Becky with the good hair

 

 

Not all of us are blessed by the hair gods and even if we were most of the time we aren’t happy with what we have. We dye, add extensions, buy expensive hair products and styling tools. So when Khloe and Kylie Kardashian introduced the world to Sugar Bear Gummies people took notice. I wanna try! Order placed. Then I have to remind myself that I’m not a millionaire paid to look perfect every day, nor do I have hair and make-up stylists on the daily. But hey! It’s worth a shot.

For about $30 you get a month supply of vitamins. According to the website the dose is 2 gummies a day. Which is super easy to remember because they are delish! Each vitamin is flavored from natural berries and citrus fruits and has the perfect texture for a chewy vitamin. The website states that the gummy will “make your hair stronger, longer and shinier; enhancing the natural beatify of your gorgeous hair.” Vitamins are formulated using ingredients thought to “to promote faster hair growth, increased hair shine and reduce hair breakage.”

Here’s some of the ingredients…
Vitamin A (Palmitate)- Which is found in sweet potatoes, carrots and kale, and can contribute to the health of your skin and scalp by helping to promote your blood’s oxygen circulation. Increased oxygen circulation to the scalp helps to feed your scalp the vital nutrients your hair needs for longer and stronger hair. Vitamin A has antioxidant properties that helps to protect your hair follicles from problems such as excessive shedding or hair fall. If you suffer from a dry scalp, you’d love Vitamin A for its ability to moisturize the scalp by supporting your body’s natural oil production (known as sebum).
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)- Vitamin C is vital for your body to develop collagen, which helps your hair to grow stronger from the inside out. This youth activating antioxidant helps to protect your scalp from damage by combating free-radicals. Free-radicals can cause hair loss over time. All successful hair care formulas contain Vitamin C due to its amazing hair growing properties.
Vitamin E- Vitamin E is essential for blood circulation. Besides healing and protecting your hair, it can also help with fine lines and wrinkles on your skin. Like Vitamin A, this vitamin helps to bring enough oxygen to your scalp to promote healthy hair growth. This rich antioxidant also acts as a safeguard against damage to your hair follicles. When taken in combination with Vitamin C, your hair can improve its strength and elasticity.
Vitamin B-6- Vitamin B-6 is a great vitamin to take for hair loss. By helping your body to form cells and bring oxygen to your scalp, your hair follicles will be able to produce healthier hair. Foods such as sunflower seeds, chicken, and tuna contain Vitamin B-6. When taken with zinc, the two work together to help block a substance in our bodies called DHT, which can cause hair loss.
Folic Acid- Folic Acid is a fascinating vitamin that is crucial for your body to repair your DNA. This vitamin actively supports cell division so that your hair follicles can produce healthy hair. Reducing hair loss and preventing thinning is what Folic Acid does best! It is best to take Folic Acid with Vitamin B-12. Having a deficiency in one of these vitamins can cause excessive hair breakage or hair loss. To keep the balance, be sure to take both of these marvelous vitamins together!
Vitamin B-12- Vitamin B-12 gives an amazing boost to your hair growth by supporting your body’s energy process and helping to form red blood cells. Red blood cells are responsible for feeding oxygen to your scalp, which helps your hair to grow longer. People who take Vitamin B-12 notice an increase in energy and vitality.
Biotin- Biotin is one of the most important vitamins you can take to promote hair growth. Biotin supports the health of your scalp by producing fatty acids which in turn helps the health of your hair. A deficiency in essential fatty acids produces symptoms such as dry, scaly or flaky skin, dandruff, dry, brittle hair or eczema, according to the ProHealth website, all of which may lead to hair loss. Eating foods high in biotin or taking a biotin supplement will help combat hair loss due to a poor diet. When you take biotin, you are also helping to support your hair’s keratin, making your hair stronger. Keratin is what your hair, skin, and nails are made of. Taking biotin with other B vitamins will create a powerful combination to help combat hair loss. If you are prone to breakouts, we recommend taking a biotin supplement with Vitamin B-5. Biotin when combined with B-5 helps to reduce the chances of acne or breakouts in the skin.
Pantothenic Acid- Vitamin B-5 helps to stimulate hair growth by supporting your hair’s natural keratin. It helps to replace hair that was lost due to excessive shedding or breakage. Without Vitamin B-5, it would be difficult for your hair to grow at a steady rate. The structure of your hair and skin depends on this wonderful vitamin to stay healthy. Like other B vitamins, Vitamin B-5 nourishes your follicles from the inside out and is responsible for the shine and luster of your hair.
Coconut Oil- This popular oil has been used worldwide to help support hair and scalp health. Because of its similarity to our scalp’s natural oils, coconut oil is one of the few oils that can actually moisturize your hair. This helps to prevent breakage and hair loss. You can also massage it into your scalp to treat dry scalp issues and to moisturize your roots.

 

 For me Biotin was hard to take as a supplement alone. Hair grew allllllll over my body, eyebrows, leg hair, even the forsaken mustache!!! So, I’m hoping that this multivitamin doesn’t do the same, it does have about 5000mcg of biotin which is a normal dose. For some biotin can have a more serious side effect. People have reported hair loss, dry skin, fatigue, depression, rash around eyes or mouth. So if you have any of these side effects do not take this supplement.

Some don’t agree with the effects that are being reported. According to a Sydney-based nutritionist Lyndi Cohen, these cute little blue gummies aren’t all they are cracked up to be (major sigh).When interviewed by news.com/au Lyndi stated “I think we’re quite obsessed with getting healthy, and the idea that you could thicken your locks and get really perfect, shiny hair just by adding in a multivitamin is too good to be true.” Lyndi states that no vitamin is going to change your DNA.“We’re naturally predetermined to have a certain amount of thickness to our hair. It’s about accepting what you’ve been given and not expecting that if you just eat healthier that you’re going to end up with a Victoria’s Secret kind of mane, it just doesn’t work that way.” Dangit Lyndi! So what the peasants like us with frizzy, thin, greasy hair do?! Ms Cohen tell us that “Protein is actually the building block of hair, amino acids [what protein gets broken down into] are what your hair is made up of. This isn’t going to be a source of protein in any respect, in fact the main ingredient is glucose. You’re going to get a far better result by eating lean meats, seeds, nuts, eggs, tofu and healthy omega 3s like oily fish. The other thing is that it’s missing iron, which is another key vitamin for hair growth.” Doesnt sound too hard either.

Lets given these cute little delicious gummies a try to 1 month and see what happens, then we can try Lyndi Cohen’s way, or just get extensions.
