Vitamin c helps to build a protein called collagen which is highly important to hair structure. This will play necessary roles of absorbing iron that keeps the locks strong and healthy.
A lack of zinc will cause changes in the protein structure of hair follicles which will lead to weakening of the structural integrity.
If you are low in Iron, you may feel that the texture of your hair and nails changes and can become dry and brittle.
Vitamin D boosts our immunity; it stimulates the cells growth and helps to create new hair follicles.
