Do you look at someone else’s luscious, long tresses and feel a tinge of jealousy laced with regret as your own looks dull & frizzy? It is a common reaction with people facing hair problems- small or big!

So, what can you do in order to achieve shiny, lustrous, healthy hair? Hair growth is a complex process as it depends on a number of varied factors like hormones, genes and environment, combined with quality of diet. A balanced diet, which fulfills the nutrient needs of the hair follicles completely, is the key factor for their growth too. Consequently, one of the prime requirements of the strands to grow well, is a nutritional diet, which contains all the essential vitamins and minerals.

A nutritional deficiency, lacking adequate vitamins has been seen as the main trigger of unhealthy hair and hair loss too. If seeking hair treatment, it is crucial to develop awareness about which vitamins help your mane and how to incorporate them in your diet.

#1. B-Vitamins:

Commonly known as vitamin B complex, which possesses all eight B vitamins, is considered very effective in healthy growth of hair. It promotes cell growth and division, a factor which is essential for the good health of the strands. It also helps create red blood cells which are responsible for carrying nutrients and oxygen to the scalp and follicles, indispensable for hair growth.

The takeaway: It is a water-soluble vitamin that should be replenished everyday by incorporating it in your diet. Rich sources of B vitamins are- leafy greens, whole grains, meat, eggs, nuts, soybeans, etc.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.

My low hair density problem was explained very nicely, and some solutions were suggested. The solutions were fantastic. If you have any such issues, I recommend that you come and make an appointment. There was a lot of care and attention displayed by their staff in handling my hair fall issue. Similarly, the receptionists are both friendly and courteous, and the atmosphere is clean and fresh. This clinic deserves 5 stars.
