Vitamins, minerals and protein
Protein — The hair is composed mostly of protein (keratin). A lack of protein in a diet can slow hair growth.
Omega 3 fatty acids — This provides nutrients and protein for the hair follicles, and supports healthy hair growth while adding shine and luster to hair.
Iodine and Selenium — They can aid in the proper functioning of hormones and in healthy hair growth.
Vitamin A — It can help to produce healthy sebum, which can keep the hair from becoming dry and brittle, reducing breakage.
Vitamin E — It boosts blood circulation in the body, especially important for the scalp. It can enable cells to get more oxygen, which produces more energy to allow improvement in hair growth.
