In order to prevent this, we have to choose a balanced diet and, if we want to make our hair stronger and healthier, we can also try some vitamins to help it grow supplements hair growth

  1. I really enjoyed this article because I’m actually in the process of growing out my hair. I often times forget to include these necessary vitamins or foods in my diet. I agree with you; It is more beneficial to consume these hair growing vitamins naturally than to take artificial supplements.

    Many people, including me, are lacking in vitamin D. Thank you for the reminder on which foods to consume to increase my intake.

    Keep Smiling!

  2. Your post on hair and hair growth is quite informative.I usually have that type of scarce hair,though not bad but at times when i do blow dry my head looks so empty.This makes me to be plaited most of the time .I can bet i am not a fun of fruits and this is unfortunate.I knew of their own benefits on the body but i did not think they have an impact on hair growth.You post has opened my eyes and i can say it is time to take in a serious manner.Thanks for your post.

  3. Thanks for this very informative post.

    I have studied natural health products for a number of years and although I was aware of their benefits for healthy hair growth, I hadn’t really investigated this aspect in depth.

    It is very interesting to note that all of the vitamins you mentioned are present in great quantities in one of my favourite products, Aloe Vera Gel. Just like all the vegetables and fruit you listed, this is a plant leaf and as such provides the natural benefits you discussed.

    • Yes, I’ve heard a lot of things about the Aloe Vera Gel, but I didn’t know it contains all these vitamins. It’s good to know :

  4. Very nice job on this site. I enjoyed reading about hair growth. I have been going bald for several years now and while give your recommendations a try. did you know that strawberries or one of the highest sources for vitamin C, way more than oranges.
    I wish you the best with your site.

  5. Ashly,
    Thanks for the information you have given me. Enjoyed learning about hair loss and growth. I am about half bold do you think there is still hope for me ? It’s a shame that it is so hard to eat healthy when you are on a fixed budget.
    Thanks again,

    • Yes,I understand what you mean by a fixed budget… 🙁 However, when it comes to men’s hair loss, things are a bit different. I’ve studied at university that the male hormones are responsible for hair loss, therefore women can take medicines against those hormones, in case they are too many, which can happen sometimes. But when it comes to men, this is impossible because you can’t simply destroy your own hormones, it would lead to serious problems. This is why this is a problem that doesn’t have a very certain answer yet.
      You’ve probably seen on the internet a lot of products, at least I have, but I don’t know what to tell you, if they’re good or not, I can only talk about what I’ve tried. But I promise I’ll try to research more about this, and we might even study more about it at university, so if I find something out, I will definitely tell you 🙂

  6. Hey Ashley, you’ve done a great job with the content on your page and using smaller paragraphs but the theme you’ve chosen has made it hard to really see your content and it doesn’t really fit with your topic. I’d recommend trying out a few themes and seeing what you like best about each. For a website about how to get great hair you want a light, airy theme with brighter colors instead of the black menus on a small white base. It’ll help your content flow smoother 🙂

    Also you want the title of your website to have at least every word capitalized so that it stands out for your users 🙂

    Lastly The icon in your browser’s tab is still the wordpress icon. To change it you can go to your wordpress dashboard and select “Appearance” –> “Customize”–> “Site Identity” –> “Site Icon” and upload the icon you want 🙂

    • Thank you very much for your advice 🙂 I’m working on choosing a better theme and I think I almost found it.

      I was also wondering if I could change that icon because I had no idea how, so thank you very much for helping me 🙂
