Default Prenatal?

I've heard lots of people say that prenatal vitamins help your hair grow SO much faster, does anyone have experience with this?

I found this to be true. I think it is supposed to be allvthe B vitamins. To be fair prenatal is really a misnomer. All women of childbearing years whether planning to conceive or not should take them. Ir so said my midwives and doctors. Lol. You could always try getting preggers too. Jk. Pregnancy messes with the growth cycle so all your hair, or most of it, gets stuck in the growth phase. Sadly you lose a bunch after baby arrives. But not anymore than you would've over the previous 10 months. I had a halo of baby hairs for a while. Not so pretty. Ok sorry for the ramble.

I found this to be true as well, since having my 3 kids and always taking those vitamins my hair has grown from just at my shoulders straightened to my bra strap curly, in the last 3 years. (My hair grows verrry slow usually) so I would say yes, that's true, at least for me anyway.

I don't know if it works, but consider that it is known that your hair grows at a much higher rate when you are pregnant (and very often a lot of hair falls out after you gave birth). Maybe that's why people think that your hair grows faster because of the prenatal vitamins.

The recommended daily dose of each vitamin is higher in prenatal vitamins than in multivitamins. So if you deficient or have a requirement for a higher dose of a particular vitamin than a prenatal vitamin will work better.
