Vitamin E is a fat-soluble nutrient that you can get from many food sources as well as in supplements. It is best known for its antioxidant properties that help reduce free radical damage and protect the body’s cells. It is vital for maintaining healthy skin and a strong immune system.

However, recent research has shown vitamin E to turn frizzy, damaged, unmanageable hair into beautiful locks worth showing off on your instagram handle.

So how does Vitamin E help your hair?

  • Reduces hair-loss:
    Vitamin E supplements have been found to improve hair growth in people with hair loss. It’s thought that the vitamin’s antioxidant properties helped reduce oxidative stress in the scalp, thus resulting in a more healthy growth of hair.

  • Improve circulation in your scalp:
    It has been discovered that vitamin E may increase blood flow, which is said to improve hair health.

  • Balance oil production:
    Vitamin E is important for creating a protective barrier on the skin’s surface. This barrier helps lock in moisture and keep your scalp healthy and moisturised.
