How Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) Keeps Your Hair Healthy

Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) is crucial for healthy hair because your body needs it to produce the red blood cells that carry oxygen to your hair follicles, plus it plays a role in DNA synthesis and affects your body’s use of proteins, which it needs to build hair.

5 Tips for Wearing & Styling Thin Hair With a Scrunchie

Fine hair and scrunchies are not always naturally compatible. Scrunchies don’t always grip as strong as a hair tie because of the fabric and hole, and this can lead to the scrunchie slipping.  When it comes to breakage, according to Long Island Beauty School and OGLE School, thin and fine hair, especially textured, is more likely to break.  Because breakage is more noticeable with thin hair, you’ll want to reduce friction which means silk scrunchies over cotton.

Even though silk slides, you don’t have to settle for other fabrics.  That’s where this guide comes in!

Aloe Vera Gel and Leaves Are Great for Your Hair

Aloe vera is one of the best herbs for healthy hair thanks to its anti-inflammatory and moisturizing benefits, plus it’s packed with important nutrients for hair growth including vitamins A and C, as well as folic acid. You can get aloe’s benefits by eating the leaves as part of your diet, or by using the juice in a gel, and even making a hair mask.

Fun fact: The aloe plant in a gel or lotion form provides a healthy dose of vitamin C since you absorb this antioxidant better through your skin than from your diet.
