In the quest for gorgeous hair, you may have stumbled upon those who swear by vitamins for hair to give your locks that edge. Because we’re hair-obsessed and it shows, we’ve taken a closer look at the essential hair vitamins offered by Kérastase treatments to grow healthy, strong locks and make styling a breeze to boot. And the best part is, it all starts straight from the shower- here’s how to make the smart choice when it comes to what vitamins are good for hair.


Vitamins For Hair: What You Need To Know

There are a variety of vitamins for hair out there, each harnessed to benefit your locks with their own unique properties, adding shine, luster and manageability, among other advantageous qualities. You can up the ante with your haircare arsenal by including the following vitamins for hair into your routine, easily found in various trans-formative Kérastase products. Remember to consult your stylist to determine what your hair is missing and what vitamins are good for hair, in order to ensure your hair is loaded up on the nutrients it’s calling out for.

Here are the vitamins your locks definitely won’t turn its nose up at.


  • What does it offer hair?

    Iron is commonly named as one of the vitamins for hair growth. It helps to stimulate the scalp and activate bloodflow, two actions that can help kick start the hair follicles and help you grow luscious locks.

  • Where can I find it?

The easiest place to add iron, one of the important vitamins for hair growth, is in your haircare routine with Kérastase Couture Styling L'Incroyable Blowdry Hair Créme.This product can be applied to damp hair before styling. It helps to fight frizz and provides thermo-protection, while creating endless looks in no time, ideal for those with thick and unruly hair.


Vitamin E and Zinc

  • What do they do?

These vitamins for hair are responsible for two things: zinc plays an important role in hair repair and is associated with fighting hair-loss, while vitamin E is an antioxidant that does wonders for your locks, helping to keep them strong and healthy.


  • Where can I find them?

You can find both vitamin E and zinc in Kérastase Reflection Bain Chromatique Shampoo. This sulphate-free shampoo is designed for colour-treated hair, gently removing impurities from your locks while respecting your colour and protecting it from external aggressors that can contribute to fade. For something a little stronger, try Kérastase Reflection Bain Chromatique Shampoo Riche. Ideal for those who need an extra dose of protection, it contains UV filters and other ingredients to make your colour look radiant and shiny. Follow up with Kérastase Reflection Fondant Chromatique Conditioner, a multi-protecting conditioner for colour-treated hair that helps to revive your locks and keep your colour long-lasting- just what the stylist ordered!



 To get more vitamin E in your haircare routine, keep an eye out for products that contain camellia oil. This precious oil is revered for its nourishing qualities comprising of vitamin E to smooth and calm stubborn strands. This creates the ideal conditions for high shine- a hair goal for everyone. One such product is Kérastase Elixir Ultime L'Huile Original Hair Oil. This multi-use oil can be used as a pre-cleanse to remove any impurities, as a pre-blow dry for additional protection from heat or as a finish to control frizz and add smoothness and style to your strands.



  • What does it do?

    Just like our bodies, protein is essential for protecting hair and growing strong, healthy locks, making it one of the important vitamins for hair. Heat styling and other processes can take their toll, interfering with the hair fibre, which can lead to breakage, split ends and damage. So if it’s looking a little worse for wear than normal, your tresses could definitely use some protein to whip them back in shape!


  • Where is it found?

To dose up on protein, try the Kérastase Resistance range which includes essential vitamins for hair and was created to repair weak, over-processed and damaged hair. This range includes Kérastase Resistance Soin Premier Thérapiste Conditioner, a conditioner designed for thin hair that can be used before or after cleansing to add protection to your hair during the washing process. It helps to protect the hair fibre, equipping it with the strength it needs to thrive.


B-vitamins like biotin

  • What are the benefits?

Biotin is a b-vitamin that is associated with hair growth, excellent news for anyone who’s locks are looking less lustrous than before. This handy ingredient is often found in hair-loss treatments, and for good reason: it helps to carry nutrients from the scalp to the hair follicles, working hard to facilitate hair growth. This makes it a must-have ingredient in your haircare routine.


  • What product should I use?

For your biotin fix, try Kérastase Densifique Bain Densité. This lightweight shampoo is designed to amp up your hair's density, and as it contains biotin, can help you grow healthier hair. If you’re all about more resistant locks and definable texture (and let’s be honest, who isn’t?) add this shampoo to your haircare routine, stat!
