Rupali, “Can only applying vitamin E hair care products be enough to stop my hair loss or to keep my scalp and hair healthy or problem free?

Or

There are two situations you may find in that case: 

 

In fast case,

Can you able to observe that so-called experts like salon hair stylists and hair experts always talk about the benefits of using vitamin E hair care products and they always try to prove you to use vitamin E hair care products for your hair for better hair and scalp health?

 

But the truth is only using vitamin E hair care products is not going to be beneficial for your hair. You need to take vitamin E-rich healthy foods along with using vitamin E hair care products for good hair and scalp health.

 

For example, your body is suffering from oxidative stress due to the deficiency of vitamin E in your body, and because of this reason, you face sudden hair loss(oxidative stress-related hair loss).

 

Now, you are scared about your hair health and you start using vitamin E hair care products for your hair to stop hair loss because of your expert advice.

 

Now told me one thing how can oxidative stress-related hair loss be cured by only using hair care products? Because the source of this problem is your body, not your hair or scalp.

 

So, the conclusion is you need to focus on your body and hair equally. Just you need to do is add vitamin E-rich foods to your diet and start using vitamin E hair care products for your hair to get maximum benefit and instant prevention.

 

Here is another case or possibility or consequence,” Suddenly you face oxidative stress-related hair loss due to your environment where you live your daily life.

 

For Examples, chemicals, radioactive radiation, smoking, polluted air, organic solvents, UV rays, etc. In that case, you need to use vitamin E hair care products to get relief from your hair and scalp-related problems.

 

Last but not least,

Now the question that may come to your mind is “how do you know why you have hair loss problems?”

To ensure why you have hair problems you need to consult with your health care provider about your hair and scalp or body condition. They can help you to determine it perfectly. 

 

Riyajul, “Are so-called natural or organic vitamin E hair care products chemical free?

Or

Is there any side effect of using chemical latent natural or organic vitamin E hair care products?” 

 

Hi, Riyajul here is your solution:

The answer to your first question:

 

Every day you may see some ads for so-called natural or organic vitamin E hair care products from brands some are new and some are old.

 

You must notice one thing all brands always trying to prove to you or shows you all-natural ingredients which contain in their products and they trying to hide or not goen show you how many harmful chemicals are contained in their hair care products.

 

According to curlmix.com,” Every natural or organic hair care products contain toxic ingredients or chemical latent.

Here is some example of toxic ingredients or harmful chemicals like Dimethicone, Polyethylene Glycol, Benzene, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Formaldehyde, Parabens, Propylene Glycol, Phthalates, Retinyl Palmitate, Fragrance.”

 

So, the answer is “no” because not all natural or organic vitamin E hair care products are chemical-free.

 

So, before going to choose any organic products you need to do your research. Because most natural or organic vitamin E hair care products are chemical latent.

 

Here is the answer to your second question:

When does it happen? It happens when you choose unknowingly a chemical latent organic or natural vitamin E hair care product without proper research.

“Sir I am mahek, I have a hair loss problem and I try several medications and products to treat it but still I am not able to treat it. Can you please suggest to me some treatment for my hair loss?”

I think you need to consult a dermatologist before going to take any medication.
