According to the statistics, the biggest cause of hair fall is a deficiency of proteins, vitamins and minerals in our body which can be a result of anemia, poor diet or some disease.

Besides this, the other big cause of hair fall is a hormonal imbalance in our body the common causes of hormonal imbalance in our body are pregnancy, menopause, a deficiency of thyroid hormones in our system and PCOS.

Nowadays in the youth, a big cause of hormonal imbalance is stress.

Besides this, many times hard water or water which has a lot of chlorine and chemicals in it can also lead to hair fall. Also, every shampoo is not suitable for every person and which shampoo will suit you perfectly will only be known by trial and error.

But for healthy hair, what is really essential is a balance of Vitamins & Minerals in the body. If we take in the adequate quantity of Vitamins & Minerals in the form of vitamin supplements and through a healthy diet then every type of hair fall is reduced and bought under control.

Along with this, if you take good care of your hair then 80-90% of people will observe reduced hair fall. 

In this post, I will be telling you about how to maintain health in your hair and also enable growth in them by using the right kind of Vitamins & Minerals, as also their correct usage.

Useful Vitamins For Healthy Hair

Vitamin C & Vitamin E

The first of these is Vitamin C & Vitamin E.

Both these Vitamins are powerful anti-oxidants. They protect hair from disease and also fortify the roots of the hair. 

Vitamin B

The other is Vitamin B of which the most important is Biotin Also called as Vitamin B7.

The protein which constitutes our hair is known as Keratin Biotin or Vitamin B7 aids in the formation of this protein Keratin, and when there is a shortage of Biotin in our system then our hair becomes thin and lifeless.

Vitamin B12, Folic Acid, Iron & Zinc

The third is Vitamin B12 Folic Acid, Iron & Zinc.

All these four are essential for the formation of blood in our body. If there is a shortage of blood in our system then Oxygen, which is essential for the health of our hair will not be able to reach the hair roots in an adequate quantity. This causes the hair roots to weaken and thus begins hair fall.


For our hair to grow and to remain healthy it is very important to consume protein in adequate quantities because our hairs are made of protein which is known as keratin.

All these vitamins, minerals and proteins stop the falling of hair and aid in hair growth they also make the roots of hair strong and also prevent premature whitening of hair.

The oil glands present in the root of hair also remain healthy when these vitamins and minerals are present which makes our hair shine and also prevents our hair from drying out.

Supplements/Medicines for Healthy Hair 

Now I will tell you the names of some supplements/medicines.

These medicines contain a combination of the above-mentioned vitamins and minerals and you can find these medicines easily at any medical store.

Many people consume only biotin capsules to prevent hair fall. However, in my experience, the cause of hair fall is often a result of a combined deficiency of many vitamins and minerals.

I will tell you the names of only Biotin Capsules, as well as pills which contain a combination of vitamins and minerals.

1. Bionid-Forte

The first is Bionid-Forte, by Nidus Pharma.

You should consume 1 tablet, daily after dinner for at least 2 months.

2. Biofair

The second medicine is Biofair, by Inventure Pharma.

This contains Biotin (Vitamin B7) and also Vitamin E, it contains both.

This tablet should also be taken once daily, after dinner, for at least 2 months.

3. Biotouch Total

The third is Biotouch Total, by Rhine Biogenics.

Besides Biotin, this contains Iron, Folic Acid, Zinc and Copper, amongst other minerals. This is a better supplement, in my opinion, this can also be consumed once daily after dinner for two months.

Other Medicines to Stop Hairfall

There are some other good medicines for hair fall such as Follihair by AHPL Pharma. This also contains a good combination of biotin, vitamins and minerals and Foliglo by Glenmark Pharma.

You can decide which medicine suits you then select one of them. You should consume 1 tablet of it daily after meals for at least 2-3 months but these medicines are quite expensive that is why I will tell you the names of some other medicines which are made by good companies and are not very expensive and also work well in reducing hair fall.

Cheap Medicines to stop hair fall and get healthy hair

These medicines contain a good mix of vitamins and minerals which keep hair healthy. These are Becadexamine Capsules by GSK Pharma.

You should take 1 capsule after breakfast and 1 capsule after dinner for at least 2/3 months for good results.

The next medicine is Polybion Capsules, by Merck Pharma.

You should take 1 capsule of this daily, after dinner for at least 2/3 months.

Now, the most important point which you all should understand well is that all these medicines are SUPPLEMENTS which means that you should consume these only as per requirement and once your hair fall stops you should stop consuming them.

These medicines are not food items that can be eaten all your life.

These medicines should only be consumed for a maximum of 2 or 3 months, and if your hair falls does not reduce after consuming these medicines for a month then you should go to a good hospital/doctor and have a thorough medical check-up done.

As you already know that for the formation of new hair, and for old hair to grow the body needs a good amount of protein. However, I am not in favor of making up for a protein deficiency by consuming protein supplements.

If your hair has stopped falling but they are not increasing or if you only have a problem of hair not growing adequately then the deficiency of protein by vegetarians should be made up for by consuming in good quantities daal black gram kidney beans milk curd and cottage cheese.

If you are non-vegetarian then you should consume good amounts of egg fish and meat to make up for the deficiency. 

Further, at least twice a week if you wash your hair and keep them clean, it helps in reducing hair fall. For this, one night prior to washing your hair mix 5/6 drops of Vitamin E oil in 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil and then apply it thoroughly in your hair.

This helps in reducing hair fall and it also helps to keep hair shiny. 

Final Words

I hope you have found my video useful and all that I have suggested about the intake of Vitamin and Mineral supplements and also include protein in your diet in good quantities then your hair fall will stop and you will find it easier to have long lush and shiny hair.
