5 Hair Vitamins Stylists Actually Take Themselves
There seems to be a resurgence in the popularity of hair vitamins. (It's safe to say we can thank Kylie Jenner for that.) We all want strong, healthy hair, so when we're told we can take a vitamin to get the hair of our dreams, we will spend our entire paycheck buying enough bottles to last us a lifetime.
Since Instagram is pretty much our version of infomercials, it is way too easy to get conned into buying something that is essentially just a gummy bear. We want something that actually works, so we turned to hairstylists to help us sort through all the clutter and find the best hair vitamins out there right now. Scroll down to see what their favourites are.
Nutrafol Advanced Thinning Hair & Hair Loss Supplement ($116)
"As a celebrity hairstylist, I've been asked numerous times about hair growth supplements. I've recently discovered Nutrafol as a hair growth supplement. The results have been amazing. There has been a noticeable difference in my hair in the three months that I've been taking it. My hair shows new growth, feels stronger, less dry, and has more vitality," says celebrity hairstylist Matthew Monzon.
Viviscal Hair Growth Supplements ($70)
"My go-to hair supplement is Viviscal Professional. This hair supplement is great for all types of hair. As we age, hair tends to grow weaker and thinner over time. It's important to ensure you have a diet rich in key nutrients to maintain a normal, healthy mane, and Viviscal supplements contain all of that in just one pill," says hairstylist Alisha Cheney of Bomane salon.
"I have been on Viviscal for years, and it has made my hair stronger, thicker, and longer. The biggest thing I've noticed while on it is it's kept my hair from shedding," says hairstylist Alysa Pace of Bomane salon.
Sugarbearhair Vitamins ($41)
"Clients have had really good results when taking [Sugarbearhair]. The active ingredients are vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin B6, folic acid, vitamin B12, biotin, pantothenic acid, iodine, zinc, choline, inositol. Mix those all together, and they increase health, strength, elasticity. For me, I like that there are no side effects—they are vegetarian, and the only animal cruelty is when you eat the bear-shaped gummies themselves. Did I mention they also are berry flavoured from real berries?" says hairstylist Ryan Sanger of Bomane salon.
