Biotin has come to be known for its role in the health and beauty of Hair, Skin and Nails. It is an essential water-soluble B vitamin that promotes healthy hair growth and protects against dryness. It also works to increase the elasticity of the hair’s cortex, thus preventing breakage. However, biotin also has other benefits. Biotin can be found in beans, breads, cauliflower, egg yolks, fish, kidney, legumes, liver, meat, dairy products, nuts, oatmeal, oysters, peanut butter, poultry, and whole grains.
In addition to Biotin, there are other vitamins that can promote healthy hair growth such as Folic Acid, Pantothenic Acid, Vitamins A, C, and D, and more.
While supplements can promote faster hair growth, it is important to also properly care for hair so that it will not break. Preventing breakage is the most important step when trying to grow longer hair. Breakage can limit your hair’s maximum length, no matter how fast your hair is growing. Why? Well think of it like this, if your hair was growing one inch per month (which is really fast), but you were cutting it one inch per month, would you notice any difference in the length? The answer is no. You may notice an increase in thickness, but no change in length because you would be cutting it as fast as it is growing. Now, think about how much hair you could be possibly losing to breakage.
