We have all heard about the hoopla of hair vitamins for hair growth. There are various hair vitamin brands on the market right now. Everyone from celebrities to YouTube gurus have been taking hair vitamins, and weighing in on the pros and cons of taking them. And, if you are like me – a researcher – I am sure that you’ve Googled information surrounding the hair vitamins you’ve seen blasted all over social media boasted amazing results through before and after pictures and testimonials.
If you are on the fence regarding trying hair vitamins for hair growth, I thought that it would be better for me to state some facts rather than do a review, and focus on the popular brand, Hairfinity.
The ingredients of the hair vitamin Hairfinity include: Biotin (promotes healthy hair growth), Niacin which is Vitamin B3 that promotes scalp circulation, Vitamin A which is an antioxidant that helps maintain scalp health, Vitamin C which is an antioxidant that helps maintain hair and skin health, Vitamin D which prevents shedding, Vitamin B12 which helps to sustain hair growth, Vitamin B Complex which nourishes the scalp to promote hair growth, Silica which keeps your hair shiny, MSM which is Sulfur based (beware if you have a Sulfur allergy) and Capilsana Complex-which is the one component that is different and separates Hairfinity from other vitamins-it literally is a powerhouse antioxidant that gives your hair strength which decreases breakage and promotes growth.
The price point of the Hairfinity hair vitamins ranges from $24-$48 depending on the supply that you are interested in (1 month supply, 2 month supply or 4 month supply). Per the instructions, you should take 1 pill in the am and 1 pill in the evening.
A large majority of individuals taking Hairfinity have experienced hair growth and/or length retention while taking them. The most common side effect is acne.
If you are determining if taking a hair vitamin is right for you, I encourage you to NEVER rely on a hair vitamin for the health of your hair. With proper nutrition combined with an excellent hair care regimen, and a daily vitamin you can and will achieve the same amount of natural hair growth.
Although the results may seem quicker when taking a specific hair vitamin, one must ask themselves. ‘What happens when I stop taking the vitamin? Will my hair go back to being brittle and the hair growth cease?’ Whether you decide on taking any hair vitamin, make sure you first do your research.
I hope that this post provided you some additional insight on hair vitamins.
