FORK TO FOLLICLE

As a Trichologist, I understand how crucial nutrition is to having healthy hair, a healthy scalp and also recovery from many hair loss conditions.  I have studied clinical nutrition with some of the UK's top most respected experts.  Enabling us to deliver to you, accurate nutritional advice.  

We have put together and designed an information packed leaflet for everyone to grow the best hair they can and get the best out of their diets.  Pop into the salon to pick one up.

Vitamins!!
We now have our very own vitamins available at The Hair Lab.  

All about B vitamins & hair loss

 

The B Complex vitamins are a group of eight water-soluble vitamins essential for metabolism in the body.  If your body is deficient in these vitamins it is going to impact your hair one way or another.  Whether it be the structure of your hair causing breakage or it lacking shine or actual hair loss itself. 

 

Here’s a few good to know facts…………

Riboflavin also known as vitamin B2, keeps skin and hair strong.  Deficiencies cause hair loss and may be caused by many factors such as alcoholism, over active thyroid and being elderly.  You can get B2 through eggs, leafy greens, lentils, chickpeas, milk and grains.

Pantothenic Acid also known as vitamin B5, supports the adrenal glands which help stimulate hair growth.  B5 can be found in eggs, beef, chicken, avocado, nuts and potatoes.

Pyridoxine also known as vitamin B6.  If your body is deficient in B6 you may experience skin problems, like dermatitis.  Kidney disease, auto-immune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, malabsorption issues or alcoholism can cause deficiencies.  You can find B6 in whole grains, leafy greens and meats.   

Biotin known as B7, helps improve the keratin infrastructure, which is the main protein within the hair.  Deficiencies can be caused by smoking, impaired liver function, eating too much egg whites – egg whites contain a protein that binds to the Biotin and prevents it from being absorbed by the body. Pregnancy can also cause deficiencies because of the rapidly dividing cells of developing foetus requires Biotin

Cobalamin also known as vitamin B12, is responsible for cellular metabolism and red blood cell formation.  When a cell reproduces, one of the first things it has to do it copy the cellular DNA - hair growth is dependant on this process.  Therefore, deficiencies can cause hair loss and prematurely whitening of the hair, which is reversible upon correcting the deficiency
