7 Hair Vitamins to Help Your Hair Grow Longer and Thicker
If you already regret your spring chop, one of these vitamins for hair might be the answer
New York City dermatologist Dennis Gross, MD, says the number of patients coming to him with hair concerns is on the rise. "Sometimes it's due to stress, sometimes it's a thyroid problem," he says. But regardless of the cause, these patients all have one thing in common: "They all say the same thing: 'I wish I had the hair I had when I was 25,'" he says. And many of them are asking about vitamins for hair -- they're hoping to pop a magical pill to get that hair back.

So after extensive research, here are the most convincing vitamins for hair. Many of them blend together multiple ingredients -- like biotin and omegas -- for the best hair-growing potential. Read on to find out why you might want to take a hair vitamin -- whether you're troubled by hair loss or not.
