We all want our hair to be long, strong, and healthy. And as the saying goes, what we put in is what we get out. Even if your diet is healthy and full of the necessary food groups, it is possible that you aren’t getting the right nutrients to grow your hair to the length you want it.
We have all heard of this vitamin, if not from our hairdresser then definitely from this blog. But what exactly is biotin and why does our hair need it? Biotin* is also known as Vitamin H, and is a co-enzyme, which basically means that it makes the things our body needs by producing other enzymes.
One important thing it produces is fatty acids, which naturally moisturizes our hair, and without it, no amount of additives could keep our hair moisturized.
Biotin can also increase hair elasticity and produce keratin, which is what our hair is made of. Foods containing biotin* include nuts, dairy, eggs, and leafy green vegetables.
