Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect against free radicals.
Everyone’s body needs Vitamin C as it has so many benefits but none more so than for your hair. Your body needs Vitamin C to produce collagen which is an important part of our hair structure.
Vitamin C also helps our bodies absorb iron which is an important part of hair growth. If you are deficient in Iron then this can lead to hair loss or your hair not growing past a certain point. Another sign that you could be lacking enough Vitamin C in your diet is if your hair is excessively brittle, dry, breaks easily or you find that you are shedding more than usual.
Vitamin C can be found in so many different foods that make up our daily diet so make sure you are getting enough of these so that your hair looks it’s best. Oranges, Lemons, Strawberries, Blackcurrants, Kiwi, Watermelon, Brocoli, Peppers, Kale and Potatoes all contain Vitamin C.
