Its antioxidant properties could help reduce the amount of stress and free radicals that cause the hair to break down.

There is some evidence that shows that vitamin E can help prevent hair loss. More research is still necessary to determine how vitamin E affects hair loss.

According to some research, vitamin E can help improve the shine that the hair loses as a result of damage. Chemicals, heat, and other styling products can all damage the hair. You will find that many brands contain vitamin E in their products for exactly that reason. A person can also restore shine using oils, such as argan or olive oil.
