SCIENCE AND NATURAL HAIR
I am so scared of long-term side effects of supplements/vitamins targeted at hair growth. I would be on some type if not for that since my hair seems not to grow as fast as 'normal'.
Yes I have seen some women report pretty bad side effects related to high levels of some vitamins.
I take vit D 'cuz there is no sun here.
I take Anacaps from Ducray. They really worked for a friend of mine, so I resolved to give it a try. :)
Hope you get the results you want :)
After having extensive blood-work done last Spring, I was diagnosed with anemia and a vitamin D deficiency. After about 3 months of taking the prescribed supplements, I noticed a tremendous improvement in my hair density and strand strength. I'm not a fan of taking supplements for vanity reasons only, but if improved health equals more and better hair, what a wonderful bonus!
lol welcome to the club! I also had anaemia and vit D deficiency
I was diagnosed with severe vitamin D deficiency last year after my initial symtoms were ignored by a GP as I had been suffering from another illness. However there is no way the symptoms correlate. So after taking mega doses I am on a maintenance dose for the rest of my life.I was then informed 6 months later I have an iron deficiency and B12 deficiency. So I am on more supplements.So now I feel a lot better and have gone back to living a normal life. The side effect to this is my hair has stopped falling out, is no longer brittle and started growing.
I agree with Miss Dwana "not a fan of taking supplements for vanity reasons". I take vitamins C (effervence tablets), D and B12 Complex (liquid), Acidophilus and Multi-vitamins. I am a Pescatarian and West Indian descent.
Having a blood test done every 6 months has helped me know which vitamins to take regularly. I have noticed that more I exercise, especially lifting weights, the more iron and folic acid I need.

i take one-a-day women's multivitamins only because my diet is lacking in certain vitamins/minerals and i'm still changing my diet around to get these nutrients in my everyday meals. So until i get a better handle on it, this multivitamin is for me. That and cod liver oil. I tried biotin for a bit; worked more on my nails than hair so i gave that up
I read smoothies are much better than taking vitamins so that is what I do.
