Hair Supplements for Men: What to Look for and Why

Hair loss might be common in men, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to accept. In fact, going thin on top can give a guy’s confidence a real kick and can often be more devastating than they let on to.

Which is why it’s no surprise more and more men are turning to hair loss solutions such as plugs and transplants. 

But for those seeking a less invasive way to get a thicker, healthier and more lustrous head of hair they may opt for a supplement instead.

With so many options on the market, today though how do you know which supplement you should be choosing to help boost your head of hair?

The key is in the ingredients list - which can be pretty daunting if you don’t have a clue what you are looking for. 

So, to simplify matters we’ve listed some of the main ingredients you’ll want to see in your supplement when it comes to caring for your hair.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is vital for hair growth as it helps cells, including hair cells, grow. In addition, vitamin A helps skin glands make sebum, which is an oily substance that moisturises the scalp and keeps hair looking and feeling healthy. 

It’s important to note however that too much vitamin A can also work against you and can contribute to hair loss, so if you’re concerned about your levels you may want to consult a doctor first. 

Zinc

Zinc deficiency and hair loss commonly come hand in hand. 

Zinc helps collagen formation and regulates the skin’s oil glands including those around hair follicles. Zinc also protects hair from free radical damage.

Vitamin C

It’s not just your skin that can be affected by damaging free radicals, your hair can too.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect you and your hair from oxidative stress caused by free radicals. 

Collagen is also important for healthy hair and vitamin C plays an important role in creating this protein. 

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is also an antioxidant, so just like vitamin C, it can prevent damaging oxidative stress. In addition to supplements, you can also add more vitamin E to your diet by eating leafy green vegetables like spinach and avocados and almonds too.

Selenium 

Shine boosting selenium promotes hair growth and helps eliminate dry skin so that dandruff can be a thing of the past. The antioxidant enzymes within selenium prevent damage to hair follicles from the likes of UV rays and pollution.  

Flaxseed oil

Flaxseed oil is incredibly rich in omega 3 fatty acids and prevents inflammation and dandruff too. Flaxseed oil also stimulates hair follicles so that hair growths thick and strong.  

Lumity Morning and Night Supplement 

While there is no substitute for a healthy, balanced diet, you can give it an all-round boost and better your hair at the same time too, by adding Lumity Day and Night-time Supplements to your daily regime. 

The new men’s formula has an impressive list of ingredients including selenium, flaxseed oil, vitamin E, zinc and Vitamin A. Given that all of these natural ingredients aide hair health it makes sense to make Lumity part of your continued quest to be your best self yet. 

Ways to prevent hair loss

Aside from a healthy diet and a supplement, there are other ways you can limit hair loss naturally too.

 - head massage using Lumity’s Skin Nutrients Facial Oil
