hair. Protect your hair by wearing a swim cap. 
  2. Avoid overwashing your hair: Overwashing strips the scalp and hair of natural oils.
  3. Learn your hair type: The Aveda Institute notes there are four main hair types, each with three subtypes for a total of 12. For example, Type 3B hair is dense and usually coarse with tight curls, while Type 1A is pin straight. 
  4. Visit an expert: Unsure of your hair type? Visit a hair stylist to learn about your hair type and the best ways to take care of it. 
  5. Practice scalp care: Your scalp is like the rest of your skin in that it changes with age. The health of your scalp also influences hair health. Be sure to moisturize regularly while shampooing and make adjustments throughout the seasons.
  6. Avoid harsh treatments: Chemical treatments, whether it’s dye, relaxers, or something else, may do more harm than good. The good news is there are more gentle options than ever before for promoting hair health today. Speak to a stylist for recommendations. 

5 supplements for hair 

Nutrition plays an important role in hair health. Human hair is made of proteins – most notably keratin. Hair grows from the root, where keratin forms. The root is inside a hair follicle. When hair grows, it is pushed out of the follicle. From there, hair is fed nutrients by tiny blood vessels at the base of the follicle.

Biotin is a member of the B complex group and used to be called Vitamin H because of the German words for hair and skin: “haar” and “haut.”

Because it is water-soluble, biotin must be replenished daily. One of the primary benefits of biotin is supporting energy metabolism.* In addition, biotin supports skin health, nail health, and hair health.*
