Although we turn to shampoos, masks and treatments to treat hair concerns, we must also remember that addressing issues from the inside out is one of the best routes. Hair vitamins are great for adding into your haircare routine to help treat signs of weakness, thinning, dehydration and dullness, and go hand in hand with your favourite products.

Which are the best hair vitamins?

Hairfinity Volume Builder Amino Acid Booster

If you have thin, fine or limp hair, you will love Hairfinity Volume Builder Amino Acid Booster Capsules.

Helping to support healthy hair growth all the way from the root to the tip, the hair vitamins contain a blend of cysteine and methionine to support fibre stucture, as well as lysine, arginine and taurine to support follicular health.

They are also great if you are suffering from hair breakage and weakness, as the combination of ingredients helps to improve strength and elasticity.

The best part? They are cruelty-free, and contain no gluten, soy or GMO's.

Hairburst Vitamins for New Mums

We all know that pregnancy can have a huge impact on the skin and body, but did you know that it can also radically affect your hair?

The Hairburst Vitamins for New Mums can be taken pre, during and post-pregnancy to help keep your locks in perfect condition when your body is going through intense hormonal changes.

They contain a blend of vitamins, minerals and nutrients, such as biotin and B Vitamins, which help to not only keep the hair strengthened and healthy, but also work to combat depleting energy levels and fatigue.

Imedeen Hair and Nail Tablets

Imedeen's Hair and Nail Tablets are specially formulated with a blend of healthy-hair ingredients including zinc, biotin and B-Vitamins to help keep your locks beautifully shiny, full, nourished and strong.

The great thing about these supplements is that they are gluten, gelatin and preservative-free, so are suitable for vegetarians, which can be hard to find when searching for supplements.

Viviscal Maximum Strength Supplements

The Viviscal Maximum Strength Supplements might be expensive, but we think they're worth every penny.

Formulated with key nutrients biotin and zinc, the capsules are also fortified with the brand's uniqye complex, known as AminoMar C™, which is rich in protein, marine extracts, silica and Vitamin C for all-round healthy hair growth.

One of the best hair vitamins we have tried, they really do give incredible results, with celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow even singing their praises.

Philip Kingsley Tricho Complex

Philip Kingsley was a renowned trichologist, meaning what he didn't know about hair wasn't worth knowing about.

The brand's Tricho Complex Capsules are a blend of vitamins, minerals and nutrients that help to encourage healthy hair growth and keep your locks soft, shiny and strong.

Key ingredients include biotin, iron, selenium and panthothenic acid, which are all essential to maintain hair that looks and feels its best. Plus, the capsules are also suitable for vegetarians.

We find these are one of the best all-rounder vitamins for healthy hair and can be used no matter your hair type or concern.

Phyo Phytophanere Capsules

Perfect for anyone experiencing thinning or weakening hair, Phyto's Phytophanere Capsules are packed with a blend of vitamins and minerals to strengthen damaged and brittle fibres and plump them back up.

A blend of B2, B5, B6, B8, C and E Vitamins are all included, as well as essential fatty acids from natural plant sources to ensure hair stays strong and healthy.

These also work wonders on anyone suffering from weakened or brittle nails so are a great 2-in-1 option.

OUAI Dry Hair Supplement

Dry hair better beware with OUAI's Dry Hair Supplements. Hailing from haircare queen Jen Atkin, the supplements are packed with Vitamin E, biotin, silica, and omegas 3 and 6 to help replenish lost moisture and keep the hair hydrated and healthy.

The supplements also promise results within 90 days for longer, stronger and shinier locks, which feel super soft.

If you suffer from an oily scalp or locks, you will prefer OUAI's Oily Scalp Supplements.

Myvitamins Biotin

Biotin is one of the most important vitamins for healthy hair as it helps to counteract thinning fibres, therby keeping your hair full and thick. The mineral generally comes from eggs, salmon and leafy greens, but sometimes we can be left a little deficient, which is where the Myvitamins Biotin Supplements come into play.

You only need to take one capsule per day as each one contains a blend of 10mg of biotin, which accounts for 200% of your recommended daily intake.

NIOXIN Recharging Complex Supplements

Packed with a blend of fortifying nutrients, NIOXIN's Recharging Complex Supplements are made with zinc, iron and biotin to help support healthy hair growth.

Free from gluten and GMO's, the tablets not only support scalp and hair health but also promote clearer, brighter skin and stronger nails.
