What Supplements Strengthen Hair?

Read Transcript

A lot of women patients come in and ask me about hair and damaged hair and weak hair. It just seems like our environment, the pollution, all the sprays and things we use in our hair are very damaging to the hair and the hair follicle. One of the first things I think about in terms of supplementation for weak hair, believe it or not, is blackcurrant oil.

Blackcurrant has a lot of gamma-linolenic acid, also known as GLA and this particular fatty acid is wonderful to support the hair follicle, to lower inflammation and to help the hair grow stronger. So it's a really wonderful way to help prevent thinning and help keep the damage from accumulating and causing that thin hair.
