I know this may sound weird but I was talking to my sister in law the other day about hair products and she told me a story about one of her friends that just got back from Texas. She told me that her friend was sitting on the plane with a girl with long beautiful 4b hair and she asked her what her secret was to growing her hair long. The girl told her that she crushes up prenatal vitamins and puts them in her shampoo. Needless to say, when she told me this I thought: "What the heck?
". We've always been told that topical creams/ ointments/ growth aides cannot grow hair so why is it that this girl who once had about 2 inches of hair on her head is now at APL? Please offer some insight ladies because the PJ in me wants to run to Walmart and buy some prenatal vitamins right now. TIA.
Hmm, vitamins in shampoo. The problem I see is that you would have to grind the vitamins into a very fine powder in order to get it to mix well into your shampoo. That's not really easy. The other problem I see is I don't know if pulverizing the vitamins would make your hair/scalp absorb the nutrients.
Another issue is frequency of use. How often was this woman using the vitamin shampoo and what else was she doing to her hair - heat, no heat, protective styles, relaxer, no relaxer, etc?
Having said all that, I doubt it would hurt anything to mix some vitamins into your shampoo or conditioner, but you might want to look for something that will mix easier, like a liquid formula or a finely powdered vitamin. Good luck!!!
