Vitamins for Hair Growth

Can vitamins and pills really help promote your hair growth rate? That is very debatable, but the vitamins discussed in the list below might be useful in making your hair grow quicker. Available from your local mom-and-pop drug store, gigantic chain drug stores or over the web, some people say that these vitamins have helped and stimulated their hair regeneration.

Vitamin A

Found in mango, butternut squash, broccoli, tomato juice, carrots, pumpkin, sweet potatoes and beef liver, Vitamin A is famous for improving your eyesite. But people claim that Vitamin A can also be very beneficial in promoting hair regrowth.

Vitamin C

Found in spinach, broccoli, citrus fruits, red bell peppers, tomato juice, kiwi, snow peas, mango, grapefruit juice and strawberries, Vitamin C is partly known for helping your body heal and that includes benefiting your hair in staying healthy and offering optimal hair regrowth.

Vitamin D

Found in egg yolk, fortified milk, fatty fish and liver, Vitamin D is beneficial for for bones and hair. Your body also generates Vitamin D internally when your skin is exposed to sunlight.

Folic Acid

Foods high in folic acid include black-eyed peas, lentils, okra, orange juice, whole wheat breads, asparagus and pasta. Folic acid is vital during cell mitosis and growth, including hair regeneration!


Biotin is found in soybeans, liver, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, almonds, carrots, onions, eggs, cucumber, cabbage, goat's milk, cauliflower, cow's milk, strawberries, halibut, raspberries, oats and walnuts. Some shampoos contain biotin, but it is not at all certain how useful it is because biotin is not absorbed by the skin very well. Vitamin supplements and natural foods are the recommended ways to take biotin.

Panthothenic Acid

Pantothenic acid is found in whole grains, meats, avocados and broccoli. Although many shampoo and cosmetics contain pantothenic acid and they claim these ingredients contain hair benefits, this claim has not been substantiated.


MSM, or Methylsulfonylmethane, is a natural source of sulfur. It may be beneficial to hair regeneration and is marketed as a dietary supplement.

None of these supplements or vitamins have been proven to stimulate, help or promote hair regrowth, but a many people claim increases of up to 150% in their hair regeneration rate. Everybody reacts differently and these vitamins may help your particular head of hair or they may not, so test them out carefully with your hair first and proceed with caution.
