I'm trying to grow my hair out and people tell me that taking pre-natal vitamins helps it grow really fast. Is it okay to take when not pregnant?

I'm trying to grow my hair out and people tell me that taking  pre-natal vitamins helps it grow really fast. Is it okay to take when not pregnant?

Totally OK: It's best to take pre-natal vits BEFORE one becomes pregnant, as they're most important the first 2 weeks of pregnancy and many women don't know they're pregnant the first 2 weeks. Thus ALL women of childbearing age who are sexually active should take pre-natals preventively. Pre-natals are a multivit. with a limited amount of Vit A (too much A bad if pregnant). I advise multivits for everybody. ...Read more

Your choice: Most people who take multivitamins probably derive no benefit from them, especially if their diet and sun exposure are normal.

I am 17 years, 170 m, 55 kg, I have hair loss, is there any specific diet i should follow or any vitamins i should take, I also have dandruff ?

Manage your dandruff: Aggressively. See if you can use a basic dandruff shampoo alternating with ketoconazole. You'll need to get physician guidance here. If after getting the dandruff cared for, you still have hair loss at age 17, have a dermatologist evaluate you. I trust you are euthyroid. Food choices / diet has little to do with most health issues despite all the huckstering. Good luck on managing this. ...Read more
