No, I am not pregnant. But I have found pre natal vitamins at Wal mart and was wondering if they will do anything for hair growth. My daughters (both who have been pregant and One who is again) told me about them and I was wondering? I need a multivitamin anyway and one that will make your hair grow will add that much to the value. The question is "Will it hurt me since I am not pregnant"? Thanks for any advice! Debbie

Debbie,

I don't think it can possibly hurt you, no.

But quite honestly, I think it's pregnancy hormones that make pregnant womens' hair grow (apparently) quicker, not the vitamins. Although the vitamins can't possibly hurt.

The main difference between prenatals and regular multi vitamins are higher levels of folate and Iron. I'm not sure what, if any, link exists between those and hair growth.

You could always get pregnant though

Debbie...I would have to agree with Elissa!!!! I do think it is VERY important that an individual take a multi vitamin daily. In my personal experience with "Special" hair vitamins and such...my hair still grew at the same rate each month. As for my hair growth, pregnancy, and pre natal vitamins...My hair grew extremely fast! I agree again that it is most definantly hormonal.

well im taking prenatal pills right now, it was part of my new year's resolution. i understand what the others are saying about it being hormonal,but i have read other ppls experience without being pregnant and they said it does work. professional cheerleading teams also use them like the dallas cowboys or rockets cheerleaders for sure. but im hoping it will make a difference for my hair. other than hair growth, ive also heard that they make your skin clearer,softer, and slightly enhance your chest. i dunno bout that last one but i sure could use it!!!!

That, along with the one about crushing birth control pills and putting them in your shampoo to make your hair grow faster, are both untrue. Pregnancy hair growth is hormonal, and after women give birth then is the opposite; they start to loose alot of hair. So don't waste your time and money. It is not true.
 
But what do you say taqqi? Did you actually end up getting the longer locks and bigger boobs? We would all like an update.

Your body needs a complete source of essential vitamins to nourish and strengthen hair properly. An estimated 8 out of 10 people do not get enough essential vitamins from your daily diet. His hair is suffering. When your body is receiving a limited amount of essential vitamins that denies non-essential, ie systems., Hair growth, access to limited supply.

Vitamins are best for hair growth. They can give more strength to your hair. You can get vitamins from many vegetables and fruits.
