Are Hair Supplements Effective?
Hair supplements are often the first products people try when they first notice the signs of hair loss. However, if you research popularly-marketed supplements, you will immediately notice that reviews about their effectiveness are often mixed or are outright negative.
Many supplements on the market advertise thicker, fuller hair; however, most clients report that they do not see any real results after using them. One of the most common ingredients that you will see in hair loss supplements is Biotin (also known as Vitamin H), which is touted to thicken hair and keep it healthy. One problem is that there are no clinical trial results that support the argument that Biotin helps treat or prevent hair loss.
B vitamins, amino acids, omega-3 and omega 6 fatty acids, and vitamin C are also commonly found in expensive hair-loss supplements, but they are all items that you can purchase separately to supplement your diet. Again, with all of these highly-touted dietary supplements, there is little evidence that any of them have a strong impact on hair loss.
Ultimately, it is hard to argue that a proper diet and the right vitamins are not beneficial for your overall health, but if you are looking for a specific impact on your hair, you may not see the results you are looking for.
