Vitamin E is heavily involved in the growth and development of capillaries (arteries). An extensive network of capillaries delivers nutrients to the scalp and it is this that promotes hair growth.
How can you use vitamin E:
- If you take a multivitamin check that vitamin E is one of the key vitamins.
- Consume more vitamin E through your diet - this is better than taking a multivitamin.
- Add a little vitamin E oil to your hair products; vitamin E oil is a common ingredient in my DIY homemade hair recipes.
