CELEBRITY | BEAUTY SECRET

By Huda Heidi Kattan

Ok so I have sworn by these FOREVER! It’s great to see this actually trending, but super hot mama Hilary Duff posted a picture on twitter of her gorgeous hair extension-free! Her hair did NOT look extension free, but she commented saying “No extensions . . . Feels liberating . . . lol..Thank you prenatal vitamins!”

Do Prenatal Vitamins actually work? YESSS!! They are loaded with incredible vitamins for hair growth including Vitamin A & Biotin, while most of them are recommended to take with Fish Oil, CHA-CHING, literally the best combination for gorgeous thick hair! If you don’t want to take prenatal vitamins because of the excess iron, look for ones without iron or just increase your take of Biotin! This SERIOUSLY works guys, I promise!

When taking vitamins consult with your doctor. Please note, some people do experience breakouts when taking Biotin. If this happens, stop taking them!

    Women who are pregnant lose less hair because of increased blood volume therefore more blood flow to scalp so the amount of hair on head I increases so it feels thicker. As soon as a women gives birth the hair starts to shed back to its normal rate. So it’s not the prenatal vitamins. However, I will say that taking a high dose biotin supplement does make your hair grow faster even from my own personal use. I’m not sure if there are any studies to back this up. Worth a try for the desperate women.

      @Michelina you are incorrect and SCIENCE has proven that men and women who are not pregnant and have never been pregnant can increase the thickness and rate of retention thru vitamin supplementation and scalp massage. Women in various cultures from the beginning of time have used these methods for CENTURIES.

    I’ve been taking the vitabiotics brand of prenatal vitamins bought from superdrug for 2 months now (they have added omega 3). Along side this I snack on raw pumpkin seeds. I can’t stress enough how much this has reduced my hair loss, induced new hair growth and improved my skin/nails. I would Defo recommend this to anyone!!

      I always advise speaking to a doctor, one that is pro vitamins, since most of them are not. If you are going to take a prenatal vitamin, just try one that is iron free! If your hair is balding, have you checked your hormone levels or thyroid levels? I wouldn’t recommend trying a vitamin till you found out why your hair is thinning.

    Hi,I just found your blog and was really enjoying it till I found this. I am a physician and can tell you there is no scientific proof to prenatal vitamins= thick or healthier hair. I am shocked you would perpetuate this type of fiction. People are trusting you, spending money etc….. Pregnant women have thick beautiful hair b/c of the hormones. Full stop. Do you ever research these claims?

    I just ready our response that most doctors are against vitamins. Again not true. I am a doctor. Doctors are against false promises, vitamins have a place, are helpful and in some cases necessary. Most women are very low in iron, yet you say to take vitamins that are iron free? This is dangerous. Furthermore certain vitamins need other things to be absorbed well. For example folate can’t be absorbed without citrus. Your comments on diet seem to lack complete info. You also sound like you don’t like doctors. The makeup sections of your blog are excellent however.
