Y’all know a girl’s gotta do anything and everything for happy and healthy hair, nails and skin. But when it comes to beauty, it is essential that we take good care of ourselves not only on the outside, but on the inside as well. True beauty, comes from within, am I right people? Sometimes all these beauty products that we use on a daily basis need a little boost so that we get the best possible results and maintain a nice and healthy appearance.
As a person that has quite an unhealthy diet (honestly if there was a pizza rehab facility I would need to sign up for it) I sometimes need to rely on supplements to get all the nutritional goods that I’m not getting from my food. At the same time, I absolutely hate taking any sort of tablets because I find it really hard to swallow them. It’s literally a struggle.
If you follow celebs on Instagram, you might see hair vitamins advertised left, right and centre, especially cute looking hair gummies that would wanna make you eat them like a bag of Haribos. But do they actually work? Well, as a person who doesn’t mind taking supplements and is constantly looking to improve the look of her hair, I decided to jump on the gummies bandwagon, try them out for a month and see if they’re as good as those Instagram ads say they are.
What are they?
Out of all the chewable vitamins out there I went for the ones from the brand Hairburst just because I spotted them in Superdrug so it was really easy to pick them up and not have to wait to order things online, wait for them to arrive at my doorstep, etc.
The Hairburst chewable hair vitamins are supposed to be ‘a new tasty way to grow your hair’. They contain key ingredients such as Biotin, Selenium, Zinc, B5, B6 & B12 to help with strength and elasticity and also to prevent hair breakage, which for me that’s a big issue. They taste like strawberry and blackcurrant and they are 100% chewable. If you’re like me and have a hard time swallowing tablets, then the gummy texture is going to save your life and make the taking supplements process so much easier.
The vitamins are free from all the bad things like artificial colours, milk, lactose, yeast, porcine, gluten or fish. However, and this is something that doesn’t make me really happy, they do contain sugar, although they say it’s in a really low quantity. I think one chewable vitamin has about 1.2 grams of sugar in it. I’m not a sugar expert, so I don’t know if that is good or bad but what I know for sure is that it would have been better if there was no sugar at all.
These gummies will ensure that you’re taking all the essential vitamins to maintain a fast and healthy hair growth, to help with the side effects of a poor nutrition, hair products, age and genetics. So basically, they will help you fall in love with your hair.
I would be lying if I said I saw major improvement in my hair after just one month of taking the vitamins BUT, I do see some changes. For the past 30 days I’ve been chewing two gummies per day as recommended. They tasted so good and although I wanted to have more, I decided to follow the instructions, practice some self control and limit myself to those two vitamins a day.
What I’ve noticed after this month is that my hair feels thicker and shinier. I don’t know if the shine is due to the fact that I’ve been using a new shampoo and conditioner, but it’s there guys and we can’t not acknowledge it.
Another thing that has been happening with my hair since I’ve started taking these vitamins is that it started growing faster. I never believed in this thing and you can call me delusional but my hair used to take ages to grow even a tiny bit and that’s why I never got dramatic haircuts, up until this summer when I decided to go short short. But now I feel like my hair is going full speed ahead to being long again and I do think that the vitamins might have something to do with it.
One final change that I’ve noticed in my hair, and probably the most important one and which makes me the happiest gal on the planet is that it doesn’t break that much. I repeat…my hair is not falling like crazy anymore. I had periods when I was literally shedding, and I know it is a natural process, especially for someone who styles their hair quite a lot and using a lot of heat, but sometimes I would get really worried about it. Anyway, now my hair falls in a decent quantity and it doesn’t really break anymore when I brush it or style it.
Overall, I’m really impressed with these vitamins and I would definitely be taking them again. I never really thought some gummies could have a positive impact on my hair and actually help keeping it strong and healthy. Obviously the changes didn’t happen from the first day. It takes a little bit of time and patience to start seeing some results but for me it was definitely worth it. This was the first time I was lured into buying something that was continuously advertised on Instagram and luckily it was a hit. I’m not saying you should trust everything on Instagram but I do recommend the Hairburst chewable hair vitamins!
I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know in the comments below if you’ve ever tried any of these hair gummies or if you’ve ever bought something just because you’ve seen it on Instagram!
