I'm thinking of taking prenatal vitamins for hair/etc (not pregnant). Is this safe?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Prenatals are safe

Generally speaking, taking prenatal vitamins are safe.
The extra folate (folic acid) can also help prevent birth defects, so prenatals are a very good idea when trying to conceive (before getting pregnant).
