Vitamin B5 (Panthenol)

I am happy to share my latest discovery for daily hair maintenance. Vitamin B5, which I mentioned last year in a post about a protein conditioner pack. This is the missing link for my natural hair. I knew about it. I had it in my stash, but did not use it as a daily hair aid. It helps lock in moisture all day. I am looking at pictures of my hair that I thought was moisturized before B5, and there is no comparison. Black hair craves moisture and B5 will lock it in and define your curl.
I have been finger combing for 3 years. Since I started using B5 in my daily spritzer, I am able to use a tangle teezer for the first time without excessive breakage. I have added about 3 inches of length in 4 months which is about average, but my growth was never average because of breakage. I am using a detangler to groom my hair with better results than finger combing because of the vitamin B5 .
Finger combing is a great option but one of the down sides is mini knots and tangles that occur from loose hair fall that have to be cut or torn away as your hair develops length. And heaven forbid if you skip finger combing your style for a day. You will have a mountain of regret and extra hair fall to comb the day after.
That's all behind me now since I can use a tangle teezer without breakage. I was mostly concerned about hair loss from thinning and breakage. So now I get to see some length in the bargain too.

Does B5 come in multivitamins?

B-5 is a powder you see it a lot in shampoo and conditioners as Panthenol. I don't think it is in multi vitamins. The other B vitamins B-6, B-12 are in vitamins.
I bought my B-5 powder a couple of years ago after watching Chicoro the "Grow It" author on YouTube. Tucked it away and re-discovered how good it is.

thanks for the information. but I like to add up that it is not good as hair fall solution. Because i tried it but it is of no use in my case. One of my friends recommends me Regenepure Coupons . It not only solved my hair loss problem but also after using it my hair growth increases.
