Vitamins and Minerals play a very important role in helping your hair to produce healthy hair, due to the fact that you grow your hair from the inside out. There are various ways in which you can ensure you are receiving the correct amount of vitamins and minerals to help with hair growth which include eating a diet rich in hair growth nutrients and also taking a vitamin supplement rich in the correct vitamins for hair health.


 We are going to run you through some of the most important Vitamins, minerals and botanicals when it comes to healthy hair and explain how you can get enough of these hair boosting vitamins.


Biotin – Vitamin B7


Probably the most well known vitamin to help with hair growth. Biotin is known to help convert other nutrients into energy, so is an important B vitamin when it comes to helping energy and reducing fatigue. Biotin is probably best known though for its quality to helping with hair and skin.


If you are deficient in Biotin, you can develop hair loss and also have irritation within the scalp, causing discomfort and also extended hair damage.


Biotin has a number of research driven examples of helping to reduce hair loss and also helping to contribute towards normal hair, skin and nails health. There are a number of examples of where Biotin has helped to improve hair quality, but these have been based around doses higher than the RDA. Research shows that consuming 1500mg of Biotin per day helped to develop normal healthy hair is subjects who were suffering from hair loss, related to deficiency.  This is why SOS Hair Care Vitamin drink uses this level of biotin within our daily dose, which is almost 6 times more than leading competitors, to give your hair the best chance to recover.


You can pump up your biotin levels by eating foods which are rich in vitamin b7, these include eggs, almonds, Cauliflower, cheese, mushrooms and spinach.




Copper has some very clear health boosting properties, including helping to fight inflammation, which is turn can cause issues on our skin and scalp. A reduction in copper levels within our body has also been shown to cause hair to thin, which has a massive effect on the strength of hair, leading to breakage. Copper has been shown to play a critical role in reducing and even preventing damage to hair follicles, helping your body to produce healthy hair from the root. Your hair wants to receive as much nutrients as possible to help it to grow, but your hair can only accept blood from 1 capillary, if that capillary is reduced in size or inflamed, then the nutrients cannot pass to the hair as easily. Copper helps with this processes, improving circulation to the hair.


Foods high in Copper include Oysters, Mushrooms, Spirulina, Leafy greens and even dark chocolate.
