Is there such a thing as milk hair growth? Does milk have something to do with hair growth? The answer is definitely yes. In fact, milk has something to do with hair growth, in an affirmative way. Let us make a closer examination on how milk hair growth can affect our hair. First, let us try to draw back the possible connectivity with milk and hair growth. What is the composition of milk? Either taken directly from the cow or fortified with vitamin, milk can be a good source of calcium, protein, vitamin D, A, and B vitamins. All of these nutrients are essential to promote healthy hair and skin. For instance, protein is considered the building block of hair since the hair itself is naturally made of protein. Lack of protein would normally cause thinning of hair or a disruption in the normal hair growth cycle. Another composition of hair aside from protein is keratin. To be able to produce keratin, it is important there is sufficient calcium intake. Calcium is widely present in milk, and this nutrient would stimulate keratinization, a hair growth process. B vitamins such as B6 and B12, and biotin are also found in milk. Biotin is also essential in producing keratin and in preventing brittleness, while B6 and B12 aid in a healthier hair growth. Meanwhile, vitamins A helps in the adequate production of sebum, the oil produced by the scalp which serves as natural hair conditioner – adequate in the sense that oils are neither moderately produced resulting to dry hair nor excessively produced which could result to oily hair. Vitamin D, on the other hand, prevents hair loss. Isn’t this enough proof that milk could actually aid in growing a healthier and more beautiful hair? But of course, this is in the sense of milk hair growth through drinking milk. Is there any other way milk could help in enhancing hair growth. I didn’t thought so, until I came across this page from a popular social networking website that suggests milk is responsible for the shiny and vibrant hair of their models – but that is, pouring the milk onto the hair). Of course this is another story. As it is scientifically proven that milk when taken in could help promote hair growth through the absorption of milk nutrients, there is no any linkage that could be established between milk simply poured to the hair and a healthy hair growth. Thus, if you decide to use milk to improve your hair in general, might as well drink it. It could not only benefit your hair alone but your entire health as well.
