pre-natal vitamins and gelatin capsules can help it grow in stronger. As xan drinking lots of water and a healthy diet.

You should also know that hair is dead. At least the part of it you see, and that any product purports to "nourish." You can't nourish dead. It is the scalp, which is alive, and the hair follicles that are responsible for hair health. 

But of course the part you can see - the dead part - can be damaged (and so can the scalp), causing breakage. Hair falling out at the root is the issue to see a doc about. Breakage along the shaft (part you can see)? Lay off the chemical processing.

Buyer beware...lots of $$ to be made off of promises, promises.
