Hair, Nail & Skin Health
With the humidity levels in Singapore, hair supplements are a necessary part of your diet for shiny and healthy-looking hair. Hair damage can be caused by multiple reasons. Excessive chemical treatments (dying, perming, straightening) and poor diet are just some of the causes of hair fall and damage.
In such a case, you should supplement your diet with a multivitamin to build the strength of your hair roots. Vitamin B complex is a good place to start for all-round scalp care. Omega 3 & 6 too are widely believed to help keep your hair shiny and strong.
Take note that hair has a growth cycle of about 3 months. These supplements do not work overnight. A period of 3 to 6 months would be required in order to see a substantial change. If there is a deficiency causing this problem, the body will correct it first by sending the nutrients to the vital organs first. Only then do the nutrients go to the hair. Patience is definitely a virtue in this case.
Biotin (Vitamin B-7) has been closely linked to aiding hair loss and assisting in the treatment of hair disorders. A lack of B-7 can cause hair to be brittle, thin and have split ends. Women may experience hair loss before and after pregnancy and the use of biotin may help support the hair strength.
