Prenatal vitamins are often associated with hair growth because many women's hair will grow much longer while they are pregnant. However, soon after the baby is born, their hair will return to normal or begin to shed more than usual. Prenatal vitamins are packed with many nutrients that are beneficial for hair growth, however, this drastic change in growth patterns is not completely due to the vitamins.
When a woman becomes pregnant, her body becomes "oxygen rich" in order to properly deliver nutrients to her developing baby. Blood circulation becomes extremely high in order to adapt to the metabolic needs of the embryo. This increased circulation also helps transport oxygen and nutrients to the scalp and follicles. During pregnancy, the body also becomes "estrogen-rich." Estrogen levels regulate the length of the hair growth phase. When estrogen is high, the hairs will stay in the growth (anagen) phase much longer before entering the shedding (telogen) phase. This temporarily "locks" all of the hair in the growth phase. This may be why many women experience faster hair growth during pregnancy.
Once the baby is born
When pregnant, all of the hairs that would have normally entered into the shedding phase are locked into the growth phase. This makes hair grow longer and fuller.
So other than pregnancy and genetics, what can I do to get longer faster growing hair?
Hairfinity Hair Vitamins are formulated with hair-specific vitamins to promote healthy hair growth. Also, MSM, is believed to help naturally extend the hair growth phase. Methylsolfonylmethane, or MSM, is a natural form of organic sulfonyl sulfur. It is found in many foods, especially most raw fruits and green vegetables. MSM provides sulfur that is required for healthy collagen and keratin. These are very important for healthy hair. MSM repairs and creates healthy cells thus allowing hair to grow more rapidly and achieve greater lengths. MSM is not present in prenatal vitamins.
