Can a 17 year old take prenatal vitamins if not pregnant but to help with hair growth?

It is safe. It is safe for a non-pregnant woman of child bearing age to take a pre-natal vitamin. I'm not so sure it is going to help a whole lot with your hair growth. Hair growth depends on many factors, just one of them being adequate vitamin intake. So i wouldn't do this thinking it's the magic bullet to long hair.
