15. Helps Make Hair Shiny and Healthy
Vitamin B12 plays a role in helping to maintain the health of our hair, helping to prevent premature hair loss; dull, lifeless hair; color loss and slow hair growth. Because it’s so good for the hair Vitamin B12 is often added to hair care products, like shampoos and conditioners. Vitamin B12 is essential to the health of red blood cells, which carry oxygen to the cells, including the hair and the hair follicles. This helps to improve normal hair health and growth. Vitamin B12 is also required for the production of melanin, an amino acid which helps maintain the color of the pigments in the hair.
