As a rule, any deficiency of vitamins and minerals in our body leads to a decrease in hair growth and an increase in hair weakening and loss. If you want your hair to be strong and elastic, proper beauty care is not enough — there has to be treatment from the inside. Shilajit comes to save the day.
Today we are not particularly attentive to hair care. Think of how thoroughly you wash your hair. How many times a week do you dry it? It is how we treat our hair every day. However, the appearance of your hair may show that you are experiencing some internal problems that require close attention. How does it work when it comes to shilajit benefits for hair?
WHICH ELEMENTS ARE ESSENTIAL FOR HAIR?
First of all, your hair needs to be nourished with nutrients not so much from the outside as from the inside. To achieve this, you need to provide your body with all the necessary vitamins and minerals. This is how you can accelerate hair growth, eliminate hair loss and improve appearance in general.
Your hair firstly needs B vitamins: B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B6 (nicotinic acid, Pantothenic acid, pyridoxine), B7 (biotin), B8 (inositis), B9 (folic acid), B12 (cyanocobalamin). B vitamins are responsible for hair growth and its deficiency can lead to hair loss. Also, B vitamins make hair strong, elastic, and shiny.
A vitamins (retinol, beta-carotene), E (tocopherol), C (ascorbic acid) also have influence on the hair condition. Lack of these vitamins can cause hair to fall out, split, or become dull and brittle.
Also, microelements are necessary when we talk about hair treatment: magnesium, silicon, molybdenum, sulfur, iron, zinc, selenium, phosphorus.
WHY CAN'T I JUST TAKE A MULTIVITAMIN COMPLEX?
There are many vitamin complexes aimed at preventing hair loss and stimulating its growth. However, synthetic vitamins are more harmful than helpful for your body. Taking artificial vitamins creates an increased load on your kidneys and liver, violating the necessary balance in the body and, in some cases, might cause hair loss.
WHAT IS THE SHILAJIT EFFECT ON HAIR?
From the inside
Due to its rich content, shilajit improves metabolism and takes care of the blood flow that delivers nutrients to hair follicles. Components included in shilajit have a positive effect on hair and, what is more important, on a scalp. As a result, it reduces fragility, accelerated growth, and improves the appearance of your curls.
Fulvic acid, an essential component of the resin, restores the electrical potential of cells, increases the permeability of cell membranes, and has antioxidant properties. These processes are involved in the stimulation of hair regrowth.
Thus, the use of natural shilajit contributes to:
- improvement of blood flow in hair follicles
- accelerated growth
- awakening of inactive hair bulbs
- strengthening the structure of strands from roots to tips
- reduced sebum
By taking shilajit daily, you invest in improving your hair appearance. If treatment shows good results, the positive changes will be noticeable by hair condition.
To use, just mix the resin (0.5 or 1g) with a hot beverage of your choice and drink it two times a day to feel and see the result. To enhance the effectiveness of shilajit, use herbal broth and infusions instead of water or tea.

- shilajit is not recommended for people with sensitive skin since there is a possibility of allergic reactions
- it is better to consult a doctor, regardless of the purpose and specifics of the problem
