The healthy and balanced diet for healthy, strong and growing hair
- What do you think of the growth vitamins?
Here is a question that was asked to me a few months ago.
I think these vitamins are a dream seller. Being the type to take pills only when I'm against drugs bought without medical supervision.
Not only do these vitamins not guarantee me an unwanted growth of hair (on the face for example) but in addition it is possible to overdose which would destroy the expected results.
I believe that regular external care with the right products and a healthy diet is the key to having amazing hair!
Knowing that these vitamins are in most of the foods we have available, I don't see the point of gaining 1 cm with these vitamins when some Kaylabelles have gained 6 cm in 2 months thanks to the challenges!
A healthy and balanced diet is essential to maintain healthy and strong hair growth.
