Hair supplements have gained immense popularity in the past few years and for good reason! Post covid, excess hair loss is a concern for many. These formulas are specifically crafted to provide essential nutrients that promote hair growth and scalp health.
It’s important to note that excess hair shedding can be triggered by many factors. Stress, hormone imbalances and nutrient deficiencies are most common for women. A health provider can provide more insight.
As a hair extension specialist, and a nerd who needs to know the science behind how products work- I recommend two hair supplements to my guests Goldie locks and Nutrafol.
Nutrafol is the #1 Dermatologist recommended supplement for hair growth. It has been clinically proven to target the root causes of hair thinning and focus on filling in nutrients gaps. Nutrafol has a womens formula, postpartum formula, womens balance formula for women 45+, and mens formula.
In a 6 month study, 90% of women saw overall improvement, 86% had improved hair growth, and 84% had less shedding while taking the Women’s Supplement.
Goldie locks supplements use high quality natural ingredients including collagen, rosemary, ashwagandha and turmeric.
Collagen helps to encourage hair growth and strengthens your hair follicle, resulting in less shedding. help strengthen the circulation needed to feed your hair follicles.
Rosemary helps by increasing cell turnover at the scalp level, giving your scalp a healthy foundation.
Ashwagandha reduces inflammation in your body and helps to alleviate scalp itch and dandruff.
And the superstar of the show is turmeric. Turmeric is a natural DHT blocker and counters the overproduction of DHT directly. Overproduction of the DHT hormone will inevitably affect your hair growth cycle.
by shrinking your hair follicles and making it difficult for them to produce new hair.
Goldie locks also has a supplement option that is enhanced with CBD. CBD within your hair growth supplement helps to support overall wellness, reduced anxiety levels, reduced inflammation and pain, and get better sleep. Win Win!
90% of women experience less hair shedding, and 81% noticed increased energy.
There are certain situations where hair growth is not possible through supplementation. In the case of genetic hair loss or If a follicle has closed, been scarred, or not generated a new hair in years, then a new hair growth unfortunately may not be possible.
Results will take time, generally 3-6 months. Consistency is key here. The dosage is 4 capsules a day. I personally split this into two doses, one in the morning and one at night. If you forget a couple days, don’t stress, just get back on track and maybe set a reminder in your phone!
