    Default Vitamins for Hair Growth??

    Hi all my fellow BTT!

    I'm thinking of taking Vitamins to nurture healthy hair and growth after my Hair Transplant. What kind and brand would you recommend? Is there something I should know about consumming Vitamins?

    Thanks in advance for your input!

    That unless you have a serious deficiency condition, you get all of what you need from a balanced diet. Supplements are money down the drain, really. I was on most of them for a couple of years and it didn't affect my hair any.

    Hair Growing Supplements

    Eat right, exercise, reduce stress, rest, gets lots of sleep and your are well on your way to maximizing your hair growth potential.
    You can either take a good supplement that contains the necessary vitamins and minerals or you can make up your own formula.

    While eating the proper foods that contain all the necessary vitamins and minerals will help, it is a lot more difficult to guarantee that you will get all the vitamins and minerals you need from the foods you eat.
    List of Supplements

    In addition to making lifestyle changes, taking the following supplements every day can boost hair growth for many people:

    Vitamin B-complex - 50 mg. of the major B-vitamins (including folate, biotin and inositol)

    Vitamin B-6 - 50 mg. of vitamin B-6

    Vitamin C with bioflavonoids - one to two grams daily

    Vitamin E - 400 to 800 IU daily

    Beta-Carotene - 10,000 to 15,000 IU of beta-carotene daily

    One recommended daily dose of magnesium, sulfur, zinc

    Silica (horsetail) - 300 mg. daily

    Nettle - 250 mg. three times daily

    Flaxseed oil - one tbsp daily or one tablet

    Beta-Carotene - 10,000 to 15,000 IU of beta-carotene daily

    Hair Growing Tips

    Some hair loss experts have discovered that people have excellent hair growing results by following the Zone Diet, which is low in fat. Many other hair care experts recommend the Zone Diet as very helpful for hair care concerns.
    Here are some other hair growing tips:

    Eliminate or cut back on smoking, caffeine and carbonated sodas which weaken the body and block maximum hair growing potential.

    Eat a healthy diet. Avoid foods that are high in sugar or fat.

    Treat your hair like a piece of fine old lace. Treat it carefully avoiding any unnecessary brushing, combing or handling.

    Avoid use of hot water, hot blow dryers or other hair care tools that may stress the hair.

    Have a weekly scalp massage to provide stimulation to the hair follicles.

    Do a series of ongoing hot oil treatments to protect the hair's shaft.

    Have regular trims to eliminate split ends and allow the hair to look and feel healthier.

    Get plenty of rest and sleep to allow your body to grow hair.

    Spex,

    That was a lot of helpul info. Thank you! And a lot of Vitamins, I'd be so full taking all those, hehe! But could you or anyone here narrow down to which brand is good and most popular one...or brand that has multiple BBCE and such? Aside from staying healthy which I already am trying...I just wanted one or two to go with the flow to keep my busy life less stressful.

    Default Acetyl-L Carnitine

    You might consider adding Acetyl-L-Carnitine to your post-transplant regimen. According to an NIH study, it does help with nerve regeneration. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15616239
