3) Stock up on iron and vitamin C
Iron is essential for your body’s growth and development, and that includes hair. It’s a component of many proteins and enzymes that maintain good health, including hemoglobin, which transports oxygen in the bloodstream. Vitamin C actually helps your body absorb iron. Try taking an iron supplement with a glass of orange juice. Of course, speak to your doctor first.
