Many women experience excessive curl loss over the course of their lifetime. While some curl loss is perfectly normal and in fact should be expected there are times when you can lose much more than is normal.
What causes curl loss?
Scientists aren’t entirely sure of the exact cause of significant curl loss but it seems there are a few contributing factors. Increases in stress, poor nutrition, lack of sleep, and hormonal imbalances can all lead to thinning hair.
If you’ve ruled out any underlying health causes, changed your diet, and increased your water intake but are still losing curls, you might want to try out these vitamins that can help enhance curl growth.
Vitamin A: found in foods like carrots, vitamin A helps with cell regeneration. It also helps support healthy eyesight.
Vitamin C: found in citrus fruits, vitamin C helps support a healthy immune system. If you have something attacking your system it can make it difficult for your curls to grow. Vitamin C can help boost your immunities and give your curls extra strength.
Vitamin D: you can get your fix by adding protein rich eggs to your diet. This will help you build stronger curls from the inside out.
Vitamin E: this is another vitamin that can help with cellular repair. Many curlies apply it straight to their curls as a carrier oil to reap the benefits of this renewing vitamin. It also works to help heal scars and stretch marks.
Vitamin B3: chomp on an ear of golden corn to increase your vitamin B3. Women especially need vitamin Bs to maintain a healthy body so don’t be shy about adding more of this into your diet.
