Here are our recommendations for healthy hair growth
- Good nutrition is essential to support your hair growth and development. A balanced diet along with a high-quality multi vitamin and mineral complex will help ensure that all the essential nutrients required for hair growth are available in adequate amounts.
- Specific nutrients can help support healthy hair follicle function and even form part of the hair structure itself as well as assist in the production of normal sebum that naturally conditions and protects the hair. Common nutrient insufficiencies or deficiencies affecting hair growth are iron, zinc, vitamin A and essential fatty acids. Other specific nutrients that support healthy hair condition include silica, vitamin D, biotin, vitamin B5 and protein. Many herbal extracts are naturally high in minerals, which further benefit hair health.
- Besides your internal health, the condition of your hair can be affected by other factors such as over-styling, colouring, environmental toxins (eg. chlorine in swimming pools), and overexposure to the sun. Skin conditions such as dandruff, dermatitis, psoriasis and fungal infections can also damage hair follicles and adversely affect hair growth. In these cases, Chinese herbs can provide internal nourishment to restore the health of the skin, including the hair follicle, and re-establish healthy hair growth. Considering the time, effort and money many of us dedicate to our hair, it makes sense to get to the root cause and support hair health from the inside out.
