One of the most common reasons for hair loss is a vitamin deficiency. Very often, people who suffer from hair loss, also suffer from vitamin deficiency in their diets. Here is a list of the vitamins that are most often deficient in people suffering from slow-growing, weak, brittle hair or hair loss.
Vitamin E is one of the most important vitamins your hair needs in order to prevent hair loss and maintain its beautiful aspect. Researches have shown that vitamin E increases oxygen intake, enhances the immune system and improves blood circulation, thus facilitating a faster hair growth and preventing further hair loss.
Some of the best sources of Vitamin E are nuts, spinach, Soya beans, wheat germ, sprouts, broccoli, eggs, seeds, avocados, and olive oil. Almonds are rich in vitamin E and daily consumption of almonds is effective in lowering the LDL cholesterol levels, which is responsible for hair fall. It also improves the blood circulation in the scalp and improves the overall health of hair. Read more on foods containing Vitamin E.
Massaging your scalp with vitamin E oil can lead to both increased blood and oxygen being circulated to that area. To decrease your hair loss, you will need to conduct a massage once a week for approximately 4 to 5 months in order to notice a reversal of the problem.
Rub the oil into your scalp, cover your head with a towel, and let everything rest for 1-3 hours before washing the oil out with a mild shampoo. A mixture of almond and coconut oil has also been proven to be an effective massage medium.
