Fact or Fiction: Do Prenatal Vitamins Help Hair Growth?

For the longest time, advice has been passed around that prenatal vitamins are great to take if you want hair growth.

It is also naturally found in vegetables, legumes, berries, goat and cow's milk, almonds, and eggs. Read the rest of my article at Daily Glow.
