Vitamin C for Hair
This is a well-documented antioxidant for the skin. It is well known that L-Ascorbic Acid is required for normal skin physiology (in smaller quantities). This concentration also acts as a preservative for the product and is commonly used in food preservation. The L form is the only form that can be utilized in the formation with L-Amino Acids into collagen and elastin. Low intake of vitamin C in your diet may result in dry or splitting hair, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Although hair loss isn't directly associated with a vitamin C deficiency, dry and splitting hair from a vitamin C deficiency may make your hair prone to hair loss and other hair-related conditions.
This product is part of our LabNaturals Skin Care line, but it is also a great antioxidant for the hair.
Directions: Apply 2 pumps every other night to scalp areas on dry hair around the temples and hairline. Rub in well, wait 5 minutes, then apply hair treatment. Alternate with Acetyl-Glutathione/Biotin/Vitamin E. Massage in well.
