Celebrity and Hair Vitamins

Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Jennifer Aniston, it seems that in the world of the rich and famous, very little comes down to genetics, and that includes hair. Although hair extensions along with good genes are what give these celebrities their luscious locks, more and more are crediting hair vitamins with supplying them the with the gorgeous tresses they so love to show off on the red carpet.

The secret is out, and more and more are attributing their hair to vitamins. Having numerous styles can take a toll on celebrities hair, which is why they tout the miracles hair vitamins. Whether is is Kim Kardashian proclaiming the miracle that is Hairfinity, Kylie Jenner, and Sugarbears or Jennifer Aniston and Viviscal, hair vitamins seem to be popping up all over fashion magazines

So, how do they work? And more importantly, do they work?

Biotin is a must have vitamin for those who want strong, healthy skin, nails and hair.  Also known as Vitamin K, this vitamin is responsible for maintaining the health of hair, skin, and nails. In regards to hair, it acts as a protectant and adds moistures to dry hair or a flaky scalp. The results are mixed, with many professionals doubting their effectiveness and believe it is more about companies trying to weld a profit from these vitamins. Most important, they believe, is ingesting these vitamins the natural way. Salmon, berries, and leafy greens are a much healthier way to get those locks.

So what of the vitamins that the celebrities tout? Well, Hairfinity contains a massive amount of Biotin which for some can have unpleasant side effects, such as acne. Also, bottles come in 30 day supply packs. One pill a day. That can become quite the costly investment. Viviscal is drug-free and contains marine minerals and proteins. It acts as a stimulant to your current cells while repairing those that need it.

Bottom line, will these vitamins harm you? Most likely not. However, like all pills, take with caution.

Do your research and also remember that the people touting these pills (ahem, Kardashian and Jenners) are receiving a pretty penny just for promoting the brand name. It is also important to remember that they have the luxury of stylists, genetics, and a lot of money. So while it doesn’t hurt to try, know that the product will not automatically give you the hair of your dreams.  For further info on vitamins such as Viviscal check out
