Thinning hair got you down? Don’t worry, there’s a supplement for that! Hair fall can be the result of several different factors including diet, lifestyle, age, and genetics. Most people struggle to find the exact cause of their thinning hair and have found success in supplementation because of its ability to deliver fortifying and nourishing ingredients to the scalp.

In fact, there’s one supplement that health coach and “Eat Pretty” author Jolene Hart recommends because it acts as a multivitamin for the hair thanks to its powerful blend of ingredients from zinc and iodine to Chinese herbs like han lian cao–it’s Natural Wellbeing’s Hair Essential Supplement.

“Zinc is necessary to produce carotene in the body, which boosts hair growth,” Hart says. “Bamboo and horsetail are sources of silica, which builds hair strength and elasticity. It also has vitamins A and C, which are general beauty vitamins great for repair and renewal. ”

Unfortunately, results won't appear overnight. Hart says that hair supplements can take up to six months to see results as that is how long it takes for your hair to grow--so don't stress if you don't see any improvements right away! 

Experts also suggest switching to a high-protein diet to help reverse the appearance of thinning hair. 


"Protein is critical to healthy hair," Francesca J. Fusco, MD, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, tells "Lean meat, fish, poultry, and beans are all great sources. Iron is also important; low iron can lead to anemia, which can lead to increased hair shedding. The great news is that with proper diet and supplementation, this type of hair loss is reversible."

Ask your doctor if making these changes to your lifestyle will help improve the appearance, quality, and strength of your hair!
